Sunday Injury Update
(3/11/12) Here is Sunday's list of fantasy hockey pool injury updates. Corey Perry left during the second period of the Ducks' contest against the Stars on Saturday night with a shoulder injury. X-rays were negative; his status will be updated Monday.
Benoit Pouliot (BOS) was a surprise scratch Saturday with a LBI. His status going forward is up in the air.
Minnesota back-up turned starter, Josh Harding, is expected back in action on Sunday. However, he will likely ride the pine and Matthew Hackett will get the start. Also for Minny, "Hits Machine" Cal Clutterbuck (illness) is not ready yet and will not play Sunday. And, Mikko Koivu (shoulder) was spotted at Wild practice on Saturday wearing a "non contact" jersey. Nonetheless, it's a good sign going forward.
New York Rangers' defenseman Michael Del Zotto will not play Sunday. He aggravated a previous hip injury. Ryan Callahan will also not play due to a bruised foot. Both players are day-to-day. Some good news though: it was tweeted this morning that Brandon Dubinsky (sinus infection) was skating at pre-game practice and should play today.
Lastly, Vancouver forward Andrew Ebbett (collarbone) is back skating and is expected to return to the Canucks' lineup before the end of the year. If you are a believer in last year's President Trophy winners, Ebbett has low-tier fantasy relevance in 2012 playoff pools.
