To little surprise, Shane Doan will miss tonight’s game against the Red Wings. Detroit’s getting better news, though, as Brian Rafalski could be back tonight.

Sadly, the reports regarding Pierre-Marc Bouchard being close to a return from concussion problems seem hasty.

In the interest of injury-related housekeeping, here are two little tidbits. TSN reports that Tomas Plekanec missed tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres with “flu-like” symptoms. In the off-season I said that the Montreal Canadiens basically chose Plekanec and goalie Carey Price over playoff hero Jaroslav Halak. That decision actually is working out well for…

Two hurting superstar goalies won’t see any action tonight, while one of them won’t hit the ice at all this weekend.
Nov 4, 2010, 4:23 PM EST
It sounds like Drew Doughty will indeed play in tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Nov 4, 2010, 12:38 PM EST
You never know with the New Jersey Devils, but it sounds like Martin Brodeur’s injury isn’t too severe.
Nov 1, 2010, 8:41 PM EST
It’s been a surprising first month for winger Zach Parise and the New Jersey Devils. Instead of assuming their typical perch atop the Atlantic Division, the Devils are making themselves comfortable in the league’s cellar. Rather than worrying about re-signing Parise to a contract extension after benefiting from his bargain $3.1 million annual salary cap…

Finally the Buffalo Sabres have some good news to deal with. After having such a rough start to their season, they can take solace in knowing that injured forward Jason Pominville will be back in the starting lineup on Wednesday night. Pominville has been out with a concussion since being the recipient of a hit…

The Canucks will be closer than ever to icing their full lineup of players as Alex Burrows is set to return to action.

If you’re a Penguins fan that’s been frustrated with the team’s start to the season, fear not. Reinforcements are on the way.
Oct 31, 2010, 9:10 PM EST
After dealing with concussion issues, Keith Ballard could be back in a Canucks uniform as early as Monday.

One time Flyers starting goalie Michael Leighton is back on the ice rehabbing his injured back. But will he have a job when he returns to the Flyers lineup?
Oct 30, 2010, 3:24 PM EST
Some might say that the team is better off without him, at least if they just look at wins and losses. They made the playoffs with him playing hurt or missing games completely, then beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the playoffs after Matt Cooke sidelined him with a vicious but clean…

There’s been a mix of good (Ondrej Pavelec) and bad (Bryan Little) injury news so far today, but here are two new positive bits from Canadian teams. First, word from the Ottawa Senators is that dynamic center Jason Spezza should be back after missing four games with a groin injury, according to TSN. Ottawa is…
Oct 30, 2010, 12:59 PM EST
We’ve speculated that Ondrej Pavelec might start for the first time since that scary collapsing incident (and the concussions that resulted from it) this week, but it seems just about official. Chris Vivlamore reports that he will indeed start instead of Chris Mason tonight. Mason won his last two starts, including Friday’s game against the…

Some people thought that Ray Emery would never play hockey again after a rough hip injury, but the eccentric puckstopper hopes to return to the ice some day.
Oct 28, 2010, 10:52 AM EST
Tough news for the Chicago Blackhawks last night, as super-skilled Marian Hossa left Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper body injury. You can see video of the injury at the bottom of this post. Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune caught up with Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, who wasn’t sure about…

Chris Pronger admits that he’s not completely healed from off-season knee surgery. Read more about his troubles after the jump.
Oct 25, 2010, 6:06 PM EST
The Los Angeles Kings were hoping that Drew Doughty would recover enough from concussion problems to return to the ice for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, but that’s not going to happen. In fact, the team apparently placed Doughty on the injured reserve, according to the Los Angeles Times. While that means the all-world…

Good news out of Montreal, although it seems like things are still in the air a bit for valuable defenseman Andrei Markov. TSN has the word on the talented offensive defenseman’s injury status. Andrei Markov was cleared for contact drills Monday and the club will seek final clearance from team doctors later this week. They are…
Oct 25, 2010, 1:51 PM EST
While this afternoon brought about its fair share of bad news, there are at least a couple pockets of sunshine. Take, for instance, the fact that the Atlanta Thrashers activated Ondrej Pavelec from the injured reserve (and sent backup Peter Mannino to the minors) today. As you may remember, Pavelec suffered a concussion after a…

At some point, you almost wonder if the Boston Bruins should consider making hospital scrubs their next alternate uniform. The team is dealing with injuries to key components such as Marc Savard and Marco Sturm and certainly didn’t have an easy time last season. Add another important player to the injured reserve because defenseman Johnny…

A pair of key players for Western Conference contenders are getting close to returning to their teams lineups. In Chicago, defenseman Brian Campbell is back on his skates and working out after injuring his right knee during training camp. Campbell being out of the lineup has thinned things out for the Blackhawks, but they haven’t…

Apparently Chris Pronger is such a destructive physical force that sometimes, he even hurts his own teammates. That happened during the Philadelphia Flyers’ light skate today, as Pronger knocked already-banged-up forward Ville Leino out of practice, according to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly. Now Leino is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.…
