The Boston Bruins made some noteworthy roster moves as the All-Star break draws to a close on Monday.

Let’s start in net. Jonas Gustavsson was placed on injured reserve, opening up an emergency recall for fellow goalie Malcolm Subban.

The larger on-ice impact may come with David Pastrnak (pictured) being recalled, however. While he hasn’t quite got off the ground at the NHL level so far in 2015-16, he closed out last season on a tear, so we’ll see if he can give the B’s a boost heading into a hopeful playoff run.

It may not be a long stay on IR for Gustavsson, aka “The Monster.”

“We placed Jonas on injured reserve as we await his final test results,” Bruins GM Don Sweeney said. “Pending those final test results, he will be cleared for full participation by our medical staff.”
