by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has a mild concussion, the team announced Thursday before playing the New York Islanders.

"Brad has been diagnosed with a mild concussion," general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement. "We will provide an update on his status when appropriate."

Marchand was elbowed in the head by New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov on Wednesday night.

Boston forward Patrice Bergeron also has been out since suffering a concussion April 2. He was with the Bruins’ scratches during an optional morning skate at TD Garden.

The Bruins have Adam McQuaid back in the lineup for the first time since March 19, when he strained his shoulder.
