Report: G Chad Johnson signs one-year deal with Bruins

Former Phoenix Coyotes and AHL Portland Pirates goaltender Chad Johnson is headed to Beantown.

AHL beat writer Chris Roy tweeted Johnson agreed to terms with the Boston Bruins on a one-year contract.

The Coyotes called up Johnson to serve as their backup netminder at the beginning of the 2012-2013 season after starting goaltender Mike Smith suffered a lower body injury.

The 6'3", 195-pound Calgary native played in four games for the Coyotes last season. He went 2-0-2 with a 1.21 GAA and .954 save percentage.

The Coyotes also parted ways with backup goaltender Jason LaBarbera on Thursday, who went on to sign with Edmonton. Phoenix then agreed to a one-year contract with his replacement free agent netminder Thomas Greiss earlier Friday.
