Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Tuesday

A fantasized look at the NHL injury news on Tuesday morning

Bruce Bennett

It was announced this morning that Taylor Hall is expected to miss four weeks with his knee injury. Lame.

Kris Letang's return is imminent as he's looking to get doctor's clearance to play Friday. Matt Niskanen owners lament together.

Lubomir Visnovsky has a concussion, which means Matt Donovan will see some playing time. Keep an eye on Donovan as he has 1G, 1A in five games and was seeing some PP time.

Jordan Eberle (undisclosed) is questionable for tonight's game. EDIT: Eberle is in tonight.

Ryan Smyth is also out with...something. Not sure what.

Expected to miss another week is Anton Khudobin.

Tim Gleason should be back Thursday from a concussion.

Niklas Backstrom's knee strain is feeling better but it remains to be seen whether he or Jish Harding will get Minny's next few starts.

Sounds like Niklas Kronwall (concussion) could be back as soon as tomorrow.

Ville Leino is nearing a return from his cracked rib, so get ready to not put him in your lineup.
