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.

Antti Raanta - Arizona Coyotes - Goalie

Injury: unspecified, day-to-day.

Antti Raanta has already missed time this season due to injury and his status for tonight’s game is up in the air due to an “unspecified” injury. No one knows when the injury occured, but it’s enough to fantasy owners on the edge of their seats. With Darcy Kuemper already on IR due to a lower-body injury, this would be very bad timing for Raanta to miss any extended period of time. We should have more information after morning skate.

Carl Hagelin - Los Angeles Kings - Winger

Injury: MCL sprain, four-to-six weeks.

The Kings should just cancel their entire season. Newly acquired forward Car Hagelin has been ruled out four-to-six weeks with a knee injury. He wasn’t fantasy hockey relevant, but he’s another body on the shelf for a L.A team that has seen their fair share of injuries this season. It looks like Kyle Clifford will take his spot on the second line, but no one expects that experiment to last long.

Roberto Luongo - Florida Panthers - Goalie

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

Luongo has now missed three games in a row and we still don’t have much information about his injury or when he might return. He’s still listed on the team’s website as day-to-day, but if he doesn’t return soon, this could turn into a week-to-week injury. It hasn't been easy for Luongo owners in fantasy, but he’s still worth holding onto in all league formats. Maybe his age is starting to catch up to him, but for now, it’s best to take the “wait and see” approach about before considering dropping him.

Kyle Turris - Nashville Predators - Center

Injury: upper-body, out indefinitely.

Really tough blow for the Predators losing Kyle Turris for an extended period of the time. The centerman was put on IR late last week with an upper-body injury. Turris took a hard hit into the boards in Friday’s game against St. Louis and did not return. He now joins P.K Subban and Viktor Arvidsson on the injury reserved list, making his loss that much more impactful. Hopefully this isn’t a shoulder injury that requires surgery and that Turris can make a return sooner rather than later. If your fantasy league doesn’t have an IR spot, Turris is droppable in most shallow leagues.

Matt Murray - Pittsburgh Penguins - Goalie

Injury: lower-body, out indefinitely.

It has not been a great season for Matt Murray. The Pittsburgh netminder has an ugly 4.08 GAA and a .830SV% this season, so maybe this lower-body injury has something to do with that. The team has decided to give Murray some rest to see if that helps heal this mystery injury, but the team has said that they expect their starting goalie to be out “long-term.” For fantasy owners, this is a blessing. The 24-year-old is pretty much droppable in shallow leagues. It’s not ideal, but no one knows how many weeks he will miss due to this injury and how good he will be once he’s back. He has no trade value and he’s not worth clogging up an IR spot for multiple weeks. Maybe in deeper league you can hold onto him a bit longer, but that’s about as far as it goes.
