Welcome to another edition of the Fantasy Hockey Injury Report. Every week, we will discuss some key injuries around the league and how they may affect your fantasy hockey team.  It’s never easy to deal with the injury bug, but it doesn’t have to be the demise of your fantasy hockey team. Let’s take a look at who’s dealing with what this week!


Troy Terry - Anaheim Ducks - Upper-body

Anaheim forward Troy Terry is expected to miss at least one game due to an upper-body injury. He was injured in Monday’s game against Dallas and was forced to leave the game. Terry is one of the best players on the team, so losing him would leave a huge hole in Anaheim’s offense. The team is calling him day-to-day, so there is a chance he returns to action before the end of the week.

Tage Thompson - Buffalo Sabres - Upper-body

Buffalo Forward Tage Thompson is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury and his status for this weekend is still up in the air. Buffalo doesn’t play until Saturday, so we should get an update on Tompson’s condition at some point this week. The injury doesn’t sound serious, so he may not miss any time, which would be good news for the team and for fantasy owners.

Auston Matthews - Toronto Maple Leafs - Knee

Toronto forward Auston Matthews is expected to be out of the lineup for at least three weeks due to a knee sprain. He suffered the injury just before the All-Star break and the team is going to give their talented centreman all the time in the world to heal and come back strong. Matthews hasn’t been scoring as much this season as in previous ones, so maybe some time off will do him some good.

Robert Thomas - St. Louis Blues - Lower-Body

St. Louis Blues centerman Robert Thomas is expected to be able to play on Saturday when the team faces the Arizona Coyotes. Thomas hasn’t played since January 26th, so this is certainly good news for the team and for fantasy owners. There is a small chance that he isn’t ready to go, but all signs point to him playing.

Jonathan Toews - Chicago Blackhawks - Illness

Jonathan Toews is expected to miss at least one game due to a non-COVID illness. Toews has been in rumor talks since the beginning of the season about being traded, so any time he misses is not good news. He probably won’t miss Friday’s game, so this looks like just a one-time thing for the captain.
