    Grzelcyk (lower body) will play in Monday's game versus the Flyers, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.

    Impact

    Grzelcyk exited Saturday's game versus the Islanders with a lower-body injury and didn't return, but he's fine going forward. The 26-year-old has been impressive this year with 14 points -- five with the man advantage -- through 45 games, but his opportunities are limited on the third pairing, as he's averaging 18:18 of ice time per contest.

    News

    Grzelcyk (lower body) isn't expected to return to Saturday's game versus the Islanders, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

    Impact

    Grzelcyk logged 1:27 of ice time before departing. While the Bruins stopped short of ruling the defenseman out for the rest of Saturday night's contest, a return seems unlikely. Grzelcyk will hope to heal up in time to face the Flyers on Monday.

    Grzelcyk (illness) had two assists and was plus-3 with two blocks and two PIM in Tuesday's 6-2 win over Nashville.

    Impact

    Grzelcyk missed Saturday's loss to Edmonton but was back in the lineup Tuesday and logged 17:33 of ice time. He assisted on Boston's first two goals of the game, including Danton Heinen's short-handed goal midway through the second period. Grzelcyk has two goals and 13 points in 43 games, inching him toward the career-best 18 points he had in 2018-19.

    Impact

    Grzelcyk missed Saturday's matchup with Edmonton due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 26-year-old will return to his usual role skating on Boston's third pairing and second power-play unit against the Predators.
