The Anaheim Ducks have [5] players injured.
DucksPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Cam FowlerD Out Oct 20kneeday-to-dayCam Fowler suffered a knee injury Friday night but the extent of the injury has not been announced.
It does not look good for the Ducks defenseman as he could not put any pressure on the knee leaving the ice. Fowler could be out weeks or even months depending on the severity of the injury and that will hurt the Ducks and your fantasy team. Anaheim plays on Tuesday and look for Hampus Lindholm to return to the lineup. Brandon Montour should be bumped up to the top power play as well.
 Patrick EavesW Out Oct 16lower bodyDay-to-DayThe Anaheim Ducks have announced that Patrick Eaves (lower-body) will not travel with the team for their upcoming four-game road trip.
Eaves hasn't played since he re-aggravated his lower-body injury that cost him the start of the season. He's coming off a career year but his lower-body issues should keep him on the waiver wire for the foreseeable future.
 Sami VatanenD I.L.Oct 8shoulderDay-to-DaySami Vatanen (shoulder) will be unable to make his season debut on Friday.
It will be Vatanen's seventh consecutive game on the sidelines to start the campaign. As previously reported, he might be able to return during the Ducks' upcoming four-game road trip.
 Ryan MillerG I.L.Oct 5wristDay-to-DayRyan Miller (wrist) might be able to dress on Friday.
Even if Miller is put in the lineup for that game, it will probably be as the backup goaltender. He might get his first start during the Ducks' upcoming four-game road trip though, which begins on Tuesday.
 Ryan KeslerC I.L.Jun 17hipIndefinitelyAnaheim GM Bob Murray hopes to have Ryan Kesler back in the lineup by Christmas.
However, there is no official timeline for Kesler's return. He underwent hip surgery on June 8. Kesler appeared in all 82 games with the Ducks last season, while accounting for 22 goals, 58 points and 83 penalty minutes.
The Arizona Coyotes have [4] players injured.
CoyotesPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Antti RaantaG Out Oct 12lower bodyDay-to-DayArizona is still high on Antti Raanta even though he has been limited by injuries in the early going this year.
"Just going over all his games from the last couple years and then his first game against Vegas, he was exceptional," said goalie coach Jon Elkin. "He struggled the following game, but that happens sometimes to goaltenders, and I thought he bounced back pretty well the first period against Detroit prior to getting hurt. He looked pretty solid in there. I have a ton of confidence in Antti." Raanta got back to skating on Saturday, but he may not be ready to return Tuesday against the Islanders.
 Brendan PerliniW I.L.Oct 11upper bodyDay-to-dayBrendan Perlini (upper body) skated with his teammates Monday.
Perlini has missed the last five games with what is believed to be a concussion. He has one assist in three appearances this year.
 Jakob ChychrunD I.L.Sep 28kneeIndefinitelyJakob Chychrun is skating today for the first time since undergoing knee surgery in August.
Chychrun was injured during off-season training. He had 20 points in 68 NHL games last season but won't likely have any fantasy value when he returns from his lengthy absence. According to GM John Chayka, there is still no timetable for his return.
 Dave BollandC I.L.Feb 28lower bodyIndefinitelyDave Bolland (lower body) might not be able to play in the NHL again.
Bolland will probably open the season on the long-term injured reserve list after failing his physical. "He’s working towards trying to (play), but again injuries are what they are. He’s been trying to comeback from that injury for the last nine months and he hasn’t gotten to the stage where he can do that to be cleared," said agent Anton Thun. "His goal is to try to continue to play, but at some point in time, it may just be not happening. He may never play again." He's completed two seasons of his five-year, $27.5 million deal.
The Boston Bruins have [6] players injured.
BruinsPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Kevan MillerD Out Oct 21upper bodyDay-to-DayKevan Miller (upper body) practiced Monday in a non-contact jersey.
Miller was paired with Torey Krug during the session. His status for Thursday's game against San Jose is unclear at this time.
 Adam McQuaidD Out Oct 20legMid-DecemberAdam McQuaid suffered a broken right fibula during Thursday's game.
McQuaid has surgery scheduled for Monday to address the injury. He will be sidelined for about eight weeks as a result, which puts his projected return in the middle of December. He has an assist in six games this season.
 David KrejciC Out Oct 19upper bodyDay-to-DayDavid Krejci is suffering from back spasms, according to coach Bruce Cassidy, but it's not believed that it will be a long-term issue.
"I don't think this is an injury that would be long term," said Krejci. "It's just one of these things that happens. When I say to day-to-day, I mean day-to-day. I wouldn't lie to you." He was a game-time decision for Saturday, but he was unable to play after he took part in the pregame warmup.
 Ryan SpoonerC I.L.Oct 19groinMid-to-Late NovemberRyan Spooner (groin) has been moved to the injured reserve list.
It was announced on Wednesday that Spooner would be sidelined for the next four-to-six weeks, so the decision to move him to the injured reserve list isn't surprising. This move allowed the Bruins to activate David Backes from the IR list.
 Tuukka RaskG Out Oct 18concussionDay-to-DayTuukka Rask (concussion) was on the ice before Monday's practice.
Rask skated with goalie coach Bob Essensa and could be back with the team for Tuesday's session. Coach Bruce Cassidy hopes that the Bruins will have Rask back for Saturday if everything goes well, but he also cautioned against looking too far ahead. The good news is that Boston's top goaltender appears to be making progress.
 Noel AcciariW I.L.Oct 9fingerDay-to-DayNoel Acciari (finger) has been moved to injured reserve.
Acciari suffered a fractured index finger on his right hand when he blocked a shot in Thursday's opener. He is expected to be sidelined for the next six weeks.
The Buffalo Sabres have [7] players injured.

 Zemgus GirgensonsW Out Oct 18lower bodyDay-to-DayZemgus Girgensons (lower body) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.
Girgensons left Tuesday's game after being struck by a shot. The Sabres consider him day-to-day, but he'll be reevaluated on Friday.
 Jacob JosefsonC Out Oct 16footWeek-to-weekIt seems Jacob Josefson's lower-body injury is an issue with his right foot or ankle.
That's based on the fact that Josefson was seen wearing a walking boot on Thursday. He was injured on Sunday when he was checked into the end boards. Sabres coach Phil Housley said Josefson is week-to-week.
 Zach BogosianD I.L.Oct 15lower bodyWeek-to-weekZach Bogosian (lower body) is regarded as week-to-week, per Sabres coach Phil Housley.
Bogosian was moved to the injured reserve list earlier this week. He hasn't played yet in the 2017-18 campaign.
 Evan RodriguesC I.L.Sep 23handDay-to-dayEvan Rodrigues has a hand injury and a timetable for his return is unclear.
The severity of the injury has not been determined yet. Rodrigues was hit hard by Toronto defender Andreas Borgman on Friday night. He didn't take part in Monday's practice.
 Justin FalkD I.L.Mar 25undisclosedWeek-to-weekJustin Falk (undisclosed) has resumed skating.
That's progress, but Falk isn't close to returning. He hasn't practiced yet and Sabres coach Phil Housley said that he remains week-to-week. Falk hasn't played at all this season.
The Calgary Flames have only [1] player injured.
FlamesPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Jaromir JagrW I.L.Oct 23lower bodyDay-to-DayJaromir Jagr has been placed on the injured reserve list with a lower body injury.
The injury happened during Saturday's game and it's a shame as he was on the top line with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau. Consider him day-to-day for now and reserve him on your squad. He has two assists in five games but those numbers will improve once he returns if he is able to remain on the top line.
The Carolina Hurricanes have only [1] player injured.
HurricanesPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Lee StempniakW I.L.Sep 20backDay-to-DayLee Stempniak (hip/back) is expected to be sidelined for 10 days to two weeks, according to coach Bill Peters.

The Chicago Blackhawks have [3] players injured.
BlackhawksPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Marian HossaW I.L.Oct 4allergiesIndefinitelyThe Chicago Blackhawks have placed Marian Hossa on the long-term injured list.
By going on LTIR, Hossa's $5.275 million doesn't count against the salary cap. The Blackhawks have already announced that Hossa will miss the entire 2017-18 season because of a skin disorder. The 38-year-old's career is likely over, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.
 Jordin TootooW I.L.Oct 3upper bodyDay-to-DayCoach Joel Quenneville said Jordin Tootoo suffered an upper-body injury during training camp.
Tootoo was put on long-term injured reserve after he cleared waivers on Tuesday. Quenneville said there's a possibility that Tootoo will return this season, but he wouldn't go into specifics about the situation.

 Tyson JostC I.L.Oct 22lower bodyDay-to-DayTyson Jost (lower body) is projected to sit out two-to-three weeks.
Jost was hurt Thursday versus St. Louis and put on injured reserve by Colorado on Sunday. He has already dealt with knee and groin issues this season, but it's unclear if this new ailment is something related or a different problem.
 J.T. CompherC I.L.Oct 22handIndefinitelyJ.T. Compher (broken thumb) is slated to miss about three weeks.
Compher was injured this past Thursday and placed on injured reserve Sunday. He was off to a solid start this year with four points in eight games. Compher produced five points over 21 appearances in 2016-17.
 Sergei BoikovD I.L.Sep 23shoulderIndefinitelySergei Boikov will be out of action indefinitely with a dislocated shoulder.
The Russian defenseman has yet to make an impact in the NHL and will not do so for the foreseeable future due to this injury. Too bad, as he had a big game Thursday night with a huge hit and a goal.
The Detroit Red Wings have [3] players injured.
Red WingsPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Danny DeKeyserD Out Oct 10ankleDay-to-dayDanny DeKeyser (lower body) is projected to miss another one-to-two weeks.

 Tyler BertuzziW I.L.Sep 22wrist3-4 weeksTyler Bertuzzi will be sidelined for approximately 3-4 weeks due to wrist inflammation.
It's a tough break for Bertuzzi who was hoping to crack the Red Wings lineup with a strong training camp. He had zero points in seven NHL contests last season, but picked up 19 points in 19 post-season contests with Grand Rapids during their Calder Cup triumph. After this injury, we would expect Bertuzzi to start the season in the AHL when he is fully healthy.
 Johan FranzenW I.L.Oct 15concussionDay-to-DayJohan Franzen is still dealing with concussion symptoms every couple days.
Franzen last played on October 10th. Unfortunately it's not clear if the 36-year-old will ever play again. We wish him the best in his recovery.

However, it should be noted that Draisaitl has not been officially cleared to return to action, so he should be considered questionable at this time.
 Drake CaggiulaW I.L.Oct 15undisclosedDay-to-DayDrake Caggiula (undisclosed) is nearing a return to the lineup.
Caggiula is questionable for Tuesday night because he hasn't received clearance yet. Still, coach Todd McLellan anticipates that Caggiula will be available to play against Pittsburgh.

He is recovering from knee surgery for a torn ACL and will need at least two more months of healing.

Clifford sustained his upper-body injury during Wednesday's contest against the Calgary Flames. He has one point in three games. He should not be on any fantasy teams.
 Marian GaborikW Out Apr 24kneeDay-to-dayMarian Gaborik (knee) still isn't skating.
Beyond that, there has been no update on Gaborik's status. It's not clear when he'll be back, but this might be a no news, is bad news kind of situation. We wouldn't count on him returning soon, but there's always the possibility that he'll surprise us.
The Minnesota Wild have [4] players injured.
WildPosStatusDateInjuryExpected ReturnDetails
 Nino NiederreiterW I.L.Oct 13ankleWeek-to-weekNino Niederreiter's lower-body injury is a high ankle sprain.
Niederreiter was hurt during Thursday's game against Chicago. The Wild expect him to be sidelined for at least three weeks. As a response to that, Minnesota has moved him to the injured reserve list. With Charlie Coyle also suffering a major injury in the same game and Zach Parise and Mikael Granlund also sidelined, the Wild's forward depth will be put to the test.
 Charlie CoyleW I.L.Oct 13lower bodyLate November/Early DecemberCharlie Coyle's lower-body injury is a right fibula fracture.
Coyle left Thursday's game as a result of the injury. He underwent surgery on Friday and has been placed on the long-term injured reserve list. The Wild hope to have him back in six-to-eight weeks.

The sources said that Parise has experienced little to no back pain, but he has been dealing with persistent, intense pain in one of his legs. The procedure could come as early as Tuesday if he decides to go in that direction. Parise is slated to miss his seventh straight game on Tuesday night
The Montreal Canadiens have [2] players injured.

 David SchlemkoD Out Oct 17handDay-to-DayDavid Schlemko underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his hand.

Bonino has been dealing with a lower-body injury that will keep him out of the lineup for the next couple of weeks. The Predators forward has one goal in five games this season. He doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.
 Ryan EllisD I.L.Sep 7kneeIndefinitelyRyan Ellis' lower-body injury is related to his knee.
Ellis played through the injury during the postseason and needed surgery afterwards for ligament repair. "The initial prognosis on this type of a knee injury is 4-6 months," Predators GM David Poile said. "Right now, we feel and the doctor feels it's going to take the full six months for him to recover. Ryan's not skating yet. He probably will be skating in approximately another three weeks, and the recovery will go from there." The Predators are hoping to have him back around the start of 2018.

 Travis ZajacC I.L.Oct 18pectoralsMid-FebruaryTravis Zajac (pectoral) was on the ice by himself Wednesday.
Zajac was projected to miss four-to-six months after having surgery in August, but Devils coach John Hynes noted that he might be back at the more optimistic end of that spectrum. "There’s a possibility," Hynes said. "Travis is in unbelievable shape. When a guy like that gets injured, sometimes the recovery time is quicker because the body is in good shape. It looks like he’s progressing really well." Zajac had 14 goals and 45 points in 80 contests last season.
 Michael McLeodC I.L.Oct 9kneeday-to-dayMichael McLeod underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee on Thursday.
The operation was a success and McLeod is expected to recover in four-to-six weeks. He sustained the injury during the preseason and consequently began the campaign on the injured reserve list. One he's healthy enough to play he will probably be returned to the OHL to continue his development.
 Brian BoyleC I.L.Oct 3cancerDay-to-DayBrian Boyle was a full participant at Sunday's practice, but there's no timetable for his return to the lineup.
"I'm cleared to play but I don't think I'm in [game] shape or ready to play [yet], said Boyle after the session." This was an encouraging first step though, as he works his way back from chronic myeloid leukemia.

 Clarke MacArthurW Out Sep 14undisclosedDay-to-DayClarke MacArthur failed his medical Thursday, so he isn't cleared to participate in training camp.
"Right now, we don't know much, but he won't be part of camp," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "He was disappointed, but at the same time, he looked in great shape (skating). He trained all summer." The Senators will wait for an update on his status, but for now his future is cloudy. MacArthur has sat out the majority of the past two seasons with concussion problems.

Fabbri underwent surgery for a torn ACL on Feb. 4 and was cleared in July. However, he noticed swelling after playing in a preseason game on Friday and from there it was determined that his ACL was torn again. "In a situation like this, everyone is looking for a villain, everybody is looking for why it happened. Unfortunately this is an ice hockey injury," Blues GM Doug Armstrong said. "Robby is in that uncomfortable three percent of players that had a reoccurrence of this injury." As previously reported, Fabbri has been ruled out for all of the 2017-18 campaign. He will also be held out of the playoffs should the Blues make it that far.

It's the second time in three summers that Berglund has suffered a shoulder injury while training. "This one came completely out of the blue, so it hit me much harder," Berglund said. "You haven’t had any problems with it and out of nowhere you’ve got an injury with this much magnitude. It happened right at the beginning of my workout. I was doing some sledwork outside on the pavement. I was going to max push the sled forward. You keep your arm out straight and you go down really low to get that power, and right when I was going to push, I slipped with the foot that I was pushing with and my body launched forward. I didn’t get the chance to protect my arms and my shoulder, so my body went forward and I got stuck in a bad position." Berglund is expected to return to the Blues lineup in December.

 Nathan HortonW I.L.Sep 17backIndefinitelyNathan Horton has been left off Toronto's training camp roster after failing his physical, he is also not with the team.
Horton, who suffers from a degenerative back condition that has prevented him from playing since the 2013-14 season, is expected to be placed on long-term injury reserve once the regular season begins. The move will relieve $5.3M of cap space, which will be useful for the Maple Leafs as they're currently just $385K below the ceiling.
The Vancouver Canucks have [3] players injured.

 Brendan GaunceW I.L.Oct 22shoulderDay-to-DayBrendan Gaunce (shoulder) is close to a return to the lineup, according to coach Travis Green.
"He's close to playing," Green said. "We'll make a decision here soon in the next probably four or five days on what to do with him whether it's send him down for conditioning or throw him into a game. But he's definitely getting closer." He had no goals and five assists in 57 games with the Canucks last season.
 Loui ErikssonW Out Oct 15kneeMid to Late NovemberLoui Eriksson (knee sprain) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks of action.
