Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Thursday

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

A fantasized look at some NHL injury news on a Thursday morning.

Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) supposedly had a 50/50 shot to play yesterday but, ultimately, he could not go. Bylsma was quoted as saying he wouldn't be in a rush to get either Malkin or Crosby back before the playoffs just so that they could get into a regular season game.

Michael Ryder sat out last night's game and the Canadiens could have used a couple of goals from him. He's day-to-day with a UBI.

Jussi Jokinen got sick mid-game last night and had to leave without returning. I'd assume he wouldn't miss too much time with the illness.

Matt Cooke took a stick to the chops and had to come out of the game last night. No word on what the injury is or any timetable yet.

Kari Lehtonen (groin) is good to go and will get the start tonight.

Alex Chiasson (shoulder) will not be in the lineup for the Stars tonight.

Luca Sbisa sat out last night's Ducks game with "general soreness." He's day-to-day.

Returning from the injured list last night: Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Tim Erixon, Yannick Weber, Brandon Prust
