Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Figures in on tying, winning goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk dished out two assists and had three shots Monday in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Capitals in Game 2.

Grzelcyk drew the secondary helper on Taylor Hall's game-tying goal late in regulation, then he set up Brad Marchand with a perfect cross-ice feed for the overtime winner 39 seconds into the extra session. Two games into the series, Grzelcyk has already surpassed his 2019-20 playoff production of one assist in 12 contests.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Finding another gear offensively
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk assisted on goals by Patrice Bergeron (PP) and Taylor Hall to help the Bruins take a 2-1 leading into the second intermission. The 27-year-old Grzelcyk went without a point in four straight games to close out the month of April, but he's off to a good start in May with three points and a plus-3 rating through three appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk scored a goal on two shots Monday in a 3-0 victory over New Jersey.

The 27-year-old defenseman closed out the scoring in this one, sending a long shot from the point that banked off a New Jersey defender to make it 3-0 with 2:43 left in the third. Grzelcyk has been hampered by injuries through the season, but he's still managed to contribute 17 points in 33 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk registered a goal and an assist with two hits in Thursday's 5-1 win over Buffalo.

The defenseman scored the eventual game-winner when he handcuffed Buffalo netminder Dustin Tokarski with a point shot 12:50 into the second period, giving the Bruins a 2-1 lead. He also picked up an assist on David Pastrnak's goal early in the third. The points were the first in six contests for Grzelcyk, who has produced 15 points in 27 games overall despite being plagued by injuries throughout the year.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Back in the lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) will be back in the lineup Tuesday night against the Sabres, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.

In his return to action, Grzelcyk is set to work alongside Charlie McAvoy on the Bruins' top defensive pairing. Additionally, the puck-moving backliner should see power-play duty for the team, which has won four straight games since the NHL trade deadline.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Could play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) is a candidate to return to action Tuesday night against the Sabres, according to coach Bruce Cassidy.

Grzelcyk, who last suited up April 10, has been in and out of the lineup this season, but when available the 27-year-old has been effective in the transition game, while also logging power-play time. In 25 games to date, the mobile puck mover has logged three goals and 13 points to go along with a plus-4 rating.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) isn't expected to play Sunday against Washington, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

Grzelcyk will miss a fifth straight game Sunday, but he's been skating on his own of late, so he could be ready to return sooner rather than later. In the meantime, new addition Mike Reilly should continue to see top-four minutes as well as ample usage on Boston's top power-play unit.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Not ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) won't play Friday night against the Islanders.

On the plus side, Grzelcyk has resumed skating, but it's unclear when the mobile blueliner will be able to return to the Bruins' lineup. In Grzelcyk's absence, newcomer Mike Reilly should continue to log plenty of ice time, including point duty on the team's power play.

April 16, 2021 01:52 AM
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) remains sidelined heading into Thursday's game against the Islanders.

At this stage, there's no timetable for a return to action for Grzelcyk, who was forced out of last Saturday's game against the Flyers. In his absence, look for fellow blueliners Charlie McAvoy and newly-acquired Mike Reilly to log added power-play time.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) won't play Tuesday night against the Sabres, Joe Haggerty of BostonHockeyNow.com reports.

Grzelcyk, who was forced out of Saturday's game against the Flyers, thus remains in the day-to-day category as Thursday night's contest against the Islanders approaches.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (upper body) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Capitals, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Grzelcyk left Saturday's game against the Flyers after just 7:21. Charlie McAvoy (upper body) is still out and Kevin Miller will also come out of the lineup Sunday, meaning both Jack Ahcan and Jarred Tinordi will suit up. Grzelcyk's next chance to play is Tuesday versus the Sabres.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Suffers injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk left Saturday's game against the Flyers with an upper-body injury and will not return.

Grzelcyk posted a plus-1 rating in 7:21 of ice time Saturday before exiting the contest. Until another update is available, the 27-year-old will be questionable for Sunday's game against the Capitals. He has 13 points through 25 games this season.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Collects first goal of 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk scored a power-play goal and led all players with eight shots in a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday. He also dished out a pair of hits.

Grzelcyk feathered a point shot through traffic to open the scoring just under seven minutes into the game. It was the first goal of the year for Grzelcyk, who had his season interrupted by a lower-body injury in February. Grzelcyk will see heavy minutes going forward, including power-play time, and fantasy managers should give the 27-year-old a look if he's sitting on the waiver wire. He was certainly active Monday, setting a single-game personal high for shots on goal.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and will play in Wednesday's game versus the Capitals, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

Grzelcyk will crack the lineup for the first time since Feb. 10. The 27-year-old should fulfill power-play duties, and he'll partner with Brandon Carlo on the second pairing. Grzelcyk posted three points and 13 shots on net through six games before this injury.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: On track for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) is expected to play Wednesday night against the Capitals, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

Assuming no setbacks in warmups, Grzelcyk is slated to work on the Bruins' second defensive pairing along with Brandon Carlo in his anticipated return to action Wednesday. Additionally, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe indicates that Grzelcyk is on track to see point duty on the team's top power-play unit.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Practices Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) practiced Tuesday.

It appears as though Grzelcyk -- who's been in and out of the lineup this season -- is trending toward being activated off IR in advance of Wednesday night's game against the Capitals. If that's the case, he'd be in line work on the Bruins' second defensive pairing along with Brandon Carlo, in addition to seeing power-play duty.

Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Out Sunday, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Rangers, per the NHL's official media site.

Grzelcyk will stay on injured reserve for now, but he's trending in the right direction for Wednesday's home game versus the Capitals. The 27-year-old has played just six games this year, contributing three assists and 13 shots on net while handling consistent power-play minutes.

February 27, 2021 04:44 PM
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Rangers, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

The Bruins will re-evaluate Grzelcyk on Sunday. They're expected to let him rest another game with hopes that he can be at 100 percent for Wednesday's matchup versus the Rangers. If he, indeed, sits out, expect John Moore to stay in the lineup Sunday.

February 26, 2021 12:04 PM
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Could return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grzelcyk (lower body) won't play Friday night against the Rangers, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

On the plus side from the Bruins' perspective, Grzelcyk could return to action as soon as Sunday's road rematch against the Rangers. His potential return would be a welcome one, with the team's defensive corps also dealing with injuries to Kevan Miller (knee) and Jeremy Lauzon (hand).
