NHL Injury notes
Craig Morgan: Arizona Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet thinks that defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and goaltender Antti Raanta will be ready for tonight’s game. The status of forward Christian Fischer is TBD. Forward Drake Caggiula skated before practice yesterday.
Forward Ryan Johansen is also week-to-week.
St. Louis Blues: Defenseman Scott Perunovich will miss the remainder of the season with a left-shoulder injury.
He will be having surgery today and is expected to be ready for the start of next season.
Joe Smith of the Athletic: Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos missed last night’s game with a lower-body injury and is listed as day-to-day. During Tuesday’s game, Stamkos got hit but it’s not known what the injury is. They are hopeful he’ll be back soon.
Forward Anthony Cirelli left last night’s game late in the third period with an apparent arm injury.
“Tony will have to get evaluated here,” Cooper said. “It didn’t look great when he came off the ice, but we don’t know yet.”
Similar to Justin Bailey, potential shoulder dislocation/subluxation (non-op is 3+ weeks off and if surgery needed ~5 months off) for Anthony Cirelli but video limited so wouldn’t exclude a separated shoulder (grade 1 7 days off and up from there) @TheFantasyDRS https://t.co/aO5tbRjfho pic.twitter.com/FCqfm7GIla
