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 our last article. If you ever need injury updates for a specific player, shoot me a message on Twitter @BrennanDeSouza.

Ukko-Pekka LuukkonenLeft Tuesday's game against the Lightning with a lower-body injury and is out week-to-week. He'd been solid for the Sabres this season, posting a 2.74 GAA and .917 save percentage through nine appearances. With Craig Anderson and Malcolm Subban out month-to-month with upper-body injuries and Dustin Tokarski still sidelined because of COVID, Buffalo will have to rely on Aaron Dell for the next little while.

Antti RaantaIs dealing with an upper-body injury that shouldn't be a long-term issue but is more serious than a day-to-day ailment. He wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's practice.

Dylan LarkinMissed Tuesday's game against the Sharks due to an upper-body injury and was labelled day-to-day. Larkin hasn't been ruled out of Thursday's clash with Winnipeg.

Ryan Nugent-HopkinsOn January 7th, he received treatment for a lower-body injury and was expected to stay off the ice for at least a week. He hasn't skated since and early reports indicate this injury could keep Nugent-Hopkins sidelined for three-to-four weeks.

Cam TalbotLeft the Winter Classic on New Year's Day with a lower-body injury and has been out of action since. Talbot
