Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Oct 11)

The St. Louis Blues lost the services of their rookie forward Robby Fabbri on Saturday night, citing an upper-body injury, but as of Sunday morning, there still wasn't much of an update on how bad the injury is.

Fabbri is a part of Ryan's team this year, one of four rookies on his squad, making him the favourite in that race.  So far, Fabbri does have a goal in the early part of this season, helping Ryan to an early lead in the rookie pool.  We're keeping a close eye on this one.

A bout of the flu was to blame for the absence of Canucks defenseman Alex Edler on Saturday night, missing the return game at home in the opening series against the Flames to start the season.

In the opening game of the year, Edler was unable to register a point, leaving Week One with no points for Dale B. to cling on to, but I'm sure Dale is going to be okay, as he goes into Sunday's only game in 9th place, 2 points out of 1st with a skater game to play.

Bruins forward Brad Marchand took an elbow to the head from Montreal forward Dale Weise on Saturday night, forcing the agitating forward to leave the game with an upper-body injury.  The team has yet to confirm that it is anything worse than your run-of-the-mill upper-body injury, but there's a fine chance that Marchand had to undergo the protocol of the early detection of a concussion and the results have yet to be posted.  For now, he'll be day-to-day, if he misses any time.

Marchand is on the team from down under this season, as Brian is hoping for big things from him, picking him up in the 10th round, 253rd overall.  If the dreaded 'c' word drops on him, he'll miss at least a week, so the Bruins are going to be awfully careful what they say, as they are now off to an 0-2 start.
