Hitchcock says every injured player will play in the first round

Are you worried about all of the injuries on the St. Louis roster? Maybe you shouldn’t be. While it’s unclear who will return and when, it’s pretty interesting seeing Hitchcock make such a bold statement. It’s a telling comment, but it leaves him a bit of wiggle room.


Yes, that means everyone. In case you’ve forgotten the list of injured skaters, here’s who will allegedly be returning against Chicago at some point during the series: Vladimir Tarasenko, Vladimir Sobotka, David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Derek Roy, Patrik Berglund and Brenden Morrow.
