The St. Louis Blues can't seem to shake the injury bug these days, but the next two additions to the update page don't seem to be too significant, but certainly worthy of a mention. Both forward Alex Steen and defenseman Vince Dunn were not able to practice on Thursday, due to upper-body injuries. There was no suggestion that either wouldn't be ready for the start of the regular season, but their availability for their last two preseason games are in question. Dealing with injuries now usually means that there are likely going to be precautions taken, so they don't exacerbate the injury before the games start to count.
Projected number two goalie for the Dallas Stars, Anton Khudobin, is now on the list of the walking wounded, now dealing with a minor undisclosed injury and he'll give way in the crease to rookie Landon Bow for their preseason game against the Blues on Friday night. For now, we'll consider Khudobin as a day-to-day injury, unless we're told otherwise. Dallas has one more preseason game after Friday and that will go on Sunday evening, at home to the Avalanche and we'll probably know more before then.
