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.
