Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron will miss a month with a suspected shoulder injury. He was injured when he went head-first into the sideboards.

The 44-year-old suffered the injury in a 1-0 loss to the Dallas Stars on Friday night. He had two shots on goal in the game.

He visited with doctors on Monday. Bergeron was already scheduled to miss Wednesday’s game with the Detroit Red Wings before Tuesday’s announcement.
