BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins have lost yet another defenseman to injury.
David Warsofsky can now join the list of walking wounded on the Bruins’ blue line, and it doesn’t sound good for the 24-year-old.
Warsofsky did not practice with the team Friday morning and is now sidelined with an undisclosed injury. Boston head coach Claude Julien told reporters he doesn’t expect to see the defenseman anytime soon.
“I have no idea. I’m not a doctor,” Julien said of Warsofsky’s timetable. “I know he’s out for a while. I don’t know how long.”
Warsofsky now joins Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Kevan Miller on an ever-growing list of injured Boston defensemen.
But there was some good news for the Bruins on Friday, as Krug practiced with the team for the first time since taking a slash to his pinky back on October 29.
“It’s great to be back on the ice with my teammates and competing and everything like that,” he said. “I’m happy with where it is now and the progress we’ve made over the last few days.”
Krug said he was taking “baby steps” on the ice on Friday, but hopes to be back in game action soon.
“Gripping the stick can definitely create some challenges, but it’s feeling good,” said Krug, who was expected to miss 2-4 weeks when the injury occured. “I’m comfortable with everything now, and as long as it keeps progressing I’ll be happy with it.”
Miller was also on the ice prior to Friday’s practice, and is progressing towards a return.
