Sheet Player News (Dec. 27)

An injury update was provided for Box 7 forward David Moss of the Calgary Flames, as he underwent surgery this week to repair a hairline fracture in his ankle, which has kept the forward out since mid-November, but on a day-to-day basis. Unfortunately, Moss' injury was not getting any better with rest or rehab, so surgery was the next best option.  I would imagine that the magic number for Moss would be about six weeks, give or take a couple weeks, so I wouldn't be expecting him around too soon.  In 15 games, Moss has 5 points, 1 goal and 4 assists.

An undisclosed injury on Tuesday morning has Chris Phillips unable to play for the Senators, as they take on the Canadiens at home tonight. It does appear to be an injury of some sorts that will end his iron man streak that reached 311 games. Phillips was reportedly hurt in Carolina before the break and will be listed as out day-to-day for the time being.  In 36 games this season, Phillips has picked up 9 assists and is a middle-of-the-road option in Box 29 this season.

A touch of the flu was enough to keep Blues forward Jamie Langenbrunner out of their return to action after the Christmas break on Monday night, as they took on one of his former clubs, the Dallas Stars. It is believed to be a day-to-day thing, but his availability for Tuesday night's game in Detroit may still be up in the air, given that it is only 24 hours since he was held out of the line-up the first time.  In 34 games, the Box 8 forward has 2 goals and 10 assists, which is drop-worthy in the box, according to the player you may want to have instead, Jiri Hudler.
