Well, the big week is here. I'll have more coming up later but here are the injury updates.
Coach York- Coach got out of the hospital this morning after a short surgery on his eye. Everything went well and Coach is resting at home. However, he will not be behind the bench this weekend. Coach Cav and Coach Brown will share the head coaching duties.
Billy Arnold- After taking a vicious leg check in the second period of Saturday's game, there was a real worry that Arnold would be out fore an extended period of time but he had a bruised thigh and will be good to go this weekend. He took the day off from practice to get healthy.
Mike Matheson- He is a little bruised up and took the day off from practice. He, like Arnold, will be fine for Friday's big game.
