Bruins' Dennis Seidenberg to miss rest of season with ACL/MCL tear
Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL/MCL in his right knee Friday night.
The Boston Bruins got a dose of awful news Saturday when it was revealed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg requires surgery after tearing his ACL/MCL in his right knee. He will miss the remainder of the season with an expected recovery time of 6-8 months according to the Bruins.
Seidenberg was injured late in Friday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators.
The 32-year-old German rearguard had 10 points in 34 games this season and averaged more than 21 minutes a night for the Bruins. That will leave a big void in Boston’s defensive corps.
Zach Trotman has been recalled from the Providence Bruins on an emergency basis by Boston to replace the injured Seidenberg.
The Bruins signed Seidenberg to a four-year extension earlier this year worth $16 million. He has been a key player on Boston's blue line since coming over in a trade with the Florida Panthers in 2009-10.
The Bruins have been the class of the Eastern Conference for much of the season, but losing that depth on what has been a strong blue line to date is certainly going to hurt.
