Two More Bruins To Miss Start of 2022-23 Season

Three more Boston Bruins have undergone significant surgeries, with two of them joining the growing list of those that won’t be ready for the start of next season. 

The Bruins report that top defenseman Charlie McAvoy is likely to be out until early December following a “shoulder arthroscopic stabilization procedure”. He’ll need six months of recovery time.

Matt Grzelcyk also needed shoulder stabilization surgery. His will require five months to return, meaning he could miss about a month of the season.

And yet another defenseman went under the knife, as Mike Reilly had ankle surgery to repair a tendon and remove bone fragments. He, however, should return around training camp. 

They all join Brad Marchand, who we learned last week will miss nearly two months of the 2022-23 season after undergoing double hip surgery. 

Could be a challenging start to the season for the B’s.
