NHL injury notes

Boston Bruins: Coach Bruce Cassidy on forward Craig Smith practicing yesterday: “He looks a lot better, that’s a good development for us. We weren’t sure, to be honest with you. But he made it through the entire practice…that’s a positive.”

Michael Smith: Carolina Hurricanes forward Vincent Trocheck was under evaluation yesterday and they didn’t have an update on his status.

Forward Nino Niederreiter didn’t travel with the team and is out with an upper-body injury.

Andrew Gross: New York Islanders forward Oliver Wahlstrom didn’t skate with the main group yesterday.

Mollie Walker: Islanders coach Barry Trotz said that both Michael Dal Colle and Wahlstrom are skating and ‘getting closer’ but remain day-to-day.

Kristen Shilton:  Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Muzzin on his injury in Game 6: “It’s frustrating. You take pride in looking after yourself and preventing those types of injuries. It’s just a little groin issue that should heal up no problem.”

  • Kristen Shilton: Muzzin added that he “felt a pop” when he was skating back to the bench.

Kristen Shilton: Maple Leafs forward John Tavares: “Personally from the injury, I’m doing really well and continuing to progress. I feel very fortunate considering what I went through, the traumatic nature of the injury. I haven’t seen it myself, just seen a few images.”

Jordan Hall: Philadelphia Flyers forward Kevin Hayes has sports hernia surgery last week and is expected to have a five-week recovery period.

David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal: Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner didn’t dress for last night’s game. He wasn’t at their optional morning skate and had been labeled a game-time decision by coach Pete DeBoer.

Forward Mattias Janmark missed last night’s game and is considered day-to-day. He was injured after a hit from Colorado Avalanche defenseman Ryan Graves.

Ken Wiebe: Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice said they won’t know the status of defenseman Dylan DeMelo until sometime today.

Maurice doesn’t think that forward Paul Stastny will be out long-term.
