Kobasew suffered the injury early in a 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday. The veteran wing has two goals in 12 games this season.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
