Nothing specific on the injury (the usual "upper body" business), but Blake does have his left arm in a sling and mentioned having shoulder surgery before. I'm sure if he needed to go under the knife he would have already, so there's no need to worry about this ending up there.
[UPDATE] An email from AHL broadcaster Eric Lindquist tipped us off on this one, and expect to see it on WTC (it's there now) as the day progresses. Both Couture and Ferriero were sent to Worcester, so it leads us to believe that one of Mitchell, Vesce (H/T cerise) or Setoguchi is ready to return to action. On a side note, it seems that McGinn has impressed more than just Plank and I in his recent NHL stint, as he'll be staying up while Ferriero is sent to the AHL for the first time this year.
No word on the length of the injury.
Discuss here in the game thread.[Update]: More of the same from David Pollak of Working The Corners. H/T to Section223 for the heads up.

Joslin, 22, is tied for second in scoring among Worcester defensemen with five points (0-5=5) in ten games, along with six penalty minutes.
He appeared in two games with San Jose this season, posting two penalty minutes and a +2 rating.
The six-foot-one, 210-pound native of Richmond, Ontario was originally selected by San Jose in the fifth round (149th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. [Update]: Dave Pollak back with more, and it looks like Callahan is up as well. Do they roll with seven D tonight and bench Staubitz? McLellan was evasive.
