BOSTON -- The injury bug has bitten the Boston Bruins for the first time in the shortened season.
Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg did not take part in the pregame skate and was not in the lineup for Monday afternoon's battle against the Winnipeg Jets at TD Garden. Seidenberg's injury was classified as lower body and his status is day-to-day.
Aaron Johnson will make his Bruins debut in Seidenberg's place. Here are the projected lineups:
He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
