Thursday's Injury Updates - Edler, D.Jones, Spezza...

New, 11 comments

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

Alexander Edler missed last night's game with back spasms... hopefully the break will serve him well.  UPDATE: Edler will have back surgery and is out indefinitely, f-me.

David Jones suffered a shoulder injury last night and had to leave the game early, no word on the extent but this guy is pretty fragile and missed almost half a season two years ago with a shoulder injury, so say a prayer.

Shawn Matthias went into the boards ankles-first last night and came up with what could be a serious ankle injury... he'll be re-evaluated over the break.

Jason Spezza (shoulder) has been skating and he's targeting Feb 5th as a return date.

The Rangers were doing some roster manipulation the other day and activated Vinny Prospal from the IR but the word is that he's still a ways off from returning from knee surgery. 

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Andrew Ladd, J.P. Dumont, Ed Jovanovski, Ryane Clowe & Semyon Varlamov.
