Major Update On Bruins Player After Player Takes Skate To The Face

Published October 25, 2023 at 5:20 PM
In the closing period of the Boston Bruins' dominant 3-0 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night, Jakub Lauko, a winger for the Bruins, made a swift departure from the ice at the 10:46 mark.

Within the game, while the Bruins maintained a 3-0 lead, Lauko found himself in a harrowing situation. The skate of Jason Dickinson, a forward for the Chicago Blackhawks, accidentally made contact with Lauko's eye area. In response, Lauko promptly made his way to the bench and subsequently headed down the tunnel.

Jim Montgomery, the head coach of the Boston Bruins, reassured concerned observers in a tweet quoted by Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, confirming that Lauko's eye was unharmed following the unsettling incident.

Meanwhile, ESPN's rinkside reporter, Ray Ferraro, indicated that the skate may have narrowly missed direct contact with the eye, landing just above it. As the third period neared its conclusion, both ESPN and the Boston Bruins had yet to provide any further updates.

Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic later offered a tweet to corroborate that Lauko's eye had emerged unscathed.

At the time of his injury, Jakub Lauko had accumulated 9 minutes and 13 seconds of ice time, with two shots and one hit to his name. The 23-year-old winger, initially drafted by the Bruins in the third round (77th overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, has yet to notch any points in the six games he's participated in this season.

The goals for the Bruins were delivered by Pavel Zacha (1), Matt Poitras (3), and Trent Frederic (2), complemented by a 23-save shutout performance by goalie Jeremy Swayman in securing the victory.
