Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Skating with Lauzon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy has been joined by Jeremy Lauzon on the Bruins' top defense pairing in training camp, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.

With Zdeno Chara now in Washington, Lauzon has a chance to move up in the team's lineup and he could be a good fit alongside McAvoy, providing the blue-line pairing with a rugged presence. Given that offensive dynamo Torey Krug has also departed in free agency, McAvoy -- who logged five goals and 32 points in 67 games last season -- figures to see added opportunities in 2020-21, and if things click for the 2016 first-rounder when he's utilized in power-play situations, McAvoy's fantasy stock will continue to rise.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Recovered from surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Sept. 8, but he's already been cleared to resume normal offseason activities and will be fully available for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.

McAvoy had another rock-solid season in 2019-20, picking up five goals and 32 points while posting a plus-24 rating in 67 regular-season games before adding a goal and three helpers in 13 postseason contests. Torey Krug signed with the Blues in free agency, so McAvoy may be expected to take on an expanded role from an offensive standpoint in 2020-21, further bolstering his fantasy value.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Lights lamp in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy scored a goal on four shots to go along with two PIM, two hits and one block in Wednesday's 3-2 round-robin loss to Tampa Bay.

McAvoy, who led Boston defensemen in shots in this one, beat Andrei Vasilevskiy with a one-timer off a faceoff late in the second period to get the Bruins on the board. The 22-year-old first-rounder collected five goals and 32 points with a career-best plus-24 rating in 67 regular-season games in 2019-20.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Back at it
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (undisclosed) returned to practice Thursday. Conor Ryan of reports.

McAvoy missed Boston's last three practices with an undisclosed issue, but his presence on the ice Thursday suggests he should be fully fit when the Bruins travel to Toronto on Sunday. The 22-year-old blueliner, who notched five goals and 32 points while posting a plus-24 rating in 67 games during the regular season, is expected to skate on the B's top pairing and second power-play unit once postseason play gets underway.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Missing from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy was not on the ice for Monday's practice session, Conor Ryan of reports.

McAvoy racked up eight points in his last nine outings prior to the league going on hiatus, so his potential absence would no doubt be felt by the team and fantasy owners. If the blueliner is dealing with something serious, the club could rest him during the round-robin games, which give it some flexibility, though this could be as simple as a maintenance day.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Ties career high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy tallied 32 points (five goals, 27 assists) in 67 games prior to the suspension of play in mid-March.

Already in his third full NHL season at 22, McAvoy has tied his career-high 32 points set as a rookie. His sparkling plus-24 rating would also hold up as a personal best. Owners could point to McAvoy's five tallies on 101 shots (4.95 shooting percentage) as somewhat underwhelming, but the fact remains that there's a lot to like about a near-40-point rearguard that doesn't turn 23 until December. It'll be interesting to see if pending unrestricted free agent (and Bruins leading scorer among defensemen) Torey Krug re-ups with the team this summer, as his departure would undoubtedly impact McAvoy's numbers going forward.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Three-point performance Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Islanders.

The third-year blueliner put together his best scoring performance of the season, capping a February in which he racked up four goals and 13 points over 14 games. McAvoy is now up to 30 points (four goals, 26 helpers) on the year, leaving him two points shy of tying the career high he set as a rookie.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Bags helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy registered an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

McAvoy's been on a nice run in February, with three goals and five assists in the last 10 games. The 22-year-old blueliner has also reached the 25-point threshold for the third time in his young career. He's added 118 hits, 118 blocked shots, 89 shots on net and a plus-20 rating through 59 appearances this year.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Notches third goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy posted a goal, three blocked shots and a plus-1 rating across 24:52 in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Rangers.

It took McAvoy a whopping 52 games to score his first goal of the season, but now he's lit the lamp three times and added two helpers over the past six contests. The 22-year-old is finally hitting his stride, and he's worth a look as the fantasy playoffs approach.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Finally gets in goal column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy scored the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

McAvoy picked a great time to get his first goal of the campaign, beating Robin Lehner 1:19 into overtime to win the game. It's the defenseman's 20th point of the year. He's added 76 shots on goal, 111 hits, 104 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating through 52 contests.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Grabs two helpers Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy recorded two assists in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Canucks.

It's the third-year blueliner's first multi-point performance since Nov. 16. McAvoy has 19 points through 51 games, but he has yet to find the back of the net after scoring 14 goals over the last two seasons. It's not from lack of trying, though -- he fired two shots Tuesday, and his 74 shots is right in line with his totals in that category during his first two NHL campaigns. Don't be surprised if McAvoy's puck luck turns down the stretch.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Good to go against Winnipeg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (head) will be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Jets,'s Darrin Bauming reports.

McAvoy was being monitored for a possible head injury following the Bruins' 3-2 victory over Vegas on Jan. 21, but it's not surprising to see that he's ready to rock following the All-Star break. The 22-year-old will slot into his usual role skating on Boston's top pairing and second power-play unit against Winnipeg.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Possible injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy hit his head on the boards in Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

McAvoy skated 20:49 in Tuesday's game, so he took a regular shift. The team will be cautious with the 22-year-old. Expect an update on his condition ahead of the Bruins' first game after the bye week -- Jan. 31 versus the Jets -- but for now it seems this is just a proactive approach from the team.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Continues picking up assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy collected his 17th helper of the season in a 4-1 win over the Penguins on Thursday.

Despite still being without a goal, McAvoy has been a steady contributor to the offense in recent weeks. He has picked up 10 assists through his last 19 games, making him fourth on the team in helpers since Dec. 1.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Dishes helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy picked up an assist on the first goal of the game in a 6-2 win over the Predators on Tuesday.

With 14 assists on the season, McAvoy is on pace to match last season's point total of 28 even though he has yet to score a goal. Among all skaters in the league without a goal, McAvoy leads with 56 shots on goal. He has back-to-back seven-goal seasons, but with decreased power-play time he has gotten fewer quality chances to put one in the back of the net.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Good to go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (lower body) is back in action for Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets, Matt Porter of the Boston Globe reports.

McAvoy was considered a game-time call for the tilt but will ultimately make his return after three games on the sidelines. Despite being a regular on the power play, McAvoy has just 13 points (all assists) through 38 games. That does at least point to some potential upside in the future.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Game-time call Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (lower body) is labeled a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the Blue Jackets.

McAvoy's return could be a shot in the arm for a Bruins squad aiming to bounce back from a shootout loss to the Devils on Tuesday. Although he's not a fantasy juggernaut, McAvoy has posted a solid first half of the season for Boston, notching 13 assists and a plus-13 rating through 38 games played.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Monday.

McAvoy's placement on injured reserve effectively rules him out versus New Jersey on Tuesday, though he could be activated at any point since his injury occurred prior to the Christmas break. Brandon Carlo figures to continue holding down the top pairing alongside Zdeno Chara with McAvoy sidelined.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy (undisclosed) will not dress for Sunday's game against Buffalo, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy was optimistic that McAvoy avoided injury after a hit from Capitals forward T.J. Oshie on Dec. 23, but he's now missed two games since the incident. His next chance to play will be Tuesday in New Jersey but there's currently no set timetable for his return.

Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McAvoy didn't travel with the team for Friday's matchup with Buffalo, Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports.

McAvoy was expected to be fine after taking a big hit from Washington's T.J. Oshie on Monday, but he'll end up missing time due to an undisclosed injury. The blueliner's absence will force the recently recalled Steve Kampfer into the lineup, while Brandon Carlo should see the biggest uptick in ice time. Until the team provides a more specific update, McAvoy should be considered day-to-day.
