Nosek Set To Miss Significant Time With Foot Injury

Everything has been going right for the Boston Bruins this season as they sit on top of the NHL with a 36-5-4 record and 76 points. After dealing with injuries to begin the season and overcoming missing Charlie McAvoy, Matt Grzelcyk, and Brad Marchand, the Bruins have been relatively healthy until now.

It all started with the Jake DeBrusk injury during the 2023 Winter Classic that will keep him out for at least four weeks. The Bruins have been dealt another blow with the injury to forward Tomas Nosek.

Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, January 21, the following update on forward Tomas Nosek :

Tomas Nosek suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left foot during the team’s 3-1 win at the New York Rangers on Thursday, January 19. He will be reevaluated in approximately four weeks. 

This is unfortunate news as defenseman Brandon Carlo was also injured during that game as he exited and never returned. Still, no further info has been released about the severity of his injury.

Nosek has played a key role on the Bruins’ fourth line, and while he may not put up offensive numbers, he is a solid faceoff guy and penalty killer.

On the season, the 30-year-old Nosek has appeared in 42 games posting three goals and five assists for eight points with a plus-four rating. 

With the loss of Nosek, the Bruins will now have an opening for a young player currently playing down in Providence to make an impact. The Bruins have plenty of options, with Chris Wagner, Marc McLaughlin, Johnny Beecher, and Jonas Koppanen all waiting for an opportunity to prove themselves.
