Boston Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton suffered a concussion and will be out for a short absence.

Hamilton had just got back into the lineup after missing the previous 10 games with a lower-body injury. He missed the last few minutes of the Bruins’ 1-0 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night.

Hamilton did not practice on Monday or Tuesday and according to head coach Claude Julien, Hamilton will not be out for long.

Kevan Miller will take Hamilton’s spot in the lineup as the Bruins take on the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night at TD Garden.
