Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Shifts to LTIR
Poitras (shoulder) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday.
Poitras underwent shoulder surgery Feb. 7 and is done for the year, so this move shouldn't come as a surprise. Poitras, who should be a regular in the Bruins' lineup in 2024-25, finished the 2023-24 campaign with five goals and 15 points through 33 games as a rookie.... See More ... See Less

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Done for season
Poitras underwent surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the season.
Poitras' expected recovery timeline is five months, so he should be able to participate in a fairly regular offseason training regimen. The 19-year-old will end his rookie season with 15 points, 40 shots on net and a plus-4 rating over 33 appearances. Poitras should be ready for 2024-25 if he avoids setbacks in his recovery, though it's possible he could proceed slowly during training camp. He could be placed on injured reserve in the coming days to free up a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Still sidelined Tuesday
Poitras (undisclosed) will not be in action versus the Flames on Tuesday, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
Poitras has struggled to stay healthy since returning from the World Junior Championship, playing in just six of the Bruins' last 12 contests. Even when healthy, the 19-year-old center has been struggling to produce, as he is mired in both a five-game pointless streak and a 12-game goal drought. As such, Poitras could find himself watching from the press box periodically once cleared in order to hopefully rediscover his offensive upside.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Unavailable Saturday

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Returning Saturday
Poitras (shoulder) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against Montreal, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Doubtful Saturday
Per Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald, Poitras (shoulder) is unlikely to play Saturday versus Montreal, according to coach Jim Montgomery.
Poitras has already missed four games and Montgomery said Friday that he has 'a couple of boxes to check' before returning to the lineup. Poitras has been practicing and it appears that he could return as early as Monday in Winnipeg. Poitras has seen lots of action on the top two lines, but he has settled into a bottom-six center of late.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Won't play Thursday
Poitras (shoulder) isn't available for Thursday's game against Colorado, per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.
It will be Boston's fourth straight contest without Poitras. He has five goals and 15 points in 30 appearances this season. When healthy, Poitras will likely serve in a bottom-six capacity.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Game-time call Thursday
Poitras (shoulder) will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's clash with Colorado.
Poitras looks poised to return from a three-game absence due to his shoulder injury, though he hasn't been officially cleared to play. The Ontario native remains mired in a nine-game goal drought during which he's recorded a mere six shots. The 19-year-old center did chip in five helpers over that stretch, continuing to produce even when the goals aren't coming. If Poitras plays against the Avs, it would likely mean a return to the press box for Oskar Steen.... See More ... See Less

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Ruled out Thursday
Poitras (shoulder) won't play against Vegas on Thursday but remains day-to-day and is still traveling with the team, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Poitras has recorded two assists in three games since returning from the World Junior Championship but has yet to put a shot on net. In fact, the youngster hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 27 against Columbus. Without Poitras unavailable, Pavel Zacha and Charlie Coyle will feature as the first and second-line centers, respectively.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Can't finish contest
Poitras suffered an apparent shoulder injury in Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe reports.

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Back with Boston
Poitras returned to the Bruins on Thursday after playing for Team Canada at the 2024 World Junior Championship, Eric Russo of NHL.com reports.
Poitras had two goals and a pair of assists in five games as Canada was eliminated in the quarter-finals by Czechia 3-2. Poitras will sit out Thursday against Pittsburgh as he adjusts to the time change -- the tournament was held in Sweden. Poitras has played well for the Bruins this season, scoring five goals and adding eight assists in 27 games. The Bruins still have the option to return Poitras to OHL Guelph as he is still 19-years-old, but Poitras has played very well at the NHL level and it may be difficult to send him back to junior....

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Scores fifth goal of season
Poitras scored a goal in Monday's 5-2 road loss against the Blue Jackets.
Poitras ended up with a plus-1 rating while scoring on his only shot, and he won six of his 11 faceoff opportunities in 16:22 of ice time across 21 shifts. The 19-year-old pivot snapped a nine-game goal drought that dated back to a two-point performance Nov. 4 in Detroit. He'll look to carry the momentum into Thursday's home game against San Jose....

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Two points in losing effort
Poitras scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Red Wings.
The 19-year-old scored a slick goal midway through the first period by deking Ville Husso out of his shorts and tucking the puck into the net on his backhand. Poitras also helped set up David Pastrnak for Boston's final tally in the third. The 2022 second-round pick has four goals and seven points in 11 games for a very impressive start to his NHL career, and Poitras is slowly working his way into a more prominent role, both at 5-on-5 and on the man advantage....

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Staying in NHL
Poitras isn't expected to be sent back to juniors this season and will remain with the Bruins after head coach Jim Montgomery said the 19-year-old center will be "sticking around" in Boston, Conor Ryan of The Boston Globe reports.
Poitras has hit the nine-game mark which represents the decision point as to whether or not to burn a year of his entry-level contract. According to Montgomery, Poitras has earned his place on the 23-man roster, no doubt in part due to his three goals and two assists to open the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Adds another goal
Poitras scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Blackhawks.
Poitras tallied his third goal in his last two games Tuesday, beating Petr Mrazek on a breakaway to extend Boston's lead to 2-0 in the second period. It's been an impressive run for the 19-year-old rookie, who now has four points (three goals and an assist) through his first six NHL games. Poitras, a second-round pick in 2022, offers some intriguing upside going forward as he looks to have developed some chemistry with Morgan Geekie and Jake DeBrusk on Boston's second line....

Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Scores first two career goals

Poitras turned things around for the Bruins, tallying twice in a span of 3:51 during the third period. His second goal stood as the game-winner.
