As the Boston Bruins prepare for the upcoming 2023-24 season, their opening night lineup reveals a blend of familiar faces and promising newcomers. Nevertheless, one striking detail stands out: Danton Heinen is noticeably absent from the roster.

The Bruins have officially disclosed their lineup for the first game against the Chicago Blackhawks, and it has left fans intrigued by Heinen's absence.

BRUINS 2023-24 OPENING-NIGHT SQUAD

Offensive Players: Johnny Beecher, Charlie Coyle, Jake DeBrusk, Trent Frederic, Morgan Geekie, Jakub Lauko, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak, Matt Poitras, James van Riemsdyk, Pavel Zacha


Defensemen: Brandon Carlo, Derek Forbort, Matt Grzelcyk, Hampus Lindholm, Charlie McAvoy, Ian Mitchell, Kevin Shattenkirk

While several rookies earned their spots on the roster through impressive preseason performances, Heinen finds himself on the outside looking in. His absence has ignited questions regarding the Bruins' decision-making process and the fierce competition for forward positions within the team.

As the Bruins embark on their new season, fans will be keeping a close eye on how the lineup evolves and whether Heinen's exclusion is a temporary setback or hints at a more significant shift in the roster.
