The Boston Bruins announced on Monday that their prized rookie defenseman Charlie McAvoy is being sidelined after a procedure to help rectify an irregular heart beat. McAvoy reportedly started to suffer heart palpitations in November and now the doctor's have opted to treat it with a quick procedure. The procedure and on-going treatments should get McAvoy back to 100% and the team expects that it should take a couple of weeks to rectify.
The defender has been very good this season, scoring 5 goals and 25 points in 45 games, not to mention carrying a +18 rating in the plus/minus department. He currently ranks 187th in pool scoring.
Cam chose the rookie in the 8th round of the draft, 182nd overall and he has been getting that type of production thus far, which is pretty good for the rookie. Unfortunately for Cam, the rest of his team hasn't been quite as good and it only ranks 16th overall in the standings. The plus/minus race, however, is another story, where his team is 2nd in the standings, and McAvoy has been one of his better players in that regard, ranking 2nd on Cam's team, behind Bruins teammate Brad Marchand.
