Fantasy Hockey Injury Updates for Monday

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at NHL injury news from Sunday night.

David Backes missed Sunday's action with a UBI. He missed time with a concussion earlier this month but was only out for two games. He was relatively useless in the 3 games since then so maybe he tried to rush his return?

Jonas Gustavsson will miss Detroit's tilt with the Predators with a groin injury. These are pretty common for goalies so consider him DTD but note that he has missed time with groin injuries in the past.

PA Parenteau left the game in the 2nd period after getting tangled up with with Jacob Trouba. He's scheduled to have an MRI after he couldn't put any weight on his injured leg.

Marc Staal (concussion) appears close to returning after taking part in Sunday's morning skate.

Captain injury, Jason Spezza, won't play Monday with an apparent hip injury. I tuned in to the CBC broadcast of the Sens-Bruins game where they actually said that Ottawa played a more complete game without Spezza. Let's hope Paul McLean doesn't feel the same way.

Sergei Gonchar skated with a no-contact jersey on Monday so it appears as if he's progressing well as he recovers from a concussion.

You know the injury updates are sparse when I'm writing about Shawn Horcoff. He missed practice Monday so don't be surprised if he doesn't lace them up for his next game.
