The Boston Bruins, led by Head Coach Jim Montgomery, have taken disciplinary action against Jake DeBrusk for his failure to attend a team meeting.

DeBrusk Faces Consequences

Coach Montgomery has just announced that forward Jake DeBrusk will be sidelined as a result of his tardiness at a team meeting.


"Per Coach Montgomery, Jake DeBrusk was late to a team meeting and will not play tonight in Los Angeles."



It's worth noting that DeBrusk has yet to register a point in three games this season. However, in the previous season, he scored an impressive 27 goals and accumulating 50 points in 64 games with the Bruins.

Shades of Seguin

Fans were quick to draw parallels between this incident and the time when Tyler Seguin missed a team meeting and was subsequently scratched.

happy 10 years since seguin was scratched after missing team breakfast babyyyyy


Following Seguin's benching for missing that team breakfast, he was eventually traded and has since found success with the Dallas Stars.

This development is likely to increase trade speculation surrounding DeBrusk. We'll have to wait and see if the winger can bounce back or if he'll be on the move.
