Bruins Injury Update: Dennis Seidenberg will be ready for training camp

By on 9/02/2014 02:00:00 PM

Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg is said to be 100% ready for the start of training camp. Seidenberg says himself that he has trained hard all summer and is ready to play during the upcoming season.

Last season, Seidenberg's season ended early when he had knee surgery in January. He suffered the knee injury on December 27th, during a game against the Ottawa Senators. The surgery was to repair a torn MCL and ACL.

The recovery time was estimated 6-8 months. He started skating before the end of the season and it was rumored he would have been to play a game or two if his team beat the Montreal Canadiens and advanced to the Eastern conference finals.

Instead the journey ended early when the Bruins were eliminated and he went back home and continued to prepare for the new season.

"I think the more I go on [the ice], the more my knee gets used to it, and like always, I never feel good when I start skating every summer, so it will take some time, but once training camp starts, I should be fine,"

"Those times during my injury when the guys were still playing, it went slow. It was painful just to go to every game and watch,"

"The knee is doing well," "I went on the ice with my brother's [Yannic] team in Germany last week for a week, skating four or five times, and it didn't feel great, but that's something I expected before I went on, because I haven't been on for a few months. … So it's going, I think, like we expected."

Last season with the Bruins, Seidenberg played 34 games, had one goal and nine assists.
