Radek Faksa Day to Day with Upper Body Injury
The update has arrived, and it's every bit as vague as you were hoping it would be.
As we send Tom Hanks to go rescue Esa Lindell and Ales Hemsky before we have no one left to wait for, Radek Faksa's injury status has been updated by the Czech team, and it sounds like he is "day to day" with, you guessed it, an upper body injury.

In case you didn't get all that, here are some translation efforts that are undoubtedly going to be better than mine:
Czech coach on Radek Faksa injury (via google translate): "He had trouble in the upper body. Let's see if he's ready for the next match."— Mark Stepneski (@StarsInsideEdge) September 18, 2016
"Radek Faksa had problems in the upper body, We finished at eleven attackers. We'll see how it will be." https://t.co/3Xii3wfM5f— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) September 18, 2016
Update on Radek Faksa: Upper body injury - considered day-to-day #WCH2016 #Faksa #CANCZE— Petr Dufek (@NHLPete) September 18, 2016
So, there you go. Two Dallas Stars centers down, neither of them projected to miss a significant amount of time. Considering how much the World Cup affects most NHL fans, maybe minor (we hope) injuries are actually a best-case scenario. Wait, no, that is ridiculous. No injuries are the best-case scenario.
