Marcus Johansson, who joined the Bruins in a trade with New Jersey on February 25, was rocked by a Micheal Ferland hit and left the Bruins' 4-3 overtime win against Carolina in the first period Tuesday.

Marcus Johansson has a lung contusion and will be re-evaluated in a week, the Boston Bruins announced Wednesday.

Johansson spent the night at Massachusetts General Hospital for tests and evaluation and was released on Wednesday. He was monitored overnight and was discharged today after further evaluation by specialists.

Injuries dominated Marcus Johansson's tenure as a Devil.

During his speech, Harry stressed the importance of taking care of mental health needs and combating climate change. The duchess looked chic in a navy blazer, black sweater and skinny jeans, while her husband wore a gray suit .

In his two seasons with the Devils, Johansson played in 77 games, including just 29 out of a possible 82 in 2017-18.

To get out of this Garden-echoing collision with a mere lung contusion, and with a timeline that could see him return in less than two weeks, seems encouraging. Now four games into his career with the Boston Bruins following his trade from New Jersey, another injury has hit Johansson.
