After having surgery in June on his jaw and elbow, Zdeno Chara said he may not be in the lineup for Game 1 of his 22nd NHL season.

“I’m not sure,’’ the Bruins captain said Friday, speaking after a preseason skate at Warrior Ice Arena.

“I think I should be, but it’s a process of making sure there are no setbacks or any discomfort.’’
