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

Jussi Jokinen suffered a LBI last night and had to leave the game... no update on his condition afterwards, he'll be re-evaluated today.

Mark Letestu missed last night's game due to a knee injury... not sure on the extent yet.

Francois Beauchemin left last night's game early with an undisclosed injury.

The Wild are hoping that Marek Zidlicky can return to practice in about two weeks... this is relatively good news as there was some talk that his season was over after suffering a separated shoulder.

Ryan Malone (mid-body) skated yesterday but his coach said "He's not close to being ready", so he'll miss a few more.

Logan Couture missed last night's game due to the influenza.

Jordan Staal received a match penalty last night which comes with an automatic one game suspension... the automatic part being that the league automatically rescinds it the next day, which they did today, so Staal will play tonight.

It's questionable if Evgeni Malkin can return tonight, whereas Ales Hemsky (concussion) and Danny Cleary (ankle) are probable to make their returns

The Wings were hoping to get Pavel Datsyuk back tonight from his hand injury but he's still not ready, perhaps by Friday.

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Evander Kane, Ryan Callahan, Dan Girardi, Brandon Dubinsky & James van Riemsdyk.
