      Bruins' Brett Connolly: Stays on Bergeron line

      Connolly skated Tuesday morning on a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Though Matt Beleskey could return to action Tuesday against the Coyotes, it looks like Connolly will continue to skate on Bergeron's re-tooled line. After a slow start in which he did not record a point, while recording a minus-5 mark in three games to start the season, Connolly has bounced back nicely with two goals and an assist, to go along with a plus-2 rating over his last three outings.

      Bruins' Brett Connolly: Scores first goal of season in loss

      Connolly scored a goal in 16:22 worth of ice time in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Flyers. Connolly had a successful return to the ice on Wednesday after being a healthy scratch in the Bruin's previous game. In the first period, he knocked in Patrice Bergeron's deflected shot for his first goal of the season. This was the second game played by Connolly this season for which he's notched a point.

      Bruins' Brett Connolly: Will be healthy scratch Saturday against Arizona

      With Brad Marchand (concussion) returning to the Bruins' lineup, Brett Connolly is set to be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Coyotes, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports. Connolly played pretty well in Marchand's place on the Bruins' top line Wednesday against the Avalanche, managing to tally an assist and one shot on goal in the tilt. He'll watch Saturday's game from the press box, and may need to wait for another injury to a Bruins' forward to draw back into Boston's lineup.

      Bruins' Brett Connolly: Set to fill in for Marchand

      Heading into Monday's game against the Lightning, Connolly is in line to fill in for Brad Marchand on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Loui Eriksson. Through two games, Connolly has not recorded a point and has recorded a minus-4 rating, but a move up to Bergeron's line could spark an uptick in opportunities for the 23-year-old winger, who will face his former team on Monday. It remains to be seen how long the newly-formed trio will stick, but with that in mind, it's worth noting that Marchand is dealing with a concussion and at this stage it's unclear when he'll be back in action.

    • Connolly Inks One-Year Deal With Bruins

      News: Brett Connolly signed a one-year, $1.025 million contract with the Bruins on Monday.
      Analysis: In the wake of the departures of fellow forwards Carl Soderberg and Milan Lucic this offseason, Brett Connolly -- whom the Bruins obtained from Tampa Bay this past March -- has a real shot at sliding into the team's top-six forward mix in 2015-16. The 6-2, 181-pound winger tallied 12 goals and 17 points in 55 NHL games overall last season, and at age 23, the 2010 first-rounder could be poised for a break-out in his first full campaign with the B's.
    • RFA Connolly Gets Qualifying Offer From Bruins

      News: The Bruins have extended a qualifying offer to Brett Connolly, reports.
      Analysis: The same applies to fellow forward Ryan Spooner, with both restricted free agents ticketed for regular duty this coming season, more so with the the team having parted ways with forwards Carl Soderberg and Milan Lucic. While it's too early to get a great read on how the B's lines might shake out next season, Brett Connolly has a shot to land a top-six role and in such a scenario, he could emerge on the fantasy radar. He's coming off a 2014-15 campaign in which he recorded 12 goals and 17 points in 55 NHL games, including five in a Boston uniform following his trade from Tampa Bay.
    • Productive Bruins Debut For Connolly

      News: Brett Connolly, making his return from a finger injury and his Bruins debut, was key to Thursday's comeback win over Detroit, assisting on his team's first goal as well as the game-winner late in the third period.
      Analysis: He skated just a modest 12:44 in his first game as a Bruin, but certainly fit right in despite having missed a month of action thanks to the finger issue. Brett Connolly never got a great chance in Tampa Bay, but it wouldn't be terribly surprising to see 2010's No. 6 overall pick flourish in Boston.
    • Bruins' Connolly Set To Make Debut Thursday

      News: Brett Connolly (finger) is taking part in line rushes during the Bruins' pregame warmups, suggesting he'll play Thursday against the Red Wings, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
      Analysis: Acquired by the Bruins prior to the trade deadline, Brett Connolly suffered a broken finger in his second practice with the team and missed a month due to the injury. He was initially projected to sit out the rest of the season, but improved quicker than anticipated and now looks poised to make his long-awaited team debut. The winger is slated to skate on the fourth line with Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell.
    • Bruins' Connolly Could Play Thursday

      News: When asked if Brett Connolly (finger) will play Thursday against Detroit, coach Claude Julien said "we'll see."
      Analysis: Brett Connolly's status for the contest probably won't be clarified until pre-game warmups, though if he does suit up, he'll likely debut on the B's fourth line, making him a speculative fantasy play in such a scenario.
    • Bruins' Connolly Poised To Return

      News: Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe suggests that there's a good chance that Brett Connolly (finger) will suit up Thursday against the Red Wings.
      Analysis: "I feel good enough to go," Brett Connolly indicated. "I don't really think the finger can get worse. I think I'm pretty much ready to go." Look for added info on the winger's status to arrive following the Bruins' morning skate, but based on Wednesday's practice, if Connolly does join the B's lineup Thursday, he'll likely work on the team's fourth line.
