Fantasy Hockey Injury News for Friday

The fantasized injury news on a Friday morning

Bruce Bennett

Is this our first major injury to a star this season???... Jason Spezza is expected to be out for at least two months and could miss the rest of the season due to back surgery... that hurts.

Dustin Byfuglien tweaked something in yesterday's morning skate and couldn't go last night. We don't have many details on what or how bad this is, so stay tuned.

Patrice Bergeron was banged up last night but was able to finish the game after getting boarded. We'll monitor this for ya.

Mark Fayne is day-to-day with an arm injury. He'll probably be back in there shortly.

This shouldn't really be affecting your team but Adrian Aucoin is day-to-day with a LBI.

Ed Jovanovski is expected to miss a few games after hurting his knee the other night.

Shawn Horcoff has a sore neck and sat out last night's game. Sounds like it shouldn't keep him out for long as he says he could have played last night if it was a playoff game.

Wade Redden couldn't go last night due to influenza.

Scottie Upshall was a question mark coming into last night's game due to a LBI and he either aggravated it or acquired a new injury as he left the game favouring his right leg after a fight.

Good news for Phoenix here as Mike Smith (LBI) is expected to return to the net on tonight.

Justin Faulk (UBI) is also expected to return tonight after missing the Canes last game.

Returning to action from the injured list last night: Marcel Goc, Adam Henrique & Dan Boyle
