BOSTON — Boston Bruins leading scorer David Pastrnak will miss at least two weeks recovering from surgery on a tendon in his left thumb.

General manager Don Sweeney said on Tuesday that Pastrnak was injured when he fell Sunday night after attending a team sponsorship dinner. According to Sweeney, the doctor will re-evaluate the injury and the timetable in two weeks, but Pastrnak is expected to return this season.

Pastrnak, 22, is tied for 12th in the NHL with 66 points and is tied seventh with 31 goals.
