The Bruins Provide An Injury Update on Star Defenseman

Published October 1, 2023 at 4:33 PM
Boston Bruins defenseman Jakub Zboril made a significant stride in his recovery, returning to practice after being sidelined since the preseason opener due to injury.

While Zboril wore a non-contact jersey during practice, this is an encouraging development for the 26-year-old defenseman, especially during a crucial training camp.

With the final year of his contract approaching, carrying an AAV of $1.1375 million, Zboril faces an essential camp. The Bruins might consider waivers for cap flexibility, making it vital for Zboril to demonstrate his skills and secure his spot.

Zboril's rapid recovery from a torn ACL, an injury from December 2021, deserves recognition. He had a promising season interrupted by the injury but shone during last summer's training camp, earning praise as one of the standout performers and cementing his place as an NHL regular.

While his playing time had some ups and downs last season, his return to practice is a positive step forward in his journey.
