Anybody have an update on anyone?
was wondering too, specifically Bjork, I`m a bit unsure of the timeline of his injury he suffered, if he was/is able to start his off season preparation for camp?
From the Athletic today on Acciari:
After the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Bruins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Bruins revealed that Acciari had been playing with a sports hernia and would require surgery. The procedure was done on May 24.
Now, midway through the summer, his smile is back for numerous reasons.
“I’m feeling a lot better,” Acciari said. “I’m a new man from before the surgery and now I’m back to training and I feel good, really good. I can’t wait to get back out there.”
He’s hoping to be back on the ice in two weeks, which will still give him time to get ready for training camp in September. Because of the surgery, it’s been a completely different offseason for Acciari.
“I’ve had to be careful and make sure the incisions heal and everything heals before I start,” he explained. “I’ve got to do more functional stuff to make sure I’m in a good position body-wise. Not being on the ice is different for me, taking this much time off. But it probably will be good for me because of the way I play. The more time off, the better, and we’ll see during the season. This is all new to me, but it’ll be good come game No. 75.”
He also runs a weeklong camp for kids and just got married.
I hope this is the least posted in thread of the 2018-2019 season
Mods should close it now
Bruins expect Patrice Bergeron to start camp on time - The Boston Globe
Cassidy said Monday that he expects his No. 1 center, who had groin surgery in early June, to be in uniform when training camp opens in Brighton in three weeks. It is Cassidy’s belief that Bergeron, who recently turned 33, also will be ready when the season opens Oct. 3 in Washington.
Cassidy also said that defensemen Torey Krug and Brandon Carlo, both of whom finished the year on broken left ankles, were skating and should be ready for camp. Same goes for forwards Jake DeBrusk (shoulder), Noel Acciari (groin), and David Backes (concussion).
More news in that article...sounds like while Bergeron will make camp on time, he may miss a few preseason games. Reading between the lines, it sounds like the team would be better served keeping him at home, and not sending him off to China. Might make sense to hold Bjork back in the US too: he hasn't played since January, and experimenting with a Bjork/Bergeron combo again (Bjork was on the right wing last year with him, right?) is worth exploring.
I'm looking forward to seeing Acciari back at 100%- I feel like the guy we got for the last third to half of the season wasn't the real player. If he is back with some better speed, more jam, he'd look good with Wagner and Kuraly, or Nordstrom whoever centers that line (Backes?)
I think he was struggling with it the entire season. I'm not sure we've ever seen him at 100% in a Bruins uniform. Management really seems to like him and maybe they know how banged up he was. He could be a real surprise this year.
i like acciari and agree, he seemed limited a lot of last year. but that's probably how it'll
be for him more often than not - the way he plays, he'll be banged up a lot. that said, i
see chris wagner as a faster/better version of noel so curious to see how he looks in a few weeks.
I think this is a good idea.
not ideal Bergy won`t be ready to head to China but could be much worse
Hope Lauko is okay.
Every day Bergeron is not on the ice makes me a little nervous that it's more than just spasms, but I'm glad they're not pushing him, or rather that they're probably locking him in a room to keep him from pushing himself
... back spasms? I thought it was his groin
It seems like every year Bergy is limping into the first game. What’s going on with his off-seasons? Back spasms sound terrible.
Supposedly back spasms can be a result of groin surgery, or at least that's what Bergeron said he was told.
I think that was Jake yesterday...
We desperately need him healthy. Cannot run on a true one center team.
I can't see the above tweet (Bruins probably deleted it to edit?), so I'm just gonna assume it's this one...
That's the one
