2019 Fantasy Hockey Injury Report: January 8
Christopher Morais takes a look around the NHL and gives his take on the top injuries around the league.
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.
Shea Weber - Montreal Canadiens - Defence
Injury: face, day-to-day.
All Montreal Canadiens fans want for 2019 is a healthy Shea Weber. The Habs captain left last night’s game against the Wild in the first period after getting struck in the cheek by a puck.The good news is head coach Claude Julien has confirmed that Weber will make the trip to Detroit. He wouldn’t confirm if he would play, but just traveling with the team is a good start. We should have an update on his status for tonight’s game after practice.
Mackenzie Blackwood -New Jersey Devils - Goalie
Injury: lower-body, day-to-day.
