The injury occurred late Sunday night as Pastrnak fell while leaving a sponsorship dinner with teammates, according to GM Don Sweeney.
The 22-year-old Czech star has enjoyed another dominant campaign in Boston this season, his 31 goals and 66 points both pacing the 2018-19 Bruins. This after Pastrnak poured in a career-high 35 goals and 80 points last season, and 34 and 70 one year prior.

The Bruins currently sit third in the Atlantic, with just a point separating them and the surging Montreal Canadiens, but Sweeney says the injury to the club’s leading point-getter won’t change their trade deadline approach.
