Griffins add Finnish League defensemen Libor Sulak

Ansar Khan reports the Grand Rapids Griffins have added Libor Sulak from Finland to their blue line. This is interesting because, as Khan explains, this move is made in preparation of an expected call-up by the Detroit Red Wings in lieu of Mike Green’s injury.

Winnipeg Jets winger Patrik Laine could miss up to two weeks with bruised leg

Patrik Laine and the beard he rode in on were both hurt Tuesday while blocking a shot against the LA Kings. This sucks, because if you listened to the podcast this week, we talked about how we all felt that the Jets of all teams were a fun one to watch this season. Hopefully the docs are only saying up to two weeks because that is what is necessary, and not because that in the remaining length of the regular season.
