During the opening frame of the Boston Bruins’ game against the New York Islanders on Saturday night at USB Arena, Pavel Zacha sustained a lower-body injury.

The 26-year-old forward was out for the remainder of the game by the Bruins after skating eight shifts for 4:40 of ice time. He did not return for the start of the second period. It is unclear when the contest injury happened. Zacha (lower body) is not coming back.

Pavel Zacha: Bruins' top-six center of the future?

With an average of 18:20 minutes of ice time per game, Zacha has 12 goals and 24 assists for 36 points in 57 games for the Bruins this season.

With Justin Brazeau out due to injury, the Bruins called up Marc McLaughlin from Providence on Friday. Prior to the Islanders game, Jim Montgomery, the head coach of Boston, informed reporters that Brazeau would likely start on Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. If Zacha is out for an extended period of time, Boston may choose to activate another forward from Providence or keep McLaughlin.
