For what it's worth, Swift Current and Prince George fans are saying Lightning defensive prospect Dane Crowley
left the October 10 Broncos-Cougars game with a shoulder injury. According to Crowley on a radio station in Swift Current, he'll be out 1-2 weeks.
For those keeping track, that's three shoulder injuries (that we know of) among Lightning prospects. Vladimir Mihalik
has a separated shoulder and should be back in less than 2 weeks, and Riku Helenius
has a dislocated shoulder and could be gone for much longer. The Lightning have not confirmed how long Helenius will be out, though the Ilves club says 4 months. There is still no word on the specific injury to Marek Bartanus
, but he's expected to play this weekend. We do know that Chris Lawrence
has missed recent games due to a "minor head injury." I'm not sure any injury to the head can be considered minor, but nevertheless that was the report.
