Tuukka Rask Injured, Out 4-6 Weeks; Bruins Sign Marty Turco

Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is out for 4-6 weeks with a lower abdomen strain/groin strain, the team announced Monday. The time period means Rask will likely miss the rest of the regular season (which ends April 7) and possibly some of the playoffs.

He was hurt during the team’s loss to the Islanders on Saturday.

Rask was fifth in the NHL with a 2.05 goals against average and .929 save percentage. Now, he’s gone. Oh well.

In his place, the Bruins signed 36-year-old veteran goaltender Marty Turco, who played for 10 years with the Stars and Blackhawks. Turco will back up Tim Thomas.

Because Turco is joining the Bruins after the trade deadline, he will not be eligible to play in the playoffs.

Before the Turco signing, the Bruins temporarily called up Providence backup Michael Hutchinson for depth.
