What's this about?
He had been practicing with the team though...for maybe, the last week or so.

Per Moulson's Twitter, the Isles went right to Anaheim from Raleigh last night. Me thinks that they brought Nabby, Nilsson, and Rick to Raleigh with the belief that Rick would be ready to go by Friday and backup Nabby in California. Activate Rick today and Nilsson would just fly back to Bridgeport from Raleigh. That's pretty likely.

As to what happened to Rick...lord only knows. I think one of two things are possible...

1. Rick practiced yesterday and the team felt he actually may not be ready to go by Friday and felt Nilsson should go to California instead and just send Rick home and have him ready to backup Nabby at home against Detroit.

2. Rick reinjured his groin in practice.

I think 2 is more likely the case. That, or, it's his knee again. Or perhaps it's been his knee all along and the Isles are calling it a groin???
