Hamilton is skating with the Bruins for the first time since suffering a lower-body injury.

Hamilton has been out since December 8 and missed the last nine games. The Bruins are depleted on the blueline right now, so it is a good-sign to have Hamilton return to practice. He was expected to miss 2-4 weeks and it has almost been three, so he is likely to return to the lineup sometime in the next week.

Hamilton will be out two-to-four weeks with a lower-body injury.

The Bruins defenseman continue to drop like flies as now they are down to just five healthy defensemen. Hamilton play just 5:58 before leaving Sunday's game vs. the Maple Leafs. The Bruins are unsure if Johnny Boychuk will be available tonight. Unless someone is recalled soon, the Bruins will play with five D-men if Boychuk can't go.

Hamilton (lower-body) is being sent back to Boston to be re-evaluated after being injured in Sunday's win over the Maple Leafs.

Bruins head coach Claude Julien thinks that Hamilton will miss at least a week, "we'll see what the outcome is there but, right now, it doesn't seem like he's going to be playing with us probably this coming week. It doesn't look good as far as - the diagnosis on him was he's probably done for at least a week." The Bruins are hopeful that Johnny Boychuk will be available tomorrow at Calgary, if he is not then they will need to make a roster move.

Hamilton has left Sunday's game with an apparent lower-body injury and will not return.

Hamilton appeared to be injured following a collision with Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarson. The injuries continue to pile up for the Bruins who are already without defensemen Adam McQuaid and Johnny Boychuk and lost forwards Loui Eriksson and Chris Kelly last night. It has been a rough weekend for the Bruins in terms of health.
