Bruins’ Bruce Cassidy Deems Torey Krug ‘Probable’ To Return Vs. Wild

The Bruins are on a roll this season despite being down a plethora of players. But it appears Boston will be getting back a crucial part to its blueline come Saturday.

Torey Krug has been sidelined with an upper-body injury and was placed on injured reserve Nov. 16. But head coach Bruce Cassidy provided a positive update on the defenseman after Friday’s practice where Krug was with the team in a regular contact practice jersey.

“Trending that way,” Cassidy said per the team. “We’ll make a decision (Saturday). He’s got to check in with the medical staff. He was in a normal jersey today, participated in every part of practice, so that’s a good sign. … I’ll put him at probable, a strong probable.”

Krug tallied 11 points (two goals, nine assists) in 17 games before his injury.

Boston welcomes the Wild to TD Garden for a 7 p.m. ET puck drop.
