Grzelyck had surgery on his shoulder Friday and is expected to miss the next five months. It was announced that Grzelyck would undergo surgery this offseason and now he's officially expected to be out until roughly early November. Three different Bruins defensemen went under the knife Friday, so the team's blue line figures to be fairly thin to begin next season.
Grzelcyk will undergo shoulder surgery and is expected to miss the start of the 2022-23 campaign, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports. Grzelcyk doesn't have a set timetable and he likely won't until closer to training camp. The 28-year-old posted a minus-6 rating through five games this postseason before missing the final two contests. He averaged 18:44 of ice time while adding 24 points in 73 games during the regular season.
Grzelcyk (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's Game 7 against Carolina, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports. Grzelcyk played the first five games of the series -- going scoreless while averaging 18:09 of ice time -- but sat out Game 6 with his undisclosed injury. If the Bruins advance past Carolina to Round 2, it's unclear when the 28-year-old blueliner might be able to return.
Grzelcyk (undisclosed) won't play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Hurricanes, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports. Grzelcyk has evidently been "playing through stuff," so he'll sit Thursday's potential elimination game out. If the Bruins aren't able to force a Game 7, Grzelcyk will finish the year having collected 24 points through 73 regular-season contests and zero points through five postseason appearances.
Grzelcyk (rest) will not play Friday in Toronto, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Grzelcyk will be joined by seven other Bruins resting in advance of the postseason, which starts Monday. He finishes his age-28 season having recorded 24 points, a plus-22 rating and 118 shots on goal -- all of which are new career highs.
