Bruins left wing Jake DeBrusk has missed the last three games because of an upper-body injury. That streak may end Thursday against Arizona.
Assuming DeBrusk does not have a setback, he is tracking toward a return against the Coyotes. DeBrusk practiced Wednesday as David Krejci’s left wing.
DeBrusk is on injured reserve. The Bruins are currently carrying the 23-player maximum. Once DeBrusk is activated, they would have to make a transaction, perhaps assigning Matt Beleskey to Providence. Bruce Cassidy ruled out assigning Danton Heinen because of how well the second-year pro has performed.
Another option would be to place Ryan Spooner on injured reserve. Spooner did not practice Wednesday. He is not 100 percent following his groin tear.
Defenseman Torey Krug was given the day off, but Cassidy expects Krug to be available against Arizona.
