Mike Mottau update

 Mike Mottau, who stayed overnight in an Atlanta hospital again last night, will be evaluated by a specialist again this morning according to his agent Jerry Buckley.

Buckley said doctors are still trying to relieve the swelling and pressure in his right eye. The concern over the latter issue is the reason he has not flown back to New York yet.

Mottau, 32, suffered the injury during the first period of Sunday's 2-1 OT loss to Atlanta when struck by Zach Bogosian's shot with 3:48 to play.

****

With Mottau's absence, expect Bridgeport defenseman and top prospect Travis Hamonic to be recalled on an emergency basis for practice at 10:30 today.

Hamonic, 20, has two goals and five assists in 19 games for the Sound Tigers this season.
