Fantasy Hockey Injury Updates for Tuesday

Harry How

A quick look at NHL injury news on Tuesday morning

James Neal was cleared for practice Monday and may even return for Tuesday's game. Really, after a concussion that seems to have been lingering for a while, he's just going to miss one game? Why the rush? Sure, the Penguins have been awful lately, but they've been awful with him too.

Kris Letang practiced on Monday and fully intends to return this season.

Paul Stastny practiced on Monday and we'll know Tuesday morning (after press time, unfortunately) whether his back is good to go.

Still with the Avalanche, Ryan O'Reilly will suit up Tuesday after exiting Sunday's game early.

Kari Lehtonen practiced this week and may play Tuesday night. Check leftwinglock or your favourite source for the up to date status closer to game time.

Jiri Tlusty will miss Tuesday's game with a lower body injury, but if your fantasy team is relying on Jiri Tlusty, you've already Tlosty'd.

Jonathan Bernier is day-to-day with a strained groin. Look to James Reimer to face the usual 50 shots a night for the time being.

T.J. Oshie missed Monday night's game, but do not worry, he was not hurt, he merely fathered a child. His daughter was born in the morning and by the afternoon had already won a Timbits Hockey game in a shootout.
