Bruins' Boychuk Returns To Lineup

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot/ankle) returned to the Bruins' lineup Saturday against the Coyotes, seeing 22:58 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Though he had missed the Bruins' three previous games, the team didn't limit the rugged blueliner on Saturday. Only Zdeno Chara (23:20) saw more ice time in the contest than Johnny Boychuk, who has recorded 20 points and a plus-30 rating in 64 games to date.

Bruins' Boychuk Could Play Saturday

News: The Boston Herald suggests that Johnny Boychuk (foot/ankle) has a chance to suit up against Phoenix on Saturday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk -- who last played on Mar. 15 -- skated for the second consecutive day Friday, but was later scratched for the B's win over Colorado. His injury is being called a bruised right ankle, by csnne.com's Joe Haggerty.

Bruins' Boychuk Seemingly Out Friday

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) did not take the ice for pregame warmups and is thus unlikely to play Friday, CSN New England's Joe Haggerty reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk took part in Friday's morning skate and appeared to be truly questionable. In his absence, Matt Bartkowski figures to skate on one of the three defensive pairs. Boychuk should have a chance to return for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Bruins' Boychuk A Game-Time Decision

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Avalanche, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk -- who took part in Friday's morning skate, will participate in warmups for the B's before the team decides whether to turn him loose Friday night, or hold him out, with a potential return Saturday against the Coyotes in mind.

Bruins Not Inclined To Rush Boychuk

News: Though Johnny Boychuk (foot) skated Thursday, coach Claude Julien suggested that he won't rush the blueliner back into the Bruins' lineup, the Boston Herald reports. "If he's not 100 percent, there's no reason whey he should play," Julien said. "Again, with the situation we're in, our guys on D have been pretty good overall. We've had a good group of guys that have come in and done the job, so no need to rush things here."
Analysis: With the trade deadline acquisitions of Andrej Meszaros and Corey Potter, the Bruins currently carry a surplus of blueliners, so at this stage there is no compelling reason to rush the rugged, hard-shooting Johnny Boychuk back. Now that Dennis Seidenberg is out for the year, Boychuk is second only to Zdeno Chara in terms of time on ice per game (21:10) for the surging B's.

Bruins' Boychuk Takes The Ice

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) skated with the Bruins on Thursday.
Analysis: It was Johnny Boychuk's first time skating with his teammates since getting banged up this past Saturday against Carolina. While his presence on the ice Thursday is encouraging, the blueliner's status for Friday's game against Colorado remains unclear.

Bruins' Boychuk Still Out

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will not play Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien noted that Johnny Boychuk is dealing with a bruise, which puts the blueliner in the day-to-day category in advance of Friday's game against the Avs.

Bruins Officially Rule Out Boychuk

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will not play Monday vs. the Wild, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien said Johnny Boychuk was too sore to take part in Monday's morning skate, with the team officially ruling out the defenseman for the night shortly thereafter. Boychuk would seem to be at risk of missing Tuesday's game vs. the Devils, barring a return to close to full health overnight.

Bruins' Boychuk Misses Monday Skate

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) was not spotted at the Bruins' Monday morning skate.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk came out of Saturday's win over Carolina banged up, after crashing awkwardly into the boards and limping off the ice, as well as being stung later by a shot that he blocked. It's possible that his absence from Monday's skate was simply maintenance-related, though with the Bruins' surplus of blueliners, the team could decide to rest Boychuk on Monday against the Wild.

Bruins' Boychuk Suffers Likely Foot Bruise

News: Johnny Boychuk had X-rays on his foot after getting hit by a slap shot during Saturday's game, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Bruins coach Claude Julien said Boychuk is hurting but not injured.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk looks to have escaped with a bruise but will still undergo precautionary X-rays. While he can't be considered a sure thing for Monday's game against the Wild, the 30-year-old defenseman seems like a pretty good bet to play.

Bruins' Boychuk Records Two Points

News: Johnny Boychuk notched a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Lightning.
Analysis: With three goals and 19 points in 59 games to date, Johnny Boychuk's biggest fantasy impact thus far has been his spiffy (and tied for league-best) plus-31 rating. Meanwhile, the 6-2, 225-pounder remains a valuable cog on the Bruins' blue line, thanks to his sturdy physical play and booming shot.

Bruins' Boychuk Dishes Out Assist In Win

News: Johnny Boychuk handed out an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Though the Bruins have been firing on all cylinders offensively the last couple of weeks with three-plus goals in six of their last seven games, Johnny Boychuk hasn't really been a part of the scoring surge. The assist is his first point during that stretch of action, and he's compiled only two total points since returning Jan. 14 following the birth of his twin children. Fantasy owners should continue to rely on Boychuk more for what he contributes in the hits, blocks and plus/minus departments than for his scoring.

Bruins' Boychuk Rejoins Team

News: Johnny Boychuk (personal) returned to practice Monday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk left the team over the weekend to be with his wife, who was giving birth to twins. With both babies seemingly healthy and happy, Boychuk is now back at work and will almost certainly be in the lineup Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.

Bruins' Boychuk Out For Saturday

News: Johnny Boychuk (personal) will not be in the lineup Saturday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk left the team Friday to be with his wife, who is set to give birth to twins. Look for him to be back in action Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs.

Bruins' Boychuk Misses Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk (personal) was not at practice Friday.
Analysis: The Bruins offered no insight into whether or not Johnny Boychuk would be available Saturday vs. the Sharks. Kevan Miller will enter the lineup in Boychuk's place if he fails to rejoin the team Saturday.

Bruins' Boychuk Back In Action

News: Johnny Boychuk (back) saw 21:37 worth of ice time in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Flames.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk returned to action Tuesday, just five days after being stretchered off the ice, following a scary hit into the boards that he absorbed in Montreal this past Thursday. After Tuesday's game, Boychuk indicated that his back felt fine, so he looks good to go moving forward, a big break for the Bruins, given the banged up state of their blue line.

Bruins' Boychuk Expected To Play Tuesday

News: Johnny Boychuk (back) is expected to play Tuesday against the Flames.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk has progressed surprisingly well from his nasty hit into the boards during a game last Thursday, avoiding a concussion and only missing two contests with the back injury. He's slated to join Zdeno Chara on the first defensive pair Tuesday with Dougie Hamilton sidelined with an injury of his own.

Bruins' Boychuk Skates Again

News: Johnny Boychuk (back) skated again Tuesday morning, reporting improvement, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: After suggesting that he "didn't feel awesome" during Monday's skate, Johnny Boychuk's more positive attitude towards Tuesday's morning session would seem to bode well, possibly even making him an option for the game against the Flames later in the night. Although coach Claude Julien would almost certainly prefer to let Boychuk rest Tuesday, his other options are looking increasingly bleak, with Dougie Hamilton and Adam McQuaid out while Zdeno Chara and Kevan Miller are just getting over the flu.

Bruins' Boychuk Skates Monday

News: Johnny Boychuk (back) skated Monday and could play Tuesday against the Flames, the Boston Herald reports. "It was all right; it didn't feel awesome," Boychuk said after Monday's practice. "I haven't skated in five days or so, but at least I got back on the ice and moved around a little. It's still pretty stiff."
Analysis: For his part, coach Claude Julien offered optimism that Johnny Boychuk would play Tuesday. "The reason we haven't called a defenseman up is because there's real strong anticipation that he'll be ready to go tomorrow," Julien said Monday. Boychuk has one goal and six points in 27 games to date -- modest fantasy numbers -- but the Bruins miss his rugged play and booming shot, especially with fellow blueliners Adam McQuaid and Dougie Hamilton banged up.

Bruins' Boychuk Nears Return

News: Johnny Boychuk (back) could practice Monday and may be ready to play against the Flames on Tuesday, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk was carted off on a stretcher this past Thursday in Montreal, but his condition has evidently improved swiftly, which is good news for the Bruins, with Dougie Hamilton now sidelined.

Bruins' Boychuk (Back) Out 3-7 Days

News: GM Peter Chiarelli announced Saturday that Johnny Boychuk has been diagnosed with a back sprain that will sideline the blueliner for approximately three-to-seven days, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: This is tremendous news in the aftermath of Johnny Boychuk being carted off the ice Thursday after being hit from behind into the boards. While he'll miss some time, the timetable outlined underscores that Boychuk avoided a serious injury. With fellow defender Adam McQuaid day-to-day, Kevan Miller and Matt Bartkowski are in line to fill in on the Boston back line in the short term.

Bruins' Boychuk Dealing With Back, Not Head Injury

News: Coach Claude Julien clarified Johnny Boychuk's injury as a back rather than a head issue, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports.
Analysis: This would appear to be positive news for Johnny Boychuk, as it seemingly rules out a concussion, an injury that typically results in a more volatile return timetable. Boychuk will receive an MRI on Friday to determine the full extent of the back injury. Julien said the team would likely announce the results Saturday morning.

Bruins' Boychuk Travels Back With Team

News: Johnny Boychuk, who was carted off the ice on a stretcher after absorbing a hit into the boards by Montreal's Max Pacioretty in Thursday's game, was cleared to fly back with the team to Boston after initially being taken to Montreal General Hospital for observation, the Bruins' official site reports. "He's obviously still injured, but we don't know the severity of it and I don't know all the details from it," coach Claude Julien noted after the game.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk, who was able to demonstrate movement in all of his extremities before he was transported to the hospital, will be checked out in Boston on Friday by team doctors. At this stage, Julien suggested that the blueliner is out indefinitely, noting with regards to Boychuk's injury that "obviously it was an injury serious enough to bring him to the hospital and definitely I think he's going to be a little while here before he's good to go."
