Injured on: 10/13
10/19 – Gallant would not commit to whether or not Engelland will be available for the game tomorrow against the Ducks. Engelland wore the standard jersey in practice on Wednesday and Friday but wore a no-contact jersey while skating on Thursday.
10/15 – “Deryk is is not playing tomorrow but he’ll be day-to-day after that.” -Gallant
10/14 – Sunday was an off-day for the team so there were no updates given.
10/13 – Engelland left the game in the 2nd period after his stick was tied up along the boards. He did not return to the bench at any time during the game and was described as “day-to-day” following the game.
Here's the play Deryk Engelland was hurt on. Very hard to tell what exactly happened. Gallant simply called him day-to-day. pic.twitter.com/FiVqR8itIP

Injury: Lower Body
Injured on: 9/30
10/19 – Tuch has skated every day since but has been ruled out for the Anaheim game on 10/20.
10/15 – Skated for first time since the injury following VGK practice. Gallant ruled him out for “the next couple games” and then said “we’ll see after that.”
10/14 – Tuch still has not skated since leaving the game on 9/30. Once he does, he’ll probably be at least another three days away from playing.
10/11 – He did not travel with the team to start the road trip and it’s possible he does not join them at all over the five-game span.
10/2 – Tuch was placed on the IR on 10/2 retroactive to 9/30. He is expected to miss at least a few more games, potentially the entire road trip. He was described as “closer to week-to-week than day-to-day” by George McPhee.
Tuch will miss the season-opening game. Gallant said he does not expect Tuch to be placed on IR, which means he remains eligible to play in the game on Saturday.
9/30 – Tuch left the final preseason game in the 2nd period and did not return. Multiple reports were that he took a puck to the foot/ankle. Gallant would not confirm anything aside from saying it was not a head injury from running into Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
Injury: Lower Body
Injured on: 10/8/18
10/15 – “Going to be longer than we thought, probably up to two months. Possibly.” -Gallant
10/10 – On Wednesday morning, Gallant ruled Stastny out for not only the game that night, but also for the remainder of the road trip. He described it only as a lower body injury but added that it’s “going to be out a little longer than we thought.”
10/9 Stastny was injured during the game in Buffalo. He did not skate with the team on the off-day in D.C. and was described as “questionable” to play in the game on 10/10.
Stastny kind of got rolled up on going after a rebound on his final shift of the game. He continued through the shift but lifted his left leg in pain after the play ended. Here's the play… pic.twitter.com/j71ulM31PS
