Bruins release negative update on Matt Grzelcyk

The Bruins are rolling, but he won't be a part of it for the time being.



The good new for the Boston Bruins is that they have laughed in the face of their doubters who expected them to take a significant step backwards this season, especially after the losses of Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Tyler Bertuzzi, Dmitri Orlov, Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno from their roster over the summer.

Right now, they've yet to suffer a regulation loss through the first nine games of the year (8-0-1), picking up right where they left off last regular season. However, they're not fully healthy.

Defenseman Matt Grzelcyk, who has scored one goal in the nine games he's played in this season, exited Monday night's victory over the Florida Panthers at TD Garden with what was described as an "upper body" injury, and head coach Jim Montgomery confirmed the unfortunate news that he'd be missing at least the next few weeks as he recovers. 

The Bruins are out of action until Thursday evening when they bring in their Original 6 and division rival Toronto Maple Leafs for a home date at TD Garden.
