Carey Price (G, NHL) has been reactivated, returning to action on Friday night after a lower-body injury sustained a in a game against Edmonton keep him out of lineup for three weeks.

Alexei Emelin (D, NHL) has missed the last three games with a lower body injury sustained against Pittsburgh on November 11th, although it is related to a problem that was bothering him for a while now (as reported by Renaud Lavoie). He is expected to miss games through the week-end and will be re-evaluated afterwards.

Torrey Mitchell (C, NHL) suffered a lower-body injury against the Coyotes on November 19th when he fell to the ice awkwardly. He has been added to the injury reserve.

Michael Bournival (LW, NHL) continues to skate on his own as he recovers from post-concussion symptoms that have kept him out of action all year. He is still wearing a tinted visor, which is a typical indicator of an early recovery phase.

Zack Kassian (RW, NHL) suffered a broken foot and nose in an early morning accident on October 4th, and subsequently entered the NHL/NHLPA Substance Abuse and Behavioural Health Program. As a result he was suspended by the Montreal Canadiens and the duration of his leave from the team is undetermined.

Nikita Scherbak (RW, AHL) returned from injury on November 13th after missing six games, only to be crushed by a massive hit that put him right back on the shelf. The nature of his injury has not been revealed, but head coach Sylvain Lefebvre is suggesting that Scherbak might be out for quite a while.

Markus Eisenschmid (C, AHL) was injured on November 13th after taking a hard hit in the first period, similar to Nikita Scherbak. He has missed two games thus far, and is not expected to return this week-end according to initial comments from Lefebvre.

Ryan Johnston (D, AHL) has not played since the Red vs. White scrimmage on September 20th. He had back surgery and is out indefinitely. The average recovery time for his surgery (discectomy surgery on L5-S1 herniation) before physical exertion can begin is about four months.

Jacob de la Rose (LW, AHL) has missed the last three games for the IceCaps after being injured on November 7th.

Connor Crisp (LW, AHL) has missed the last seven games for the IceCaps after being injured on October 30th.

Daniel Audette (C, QMJHL) suffered a separated shoulder on October 29th and will be out of action for about four weeks. He has missed six games for Sherbrooke so far.
