This happens at the end of a season when playoffs are off the table, but it is still a lengthy #CBJ walking wounded list including Jenner, Werenski, Laine, Kuraly, Texier, Korpisalo, Boqvist, Blankenburg, and Tarasov, all out tonight (and probably tomorrow).— Jeff Svoboda (@JacketsInsider) April 28, 2022
