  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Full workload in return

    Forbort recorded two hits, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Lightning.

    Making his return from an 11-game absence due to a finger injury, Forbort didn't make an impact on offense but took a regular shift and even led the Bruins by playing 2:05 on the penalty kill. The 30-year-old blueliner further reinforces a Boston squad that didn't exactly need the help, as the Bruins lead the league with a 2.18 team GAA and extended their NHL record home winning streak to begin the season to 13 games.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Ready to rock

    Forbort (finger) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Forbort had been out since Nov. 1 following surgery on his right middle finger. The Bruins waived Anton Stralman on Monday to clear up a roster spot. Forbort has posted one goal, two assists, eight shots on net, 18 blocks and 27 hits in 10 games this season.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Could return Tuesday

    Forbort (finger) stands a chance to return to the lineup Tuesday versus Tampa Bay, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Forbort, who was on the ice for Monday's practice, has to clear some final tests before he receives the green light to play. He has been out since Nov. 1 after undergoing surgery on his right middle finger.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: On long-term injured reserve list

    Forbort (finger) has been moved to the long-term injured reserve list, according to PuckPedia.

    Forbort had open reduction and internal fixation surgery on his finger Nov. 3. As of that date, his projected timetable was 4-6 weeks. Moving him to the long-term injured reserve list helped keep the Bruins cap compliant after they activated Charlie McAvoy (shoulder).

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Undergoes finger surgery

    Forbort had open reduction and internal fixation surgery on his right middle finger Thursday.

    Forbort is expected to need 4-6 weeks to recover. He left Tuesday's game after being hit by the puck. He has a goal and three points in 10 games this season. With Forbort unavailable, Mike Reilly drew back into the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Labeled week-to-week

    Forbort (upper body) is considered week-to-week and has returned to Boston to undergo further evaluation, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports Thursday.

    Forbort's timeline shouldn't come as a huge surprise after he was designated for injured reserve Wednesday and is already going to miss at least the next three games as a result. With Forbort on the shelf, Mike Reilly and Jakub Zboril seem poised to share the final spot in the lineup, though Anton Stralman could find himself watching from the press box periodically as well.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Set to miss time

    Forbort (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Forbort will be out for at least the next three games after sustaining an upper-body injury Tuesday. The 30-year-old will be eligible to return Nov. 10 versus the Flames, but it's unclear what kind of timeline he's facing with this injury. Jakub Zboril and Mike Reilly will compete for playing time in Forbort's absence.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Suffers upper-body injury

    Forbort (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Penguins.

    Forbort sustained the injury in the first period of the contest. The 30-year-old caught a puck in what appeared to be the arm or hand, and it's enough to keep him out of the rest of the game. Forbort's status should be updated before Thursday's game versus the Rangers -- if he can't play, Mike Reilly may return to the lineup.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Snaps point drought with assist

    Forbort notched an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.

    Forbort helped out on Craig Smith's opening tally in the first period. The assist snapped Forbort's 12-game point drought. The 29-year-old defenseman is more regarded for his physical play -- he's at 10 points with 81 hits, 60 blocked shots, 44 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in 51 appearances. His low-scoring style isn't likely to help most fantasy managers.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Supplies assist in win

    Forbort notched an assist and blocked two shots in Friday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Forbort logged the secondary helper on Erik Haula's opening tally in the first period. The 29-year-old Forbort has logged two assists in seven games since he cleared the COVID-19 protocols. The defenseman isn't known for much offense -- he's at nine points, 35 shots on net, 59 hits, 46 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through 38 appearances. He'll likely continue to play in a bottom-four role.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Clears protocols

    Forbort cleared COVID-19 protocols and returned to practice Friday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Forbort had been in virus protocols since Monday and missed three games. The 29-year-old, who has four goals and three assists in 31 contests this season, should rejoin Boston's third defense pairing Saturday versus Nashville.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Will not play Monday

    Forbort is experiencing "testing issues" that will prevent him from appearing Monday against Washington.

    Forbort's specific issue is unclear, but complications with the NHL's virus precautions will result in him missing his first contest of the season. The 29-year-old has averaged 18:34 of ice time and tallied two assists through his last 10 games.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Placed in protocols

    Forbort was added to the COVID-19 list Monday.

    Forbort and teammate Connor Clifton both landed on the list after experiencing "testing issues" Monday. The 29-year-old blueliner could exit protocols in time for Wednesday's matchup with Montreal. He has seven points while averaging 18:31 of ice time through 31 games this season.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: First career NHL two-goal game

    Forbert scored twice in Boston's 5-2 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday.

    It was his first career two-goal game in the NHL, and his four goals are the most he's ever potted in an NHL season. Forbert's first came off a point shot that deflected off the stick of a defender and past Martin Jones. The second was through a screen and stood as the winner. Forbert isn't a fantasy guy; this was just a career night.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Collects first goal with new squad

    Forbort had a goal and assist in Sunday's 4-3 win over San Jose. He also picked up three blocks and two shots.

    Forbort gave the Bruins an early 2-0 lead when his point shot from along the wall handcuffed San Jose netminder Adin Hill. It was his first goal in a Bruins uniform. He also assisted on Jake DeBrusk's goal early in the second period. The Bruins signed Forbort to a three-year deal in the offseason to provide a steady hand defensively -- he's never topped 18 points in a season -- so any performances like the one he produced Sunday are a bonus.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Pens three-year deal with Boston

    Forbort signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Forbort appeared in all 56 games with the Jets last season, picking up 12 points, 80 hits and 115 blocks while averaging 20:44 of ice time per contest. The 29-year-old blueliner should slot in as a dependable bottom-four option and penalty-killer with Boston in 2021-22.

  • Jets' Derek Forbort: Unlikely goal in Game 1

    Forbort scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Montreal in Game 1.

    The American rearguard scored just his third goal of this calendar year on a nice feed from Pierre-Luc Dubois to give the Jets life in the third. Forbort logged 22:00 of ice time in the contest, providing a hit and a shot on goal in the process.

  • Jets' Derek Forbort: Chips in with assist

    Forbort posted an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Canucks.

    Forbort helped out on a Mason Appleton tally in the third period. The assist was Forbort's second in the last three games, although he had gone 10 outings without a point prior to that. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to 12 points, 66 shots on net, 79 hits, 113 blocked shots and 35 PIM through 55 appearances.

  • Jets' Derek Forbort: Well-rounded effort in thriller

    Forbort supplied an assist, three hits, and six blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Canadiens.

    Forbort was the unsung hero in the contest as he made life easier for goalie Connor Hellebuyck and asserted himself on both ends of the ice. His offensive stat totals aren't noteworthy, but it is worth knowing that he's averaging 21:09 of ice time -- easily a career high.
