Ryan McDonagh is expected back and other injury updates you need to know about.
Calgary Flames: Karri Ramo– The Flames have placed Ramo on injured reserve with a knee injury. While Ramo is out of action, Jonas Hiller should see a lot more action. The Flames don’t have many options beyond Hiller so he should see the majority of the starts. However, things have not gone smoothly since the injury. In his past two starts, Hiller has given up four goals each game. Hiller should turn it around soon and could provide could value during Ramo’s absence.
Los Angeles Kings: Marian Gaborik– Gaborik has been placed on injured reserve by the Kings. Look at that. Who would expect Gaborik getting injured? Gaborik is a certified band-aid boy and it was only a matter of time before we saw him get put on the injured reserve list. At least his injury won’t affect many poolies, considering he’s only owned in 33% of Yahoo leagues and only has 22 points on the season.
New Jersey Devils: Jon Merrill- Merrill is close to returning and is considered day-to-day.
New York Islanders: Calvin de Haan- A lower-body injury forced de Haan to leave Monday’s game early.
New York Rangers: Ryan McDonagh– McDonagh is ready to return today after sustaining a concussion in a game against the Flyers. While McDonagh’s return will tremendously help the Rangers as a team, Keith Yandle’s value takes a hit. In McDonagh’s absence, Yandle saw a huge increase in ice time and powerplay but now with his return, Yandle is at risk of seeing his ice time decrease again.
As long as Allen is out of action, Brian Elliott will keep providing great value. In his past 10 games, Elliot has had a save percentage above .950 in seven games and has posted six games.
Toronto Maple Leafs: Josh Leivo- The Maple Leafs have placed Leivo on injured reserve.
Vancouver Canucks: Bo Horvat- Horvat was originally expected to miss Monday’s game with a foot injury but he was able to play and is healthy.
