Prior to puck drop in Philadelphia Jets bench boss Paul Maurice held a media availability where he was asked about the status of Adam Lowry and Mathieu Perreault.
Lowry left a game against the Hawks on January 19th and was expected to miss at least a month and Perreault left a game against the Bruins on the 31st and was labeled out with an upper-body injury with the expectation he would miss two weeks.
With the Jets acquisition of Cody Eakin last night Paul Maurice was asked if this will allow him to move Lowry to the wing:
“He’s still aways away. When he comes back though he’ll be at 100%. We’re not going put him in at 75. There’s less pressure now with Cody here. We’ll hopefully get him back to speed. But he’s been off a long time. He and Matty Perreault have missed some time.”.
Asked specifically for updates on the two Jets bench boss added:
“Progressing, working hard. They’re not on the trip so that tells you where they’re at. The positive is it is upper-body injuries which means they can skate. I don’t know how much they enjoy it but they’ll be in good shape when they come back.”
