Top Bruins News

  • Bruins' Anthony Richard: Reassigned to minors

    Richard was sent to AHL Providence on Thursday.

    Richard has a goal, three points and 25 hits in nine contests with Boston while averaging 10:36 of ice time this season. He's also recorded 19 goals and 38 points in 41 outings with Providence.

  • Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Gets starting nod

    Swayman will patrol the crease against the Golden Knights on Thursday.

    Swayman was solid in his last outing Saturday against the high-scoring Canucks, turning aside 36 of 39 shots, but he was unable to pick up a win, surrendering a goal to Brock Boeser off a tip in overtime. He'll try to get back in the win column in a home matchup with a Vegas team coming off a big 6-2 victory over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Remains out of lineup

    Forbort will sit as a healthy scratch for a second straight contest Thursday versus Vegas.

    Forbort is in coach Jim Montgomery's dog house after missing a team meeting prior to Monday's game versus Seattle. The 31-year-old blueliner has managed just four helpers through 34 contests this season, so there's no reason for fantasy managers to track whether or not he's in Boston's lineup on a nightly basis.

  • Bruins' Hampus Lindholm: Unavailable for Thursday

    Lindholm (undisclosed) skated before Wednesday's practice, but he's not expected to return for Thursday's game versus Vegas, Scott McLaughlin of The Skate Pod reports.

    Lindholm was last in the lineup Feb. 19. He has a goal, 19 points, 52 PIM, 36 hits and 73 blocks in 56 outings in 2023-24. Once Lindholm is healthy, the blueliner will likely serve in a top-four capacity.

  • Bruins' Kevin Shattenkirk: Logs assist in shootout loss

    Shattenkirk notched an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Shattenkirk has not played more than two games in a row since mid-January. The 35-year-old set up David Pastrnak's first of two goals in Monday's game. Through 47 outings, Shattenkirk has 15 points, 63 shots on net, 65 blocked shots, 37 hits and a minus-3 rating. With Derek Forbort (coach's decision) likely back in the fold Thursday versus the Golden Knights, Shattenkirk will presumably again find himself as a rotational option on the third pairing.

  • Bruins' Jesper Boqvist: Continues steady run

    Boqvist managed an assist in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Boqvist has two goals and four assists over his last six games despite playing on the fourth line for most of that span. The 25-year-old forward has only ever found modest success at the NHL level, so this recent hot stretch is unlikely to last. He's up to nine points, 29 shots on net, 32 hits and a plus-10 rating through 25 outings this season.

  • Bruins' Pavel Zacha: Contributes assist

    Zacha notched an assist in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Zacha is in a nine-game goal drought, and he has just three assists in that span. The 26-year-old is still playing in a top-six role, but his offense has faded of late. Zacha is up to 36 points, 107 shots on net, 72 hits and a plus-9 rating through 56 appearances. He's a solid depth option in most fantasy formats given his role, but he's unlikely to carry a virtual squad on his own.

  • Bruins' Charlie McAvoy: Registers helper Monday

    McAvoy notched an assist and blocked five shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    McAvoy has been solid on offense with two goals and six assists over his last eight outings. He'd been held scoreless in his previous two games before helping out on a David Pastrnak tally Monday. McAvoy is up to 41 points, 100 shots on net, 103 hits, 107 blocked shots, 71 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 52 appearances. He has an outside chance of matching his career-best 56-point campaign from 2021-22 if he can finish this season on a high note.

  • Bruins' Brad Marchand: Adds power-play helper

    Marchand notched a power-play assist and five shots on goal in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Marchand's offense has been quiet lately -- he has three points over his last seven outings. His helper Monday was his first power-play point since Jan. 15 versus the Devils. The 35-year-old winger is up to 53 points (22 on the power play), 160 shots on net, 72 hits, 62 PIM and a plus-6 rating through 60 appearances. He'll likely finish shy of the 80-point mark, but Marchand could rebound down the stretch if the Bruins' power play improves.

  • Bruins' Charlie Coyle: Strikes on power play

    Coyle scored a power-play goal and added two hits in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Coyle slumped early in February, but he's dialed it back in with three goals and an assist over the Bruins' four-game road trip. The 31-year-old center's tally Monday forced overtime. He's up to 21 goals, 49 points (eight on the power play), 117 shots on net, 84 hits, 40 blocked shots and a plus-8 rating through 60 appearances in a top-six role this season. He's poised to finish with a career year and could challenge for his first 60-point campaign.

  • Bruins' David Pastrnak: Crosses 700 career points

    Pastrnak scored twice on four shots and added a power-play assist in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    Pastrnak scored a goal in each of the first two periods before setting up a Charlie Coyle tally in the third. The first goal gave Pastrnak 700 career points, and he's now at 339 goals and 363 assists over 652 contests in his 10 years with the Bruins so far. He'd gone two outings without a point entering Monday, but Pastrnak has 13 points over 11 games in February and 38 tallies, 47 assists, 31 power-play points, 298 shots on net and a plus-21 rating through 60 appearances in what's been another stellar campaign.

  • Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Still struggling past regulation

    Ullmark allowed three goals on 27 shots in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Kraken.

    This was Ullmark's fourth straight lost past regulation time, as well as his second shootout loss in that span. Kailer Yamamoto had the only shootout tally to tip the back-and-forth game in favor of the Kraken. Ullmark slipped to 16-6-6 with a 2.72 GAA and a .912 save percentage over 29 appearances this season. The Bruins' next game is at home Thursday in a still-tough matchup with the injury-riddled Golden Knights.

  • Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Starting in Seattle

    Ullmark will guard the road goal Monday versus the Kraken.

    Ullmark has gone 0-0-3 in his past three starts, surrendering 10 goals on 90 shots during that span. In 28 appearances this season, he has provided a 16-6-5 record with one shutout, a 2.72 GAA and a .914 save percentage. Seattle sits 27th in the league with 2.75 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Bruins' Derek Forbort: Won't play Monday

    Forbort missed a team meeting and won't be in the lineup against Seattle on Monday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Forbort has yet to register a point in 14 games since returning from a long-term injury, so his absence Monday is unlikely to impact the majority of fantasy managers. The blueliner registers plenty of hits and blocked shots, so he could offer some value in certain deeper formats. With Forbort out, Kevin Shattenkirk will enter the lineup.

  • Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Stumbles late vs. Vancouver

    Swayman stopped 36 of 39 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Swayman held Vancouver scoreless until Brock Boeser's tally 12:49 into the third period. That was followed by a Filip Hronek marker with 1:11 left in the frame to even the score at 2-2. The 25-year-old netminder would wind up with the loss when Boeser added a second goal on a power play in overtime. Swayman had won back-to-back starts coming into Saturday, though the Bruins' defense hasn't been doing him any favors -- he's now faced 127 shots over his last three outings. Swayman falls to 18-6-8 with a .920 save percentage and a 2.49 GAA on the season.

  • Bruins' Matt Grzelcyk: Looks good to go

    Grzelcyk (lower body) is expected to play Saturday versus the Canucks, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Grzelcyk took rushes during warmups in his usual spot on the top pairing alongside Charlie McAvoy. That bodes well for Grzelcyk to come back after a one-game absence. The 30-year-old blueliner has just seven points through 43 outings this season.
