Hamrlik has lower-body injury

Roman Hamrlik was considered a healthy scratch before Thursday’s game, but the 37-year-old defenseman was not on the ice for Friday’s practice and Hunter revealed that Hamrlik was bothered by a lower-body injury.

“He’s just day-to-day. It’s nothing serious,” Hunter said. “Just give him a day off today and we’ll see about it.”

Hunter said he wasn’t sure if Hamrlik would play Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators or even take part in the morning skate.
