Craig Rivet's Throat Contusion Limits Practice Time

While Rivet was sitting out for most of the preseason already, Rivet gets another two days rest after suffering a mysterious throat contusion at some point before Friday. 

Lindy had this to say about the situation:

"We don't really know exactly how it happened," Ruff said following this morning's pregame skate for tonight's exhibition opener against Toronto in HSBC Arena. "The throat started to swell up, he saw a specialist [Friday] night and they said two days of rest before he starts exercising again."

This shouldn't affect Rivet's status for opening night but it is something to keep an eye on. If it gets worse, there may be an issue.
