Which NHL players are on the mend?
With the regular season set to begin Monday night, NHL teams are beginning to get back into the swing of things.
The NHL Players’ Association (NPA) released a list of its players who are still playing hockey after the season.
The list includes a few players who were injured or out of action.
Among those are two players who have returned to play in games.
These players are Tyler Seguin and Cody Franson.
Segui has played in all 82 games this season.
Franson has played 82 games and is on pace to score 31 goals this season and has registered six points.
He is on track to play every game this season, but has missed two games with an upper-body injury.
The last time he missed a game was November 17, when he sat out with an illness.
The next time he plays is February 8 when he is expected to return to the lineup.
Sequi’s absence could be a major blow for the Sharks, who have been battling injuries at center and wing.
Severson has been the primary center in the Sharks lineup since the team traded for Nick Bonino in June.
Bonino, who has missed four games this year with an ankle injury, is expected back for Monday’s game.
The Sharks have won five of their last six games and are now 7-4-2 with Severson on the roster.
Seychelles, who signed a two-year contract with the Sharks on March 1, has started all seven games.
He has two goals and four assists.
He’s on pace for 15 goals and 23 assists in 82 games.
