Bad luck for Bruins hopeful Seth Griffith.
The B’s announced today that Griffith would miss three to four weeks with an MCL sprain in his left knee. The club said the injury occurred in the third period of Sunday’s Bruins-Devils preseason game.
Griffith split last season between Boston and AHL Providence. In 30 NHL games with the B’s, he had six goals and four assists.
The 22-year-old RW went into this year’s training camp as a long shot to make the big club, but with hopes of translating a summer of hard work into more success, eventually, at the NHL level.
“I worked a lot on my offseason training, getting faster, getting stronger in the corners and stuff like that,” Griffith told NESN. “There’s a lot of competition going on right now.”
