    Bruins' Chris Kelly: Breaks leg, out 6-to-8 months

    Kelly suffered a left femur fracture in Tuesday's game and will be sidelined 6-to-8 months. The extent of the injury that forced Kelly from Tuesday's game was not immediately known, but it turns out he suffered a serious injury that will require a lengthy recovery period. He has an outside shot to return during the postseason if the Bruins advance far enough, but his recovery timetable will prevent him from playing again during the regular season.

    Bruins' Chris Kelly: Exits Tuesday's game early with injury

    Kelly left Tuesday's game in the first period with an undisclosed injury. Kelly went down awkwardly after his left knee buckled on him in the neutral zone. He had to be helped to his feet and then to the locker room by the Bruins' training staff, which is never an encouraging sign. The Bruins should provide an update on the 34-year-old winger's status once they have an opportunity to evaluate him further.

    Bruins' Chris Kelly: Scores second goal of season in loss

    Kelly scored a shorthanded goal in the second period of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Flyers. He also recorded one hit and two blocked shots. Kelly snuck behind the Flyers' defense to deflect in Loui Eriksson's shot for his second goal of the season, and also the second score in his past three games. Kelly will look to keep the momentum going on Friday, when the Bruins play in New York against the Islanders.

    Bruins' Chris Kelly: Moves up to third line

    Kelly saw 14:02 worth of ice time in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning. Kelly, who moved up to the Bruins' third line Monday, due to line-shuffling caused by Brad Marchand's absence, has yet to record a point in three games out of the gate and remains off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of formats, on the heels of a 2014-15 campaign in which he recorded 28 points in 80 games.

  • Bruins Eyeing Kelly For Fourth-Line Center Role

    News: Chris Kelly is expected to slot in as the Bruins' fourth-line center to open training camp, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
    Analysis: Following an offseason rife with roster overhaul, the Bruins figure to audition several players next to Chris Kelly, one of the few holdovers from last season's squad. Kelly, who skated primarily on the wing in 2014-15, should offer the requisite leadership and penalty-kill skills demanded of a pivot on the energy line, but it won't translate to much offensive output. It seems highly unlikely the 34-year-old returns to the 20-goal, 39-point production he delivered in 2011-12.
  • Bruins' Kelly Records Assist On Tuesday

    News: Chris Kelly recorded an assist in 11:37 worth of ice time in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Stars.
    Analysis: Chris Kelly, who has points in three of his last five games, checks in with 24 points and 32 PIM in 52 games to date overall, numbers that give him modest fantasy utility. In real terms, however, the 34-year-old's experience, leadership and versatility remain valuable to the Bruins.
  • Bruins' Kelly Racks Up 17 PIM In Win

    News: Chris Kelly racked up 17 PIM in Thursday's win over the Rangers.
    Analysis: Chris Kelly more than doubled his previous output in the category for the season, as he managed just 13 PIM over his prior 42 games. The winger has been a capable bottom-six forward for the Bruins with five goals and 19 points on the campaign, but those numbers likely aren't deserving of attention in most fantasy leagues.
  • Red-Hot Kelly Adds Two More Helpers For Bruins

    News: Chris Kelly assisted twice in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.
    Analysis: Held in high regard by the Bruins for his strength on the penalty kill, Chris Kelly has inexplicably caught fire on the offensive end over the last several games. Currently skating on the third line with Loui Eriksson and Carl Soderberg, Kelly has recorded a point in five consecutive games. The 34-year-old's track record suggests that production won't last long, however, as he's never topped 40 points in his previous nine seasons.
  • Bruins' Kelly Scores In Win

    News: Chris Kelly scored on his only shot in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
    Analysis: Chris Kelly now has a point in four straight as he chipped in his first goal since October. He's got 12 points on the season, but just eight in 28 games before his current streak. The 34-year-old logs valuable minutes for the Bruins, but should only be considered in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.
  • Kelly Rejoins Bruins' Lineup

    News: Chris Kelly (upper body) saw 13:38 worth of ice time in Friday's win over the Jets.
    Analysis: Chris Kelly, who returned to the Bruins' forward mix Friday after missing two games, brings reliability and leadership to the table, but with two goals and eight points in 22 games to date, he's only an option in deeper fantasy formats.
