Morning Player Notes in the Draft (Dec 2)
One quick note from Friday night's action, as Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland was held out of Friday's contest against the Jets in Winnipeg, due to an upper-body ailment. It was quite coincidental, with the return of Luca Sbisa to the lineup from his stint on the Injured Reserve, with his general soreness. There was no full update on Engelland's condition, other than the fact that he is just day-to-day. He's a tough customer, one would assume that he'll be back before too long.
Steve made the move to pick up the veteran defender in the Waiver Draft, not that it has been posted on the blog site yet, but it has happened. Now, if Steve was to catch wind that his new defenseman will miss a significant amount of time, he would be eligible for the drop in the bonus round now too.
