Given last nights Period 3 panic, I know we all felt, when Merzlikins was led off the ice injured, I figured a full IR list update was due. Currently, and thankfully, Merzlikins is listed as “day to day”, due to his arm injury.
Zach Werenski, who has missed the last two games, since only playing one post IR just days ago, is also “day-by-day” with his lower body injury. This is the same which put him on the IR list before.
Lastly, David Savard, is also “day-to-day”. This is due to an uncited illness, but it is reported through several outlets that it is not Covid.
We wish all these players a speedy and quick return to the ice. With each player being currently listed as “day-to-day” it gives hope this could happen. A goaltender and two defensemen would be great to have back before Tuesday and Thursdays showdown in Nationwide arena, against the Chicago Blackhawks. If any conditions change, and if any of these men are activated, for said games, we’ll let you know!
