Ferraro (upper body) took part in line rushes during pregame warmups, indicating he will play Thursday against the Canucks. Ferraro, who has registered seven points (three goals, four assists) in 25 games with the Bruins this season, will skate alongside Zac Rinaldo and Maxime Talbot on Boston's fourth line in Thursday's tilt.
Ferraro (lower body) was on the ice during Thursday's optional practice prior to the Bruins' evening game against the Canucks, CSN New England reports. That said, per coach Claude Julien, the forward's status remains day-to-day, though a decision on his availability for the contest could come Thursday afternoon, effectively making Ferraro a game-time decision.
Ferraro is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Ferraro missed Tuesday's game because of the upper-body issue, but remains just day-to-day because of it. He hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Canucks, but he should have a refreshed status again at some point prior to the opening face-off Thursday.
Ferraro sat out Tuesday's game against the Canadiens with an upper body injury, NHL.com reports. There's not much info about what exactly is ailing Ferraro, so it's safest to consider him day-to-day unless we hear otherwise. The center has three goals and four assists through 35 games on the year, so his absence should only affect the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Ferraro had a busy night Wednesday, registering a goal, five hits and four blocked shots in a 3-1 win over the Canadiens. Ferraro has been quite the find for the Bruins, snagging the young forward off waivers in late November after he picked up just one goal for his only point between 17 games, and played sparingly over three campaigns with Detroit. Ferraro has registered three goals and two assists since first donning a Bruins sweater Nov. 23, and that's plenty of damage offensively for a skater currently in the group of bottom-six forwards. Blazing speed and two-way ability are the main qualities for Ferraro, and it looks like the Bruins are making the Wing's loss very much their own gain.
