Playoff Injury Ninja Ticker (6/4)
WRITTEN BY CHRIS WASSEL | 04 JUNE 2011
Well what do you know the Injury Ninja is on the loose again. Is anyone really surprised? However, the more noticeable injuries will get our full attention now because there are not quite as much injury news to follow. It is always good to wait a bit for just such a reason.
With just two teams left now, you would expect the numbers to go down to near nothing as so many are playing hurt. Maybe teams are hiding a few bumps and bruises. At any rate….
Here is today’s Injury Ticker amount:
Well the numbers should be low and they are. We do not count Rick Rypien as we firmly believe he could play but is being kept out for a reason that is unknown. Players that are probable are not being listed as they are very likely to play barring some kind of unexpected setback.
Here is the injury breakdown for this week:
LOWER BODY: 1 (Dan Hamhuis OUT)
HEAD: 1 (Yes Marc Savard I know)
SPORTS HERNIA: 1 (Mikael Samuelsson done for playoffs)
EYE: 1 (Manny Malhotra cleared but will he play?)
FOOT: 1 (Sweatt still out)
