Injury update on Stoll
Jarret Stoll, out since last Saturday, when he strained an abductor muscle, is now eligible to come off the injured-reserve list and might be able to play tomorrow against Calgary. The Kings opened up a roster spot today when they put Trent Hunter on waivers, but it’s not certain that Stoll will be able to play tomorrow. He didn’t practice yesterday, and today, while most of the team did video and off-ice work, Stoll went through a vigorous hour-long skate. Afterward, Stoll said he felt better but stopped short of pronouncing himself ready to play.
STOLL: “I felt pretty good. It’s coming along pretty good. It has calmed down a lot, so we’ll see how it feels tomorrow and go from there. I might need another practice, but we’ll see how it feels tomorrow. It’s getting pretty close.”
Question: You’ll try it in the morning skate tomorrow?
STOLL: “I think that’s the plan, yeah.”
Darryl Sutter basically echoed Stoll’s thoughts when asked about the possibility of Stoll playing tomorrow…
SUTTER: “We’ll wait and see what the trainers say. I’d say he’s 50-percent (possibility), based on what they said before. Questionable is 50 percent. So we’ll just see later.”
