Coleman Cleared To Play

Mike Mastovich of the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat reports that goaltender Gerald Coleman has been cleared to play and will join a goaltending triad that includes himself, Morgan Cey and recently acquired Ryan Munce. Coleman has been slowed by a groin injury suffered two months ago and his only game action came in a brief appearance in Augusta on the Chiefs' recent southern road trip in which the former London goaltender was reinjured.

Helenius recovering

I talked yesterday with doctor (M.D) of Team Ilves about Riku Helenius. He said, that Riku´s healing is in schedule. Riku has no-contact "order", but he is practicing at ice. I understand, what doctor said, that Riku is skating, but nothing more. They will evaluate Riku´s permission to play in late February. So Riku might get in action early March. Sadly I know, that Riku will play in Ilves Jr. team rest of the season, because men´s team has already two goalies. We will hope, that Tuukka Rask is heading to Boston next summer and Riku might get a chance to be No. 1 goalie in Team Ilves in next season.

Helenius Done for the Season

According to the Tampa Tribune, 2006 1st round pick Riku Helenius is done for the year after undergoing shoulder surgery. Also, contrary to previous speculation, Andy Rogers has been diagnosed with a hip injury drawing the ire of Lightning management.

Art Femenella day to day

According to the training staff at the University of Vermont, defensemen Art Femenella is listed as day to day. The specifics of the injury were undisclosed.

Femenella is practicing with the team but is not supposed to play in Saturdays game against Merrimack.

The senior has missed the last two games due to the injury.

Lascek Out With the Flu

According to the Johnstown Tribune Democrat, Stanislav Lascek missed last night's game against the Charlotte Checkers because of a case of the flu. This is the second time in the span of a couple of weeks Johnstown has been without their most dynamic playmaker due to illness.
