On Evander Kane: “He is more than day to day cause he hasn’t skated with us for awhile so we are trying to resolve a situation where we can get him going a little bit more…..He has a lower body ailment…..coming along slower than we anticipated, so he is not a player in the next few games, I don’t anticipate”
On Zach Bogosian: “Hasn’t skated for a week. He came down with a flu like thing, a little issue, a flu thing that kinda set him aside a bit. He is a little ways away, probably a couple of weeks away I believe. I think he was skating but he hasn’t in a week.”
On Paul Postma: “Has been skating but it is light, not contact related yet. He gets reassessed in the middle of January.”
On Jim Slater: “I believe longer than Postma, farther away”.
