Who replaces Charlie McAvoy in the lineup in Game 1?

Charlie McAvoy is out for Game 1. That much is clear. What’s a little murkier is who the Bruins are going to use to replace him.

McAvoy is a right shot, making it logical to assume the Bruins will want a right shot to take his spot. They could, of course, ask a guy to play on his off side as well.

So...what are the options?

The probables

Kampfer is probably the most likely plug-in here. He’s fairly mobile, is a right shot, and is a bit more offensively inclined than some of the other options, which could help in the McAvoy spot.
