NHL Injury Updates
Eric Stephens: Anaheim Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm is eligible to be activated from the IR on Thursday but it’s not known if he will be. His lower-body injury has been a lingering issue since the last week of October.
Joe Haggerty: Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk (lower-body) appears unlikely for Tuesday’s game. They are hopeful that he’ll be ready for the weekend’s game against the Maple Leafs.
Forward David Backes is feeling better but there is no further update.

Defenseman John Klingberg is out two to four weeks with a lower-body injury. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Defenseman Roman Polak (sternum) could play on this road trip.
- George Richards: Weegar took a shot off the side of his head and needed help from the trainer to get off the ice.
The Leafs are able to place him on the LTIR which will help alleviate their salary cap issues for the time being.
- Jonas Siegel: Marner will miss at least their next 12 games.
