Jesse Winchester will be returning to the lineup for his first game of the regular season, after coming off a shoulder injury sustained at the beginning of training camp. Zenon Konopka and Brian Lee are the healthy scratches.
I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
