NHL Injury Update: The latest on O'Reilly, Huberdeau, Petry, McDonagh, Giroux, Nash, Malkin and many others.
Can the St. Louis Blues ever ice their entire lineup? They are seventh in man-games lost this year and have missed contributions from key players throughout the year due to injuries. Find out which Blue got injured and more in this week’s IR Report.
Arizona Coyotes: Anders Lindback– After successfully repairing his Achilles tendon on Friday, Lindback will miss the rest of the season. Mike Smith is on the road with the team and could be back within a week.
Philadelphia Flyers: Claude Giroux– Giroux couldn’t play in yesterday’s game against the Hurricanes because of an upper-body injury. He will miss Thursday's game as well, and there is no timetable for his return. But the suspicion is that he has a concussion. Given his concussion history, fantasy owners should be concerned.
Pittsburgh Penguins: Evgeni Malkin– Malkin has been ruled out of Wednesday's game and is still recovering from a lower-body injury that has kept him out of action since February second. He is practicing though, so he should be back by the weekend.
San Jose Sharks: Matt Tennyson- Tennyson likely has a concussion but will still travel with the team.
St. Louis Blues: Brian Elliott– Elliott will miss the next four weeks with a lower-body injury. And just when Jake Allen returns from his injury, Elliot goes down for the next month. He was having a great run too, winning seven of his past 10 games and posting a save percentage over .920 in seven of the same amount of games. At least Allen owners will be relieved to know that their goalie will be getting the majority of the Blues starts from now on, considering that the Blues don’t have a lot of options beyond Allen. Before Elliott got injured, there was speculation that Allen and Elliott might split time due to Elliott’s recent success but it’s Allen’s net now.
Tampa Bay Lightning: Nikita Kucherov– A lower-body injury prevented Kucherov from playing in last night’s game against Arizona and is day-to-day. He practiced on Wednesday with the Triplets line so the expectation is that he will be back Friday.
