Going Into The Hurt Fantasy Hockey Locker!

He must feel like Goldberg some days.

Fantasy hockey fans, Jonathan Quick is anchored but out of your lineup for at least 4-6 more weeks.

This is the hardest part of fantasy hockey. When you get into those weeks where it just seems the focus is not there. It was a strange week with at least a little less in the volume of new injuries. Let’s get down to business on this “injury light” edition of the fantasy hockey injurecon.

Big problems are looming on the horizon especially with the Jonathan Quick injury. Eventually Ben Scrivens will return to Earth at some point. Also at some point, Mike Smith of the Coyotes will see less shots otherwise he may end up on this list again.

There were 30 new injuries which was down a hair from those high 30′s to low 40′s the past few weeks. Lastly, there were my favorite Injurecons Of The Week.

InjureCon Blues?

Zach Bogosian –D — WPG – Dear god, can this guy stay healthy? That answer is no as he is week to week once again with another malady. InjureCon up to 9.

Mike Green — D — WSH – He is skating which means he is on his way back but how long will it be before Green is injured once again? InjureCon rises to a 9.

Jonathan Quick — G — LAK – Quick will be out at least another 4-6 more weeks with a Grade 2 maybe 3 groin strain. Keep an eye on this as it could be longer yet. InjureCon up to 7.

John Tavares — F — NYI – Tavares was lucky enough to only bump into the sensitive area of an official the other night. That could have been painful and awkward at the same time. However, he is fine but the Islanders are not. InjureCon up to 5.5.

Josh Harding — G — MIN – Maybe the injury is getting close at hand with Harding again as he was yanked the other night then gave up three goals despite the win last night. Something tells me the time may be near. InjureCon steamrolls upward to an 8.

==========================================

That is it for now. See you next week. If you have any fantasy hockey questions at all, just step up and ask them @ChrisWasselTHW.
