Report: Jake DeBrusk to miss time due to leg injury


Monday's Winter Classic at Fenway Park was a day to remember for Jake DeBrusk and the Boston Bruins. DeBrusk scored both of Boston's goals in a win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Unfortunately for the B's, it could be a while before the 26-year-old winger returns to the ice. DeBrusk did not travel with the team to Los Angeles due to a fractured fibula suffered during the Winter Classic, according to Daily Faceoff's Frank Seravalli.

It's unclear when DeBrusk will be cleared to play again.

DeBrusk was in the midst of a career season for Boston. Just over a year removed from his initial trade request, which he since rescinded, DeBrusk is second on the team in goals scored with 16 in 36 games. He has 14 assists for a total of 30 points, the third most on the club.

The Bruins begin their three-game West Coast road trip on Thursday night vs. the L.A. Kings.
