Carlo Injures Wrist At Skate, May Not Play Against Senators

Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo cut his wrist on goalie Linus Ullmark’s skate at the game-day skate Saturday morning and may not play against the Ottawa Senators Saturday night in Ottawa.

“He got cut by Linus’ skate during a penalty kill drill,” Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy explained to the media following the skate. “He’s gonna get it taken care of and we’ll see how he is for tonight. Obviously, it will be a comfort thing, and how deep is the cut. He may miss.”

Carlo was paired with defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in the 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders Thursday. If Carlo can’t play Saturday, Boston Bruins defenseman Connor Clifton would draw in after being a healthy scratch against the Islanders.

Carlo has three goals and three assists in 46 games this season.

Cassidy also said that forward Jack Studnicka would draw back into the lineup Saturday and Anton Blidh will be a healthy scratch. The rookie center will play between Erik Haula and Nick Foligno on the third line. As a result, Boston Bruins winger Jake DeBrusk will be bumped down to the fourth line and play left wing with Tomas Nosek at center and Curtis Lazar on the right wing.

Boston Bruins goalie Jeremy Swayman will get the start.

Cassidy also noted that regardless of who’s in for the Bruins on defense Saturday night, the Bruins need to play a meaner game.

“We have too many nice guys back there right now,” Cassidy said. “To be honest with you, we need to have more pricks out there.”

Here’s how the Bruins could lineup (without Carlo) tonight when they play the Senators for the second-straight Saturday in Ottawa:

Carlos’ lack of grit won’t be missed.
