Injury Updates - Jan 18th, 2011

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

Mark Streit was spotted skating yesterday and now everyone is expecting him to return soon... I'm not getting my hopes up and this is the Islanders we're talking about, why would they risk bringing him back?... that might actually make them better, which they obviously don't want.

Rather amazingly, Milan Jurcina was picked up in a league I'm in yesterday, so I guess I should mention that he left yesterday's game early with a UBI.

Kris Versteeg returned to practice yesterday and is likely to return on Wednesday.

Jimmy Howard (knee) won't go tonight but is hoping to return for Thursday's game.

Chris Pronger (foot) is also eyeing Thursday for his return.

Jose Theodore has been skating and sounds like he could return later this week from his hip injury.

Seems a two week recovery for Bryan McCabe (broken jaw) was a tad optimistic as he's actually expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Returning to action from the injured list last night: Milan Lucic & Steven Kampfer.
