Injury Updates - Oct 12th, 2010

For a consolidated list of injuries & current status, see our Injury Updates page.

Jason Pominville suffered what looked like a bad concussion when Hjalmarsson plastered his head against the glass.  Pommer doesn't have a history of concussions, in fact, he doesn't have a history of any injuries as he hasn't missed a game over the past four seasons.  We'll see how he's feeling over the next few days.

John Tavares seems to be over the mild concussion he suffered on Saturday as he's been cleared to skate and could be ready to go as soon as Friday.

The Ondrej Pavelec collapse is just being called a fainting spell, so nothing serious but he'll continue to undergo some tests and probably won't play for another week or so.

Daniel Alfredsson left last night's game early due to a LBI... he said he's hoping it's not that bad but we know how accurate Alfie is with predictions.

Erik Christensen left yesterday's game early with a leg injury... he should be re-evaluated today but could this open the door for Derek Stepan to jump up to the top line?

Tom Poti sat out last night's game due to a LBI... he took part in the pre-game warm-up but wasn't feeling good enough to play, so he's just day-to-day.

Returning to action from the injured list yesterday:  Patrick Sharp, Chris Pronger & Alex Kovalev.
