Kesler, recovery from surgery, weeks away?
Hamhuis, tweaked groin, not serious day to day
Lack, lower body injury, out since November may start skating in a week or two
Kassian, back spasms, apparently sorted out the root cause and working it out, no history of back problems.
The second line center spot, they are showing Ebbett and Schroeder in, and its early, so I am not taking too much out of that, but I like that Ebbett and Connauton are included in the main group of 23..incidentally the maximum roster size of the team on Saturday. Its a short week, and clearly they are not wasting much time.
So team plan is 2 G's, 8 D's and 13 forwards? Hamhuis and Kesler would be slotted in at some point, which obviously bumps a D and a Centerman down again.
As for group B, first on the ice, we see LW's Bill Sweat and Darren Archibald, RW's Andrew Gordon and Anton Rodin with Defensemen Peter Anderson, Derek Joslin, Kevin Connauton, and Franky Corrado. Also up is Joe Cannata in net, thanks to the poster below for reminding me Lack is out with a groin injury since November.
Tellingly of my own bias is that I forgot Tanev was not a full time Canuck yet...he is with the callups trying to make the sqaud i guess in reality...but in my mind he is already on that 8 man list of Canucks Dmen.
