Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Saturday

USA TODAY Sports

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

Great news here as Ilya Kovalchuk (shoulder) will return to the Devils lineup this afternoon. Get him in your lineups if it's possible.

Viktor Fasth had to sit out last night with a UBI. It doesn't sound like anything major but goalie injuries are always cause for concern.

The ageless one, Teemu Selanne, also sat out with a UBI last night. It was the first game he's missed this season.

Dennis Wideman has a broken finger and wasn't able to play last night. He may decide to play with it going forward, however, so he's listed as just day-to-day.

Curtis Glencross suffered a knee injury last night and had to leave the game without returning. He's also listed as day-to-day for the Flames.

It sounds as if Mikael Samuelsson (chest) is good to go as he practiced hard yesterday so expect him in the lineup today.

Steve Begin scored two goals on Wednesday night but could not play in last night's game with a UBI.

Apparently Nicklas Backstrom suffered an arm injury on Thursday night and didn't play towards the end of the 3rd period. The word on him is that he's fine and should play today.

Returning from the injured list: Cam Fowler, Brian McGrattan, Milan Hejduk
