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.

Bergeron (lower-body) will travel to Toronto for Saturday's game.

Bergeron played 21:25 TOI in the Bruins shootout loss to the Lightning on Thursday, so he must have played through a lower-body issue. The Bruins No.1 centre will accompany the team to Toronto and anticipates playing against the Maple Leafs. He has had a terrific start to the season, scoring two goals with five assists (seven points) in seven games.

McCann (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

McCann was a game-time decision on Wednesday and was held out of the lineup vs. the Avalanche but was at practice on Thursday and remains a game-time decision on Friday. It looks more likely that he will play tonight than it did two days ago, but monitor his status during warmups.

The Capitals have placed Richard Panik (upper-body) on LTIR.

Panik was forced to leave Wednesday’s game against the Maple Leafs after colliding heavily with teammate Jonas Siegenthaler. Immediately moving him to LTIR means it’s a fairly significant upper-body issue and means that he will miss at least 10 games or 24 days. Garnet Hathaway is expected to move up to the third line in Panik’s spot.

Kempny (hamstring) will make his season debut on Friday.

Kempny missed the first eight games of the season but will play Friday vs. the Rangers. With Jonas Siegenthaler playing well on the top-pair, Kempny will get eased back in on the third-pair with Radko Gudas but could return to his minute-eating ways in a quick hurry. Kempny had 25 points (6G / 19A), 111 shots and 84 hits while playing 19:11 ATOI in 71 games a season ago.

Tavares will miss at least two weeks with a broken finger.

Tavares sustained a broken finger late in the Maple Leafs’ loss to the Capitals on Wednesday. Tavares will be out for at least two weeks and will be re-evaluated by the medical staff at that point. This is obviously a massive blow for the Maple Leafs and a rarity for Tavares, who has only missed a combined nine games over the last five seasons.

Krejci (upper-body) will not play Thursday vs. the Lightning.

Krejci was hurt in Monday’s game against the Ducks and will miss Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury. Par Lindholm will draw into the lineup to replace Krejci and Charlie Coyle will move up to the second line. Krejci is day-to-day.
