Julien: Fernandez to ”miss a few games”

Coach Claude Julien said that goalie Manny Fernandez is experiencing some ”general soreness” and is likely to miss a few games.

In keeping with the club’s secretive policy about injuries, Julien did not divulge any further information, or the specific nature of the ”soreness”.

It is widely believed–though not confirmed–that Fernandez in recent weeks has experienced a recurrence of his back issues, which initially flared up last season.

Tuukka Rask, called up on an emergency basis, will remain with the club during the veteran goalie’s ”general soreness.”
