NHL Injury Updates
- Alexander Kinkopf: Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said that Crouse is day-to-day with basically just soreness.
“Nik is progressing well,” president of hockey operations John Chayka said. “No new timetable at this stage.”
Charlie Roumeliotis: Chicago Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton on forward Dylan Strome: “He came in this morning … and he wasn’t feeling great. Obviously that’s a serious thing, we want to be careful. He got evaluated by the doctors and we pulled him out.”
“Alec sustained a laceration to his right wrist and was taken to Keck Medicine of USC where he underwent successful surgery to repair a radial artery and two superficial radial nerves. Alec will be evaluated weekly and is expected to make a full recovery.”
Maurice said that forward Bryan Little is progressing but they don’t have a timeline for when he’ll return. Little has been able to do some light bike riding and was at the arena yesterday.
- Scott Billeck: Beaulieu will be out for seven to ten days with an upper-body injury.
- Ken Wiebe: It’s looking like Little will be out for longer than the next two to three weeks.
- Ken Wiebe: Maurice on Little: “He’s still in that healing phase. Before it’s even talked about (concussion) protocol, you need to let his ear drum heal. He’s feeling better. The dizziness has come down and he’s making progress, but it’s going to take some time for everything to heal.”
