Bruins Connor Clifton Injured Vs. Sabres



The Boston Bruins have lost defenseman Connor Clifton to an upper-body injury. As per the club, Clifton will not return to tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres. Clifton played just 5:52 before exiting the game. He was paired with Matt Grzelcyk on the club’s second pairing.

The Bruins are already without Torey Krug and Charlie McAvoy. Both were injured six days ago in the team’s victory over the Washington Capitals. Krug is currently on injured reserve and will be out through at least Tuesday’s game in New Jersey against the Devils. McAvoy is listed as day-to-day and remains on the active roster.

Krug skated at Warrior Ice Arena on Sunday morning, while McAvoy did not. The club recalled Steven Kampfer earlier this week to replace Krug on the active roster. Should Clifton go on IR, the Bruins will need to make another recall from AHL Providence.

The only update provided on Clifton is that he will not return to the game. There is no word, at this time, on the severity of the injury.

The Bruins will be forced to finish tonight’s game against the Sabres with just five defensemen.
