Lalonde said he and Yzerman were on same page with decision to waive Vrana. Didn’t shed any light on reasons why but called it a tough decision because of his offensive ability. We’ll see if he’s claimed at 2.
Lalonde hopeful Bertuzzi, Zadina will return during Western trip Jan. 16-19. "They both look good. ... You can see in practice they’ve been fully involved. Hopefully sooner than later.”
Lalonde said Nedeljkovic will play tonight and one or both games this weekend for @griffinshockey. He might stay longer. It's maximum 14 days. "We haven’t given up on Ned. We want to see him get his game in order and re-evaluate it from there.”
Robby Fabbri on line with Suter, Sundqvist tonight. First game since 3/10, before 3rd ACL surgery. Lalonde: We’re excited getting him back in a lot of ways, power play one of them. 5 on 5, he plays with some jam. Proven player, part of our leadership group inside room.
Below, watch Lalonde and Michael Rasmussen after today's skate.
