Bruins Goalie “Ahead of Program”
It looks like the Bruins dodged a major injury with Jeremy Swayman.
the doorman he was injured in a clash with Patrice Bergeron in Boston’s win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Nov. 4. While seen without crutches after the game, Swayman had an ice pack taped to his knee.
Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery tagged in Swayman week to week, but never specified the extent of the injury. They Keith Kinkaid recalled of Providence on an emergency basis to replace Swayman on the bench while he recovers.
with Brad MarchandMatt Grzelcyk and (probably) Charlie McAvoy all returning before their original timelines, some may think the same could happen with Swayman, especially after Montgomery told reporters that Swayman is “trending ahead of schedule.”
“It’s a couple of days ahead of schedule. It’s already more mobile than we expected,” Montgomery he told reporters at the Warrior Ice Arena. “But it’s not even on the ice yet, so it’s not close.”
While it’s a little discouraging, knowing that Swayman is headed in the right direction is definitely good news.
Until he returns, Nick Foligno has filled in nicely for Linus Ullmark the post-victory hug.
