New Boston Bruins forward Brett Connolly might have to wait a while before he can show his new team what he brings to the table.
Connolly left practice early Wednesday after taking a Dennis Seidenberg shot to his right hand. It was just Connolly’s second practice with the team after being acquired Monday morning from the Tampa Bay Lightning for two second-round draft picks.
Bruins coach Claude Julien offered little update on Connolly after practice, although Julien did say Connolly will see the team’s doctor.

Max Talbot, acquired by the Bruins from the Colorado Avalanche before the NHL trade deadline, practiced with the team for the first time Wednesday. He wore a fourth-line maroon jersey, but it’s unclear how the Bruins will use the new forwards, especially with Connolly’s status now up in the air.
