Bruins defenseman Seidenberg out for season

Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg will miss the rest of season with torn ligaments in his right knee, the team annouced Saturday.

Seidenberg injured his ACL and MCL in the third period Friday against the Ottawa Senators in an awkward fall.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said the team has recalled defenseman Zach Trotman from Providence of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis and assigned goaltender Niklas Svedberg to Providence. Trotman will join the team in Ottawa on Saturday and is eligible to play.

The Bruins said Seidenberg is expected to need 6-8 months to recover.

Seidenberg, 32, had one goal and nine assists in 34 games this season. He is second on the Bruins in time on ice at 21:50 per game, behind the 25:02 of Zdeno Chara.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
