Zach Parise
Wild's Zach Parise: Leaves with injury to eye
Zach Parise, LW, MIN
9:24 PM
News: Parise was forced from Tuesday's game against the Capitals due to an eye injury, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

Parise was clipped by a high stick from Tom Wilson of the Capitals which resulted in a double-minor penalty. On a positive, the Caps cashed in with an Alexander Ovechkin power-play goal. Parise remained in the building, according to Russo, who viewed that as a good sign. We'll update when more information is available.

Analysis: 

Jayson Megna
Canucks' Jayson Megna: Still not in lineup
Jayson Megna, RW, VAN
8:55 PM
News: Megna (upper body) will miss a fourth consecutive game Tuesday against the Ducks.

Megna has just two points in his last 26 games while averaging 13:23 of ice time and that alone could be reason to steer clear in most fantasy formats. He remains without a timetable for return.

Analysis: 

Jiri Hudler
Stars' Jiri Hudler: Out again Tuesday
Jiri Hudler, LW, DAL
6:38 PM
News: Hudler (lower body) is a scratch for Tuesday night's away game against the Canadiens.

Hudler misses his third game in a row and does not have a timetable for return right now. Rookie Remi Elie could continue to see more ice time while Hudler remains on the shelf.

Analysis: 

Nikolay Kulemin
Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Could be lost for the season
Nikolay Kulemin, LW, NYI
6:26 PM
News: Kulemin (upper body) could miss the remainder of the regular season, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Kulemin suffered the injury Friday in Pittsburgh. It was originally thought that he would only miss a game or two but now 2-3 weeks seems a more realistic possibility. If Kulemin is indeed done for season he will finish with 12 goals and 22 points.

Analysis: 

Ben Street
Red Wings' Ben Street: Making first appearance with Detroit
Ben Street, RW, DET
6:00 PM
News: Street is in the lineup Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

The 30-year-old center will play his first game in the NHL this season, and it's well deserved after tearing it up for the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins so far. Street has recorded 54 points over 60 games -- the best on the team. He has had difficulty making the jump to finding a spot in the big league, though, but now could be a chance to prove himself with a struggling Detroit team.

Analysis: 

Kyle Okposo
Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Unlikely to play Tuesday with illness
Kyle Okposo, RW, BUF
4:36 PM
News: Okposo (illness) is doubtful to play Tuesday against the Blue Jackets.

After recently returning from missing 10 games to a rib injury, Okposo will likely watch this one from the sidelines. In the last four games he has played, though, the 28-year-old notched one goal and five assists. If he is unable to play in Columbus, he'll have four days to recover before his next opportunity to play at home against the Islanders.

Analysis: 

Marian Gaborik
Kings' Marian Gaborik: Could be scratched Tuesday
Marian Gaborik, RW, LA
3:25 PM
News: Gaborik is a candidate to be a healthy scratch Tuesday against the Oilers, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Gaborik, who has been a healthy scratch twice this season, checks in with 10 goals and 19 points in 51 games to date, numbers that reflect the fact that the 35-year-old's days as a high-end goal-scorer are behind him.

Analysis: 

Jack Skille
Canucks' Jack Skille: Ankle in bad shape
Jack Skille, RW, VAN
3:23 PM
News: Skille was seen walking around on crutches Tuesday and his injured ankle was quite swollen, Jay Janower of Global BC reports.

The status of Skille's ankle would seem to indicate that he won't suit up for Tuesday night's game and he very well could be out for longer. With an astounding eight Vancouver forwards dealing with injuries of varying severity, defenseman Alex Biega could continue to draw into the lineup as a forward.

Analysis: 

Loui Eriksson
Canucks' Loui Eriksson: Eyeing Friday return
Loui Eriksson, LW, VAN
2:53 PM
News: Eriksson (lower body) could return to the lineup against the Kings on Friday, ruling him out for Tuesday night's contest against the Ducks.

Tuesday's game will represent the 11th consecutive game that Eriksson has missed as a result of this nagging ailment, but it does sound like he'll be able to return before the season's end. Even if he does though, he notched just two points in the eleven games before his injury, so momentum is certainly not on his side in the final stages of the campaign.

Analysis: 

Joel Vermin
Lightning's Joel Vermin: Reassigned to minors
Joel Vermin, RW, TB
2:06 PM
News: Vermin was sent down to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.

Given the Lightning's propensity to shuffle players back and forth between leagues, Vermin's demotion could be a sign that either Tyler Johnson (lower body) or Cedric Paquette (lower body) are close to returning, or it could just be a paper transaction designed to save Tampa Bay some salary-cap dollars. The team doesn't suit up again until Thursday when they play the Red Wings, so more information regarding the potential return of injured players should be forthcoming.
