Schultz Recalled From Hershey
Defenseman Jeff Schultz was recalled from the Bears today and is on the ice practicing. There are 23 players out there, so I'm assuming someone has been put on injured reserve. The only player not on the ice is Alexander Semin, who has missed four games with a sprained right ankle.
We're waiting for confirmation right now.
Also, Boyd Gordon and Brian Sutherby are wearing green jerseys. Without talking to anyone, that would seem to indicate that Gordon is out for Thursday.
Here are the lines:
All the defense is present and accounted for, plus Schultz.
Update:Erskine is likely going to be out tomorrow, replaced by Schultz, who is back with Brian Pothier.
Update:I also talked to GM George McPhee. Semin is on IR, retro to Oct. 7, so he can come off whenever. He's had a round of MRI's and X-Ray's, which have all been negative. But he's not going to play Thursday and I would venture to say he's also doubtful for Saturday against the Penguins.
McPhee also said that he doesn't plan on making any moves to acquire a top-6 right wing in the meantime. He basically said that Joe Motzko and Tomas Fleischmann are his guys at the moment, and it's up to them to prove they belong here.
Update:Make sure to check Dan Steinberg's DC Sports Bog today. He came to practice and promises to have some funny stuff in a bit.
Update:TSN is reporting that Bob Hartley has been fired in Atlanta.
