Morning Free Associations: Injury News and Transactions

Just four games into his return from a hand injury, Kevan Miller was knocked out of the game in Toronto with an injury to his throat. Miller spent the night in the hospital and was diagnosed with a non-life threatening injury to his larynx which was confirmed upon his return to Boston. The injury is to his laryngeal cartilage and he will be re-evaluated in five weeks.

I guess we should be glad that Don Sweeney invested in defense this offseason, huh?

Jake DeBrusk, who took a puck to his head on Monday night, seems to be fine. He said he felt fine after having the day off.

Brandon Carlo practiced with his teammates for the first time since he was knocked out of a game against the Maple Leafs (seriously Leafs, stop fucking knocking our guys out of games) on November 10th. Bruce Cassidy wouldn’t commit to Carlo returning tonight, saying instead that it’s a possibility. Please come back tonight, Brando Carlrissian!

In an effort to increase scoring, Ryan Donato was recalled from Providence. Since he’s been lighting the lamp and improving his 200 foot game down at the Dunk (Which will always be the Providence Civic Center to me), it’s a good time to see what he can do for the big club which needs both defensive responsibility and goals.

Jan Kovar was spotted practicing with the Boston Bruins after being released from his PTO with Providence. He has no contract and may not get one but they want to have a look.

Remember, tonight Rick “Nifty” Middleton’s number will be returned prior to the game at 6:30. A fun fact before we go:

Now I want to sign off everywhere with Be Nifty, Stay Shifty.

Hmmm perhaps Gritty is stealing children to form a Gritty army and take over the world and rename it Planet Gritty.

I pledge allegiance to the Gritty of the United States of Gritty, and to the Gritty for which it stands, one Nation under Gritty, indivisible, with liberty and justice for Gritty.

Hi Pals!!!
Two great days on the Shepaug River!!!! I know every wave on the river and have been surfing my brains out! (Okay, didn’t take long…) I wonder does Jack Edwards do whitewater?? The “cuts into the eddy of the flow” thing.. I think of it when i cut into small, boiling eddies in our rivers. There is something about sitting in the middle of the action, but being insulated from it in a space of your own. Okay, getting too deep? Not for B2B!!!!!
Okay, who will be in the lineup tonight? Throw ALL the player’s (where the hell is Rick Nash?) names in a hat and pull out the lineup!!!!!
Monday night at the Stripes – #@%&(+-\% (me groaning as i get up) Jo – “where are you going?” Me – i need to bring more wood in and load the stove. . Jo – “You need to rest so you can paddle tomorrow! STAY HERE! !!!” – proceeds to go get wood and load stove. She’s a keeper! !! I need to make her a special dinner tonight as she won’t get in til game time..

I wonder does Jack Edwards do whitewater?

He loves his skiing doesn’t he so it’s got to be a possibility

(where the hell is Rick Nash?)

As of early last month, he was still struggling with post-concussion issues:
