Bruins put Rinaldo (upper body) on injured reserve


The Boston Bruins announced that tough guy Zac Rinaldo has been placed on injured reserve because of an upper-body injury.

It’s unclear how serious the issue is, or how it happened, although it’s possible that it happened during Monday’s overtime loss against the Edmonton Oilers.

This may have been a situation that progressed as today went along:

Even with scant offensive production (just a goal and an assist in 26 games), Rinaldo tends to be a polarizing presence, so things might be a touch quieter around the Bruins without him.
