Claude Julien: ‘Very doubtful’ Adam McQuaid plays for Bruins before Olympic break

WILMINGTON — Adam McQuaid did not skate Monday, and with the B’s now five days away from their last game before the Olympic break, B’s coach Claude Julien [1] admitted it is “very doubtful” that McQuaid will play before the break.

McQuaid has been limited to 30 games this season, missing the other 24 due to lower-body injuries. He has not played since the team’s Jan. 19 game in Chicago due to a leg injury.

‘€œHe’€™s hasn’€™t started skating yet, so it would be very doubtful that he would play until after the break,” Julien said. “If he’€™s 100 percent, and I checked on him today, they weren’€™t putting him on the ice and he was only going to start skating sometime this week, so he’€™s been out too long for me to throw him out there. I would be very surprised if you see him here.’€

David Warsofsky, who was recalled Monday, practiced with the team as he prepares to play Thursday and Saturday with Zdeno Chara [2] out.
