Dougie Hamilton D BOS 3 weeks ago

Hamilton (upper body) skated on his own on Tuesday for the second consecutive day, NESN.com reports.

That said, Hamilton is not slated to travel with the Bruins on their upcoming three-game road trip, and unless that somehow changes, the soonest we'll see him back in action is the playoffs, should the Bruins qualify.

Hamilton (upper body) resumed skating Monday.

Though the Bruins haven't outlined a timetable for Hamilton's return, his presence on the ice Monday suggests that a late-season tune-up, or a return for the start of the playoffs (assuming the Bruins qualify) could be in the cards for the blueliner.

Hamilton (upper body) could resume skating next week, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.

While the Bruins have not specified what sort of injury Hamilton is dealing with, the Boston Herald relays via Kelly Olynyk of the Boston Celtics that the blueliner may be dealing with a rib injury. In any case, while Hamilton's return to action is not imminent, Thursday's report is an indication that a late-season tune-up, or a return for the start of the playoffs (should the Bruins qualify) may be plausible for the 21-year-old defender, who last suited up on March 21.

Hamilton, who is thought to be dealing with a shoulder injury, is out indefinitely, according to coach Claude Julien.

Hamilton -- who has recorded 42 points in 72 games for the B's to date -- will be evaluated again in a few days, but at the very least, it sounds as though he is slated to miss time beyond Thursday's contest against the Ducks. His absence, for any length of time, is a huge blow to a Boston squad that is clawing to remain in playoff contention down the NHL stretch run.

CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty indicates that there are fears that Hamilton may have suffered a significant shoulder injury Saturday against the Panthers.

The report remains speculative, however, given that the Bruins haven't provided any updates on the blueliner's status other than relaying that Hamilton (who is out Sunday against the Lightning) will be further evaluated in Boston in the coming days. In Hamilton's absence, Zach Trotman rejoined the Bruins' lineup on Sunday.

Hamilton (unspecified injury) won't play Sunday against the Lightning.

Hamilton will be evaluated in Boston in advance of Thursday's game against the Ducks, with Zach Trotman thus in line to move into the B's blue line mix for Sunday's game, at a minimum.

Hamilton, who csnne.com indicates suffered a suspected shoulder injury Saturday against the Panthers, is not in line to play Sunday against the Lightning, according to weei.com.

With Hamilton ailing and slated to undergo additional testing in Boston on Monday, the Bruins have recalled fellow defenseman Zach Trotman from AHL Providence in advance of Sunday's contest.

Hamilton will not return to the ice Saturday against the Panthers after suffering an undisclosed injury.

Hamilton took a hard check into the boards in Saturday's game and ultimately came away with an injury. He should be considered a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Lightning until the Bruins announce the severity of his injury.

Hamilton picked up two assists in Tuesday's win over Ottawa, giving him five helpers in the last four games.

Hamilton's goal-scoring prowess has been noteworthy, as he's hit double digits in that category this season for the first time (but probably not the last), but he's been piling up the helpers of late, thanks in no small part to a willingness to fire the puck on net -- over that same four-game stretch, he's put 17 shots on goal.

Hamilton collected two helpers in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Flyers.

It's the 10th multi-point game of the season for Hamilton, whose scoring production outstrips defensive partner Zdeno Chara these days. Still just 21 years old, Hamilton probably hasn't even hit his ceiling yet as a fantasy contributor. He could have a 50- or 55-point campaign in his future.
