Boston Bruins Goalie Placed on IR

With Jeremy Swayman already being deemed as week-to-week, the Boston Bruins have now placed the young goaltender on injured reserve. This move was made to create roster space to activate David Krejci off of IR.

Swayman was of course injured last week after Patrice Bergeron lost his balance and slid into the former's leg. Boston certainly is going to miss the Alaskan netminder, as he serves as a part of the Bruins' strong goalie tandem with Linus Ullmark. In four games this season, Swayman has a 2-1-0 record, .878 SV%, and 3.45 GAA.

Here's to hoping that Swayman has a speedy recovery and can get back on the ice for the Bruins shortly from here.
