Hronek hasn't played for them yet this year. I'm not sure if he is hurt or because of the logjam on D that Kenny created. Hicketts was a healthy scrath for a few games to start the season last year but was a leader on the D after less than half of the season playing in all situations. Saarijarvi was sent to Toledo.
Nastasiuk was sent to Toledo. Blashill liked him a lot even playing him in the playoffs when he joined at the conclusion of his last jr season.
McCollum allowed 6 goals in just over half a game before being pulled.
Svechkin is also yet to play a game.
