Zboril (upper body) isn't in the projected lineup for Monday's Game 2 against Washington, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Zboril will be joined in the press box by Jeremy Lauzon (hand) while Connor Clifton will work on the third pairing. The Czech blueliner's next chance to play will come in Wednesday's Game 3.
Zboril (upper body) isn't in the lineup for Saturday's Game 1 against Washington, Amalie Benjamin of NHL.com reports.
Zboril played in 44 of Boston's 56 regular-season games but picked up an injury in the season finale and won't be ready to return for the postseason opener. His next chance to re-join the lineup will come in Monday's Game 2.
Zboril (upper body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Capitals.
Zboril featured in a top-pairing role with many of the Bruins' top players rested for the regular-season finale. He logged only 5:39 of ice time before he was forced from the contest. Zboril's status ahead of Saturday's Game 1 versus the Capitals could be in question.
Zboril (illness) will return to action Tuesday night against the Sabres, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.
Following a one-game absence, Zboril is slated to work on the Bruins' third defensive pairing along with Jeremy Lauzon. With newcomer Mike Reilly now in the mix and Matt Grzelcyk back in action, it doesn't seem likely that Zboril, who has notched eight assists in 39 games to date, will see much power-play time in the immediate future.
Zboril (illness) should be available Tuesday night against the Sabres, according to coach Bruce Cassidy.
If so, Zboril's non-COVID-19 related illness will have cost him just one game. The 24-year-old has notched eight assists and 16 PIM in 39 games in his first season as an NHL regular. At some point down the road, however, he could end up squeezed out of the Bruins' lineup, but such a scenario would hinge on all of the team's top blueliners being healthy and available at the same time.
Zboril (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Capitals, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
The illness is believed to be non-COVID-19 related, but Zboril is still not feeling well enough to suit up. Zboril will be a tough loss to the lineup, as he's produced eight assists, 61 hits and 30 blocks across 17:26 of average ice time in 39 games this campaign. The 24-year-old's next chance to suit up is Tuesday against Buffalo, as Jarred Tinordi is expected to replace him in the lineup Sunday.
Zboril recorded an assist, two shots on net, four PIM, two hits and a pair of blocked shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Capitals.
Zboril has picked up four helpers in his last 11 outings. The 24-year-old defenseman remains limited to a third-pairing role. He's earned eight assists, 29 shots on net, 56 hits and a minus-3 rating through 35 appearances in 2020-21.
Zboril (upper body) will come off injured reserve and suit up Thursday night against the Islanders.
In his return to action, Zboril, who has missed two straight games, is slated to work on the Bruins' second defensive pairing along with Brandon Carlo. The 2015 first-rounder's fantasy impact has been modest thus far, with Zboril having recorded two assists and four PIM in 14 games.
Zboril (upper body) shed his non-contact jersey at Wednesday's practice, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
With Matt Grzelcyk still dealing with a lower-body injury and Jeremy Lauzon (hand) set to miss time, Zboril's looming activation from IR arrives at a good time for the Bruins. Based on Wednesday's practice, look for Zboril to work on the team's second defensive pairing along with Brandon Carlo when Boston faces the Islanders on Thursday night.
Zboril (upper body) practiced Tuesday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Per Matt Porter of The Boston Globe, Zboril -- who sported a non-contact jersey Tuesday -- could practice fully as soon as Wednesday. If so, the 24-year-old blueliner, who has two helpers in 14 games to date, could potentially be activated off IR prior to Thursday's game against the Islanders.
Zboril (upper body) was placed on the injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 13, PuckPedia reports.
This is mostly a paper move as Zboril will still be eligible to return to the active roster once he's fit to play. The 24-year-old defenseman has two assists in 14 games with the Bruins this season. He could return Thursday against the Islanders.
Zboril (upper body) won't travel with the Bruins to Lake Tahoe for Sunday's game against the Flyers, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
With both Zboril and Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) sidelined through the weekend, Connor Clifton and John Moore are slated to fill in on the Bruins' blue line, with Steven Kampfer and Urho Vaakanainen on hand in reserve.
Zboril (upper body) won't play Thursday night against New Jersey, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
With Zboril, who has logged two assists in 14 games to date, set to be sidelined Thursday, Connor Clifton is on track to work alongside Kevan Miller on the Bruins' third defensive pairing. Zboril slots into the day-to-day category as Sunday afternoon's contest against the Flyers approaches.
Zboril (upper body) isn't expected to play Thursday against New Jersey, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
With fellow blueliner Matt Grzelcyk (lower body) also injured, Connor Clifton, John Moore and Steven Kampfer are candidates to fill in on Boston's blue line Thursday night.
Zboril (upper body) didn't practice Monday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Zboril is not expected to skate Tuesday either. The same applies to fellow blueliner Matt Grzelcyk and if both are out Thursday against New Jersey, then John Moore and Connor Clifton would be candidates to slot into Boston's lineup.
Zboril (upper body) will not return to Saturday's game versus the Islanders.
Zboril played 5:48 during the opening frame, but his absence leaves the Bruins at five defensemen for the remainder of the game. More information on his status could surface after the game. The 23-year-old defenseman should be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's game versus the Devils.
Zboril notched an assist in Monday's 5-3 win over the Capitals.
Zboril's helper arrived via a nice feed to David Pastrnak, whose second goal of the game brought the score to 3-2, Washington. Nine games into the season, Zboril has logged two assists and a plus-1 rating, while establishing himself as an NHL regular. The 2015 first-rounder is off the radar in most fantasy formats, but Zboril does have the skating ability and skills to join the offense when opportunities to do so arise, something the Bruins coaching staff has encouraged the team's young blueliners to do this season.
Zboril has been seeing work with Kevan Miller on the Bruins' third defensive pairing, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.
With Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug no longer in the in mix, there's an opportunity for Zboril to secure regular NHL duty for the first time since being a first-round draft pick in 2015. The 6-foot, 200-pounder logged three goals and 19 points in 58 games for AHL Providence last season. While his numbers didn't stand out, Providence coach Jay Leach indicated that Zboril was his best defenseman down the stretch last year. In his projected role with the Bruins, Zboril isn't on the fantasy radar, but he does have a modest degree of upside on offense, with Miller noting that the 23-year-old "sees the ice really well. He skates really well, he makes good plays."
Zboril agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.45 million contract with Boston on Wednesday.
Zboril played in just two contests for the Bruins this season, registering one shot and three hits while averaging 10:56 of ice time. The blueliner -- who is currently playing overseas on loan with HC Kometa Brno (Czech Republic) -- should get every opportunity to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night.
The Bruins have loaned Zboril to HC Kometa Brno of the Czech Extraliga, freelance hockey writer Mark Divver reports.
Zboril spent the entirety of the 2019-20 season with AHL providence, picking up 19 points while posting a plus-20 rating in 58 games. The 2015 first-round pick will almost certainly be recalled by the Bruins for training camp ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
