Charlie McAvoy has a sprained MCL

Not a tear, but still some time on the shelf.

The Bruins issued their much anticipated update on the health of Charlie McAvoy this morning, with GM Don Sweeney saying in a release that McAvoy suffered a sprained left MCL in Saturday's win over Montreal.

McAvoy will be reevaluated in a month.

While not ideal, it appears the kid should be back for the playoffs, which would mean the Bruins dodged a bullet.
