The latest injury updates to get you ready for the season’s final weekend and your playoff pool draft.

 

Injury info will start becoming more and more vague once the Stanley Cup Playoff start. Here are the latest injury updates with playoffs in mind.


EASTERN CONFERENCE

 

Chris Kelly (undisclosed) is day-to-day with back spasms and is optimistic about being ready for playoffs.

 

Kevan Miller (undisclosed) was on the ice for morning skate and is a game time decision for Thursday.


Jarome Iginla (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate and is a game time decision for Thursday.


Adam McQuaid (quadriceps) skated on Tuesday but there is no timetable for a return after suffering a setback in March.


Dennis Seidenberg (knee) is well ahead of his recovery from surgery could return late in the playoffs. He skated on Tuesday.


Nathan Horton (lower body) was less than convincing when talking to the media about his health after aggravating injury Tuesday night. Now that the Columbus Blue Jackets are a lock for playoffs don't expect him back before the playoffs.


R.J. Umberger (upper body) will miss a couple of weeks after suffering an upper body injury, meaning he will likely miss the start of the first round.


Nick Foligno  (lower body) will miss the rest of the regular season and could return for the playoffs.
