Defenceman Olli Juolevi, meanwhile, is expected to be recalled from the taxi squad to dress tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
There’s no word yet on what happened to Tyler Motte, or the extent of his injury, but he seemed to be in some discomfort after a failed collision with William Nylander Saturday against the Leafs.
Bit of the Höglander collision with Muzzin, and Tyler Motte possibly hurt after getting tangled up with Nylander.
