It appears that Kyle Okposo will be scratched tonight. It is the first time in his career he is a healthy scratch.
In 2008-09, he missed 13 games with an arm injury and 4 games with a groin injury
In 2009-10, he missed 1 game with H1N1 and another with an upper body injury
Okposo missed the first 44 games last season with a shoulder injury, but has played every game since.
