David Backes will miss at least the Boston Bruins' next two games after undergoing a minor procedure on his arm.

"David Backes underwent the removal of the olecranon bursa from his elbow on Monday, Oct. 24. His condition will be updated after the weekend," general manager Don Sweeney said in a statement released by the team.

The bursa is a liquid filled sac that provides cushion against the pointy bone in the elbow.
