Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis as he deals with an upper-body injury, the team announced Saturday morning.

Carlo, 24, sustained the injury in the first period of Boston’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday. He was playing in just his second game since being sent to the hospital on March 5 after being checked into the boards by Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson, who received a seven-game suspension from the NHL for the hit.

Carlo has two goals and one assist in 23 games this season. He has recorded 54 points (14 goals, 40 assists) in 320 career games since the Bruins selected him in the second round of the 2015 NHL Draft.
