News: Matthias left Tuesday's preseason game against the Flames with an upper-body injury and did not return.

The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but there is a chance that Matthias was held out simply as a precautionary measure. Jets officials will likely provide updates on Matthias' status later this week.

Rangers' Josh Jooris: Leaves game Tuesday with groin injury
Josh Jooris, C, NYR
6:58 PM
News: Jooris suffered a groin injury during Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Islanders and will not return.

It remains unclear how the injury occurred or what the severity of it might be, but the groin injury will at least rule him out for the rest of Tuesday's exhibition matchup. We should see his status updated following the game or within the next few days, so stay tuned for further information regarding his availability moving forward.

Flames' Sean Monahan: Skates solo Tuesday

News: Monahan (back) skated on his own early Tuesday morning, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

Monahan remains day-to-day with his back strain, but his returning to the ice even in a limited capacity should be considered a big step in the rehab process.

Duncan Keith
Blackhawks' Duncan Keith: Minutes to be monitored once healthy
Duncan Keith, D, CHI
2:30 PM
News: Keith will have his minutes managed carefully once he returns from his knee injury, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Keith was the 12th-most utilized defenseman last season, averaging 30.1 shifts and 25:16 of ice time per contest, but the Blackhawks have wisely decided to hold him out of the first four preseason games and put his playing time under a microscope in effort to avoid wear and tear on his knee before the regular season even begins. Keith was quite efficient last season, finding twine nine times to go along with 34 helpers in just 67 games.

Craig Anderson
Senators' Craig Anderson: Will not travel with team
Craig Anderson, G, OTT
1:56 PM
News: Anderson is dealing with a personal issue and will not make the trip to Buffalo on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Anderson is firmly entrenched as the starter in Ottawa and missing Tuesday's preseason contest will not change that. While he was able to notch 31 wins last year, the netminder recorded a dismal 2.78 GAA, which should concern fantasy owners.

Tom Wilson
Capitals' Tom Wilson: Held out of practice Tuesday
Tom Wilson, RW, WAS
1:56 PM
News: Wislon (upper body) was held out of Tuesday's practice, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington reports.

The precautionary measure was taken after Wilson injured himself in Monday's 2-1 OT loss to Carolina. The injury to the 22-year-old power forward does not appear to be serious, but monitor the situation as training camp unfolds.

Niklas Kronwall
Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Upgraded to "day-to-day"
Niklas Kronwall, D, DET
11:48 AM
News: Kronwall (knee) is labeled "day-to-day," per Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

According to this latest report, Kronwall has yet to practice in training camp, though his day-to-day designation suggests that he's making progress. Detroit's blue line is one to avoid from a fantasy perspective, as the projected top-four defensemen collectively failed to reach 100 points last season and the team is expected to rely more on rookies this campaign.

Henrik Zetterberg
Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg: Officially day-to-day with knee injury
Henrik Zetterberg, LW, DET
11:36 AM
News: Zetterberg (knee) is considered "day-to-day," per Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

Zetterberg sustained the knee injury in off-ice training and consequently had to bow out of the World Cup of Hockey. Given his status as a proven veteran, there isn't much incentive to rush Big Z back into the training camp picture. Besides, the "day-to-day" label suggests that his ailment isn't all that serious.

Mark Stone
Senators' Mark Stone: Now skating in rehab from concussion
Mark Stone, RW, OTT
11:20 AM
News: Stone (concussion) resumed skating Tuesday, per Senators coach Guy Boucher, Ian Mendes of TSN1200 reports.

It's an encouraging sign that Stone is back out on the ice. As recently as last Saturday, the Senators announced that the savvy winger is concussed and would be evaluated on a daily basis. Look out for further updates on the 24-year-old as he rounds out his recovery.

Mikhail Sergachev
Canadiens' Mikhail Sergachev: Skating without contact this week
Mikhail Sergachev, D, MON
11:04 AM
News: Sergachev, who is believed to be dealing with a shoulder injury, has been skating all week, albeit with no contact, Brian Wilde of CTV reports.

Sergachev is a smooth-skating rearguard with a non-stop motor and cannon for a shot. The Russian posted 57 points in 67 games to go along with a plus-15 rating with OHL Windsor last season. Moreover, his 31 points on the man advantage led all OHL defensemen. While it appears that the highly touted prospect avoided a concussion at rookie camp last weekend, he reportedly will miss Montreal's first two preseason games. Sergachev should be a popular stash in dynasty leagues.
