Dougie Hamilton out with concussion

Dougie Hamilton is out with a concussion, Bruins coach Claude Julien  revealed after Tuesday’s morning skate.
Julien termed the concussion “mild” and said that the team doesn’t expect Hamilton to miss too many games. Hamilton had returned earleir this month from a lower-body injury that had kept him out 10 games. He skated in five games before missing Monday’s practice.
“He’ll be out for a little bit,” Julien said, “but we don’t anticipate it being too, too long.”
Hamilton did not play the final six minutes of the team’s 1-0 win over the Sharks on Saturday, but Julien said it had “nothing to do” with the concussion. Given that Hamilton showed up Monday, didn’t go on the ice and was examined by team doctors, it’s likely that he was dealing with headaches (like Daniel Paille  was last month) rather than being diagnosed right at the time of the concussion.
With Hamilton out, Kevan Miller will play in his place. The Bruins now have only six healthy defensemen on their roster. Given that they’ll leave for a two-game road trip Wednesday, the team might recall a blueliner from Providence.
