DENVER -- Dave Bolland will sit out Monday's game against the Colorado Avalanche. Ryan Potulny was recalled to take his place in the lineup.
Coach Joel Quenneville said Bolland is day-to-day with an upper-body injury suffered against the San Jose Sharks Saturday. Bolland did finish the game and the injury is not believed to be serious.
Bolland sat out practice with what was called a maintenance day before the Hawks left for San Jose. He said he was fine before playing the Sharks and that his day off had little do with the surgery he had before last to repair a herniated disc.
"Everything is fine," Bolland said at the time. "I played a lot of minutes last game. . . . Everybody has bumps and bruises through the whole year. It's always good to get them healed."
Potulny flew into Denver Monday morning and missed the Hawks morning skate. He skated on his own.
In other injury news, it's possible that Marian Hossa and Fernando Pisani could skate as soon as Monday. Patrick Kane is also close to returning to skating, Quenneville said.
