Not too surprising. Henry will be put on IR to start the season and Poile & Co. will evaluate whether we can go with our current group of smaller, speedy puck moving defensemen or whether we will activate Henry when he is ready and send someone (Klein or Lehtonen/Zanon) down to Milwaukee.
My gut feeling says that Klein and Zanon will both be sent to Milwaukee and Klein will get the first recall with Zanon or Yonkman next (depending on our need for a big body at that time).
According to NHL.com's scoresheet...looks like Zidlicky, Legwand, Tootoo, Arnott, Sullivan, and Timonen are all scratched tonight. Yonkman is not playing either as he has been sent down to Milwaukee. Mason is in net.
