Wednesday Night's Sheet Scratches

It's been a pretty rough season for Box 19 forward, Todd White, as he only has 3 goals and 12 assists in 38 games this year and doesn't have a goal in 29 games this year. So, it should be no surprise that White was held out of the Thrashers' line-up on Wednesday night as a healthy scratch to get some new focus. I would expect White back in the line-up soon.

The Stars have sent their Swedish sophomore, Fabian Brunnstom, to their new AHL affiliate for a conditioning stint, as the Box 7 forward has been on the shelf for the past couple weeks with a minor injury. Brunnstrom would do well to get his legs back in the minors, likely not even taking the full two weeks more conditioning stints will allow.

Box 30 defenseman, Bryce Salvador, was not in the line-up for the Devils on Wednesday night against the Penguins because of a lower-body injury. The injury is thought to be a little more serious than a single night off, as Salvador has not accompanied the Devils on their latest road trip.

In the game, it was a quick return to the line-up for David Clarkson, because he ended up leaving the game last night with a lower-body injury, but there has not been any reports as to whether or not this is a recurring injury to his leg, which was broken earlier.
