David Pastrnak has surgery on thumb, to miss 2+ weeks

Rough timing, given right before a West Coast road trip. Hey, at least he’ll get some rest?

Today during the morning skate, the Bruins announced that David Pastrnak will miss time recovering from a thumb injury sustained at a team event. Reevaluation in two weeks means he’ll likely be firmly on the shelf until the end of this month.

Joey Mac has a little more:

Major bummer for a team that relies on top-flight scorers to do just that. Coach Bruce Cassidy suggested that the team will need to get used to playing in tight games because scoring support will be down without their elite winger.

Heal up, David! We miss you already.
