Report: Bruins' Zdeno Chara Suffers Broken Jaw; No Timetable for Return

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara reportedly suffered a broken jaw in the team's Game 4 loss to the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup Final.

According to Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic, the veteran defenseman broke his jaw after being hit with a puck.

NBC Sports Boston said there was no clear timetable for Chara's return.

Chara took a puck to the mouth during the second period Monday night on the way to a 4-2 Bruins loss that evened the series.

Chara, 42, has meant a lot to the Bruins since joining the team in 2006. NBC Sports Boston's Joe Haggerty wrote that if Chara is done for the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins are in major trouble.
