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.

Josh MansonThe Ducks defenseman is dealing with a finger injury and recently had some tests done to learn more about the ailment. Anaheim doesn't play again until February 11th, which gives Manson some time to recover. 

Tuukka RaskIs officially day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Reports indicate he's dealing with the lingering effects of hip surgery, which he had in the summer of 2021. Rask looked rusty in his initial return from the surgery, posting a 4.28 GAA and .844 save percentage through four appearances before he was eventually sidelined with this current injury.

Casey MittelstadtThe 23-year-old center is going to see the same doctor who performed surgery on his upper-body injury back in early December. Based on that information, it seems Mittelstadt is dealing with the lingering effects of that procedure, or perhaps a re-aggravation of the initial injury.

Teuvo TeravainenHas missed Carolina's last two games due to a lingering lower-body injury. The Hurricanes don't play again until February 7th, so hopefully having this week off gives Teravainen enough time to recover.

Jonathan ToewsChicago's captain sustained a concussion during last Wednesday's clash with Detroit. Recovering from a head injury is an unpredictable process and coach Derek King made it clear there's no concrete timetable for Toews' return.
