McAvoy (undisclosed) will play Sunday against the Senators, per Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy. McAvoy was shaken up after a late hit from Toronto's Zach Hyman in the third period of Saturday's game, but Cassidy has deemed the prolific offensive defenseman good to go. McAvoy receiving the green light to play even before pregrame warmups lends further credence to the notion that he didn't suffer a lasting injury in the latest contest.
McAvoy (undisclosed) is questionable to play Sunday against host Ottawa, Callum Fraser of NHL.com reports. McAvoy was on the receiving end of a huge hit by Toronto's Zach Hyman on Saturday, with the NHL's Department of Player Safety considering a suspension for the winger. It sounds like the Bruins will wait until pregame warmups to determine whether McAvoy will be fit to play in the upcoming contest, so prepare alternatives in fantasy in case he can't go. Remember, McAvoy missed 20 games with a concussion, so the B's could handle the situation delicately.
McAvoy (concussion) returned to action Thursday against the Lightning, with the defenseman posting two hits, two empty shots on goal, a minor penalty and minus-1 rating over 21:02 of ice time. The Bruins suffered a 3-2 road loss, but McAvoy -- who had missed 20 straight games -- looked lively in this one. He'll try to hit the scoresheet for the seventh time this season in Saturday's home game against the Maple Leafs.
McAvoy (concussion) will play Thursday against Tampa Bay, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports. McAvoy returns after missing 20 games with a concussion. The 20-year-old has been limited to seven games this season, posting a goal and five assists in those contests. To make room for McAvoy, Jeremy Lauzon will be a healthy scratch.
McAvoy (concussion) will participate in warmups Thursday and could return to the lineup against the Lightning if all goes well, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports. McAvoy was activated from injured reserve earlier Thursday, which signifies that he's nearly ready to play. Should he make it through warmups without issue, look for McAvoy to rejoin the pairings and the power play unit as he looks to add to his six points over seven games this season.
