NHL Player Injury News

Is he day-to-day or out indefinitely? You need to know who’s healthy and who’s hurt on draft day and during the season to ensure Fantasy Hockey success.

Mantha (mid-body) will miss at least one more month; could miss the rest of the season.

Mantha, who has been out since December 21st, will be sidelined until at least late February. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not rule out the possibility of Mantha missing the rest of the regular season, especially when you consider that the Red Wings season is effectively over.

Green is expected to miss a couple of weeks with an upper-body injury.

Green was forced to leave Monday's game with an upper-body injury and head coach Jeff Blashill announced that he'll be out for at least a couple of weeks. With the bye week starting after Wednesday's game, Green could only end up missing roughly seven games. Jonathan Ericsson will likely draw back into the lineup for Ericsson on Wednesday.

Krejci (upper-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

Krejci has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury but will be a game-time decision tonight vs. the Golden Knights. With the bye week starting after tonight, it would be surprising to see Krejci play but monitor his status during warmups at 6:30 pm ET. If he plays, Charlie Coyle will move to the third line and Par Lindholm will be a healthy scratch.

Schultz (lower-body) could return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Schultz was on the ice for Monday's practice and has not been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Philadelphia. This would be a huge boost to the Penguins blueline, who have seen John Marino and Marcus Pettersson step-up in his absence. Schultz had two goals and six assists (eight points) in 27 games before getting hurt in mid-December.

Kahun is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Kahun was forced to leave Sunday's game in the second period and did not return. He was not on the ice for Monday's morning skate and head coach Mike Sullivan announced that he has been diagnosed with a concussion. Luckily the Penguins bye week is around the corner, so Kahun could only end up missing about three games.

Koivu (illness) is not expected to play on Monday.

Koivu was a late-scratch on Saturday and it looks like he'll miss his second straight game on Monday. Koivu took part in the Wild's morning skate but is not expected to play vs. the Panthers. After a 7-0 win, head coach Bruce Boudreau may not want to change things.

Filppula (lower-body) is doubtful to play Monday in Colorado.

Filppula left Saturday's game vs. the Panthers after being hit by Vincent Trocheck late in the first period and missed Sunday's practice. Head coach Jeff Blashill did not have much of an update on Filppula's status but labelled him as questionable for Monday's afternoon game. With Filppula likely out, look for Brendan Perlini to draw into the lineup.

Donskoi (concussion) will miss Monday's afternoon game vs. the Red Wings.

Donskoi ditched the non-contact sweater and was a full participant in Sunday's practice. Still, Donskoi will miss his fifth straight game and will take the 11 days between games to get back to 100 percent. Look for him to travel on their five-game road trip and return to the lineup on February 1st in Philadelphia.
