Injuries and a family matter took three front-line players out of the practice equation for the University of Wisconsin men's hockey team Tuesday.

Junior left winger Jordy Murray (arm) and freshman defenseman Joe Faust (shoulder) wore blue no-contact jerseys. UW coach Mike Eaves said Murray will be available for a WCHA series Friday and Saturday at Michigan Tech, while Faust is questionable.

Meanwhile, freshman defenseman Frankie Simonelli was absent due to a death in the family, but will be available to play at Tech.

The absence of Murray prompted Eaves to bump senior left winger Patrick Johnson up to the No. 1 line with sophomore center Craig Smith and freshman right winger Mark Zengerle. Eaves said Johnson responded with one of his best practices and suggested that he might take a look at that combination at Tech.
