Stephen Gionta RW NJ 15 Days
Stephen Gionta re-injured his ankle in the first period Saturday.
He tried to play a few more shifts but was forced to leave the game later in the first stanza. "I don't know what the course of action is going to be," Gionta said. "It's a little frustrating. I keep tweaking it." Gionta has only two assists in 21 games with a minus-five rating so you don't need to know a lot more as he has no fantasy value.

Stephen Gionta sat out Monday's game after suffering an ankle injury on Friday.
Gionta went feet first into the boards Friday in Toronto and was not healthy enough to play on Sunday. He has one measly assist in 16 games this season with a minus-five rating so he is not worth having even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

"It was a fun tournament and, obviously, it helps coming home with something," Gionta said Wednesday. "The ultimate goal is the make the (NHL) playoffs and play in that, but to go over and represent USA and come home with the first medal since '04 was pretty cool and definitely something that I enjoyed." The two of them played with Tampa Bay's Nate Thompson in the tournament. Gionta had three goals in 10 contests, while Carter had a goal and an assist in 10 games.
