Charlie Mcavoy has been battling an injury since late December. Turns out, it’s a foot infection that he obtained after a blocked shot in against the Habs on December 17th.
Bad luck for Charlie McAvoy. He blocked a shot in Boston’s last game against Montreal that caused a cut on his foot. It ended up getting infected right around Christmas, causing him to miss an extended stretch.

He detailed his injury progression with Conor Ryan of the Boston Sports Journal.
“It actually exploded the skin inside the skate,” McAvoy said of his injury. “Got stitches in there. Played through it to Christmas. Just trying to make it work until then and then we were excited for those three days (off for Christmas) to really just let it heal.
“Unfortunately, on the 24th, 25th, I started to notice signs of infection. Came back to Boston, had to get on top of it right away with antibiotics. … Unfortunately had to cut my time short with my family, but it was good to get on top of it, because I really didn’t know much about it.”
It’s good that he got that checked out. In this age of superbugs and antibiotic resistant bacteria, an injury like that can devastate a career.
Yesterday was the first time McAvoy returned to practice wearing a normal black practice jersey, which means his return is imminent, though he’s ruled out for tonight’s tilt against the Caps.
Still with Charlie dealing with things that are beyond his control, some of the dumbest Bruins fans, who probably have bought too much into Tardygate, are making dumb predictions about the young defenseman.
Lmao “outta the league in three years,” dude he was on the wrong end of a blocked shot and suffered a concussion before that. He’s not getting injured because he’s not taking care of himself. there’s legit no way you actually believe your own statement, right? https://t.co/InNAsPvFJK

This is just an insane take. Imagine being that stupid. I know it’s too difficult because you are all highly intelligent humans who believe that Charlie has been bitten bad by the injury bug and that big needs to fuck off.
Anyway, one last Charlie thing – Charlie took the Biz Nasty Challenge recently. Just a gentle reminder there are no reptiles depicted but some mentions of some slithery legless animals.
