Grzelcyk rehabbing from knee surgery

Senior captain Matt Grzelyck is back at Bruins development camp, but not on the ice, as the first-team All-American is recovering from ACL surgery performed in May. Grzelcyk, a third-round pick in the 2012 NHL draft, had played through a knee injury during the final eight games of the season before learning that surgery would be needed.

A CSNE report indicates he won’t resume skating until August and is likely to miss time early in the upcoming season. In addition to all six of last year's blueline regulars returning this season, the defense corps will be bolstered by freshmen Charlie McAvoy, who has been projected as a potential first-round pick in next June’s NHL draft, and AJHL standout Shane Switzer.

Grzelcyk scored a career best 38 points last season with ten goals, including the overtime game-winner (video) in the Beanpot Championship game.

►Sophomore Brandon Hickey appeared on The Pipeline Show Tuesday night and discussed his goal of increasing his offensive contributions this coming season. Also guesting on TPS was Sean MacTavish, who indicated that it remained undecided whether he would join the Terrier freshman class.

Looking back
Jack Eichel wasn’t the only former Terrier to impress at Sabres development camp. Evan Rodrigues earned kudos for his performance, including a highlight reel shootout goal, from The Hockey Writers.
