Boychuk caught a slash across the left arm early in the game against the New York Rangers on Saturday night, and what he initially thought was just a minor injury, turned into something worse.
"I thought I just had a bruise or something like that on my wrist," Boychuk told reporters. "But we got X-rays and saw that there was something not right there."
Julien has high hopes for a speedy return on Boychuk's part, but in the meantime defenseman Adam McQuaid gets the call up from Providence to fill in. A three-year veteran in the Bruins' organization, McQuaid played 19 games with Boston last season, scoring one goal and registering 21 penalty minutes.
