Bruins begin practice with six defensemen, no David Krejci

WILMINGTON — The Bruins lost Johnny Boychuk [1] for what they deem to be “approximately” four weeks after he suffered a fractured bone in his forearm on Saturday. Upon returning to practice on Monday, the team had yet to add another defenseman to the mix, with Matt Bartkowski seeming the natural option to get the call from Providence. Here were the defensive pairings in the early going.

Zdeno Chara [2]Andrew Ference [3]

Mark Stuart [4]Dennis Seidenberg [5]

Matt Hunwick – Adam McQuaid

David Krejci [6] was also missing from practice. Daniel Paille [7] wore the white jersey and centered Milan Lucic [8] and Nathan Horton [9] in his absence. Stay tuned for more from the locker room following practice.
