Morning Preseason Injury Notes (Sep 26)

Goaltender Louis Domingue was supposed to get the full game between his Coyotes and the visiting Ducks in Tuscon last night, but an upper-body injury forced him from the game in the 2nd period and the Coyotes opted to keep him out for precautionary reasons.  Domingue took a shot off the mask in the 2nd period and may have been rattled, but there was no immediate word after the game on the injury, but being held out for precautionary reasons does sort of suggest that Domingue may have been able to return to the game, if needed.  He'll be listed as day-to-day until a further update comes.

A lower-body injury took Winnipeg's Adam Lowry out of the game against Calgary on Monday night.  The coaching staff are prepared to give Lowry a couple days off, by the sound of things, but they don't suspect that the injury is too significant, not elaborating on it at all.

Lowry is a fringe player, according to most of the projections out there this season, but if the Jets can somehow turn it on this year and score a lot more goals, Lowry is the kind of kid that could find his way into that party and be more of a point producer.

Jake McCabe has a solid chance at being a steady defenseman for the Buffalo Sabres this season and that could translate into being a pool worthy player this year, but he'll have to get over a significant upper-body injury, which the Sabres are initially calling week-to-week for his timetable.  The Buffalo coaching staff have been quoted as saying that they won't count him out for the season opener just yet, but if he's going to be reevaluated on a weekly basis, that doesn't bode very well for him.  Keep an eye on this one, if you're looking for a late round defenseman.
