Hockey Hospital: Islanders Hurt By Loss of Travis Hamonic

Paul Stastny is one of several injured players for the St. Louis Blues.

Welcome back to Hockey Hospital, bringing you the injury updates during the trade deadline week… wait, the trade deadline hasn’t passed yet? It wasn’t last week? Then why were there so many trades? It’s been a while since we’ve seen a trade.

Paul Stastny, C, St. Louis Blues: An upper-body injury forced Stastny out of Friday’s games and sidenlined him on Tuesday — one of several key Blues MIA for this contest. Unfortunately, Coach Ken Hitchcock has revealed that Stastny is now considered week-to-week (see video below).

James van Riemsdyk, LW, Toronto Maple Leafs: van Riemsdyk will be out of the lineup for around 6-to-8 weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his left foot.

Even though the Leafs traded away Phil Kessel, JVR has actually been scoring at a similar pace to past seasons. In 40 games, van Riemsdyk is leading the Leafs in scoring with 14 goals and 15 assists, putting him on pace to come close to 60 points. This injury also negatively affects the owners of Tyler Bozak and P.A. Parenteau, both of whom are enjoying solid seasons but will likely find it difficult to maintain that level without van Riemsdyk in the lineup.

As of now, Josh Leivo has been called up from the minors to slide into the lineup.

Colin Wilson, C, Nashville Predators: Wilson is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, skipping Tuesday’s game. He also sat on Saturday, but could be back on Thursday.

Patrik Elias, LW, New Jersey Devils: Elias will be out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his right knee. The Devils have really struggled to stay healthy this season and they’ve been spinning their wheels a bit lately as the Penguins begin to come on and close the gap.

Nick Foligno, LW, Columbus Blue Jackets: After getting hit in the head by Brad Malone during Friday’s game, Foligno was placed on injured reserve by the Blue Jackets.

Believe it or not, Foligno was actually doing really well before he got injured. The All-Star had 18 points in the last 20 games and had registered a point in eight straight. With Ryan Johansen being dealt from Nashville and Foligno now out, the Blue Jackets may have a hard time scoring.

At least Foligno’s injury shouldn’t have much of an impact on the recent scoring streak of Alexander Wennberg. Wennberg has been collecting a lot of points lately and shouldn’t see a dip in production because of Foligno’s absence. Wennberg can still play next to Scott Hartnell and Brandon Saad.

Jannik Hansen, RW, Vancouver Canucks: Hansen was placed on injured reserve because of a back injury. This is really a shame as he’s been a nice surprise this season, pairing with the Sedin twins on the Canucks’ top line.

Drew Miller, LW, Detroit Red Wings: Miller will be out of action for at least a month with a torn meniscus. He has limited Fantasy value as a penalty killing specialist, but whatever traction he may have gained after just returning two games ago from a broken jaw is now gone.

Travis Hamonic, D, New York Islanders: Hamonic will be on the shelf for 2-to-3 weeks because of a lower-body injury.

First Johnny Boychuk went down, and now Hamonic. The Islanders just can’t seem to catch a break and they’ll need all the help they can get to remain in a playoff spot. The team seems to be treading water right now. Scott Mayfield has been called up from the minors but we wouldn’t expect him to hold too much Fantasy value. With Nick Leddy still in the fold, Mayfield will likely receive limited minutes.

Shayne Gostisbehere, D, Philadelphia Flyers: Gostisbehere is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

With Gostisbehere out, Mark Streit took most of the power play time. Normally this would be a good thing for Streit owners but since Ghosty is expected to be back quickly (he’s back practicing now), there’s a good chance Streit doesn’t keep the spot on the number one power play spot for long.

Aaron Ekblad, D, Florida Panthers: Ekblad was unable to participate in Monday’s game because of an upper-body (head) injury suffered during Sunday’s game. There is no timetable for his return. He’ll miss his second straight game on Wednesday.

Jeff Petry, D, Montreal Canadiens: Petry missed Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury, but expected to be in the lineup on Wednesday.

Jay Bouwmeester, D, St. Louis Blues: Bouwmeester is week-to-week after leaving Friday’s game early — one of three Blues to go down in that game.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what Fantasy hockey injuries you’re dealing with and how you’re adjusting.

The Wire Troll: Alex Killorn Moving On Up

March 9, 2014 | by Chris Wassel | Comments Comments Off
It is a rare case when there is a double nine on the weekend. What is a double nine? Simply, it’s when Sunday means as much as Saturday. This was a phrase we coined about 15 years ago when we used it to win a Fantasy hockey league on the last day because we checked schedules well in advance. Believe us, when we say it pays off.

The Wire Troll: Jamie McGinn on Fire

March 18, 2012 | by Chris Wassel | Comments Comments Off
McGinn has risen in Fantasy leagues because of a second straight hot week. At press time, the left winger had put up seven goals in his last seven games. How much more on fire can you get? McGinn’s ownership rate went up a whopping 34.1 percentage points in ESPN leagues and a comparable amount in Yahoo! leagues. Is he a potential 25-goal scorer? With the right ice time, he sure is and even before this hot stretch, the Avalanche winger would have come pretty close to 20 goals. Either way, add McGinn for the stretch if you still can.

The Wire Troll: Tuomo Ruutu Returns to Action

March 11, 2012 | by Chris Wassel | Comments (1)
Ruutu returned to action Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Though you may want to give him a couple games to get back in the swing of things, insert him into your lineup anyway because 17 goals in 57 games translates to a respectable 25 over a 82-game schedule. Ruutu is owned in 25-to-30 per cent of Fantasy hockey leagues, but his shots on goal, hits and point potential is at least a good reason to consider an add. Playoff runs are won on depth guys at this point and the multiple positional eligibility is a huge boost for GMs.
