Nik Antropov: Upper Body Injury Staff

Update: Antropov is dealing with an upper-body injury, which has put his availability for Saturday's season opener in question, the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Recommendation: Antropov was on the ice for an informal skate Saturday, but the upper-body ailment forced him to miss Sunday's practice. Jets head coach Claude Noel is hopeful that Antropov will be ready for the start of the season, but the team will keep a close eye on the center throughout the week before making a decision on his availability.
