Matt Grzelcyk is the latest Boston Bruins player that COVID-19 has forced off the ice.

The Bruins announced Thursday in a statement they’ve placed the defenseman in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. Grzelcyk now will miss Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, with his absence forcing Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy to reconfigure his defensive pairings for the contest.

The news comes at a bad time, as Grzelcyk had been playing quite well for the surging Bruins.

He joins Connor Clifton and Derek Forbort among Bruins players in the COVID protocol.

In addition to Grzelcyk, the Bruins also placed one staff member in the COVID protocol Thursday.
