Now that the NHL is back, is there a source we can use for updated injuries?
Most sites do not have this updated and well I use twitter but there is no database or list, just odds and ends.
With a shortened season I can't afford to have injured players in my line-up.
Any info will be greatly appreciated.

F- Crosby,Malkin,Marleau,Krejci,Neal,Tavares,Fillipul a,Stafford.Stepan
D- Keith,Lidstrom,Goligoski,Letang,Phaneuf,Carlson,Ty tuin
I've found that the quickest and most up-to-date site for injury news is rotoworld.com
That said, there isn't any info on Backstrom so I would hazard a guess and say that our best option at this point is to comb the forums in the hopes that someone overseas has more up-to-date info than we do!
28 team, pts only, Keep 9
Start 9 fwd, 4D, 1G

If possible, I would hold off until the guys get into training camp. I would imagine that all players will need to do a physical upon arrival. Once that happens, teams will be posting that information to the league which will in turn pass down to the various sites. As you mentioned, I haven't heard much of anything other than the odd bit coming out of Europe and whatever can been extracted from the AHL/CHL. I have one pool where I've got Backstrom, Gaborik and Burns. None of them appear ready to start the season.

Injury issues to be aware of before the season starts.
Just wondering if you guys can think of any injury issues that could be important to know about before the season starts. I figure with the shortened season any injuries could have tremendous fantasy impacts because if a player misses 10 games then thats 1/5 of the season not 1/8.
I've included some players who may be ready to play just so people are aware their issue is resolved.
Nathan Horton - Concussion - Cleared to play
Adam McQuaid - Surgery to remove blood clot/Treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome - Out Indefinitely
Nathan Gerbe - Spine Surgery - ? (Takes 6 months to heal. 2 weeks ago he began skating)
Roman Cervenka - Blood clots - will not be ready for training camp
Jiri Hudler - Lacerated Neck - Should be ready for the beginning of the season.
Tuomo Ruutu - Hip Surgery - May
Marian Hossa - Concussion - Cleared for contact
Anze Kopitar - Right Knee - 2-3 weeks
Jonathan Quick - Back Surgery - ? (Seeking Clearance)
Drew Doughty - Fat and Out of Shape - 200mi on the treadmill
Adam Henrique - torn ulnar collateral ligament in left thumb - 3-4 weeks of rehab still
New York Islanders
Travis Hamonic - Concussion - TBD (feeling better early last week and is to resume skating Monday or Tuesday)
Michael Grabner - Abdominal muscle tear - ?
New York Rangers
Michael Del Zotto - mild back stiffness - Shouldn't be a problem
Rick Nash - Aggravated Groin - Ready to play
Marian Gaborik - Offseason Shoulder Surgery - Ready to play
Carl Hagelin - Shoulder - Ready to play
Danny Briere - Wrist injury - 2 weeks from 12/31
Andrej Meszaros - Achilles - "Could miss start of season"
Brent Burns - Hernia Surgery - TBD
Jake Gardiner - Concussion - TBD
Ryan Kesler - Left shoulder surgery/Left wrist surgery - No timeframe
Nicklas Backstrom - Bruised Neck - DTD
Zach Bogosian - Wrist Surgery - 4-6 months (1/15 would mark about 4 months)

Briere was injured just before January and they said 2-3 weeks for him.
Kopitar is said to be out 2-3 weeks from yesterday.
Backstrom is still out, no word on a time table.
That's for my team. Who else is banged up?

G: Bryzgalov Pavelec Holtby Neuvirth Nihlstorp Lack CalPickard Andersen Stalock Sateri Eriksson
This is a good idea letangarang - my cash pool's commish just announced our draft for the 14th and something like this would be tremendously helpful for people like me who've been out of the loop.
If you're inclined, you should reformat the OP up to with a listing of players injured and ETA's so that people on the forum have easy access instead of reading through various threads.
T. Ruutu is out for most of the regular season.
Z. Bogosian is still recovering from what I understand.
All I can think of right now...
Brent Burns (hernia surgery, TBD)
Jake Gardiner (Concussion, out indefinitely)
Travis Hamonic (concussion, TBD)
Adam Henrique (thumb, 3-4 weeks)
Anze Kopitar (Knee, 3-4 weeks)
Adam McQuaid (Thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, out indefinitely)
Jonathan Quick (back, out indefinitely)
Tuomo Ruutu (Hip surgery, out until April)
Ryan Kesler (?)
