The Boston Bruins have a bit of a situation among their bottom-six forwards, and it could force GM Don Sweeney to add someone ahead of the NHL trade deadline.
B’s head coach Jim Montgomery told reporters last week that center Tomas Nosek, who suffered a foot facture on Jan. 19 against the New York Rangers, had a setback in his recovery. Nosek was a fixture on the Bruins’ bottom-six forward group and penalty kill units prior to the injury.
“Skated one day. Didn’t go well. He’s off-ice. We’re going to wait a little bit,” Montgomery said, according to Matt Porter of the Boston Globe.
