Bruins Chris Kelly Out Against Islanders

BOSTON (CBS) – The Bruins will be without their newest player Thursday night when they take on the New York Islanders.

Center Chris Kelly was unable to get immigration approval, and will have to wait another day to join his new team.

“At this time we have not received the proper immigration approval necessary for Chris to play in tonight’s game against the New York Islanders,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a release on the team’s website.

“Chris will meet the team in Ottawa tomorrow and will be available to play in tomorrow’s game against the Senators,” the statement read.

Kelly was acquired from Ottawa for a second-round draft pick after Tuesday night’s 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs
