Report: Dennis Seidenberg, Adam McQuaid begin skating for Bruins

According to the Boston Herald [3], Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg [2] and Adam McQuaid skated Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena.

Seidenberg was ruled out for the season after tearing his ACL/MCL on Dec. 27 against the Senators, but he is well ahead in his recovery from surgery and the possibility exists that he could return late in the playoffs.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had told the Boston Globe last month that Seidenberg might begin skating later in the postseason, but Steve Conroy of the Herald reported that the veteran defenseman skated for 15 minutes and that “it’€™s not known just how well his knee held up.” It is also unclear when he will skate again.

“My guess is, if we go deep, he’€™€™ll start skating at some point and we’€™€™ll just see how he is,’€ Chiarelli told the Globe on March 21 [4]. ‘€œWe’€™€™ve been very cautious in the past with the injuries and coming back.’€

McQuaid, meanwhile, has been out since Jan. 19 with a quad strain. The team decided to shut him down in early March after he suffered a setback in his attempted return. Conroy reported there is no timetable for either player’s return to the lineup.
