Injured in a collision with winger Anders Bjork during Wednesday’s practice at Warrior Ice Arena, Bruins goaltender goaltender Tuukka Rask will be out indefinitely with a concussion, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney confirmed on Thursday.

With Rask in the league’s concussion protocol, which can be a sometimes lengthy process in terms of a return date, the Bruins will ride Anton Khudobin as their de facto No. 1 goalie, while Zane McIntyre was recalled shortly after Thursday’s optional skate.

Khudobin will get the start against the Canucks on Thursday.

The 30-year-old Rask is 1-3-0 with an .880 save percentage in four games this season.
