McAvoy (upper body) was activated from injured reserve for Tuesday's game versus the Sabres, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. McAvoy is back in the lineup after missing the last four games. The 23-year-old was on an impressive pace before this injury, producing four goals and 22 points through 35 games. He'll man the top defensive pairing and one of the power-play units Tuesday.
McAvoy (upper body) is a game-time decision for Tuesday night's game against the Sabres, according to coach Bruce Cassidy. McAvoy worked with Jeremy Lauzon on the Bruins' top defensive pairing during Tuesday morning's skate, so it looks like he's trending toward a return to action, barring any pre-game setbacks. In 35 contests this season, McAvoy has recorded four goals and 22 points while providing the Boston back line with an outstanding all-around presence.
McAvoy (upper body) was placed on injured reserve but skated Sunday and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Buffalo, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports. McAvoy has already missed the last four games with his upper-body issue, so his placement on injured reserve won't affect his timetable to return. The 23-year-old has 22 points through 35 games and will be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's contest.
McAvoy (upper body) is not expected to suit up for Sunday's game against Washington but could return Tuesday against Buffalo, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. McAvoy was already ruled out for Saturday's tilt with Philadelphia but it appears that Boston will be without its top defenseman all weekend. The 23-year-old has missed the last two games but was able to skate in practice, suggesting his absence likely won't linger much longer.
Though McAvoy (upper body) is "feeling better," per coach Bruce Cassidy, the blueliner won't play either Thursday against the Capitals or Saturday against the Flyers. The report suggests that McAvoy could be back in action as soon as Sunday against Washington, an indication that his unspecified upper-body issue isn't a long-term concern. In the meantime, McAvoy will be sorely missed by the Bruins, as the 23-year-old has been a dominating back line presence for the team this season en route to recording four goals and 22 points to go along with a plus-10 rating in 35 games.
