Morning Injury Updates (Oct 2)

Joe Colborne, who is returning from wrist surgery in the off-season, suffered another wrist injury, although not re-injuring his repaired wrist, suffering a new injury to his other wrist.  Colborne left the game against the Jets after taking an Andrew Ladd shot to the his right wrist and he was not to return to the game.  There was no early indication, as to the extent of the injury quite yet, but he was going to be a main fixture in the Flames offense, assuming that he remains healthy.

If you have him high on your list, I would sit tight until the updates come.

It sounds like Winnipeg Jets captain Andrew Ladd was lifted from the game against Calgary on Thursday night with an undisclosed injury, but comments after the game say that the coaching staff pulled him for precautionary reasons.  With a week before the regular season opens for the Jets, there's no need to play too much at the moment.  Unless the Jets go down to their official 23-man roster before the start of the season, I would imagine that Ladd won't see much more preseason action and he'll be on the list as out day-to-day.

There is also some concern on the blueline for the Detroit Red Wings, as both Dan DeKeyser and Kyle Quincey are hurting at the moment.  DeKeyser is waiting on some MRI results on his leg, while Quincey is dealing with a lower-body injury of his own, both are currently listed as day-to-day and DeKeyser is the one to watch for, as his update should be coming up soon and could very well go either way.

On the plus side for Detroit, it sounds like Mike Green will play again in this preseason, as his groin problem seems to be a thing of the past.  It's not all bad news here today.

In a post-game presser, the Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper updated the injury status of Nikita Kucherov, who left Thursday night's game against the Dallas Stars with a lower-body injury. The coach suggested that the injury is minor and he doesn't have much concern that he will miss opening night.  Kucherov may be held out of the rest of preseason action, but I wouldn't be too concerned, especially if I have him targeted as a top end draft pick this weekend.
