Sceviour sustained an upper-body injury against the Capitals on Saturday, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports. Just over three minutes into his second game back from a head injury, Sceviour suffered another knock. Even when healthy, the winger's minutes have been limited, as he was averaging 12:06 of ice time prior to Saturday's early exit. If neither the 28-year-old nor Jared McCann (lower body) is available versus Montreal on Tuesday, Owen Tippett and Denis Malgin could both find themselves in the game-day lineup.
Sceviour (head) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's contest against the Penguins, Alain Poupart of NHL.com reports. Sceviour missed the team's tilt Tuesday because of the head injury, but the additional time was evidently enough for him to regain his bearings and rejoin the action. The winger has tallied two points through four contests this season, but it seems unlikely he will continue to rack up points consistently given his lack of ice time and absence from the power play.
Sceviour (head) is projected to miss Tuesday's clash with Philadelphia, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports. Sceviour will be sidelined for his first game after taking an elbow to the head toward the end of Saturday's matchup with Pittsburgh. The team has not provided a timeline for his return, but Owen Tippett will make his NHL debut in the winger's absence.
Sceviour was injured upon taking an elbow to his head late in the third period of Saturday's loss to the Penguins, the Sun-Sentinel reports. At this point, the severity of the injury is unclear, but if the Alberta native misses Tuesday's road game against the Flyers, we wouldn't be surprised to see Owen Tippett unleashed for his NHL debut.
Sceviour collected a second-period assist during Thursday's win over Arizona. The assist improved Sceviour to nine goals and 19 points for the campaign, which is respectable production, considering his depth role. However, the 27-year-old winger is unlikely to climb into a scoring role at any point in his career, and his long-term outlook remains unfavorable. Outside of cavernous settings, you're best off leaving Sceviour to the waiver wire.
