Will Johnny Gaudreau miss his first game of the season?
News & notes from morning skate
Gaudreau and Erik Gudbranson did not participate in today's morning skate. Gaudreau missed yesterday's practice with an illness.
The Blue Jackets recalled defenseman Tim Berni from the AHL's Cleveland Monsters and assigned forward Brendan Gaunce.
Brad Larsen said he has some decisions to make regarding today's lineup. Liam Foudy and Billy Sweezey were both healthy scratches last game, so they will likely slot in if Gaudreau and Gudbranson don't play.
Liam Foudy and Billy Sweezey would seem to be the likely players to draw in tonight vs. Vegas if Gaudreau or Gudbranson cannot go. #CBJ— Jeff Svoboda (@JacketsInsider) November 28, 2022
Larsen said Daniil Tarasov will start in the net tonight.
Patrik Laine and Elvis Merzlikins both participated in morning skate today.
The team did not go through line rushes but did go through the power-play units.
