Charlie McAvoy Has A Few Issues

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

Hindered of late by a nagging foot injury, second-year Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy will miss a game for the 45th time in his career Tuesday night with the Wild in town. Only 21 years old, the talented back liner has learned in full the lesson of how hard it can be to withstand the physical rigors of what is often a punishing game at the NHL level.

Off the ice, 2018-19 also has been one that has taught the former Boston University star a lesson or two in managing his time and the need to improve his discipline and punctuality.

Noting Saturday night to a Globe reporter that he was guilty of being tardy on two team-related occasions, one for a meeting on special teams and another when boarding the bus after a game, McAvoy confirmed that he was called out on his behavior by senior team leadership and that he now better understands his need to pay closer attention to the details and responsibilities of being a pro.

“I’m a young guy, and trying to adjust and learn all the right things,” a contrite-sounding McAvoy said in an interview during the club’s 2-1 win over the Sabres.
