Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Saturday

Joel Auerbach

A fantasized look at the NHL injury news on Saturday morning

It's looking likely that Tim Thomas will be able to return today for a matinee game in Ottawa after missing nearly three weeks due to a leg injury.  If not today then tomorrow as the Panthers play back-to-back.

No need to rush Craig Anderson back from his neck injury... he's good to go but will likely back-up the sizzling Robin Lehner and his .947 sv% for today's game.

Stephen Weiss is considered day-to-day with a groin injury but it could keep him out for a while, so stay tuned. Not that your fantasy team would miss him as he's been invisible with just three points so far this year.  In shallow leagues you likely dropped him long ago and deep leaguers are likely going to have to cut the cord as well.  Not sure who takes over his #2C role, let's wait for MoP to chime in.

Beau Bennett is expected to return today after nearly a month off due to a LBI.  He's been skating with Geno & The Juice (sounds like morning radio DJs) in practice so nice to see that he'll jump right back on to a scoring line when healthy.

The Hoff, no not Hasselhoff, Christian Ehrhoff, couldn't go last night due to a LBI that he acquired on Thursday.  Not sure how long he's out for but given how bad he and the Sabres have been this year, we could probably all use a little break.  Now, back to the other The Hoff:

R.J. Umberger (neck), Ryan Murray (UBI) & Radim Vrbata (LBI) are all questionable for their games today... so use caution.

Steve Downie (concussion & eye) is eyeing up (see what I just did there?) a return on Tuesday, so some good news for Flyers fans and his fantasy owners.

Evander Kane was back in the lineup last night after missing two games with a LBI.  He and his coach have agreed to disagree as to whether he missed Wednesday's game due to injury or as a healthy scratch.  Moving on.

Mark Fraser made his return for the Leafs after missing over a month with a knee strain.
