Update: Multiple sources tell me Setoguchi missed a meeting this morning.
Devin Setoguchi is a healthy scratch tonight against his former team, the San Jose Sharks, but it's clear it's not because of play. He's been back two games and was buzzing with nine shots and one assist.
This is also a team missing top-6 forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Guillaume Latendresse.,
It appears to be a disciplinary decision by coach Mike Yeo. GM Chuck Fletcher said he's not been traded or anything like that.
"I'd prefer to have Mike address it after the game so we have one voice, but I fully support what he's doing. Absolutely," GM Chuck Fletcher said.
I've got my ideas, but we'll see what Yeo says.
We'll talk to Yeo postgame, but the coach is clearly holding Setoguchi accountable for something.
