Carcillo to miss a month with knee injury

The injury Dan Carcillo suffered yesterday against the Kings will have him out for a while.

Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports he’ll miss a month of action with a knee injury. It’s a tough break for Carcillo as he missed most of last season with a knee injury and yesterday’s game was his first one back since then.

Taking his place in the lineup will be rookie Brandon Saad. He was a scratch in yesterday’s game but his skill set is a bit different than Carcillo’s. Saad is a big kid (6’2″ 206) but he has some scoring touch as well and impressed coaches in his brief stay with the team last season. As Tracey Myers of makes note, it’s a big opportunity for the youngster to make a splash.

    Glad Saad will be getting the time, kid has serious potential.

    could not have happen to a better piece of garbage. I personally hope he breaks his neck and dies.
