Auston Matthews (undisclosed) will accompany the team on the road after sitting out the past two games due to a minor injury. ”He's feeling good. He had a really good skate today," coach Sheldon Keefe said on Tuesday. "Like I said the other day, we think this was a pretty minor situation, that he was going to push through pretty quickly. We just have to make sure that we are putting him in a good spot at the appropriate time. It's a new injury for him, something that he hasn't dealt with before, so we want to make sure he's feeling good and comfortable before he gets back in." Matthews is slated to skate again on Wednesday prior to traveling the team. It's unclear at this time if he will play on Thursday against Tampa Bay.
