Boston Private Bank and Trust Co. has hired former Boston Bruin hockey star Derek Sanderson from State Street Global Advisors as a vice president and senior investment professional, to help it develop a line of business managing wealth for professional athletes.

Sanderson said he will bring with him the roster of athletes whose portfolios he had managed at State Street before the private asset management unit was sold last June. The 13-year professional hockey veteran had joined the unit of State Street Corp. in 2001 after establishing State Street Research Sports at State Street Research, a Boston unit of Metropolitan Life Insurance, to manage assets for current and former athletes.
