Boston Bruins

Chara has a left MCL injury and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

As feared, Chara will miss an extended period of time with a knee injury he sustained on Wednesday. This leaves the Bruins extremely shorthanded on the blue line in the immediate future and the loss of Chara for at least one month is a big loss. Expect a new update in mid-December.

Chara (lower-body) returned to Boston to be re-evaluated.

Chara looked to be in a lot of pain after twisting his knee in Colorado on Wednesday. Returning to Boston in the middle of the road-trip suggests that he will be out for an extended period of time. At the very least, he is out for the rest of the road-trip (three games) as Boston doesn’t return home until next Friday vs. the Penguins.

Chara (upper-body) is expected to return to the Bruins lineup on Sunday afternoon.

Chara has been out with an upper-body injury since March 13th but it looks like he’ll play today vs. the Flyers. Chara, who is fresh off of a one-year extension, will replace Brandon Carlo on the blueline after the young defenseman suffered a serious leg injury in Saturday’s win. Chara has collected 23 points (7G / 16A) in 68 games so far this season.

Chara left Tuesday’s game with a suspected upper-body injury and did not return.

Chara took a tumble into the corner boards in the first period of Tuesday’s game and never returned. The Bruins were already without Charlie McAvoy and Torey Krug also left the game, so they were without their top-3 defenseman and were still able to make a furious third period comeback. Expect an update on Chara’s status leading up to Thursday’s game in Florida.

Chara (upper-body) will make his season debut vs. the Lightning.

Chara missed the first two games of the regular season, but will be back in the lineup this afternoon vs. the Lightning. With Chara back in the lineup, the Bruins sent Matt Irwin to Providence (AHL). Chara should definitely help a Bruins blueline that has struggled through the first two games.

Chara (upper-body) is expected to return to the Bruins lineup on Monday.

Chara missed the Bruins’ first two games of the season with an upper-body injury, but he practiced over the weekend and is likely to return tomorrow vs. the Lightning. Chara is likely to take Matt Irwin’s spot in the lineup after Irwin was placed on waivers on Sunday morning.

Chara (upper-body) is doubtful for Saturday’s game vs. the Canadiens.

Chara was labeled as doubtful, but he stayed on the ice for extra work during the morning skate, which suggests he is very doubtful. This is the second straight game that Chara will have missed—however he continues to practice which suggests he could be back next week.
