Hey Paul and/or George, hoping one of you scholars can answer a question for me. On the sports app I have on my phone, Willie Coetzee is always listed on the injury report as being on the IR with an undisclosed injury. Do either of you know what it is? He’s been there all season, since like the 3rd preseason game. Thanks for any info you can provide!

Alzy, all I know is he will miss the whole season with a knee injury, not sure if listing him on injury report is a cap thing or just a paper move.

He was injured during camp.

You can’t send a player down while they’re injured so he remains on the Red Wings list.
