Bruins' Chara talks injury, no timetable yet

Tuesday, 11.04.2014 / 2:10 PM / News

Matt Kalman - Correspondent

BOSTON – The half hour or so before the morning skate is when Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara typically heads for the hallway below the stands with his stick and a baseball and works on stickhandling and makes a few light passes against the brick wall.

That part of the game-day routine was the same for Chara on Tuesday, except he was wearing a large brace over his left knee and once he was done dangling the baseball he wasn’t able to join his teammates for their skate in preparation for a game against the Florida Panthers at TD Garden.

It’s been almost two weeks since Chara left the Bruins’ lineup with a ligament tear in his left knee that he sustained against the New York Islanders. The original prognosis for Chara’s return was four-to-six weeks from Oct. 23. Not much has changed since then.

“No, there is not a timeline right now,” Chara said Tuesday while making his first remarks since the injury. “I wish I could tell you guys exactly when I’m going to return. But at this point really it’s just such a slow process that who knows what the days are going to be.”
