Updates on Perry, Weber, Crawford, plus more…

Hopefully both you and the members of your fantasy hockey team had a chance to rest during the Christmas break! This week we take a look at Anaheim Ducking out of the Injury Ward, and new patients putting on their Blue Jackets.

Corey PerryThe latest update we have on the Ducks’ forward came December 23 when coach Randy Carlyle revealed there was no timeline for Perry’s return. It seems like the team expects Perry to be back after Ryan Kesler, hopefully early in January. In case your holiday memories have replaced your fantasy hockey knowledge, I’ll remind you that it’s a knee injury Perry is recovering from.

Shea WeberThe Habs’ defenseman missed time before the Christmas break with a nagging foot injury he sustained on opening night. The Canadiens have a weird way of dealing with injuries, so throw any logic out the window and wait until we get a reliable update from the team. It’s probably worth mentioning that Montreal is 6-2-1 without Weber this season. 

Oh, here's that update now:

Logan CoutureConcussion = no definitive timeline. Logan Couture put it best after skating recently, when he said, “I’m not playing if I don’t feel good. It could be one game, it could be 10 games, it could be the whole season.”

Devan DubnykIf all goes according to plan, Dubnyk could be back in the beginning of 2018. Alex S
