Bruins' Torey Krug breaks jaw, will be evaluated in 3 weeks

Bruins' Torey Krug breaks jaw, will be evaluated in 3 weeks”

Torey Krug sustained a non-displaced fracture to the jaw when he was struck by the puck on Tuesday. That unfortunately means that he'll miss the start of the season as well as the remainder of training camp.

The team said he would be re-evaluated in three weeks. Krug tallied eight goals and 43 assists over 81 games a year ago for Boston before missing all six of the Bruins' playoff games with an MCL injury in his knee.

Undrafted in the NHL, Krug has appeared in 319 games over the past four seasons, posting 38 goals and 136 points.

In Krug's absence, the Bruins will once again look to youngster Charlie McAvoy to play a bigger role. The 2016 first round pick was brilliant for Boston in last year's playoffs; despite playing the first games of his young National Hockey League career.

The Bruins also announced that forward Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, who also left Tuesday's game after tumbling into the boards, is day-to-day with an upper body injury.

Two weeks away from their season opener against the Nashville Predators, the Boston Bruins received some discouraging news about their blue line Thursday.
