Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton has a concussion and will be “out for a little bit,” according to Boston head coach Claude Julien.

While Julien doesn’t expect the 20-year-old to be out “too, too long,” the injury does add even more pressure to a Bruins blue line that’s still coming to terms with the loss of Dennis Seidenberg for the season.

The B’s host the Maple Leafs tonight before visiting Dallas on Thursday and Chicago on Sunday (on NBC).

The good news is that d-man Johnny Boychuk will be back in the lineup after missing Saturday’s 1-0 victory in San Jose to be with his wife for the birth of healthy twin daughters.

      The injuries have been a constant, but the bright side is that the younger guys are getting to learn under pressure,accelerating their development. There’s a lot of time for guys to get healthy .I want the Bruins to peak in the playoffs, not now.

      I don’t care when this guy comments because we all know Habsman is a troll; but, it worries me that he managed to get 5 upvotes. I know this username accounts for one and his Habsman account counts for another…and somebody probably clicked the wrong button by accident…but that means there are still 2 other people out there that agreed.

    Maybe Montreal should start a league for “little people.” Then they could feel BIG like CHARASTEIN! HAHAHA!
