Bruins’ DeBrusk not traveling with team after fracturing fibula

0

After scoring two goals to become the hero of the Winter Classic, Jake DeBrusk is in danger of missing a serious call.

The Boston Bruins forward was seen in a walking boot after the game, and Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff reports that DeBrusk has a fractured fibula.

Head coach Jim Montgomery confirmed to reporters including Matt Porter of the Boston Globe that DeBrusk is not on the trip, but will give a more detailed update on Thursday. Chris Wagner should be recalled in his place.

If the injury was sustained on an early blocked shot, as many speculate, that means DeBrusk scored both the tying goal and the winning goal at Fenway Park on a broken leg.

The 26-year-old has completely rejuvenated this season with 16 goals and 30 points in 36 games, after a tough few years with the Bruins.

A trade request, plenty of rumors and a season where he scored just five goals, he’s once again looking like the powerful and talented forward Boston hoped for with the 14th overall pick in 2015.

His removal from the roster is a blow to the Bruins, especially given how rigorously they adhere to the salary cap.

If he has to miss more than ten games, they could move him to long-term injured reserve to get a little more flexibility.

But that doesn’t really allow them to acquire a replacement unless he misses the rest of the season. Instead, the team will need to be a bit more creative in how they sort out the roster and replace DeBrusk’s offense.
