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.

Kris Letang - Pittsburgh Penguins - Defence

Injury: upper-body, day-to-day.

You can count on three things in life-- death, taxes and Kris Letang being injured. The veteran defenceman is questionable to play Friday against the Predators due to an upper-body injury. It doesn’t sound like a serious injury, but most fantasy hockey owners are fighting for a spot in the finals next week, so there’s no time to wait around to see if Letang will suit up. If we don’t get a confirmation by Thursday night that he’s ready to play, drop him. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Ryan Getzlaf - Anaheim Ducks...
