Bruins' Chris Wagner: Underwent surgery on arm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner confirmed Monday that he underwent surgery on his arm to repair a displaced ulna.

Injury news continues to trickle in following the Bruins' loss to the Blues in the Stanley Cup Finals. Wagner, who last saw action May 14, was actually cleared to play in Game 7 of the series, so he'll presumably be back to full strength well before the team takes the ice again. The 28-year-old, who remains under contract with the Bruins through the 2019-20 season, ended up being a solid addition to the team, chipping in 12 goals and 19 points in 76 regular-season games, while mostly working on the team's fourth line. While the 6-foot, 198-pounder is off the radar in most fantasy formats, he does help out in leagues where his hits (147) factor in.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Out for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (forearm) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's Game 7 against the visiting Blues, per the NHL's media site.

Wagner had the chance to play the final game of the season even though coach Bruce Cassidy declared him "out for a while" earlier in the postseason. Unfortunately for him, he won't get that opportunity, as he will be in the press box Wednesday. Boston will roll with Karson Kuhlman as its 12th forward.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Could return for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (forearm) could be available if the series extends to a Game 7.

Wagner seemed likely to miss the remainder of the playoffs when coach Bruce Cassidy declared him "out for a while" earlier in the postseason, but a win Sunday could put the winger back on the table Wednesday. For that to happen, the Bruins would need to steal Game 6 in St. Louis.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Set to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Cassidy acknowledged Sunday that Wagner (arm) clearly is "gonna be out for a while," Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.

Wagner suffered what appeared to be a significant injury while blocking a shot with his right arm in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final. He subsequently sat out Thursday's Game 4 and should be viewed as out indefinitely. In Wagner's absence, Noel Acciari is back on the Bruins' fourth line along with Joakim Nordstrom and Sean Kuraly.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Doubtful for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Don Sweeney said he would be "surprised" if Wagner (forearm) is ready to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Wagner returned to Boston for testing and was announced out indefinitely May 15. The Massachusetts native sustained the injury after blocking a shot during Boston's Game 3 win over Carolina in the Eastern Conference finals. There is speculation that Wagner could miss the championship series, but more information should become clear closer to Game 1 on May 27.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Returns to Boston for testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (forearm) has returned to Boston to undergo further testing and is considered out indefinitely, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Wagner underwent an X-ray on his forearm after blocking a shot during Tuesday's Game 3 win over the Hurricanes, and while the results of that scan have yet to be released, Haggerty suspects that the 27-year-old winger may be in danger of missing the rest of the postseason. More specifics regarding Wagner's condition should surface in the coming days, but for now, Noel Acciari will take his spot on the Bruins' fourth line.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Heading for X-rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner will undergo X-rays on his right arm after blocking a shot in Tuesday's Game 3 victory over the Hurricanes, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Wagner crouched to block a shot from Justin Faulk during the third period and was hit in the right forearm/wrist area, forcing him to leave the game. The severity of the injury should be clarified by the X-rays, but it's a potentially worrying sign the 27-year-old had his right arm in a sling after the game, per Joe McDonald of The Athletic. Noel Acciari (undisclosed) has been cleared and could be called upon should Wagner be forced to miss any time.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Returns to forward mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner will re-enter the Bruins' lineup for Game 1 of the team's second-round playoff series against Columbus on Thursday.

With Wagner -- who was held without a point in five games in the team's opening-round series versus the Maple Leafs -- back in the lineup, Karson Kuhlman is in line to be a scratch Thursday. Wagner scored a career-high 12 goals to go along with seven helpers in 76 regular-season games, while also racking up 247 hits -- a mark that ranked the winger fifth in the league in 2018-19.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Sitting out Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) will sit out again for Tuesday's Game 7 against the Maple Leafs, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.

Since Opening Night of the regular season, the Bruins have won three of seven games without Wagner. He's a fourth-line grinder who accumulated 13 hits over the first five games of these conference quarterfinals, but that single category can only take someone so far in the fantasy realm. The Bruins will try to compensate by giving more playing time to the likes of Karson Kuhlman and Noel Acciari.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Ruled out for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) will not suit up for Sunday's Game 6 matchup with Toronto.

The exact reasoning behind Wagner's absence isn't known. It's possible that the Massachusetts native is once again dealing with the lower-body injury that plagued him earlier in April. Coach Bruce Cassidy claims he wants to get "fresh legs" on the ice. Regardless, Karson Kuhlman and Joakim Nordstrom will both draw into the lineup to replace Wagner and David Backes.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Cleared for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) will return to the lineup for Thursday's Game 1 against Toronto, NHL.com's Eric Russo reports.

Wagner missed the final two games of the regular season due to a lower-body injury, but he was always expected to be ready for Game 1 of Boston's first-round series. The 27-year-old American is expected to slot into a bottom-six role Thursday, skating with Noel Acciari and Joakim Nordstrom on the Bruins' fourth line.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) will not dress again Saturday against the Lightning.

Wagner will sit out his third game of the last four with the playoffs around the corner. It seems likely he will be ready to roll for the postseason, but more information on that front should arise as Game 1 approaches. Either way, Wagner shouldn't be overly popular in the majority of playoff pools given his 19 points through 76 games.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Won't suit up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) won't play Thursday against the Wild.

Wagner is slated to rest his lower-body injury Thursday, which could allow him to return to action for the team's regular-season finale Saturday against the Lightning. In Wagner's absence, Zach Senyshyn is set to make his NHL debut against Minnesota.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Back in business
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (lower body) was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

Wagner sat out Sunday's game against the Red Wings, but he was back at work Tuesday morning, skating on Boston's third line with Marcus Johansson and Charlie Coyle. Through 75 games, Wagner has recorded a career-high 12 goals and 18 points, an effort that earned him the team's 7th Player Award, presented to the player who exceeded the expectations of Bruins fans this season.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Dealing with lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Wagner will miss Sunday's game against Detroit due to a lower-body injury. He is day-to-day.

Wagner's late scratch makes much more sense now with that he's officially dealing with an injury.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Scratched Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner was not on the ice for warmups in Detroit on Sunday.

There was no word about an injury so it appears that Wagner may be a healthy scratch. Rookie Karson Kuhlman is expected to take his spot in the lineup.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Continues career season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner backhanded in his 10th goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Hurricanes.

The goal gives Wagner 16 points on the season -- good for a new career high. He has also developed a bit of a hot streak recently, with four goals and five points in his last nine games.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Scores controversial equalizer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner's eighth goal of the year forced overtime, where the Bruins prevailed 6-5 over the Sharks on Monday.

There was some controversy as to whether or not Wagner tallied the goal with a high stick, but it will count officially. He also fought with Sharks defenseman Justin Braun in the contest. Wagner has 13 points in 57 games this year, but with two shots Monday, he now has 103 attempts on goal as well.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Dents empty twine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner potted an empty-net goal in Friday's 3-0 win over the Ducks.

Wagner's seventh tally of the year meant there would be no late comeback for the Ducks. He added three hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating while getting third-line usage in the contest. Wagner now has 12 points in 55 contests, but also owns 193 hits, which ranks him sixth in the league.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Continues to throw hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner gave out a game-high seven hits during a 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Wagner is now fifth in the league for hits with 181 in total. Head coach Bruce Cassidy must like what he sees from the Massachusetts native, as he has given his fourth line of Wagner, Sean Kuraly and Noel Acciari larger responsibility within the last month. They now regularly see over 13 minutes of ice time per game.
