As posted earlier, Erik Ersberg will not make the trip to Denver and Phoenix. Ersberg suffered a hand injury when he was hit by a shot during practice Sunday, but Terry Murray said Ersberg might get some playing time during Thursday’s exhibition home game against Phoenix.
MURRAY: “Everything is fine. We had it x-rayed and we had it looked at carefully by the doctors. Ersberg will stay back and we’re hoping, with a day of treatment, that he’s able to get back, and we’ll take a look at it for the Phoenix game at home. Quick will still play, but I’ll take a look at it. Maybe there’s an opportunity for a period (for Ersberg). I do want Quick to play. The plan is to play him 60 minutes, but with the circumstances, I’ll review it.”
