The Boston Bruins will reportedly be without captain Zdeno Chara for the next four-to-six weeks after the veteran defenseman suffered a left knee injury during Wednesday's game, a source told Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.
Chara hobbled off the ice after appearing to injury himself while making an awkward hit on Colorado Avalanche forward Carl Soderberg. The Bruins, who are currently on a west coast trip, sent Chara back to Boston for further evaluation.
The 41-year-old has three goals and one assist in 18 games, while averaging 21:30 in ice time. Chara has been one of the league's most durable players despite his age, having appeared in at least 73 games in each of the last three seasons.
