Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Saturday Night

Duncan Keith will likely miss Saturday's game with an illness. This will be a solid blow to fantasy owners and the Chicago Blackhawks. - Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports

There are a few injury notes to take into account as another weekend of NHL hockey rolls around. Here are the updates for some of the more fantasy relevant players in the NHL.

Dougie Hamilton - Sidelined with a concussion, Hamilton will be ready to take the ice against the Philadelphia Flyers. His status is currently set at probable, so expect the youngster to make an appearance. One thing to note is Hamilton has not been very productive this season, so if you still have another choice, it might be the safer bet.

Duncan Keith - The Olympic-bound blueliner is listed as questionable for the Hawks' game against the Winnipeg Jets. He has gone down with an illness and could be taking a breather today. It won't be easy to replace his production, but work with what you have.

Ales Hemsky - If you took a chance on the injury-prone Hemsky, and your team is bad enough to hold on to him, chances are he will miss the next few games with a bruised ankle. He sat out last night against the Yotes.

Aleksander Barkov - The Finnish youngster missed yesterday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes with a knee injury. It is highly likely that the Florida Panthers won't take a chance on him till he's 100% healthy, so feel free to store him away till he makes his return.

Alexander Steen - After an incredible start to the year, Steen has been sidelined consistently since the start of 2014. He was suffering from a concussion earlier in the year and missed 11 games. He is now sidelined with a lower body injury and is listed as day-to-day. If you own him, keep him in your prayers and hope for a speedy return.

Steven Stamkos - Though he is not ready to return, Stamkos has reported that his knee is feeling a lot better since the injury. Just thought I'd get his owners a little excited.

Henrik Sedin - The Vancouver Canucks star has been sidelined with bruised ribs for the last little bit. He is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's game, so if you can make a quick scoop for tomorrow, I would recommend doing so, especially if you were banking on his production.

Enjoy the Saturday games folks!
