Bjugstad (upper body) will not join the team for games Tuesday and Thursday, staying back in Florida to rehab instead. However, he is still considered day-to-day.
That means Bjugstad’s next chance to play is Saturday at home against the Maple Leafs. This was a bad time for the American forward to get hurt, as he was struggling mightily before his injury. Bjugstad only has one point, an assist, in his last 11 games, and now he has to wait to get healthy before he can right the ship.
