Injury Ward: Updates on Quick, Boeser, Raanta, Radulov, and more…

Brennan Des


Here are the latest injury updates from around the NHL. If you notice a player isn’t on the list, there probably haven’t been any new developments since our last update.  As always, follow me on Twitter @BrennanDeSouza for the latest injury information and line combinations.

Ondrej KaseWas on the ice during Tuesday morning’s skate, but he was wearing a non-contact jersey. We need him to be a full participant in practice before we can even start mentioning words like ‘return’. Concussions need to be monitored constantly, and he’ll need to be feeling better for a good stretch of days before getting back into the lineup.

Antti RaantaTweaked something in Tuesday’s practice. It doesn’t sound too serious, so he should still be available for Thursday’s game against the Flyers. He’s travelling with the team on their four-game road trip.

Charlie McAvoyThe Bruins haven’t revealed much about McAvoy’s upper-body injury, and we still don’t know when exactly he’ll be back. While he has been working out off the ice, he hasn’t been skating. I’ll probably have a better update for you next week (it sounds like he won’t be back before then).  

Petr MrazekDay-to-day with a lower-body injury. Doesn’t appear to be anything too serious, he was on the ice Tuesday (but came on as the team’s morning skate wrapped up).

Alexander RadulovHas been skating. He’s aiming to return to the lineup on Thursday when Dallas takes on San Jose. The Stars managed just two goals in their last two games, and could definitely use Radulov back in the lineup.

Thomas VanekOut two to three weeks with a lower-body injury. He had four points in five games prior to the injury.
