Hendricks left Tuesday's game with a leg injury and did not return.

Hendricks was injured while blocking a Shea Weber blast last night. We all know how hard Weber can fire the puck, so you can imagine the pain. Consider him day-to-day until more details are known.

The Oilers have acquired Matt Hendricks from the Predators in exchange for Devan Dubnyk.

With Dubnyk's poor play this season, the Oilers did not receive much in return. Hendricks is a bottom-6 forward who has a career-high of 25 points (2010-11). They already have plenty off talent upfront, so Hendricks has been brought in to help their checking line. He is a solid two way forward who has produced 96 hits and 54 penalty minutes this season. Those are the only two fantasy categories that the 32-year-old is going to help you in.

#Caps lines this am: Hendricks-Ribeiro-Ovechkin

Hendricks has been moved to the Capitals top line alongside Ribeiro and Ovechkin. This gives Hendricks a chance to produce offensively but he only has three goals and one assist in 19 games this season. He has 54 points in 234 career NHL games, not good numbers from a fantasy standpoint but lets see what he can do on the top line.
