GM Don Sweeney said that in two weeks the Bruins will have a better understanding of when Pastrnak can return.

Fantasy Impact: Pastrnak was having a career season and this development is devastating for Pastrnak, the Bruins and fantasy owners.

Danton Heinen had been recently moved up onto the Bergeron-Marchand line to more evenly distribute the Bruins scoring. This move has sparked Heinen to six points in four games, and with Pastrnak down, there seems to be no threat of him being demoted any time soon.
