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.

Eric ComrieWill be sidelined for multiple weeks due to a lower-body injury. His first season with the Sabres isn't off to a great start as he sports a 3.62 GAA and .887 save percentage over 11 games. In his absence, Craig Anderson and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen are expected to share the net in Buffalo.

Kyle Okposo – Buffalo's captain has been skating on his own recently and is reportedly feeling better. He's been day-to-day with a lower-body injury for almost two weeks now.

Frederik AndersenWhen asked about his injured players on November 16th, coach Rod Brind'Amour said "nobody's close to getting back". It doesn't sound like Andersen's been on the ice recently, so I don't expect he'll be ready to return any time soon. The Hurricanes' netminder is on Injured Reserve (IR) with a lower-body injury that's described as more serious than a day-to-day issue, but not quite a week-to-week issue. Antti Raanta and Pyotr Kochetkov should continue to share the net while he's sidelined.
