E. Staal Granted Leave of Absence

The Carolina Hurricanes have granted Eric Staal a personal leave of absence in the past 24 hours, because of a death in the family. It is unclear as of right now whether or not he'll be available for the Hurricanes' next game on Thursday night in Nashville, but if he does miss the game, this is the reason why.

ImplicationsThis should have little effect on the standings in the pool, as he'll likely miss only one game at best. He is a member of Chris' team in the Draft and does not have a selection in the Sheet pool this season.
