BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins will be without second-year defenseman Dougie Hamilton for a stretch as he recovers from what the team is calling a “mild concussion.”
Bruins head coach Claude Julien announced the injury on Tuesday, after Hamilton missed practice on Monday and Tuesday.
Julien said that the team does not expect Hamilton to miss too much time.
With Hamilton out, the Bruins still have six healthy D-men, though any further injuries would necessitate another emergency call-up from Providence. Already this season, Kevan Miller, David Warsofsky and Zach Trotman made their NHL debuts on the Bruins’ blue line.
The Bruins host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.
Hamilton, 20, has played in 33 games this season, scoring four goals and collecting six assists to go with a plus-9 rating.
