BREAKING: Kris Versteeg Injured, Out Three Weeks
Kris Versteeg will miss the first three weeks of the season due to a lower-body injury sustained yesterday during practice.
As it stands now, Coach Quenneville is not sure whether Versteeg will be placed on long-term injured reserve. It is also unclear who will fill in, but it is unlikely that Teuvo Teräväinen will be called up for the Hawks season opener tomorrow night against the Dallas Stars.
