Rick Nash
Rangers' Rick Nash: Has groin injury
Rick Nash, LW, NYR
2:15 AM
News: Nash tweaked his groin in Tuesday's game, NHL.com's Brian Compton reports.

He departed after just 8:13 of ice time thanks to the ailment -- a tough break, considering he was in the midst of a highly active offensive effort (five shots). Nash has been enjoying a bounce-back season after last year's disastrous campaign, so Rangers fans and fantasy owners alike will surely hope this injury turns out to be a minor one.

Brent Seabrook
Blackhawks' Brent Seabrook: Injures upper body Tuesday
Brent Seabrook, D, CHI
12/6/2016
News: Seabrook sustained an upper-body injury in Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

It's unclear exactly how or when the ailment occurred but given it forced the blueliner out for the end of the contest, it would be worth monitoring prior to the Blackhawks upcoming matchup with the Rangers on Friday. The 31-year-old tallied his 14th assist over 10:29 of ice time prior to his departure.

Julius Honka
Stars' Julius Honka: Exits Tuesday's contest with upper-body ailment
Julius Honka, D, DAL
12/6/2016
News: Honka exited Tuesday's game against the Flames with an upper-body injury and will not return, Mike Heika of Dallas Morning News reports.

It's unclear what the nature and severity of the ailment is but considering he won't return to the contest, his status for the Stars' upcoming matchup with the Predators on Thursday appears questionable. The 21-year-old blueliner logged 10:40 of ice time over 11 shifts prior to his departure.

Marc Methot
Senators' Marc Methot: Out for Wednesday's game
Marc Methot, D, OTT
12/6/2016
News: Methot (lower body) will not play in Wednesday's contest against the Sharks, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.

Methot is close to returning to the ice, but the Sens are playing it safe and allowing the blueliner to recover fully. The next contest for Ottawa is Saturday against the Kings.

David Desharnais
Canadiens' David Desharnais: Leaves Tuesday's contest with lower-body ailment
David Desharnais, C, MON
12/6/2016
News: Desharnais exited Tuesday's game against the Blues with a lower-body injury and will not return, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

It's unclear when or how Desharnias sustained the ailment but given it was announced he won't return to the contest, it could be on the serious side. The 30-year-old center logged 13:29 of ice time prior to his departure. There will likely be an update on the Quebec-native's availability prior to the Habs next matchup against the Devils on Thursday.

Analysis: 

Alexander Burmistrov
Jets' Alex Burmistrov: Leaves game Tuesday
Alexander Burmistrov, C, WPG
12/6/2016
News: Burmistrov left Tuesday's game against the Red Wings with an upper-body injury and will not return.

It's unclear at this point how Burmistrov sustained the injury, but more details should surface after the game. The 25-year-old pivot has no goals and is seeing only 11:19 of average ice time this season, so even if he does miss time it's not likely to affect the majority of fantasy owner.

Analysis: 

Bobby Ryan
Senators' Bobby Ryan: Could return Wednesday
Bobby Ryan, RW, OTT
12/6/2016
News: Ryan (hand) practiced Tuesday and could possibly be ready to return to the lineup for Wednesday night's game in San Jose, Dean Brown of TSN 1200 reports.

While Ryan remains on injured reserve for the time being, the fact that he practiced Tuesday is undoubtedly good news and even if he doesn't play Wednesday, he'll likely be back shortly thereafter. The 29-year-old winger's play has been massively disappointing this season with only eight points in the 21 games he has played, so he'll look to get back on track once he returns.

Analysis: 

Curtis Lazar
Senators' Curtis Lazar: Headed to injured reserve
Curtis Lazar, RW, OTT
12/6/2016
News: Lazar (upper body) is on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Turns out Lazar's injury is serious enough to warrant a trip to IR and he will stay there until at least Dec. 14 when the Senators take on the Sharks. However, Bobby Ryan (hand) appears to be nearing a return, so Lazar could be sent back down to the minors before that time.

Analysis: 

Philip Larsen
Canucks' Philip Larsen: Exits Tuesday's contest on stretcher
Philip Larsen, D, VAN
12/6/2016
News: Larsen left Tuesday's game against the Devils on a stretcher and will not return, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

Larsen was hit hard along the boards by Taylor Hall early in the road contest. He lay unconscious on the ice before leaving the ice on a stretcher and being taken to the hospital. The Canucks will likely release more information on the 26-year-old blue liner's status after he undergoes medical evaluation. Until further notice, his status for the team's upcoming matchup Thursday against the Lightning is questionable.

Analysis: 

Mark Fayne
Oilers' Mark Fayne: Leaves Tuesday's game with mystery ailment
Mark Fayne, D, EDM
12/6/2016
News: Fayne exited Tuesday's game against the Sabres with an undisclosed injury and will not return, Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal reports.

It's unclear when or how Fayne sustained the ailment but given he won't return to the road contest, his availability for the Oilers' next matchup with the Flyers on Thursday is questionable. The 29-year-old blueliner has never produced more than 20 points in an NHL season so even when healthy, he's not the best option in fantasy formats.
