Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug will get a late start to the 2017-18 season after an unfortunate preseason injury. The Bruins D-man made an early exit from Tuesday’s preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings after taking a puck to the face. The B’s announced Thursday morning Krug suffered a non-displaced fracture jaw fracture and will be out at least three weeks. He’ll then be re-evaluated before he’s able to make a return. A three-week absence means Krug likely would miss at least the team’s first two regular-season games, Oct. 5 and Oct. 9 home games against the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche. If Krug was cleared after three weeks, he could return for the team’s first road trip, starting Oct. 11 in Colorado.
