Boston Bruins Forward to Miss Next Game

While speaking with the media, Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery said that Jake DeBrusk will miss Saturday's game against the Arizona Coyotes due to an upper-body injury. However, he did provide some good news with this unfortunate occurrence, as he note that DeBrusk will be back sooner than they originally expected. 

Montgomery did not provide much clarity on an expected return for DeBrusk, but his words make it seem that this could be a short-term ailment. The Bruins will certainly be hoping that this is the case, as they are already dealing with several injuries to key players. Losing a top-six winger DeBrusk long-term would certainly be a massive blow because of it. 

In 77 games last season, DeBrusk scored 25 goals and recorded 42 points.
