Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Mar 26)

Florida Panthers' forward Jaromir Jagr suffered a lower-body injury, believed to be to his leg, after he was hip-checked by Chicago's Richard Panik.  He left the game early, not to return, but was able to travel with the team, so his injury isn't thought to be too serious.  He'll be considered day-to-day for right now and he'll be questionable at best for the game in Buffalo on Monday night.

Unless Cam's team can find some kind of Sunday miracle, it looks like his team is going to be the Basement Dweller this week, as his team has only managed to find 8 points, through Saturday's action.

The Nashville Predators have been without their captain Mike Fisher for the last couple games, Thursday night against Calgary and then again on Saturday against the Sharks.  He's currently day-to-day with a lower-body injury and there doesn't appear to be a timetable for his return.  The Predators are in the thick of the Central Division playoff race and they could likely use his services before too long.

Stacey C.'s team has been trying one last ditch effort to find a money spot, but the teams in front of him have been having good weeks too, so it hasn't been working out for him.  His team sits in 7th place at the start of Sunday's action, 16 points out of 6th and 23 points out of the money.

An upper-body injury to goaltender Frederik Andersen cut short his night against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, as the Maple Leafs goalie did not return to play in the 2nd period.  So far, there was no update on the condition of the Leafs' number one goalie, which is somewhat troubling, but we're keeping our ears to the ground on this one, since he's an important piece to their puzzle.

Not only is Andersen important to the Leafs, he is very important to the long-term success of Brian's pool team, which has seen its lead shrink back down to 2 points after Saturday night's action.  If this injury is significant, it could be a huge blow to the chances of Brian keeping 1st place.
