WILMINGTON, Mass. — After the two-day, collective bargaining agreement-mandated break for Christmas Eve and Day, the Boston Bruins are back on the ice this morning for practice at Ristuccia Arena.
There are 13 forwards on the ice, including Petteri Nokelainen, who is wearing a red no-contact jersey as he continues on the road to a return from an upper-body injury. In addition to both goaltenders, there are seven defenseman, including Aaron Ward. Ward is in the usual black uniform despite the fact that he too is recovering from an injury (ankle).
I’ll have more as the day unfolds.
