Sharks Coach Todd McLellan didn’t go the "lower body" route on Lukowich’s injury suffered sometime in the middle of the second period. It’s a groin problem, McLellan said, and while it will keep him out of the lineup against Edmonton, the prognosis is he should be ready to go when the Sharks play Anaheim on Thursday night.

Cheechoo continues to rehab his upper body injury, the earlier one he aggravated against Dallas a week ago. While he hasn’t practice yet with the team, Cheechoo has skated on his own. Mostly though, he’s working on leg and lung maintenance while idled.

And it continues to be likely that he’ll miss at least as many games this time as the four he did when he was first hurt against St. Louis on Nov. 6. In fact, Cheechoo could be on the sidelines this entire homestand.

Luowich's groin means Semenov will be in against the Oil. React to that information however you deem fit.

Cheechoo's current situation is the one that gets me worried. He's been injury-plagued the last two years, and since opening night (where he scored twice) has been fairly invisible. The Cheechoo Train has effectively been derailed.

The former Rocket Richard winner is a player who has a knack for finding the soft spot in the slot and capitalizing on one-timers. He's not going to create scoring opportunities with his skating ability. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, his production has suffered immensely due to the fact that he's been relegated to third line duties. No Joe Thornton and no Joe Pavelski equals limited production from our beloved sniper. Coupled with injury woes, a rise to top-six minutes seems highly unlikely.

His $3.00 million/year salary will light fire to trade rumors once we hit the new year. Watch this one closely folks.
