Wiercioch Cleared to Play

New, comment

Denver defenseman Patrick Wiercioch left Saturday's game against Colorado College in the first period with what looked like a pretty serious knee injury, but the word out of Denver today is that he has been cleared to practice and will likely be available to Denver this Friday against Minnesota-Duluth.

The injury was to his left knee, which was not the same knee that he injured earlier this year against Alaska-Anchorage. Regardless, Wiercioch will only skate in Friday's night game against UMD, before taking off for Saskatchewan for Canada's World Juniors tryout camp.
