Stuart to miss the next 4-6 weeks; Kampfer recalled

Stuart will be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks

The Bruins’ 3-2 overtime win last night against the Buffalo Sabres didn’t come without some setback.

Today, the B’s received news that defenseman Mark Staurt will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a banged up finger. He played just 3:58 in last night’s contest against the Sabres.

From Peter Chiarelli:

“Mark sustained a fracture to the 4th metacarpal of his right hand (ring finger) and dislocated his 4th metacarpal phlangeal joint. He was evaluated by Dr. Matt Leibman at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and is expected to miss approximately 4-6 weeks.”

Stuart posted 0-2-2 in 26 games for the Bruins this season with a plus-3 and 23 penalty minutes. He was also hit with the injury bug last season, dressing in just 56 contests for the Black and Gold.

Earlier this morning, the Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer from AHL Providence Bruins to begin skating and practicing with Boston for his ever NHL first call-up. Kampfer, 22, leads all P-Bruins defensemen in scoring with 16 points (3 goals). The Ann Arbor, Michigan, native was acquired by the Bruins from the Anaheim Ducks for a 2010 fourth round pick on March 2, 2010.
