Noon Preseason Notes (Oct 2)
The Ottawa Senators are not expecting to have rookie forward Brady Tkachuk in their lineup, due to a nagging issue, still an undisclosed injury. That is the only thing that we've seen of this issue, that he is considered to be doubtful for the season opener. The teenager wasn't at practice on Tuesday, due to the injury, and they worked on their line rushes without him. He'll be considered day-to-day, until the team updates us otherwise.
Our reigning pool champion, Stuart, will be off to a slow start without one of his prized forwards, both in the overall scoring race and the rookie mini-game. This will be the second body on the injured list for Stuart's team, joining Seth Jones on the shelf, but Tkachuk won't be on for nearly as long.
