Patrice Bergeron will be sidelined for at least a game.
After Wednesday’s practice at Warrior Ice Arena, head coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters Bergeron’s injury is one “involving his head,” and the Bruins “have to be careful” with how they handle it. He won’t play Thursday night, but Cassidy did not give a timeline for Bergeron’s return to the ice.
“It’s involving his head, so we have to be careful,” Cassidy said. “This is a guy that’s had a head injury in the past, we want to make sure everything checks out, he wants to make sure everything checks out. In the immediate term here he did not skate (Wednesday),he won’t play (Thursday), and hopefully he’s in good shape the next few days. But we’re going to obviously take as much time as we need.”
The Bruins welcome the Carolina Hurricanes to TD Garden on Thursday night for a 7 p.m. ET puck drop.
