Upshall (undisclosed) is probable for Saturday's matchup versus the Wild, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports. Barring a setback, Upshall should be able to suit up for Saturday night's home contest, working on the right wing with David Backes down the middle and opposite Steve Ott.
Upshall (undisclosed) will get in a full practice Friday and return to game ice Saturday against the Wild, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. While Upshall remains out, look for Ty Rattie to fill in at right wing, presumably in a top-six role Thursday night against the visiting Ducks.
Upshall is not on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Upshall sat out of Saturday's game against the Islanders with an illness, but played 15:56 Tuesday night against the Lightning. It's unclear as to why he missed practice on Wednesday, but this shouldn't impact his status moving forward.
Upshall (illness) reported feeling better Monday, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports. Upshall was able to return to practice Monday as well, so it appears the illness that forced him out of Saturday's tilt is mostly behind him. The club hasn't given any official word on his availability yet, but it looks as though he should be able to play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Upshall did not play Saturday against the Islanders due to illness. Upshall was a late scratch, so late in fact that head coach Ken Hitchcock did not know about it until 6:00pm and had little time to prepare.
