Matt Grzelcyk Injury: Bruins Defenseman Exits Game 2 After Ugly Hit


BOSTON — The Boston Bruins are down a defenseman.

Matt Grzelcyk left Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues after taking a scary hit from Oskar Sundqvist in the corner boards late in the first period.

Grzelcyk went to play a puck on the boards, and Sundqvist drove a check into the defenseman’s head.

The defenseman remained down on the ice for a bit while medical personnel tended to him. He eventually skated off with help from a medical staff member.

He did not return to the ice for the start of the second period.

Grzelcyk had seven points in 18 games for the Bruins this postseason.
