BOSTON (CP) - The Boston Bruins bought out veteran forwards Shawn McEachern and Travis Green on Friday.

Each player had one year remaining on his contract and will receive 75 per cent of what he was to make. Both are also free to test the free agent market starting Saturday.

"We are going in a different direction with our team next season," said interim Bruins GM Jeff Gorton. "We felt that this was the best thing for both the team and the players at this time."

McEachern was scheduled to earn $1.1 million US next season while Green was to have made $700,000. They will receive $825,000, and $525,000, respectively.

McEachern, 37, has played 14 NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, Boston, Ottawa and Atlanta. He has 256 goals and 323 assists for 579 points in 911 career games and won a Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 1992.

Green, 35, has played 13 seasons with the New York Islanders, Anaheim, Phoenix, Toronto and Boston. The native of Castlegar, B.C., has 192 goals and 261 assists for 453 points in 939 games.
