Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Tuesday

Justin K. Aller

A quick look at NHL injury news on Tuesday morning

Jaden Schwartz (undisclosed) and Vladimir Sobotka (upper body) did not play for the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.

David Backes dished out seven hits in 11 minutes but absorbed one with his skull and stumbled off the ice - never a good sign. The interwebs are abuzz with concussion speculation but details were unavailable at press time. Backes' career health has been surprisingly close to ironman-level despite the physical edge he plays with.

Ryan Wilson did not suit up last night but may return for the Colorado Avalanche Tuesday.

David Clarkson of the Toronto Maple Leafs sat out for the second game of his two-game suspension for a head check and is now eligible to return and skate in beautiful slow-motion for the HBO 24/7 cameras. Wait, that's Clarkson at regular speed?

Evgeni Malkin didn't suit up for the Pittsburgh Penguins Monday and is "day to day" with a "lower body ailment" after crashing legs-first into the end-boards last week. It doesn't sound overly serious at this point and James Neal still has one more game to serve of his five game suspension so hopefully they'll return together, since they go together like fries and vinegar.

Pittsburgh Penguins' actual NHL player Jayson Megna (I keep trying to put the 'y' in his last name) left the game after colliding with Jonathan Bernier and is unlikely to play Wednesday.

Winnepeg Jets' forward Evander Kane returned to action and to greatness.
