Already dealing with significant injuries to Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno, the Bruins have announced both positive and negative news about defenseman Derek Forbort.

Forbort sustained an injury during Saturday's game against the Sabres. As a penalty-killing specialist, it is not surprising that he took a shot to the foot in the second period, causing him to leave the game.

What's the Unfortunate News?


Head coach Jim Montgomery provided an update on Forbort's injury and the expected duration of his absence. According to Connor Ryan of Boston.com:

"Montgomery: Derek Forbort is not expected back before the end of the regular season. He's not expected to need surgery."




On a brighter note, Ryan also mentioned that it seems surgery will not be necessary.

Given the current point in the season and the Bruins' position, it is crucial to handle any injuries with extra caution.
