Noon Player Notes in the Draft (Oct 20)
Avalanche rookie Tyson Jost isn't having much luck this week, as he was shelved mid-game again, with a lower-body injury. It wasn't clear whether or not this was related to his knee issue that forced him out of action already this week and there was no indication of his status after the game against the Blues. He'll be considered day-to-day for the time being and an update will come, if anything changes.
Steve's team is already among the teams that have the least amount of games to be played this weekend, tied for last with 13 projected games and it could be worse, if Jost cannot go. Steve's team is currently 20th, but only 6 points out of the top half of the standings, so it isn't terrible... yet.
St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko suffered a hand injury last night against the Avalanche, blocking a shot in the 2nd period, and missed the better part of the 3rd period with the ailment. He's currently undergoing tests to see what the extent of the injury is and his availability for the weekend is now up in the air.
Parayko is off to an okay start with the Blues, 3 points in eight games, certainly not part of the big offensive group of the team, but still doing okay. Ryan's team is certainly wishing he was cleaning up on all the points, because his team is mired in 23rd today, already 30 points out of 2nd place.
