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.

Matt GrzelcykLeft Sunday's game against the Capitals because of an upper-body injury. He was feeling a little better on Tuesday, but didn't end up playing against the Blues. The Bruins are hoping to have Grzelcyk back for Thursday's game against the Senators. 

David PastrnakHas been skating on his own recently but isn't progressing as quickly as coach Bruce Cassidy would have hoped. At this point, the undisclosed injury he's dealing with isn't believed to be a long-term issue, but it sounds like recovery is taking longer than the team originally anticipated. Based on this recent update, I don't think he'll be available for Thursday's game against Ottawa.

Hampus LindholmA lower-body injury has kept Lindholm out of Boston's last three games. He's been skating on his own recently, but isn't progressing as quickly as the team would have hoped. Although the recovery process is taking longer than expected, he isn't expected to be out long term.

Erik GudbransonIs dealing with an undisclosed injury but has been practicing with the team recently, so he shouldn't be sidelined for too much longer.

Oliver KylingtonAfter missing five games due to an upper-body injury, Kylington practiced with the team on Monday and declared he was ready to return to the lineup. He ultimately didn't play against the Kraken on Tuesday but based on his self-assessment, he should be back very soon. Perhaps we see him return against Vegas on Thursday?
