  • Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Drives home slap shot Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Chara teed up from the blue line for his sixth goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Ducks.

    The giant rearguard was hanging around his typical spot from the left point when he received a laser pass from forward David Backes, proceeding to rifle the puck through three defenders and past Ducks goalie Jonathan Bernier. Chara now has two goals and three assists in six February games, but he's not getting much power-play time these days -- he's only averaging 28 seconds per game in that spot -- with an assist representing his lone marker on the man advantage through 53 games. The 39-year-old is garnering 23:09 of ice time, but it's been a bit painful to watch him lug his towering self about the ice in search of points. Expect inconsistent offensive production from Chara.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Strikes shorthanded against the Habs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/17) Chara scored a shorthanded goal in Sunday's win over Montreal.

    A clutch effort from Chara, who also piled on three assists in a game against Toronto recently. The 6'9" blueliner only has 16 points on the season, but he's been hot of late and continues to supply decent PIM. What hurts Chara's fantasy value is the fact he no longer plays on the power play, but his five even-strength goals make him worth owning in some deep leagues. His best years are behind him, but his recent play proves that he still possesses fantasy value.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Slated to return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Chara (illness) said that he had a good practice Friday and "should be good to go" for Saturday's game against the Canucks.

    While it can sometimes be difficult to trust players about their own health, the fact that Chara got a full practice in bodes well for his chances of playing Saturday and it seems safe to trust him at his word in this scenario. Despite the recent firing of coach Claude Julien, the Bruins put up six goals and allowed only three in Thursday's win over the Sharks, so it will be interesting to see how the veteran Chara fits into the post-Julien landscape when he returns.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Out sick Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/17) Chara (illness) will not suit up for Thursday night's matchup with the Sharks.

    Chara will miss his first game since he missed six at the end of November and beginning of December. Luckily, most illnesses don't tend to linger, so it's likely that the veteran blueliner will be healthy and ready to go on Saturday when the Canucks visit Boston. Kevan Miller is projected to take Chara's spot on the top defensive pairing, while John-Michael Liles will slot into the lineup on the third pairing.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Misses second straight practice with illness

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/17) Chara missed practice Wednesday for the second straight day, as he's tending to an illness, CSNNE.com reports.

    New Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy added that the towering defenseman will be a game-time decision for Thursday's home tilt versus the Sharks. Chara secured a season-high three helpers in his most recent game -- that was a 6-5 home loss to the Maple Leafs -- but he's struggled to a minus-7 rating since the calendar flipped to 2017, and further denting his fantasy stock is how he's barely logging any time on the man advantage these days.

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Boston coach Claude Julien postponed any talk about what's next for the Bruins. The end of a disappointing season was just too soon.
    April 10, 2015: Bruins' Chara Remains Busy
    Chara took two shots while seeing a team-high 25:39 worth of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.Unsurprisingly, Chara, who took a puck off his foot/ankle in Saturday's game and then appeared to get hit in a similar area Wednesday, per the Boston Globe, toughed it out in Thursday's key game, but if the B's don't get some help in the next couple of days, the big blueliner's offseason could begin as soon as Sunday.
