Rochester Americans head coach Seth Appert spoke to the media following Wednesday’s practice and provided several injury updates.
Captain Michael Mersch is expected to miss two to four weeks with a lower-body injury.
Mersch has recorded 39 points in 46 games this season and is one point behind forward JJ Peterka for the team lead.
Forward’s Jack Quinn, Sean Malone and Ryan MacInnis are also still a “few weeks away” with lower-body injuries, Appert said.
The Amerks will try to snap their three-game losing skid on Friday night when they take on Syracuse Crunch at Upstate Medical University Arena. Face-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
