Draft Player News (Feb. 15)

It becomes somewhat of a strange season when a player has to miss time in the regular season twice to separate charley horses, but that's the ailment that kept Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck out of the line-up on Tuesday night, as they took on the Ducks. Clutterbuck, one of the more physical players in the league, is a pretty good candidate for two charley horses in the same season, just by the way that he plays.  Consider him day-to-day for right now.

Clutterbuck was still considered one of the more odd selections in the pool this season, but Darren S. has actually seen the appropriate amount of points out of his 271st selection in the pool, getting 20 points in 51 games from him, ranking him 282nd overall.

An upper-body injury made Nashville Predators forward Patric Hornqvist into a late scratch for the team's game against the Blackhawks.  There have been very few details available for this notable injury, except the fact that the team announced the injury and that he missed the game, but Wednesday morning has shown nothing new to elaborate on it any further.  If there is anything more to this injury, then I'll probably find a post for it, but we'll consider him day-to-day.

Well, Peter H. had the hottest team last week, but has gotten off to a slower start in Week Twenty, with only 4 points in the first couple nights of action.  This injury may hurt his chances slightly of making his success into somewhat of a streak, but we'll see how long Hornqvist is out.
