CBJ Injury Report 10/28/2013
- Updated: October 28, 2013
It’s that time again, time to talk about injuries. So far this season, there have been some minor injuries to talk about. Bumps and bruises are starting to pile up, Oh and that nasty flu bug that has been going around the clubhouse the last week or so. This team has yet to put 100% of the opening night roster on the ice at the same time. So with the October portion of the season in the books, lets take a look at the injuries shall we.
Derek MacKenzie is dealing with a lower body injury and did not play Sunday against the Ducks. He is questionable to play Friday against the Penguins. Not sure what the diagnosis is here, just one of those pesky “lower body injuries”.
Boone Jenner did not play Sunday against the Ducks due to a leg injury. He is questionable to play Friday against the Penguins. Coach Richards did say that the JENNERator could miss significant time, but as of today, we have no idea what is going on here.
Cody Bass suffered a broken thumb on September 23rd and is expected to return to the lineup in early November. I too know what a bad thumb feels like, so I feel his pain!
Nathan Horton is still recovering from shoulder surgery. He has said that rehab is going well, and now the time table looks to be January. Lets just hope that by that point, we are still in the hunt.
Matt Calvert underwent abdominal surgery on October 15th and was placed on the injured reserve. He is expected to require six weeks to recover. He should be ready soon. This team needs his energy and tenacity on the ice, and his scoring ability as well.
So there you have it. Lets hope everyone gets healthy soon, and injuries stay far away from this team. A few ticky tack injuries are going to happen, but its the major ones that are always lurking int he shadows. So to the guys on the ice – Keep your head on a swivel, and stay in shape! This town needs you!
