Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly has a broken left tibia and is out indefinitely, general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement Wednesday.
Kelly was injured during the second period Monday night in a game against the Ottawa Senators on a hit by Chris Neil. Kelly has two goals and six points in 23 games for the Bruins this season, and has been a consistent regular on the team's third line since arriving before the trade deadline in 2011.
Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
