The Boston Bruins face a setback as defenseman Andrew Peeke is sidelined due to injury. Coach Jim Montgomery confirms Peeke's absence, citing a "week-to-week" recovery timeline.

Andrew Peeke is out «week-to-week» with injury suffered last night and won't be making the trip to Toronto, per Jim Montgomery

Peeke sustained the injury during the last night's game, taking a shot off his hand from Bertuzzi. He was seen shaking his left hand, indicating discomfort.

Peeke took a Bertuzzi shot off the hand on his last shift. Was shaking his left hand.

Peeke's absence is a blow to the Bruins' defense, leaving a gap to fill. Options for replacement include Wotherspoon, Forbort, or Lohrei. Wotherspoon and Forbort are known for their defensive prowess and penalty-killing abilities, similar to Peeke's role on the team.

Tough loss for the Bruins' defense. Next up is either Wotherspoon, Forbort or Lohrei. Wotherspoon and Forbort fill more of the D-first/PK type role that Peeke had.
