The Ottawa Senators were without Box 28 defenseman Filip Kuba on Thursday night, because the veteran defenseman suffered an upper-body injury on Tuesday night against the Jets, leaving the game and not returning. There hasn't been much for an injury update, but for now, I would feel comfortable saying that he'll be out day-to-day. Kuba has 2 goals and 6 assists in 24 games for the Sens this season, which isn't solid numbers, but at least he has been contributing a little to the season.
An undisclosed injury kept Jets forward Eric Fehr out of practice on Wednesday and then he was held out of Thursday night's game against the Coyotes, but as of early on Friday morning, there was no explanation as to why. On the plus side, Fehr's absence gave Box 25's Carl Klingberg a recall from the minors and he made his NHL debut on Thursday night, but was held pointless in the game. At least there was some kind of small positive in this news byte.
