ALBANY, NY – Defensemen Brandon Burlon and Vojtech Mozik and forward Blake Pietila will miss Wednesday’s contest against the St. John’s IceCaps. All three players missed practice Tuesday. Burlon was ill, Mozik has an upper-body injury and Pietila is out with a lower-body ailment.
Mozik and Pietila both attempted to skate Tuesday, but did not last long. Their status for the weekend is still in doubt.
Kowalsky on Mozik: “He got hurt kind of in practice early on last week. He tried to go on the ice Friday. It didn’t work and we pulled back on him. Then at the start of practice today, he went out, but didn’t feel good again. It’s going to take some time I guess.”
Pietila’s Status: “I think it was a hit, lower body. He finished the game [on Sunday]. He was pretty sore yesterday, but we thought he was good to go today. Another guy who went on the ice and came off. He’s not available tomorrow.”
