According to the Lightning, Everett Silvertips defenseman Dane Crowley will miss both of Everett's games this weekend due to injuries sustained from a blindside hit Tuesday night against Kamloops.
Nick Patterson of the Everett Herald reports Crowley received a facial cut and a concussion on a hit from Blazers defenseman Mike Gauthier. Patterson states there was no penalty called on the play, but "the Tips claim it was a hit to the head from behind and are weighing whether to send a video of the hit to the league for review."
Crowley has 7 goals and 5 assists for 12 points in 23 games for Everett this season.
Erik Erlendsson of the Trib reports that Bolt Prospects alumni Ryan Craig, who is recovering from a back injury, may be sent down to Norfolk of the AHL for a conditioning stint before returning to the lineup for the Lightning. Craig last played in the AHL during the 2005-2006 campaign when he scored 12 goals and 22 points in 28 games for the Springfield Falcons.
