Loui Eriksson will miss tonight’s game against the New Jersey Devils and be replaced in the Bruins’ lineup by rookie David Pastrnak.
Eriksson took a slash from Bortuzzo in the right hand/wrist area.
Pastrnak was recalled by the Bruins on Tuesday after registering seven points in six games at the world junior hockey championship.
The 18-year-old has already appeared in five games with Boston this season registering an assist while averaging 14:01 in ice time.
He is expected to play alongside David Krejci and Brad Marchand.
Pastrnak, Boston’s 2014 first-round selection (25th overall), had 10 goals and 27 points in 24 American Hockey League games after being assigned to Providence on Dec. 7.
