  • Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Effective in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/18/19) Chara picked up an assist and a fighting major during a 5-2 win over the Blues on Thursday.

    It has been a down season offensively for the 41-year-old, but Chara still manages to be an effective presence in nearly every game he plays. His fight with Patrick Maroon in Thursday's contest was his first of the season -- he's averaged two fights per season the last few years.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Breaks long point drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/19) Chara tallied an assist during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs, breaking a 15-game pointless streak.

    The Bruins no longer look towards Chara for points with defensemen like Torey Krug and Charlie McAvoy on the ice, but it's nice to see the big man factor into the scoresheet. With only five points in 26 games this season, he is on pace to put up his lowest point total since 2001.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Back at it Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/18) Chara (knee) will be in action against he Devils on Thursday, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.

    The towering defenseman returns to action after missing the past 19 games. Even at 41 years old, Chara still manages to log a good amount of rink run -- he's averaged 21:30 through 18 games this season -- and his return for the upcoming game couldn't have come at a better time since second-year phenom Charlie McAvoy will not play due to a lower-body injury.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Out next two games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/18) Chara (knee) won't play Saturday against Nashville or Sunday against the Hurricanes, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Chara was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, so he's definitely trending in the right direction, but he'll have to wait for Thursday's matchup with the Devils for his next opportunity to return to the lineup. The Bruins may opt to ease the veteran blueliner back into action once he's given the all-clear, as he's been sidelined for over a month due to a knee injury.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Returns to ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/20/18) Chara (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.

    The Bruins' top shut-down blueliner still isn't ready for contact, so his return to action is not yet imminent, but Chara is getting closer by the day. The 41-year-old, who last suited up Nov. 14, logged three goals and four points in 18 games prior to suffering his MCL injury.
