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 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

Rickard Rakell – Is officially day-to-day with an upper-body injury that's kept him sidelined since March 28th. Judging from the play in which he was hurt, he may be dealing with a head injury. This would be difficult to put a timeframe on because concussion-like symptoms tend to be unpredictable. He skated on his own recently and is 'inching closer' to a return, according to head coach Dallas Eakins. 

Ryan Getzlaf – Left Friday's game against the Coyotes with an upper-body injury and is officially day-to-day. He didn't practice on Monday and wasn't in the lineup on Tuesday against the Sharks. Anaheim's next game is on Friday against the Avalanche, which seems like enough time for Getzlaf to recover from an injury that isn't believed to be too serious. 

Antti Raanta – Has been sidelined since March 22nd with a lower-body injury that was expected to keep him out a while. He's reportedly progressing faster than originally anticipated and could join the team at some point on their road trip – which includes five more games and extends to April 14th
