Bruins claim Ferraro off waivers from Detroit

Landon Ferraro has a new home.

Ferraro, who’s spent his entire career with the Red Wings organization, has been claimed off waivers by the Bruins. The move comes after the 24-year-old appeared in 10 games for Detroit this season, going scoreless with seven penalty minutes.

The son of longtime NHLer-turned-analyst Ray Ferraro, Landon was the 32nd overall pick in 2009 but spent most of his time in AHL Grand Rapids, never really claiming a full-time spot with the parent club, though he did play in all seven of Detroit’s opening-round playoff games against Tampa Bay last year.

With Boston, he could get an opportunity for a more significant role.

The team is dealing with some injuries up front. Chris Kelly is basically done for the year with a fractured femur, David Pastrnak is out with a foot injury and Frank Vatrano is dealing with an upper-body ailment.

Of course, Ferraro is dealing with a knee injury of his own, so it’s unclear when he’ll be available for the B’s.
