Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Mar 22)
An upper-body injury forced Kris Versteeg from Monday night's game between the Kings and the Predators, but the injury isn't considered too serious, as the Los Angeles coaching staff feel that he could be back sometime this week, while the team is on a road trip. He's considered day-to-day, obviously.
Cindy's team is off to a 2-point start after Monday night, with only a little bit of play left in the standings, barring a collapse from her better players. Her team sits 3 points back of 18th and 7 points up on 20th, heading into Tuesday night.
The Winnipeg Jets currently sit in last place in the Western Conference, so there's a good chance that they will be rushing Mathieu Perreault back from a concussion he suffered on Sunday against the Ducks. Protocol would mean he wouldn't be eligible to come back until next Monday, when the Jets visit the Flyers, but it's hard to expect that they would even consider bringing him back, if they didn't have to. A better shot at the 1st overall pick in the Entry Draft is at stake.
This must be the prize for being the Mover & Shaker of last week, as Mike's team suffers another blow, as his team is the one chasing down Cindy's team for 19th place. His team is already down a number of projected games, Perreault included, so it's probably going to be a sputtering finish to his season.
