INJURIES PILING UP FOR THE NORTH STARS

 

With such a important part of the schedule for the North Stars playing some elite talented teams and at a time of year that the North Stars are in a race for the division and conference title.  Despite the team having suffered multiple injuries to key players, the North Stars have been on a good run of late, going 6-2-2 over their last 10 games, including a win and a tie over the division rival Colorado Rockies.  With so many important games in the next  week, the North Stars will be without a 3rd of defence core with key injuries to David Shaw and JJ Daigneault, and the most recent player to join the press box with a injury, Daniel Alfredsson.  GM Glenn Merkir was able to acquire Ric Nattress at the trade deadline and that move could be one of the most important deals to date with the injuries the team has suffered on defence.  Big minutes will be required from some players that are not used to those kind of minutes and coach Butch Goring will have to be inventive with his lines to keep this current streak above and on top of the Campbell Conference.
