Bruins put Jake DeBrusk on IR after Winter Classic injuries

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk is expected to miss a month because of hand and lower-body injuries he sustained in the Winter Classic on Monday. DeBrusk is second on the Bruins with 16 goals. He’s now on injured reserve. DeBrusk scored twice in the third period of Boston’s 2-1 win over Pittsburgh at Fenway Park, with both goals coming after he apparently sustained the lower-body injury when he was struck by teammate Matt Grzelcyk’s slap shot.
