Bruins’ Hamilton has a concussion


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.
