News: Campbell (core) will be limited at the start of training camp, the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: As the Bruins' fourth-line center, Campbell is generally off the fantasy radar, but so far, there's been nothing to suggest that his minor mid-core issue will hold him back long.

News: Lucic (wrist) will be limited at the start of training camp, the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: Lucic is recovering from wrist surgery, so this is not unexpected, though at this stage, there hasn't been anything to suggest that the rugged winger's status for the start of the regular season is in any danger.

News: GM Peter Chiarelli said he hopes to have a new deal with Smith done before training camp starts on Thursday.
Impact: The same applies to fellow restricted free agent Torey Krug, though given the team's current salary cap situation, the Bruins may need to make a trade in order to complete those contracts. In any case, once he's re-signed, Smith remains on track to serve as a top-six forward for the B's on the heels of a 2013-14 season in which he notched 20 goals and 51 points in 82 games.

News: GM Peter Chiarelli said he hopes to complete a new deal with Krug before training camp starts on Thursday.
Impact: The same applies to fellow restricted free agent Reilly Smith, though given the Bruins' current salary-cap situation, the team may need to make a deal in order engineer new deals with the duo. In any case, Krug -- who notched 40 points in 79 games last season -- remains in the team's long-term plans, and we'd expect him to be officially back in the fold before too long.

News: Lucic (wrist) will remain limited during training camp, ESPN reports. "It's getting better," Lucic said. "Obviously, it was a long summer, having to be in a cast for 12 weeks. I feel like I've turned a corner on it the last week, week and a half. Still working hard to get it up to 100 percent."
Impact: Lucic continues to work toward building strength in the wrist since injuring it during Game 1 of the Bruins' second-round series against the Canadiens. He said he plans to be cautious in camp, which should enable him to be at full strength when the regular season begins. "Every time you have surgery, it never really goes back to 100 percent," Lucic said. "But you hope that you can get back to a point where you were feeling as good as before the surgery. For myself, just trying to get mentally healthy and get that out of the way, the mental part of it. That part of it is a big part of it to overcome, as far as shooting and just pushing and just all that type of stuff. It's a lot of hard work when you get injured to get to 100 percent, and that's your main goal is to try to get there."

News: Svedberg is in line to serve as the backup to Tuukka Rask this season, CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty reports.
Impact: While Svedberg will technically have to compete with Malcolm Subban for the No. 2 gig, Svedberg is virtually assured of winning the role by virtue of the one-way contract he signed earlier in the summer. Though Rask figures to assume the overwhelming majority of the starts for the Bruins, previous understudies Anton Khudobin and Chad Johnson both delivered impressive numbers when called upon to play the last two seasons, thanks in large part to an impressive supporting cast. The Bruins should remain one of the NHL's strongest all-around teams on both ends of the ice in 2014-15, thereby giving Svedberg an uptick in value in fantasy leagues that start multiple goalies and allow daily roster moves.

News: While there has been speculation that the Bruins might deal Boychuk, he would prefer to remain with the team, the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: Boychuk, who is on track to become a free agent after the coming season, carries a cap hit of $3,366,667 in 2014-15, and with the team dealing with salary cap issues, his name has been mentioned as a possible candidate to be dealt in order to free up some needed space under the cap. The rugged and hard-shooting Boychuk is coming off a 2013-14 season in which he recorded five goals and 23 points in 75 games, to go along with a plus-31 rating.

News: Lucic (wrist) scrimmaged with his teammates on Tuesday, csnne.com reports.
Impact: The important thing to note here is that Lucic, who is on track to skate on a line with David Krejci and Louis Eriksson this coming season, appears to have moved past a wrist issue that required offseason repair.

News: Injuries to two of Chara's fingers that he suffered in last season's playoffs have sufficiently healed, according to the Boston Herald.
Impact: While the report notes that the nail on his ring finger is still growing back, Chara shouldn't be hampered by the issue once training camp opens. The 37-year-old blueliner, who indicated that his offseason workouts focused on improving his quickness, remains on track to see plenty of ice time for the Bruins, including power play duty, a scenario that keeps him on the fantasy radar, on the heels of a 2013-14 season in which he recorded 40 points in 77 games, to go along with 66 PIM and a plus-25 rating.

News: The Bruins have signed Fraser (foot) to a one-year, two-way deal, the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: Fraser, who is bouncing back from a broken foot, which required offseason surgery, has resumed skating and is on track to compete for a wing spot on the Bruins' third or fourth line this coming season.
Sat. Sep 6, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Bruins have invited Leino to training camp on a tryout basis, the Boston Herald reports.
Impact: Though he is coming off a 2013-14 season in which he notched zero goals and had 15 assists for the Sabres in 58 games, the Bruins could use some wing depth and it's plausible that with a fresh start, Leino could carve out a top-nine role with the team if he turns in a strong training camp.

News: Eminger signed an AHL contract with the Bruins on Friday, CSN New England reports.
Impact: Eminger spent last season playing for CSKA Moscow and in the AHL with Norfolk. Considering that he couldn't find a spot on an NHL roster last season, it's hard to believe the 30-year-old could earn one this year.
