Injury Roundup: Flames and Wings Hit by Injuries

USATSI_8318392_154224518_lowresThe injury bug has bit a few teams this week. Some teams are getting, or are close to getting some players back to lineup. We’ll go through a quick injury updated on players who are out, and who could be returning soon.

The Flames have lost center Mikael Backlund for at least four weeks with a sprained MCL. Center/left winger Michael Cammalleri has been bothered by a hip flexor and is listed as day-to-day. All-Star goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was placed on the IR, retroactive to February 5th. He’s able to return to the lineup next week. Leland Irving will take over the starting duties for the time being.

The Red Wings continue to be hammered with injuries. Todd Bertuzzi is the latest Red Wing to go down. He’s out indefinitely with a sore back. Darren Helm is already out with a back injury and will begin his rehab on Monday. They are also without defensemen Carlo Colaiacovo (mid-Feb return) and Brendan Smith (out a month), both with shoulder injuries.

The Avalanche are hoping to get captain Gabriel Landeskog back skating soon. He’s been out with a head injury/concussion since January 19th.

The Oilers have lost forward Anton Lander for at least a month with a broken foot. They are already without center Shawn Horcoff down the middle.

Penguins defenseman Kris Letang isn’t travelling with the team. He is out with a lower-body injury.

The Flyers are expected to have winger Wayne Simmonds back in the lineup today, who has been out about a week.

The Blues may get goalie Jaroslav Halak back early next week. He has been skating and expects to take some shots today.

Sharks defenseman Brent Burns will be back “very soon” according to head coach Todd McLellan. Burns hasn’t played at all this season. He’s on the IR, so the Sharks would have to make a roster move before activating him.

Maple Leafs Carl Gunnarsson is on the IR, a move that may allow 4th liner Mike Brown to get back into the lineup this weekend.

The Jets Zach Bogosian is getting close to returning from his wrist injury. He’s been testing it out in practice, and did travel with the team to Ottawa. The Jets are also without Dustin Byfuglien (undisclosed injury) and Antti Miettinen (upper-body).
