Injured abductor muscle for Stoll
We’ll get to the arrival of the rookie forwards, and tomorrow’s lineup, in a bit, but first, Jarret Stoll talked about the injury he suffered last night. Stoll said he suffered an injury to his abductor (hip) muscle. By being put on injured reserve today, Stoll will be out of the lineup for at least one week. Stoll missed the final seven-plus minutes of last night’s game but said the injury initially took place before that.
STOLL: “I don’t know if you’d call it a tweak or whatever. It’s kind of a similar thing to what I did two or three years ago, with my abductor. I felt it in the second period and I knew it was weak. Then I took one more hit, on kind of a weird play. … I was striding and I was kind of extending my one leg, and he hit me, right at kind of the perfect timing for that. I knew right away. If I tried to keep going on it, it would probably tear or rip or whatever. So, I don’t expect to be out too long. Just treat it, treat it, treat it, and hopefully be back soon.’’
