Boston College Hockey Injury Update: Straight Set To Return, MacLeod Out

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

An update on Destry Straight and Isaac MacLeod as the Eagles head into the winter break

"The Kid" - the mysterious high schooler who has made a reputation for breaking accurate news on his BC hockey blog and on Twitter, has an update on two injured Eagles:

In what comes as a bit of a surprise, he reports that Destry Straight is expected to be in the lineup in Minnesota barring any setbacks between now and then. Straight has been out since Nov. 11 when he suffered a high ankle sprain against BU.

Isaac MacLeod, who left the Providence game during the first period and re-emerged in the stands wearing a sling, is expected to be out "for a few weeks," having apparently suffered a strained shoulder. The Kid says he's between questionable and probable for Minnesota, which means freshman defenseman Travis Jeke could be thrust into service for the first time. (It also means BC is likely to be playing with four freshman defensemen. Yikes!)

Straight's potential return is particularly important as with Johnny Gaudreau likely heading off to Russia with the USA world junior team, Straight will be able to slot in to the top 6 and prevent too much line disruption.

We will have more discussion of this and other BC hockey topics in the weekly hockey banter, appearing tomorrow on BC Interruption. Together, we can all get through the three week hockey layoff. Maybe.
