The Boston Bruins, under the leadership of Jim Montgomery, have decided to discipline Jake DeBrusk for his absence from a team meeting.

DeBrusk Faces Consequences After Missing Team Meeting

Head coach Jim Montgomery has just announced that forward Jake DeBrusk will be excluded from the lineup due to 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 demonstrated his scoring prowess by tallying 27 goals and accumulating 50 points in 64 games with the Bruins.


Echoes of Seguin

Fans have been quick to draw parallels between this incident and the time when Tyler Seguin missed a team meeting and subsequently found himself scratched from the lineup.

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 thrived with the Dallas Stars.

This development is likely to intensify trade speculations surrounding DeBrusk. We'll have to wait and see if the winger can regain his form or if he'll be on the move.
