NHL Injury Update: Stamkos, Gaborik, Alfredsson, Tanguay


Here is an injury update for November 16.

Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steven Stamkos is wearing a cast that will help him start his rehab program. He had successful surgery after suffering a broken tibia in his right leg Monday afternoon in Monday’s game against the Boston Bruins. There is no timetable for his return yet.

Columbus Blue Jackets’ Marian Gaborik will be missing the next four to six weeks with a sprained knee. Gaborik has five goals and six assists in 17 games this season. He was injured in the 3-2 overtime loss to the Boston Bruins Thursday night.

Red Wings’ Daniel Alfredsson will miss some time with a groin injury. Luke Glendening is likely to be called up if Alfredsson can’t play against the New York Islanders. The Red Wings play the Islanders Saturday Night in New York.

Colorado Avalanche’s Alex Tanguay is out indefinitely after suffering a knee injury on November 2. Head coach Patrick Roy had announced that day that he was injured, hoping he would be out for only two weeks. The Avalanche were 11-1-0 with Tanguay on the roster.
