Via ESPN:

“Rask, 32, is one of the NHL’s leading goaltenders this season, with a 17-4-6 record in 27 appearances. But after leading the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Final last season in combined 70 regular-season and playoff games, Rask said he needed the break.”

We’ll be discussing his decision — and the decision of others — to skip the event on ‘The Huddle’ today from 3-6 PM.
