Bergeron is said to be making progress, but it should at least be slightly concerning to the fantasy hockey crowd that he's missing valuable training camp time. The skilled two-way veteran has missed 21 regular-season games since the beginning of the 2016-17 campaign.

Half of the Bruins are in China preparing for a pair of special exhibition contests against the Flames, but Bergeron reportedly stayed back. According to Joe McDonald of The Athletic, the venerable two-way pivot will at least miss Friday's scheduled session. Back spasms are common for players coming off groin surgery, but this is obviously an unwanted setback for Bergeron as he looks forward to his 15th NHL season.
