CLARKEY CHECKS IN THE WEEK TO UPDATE HIS INJURY NEWS

Captain David Clarke will undergo further checks this week on the injury which took him out of last Saturday's home game early in the third period.

X-rays showed no fractures after he clattered to the ice and then the boards. There has been a "slight" improvement over the past 24 hours but he still has a lot of pain. The medical team want him to rest for 48 hours and then they will re-assess what's going to happen and how long he may be on the sidelines.
