BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins have only been at training camp for a few days, but they have already had a scare on the injury front.
The good news is, it appears just to be a scare and nothing serious.
Defenseman Zdeno Chara had to leave Monday morning’s scrimmage early after taking a puck off his left leg, according to CBSBoston Bruins Writer Matt Kalman.
Luckily, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said it does not appear to be a serious injury.
“Right now it’s a contusion and we’ll evaluate it as we go along here,” Julien said after practice. “This is training camp and if he needs an extra day here we’ll give him an extra day. If not, he’ll be back on the ice tomorrow.”
