Chara leaves scrimmage with leg contusion

Monday, 09.19.2011 / 3:10 PM / News

Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara left the scrimmage portion of his practice session early Monday during training camp at TD Garden after taking a shot off the inside of his left leg.

"Right now it's a contusion and we'll evaluate as we go along here," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "This is training camp and if he needs an extra day here, we'll give him an extra day. If not, then he'll be back on the ice tomorrow."

Yeah I could see him getting leg confusion by the time the thought takes to get there the game would be over.Sorry if my humor is a little off I haven't been able to sleep waiting for Habs Hockey to start.

MONTREAL -- Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is set to make his return to Montreal, with his legal status still in limbo.

Quebec's director of criminal prosecutions hasn't yet made a decision on whether to lay criminal charges over the brutal hit on Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.

Seven months removed from the hit that ended Pacioretty's season, a prosecutor says the case remains under study.

Crown prosecutor Jean-Pascal Boucher says today that his office continues to study the file.

Chara is making his way back to Montreal for the first time this NHL season for a game on Saturday.

The big defenceman shoved Pacioretty into a stanchion, breaking a vertebra and ending his season on March 8, receiving a game misconduct but no further action.

Amid a public outcry, Quebec's director of criminal prosecutions ordered an investigation into the hit. Some legal experts have deemed it highly unlikely that Chara would be prosecuted.

The probe took months to complete, partly because of the Bruins' lengthy playoff run during which Montreal police delayed interviewing Chara.

Chara went on to win the Stanley Cup with the Bruins. Pacioretty has fully recovered and returned this season to the Canadiens; he has been one of the struggling team's rare strong performers.

Montreal police concluded their investigation in August, but the Crown warned it would take time to come to a final decision.
