The Boston Bruins will open the season without their No. 1 center.

Patrice Bergeron is day to day with a lower-body injury and will not make the trip to Columbus for the team's season opener against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, the team announced Wednesday.

Defenseman Adam McQuaid is also currently day to day with an upper-body injury and - like Bergeron - will remain in Boston.

In addition, defenseman Kevan Miller underwent surgery to repair a fracture in his left hand Tuesday and is expected to miss six weeks as he recovers.

Following Thursday's contest, the Bruins head to Toronto, where they will tangle with the Maple Leafs.
