EDIT: Boychuk was hurt in practice. The Bartkowski recall might be more than filling in as the #7.

Johnny Boychuk exited the ice under his own power – albeit in a strong degree of pain – after the Bruins defenseman was hit in the right leg by a shot during drills at Friday afternoon’s practice just outside downtown Ottawa at the home arena for Carleton University. So it seemed relatively harmless when Boychuk limped off the ice under his own power.

But the rugged defenseman needed help getting back to the dressing room and never reappeared on the ice for the rest of practice, and that’s saying a lot for the player with perhaps the highest threshold for pain on the entire Boston roster.

It now appears perhaps a little more serious as the Bruins have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from the AHL Providence Bruins, and the young blue-liner is expected to be with the team in Toronto for Saturday night’s game against the Maple Leafs.

Was it Krejci that hit him....
