The Worcester Sharks of the AHL have  a lot of players out with injuries right now.  Off the top of my head: Tim Kennedy is likely to be out for some time.  Curt Gogol is still recovering from an ugly hit that resulted in a suspension many have deemed inadequate.  I didn't see it but I'll believe the reports.  Brandon Mashinter did not play in the last game, and a minor injury was mentioned.  Defenseman Sena Acolatse was also absent for the last game due to an injury.  Bracken Kearns, who did finish the game Sunday, was absent for a bit of that game getting his hand repaired after a fight.  So that could be not actually okay.  I know I missed someone in there, but the gist of it is that the Sharks' AHL team has all kinds of players missing right now.  NHL training camp can only shorten their bench.
