It is not said what the initial injury was. Marchand was playing with it for at least one game. It was noticeable on November 15th when the team played the Caroline Hurricanes and Marchand barely saw any time during the third period.
The following day he missed practice but was expected to play. He remained out of the lineup and was placed on Injured Reserve.
Last night he was activated off Injured Reserve and joined his teammates in a battle against the Penguins where the Bruins fell short in overtime. Marchand played just over 18 minutes, recorded 3 shots but had no points.
