BOSTON – Boston Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller will be sidelined for five weeks recovering from cartilage damage to his larynx caused by taking a puck to the throat on Monday.
The team announced Miller would be out until at least January, with his next evaluation to come in five weeks.
He was struck in the throat by a puck during the Bruins’ 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs and spent the night in a Toronto hospital for evaluation.
Miller, 31, joins Bruins’ defensemen Zdeno Chara and Charlie McAvoy, who are already out due to injuries.
