RPI injury list grows
Add junior winger-center Marty O'Grady and sophomore center Brock Higgs to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's injury list, although it's hopeful that Higgs will play this weekend at Ferris State.
Higgs blocked a shot during today's practice and has a spint on the index finger of his right hand. He shoots lefthanded.
"I don't think it will affect him as much as it would some other skilled players," RPI coach Seth Appert said.
O'Grady is out for this weekend with an undisclosed injury.
Junior right winger Greg Burgdoerfer is skating in practice without contact, remains out for this week and doubtful for next week's game at Notre Dame.
Freshman winger Mark McGowan has yet to play because of a back injury. He could play this weekend.
Junior goalie Bryce Merriam had a sore knee in preseason and freshman right winger Ryan Haggerty also nursed a tender knee but missed no action.
The 1-1-0 Engineers fly out Thursday morning to meet a Ferris State team that beat St. Lawrence twice last week.
