The 2021 Dobber Hockey Midseason Guide is now available! It has all the information you need to make a run for your league's title, including first-half analysis, second-half projections, and prospect coverage to prepare you for the future. It's hard to keep up with everything going on across the league with this year's condensed schedule, but the guide certainly helps me stay on top of things!

Here's the latest injury news from across the NHL, and there's a lot to get through! If you're looking for information about a specific player and don't see their name in this article, there probably hasn'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

John Gibson – Missed Tuesday's game with a lower-body injury and is officially day-to-day. He had an excellent start to the season, winning five of his first 12 games, with a 2.26 GAA and .923 save percentage. He's struggled recently, registering just one win through his last 11 games while putting up a 3.98 GAA and .863 save percentage. 

Antti Raanta – Wasn't available for Tuesday's game against the Wild and is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Adin Hill should see a few more starts with both Raanta and Darcy Kuemper sidelined. 

Darcy Kuemper – There haven't been any substantial updates since we learned last week that a knee injury would cause Kuemper to miss significant time, with early indications suggesting a timetable of up to four weeks. Last we heard, Kuemper was out week-to-week and had returned to Arizona for further evaluation.  

Ondrej Kase – The 25-year-old forward continues to skate on his own. He still hasn't been cleared to skate with the team and there's 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.
