Welcome to another edition of the Fantasy Hockey Injury Report. The injury report is going to keep you up to date on all the important injuries going on around the league, and how that might affect your fantasy hockey team. Make sure to check back regularly for any updates. Let’s take a look at some players that are either ruled out or that we need to monitor.

Jakub Chychrun - Arizona Coyotes - Lower-body

Jakub Chychrun has missed the last six games due to a lower-body injury and is still considered week-to-week. He hurt himself on March 12th against the Boston Bruins and hasn’t played since. The Coyotes are well out of a playoff spot and Chychrun has been a disappointment this season. If you can hold onto him for another week, do so, but if not, you can move on from him.

Jeff Petry - Montreal Canadiens - Lower-body

Jeff Petry injured himself against the Florida Panthers on Thursday and is out indefinitely. We know that it’s a lower-body injury and that it could end his season. It’s been a rough year for the veteran blueliner, so we may have seen him for the last time in a Habs uniform. This doesn’t sound like a short-term injury, so in redraft leagues, you can go ahead and drop him.

Miro Heiskanen - Dallas Stars - Illness *UPDATE*

Miro Heiskanen was diagnosed with mononucleosis and was expected to miss the remainder of the season, but now, it looks like he could be back in the lineup as early as Tuesday against Anaheim. That is quite the turn of events in just seven days, but it’s great news for everyone involved. If you still own him in season-long, keep doing so. If he’s on the waiver wire, make sure to go add him.


Travis Konecny - Philadelphia Flyers - Lower-body

Flyers forward Travis Konecny did not play in Friday’s game against Colorado and is considered day-to-day. He’s listed as day-to-day, so the expectation is that this won’t be a long absence. Konecny has been decent this season, considering how bad the Flyers as a team are. We should get another update Sunday on his condition and if he will be able to play in that game. He has 42-points in 62-games this season.

Evgeni Malkin - Pittsburgh Penguins - Illness

Penguins centerman Evgeni Malkin was unable to play in Friday’s game against the New York Rangers due to illness. The team has said it’s a non-COVID illness, so maybe he just had some bad sushi. Pittsburgh is back in action on Sunday, so hopefully, the veteran can return to the lineup for that game.

Torey Krug - St. Louis Blues - Upper-body

Blues defenceman Torey Krug is dealing with an upper-body injury and is considered week-to-week. He injured himself on March 22nd against the Washington Capitals and hasn’t been seen on the ice since. A week-to-week injury at this time in the season is rough for fantasy owners who don’t have a bench spot available. The team hasn’t moved him to IR, so maybe he can return to the lineup towards the end of next week? Look for another update on his status in the coming days.

Laurent Brossoit - Vegas Golden Knights - Undisclosed

The Vegas Golden Knights just can’t seem to escape the injury bug. Already without Robin Lehner, the team may also be without Laurent Brossoit for the next couple of days. He hasn’t played a game since March 15th, but he has been able to serve as the backup goalie in most of those games. Now he can’t even do that. He’s hasn’t been great this season, but he was probably a popular waiver wire target with Lehner on the sidelines. Hopefully, he can return to the lineup early next week.
