Still no word for a defensive call-up, and the closer we get to the opening face-off in Phoenix tonight, the more likely the Preds will be taking the ice with only six healthy defensemen on the roster.
There are reports that The Cube’s injury isn’t thought to be long term (that’s a relief, because it didn’t look that great), and he may be playing by the end of the week! So, families of Laakso and Johnson….if you’re reading this….sorry to get your hopes up.
But things change. We’ll see what the Preds elect to do after tonight.
