Bruins' Lucic, Kelly recovering from surgeries
Boston Bruins forwards Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly are recovering after recent surgeries, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday.

Boston Bruins forwards Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly are recovering after recent surgeries, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday.

Lucic had surgery on his left wrist while Kelly had a procedure to repair a herniated disc in his back. Chiarelli said both players are expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Lucic had four goals and three assists in 12 Stanley Cup Playoff games but was held to one goal and two assists in the Bruins' seven-game loss to the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference Second Round. He didn't have a point in the final four games of the series.

Kelly last played April 8 against the Minnesota Wild. He had nine goals and nine assists in 57 regular-season games.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
