Bruins' Chris Wagner: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Lightning in Game 5 on Monday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

Wagner has just one point in his previous 10 appearances, so fantasy players are unlikely to notice his absence. Boston is also facing the possibility of being without Sean Kuraly (undisclosed) and Nick Ritchie (undisclosed) who are both game-time decisions. If that's the case, the Bruins figure to utilize Jack Studnicka and Anders Bjork.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) will sit out Monday's Game 5 versus the Lightning, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Wagner was injured during Saturday's loss, and he'll now miss Monday's game, which will be the Bruins' last of the season if they lose. Anders Bjork and Trent Frederic are candidates to replace Wagner on the fourth line.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Absent from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) didn't appear on the Bruins' bench to start the third period, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

There haven't been any reports clarifying Wagner's absence, but there should be an update from head coach Bruce Cassidy in the near future. He played 6:33 and recorded one shot on net before exiting.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Another productive effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on two shots and piled up a game-high six hits in Wednesday's 3-2 round-robin loss to Tampa Bay.

Wagner tipped a Zdeno Chara point shot to tie the game early in the middle period, his second goal in as many games after scoring only six times during the regular season. The veteran role player is making the most of his limited minutes and has amassed 11 hits through the first two games.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Picks up lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a goal on three shots and had a team-leading five hits Sunday in a 4-1 loss to the Flyers.

Wagner got the Bruins on the board late in the second period, slamming a wraparound attempt off the skate of a Philadelphia defenseman and past netminder Carter Hart. The 29-year-old depth forward had six goals and four assists in 67 regular-season games.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (undisclosed) is on the ice for practice Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Wagner missed Boston's previous two practices with an undisclosed issue, but barring any setbacks, he should be good to go for the team's first round-robin game against the Flyers on Aug. 2. The 29-year-old winger picked up six goals and 10 points in 67 games during the regular season.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner missed Monday's practice session, Conor Ryan of reports.

Wagner joins Ondrej Kase, David Pastrnak and Charlie McAvoy on the "unfit to participate" list. The team is running out of time to get its lineup fully fit before the first round-robin clash with Philadelphia on Aug. 2. If Wagner is unable to play, Anton Blidh or Karson Kuhlman figures to get onto the ice.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Available for Tuesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) will play in Tuesday's game versus the Lightning, Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe reports.

Wagner will return after just one game on the mend, and he'll slot into the fourth line. The 28-year-old doesn't bring much offensive upside -- he has 10 points over 63 games -- but his physical presence (180 hits) will be integral as the division-leading Bruins stare down the second-place Lightning.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) practiced Monday, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Wagner missed Saturday's game against the Islanders, but he was sporting a regular practice jersey Monday while skating on the Bruins' fourth line with Sean Kuraly and Par Lindholm. Through 63 games, Wagner has recorded six goals and 10 points, numbers that limit his fantasy utility to formats where his hit totals (180) factor in.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Unavailable against Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Islanders, Marisa Ingemi of the Boston Herald reports.

Wagner isn't traveling with the team, and it's unclear if he'll join the team when it heads south for a two-game trip against Tampa Bay and Florida, respectively. Karson Kuhlman will enter the lineup in Wagner's place.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) won't travel with the Bruins for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Conor Ryan of reports.

The fourth-liner is considered day-to-day in advance of Tuesday's road game against the Lightning, so it's possible he'll rejoin the team before that contest. With Wagner sidelined, Joakim Nordstrom looks likely to rejoin the Bruins' lineup Saturday.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Suffers upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner (upper body) is unlikely to return to Thursday's game against the Stars.

Wagner tussled with the Stars' Mattias Janmark late in the second period, which earned the Bruins' winger a roughing minor. At the start of the third, Wagner did not return to the penalty box. If he ultimately isn't able to return, the Bruins' next game is Saturday against the Islanders -- expect an update on his status before then.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Ends long goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner netted a goal on four shots and added five hits in Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Canucks.

Wagner got a second attempt on a rebound, pushing it past Jacob Markstrom for the Bruins' third and final goal of the game. The winger entered Saturday with no points, 55 hits and 19 PIM in his last 18 games. Wagner is up to nine points, 72 shots, 175 hits and 36 PIM through 61 contests.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Throws the body
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner threw a game-high seven hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.

Wagner has been struggling offensively in recent weeks, picking up only one point in his last 19 games. His seven hits, however, are the second-most he's recorded in a game this season. The Massachusetts native leads the Bruins with 138 hits on top of his eight points through 48 games.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Ends long goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner scored a short-handed goal on two shots in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Predators.

Wagner scored shorthanded just under three minutes into the third period to give the Bruins a 4-1 lead. It was Wagner's first goal in exactly a month, halting a personal 12-game drought. Wagner isn't asked to be an offensive contributor for the Bruins -- he has just four goals and eight points in 42 games -- in his bottom-six role.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Lays body
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner collected four hits in a 3-0 shutout of the Sabres on Friday.

Wagner was a healthy scratch in the team's last game against the Capitals but returned to the lineup with force against Buffalo. The 28-year-old isn't an offensive dynamo with only three goals and seven points in 37 games, but he leads the Bruins in hits with 100.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Scores short handed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner tallied a short-handed goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

It was Wagner's first goal in 17 games and sixth point on the season. His goal brought the Bruins within one as they came back from being down 3-0 in the third. The tally was the Bruins' first short-handed goal this season after the team scored seven last year.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Inks three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner signed a three-year, $4.05 million contract extension with the Bruins on Wednesday.

Wagner has been a solid bottom-six contributor for Boston over the past two campaigns, notching 24 points while racking up 312 hits in 99 games. He'll continue to be a physical force up front for the Bruins over the next three seasons, but his lack of offensive upside will keep him off the fantasy radar in formats that don't reward the rough stuff.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Piles up penalty minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner picked up seven penalty minutes with one hit and two blocks in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

Wagner and Curtis Lazar dropped the gloves in Thursday's contest, both receiving fighting majors and a roughing minor. After ending last season fourth on the team with 51 PIM, Wagner has stayed out of the box thus far this season with only 11 PIM in 21 appearances.

Bruins' Chris Wagner: Picks up fourth helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wagner picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Montreal.

The usual fourth-line pair of Wagner and Sean Kuraly has been given more ice time than usual this season. Both are currently sporting the highest average ice time of their careers, with Wagner at 13:54 and Kuraly at 14:36. With ice time comes more production as Wagner now has five points in 14 games -- a pace that would put him well above his career high of 19 points if he continues producing.
