Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo was ruled out after the first period of the Bruins game against the Pittsburgh Penguins Thursday night at TD Garden with an upper-body injury. Carlo just returned to the lineup for the Bruins’ 5-4 shootout win on Tuesday after missing ten games with a concussion. There was no further update as of midway through the second period.

Carlo didn’t register a point in his return to the lineup Tuesday and finished a minus 1 with two shots with 22:14 TOI. The 6-foot-5, 227pound defenseman has two goals and one assist in 22 games this season.

Carlo suffered a concussion back on March 5 against the Washington Capitals when Caps winger Tom Wilson followed through with a headshot on Carlo. Carlo missed ten games and Wilson, seven. This week Carlo acknowledged that it was his toughest concussion yet.

 

“I had plenty of vision problems after and hard to see,” Carlo said.

The Bruins trailed the Penguins 20 after two periods of play.
