Welcome to the Fantasy Hockey Injury Report. Once a week, we’ll take a look at some injuries around the league that may affect your fantasy hockey team. Injuries will always happen and you can’t predict when, but it’s important to be ready for the aftermath and to have a plan ready. Let’s take a look and some players who are on the shelf for the upcoming week and beyond.

Brandon Sutter - Vancouver Canucks - Center

Injury: Shoulder, four-to-six weeks.

 

Just as the Canucks were starting to get healthy, Brandon Sutter goes down with a shoulder injury. It seems like the Canucks just can’t catch a break. Elias Pettersson is likely to step into that top line center role, so that’s good news if you’re a Pettersson owner. For Sutter owners, it’s a long stay on IR. A separated shoulder is a tough injury to recover from because it’s all about regaining strength back in the shoulder. Let’s hope it’s closer to four weeks and not six.

Jonathan Quick - Los...
