Bergeron (foot) has yet to skate after fracturing his right foot Feb. 24 against the Maple Leafs, Bill Doyle of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports. Doyle also relayed from Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy that Bergeron is expected to miss the entire four-game road trip that wraps up March 17 in Tampa Bay. Surprisingly, the celebrated two-way pivot is not yet listed on injured reserve, but it seems like only a matter of time before that happens.
Bergeron will miss two weeks due to a fractured right foot, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. He will be re-evaluated after that period. Bergeron suffered the injury blocking a shot during Saturday's game against Toronto, but he was able to play through the injury Sunday. An updated timetable should surface following the two weeks, but his absence will leave the Bruins down a major asset during a significant stretch of the campaign. New addition Tommy Wingels should shuffle into the lineup when available, but it will be difficult for the B's to replace Bergeron's production of 54 points in 55 games. Riley Nash will replace him on the top line for Tuesday's affair, while David Backes has been promoted to the top power-play unit.
Bergeron (foot) skated for warmups and is expected to play Sunday in Buffalo, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Bergeron was stuck in a walking boot after picking up a pair of assists against the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Luckily for the Bruins -- and Bergeron's fantasy owners -- it looks like he's healthy and ready to go. The 32-year-old center has 27 goals and 54 points alongside a stellar plus-26 rating this season. Slot him back into all fantasy lineups.
Bergeron (foot) was seen wearing a walking boot as he entered the locker room before Sunday's game against Buffalo, John Wawrow of AP Sports reports. The severity of Bergeron's injury is still unknown, but his availability for Sunday's contest is certainly still in question since he's still donning the walking boot. NESN also reported that he was able to walk under his own power and that the injury wasn't considered serious, but with Boston in the thick of the Atlantic Division race, it certainly doesn't want to risk its star's health. Unless newly signed Brian Gionta is ready to go for Sunday's game, Boston doesn't have any spare forwards it could sit Bergeron for, so perhaps he'll play nonetheless.
Bergeron was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right leg after Saturday's 4-3 loss to Toronto, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports. Bergeron notched two assists during 19:15 of ice time Saturday to total 27 goals and 54 points through 54 games this campaign. Seeing as the Hart Trophy candidate was still able to play a full game, it signals that the boot may be a precautionary move. However, with the Bruins in the center of trade talks for the Rangers' Rick Nash and the Oilers' Patrick Maroon, a long-term injury to Bergeron could jolt their urgency to finalize a deal. The Bruins travel to Buffalo on Sunday, so expect a quick update on Bergeron's condition.
