Bruins' Seidenberg (Knee) Continues To Progress

News: Dennis Seidenberg continues to strengthen his knee in the wake of January surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL, the Boston Herald reports. "The rehab is basically over, everything is basically healed,"Seidenberg noted. "The patellar tendon has to adjust to being smaller and having more pressure I guess, so that's what I have right now...I'm just trying to work that out and once I do, I should be 100 percent."
Analysis: The report suggests that if the Bruins had advanced to the Eastern Conference finals, it's possible that Dennis Seidenberg might have had a chance to play, but his focus is now on getting his knee back to full strength in advance of training camp, which the sturdy blueliner expects to be ready for.

Bruins' Seidenberg Continues To Progress

News: Dennis Seidenberg (knee) was spotted taking some light contact at Monday's morning skate, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: It's yet another positive step for Dennis Seidenberg, who had surgery on Jan. 7 to repair a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. At this stage, we'd still be surprised to see Seidenberg in the Bruins' lineup as the postseason progresses, but it is nonetheless highly encouraging that the sturdy blueliner's recovery is going so well.

Bruins' Seidenberg Progressing

News: Dennis Seidenberg (knee), who has been skating regularly, continues to progress, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Given that Dennis Seidenberg had surgery on Jan. 7 to repair the ACL and MCL in his right knee -- and that such a procedure usually carries about a 6-8 month recovery period -- we doubt that the Bruins are inclined to rush him back, but the blueliner is clearly pleased with the progress of his recovery. "Yes, I'm feeling better," Seidenberg noted Tuesday. "I could probably play right now." In any case, even if Seidenberg does not play before the end of the current postseason, as is generally expected, it looks as if the sturdy blueliner should be good to go in advance of training camp next season, at the very least.

Bruins' Seidenberg Progressing

News: Dennis Seidenberg (knee) was on the ice for practice Tuesday, but did not take part in contact drills, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
Analysis: With the sturdy blueliner nearly four months removed from surgery to repair a torn ACL/MCL, Dennis Seidenberg continues to progress in his recovery, but at this stage, a return to action is not imminent for Seidenberg as the Bruins' playoff journey continues.

Return Not Imminent For Bruins' Seidenberg

News: GM Peter Chiarelli acknowledged a return is not imminent for Dennis Seidenberg, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Dennis Seidenberg resumed skating last week after suffering an ACL and MCL injury back in December, and it appears the team is not counting on him to return this season. The Bruins may need to make it to the Stanley Cup Finals before the idea of activating Seidenberg would be seriously entertained.

Bruins' Seidenberg Takes The Ice

News: Dennis Seidenberg -- who suffered a torn ACL and MCL back on Dec. 27, skated Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair his knee, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The report notes that the Bruins would likely need to make a deep playoff run for Dennis Seidenberg to have any sort of chance to return before the end of the current campaign, but his progress to date suggests, at the very least, that the sturdy blueliner should be good to go in advance of training camp next season.

Bruins' Seidenburg Could Return In Playoffs

News: Head coach Claude Julien didn't rule out Seidenburg (lower body) returning if the Bruins make a deep run in the playoffs, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.
Analysis: Seidenburg tore his ACL and MCL in his right knee on December 27 and wasn't expected to return again this season. The scenario is still unlikely, but it would be interesting to see if the Bruins would activate him if they got to that point.

Bruins' Seidenberg Out For Season With Torn ACL, MCL

News: Dennis Seidenberg tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee and will be out for the remainder of the season, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The news doesn't carry a ton of weight in the fantasy game since Dennis Seidenberg's limited point production makes him mostly deep league fodder, but his injury is a crippling blow to the Bruins' defensive effort. Seidenberg is one of the team's most physical defensemen and has been a major contributor to Tuukka Rask's successes in goal the past two seasons. He's now expected to spend the next six-to-eight months rehabbing and recovering from the knee injury, leaving the Bruins to count on Adam McQuaid to pick up the slack on the blue line.

Bruins' Seidenberg Sustains Injury

News: Dennis Seidenberg sustained a lower-body injury in Friday's win over the Senators and will not be available in Saturday's rematch in Ottawa, CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty reports.
Analysis: Dennis Seidenberg succumbed to the injury in the third period after he appeared to bend his leg awkwardly in a collision with the Sens' Corey Conacher. The defenseman was able to chip in four hits and two blocks before exiting with the injury. Expect the Bruins to recall either David Warsofsky or Kevan Miller to enter the lineup Saturday with Seidenberg unavailable.

Bruins' Seidenberg Plays On

News: Dennis Seidenberg didn't miss a shift after being hit by a shot in Thursday's win over the Oilers, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Dennis Seidenberg had a "baseball-sized lump on his jaw" after the game, but it appears as though the blueliner -- who scored his first goal of the season Thursday -- is just fine.

Bruins' Seidenberg Has Pair Of Points In Win

News: Dennis Seidenberg had a goal and assist in Thursday's 4-2 victory over Edmonton.
Analysis: The first-period goal, Dennis Seidenberg's first of the season, was an unassisted tally on a shot from the blue line that goalie Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk completely whiffed on. Although he probably won't be nearly as productive most nights, the Bruins are counting on Seidenberg to be more of a contributor on the offensive end while Dougie Hamilton remains out until further notice.

Bruins' Seidenberg Back In Lineup Friday

News: Dennis Seidenberg (lower body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Rangers, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: He won't officially be confirmed as a member of the lineup until the conclusion of pregame warmups, but it's likely safe to assume he'll be back barring a last-minute setback. Dennis Seidenberg is tied for the team lead with a plus-10 rating in 21 games and his six assists are tied for second on the club among defensemen.

News: Dennis Seidenberg (lower body) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and could play Friday against the Rangers, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports.

Analysis: Fellow injured defenseman Adam McQuaid will also join the team in Detroit, with coach Claude Julien and his staff to monitor both players during Wednesday's morning state and decide whether or not to use either player in the lineup.

Bruins' Seidenberg Notches Helper Monday

News: Dennis Seidenberg notched his sixth assist of the season (in 20 games) in Monday's 4-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Dennis Seidenberg remains a sturdy, dependable defender who eats up ice time while playing a defensively sound and rugged style of hockey. However, his value to the Bruins on the ice easily eclipses his fantasy value.

Bruins Extend Seidenberg

News: Dennis Seidenberg signed a four-year, $16 million extension with the Bruins on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: Dennis Seidenberg's new deal also includes a no-trade clause, so Bruins fans can rest assured that he won't be going anywhere for a while. Seidenberg recorded four goals and 13 assists in 46 games last year, and could benefit from being paired with offensively-minded Dougie Hamilton on the blue line in 2013-14.
