Stoll's wrist: good days, bad days

As you might remember, Jarret Stoll missed the early part of training camp due to arthritis issues, particularly in his wrist. Stoll hasn’t missed any time since he started practicing in camp, but I thought it would be good to check in with him and see if he’s dealing with any problems with it…

STOLL: “It’s OK, it’s fine. There’s some good days and there’s some bad days. There are some rough mornings, waking up sometimes, but it loosens up during the day and I just have to keep an eye on it and monitor it. I’m on the medication and I probably will be all year, just to make sure I can control it a little bit. There’s some tightness. The swelling has gone down, obviously. It’s fine to play. I’ve just got to watch it carefully.”

I also asked Stoll how he thought things were going with the line of himself, Dustin Brown and Teddy Purcell…

STOLL: “We’re getting a lot of chances. We’re creating a lot on the forecheck, I think. That’s how we have to play. We’re not going to be fancy. We just have to be physical off the forecheck and read off each other. I think we’re starting to get better reads off each other and try to get pucks to the net. Hopefully they’ll start going in. Teddy is a bit under the weather today, so I’m not sure how the line will look tomorrow, if he’s in or not, but we just have to get the scoring going a little bit. We have a couple huge games here to finish off the road trip.”
