Tuesday Night Additions
Tuesday was a rough night for fantasy owners of the following players:
Joffrey Lupul, Toronto Maple Leafs – Upper Body Injury – Day-to-Day
Lupul left the game after taking a hit from Boston's David Krejci. Lupul is out with a separated shoulder, sidelined 3-4 weeks.
Jakub Voracek, Philadelphia Flyers – Upper Body Injury – Day-to-Day
Voracek is the latest victim of a massive hit from Detroit's Niklas Kronwall. Another possible concussion
Jaromir Jagr, Philadelphia Flyers – Hip – Day-to-Day
The Flyers are riddled with injuries and Jagr joins the limping wounded with a hip injury
Matt Duchene, Colorado Avalanche – Ankle – Day-to-Day
Duchene got tangled up with Kyle Palmieri of the Minnesota Wild and needed help off the ice. He did not return and was unable to put any weight on one leg. An update should be available later on Wednesday
Mathieu Garon, Tampa Bay Lightning – Groin – Day-to-Day
In a play that was very similar in appearance to the Tuukka Rask injury Garon left Tuesdays game with a groin injury. The tear will cause him to be sidelined 3-4 weeks, making Dustin Tokarski a fantasy option.
Brandon Dubinsky, New York Rangers – Hand – Day-to-Day
Dubinsky suffered a hand injury in a fight with Devils Ryan Carter in Tuesday's game.
Colby Armstrong, Toronto Maple Leafs – Upper Body Injury – Day-to-Day
Armstrong hit Bruins Seidenberg in a vulnerable position near the boards. Seidenberg took exception and bet up Armstrong pretty good. Armstrong was bleeding after the fight.

Other New Additions

James Van Riemsdyk, Philadelphia Flyers – Broken Foot – Four to Six Weeks
After returning from Concussion just over a week ago, JVR is right back on the IR Report. This time with a broken foot that required surgery to repair it.
