In the last week, we have seen 39 new injuries but out of those, three were personal and several are suspected to have the flu or illness. Obviously the Steven Stamkos injury is very significant but people need to realize there are just so many maladies in the fantasy world that plugs have to be filled in so many places it seems. The more you keep an eye on the whole picture, the better off you will be.

Injury Additions?

Jonathan Quick — G — Los Angeles:  Quick left late in OT against Buffalo with a rather apparent groin injury. Consider him day to day for now.

Anton Volchenkov — D — New Jersey:  Volchenkov went down early against the New York Rangers with what is believed to be a lower body injury

Craig Anderson — G — Ottawa:  One has to wonder if he is 100% after giving up five goals to the Flyers of all teams. I am definitely not a doctor but a few of those goals he did not look all right.

There were a lot of near misses tonight as well so keep this in mind because in the NHL, you never know.

Enter The InjureCon?

Tim Thomas — G — Florida:  Thomas is a walking injury waiting to happen at the age of 39. That lower body just does not move the way it wants to sometimes. InjureCon: 8.5.

Jason Spezza — C — Ottawa – There is something that could be wrong but it just seems something is a bit off with Spezza lately. We’ll keep an eye on it. InjureCon: 6.

Ryan McDonagh — D — NY Rangers – McDonagh took a few more hits than he is usually accustomed to and while there is no specific injury….it just seems like an injury is more possible now. InjureCon: 5.5
