Kelly will miss 6-8 months with a fractured left femur.

Kelly will undergo season ending surgery to repair his broken femur. Kelly, who isn’t a fantasy relevant forward was a very important depth piece for the Bruins and a great locker room guy. With Kelly out, Max Talbot has been recalled from Providence (AHL).

Immediate verdict on BOS's Chris Kelly injury earlier in week was no structural (ligament) damage to knee. True. But he broke his tibia.

This is a tough break for the Bruins and Kelly. This very likely ends Kelly's season. Jordan Caron will likely stay up with the Bruins as a result of this injury.

in the second period of Monday night's game against the Senators in Ottawa, Chris Kelly collided with Chris Neil in front of the Bruins bench. He was then helped down the tunnel by Bruins' medical personnel, and did not return.

Coach Julien said "No, nothing yet," when asked if there was an update on Kelly. "He's been looked at. We'll bring him with us to Pittsburgh and see how things pan out. Nothing more than that." The Bruins did not hold a morning skate so more news on Kelly's injury will be available a few hours prior to their game tonight.
