The latest injury news – Bogosian, Eberle, Panarin, Iginla, Green and more…
Preseason keeps on rolling, but the week was a little light on injuries. Let’s find out not only who the unlucky few were, but who were lucky enough to join the ranks of the healthy.
ANAHEIM Clayton Stoner – The Ducks are a fantastic team, but they’ll miss this defenseman. Even though his upper body injury isn’t affecting him anymore, he’s under investigation for hunting a grizzly bear illegally.
BOSTON Zdeno Chara – The biggest man in hockey is still day-to-day with an upper body injury. However, he has begun skating, so he shouldn’t be too far off.
BUFFALO Rasmus Ristolainen – After missing much of camp, Ristolainen will likely get in about 2 preseason games now that he’s healthy again.
BUFFALO Josh Gorges – Gorges is dealing with a lower body injury and should be considered day-to-day.
BUFFALO Zach Bogosian – Bogo is week-to-week. Why? No one knows. I don’t know if Winnipeg thinks it’s playoff time, but they’re not disclosing the injury.
CALGARY Paul Byron – The Flames got their center back in practice on Wednesday. He’s been fully cleared.
