Player Notes in the Draft (Nov 13)

Some concerning news for the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night, as their number one goalie, Jonathan Quick, left the game against the Buffalo Sabres in overtime with an apparent groin injury. There was no immediate update after the game, nor has there been one on Wednesday morning, but with the Kings playing again on Thursday night on Long Island, there should be some news about the injury before too long.

The pool-leading duo of Kristy & Don are now doing so without any goaltending, going forward.  If Quick's injury is anywhere near long-term, they may have some struggles keeping their lead, which now stands at a season-high, 7 points.  The pair have a team that leads everyone with 231 skater games played, 13 games better than 2nd place, so they will have to stay healthy with their skaters to have a shot.

Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips was held out of the line-up on Tuesday for their game against the Philadelphia Flyers, due to an undisclosed injury.  There has been no word on what the injury is and if there was a plus side, Phillips was a game-time decision before the match last night, which suggests that the injury isn't major and that he likely could have played, if the game meant a little bit more.  He is listed as day-to-day right now.

Phillips is a part of the lacklustre defense on Brenda's team, which rankes tied for 22nd in the pool with only 14 points this season.  Brenda's team currently ranks 3rd in the standings, thanks to the pool's best set of forwards, which has 114 points, through Tuesday night's action.  The absence of Phillips may not be terribly significant for her team right now.
