For a consolidated list of injuries & current status, see our Injury Updates page.

Jimmy Howard has back spasms that are not serious according to everyone... but that still makes our spidey senses tingle.  He couldn't dress for last night's game but isn't expected to be out long.

Kris Versteeg also missed last night's game due to a sore back... he's listed as day-to-day.

Carlo Colaiacovo left last night's game after taking a big hit from Jordan Tootoo and is likely out with a concussion.

Wayne Simmonds suffered a LBI last night and couldn't finish the game... doesn't sound too serious as he tried to play on it but decided not to push it.

No real details on Marian Hossa's UBI but the news was good as he's only expected to miss two weeks.

Brian Campbell is almost ready to go and it sounds like he could return either Saturday or Monday... get ready to activate!

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Kris Russell.
