Union defenseman Stuart hopes to return Friday
Union senior defenseman Shawn Stuart is hoping he can be in the lineup for Friday's ECAC Hockey showdown with 10th-ranked Yale at Messa Rink.
Stuart is recovering from his second injury in a month. He sprained his ankle in last Friday's 2-1 loss to Clarkson and missed the game against St. Lawrence the next night.
Stuart missed four games after suffering a shoulder injury Jan. 12 against Quinnipiac.
"It's more day-to-day with this one," Stuart said after practice Wednesday night at Messa Rink. "It depends on how it feels, and how it feels in the skate. Once I can get it in the skate, we'll see how it goes."
Stuart practiced briefly Wednesday.
