Free Agent

The Islanders placed Dennis Seidenberg (upper-body) on injured reserve.

Seidenberg was injured while blocking a shot in the Islanders’ loss in Florida on Saturday. Seidenberg will miss at least one week with the injury after being placed on IR—Scott Mayfield was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) and is expected to draw into the lineup for Seidenberg.

The Islanders signed Dennis Seidenberg to a one-year, $1 million deal last week.

Seidenberg spent the last six and a half years in Boston before he was bought out this summer. Seidenberg had just 12 points (1G / 11A) in 61 games last season and hasn’t topped 30 points since 2010-11. He shouldn’t be on your fantasy radar, but gives the Islanders some added depth on the blueline.

Seidenberg (back) will travel on the Bruins’ three-game road trip; expected to practice with the team, not expected to play.

Seidenberg has missed the start of the season after undergoing back surgery in September. He has been practicing with the Bruins as of late, but traveling with the team to practice is a great sign that he is nearing a return to the lineup.

Seidenberg (back) resumed skating on Wednesday.

Seidenberg is not expected to be back in the Bruins lineup until late November, but it is an encouraging sign that he is skating one month removed from back surgery. He is not close to returning, but the Bruins could certainly use him. However, they will probably have to wait another four weeks.

Seidenberg will undergo back surgery and is expected to miss the next eight weeks.

After trading Dougie Hamilton this summer, the Bruins were already coming in with a weaker blueline than last season and now Seidenberg will be out of commission until late-November. Seidenberg had 14 points (3G / 11A) in 82 games with the Bruins last season. Seidenberg's injury could open the door for 22-year-old Colin Miller to make the opening day roster.

Seidenberg (knee) is doubtful for game 7.

Seidenberg has not played since December 27th because of a torn MCL and ACL in his right knee. He took part in the Bruins' optional morning skate this morning and continues to make steady progress toward a return, but head coach Claude Julien said he would be "very surprised" if Seidenberg plays tonight. Should the Bruins get by the Habs tonight, Seidenberg's return in the Eastern Conference would be a huge boost to the Bruins' blueline.

Seidenberg is out for the remainder of the season after tearing his MCL and ACL in his right knee.

This is a huge loss for the Bruins, Seidenberg is likely their second best defenseman behind only Zdeno Chara. David Warsofsky was recalled this morning on an emergency basis and Zach Trotman was also recalled, both are eligible to play tonight. Seidenberg's recovery time is 6-8 months.
