Patrice Bergeron (back spasms) was on the ice again on Monday.

Bergeron didn't participate in the team's practice though. On Sunday, Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy expressed optimism that Bergeron might be able to resume practicing in the near future, so perhaps there's still a chance that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season.

Sean Kuraly is battling a lower-body injury.

The hope is that Kuraly will be on the ice at some point in the next couple of days. Consider him questionable for the season opener for now.
Sep 24 - 5:43 PM

Torey Krug (ankle) might be ready for Wednesday's preseason game.

Krug sustained the fractured ankle back in the second round of the playoffs and has been trying to come back from it. Given that he's a possibility for Wednesday's contest, there's a good chance that he'll be fine by the start of the season.
Sep 24 - 5:42 PM

Noel Acciari (sports hernia) might be available for Wednesday's preseason game.

Acciari had 10 goals and 11 points in 60 contests with Boston in 2017-18. If he's able to play on Wednesday without incident then he should be fine for the season opener.
Sep 24 - 5:40 PM

Jakub Zboril has an upper-body injury.

Zboril has been skating, but not practicing with the Bruins. Zboril had four goals and 19 points in 68 AHL games in 2017-18. Assuming he's healthy enough to do so, he'll likely open the season in the minors.
Sep 24 - 5:37 PM

Ryan Fitzgerald has been battling a lower-body injury.

Fitzgerald hasn't been practicing with the Bruins, but he is skating. He'll probably begin the season in the AHL.
Sep 24 - 5:36 PM

Martin Bakos will miss the remainder of training camp with a lower-body injury.

Bakos is projected to play for AHL Providence once he's healthy. He signed a two-way contract with Boston after scoring 14 goals and 40 points in 52 Czech league games in 2017-18.
Sep 24 - 5:34 PM

Brian Gionta has announced his retirement.

Gionta is closing the books on a career that spanned 1,026 games with the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, Buffalo Sabres, and Boston Bruins. He scored 291 goals and 595 career points with his best season coming in 2005-06 when he scored 48 goals and 89 points in 82 contests. He was also a veteran of 113 playoff games and won the Stanley Cup with New Jersey in 2003.
Sep 24 - 1:22 PM

Patrice Bergeron (back) skated before practice on Sunday.

Bergeron was joined by fellow injured Bruins forwards Ryan Fitzgerald and Sean Kuraly. He still hasn't skated with the main group. "Hopefully that's right around the corner," said coach Bruce Cassidy. "I'm planning on (him being back for the opener). I'm sure he would tell you he'd love to play a game or two, but I don't think that's entirely necessary." Bergeron has been bothered by back spasms during training camp.
Sep 24 - 10:15 AM

Anders Bjork (undisclosed) took part in contact drills on Sunday.

"Hopefully there will be some games for him," coach Bruce Cassidy said. "It's tough to make the team without playing any exhibition games when you're in his position." He has skated alongside David Krejci and Danton Heinen as well as Jake DeBrusk and Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson at practices.
Sep 24 - 10:10 AM

John Moore has skated with Charlie McAvoy during line rushes, but Boston is still finding a spot that works best for him and for the team.

Moore was part of the group that went to China, so he is getting his body back on track. "I think it's gone pretty well," said Moore. "It's a different training camp going to China. It's good to be back. There were a lot of demands physically you’re not accustomed to, like the time change. But I'm excited it feels like training camp again." A clearer picture of where he stands in the lineup should come into focus now that Boston's groups are together again.
Sep 24 - 10:07 AM

Anders Bjork hasn't been able to get into any games at training camp.

Bjork has been banged up and he's been unable to take full contact in practices. He finished the 2017-18 season with a shoulder injury, but it's unclear if that is the issue that is bothering him.
Sep 23 - 10:31 AM

Kevan Miller was feeling under the weather on Saturday.

Coach Bruce Cassidy wasn't sure when Miller would be available to return. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
Sep 23 - 9:59 AM

Ryan Donato is poised to start the 2018-19 season with the Boston Bruins.

"We've liked his game," coach Bruce Cassidy said before Saturday's 4-3 overtime preseason loss to the Detroit Red Wings. "There's nothing he's done to make us think that he's been pushed down [the depth chart]. So that leaves only one spot, right? . . . the fourth line." He could open the year on the third line or get a look alongside Jake DeBrusk and David Krejci on the second unit.
Sep 23 - 9:56 AM

Cameron Hughes scored a preseason goal during Saturday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Hughes was parked in front when he redirected Steven Kampfer’s point shot to tie the game midway through the opening period. Hughes was a sixth-round pick of the Bruins back in 2015. He turned pro at the end of last season after four years with the University of Wisconsin and picked up three points in 14 games with Providence of the AHL. He’ll spend the year in the AHL.
