First procedure goes well for Craig Hartsburg, plus Subway Series invites

I was told today that Tips coach Craig Hartsburg’s preliminary procedure in preparation for his heart surgery went smoothly. Hartsburg underwent a heart catheterization Wednesday at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, during which a camera was inserted into his femoral artery in his leg and run up to his heart to get a closer look at his ascending aortic aneurysm. There were no surprises, and Hartsburg is back at home.

Despite the procedure, Hartsburg is remaining involved with the team. He watched Wednesday night’s game in Portland through the online video feed, and he met with the rest of the coaching staff this morning. He’s still set to return behind the bench next week and remain there until the main operation takes place in early November.

In other news, two Tips were named to Team WHL for the upcoming Subway Super Series against Team Russia. Everett goaltender Kent Simpson will suit up for both games, which take place Nov. 17 in Kamloops and Nov. 18 in Prince George. Defenseman Ryan Murray will participate in the game at Kamloops. Neither Simpson nor Murray should miss any of Everett’s games.

On the injury front, one of Everett’s walking wounded might return during this weekend’s road trip to Kelowna and Vancouver. Left wing Campbell Elynuik has nearly recovered from his upper-back strain and could get into action this weekend. Center Clayton Cumiskey (concussion), winger Markus McCrea (concussion) and defenseman Alex Theriau (groin) will not play this weekend, but all are expected back shortly.
