Chris Kelly breaks leg, out for a 6-8 months

New, comments

The veteran forward will miss six to eight months with a broken left femur

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

From Bruins.com:

Chris sustained a left femur fracture in the first period of the Bruins/Stars game on Tuesday, November 3 and was transported to Mass General Hospital. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 4 at Mass General Hospital and his expected recovery time is between six and eight months

The injury (not for the weak of heart)

The early estimate of six months would put him out until May at the earliest, so unless the Bruins make a really long playoff run, he has likely played his last game with the Bruins. Just a brutal blow for a team who was starting to gel together.
