Bruins' Boychuk out 4 weeks
Johnny Boychuk suffered a slight fracture to his left ulna against the Rangers on Saturday, and is expected to miss approximately four weeks.
Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli announced Sunday that defenseman Johnny Boychuk suffered a slight fracture to his left ulna (bone in forearm) in the first period of the Bruins' 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers at TD Garden on Saturday.

Boychuk is expected to be sidelined for approximately four weeks.

Boychuk, who signed a two-year contract extension with the Bruins in June, has appeared in all six of the Bruins games this season, notching three assists. The 26-year-old was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round (No. 61) of the 2002 Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
