NHL Injury Report: Malkin,Hertl,Seidenberg,Parise

The NHL regular season is a long grind and every team gets a visit from the injury bug. There are four injures worth noting.

Pittsburgh Penguins:  Star winger Evgeni Malkin has been placed on IR with a lower-body-injury (RETROACTIVE to December 14th). With Malkin out of commission the Penguins have activated Rob Scuderi. Scuderi has missed the last 29 games with an ankle injury.

* Penguins side note: Injured defenseman Kris Letang is skating without an apparatus on his arm, and seems to have full range of motion.

San Jose Sharks: The waters are churning inside the shark tank. Tomas Hertl suffered a minor knee injury. Look for rookie Matt Nieto to get added ice time in Hertl’s absence.

Boston Bruins: Sorry Bruins fans you will be without Dennis Seidenberg for the rest of the season. Seidenberg suffered a torn ACL on Friday.

Minnesota Wild: The Wild may need to figure out a way to fill the skates of Zack Parise. The latest MRI may have revealed a fracture in his foot. However it doesn’t seem to be the first time. Stress fractures have a 4-6 week recovery time.

* It is worth noting that Parise could play on a stress fracture; it’s a matter of pain tolerance, and future damage to the foot.
