Paille/By S. Bradley

WILMINGTON, Mass. — Bruins head coach Claude Julien confirmed today after practice at Ristuccia Arena that forward Daniel Paille was diagnosed with a mild concussion.

Paille did not practice today and will not accompany the team on its road trip to Columbus for its game Saturday night.

Paille was hit by Florida’s Krys Barch in the first period Thursday night and did not return to the game. In his place, expect Jordan Caron to skate with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton. Caron should also get some penalty-kill time.
