A fantasized look at some NHL injury news on a Friday morning.
Derek Dorsett took a hard hit last night and was forced to leave the game without returning. Tests revealed a fractured clavicle and he'll be out for the remainder of the season.
Ales Hemsky left last night's game after suffering a foot injury and did not return. I guess it was only a matter of time as he'd managed to play in all 23 games for the Oilers this season.
Word is that there's a "good chance" that Cal Clutterbuck plays tomorrow night for the Wild when they take on the Predators.
Jhonas Enroth left last night's game after allowing the game tying goal to the Devils with about a minute left in regulation. They're saying it's just a cramp and he should be fine.
Word is good for Blackhawks forwards Marian Hossa (undisclosed injury) and Andrew Shaw (UBI) as they traveled with the team to Colorado and will likely play tonight.
Not an injury but Lubomir Visnovsky sat out another game last night as he was still in Slovakia comforting a friend who just lost his son. He will be back in the lineup tomorrow afternoon.
Michal Neuvirth wasn't feeling well so he was a scratch. Not that he was going to start this game anyway.
Keith Ballard sat out last night with a charlie horse. They need to find something more sophisticated to call those injuries because charlie horse sounds akin to hangnail.
Returning last night from the injured: Yannick Weber, Nikita Nikitin, Matt Read, Paul Martin, Ryan Malone, Troy Brouwer
