He's been dealing with a concussion.
Komets forward Jason Dale is out indefinitely after he re-injured his groin during Wednesday's game. He had an MRI today but the results are not yet known.
Nathan Martine and Sy Nutkevitch will be activated for Friday's game.
From a Komets press release:
Seems like the only group that can make it's way through the Wings' NZT is the Auger, Marino and Ouellet line. Everybody else is dump and chase, and no one can recover the puck. Wings are doing a great job of moving it quickly out of their own zone. Couple of sloppy and obvious penalties by the Komets.
Not good so far. Boring hockey, too. No entertainment value whatsoever.
I understand the Olympics are a pain in the backside for NHL teams which are shut down for three weeks in the middle of the season. I also understand that the Olympics are probably the greatest marketing tool and best chance to introduce the sport to new fans. I also want to see the best athletes possible at the Olympics.
So the question is, do you want NHL players in the next Olympics? Why or why not?
