Fantasy Hockey Injury Updates for Saturday

Evgeni Malkin will likely miss Saturday's contest. - Jamie Sabau

Bringing you the latest news in player injuries from Friday night.

Cody Hodgson - He blocked a shot on Thursday night that has kept him sidelined every since. Coach Ted Nolan has hinted that he could miss between one to three weeks depending on the severity of the injury. Adjust accordingly.

Corey Crawford - He's been on the ice for a few practices but still remains a few weeks away. Keep your fingers crossed.

Marian Gaborik - The skilled winger was activated off IR and should be ready to go against the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. The question is how long will he last. Get him in your lineup while he's healthy.

Gustav Nyquist - The nice surprise of the Detroit Red Wings has been sidelined with a sore groin. He remains questionable for Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Dustin Brown - the Captain of the Los Angeles Kings has been hurt due to a bruised knee after a collision with rookie sensation Tomas Hertl. He is currently questionable for Saturday so keep that in mind when setting your lineups.

Josh Harding - He was scheduled to get treatment for his multiple sclerosis and management seemed aware of him missing some time in December. Hopefully he can get back on the ice soon, as he remains the best goalie in fantasy hockey this season.

Damien Brunner - After finding his game again with the Devils, Brunner left Friday's contest against the Anaheim Ducks with a right knee injury. No time frame has been given, but surgery will not be required.

Mika Zibanejad - The Swedish prospect is currently sidelined with an upper body injury. There are no updates on the injury or time frame, but he remains questionable for Saturday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Evgeni Malkin - One of the worst players to lose in fantasy hockey, the elite Russian will miss his third straight game on Saturday. He has been dealing with a leg injury since crashing into the boards last Saturday against the Red Wings. For fantasy owners' sake, I hope he gets back on the ice soon.

Tomas Hertl - One of the toughest players to lose right now, the Calder-candidate was the victim of a knee-on-knee collision with Dustin Brown. He is slated to be out about a month and will likely be placed on IR.

Vladimir Sobotka - Seeing an increased role in 2013-14, Sobotka will likely miss his fourth straight game against the Edmonton Oilers due to an upper body injury. Coach Hitchcock told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that "he's probably 50 percent of where he needs to be." He is listed as questionable for tonight's game.

Marcus Johansson - He left Friday's game with a lower body injury and did not return. Coach Adam Oates told the Washington Post that Johansson will be a game-time decision. "Just a little sore, more precautionary." said Oates. He took part in the Captals' optional morning skate, so there's a chance he could play tonight.

Enjoy the Saturday hockey folks!
