Updating some injuries throughout the league
Colliton added that forward Kirby Dach will travel with the team to Europe.
“He’s has a nicked wrist for a while,” general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. “He’s been dealing with it quite a bit, but I can’t get into the specifics of the injury.”
- Brian Hedger: Dubinsky’s agent Kurt Overhardt said last night that his wrist injury could be “long-term” but they are not certain yet. He will take some time off and then have it re-evaluated.
“A lot of players play with pain and a lot of players play through things, which he’s done since his surgery.”
Defenseman Joel Persson will be out for seven to 10 days with a shoulder injury.
- Adam Kimelman of NHL.com: Vigneault said he’s not 100 percent sure if Patrick will travel with the team. GM Chuck Fletcher said that Patrick’s injury occurred before the start of training camp and that surgery was not being considered.
“We’ve known about it for a while,” Fletcher said then. “Been working with him for a while to try to get him healthy as quickly as we can.”
Curtis Pashelka: San Jose Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said that Radim Simek is doubtful for their season-opener, though should be ready soon after. He hasn’t suffered any setbacks and is close to being able to join the team for practices.
