Report: Adam McQuaid to miss season-opener

According to a tweet from the Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, defenseman Adam McQuaid (illness) will not play in the Bruins’ season-opener Thursday against the Flyers. Matt Bartkowski, who was set to begin the season as the team’s seventh defenseman, will reportedly play in McQuaid’s place.

McQuaid participated in Thursday’s morning skate, but coach Claude Julien [1] said after the skate that a decision on his status would be made closer to game time.
