I know many of us are focusing on our playoff matchups this week, so I’ll try and get straight to the point! If you don’t see a certain player below, there probably haven’t been any major developments in their progress. Once there is a significant update, I’ll be sure to have it for you on Twitter @BrennanDeSouza!

 

The Big Guns (>75% owned in Yahoo Leagues)

 

Patrik LaineLeft Tuesday’s game after blocking a shot, but according to coach Paul Maurice, the injury doesn’t appear to be anything long-term. Winnipeg’s next game is on Friday against the Ducks, Laine’s presence or absence in the lineup will help us make more judgements regarding the true severity of the injury. If you want to see any further update between now and then, follow me on Twitter @BrennanDeSouza.

Evgeny KuznetsovHas been skating on his own and is expected to travel with the team as they begin a three-game road trip (March 22st to March 26th).

 

Marc-Andre FleuryLeft Tuesday’s game against the Canucks but doesn’t appear to be anything serious. Teammate Jonathan Marchessault said it was precautionary from what he had heard.
