New Boston Bruin Chris Kelly Won't Play Thursday Due To Visa Issues

The newest Boston Bruin, Chris Kelly, will not take the ice Thursday evening against the New York Islanders because of visa issues, reports NESN.

Kelly, who previously played for the Ottawa Senators and who is originally from Toronto, Ontario, will not play because the Bruins “have yet to acquire proper immigration approval that is necessary for non-immigrant to work in the United States.”

Kelly will be able to join the team for their Friday night game against the Senators in Ottawa.
