David Pastrnak out for two Weeks

Boston Bruins All-Star forward David Pastrnak will be out for two weeks after he injured his thumb while out with teammates. On Sunday night, Pastrnak and several of his teammates attended a sponsorship dinner. When the event ended at 11:30, Pastrnak fell and injured his thumb. The 22-year-old forward underwent successful thumb surgery and will be re-evaluated after two weeks. The Bruins are confident that he will return and play this season.

Pastrnak is currently the Bruins top scorer with  66 points (31 goals, 35 assists) in 56 games.  Losing Pastrnak could affect the Bruins offense and playoff run. They are currently in third place in the Atlantic Division, but only a point ahead of the Montreal Canadiens.  Any sort of bad form can drop them to the wild card spot.

General Manager, Don Sweeney, stated that Pastrnak injury will not affect the front office strategy for the February 25th Trade Deadline. The absence of Pastrnak could pressure the Bruins to trade for a high-profile forward like Artemi Panarin or Wayne Simmonds.
