Celtics center and amateur reporter Kelly Olynyk may have unintentionally leaked some news Wednesday night about Bruins defenseman Dougie Hamilton’s injury.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli made a weak attempt to dispute Olynyk’s comments, as the NHL loves to only use “upper-body” or “lower-body” descriptors for injuries, but no one’s going to believe him:
Good work, Kelly. With scoops like that, you’ll be a beat writer in no time.
