Goalie Tuukka Rask recently suffered a groin injury while playing in Europe, and now forward Patrice Bergeron is the latest to be bitten by the injury bug overseas.
NESN's Naoko Funayama reports that Bergeron has an upper-body injury, and he is day-to-day.
Patrice Bergeron (HC Lugano) has upperbody injury. Day-to-day. Missed last game but practiced today. Questionable for tomorrow's game.

It's not expected to be serious, though, as a team source tells Funayama that the injury sounds minor and he could be back as soon as Friday. The game in question Friday also happens to be against HC Davos, which features NHL stars Rick Nash and Joe Thornton.
Bergeron is currently playing with Lugano HC in Switzerland. The 2012 Selke award winner has six goals and five assists in just five games, totaling a plus-13 rating as well.
