BRIGHTON, Mass – With the Bruins relatively healthy at this point, they may be getting their roster back to full health sooner rather than later.
Tim Schaller has missed the last seven games after suffering a lower body injury crashing into the boards all the way back in a March 8 win over the Detroit Red Wings. The 26-year-old has resumed skating on his own before or after regular Bruins practice in the last couple of days, but hasn’t yet rejoined the group after missing the last two plus weeks.
Bruce Cassidy indicated that there’s no timetable for his return as Riley Nash and Dominic Moore have tried out different linemates including fellow Providence College hockey alum Noel Acciari.
“He has just begun to skate,” said Cassidy. “I don’t know how far out he is. He is just starting the process of going on the ice for the conditioning part. That’s his stage of recovery.”
Schaller has been a regular staple on the fourth line for the Bruins this season with seven goals and 14 points in 58 games. His size, occasional offense and energy have allowed the New Hampshire kid to be a pleasant surprise for the Black and Gold this season.
