Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk is back in action for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday after clearing concussion protocol, the team announced prior to puck drop.

Grzelcyk will replace Connor Clifton in the Bruins' lineup.

Grzelcyk hasn't played since suffering a concussion in Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues. He was hit hard into the boards by Oskar Sundqvist, who received a one-game suspension.

The smooth-skating defenseman has had a stellar postseason for the Bruins despite a limited role. He's tallied three goals and four assists in 19 games while averaging just over 16 minutes per night.

Boston has controlled 53.7 percent of the shot attempts and 60.8 percent of the high-danger scoring chances at five-on-five while Grzelcyk has been on the ice, according to Natural Stat Trick.
