Hockey: Serville day-to-day, Bennett out 2 weeks, Clare out this weekend

The hits (no pun intended) just keep on coming for this hockey team.

The following is all per @MichiganHockey on twitter-

After taking a hit head first into the boards, Serville will be out this weekend. His status is "day-to-day".

Mac Bennett will be out a "couple of weeks"

Kevin Clare will not play this weekend in the home series against alaska.

And Jacob Trouba will not play this weekend either. Red wants to give him a rest.

So that is 4 defenders out. Great. Wonderful. Someone get me a scotch. 

EDIT: Trouba is not out this weekend.

Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God is bored and has found a new pursuit for the winter. He is now Angry Michigan Defenseman Hating God. Lest ye never forget the fallen. We need to make an appropriate sacrifice to the Gods.

Jeff Rohrkemper will step in on defense. Not in order of pairings we will have active on D; Merrill, Chiasson, Szuma, Moffie, and Rohrkemper. Unless they move a second forward we will skate 5 D this weekend.

Trouba is not out for the weekend, Trouba was out for practice yesterday for rest. Not the whole weekend. If they were going to rest him for a game, it would have been against BGSU which was about 5 minutes after getting off his plane from NYC. 

Serville is also not ruled out for the weekend yet.  He was out of practice yesterday, but might be able to start skating again as soon as today.

EDIT:  I don't think Serville will be ready to go for this weekend, but he hasn't been ruled out yet.  The only two D-men definitely scratched are Bennett and Clare.

EDIT 2:  And just to clarify, the reason Clare is out and has been out is a nerve thing in his shoulder he suffered several weeks ago.  He played in the GLI, but was pretty obviously not 100% and likely aggravated it further then.

Yeah, was gonna say, that one about Trouba being out this weekend was not on my Twitter account as far as I can see.  I retweeted Matt Slovin's tweet about Red giving him a day off of practice. Perhaps the OP misread.

I'm not sure if this is the guy who messed up his knee during the BGSU game but hope he recovers fast! BTW was it his head or knee? I saw him grabbing his knee when he hit the ice.

will force someone to actually try at playing defense this weekend. Just a thought. Don't leave 2 defenders un-checked in front of our goalie please
