Jesse Winchester is all ready to play, finally, after missing more than three months with a concussion.
But it’s unlikely he’ll see action anytime soon. It’s just not fair to throw him into the heat of the playoff race when he’s missed so much time, said coach Paul MacLean.
“You have to make sure he’s ready,” said MacLean.
“If he’s not, it could be a setback for him, and you don’t want that. Everything has gone good for him, but he hasn’t played since December.
“That’s a long time and you have to make sure he’s ready to go and it’s the right thing for the team.”
As expected, Craig Anderson will be in goal against the Flyers.
