After the announcement this afternoon that Boston Bruins star netminder Tuukka Rask would miss action tonight against the Vancouver Canucks, it was just reported that the injury suffered was a concussion.
The injury happened in practice, when rookie Anders Bjork collided with Rask.
There is no timetable for his return.
Anton Khudobin will start tonight - with Zane McIntyre backing him up. McIntyre was recalled from the team's AHL affiliate in Providence.
Rask only has 1 win in 4 games played thus far, but it cannot be debated that depth between the pipes is thin beyond him. His 37-20-5 record in 2016-17 propelled the Bruins into the playoffs. They'll be counting on his steady play when he returns to help get them back to the big show.
