The Boston Bruins begin their regular season against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night. They'll be playing this game without their number one defenceman Charlie McAvoy who is recovering from off-season shoulder surgery.

McAvoy has established himself as a Norris Trophy lite defenceman the last couple of seasons and finished just outside the voting to become a finalist last season while posting 10 goals and 56 points in 78 games with a plus-31 rating.
He moves the puck up the ice, transitioned into the top Bruins power play unit on most nights and reached double-digit goals as he continues to try shooting the puck more often given his ability to generate offense. He also played the physical game that Boston Bruins fans love on many nights, and perhaps on too many nights he was one of the only guys really laying the lumber with his shoulder pads to get his team emotionally invested in the game.
McAvoy had five assists in six games during the playoffs and was again an impact player on the back end, a feat made more impressive when it was learned that the young D-man was going to need shoulder surgery after the season.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound defender is expected to miss close to the first 20 games of the season.
