Fantasy Hockey Injury Updates for Monday

A fantasized look at the NHL injury updates from Sunday

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Ben Bishop appears to be nearing a return to the Tampa Bay lineup. Somehow he was left off the United States Olympic roster and he's probably looking to prove his critics wrong so get him into your lineups pronto. If Tuukka Rask continues to slide Bishop could become a Vezina favourite.

Bench Evander Kane as he'll miss Monday's game with a hand injury. Keep your eye on him as he could explode offensively under Winnepeg's new bench-boss.

Eric Staal will be in the lineup after resting for 3 with an LBI. Hopefully he can provide the Canes with some consistent offense because Lord knows Alexander Semin won't.

Speaking of a Hurricanes player that won't provide any offense, Jiri Tlusty (appendectomy) will return tonight as well.

Michael Cammalleri has been diagnosed with a concussion. You probably won't him very much as he only has a point in his last 8. He's drop worthy.

If the injured Dave Bolland is on your waiver wire you might want to take a look as he's resumed skating and was productive before his surgery.

Hart-trophy threat, Scott Gomez is a healthy scratch tonight. This will surely hurt his chance at shattering Gretzky's records.

As mentioned in the Daily Dosage, Cody Hodgson returned and was immediately productive in Buffalo's lineup.

Your Olympic starter Carey Roberto Luongo will be out tonight against Los Angeles.

Old man Elias is still out of the lineup with total body soreness and will hopefully return at some point during their four game road trip.

Ryan Getzlaf is expected to return on Wednesday after negative x-rays on his foot. He's been a monster so owners are probably breathing a sigh of relief.
