  • Chara (knee) is specifically dealing with a left MCL injury and he'll be checked out again in four weeks, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports. The towering blueliner reportedly could be shelved for up to six weeks, so don't be surprised if he gets placed on injured reserve. Boston's really hurting on the blue line, with four of its defenders on IR and two more trending in that direction.

  • Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Reportedly out 4-6 weeks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Chara is reportedly in line to miss four-to-six weeks due to a left knee injury, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. With three goals and four points to go along with 14 PIM in 18 games to date, Chara's fantasy value these days is modest, but the 41-year-old's leadership and shut-down ability are key to the Bruins' blue line corps. Moreover, the team is also dealing with injuries to Charlie McAvoy (concussion), Brandon Carlo (upper body), Kevan Miller (hand), John Moore (lower body) and Urho Vaakanainen (concussion). All of that has led to the recent NHL introduction of rookies Jakub Zboril and Connor Clifton. Back in September, Boston's perceived surplus of NHL-caliber defensemen led to the trade of rugged Adam McQuaid, but now it looks like the B's must weather at least a month without the veteran anchor of their blue line and hope that others are able to return to action sooner rather than later.

  • Chara (lower body) will return to Boston to be reevaluated by team doctors. The severity of Chara's lower-body injury remains a mystery, but considering he's been sent home, one can safely assume that Chara will miss the next three games, all of which are road contests. Expect the team to provide more details in the coming days.

  • Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Leaves with injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Chara left Wednesday's game against the Avalanche with a lower-body injury and did not return. There's no official designation beyond "lower body" at the moment, but there is some speculation that it may be a knee injury. The 41-year-old defenseman is not a major offensive force anymore. He had only 24 points last season, and he essentially doesn't play on the power play any longer. That all being said, coming into this matchup he had averaged 22:27 per game in ice time, so if he's out, the Bruins will have quite a few minutes to fill. Jakub Zboril may be the man to get the call.

  • Chara threw three shots on goal during a 4-1 win over the Golden Knights on Sunday. Although still a useful defender at 41 years-old, Chara's points will be few and far between. Shots and blocks come easily for the big man, but considering his point totals have decreased for the past three seasons he should not be close to being anyone's main option in fantasy.
