Derek Forbort News
Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort (undisclosed) won't play Thursday versus Toronto. He was already questionable for the tilt and has now officially been ruled out, leaving Boston without three defensemen for the contest as Charlie McAvoy starts a four-game suspension and Matt Grzelcyk (upper body) isn't available. Kevin Shattenkirk is set to play a much larger role on Thursday, with Mason Lohrei set to make his NHL debut and Ian Mitchell also coming into the lineup. Forbort is regarded as day-to-day, meaning he should make a relatively quick return to the lineup.
Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort (undisclosed) is regarded as questionable for Thursday's big match against the Maple Leafs. Boston has already lost Charlie McAvoy to a suspension and won't have Matt Grzelcyk (upper body) available, meaning the blue line could be down to bare bones Thursday night. Forbort has collected only two points in eight games this season, but he's been highly effective, recording a plus-seven rating. Hampus Lindholm teamed up with Kevin Shattenkirk to form a new-look first defensive pairing in Wednesday's practice, while Brandon Carlo was paired with Mason Lohrei on the second pairing.
Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort (lower body) won't play this weekend against Minnesota and Buffalo. He made an early exit in Thursday's 3-0 victory over Winnipeg, and Forbort's injury will give Connor Clifton an opportunity to re-enter the lineup. Clifton has posted a nice plus-18 rating across 64 appearances while putting in a lot of work without the puck. He has recorded 178 hits and 97 blocks. However, managers shouldn't expect much from Clifton offensively, as he has tallied only five goals and 17 points with 81 shots on goal this season.
Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort (finger) will return from an 11-game absence Tuesday versus Tampa Bay. He was hurt on Nov. 1 in a game against Pittsburgh and was forced to undergo surgery to fix his right middle finger. Forbort will be on the bottom defensive pairing with Connor Clifton. The 30-year-old is a defensive defenseman who has collected only three points this season in 10 games with 27 hits and 18 blocks. He makes a good addition to the Bruins blue line but fantasy managers should look elsewhere.
