Monday was a new day, which means there was new injury developments for the Bruins.
The black and gold walking wounded have had to deal with an ever-growing list of injuries, and the B’s revealed some bad news Monday morning. Head coach Claude Julien announced that fourth-line winger Daniel Paille is dealing with concussion symptoms. Paille hasn’t played since Dec. 8 and has been out since with what the team has called an upper-body injury.
Paille returned to Boston following that Dec. 8 game in Toronto and didn’t join the team at all during its Western Canada swing that ended Saturday night in Vancouver. It’s unclear when exactly Paille was injured and there obviously isn’t any sort of timetable for Paille’s eventual return.
Julien also said Monday that winger Loui Eriksson hasn’t even made a trip to the rink after suffering another concussion on a hit from Brooks Orpik on Dec. 7. Eriksson has already suffered two concussions this season.
Per Julien, Paille has been out with concussion symptoms ^CS—
