It was not a happy homecoming for Ondrej Kase on Monday night.
The Bruins forward made his return to game action for the first time since Jan. 16 in Boston’s 3-2 win against the New York Islanders, but only played just 6:49.
Kase did not return for the third period due to an upper-body injury. After the game, head coach Bruce Cassidy provided a vague update.
“Upper-body, he left he couldn’t finish the game,” Cassidy said. “That’s never a good sign. We’ll obviously have a better feel in the morning. I don’t believe he’ll play (Tuesday) (or) travel with us. I haven’t been in the medical room. … I’ll know more tomorrow.”
Kase dealt with an upper-body injury that caused him to miss over 50 games. He expected himself to be 100% ready for the Stanley Cup playoffs, and now that seems to be up in the air in what continues to be a tough season for him.
