NHL Injury Update

-The Kings have placed Drew Doughty on IR. Doughty left Wednesday's game against the Hurricanes in the first period after suffering an apparent concussion. The Kings are officially calling Doughty's injury an upper-body injury. Doughty will be unavailable to play for L.A. this week, since a player on injured reserve is not allowed to return to action within seven days. The Kings have called up defenseman Jake Muzzin for the Manchester Monarachs while Doughty is recovering.

-Blues d-man Roman Polak is going to miss the Blues' next game. Polak has a laceration on his right wrist after his wrist was accidently cut by Sidney Crosby's skate in the second period of Saturday's game. Head coach Davis Payne confirmed that the Czech-born defenseman is out for Thursday's contest against Nashville and will officially be listed as day-to-day after that. St. Louis has not called up any new players, so it looks as if Tyson Strachan (a healthy scratch for six of the last seven games) will take Polak's place on the roster until he returns.
