Ryan O'Byrne will be a healthy scratch for Thursday's road match-up against Minnesota.
Coach Joe Sacco gave his reasoning behind the decision by saying, "He wasn't up to his best (against Edmonton). He struggled. He gives you everything he has, but sometimes you have to make a change that you think gives you the best chance to win and his play has dropped. It wasn't just the one game, it's been a few games. He's taken some bad penalties too at times. I talked to him about that and he knows that. When he gets back in the lineup, I expect him to be better for it." Greg Zanon will replace him in the lineup.
