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.

Krejci (upper-body) missed Wednesday’s practice but has not been ruled out of Thursday’s game.

Krejci left Monday’s game against the Ducks after playing just 4:43 TOI and did not return. He wasn’t on the ice for Wednesday’s session but head coach Bruce Cassidy believes there’s still a chance that he suits up vs. the Lightning. Charlie Coyle will move up to the second line if Krejci is unavailable.

Forsberg (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

It looks like the Predators avoided disaster and Forsberg will not miss an extended period of time. Forsberg was forced to leave Tuesday’s game in the late stages and did not return. He was not on the ice for Wednesday’s optional practice and head coach Peter Laviolette said Forsberg will “probably” be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Sorensen (concussion protocol) practiced on Tuesday; will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Sorensen has missed the last three games but could be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Hurricanes. Head coach Pete DeBoer said that Sorensen “took a good step” and “it’s all about how you react to things the next day, so not prepared to pencil him in yet.” So monitor Sorensen’s status during Wednesday’s morning skate.

Perry (foot) will be a game-time decision.

Perry has missed the first seven games of the season but appears set to make his Stars debut on Wednesday. The Stars returned two forwards to Texas (AHL) on Tuesday, paving the way for Perry to enter the lineup. Perry’s best days are behind him—he was on a 16-goal, 11-assist per 82 game pace last year but had a devastating 4.4 on-ice SH%.
