Bruins’ Jake DeBrusk To Miss Next Two Games
The Bruins have added another player to an already crowded injury list, Jake DeBrusk, who is feeling ill after he was hit in the head by a puck back on Nov. 26 against Toronto.
Coach Bruce Cassidy said DeBrusk is suffering from symptoms often related to a concussion.
"Came in yesterday and was not feeling well, and was not feeling great during the Tampa game," Cassidy said. "So right now, can only speculate. We know he got hit in the back of the head with the puck in Toronto, but played, so right now we are waiting for him to come and let us know where he’s at."
DeBrusk, who has scored 10 times in 28 games for the Bruins this season, will miss Saturday night's game at TD Garden against the Maple Leafs and Sunday’s matchup with the Senators in Ottawa.
In that same contest with the Maple Leafs last month, Kevan Miller suffered a cartilage injury to his larynx when a puck rode up his stick and struck his throat. The Bruins said they would reevaluate the veteran defenseman in five weeks.
Boston's roster has been decimated by injuries. Team captain Zdeno Chara (MCL) and Patrice Bergeron (ribs/collarbone) will both miss and extended amount of time, likely through December.
