Jay McKee is out for two-to-four weeks.
Head coach Dan Bylsma announced after practice Wednesday that defenseman Jay McKee will be sidelined the next two-to-four weeks with a finger infection.
"Jay McKee has an infection in his finger and he needed to get that cleaned up and it’s going to be two-to-four weeks," Bylsma said.
It's now official.
Mark Eaton is the only healthy defenseman that played in the home opener.
We have entered bizarro world.
There is some good news, however:
"Brooks is progressing along, but not ready for (Thursday) night we think," Bylsma said. "Both Brooks and Gonchar are moving along in the right direction, so hopefully we get one of those guys back for (Thursday’s) game. It’s possible and we can call someone up if need be."
