Martinez (finger) could miss more than one week.
Martinez skated for the second straight day on Thursday, but it sounds like he will be out longer than his original timetable of one week. He underwent a procedure that included some work done on his nailbed and head coach Darryl Sutter said “They nearly cut his finger off. I don’t think I could play in a week.” Sutter is worried the finger could become infected and doesn’t want Martinez to miss even more time. He remains day-to-day, but it sounds like he’ll be out longer than original expected.
