Injury Ward: Kuemper, Mackinnon, Teravainen, Eichel & More
Here's the latest injury news from across the NHL! If you're looking for information about a specific player and don't see their name in this article, there probably haven't been any significant updates about their progress since last week's article. If you ever need injury updates for a specific player, shoot me a message on Twitter @BrennanDeSouza.
Hampus Lindholm – The 27-year-old defenseman fractured his wrist on February 27thand will be sidelined for the next six weeks. Kevin Shattenkirk has five points in the five games that Lindholm has missed so far. He's rostered in just 21-percent of Yahoo leagues and could provide some underrated production over the next few weeks.
Darcy Kuemper – The Coyotes netminder suffered a knee injury against Colorado on Monday and is expected to miss significant time. He's definitely unavailable for the rest of the team's current road trip – which extends to March 20thand includes five more games. He'll likely be sidelined for even longer than that, as early indications suggest a timetable of up to four weeks. He's officially week-to-week until we hear otherwise.
Brandon Carlo – The 24-year-old defenseman was rushed to the hospital after taking a hit up high from Tom Wilson on March 5th. Carlo has since been released from the hospital, but will be sidelined for a while.
Ondrej Kase – The Bruins forward continues to skate on his own, but still no word on when exactly he'll be back. Kase has been out since January 16th, when he suffered an upper-body injury in Boston's second game of the 2021 campaign.
