Fantasy Hockey Injury Report: October 22
Chris Morais takes a look at some key injuries for the upcoming fantasy hockey week
Welcome back to the Fantasy Hockey Injury Report. Hockey is back, which means injuries are back too. You can’t avoid them, but we can get a head start and plan around them. The injury report will be out every Tuesday to help you plan the rest of your fantasy hockey week. Let’s take a look at which key players are dealing with injuries.
Mikko Rantanen - Colorado Avalanche - Winger
Injury: leg, day-to-day.
It looks like the Colorado Avalanche could be without their best winger for an extended period of time. The 22-year-old exited monday’s game due to a lower-body injury, and did not return. It looks like he suffered an ankle injury, but the team has yet to confirm anything. After watching the replay, it doesn’t look like Rantanen will be ready to go Friday night against the Vegas Golden Knights. Fantasy owners may want to start looking for someone to add off the waiver wire.
Vincent Trocheck - Florida Panthers - Center
Injury: ribs, day-to-day.
