Injury Updates - Dec 23rd, 2010

Datsyuk owners will be crying in their nog this morning

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

Early lump of coal in the stocking of Pavel Datsyuk owners last night as he broke his hand/wrist and is expected to be out for a month... he was 6th in league scoring so that's gonna hurt.  Just a pure guess here but I can see Zetterberg shifting to the middle and Hudler getting some extra minutes on a scoring line as the Wings try to minimize the loss, so keep an eye on that.

Marian Gaborik will sit out tonight's game with his usual nagging groin injury... that will give him a few days over the holidays to rest it up.

The Penguins Brent Johnson suffered a groin injury last night and had to leave the game early.

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Steve Sullivan, Patric Hornqvist & Ryan Malone.
