Bruins' John Moore: Returning Wednesday
Moore, who recently underwent what coach Bruce Cassidy described as a "small procedure" for a lower-body injury, is slated to return to practice Wednesday, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.
Per the report, the issue addressed by the minor procedure dates back to training camp. Once Moore returns to the mix, he'll continue to serve as a spare blueliner for the Bruins. The 30-year-old has yet to make his season debut for the team.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Callum Booth: Joins taxi squad
Booth has been added to the Bruins' taxi squad, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.
Booth provides Boston with goaltending depth behind Tuukka Rask and Jaroslav Halak, while Daniel Vladar and Jeremy Swayman are currently slated to tend the twine for the AHL's Providence Bruins, whose training camp opened up Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Steve Kampfer: Returns to ice
Kampfer, who had been away from the Bruins due to a personal matter, was on the ice for the opening of AHL Providence's training camp, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.
Kampfer, who logged two assists in 10 games with Boston last season, gives the Bruins organization a reliable and experienced blue line depth option to call upon this season. Considering the unique context surrounding the current campaign, a call-up seems likely at some point for the 32-year-old, who has 211 NHL games under his belt to date.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Game-time decision
Grzelcyk (leg) is a game-time decision for Tuesday night's game against the Penguins, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Grzelcyk is slated to participate in warmups Tuesday night to see if he's ready to play. If he ends up being held out, however, Connor Clifton would remain in the Bruins' lineup. In four games out of the gate this season, Grzelcyk has logged two assists, one of which was a power-play helper.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' David Pastrnak: Saturday return possible
Pastrnak (hip) could return to action as soon as Saturday's game against the Capitals, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
Pastrnak, who shed his red (non-contact) jersey at Monday's practice, won't return to action in Boston's upcoming back-to-back contests versus the Penguins, but barring a setback he could potentially return to action versus Washington on Saturday. Coach Bruce Cassidy has confirmed that when Pastrnak rejoins the lineup, he'll skate on the team's top line along with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Not at practice Monday
Grzelcyk (leg) didn't practice Monday, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
Coach Bruce Cassidy has indicated that Grzelcyk -- who missed Saturday's win over the Flyers -- is considered day-to-day, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports. If Grzelcyk remains sidelined Tuesday against the Penguins, look for Connor Clifton to continue to fill in on the team's second defensive pairing, alongside Brandon Carlo.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' David Pastrnak: Sheds non-contact jersey
Pastrnak (hip) shed his red (non-contact) jersey at Monday's practice, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
With Pastrnak now evidently able to log full-contact work at practice, the Bruins' top right winger continues to inch toward a return to game action. At the very least, Pastrnak appears to be ahead of his initial mid-February estimated return date, though we'd still be surprised if he was back in the team's lineup before the end of January....

Bruins' Craig Smith: Two points Saturday
Smith notched a goal and an assist in 15:00 worth of ice time in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Flyers, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.
Smith, who now has three points in his last two games, meshed well Saturday with Trent Frederic and Charlie Coyle on the Bruins' third line, a trio that could stay intact if its chemistry continues to build. Smith is also seeing second-unit power play duty these days, which adds to an overall context that gives the offseason free agent acquisition an opportunity to provide the team with valuable secondary scoring.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Trent Frederic: Moves up lineup
Frederic has been moved up to the Bruins' third line, alongside Charlie Coyle and Craig Smith, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.
It's an assignment that Frederic could hold on to for the time being, after the 2016 first-rounder displayed good chemistry with Coyle and Smith in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Flyers. In the process, the 22-year-old, who had been playing well on the Bruins' fourth line, logged his first point of the season (off a nice pass that resulted in a Coyle tip-in tally) in 14:31 worth of ice time. Though Frederic isn't likely to pile up scoring stats, the 6-foot-2, 203-pounder's combination of solid skills and physicality could help him cement his current top-9 role.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Charlie Coyle: Collects two points in big win
Coyle fashioned a goal and an assist Saturday in a 6-1 rout over the Flyers.
Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy has thrust Coyle into a prominent role, with the American pivot averaging a career high in ice time (17:54) through five contests. While Coyle has yet to convert on the man advantage, he's a fixture on the No. 2 power-play unit, so we'd expect him to make some noise in that department soon enough.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Brad Marchand: Domination continues
Marchand had two goals and an assist in a 6-1 victory over Philadephia on Saturday.
One goal and the helper came with the man advantage. Marchand has seven points, including four on the power play, in five games this season. And the production is coming without the benefit of stud linemate David Pastrnak. We can't wait to see what Marchand can do with a dose of pasta in his life.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Patrice Bergeron: Sets yet another team record
Bergeron had two goals and an assist in a 6-1 win over the Flyers on Saturday. Both goals came on the power play.
Bergeron's big night made him the 11th player in Bruins history to net at least three points in at least 50 games. At 35, the decline will come soon, but so far, so good. Bergeron has six points (three goals, three assists) in five games, and that's without David Pastrnak on his wing. He's money in the bank for fantasy purposes.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Jaroslav Halak: Light duty win
Halak made 16 saves in a 6-1 win over Philadelphia on Saturday.
Halak wasn't especially challenged Saturday, but he remained focused throughout. He remains one of the best 1B goalies in the NHL and should be a fantasy mainstay in your blue paint whenever he's listed as the starter.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' John Moore: Deemed day-to-day
Moore is considered day-to-day with a lower-body issue, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Moore has been a healthy scratch for Boston's first four games of the campaign, so this news won't affect any fantasy lineups. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status should surface once he's deemed fit to play.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Unavailable against Philadelphia
Grzelcyk (leg) won't play Saturday against the Flyers, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Grzelcyk is considered day-to-day with his leg issue, so he could return as soon as Tuesday against the Penguins. With Grzelcyk sidelined, Connor Clifton will enter the lineup against Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Expected to play
Grzelcyk (leg) is expected to play in Saturday's game versus the Flyers, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports.
Grzelcyk didn't play in Thursday's overtime game against Philadelphia due to a leg injury, but he was able to practice Friday, and he should slot into his usual spots on the Bruins' second pairing and top power-play unit for Saturday's rematch. The 27-year-old blueliner has picked up two assists while firing 13 shots on goal through the first four games of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Charlie Coyle: Notches first goal of season
Coyle scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flyers.
It wasn't until 57 seconds into the third period of the team's fourth game of the season that the Bruins scored their first 5-on-5 goal, which was notched by Jack Studnicka. Just over a minute later, Coyle's tally tied the score at 2-2. With Coyle, who centered the Bruins' third line Thursday (along with Anders Bjork and Craig Smith) now on the board and the team's even-strength woes hopefully a thing of the past, look for the 28-year-old's scoring pace to pick up some. The fact that Coyle's been skating on Boston's second power-play unit of late should help in that regard.... See More ... See Less
