Injury News for Saturday's NHL Games

Eberle is suffering from a pretty serious injury and his availability is currently unknown.

There are a few injuries to note, and hopefully you have the necessary means of finding quality replacements as the important time in fantasy takes flight.

Michal Neuvirth - The recently traded goaltender is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vancouver Canucks due to a lower body injury. He probably is not very relevant, because he plays in Buffalo, but is a good handcuff for Enroth. Speaking of which...

Jhonas Enroth - Refer to the above information. Same injury, same update. Nathan Lieuwen may see another start.

Brandon Saad - The young forward is currently sidelined with an upper body injury. He is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Nashville Predators.

Jordan Eberle - Eberle is suffering from a sprained knee and is listed as doubtful for tonight's Battle of Alberta with the Calgary Flames. These are some tough shoes to fill, good luck.

Nail Yakupov - If things could not get any worse for the young Russian, Yakupov is currently dealing with an illness and a bruised ankle, he is listed as doubtful and could miss some significant time, not that you would notice.

Jonathan Huberdeau - Another youngster having some trouble this season, Huberdeau had been dealing with hip problems going into this year and is now listed with a lower body injury. His status for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Kings is questionable, but unless you are in a keeper league, he should have been dropped a long time ago.

Kyle Okposo - To continue the Islanders' bad luck, Okposo is currently listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with a lower body injury. Given the state of their team, I would not expect him to rush back to the lineup.

Michael Grabner - I'm not too sure how deep your league is, but if you have to own Grabner, we've got you covered. He is suffering from a concussion and will likely sit out Saturday's game, keep checking in for an update.

Steve Downie - Downie left Saturday's game against the St. Louis Blues with an upper body injury and has yet to return. More news will be available in tomorrow's update.

Alexandre Burrows - A player who initially had a season to forget, Burrows has scored 9 points in his last 6 games, but is now suffering from a lacerated left hand. He is currently questionable for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Ondrej Pavelec - Currently suffering from a lower body injury, the number one goalie for the Winnipeg Jets is listed as questionable for today's game against the Carolina Hurricanes. Keep an eye out for who gets the start.

Dustin Byfuglien - A huge blow to the Jets, Buff's injury report and status is the same as Pavelec's. Check is updates frequently to see if he gets in the lineup, seems unlikely for now.
