Unsettling and unexpected news from the Thunder: Veteran forward Jason Duda has been placed on 14-day IR with a back injury, the team said this afternoon. Duda battled a back problem much of last season. He considered surgery but instead settled for rehab in the off-season.
Defenseman Jordan Little and rookie forward Chris Trafford are expected to come off IR and play tonight.
D man Brett Beauchamp has been waived.
