The 29-year-old Rask has a 3-0 record in the early 2016-17 NHL campaign and has an impressive 1.68 goals-against-average, and .947 save percentage. What many call “general soreness” the Bruins starter has been battling a lower body injury which could’ve been a result of his participation in the 2016 World Cup which took place last month and had him miss the majority of Bruins training camp.

About Mark Allred Jr

Long-time Boston Bruins fan and former beer league goaltender for over 30-years on the ice, Inline, and Dek-Hockey throughout New England. Retired and needed a hobby so writing about the B's talent in the lower levels of developmental hockey is my favorite topic and main focus. It's important to know about tomorrow's stars today in my opinion.
