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.

Ryan GetzlafA lower-body injury kept Anaheim's captain sidelined during Sunday's game against the Sharks. He was on the ice for Tuesday morning's skate ahead of Anaheim's clash with Chicago, but he left the skate early and didn't end up playing against the Blackhawks. I guess he's day-to-day until we hear otherwise.

Isac LundestromMissed Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks as he did not travel to Chicago for the first game of Anaheim's five-game road trip. He's dealing with a lower-body injury

Josh MansonWas a full participant in Tuesday morning's skate and there's a good chance he returns to the lineup for Thursday's game against Nashville. A finger injury has kept him sidelined for the past month.

Matt GrzelcykWas on the ice for Monday's morning skate but left early because of an upper-body injury. Grzelcyk was a game-time decision ahead of Monday's game against the Kings, and although he didn't play, the fact that his status was decided so close to puck-drop suggests his injury isn't too serious.

Frederik AndersenWasn't available for Sunday's game against Seattle because of an undisclosed injury which isn't serious – likely a day-to-day ailment. As I write this, he hasn't been ruled out of Thursday's clash with Colorado.

Adam BoqvistThe Blue Jackets defenseman is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. He wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's practice, so I don't expect he'll be available against the Islanders on Thursday.
