Monday's Injury Updates - Seabrook, Giroux, Backes...

Uh oh. Brent Seabrook left the game last night after taking this hit from behind from Rene Bourque. It's apparently a head injury but Quenneville said "He seemed not bad after the game," and "It was precautionary." If I was a Seabrook owner I think I'd give him a seat until I see him play.

Claude Giroux returned to practice and even did "a little pushing and shoving" even though he was in the yellow jersey. No return is imminent but this has to be considered positive news. [more from PHT]

David Backes only played 16:45 last night. Appartently he was banged up for a bit but returned later the game. All systems go.

Sean Bergenheim left the game early yesterday with a LBI. He scored in the game before the injury to give him three goals in his last two games... which will probably be the greatest scoring streak of his career.

In news that shouldn't affect your fantasy team: Matt Stajan left late in the game with an ankle injury last night. He's day-to-day.

Updating you on Sean Couturier's status. Looks like he's going to miss Monday's game but we wouldn't expect him to be out for too much longer than that.

Returning to action last night: Jay Harrison and Erik Gudbranson
