Maxime Talbot skated on the fourth line at practice on Wednesday.

It's still unclear if he'll be in the lineup on Thursday. Talbot has good leadership qualities and he can kill penalties, but don't expect him to contribute to your fantasy team.

Brett Connolly sustained a broken finger and he'll miss six weeks.

Boston just acquired Connolly from Tampa Bay and he didn't even get to play before getting injured in his second practice with his new teammates. He was struck by a shot from Dennis Seidenberg on Wednesday.
Mar 4 - 3:37 PM

Brett Connolly had to leave practice Wednesday after he was struck in the right hand/wrist area by a shot.

"He got hit in the hand with a puck, so he's gone to see our team doctor to be evaluated," coach Claude Julien said. Connolly was skating with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson in the session. He wasn't able to return.

Coach Claude Julien hasn't decided where to play Brett Connolly yet.

GM Peter Chiarelli acquired Connolly with the belief that he could play in Boston's top-six group, but he skated on the fourth line with Gregory Campbell, Chris Kelly, and Brian Ferlin during his first practice. "I'll have to see," Julien said. "I think he's got skill. I know he can shoot the puck, but we'll see how he fits in with our hockey club and where he fits in with time."
Mar 4 - 9:58 AM

Maxime Talbot could start with the Bruins as a healthy scratch.

Gregory Campbell is close to returning from a three-game absence due to an undisclosed injury, which could result in Talbot being forced to wait for an opening. It's uncertain what Boston's lineup will look like going into Thursday's game versus Calgary at this time.
Mar 3 - 9:05 AM

Brett Connolly will get an opportunity to play in Boston's top-six forward group.

"I see a top-six forward," GM Peter Chiarelli said. "If you look at all his goals, he's a shooter first. He's a net-front guy. He'll go to get goals at the top of the blue. He's a rangy guy. He makes plays, but he's a shoot-first guy. I really like his release. He's young and he's growing. He's going to be a top-six player." Connolly, who has 12 goals and 15 points in 50 games this season, was acquired from Tampa Bay in exchange for two second-round picks.
Mar 3 - 8:55 AM

Zack Phillips has been traded to Boston for Jared Knight.

Phillips was chosen with the 28th overall pick in the 2011 draft, but he hasn't seen any NHL action yet. He has seven goals and eight assists in 49 AHL games this year. Phillips produced 33 points last season for Minnesota's minor-league affiliate in Iowa.
Mar 2 - 5:44 PM

Paul Carey is a member of the Boston Bruins now.

He was traded to the B's with Maxime Talbot for Jordan Caron and sixth-round pick 2016. Carey has 27 points in 43 AHL games this campaign and one assist in 10 NHL outings.
Mar 2 - 5:26 PM

The Boston Bruins have acquired Maxime Talbot and Paul Carey from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Jordan Caron and a sixth-round pick.

Talbot has five goals and 15 points in 63 games in 2014-15. He'll likely continue to serve in a bottom-six role with Boston and isn't likely to have any fantasy value in standard leagues going forward.
Mar 2 - 3:36 PM

Boston has obtained Brett Connolly from Tampa Bay in exchange for Boston's second-round draft pick in 2015 and their second-round selection in 2016.

Connolly had 18 goals and 32 points in 134 career matches with the Lightning after he was drafted sixth overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He has 12 goals and three assists in 50 appearances this year.
Mar 2 - 7:49 AM

The Colorado Avalanche have placed Paul Carey on waivers.

The 26-year-old has just one assist in 10 games with the Avs this season. It would be surprising if anyone put in a claim on Carey.
Mar 1 - 12:36 PM

Brad Marchand scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over Arizona.

Marchand extended the Bruins' lead to 2-0 in the first period and he registered a primary assist on Patrice Bergeron's second period goal. The 26-year-old has 18 goals, 34 points and a plus-8 rating in 57 games this season. He is two goals away from hitting the 20-goal mark for the fourth time in his career.
Mar 1 - 9:50 AM

Patrice Bergeron scored a goal and an assist in Boston's 4-1 win over Arizona on Saturday.

Bergeron was also named the game's first star. The 29-year-old assisted on Brad Marchand's first period goal and he scored one of his own in the second period to give Boston a 3-0 lead. Bergeron finished the night with a plus-2 rating, six shots on goal and one hit. He has 18 goals and 44 points in 61 games this season.
Mar 1 - 9:46 AM

Milan Lucic scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over Arizona.

After dropping six games in a row earlier this month, the Bruins have now won three of their last four. Lucic opened the scoring at the 2:40 mark of the first period. He also assisted on Zdeno Chara's power play goal in the second period to extend Boston's lead to 4-0. The 26-year-old has 13 goals and 34 points in 61 games this season.
Mar 1 - 9:43 AM

Maxime Talbot notched the only goal for the Avalanche in their 3-1 loss to the Wild on Saturday night.

Talbot had not scored since Jan. 30 and this was just his third point during that stretch, so suffice to say he’s not close to being fantasy relevant. The 31-year-old has five goals and 15 points this season. Nick Holden picked up the helper. Cody McLeod had 17 penalty minutes, while Gabriel Landeskog tallied 10.
