Injuries are starting to really pile up, so here are some tips on who you should consider picking up to replace some of those players out long term.
Nathan MacKinnon was injured in Monday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers and is expected to miss some time. It is nearly impossible to replace a player of MacKinnon's caliber, so you will have to get a player who can fill up some other categories. Nick Bonino is a good player to have in a league with Faceoff wins and Blocks, and will occasionally chip in some points.
Tyler Bertuzzi had surgery on Friday and is expected to miss 6 weeks, this marks the second time this season he has missed extended time this year. Noah Cates is playing on the Flyers 1st line and 1st PP unit and is listed as both a center and Left Winger. Cates is only owned in 1% of Fantasy Leagues and is a player who can stuff the stat sheet and get a little bit of everything.
Jakub Voracek will likely miss the rest of the season with a concussion, so you might want to look for a long-term replacement for him. Dillon Dube is playing on Calgary's 2nd line with Nazem Kadri and Andrew Mangiapane, as well as Calgary's 2nd PP unit. Dube is only owned in 2% of fantasy leagues and has 3 goals, 3 assists, 12 SOG, and 13 Hits in the last two weeks.
Zach Werenski will likely miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, so you should look for a long-term replacement for him. Vladislav Gavrikov is now playing on the 1st D pair and 2nd PP unit, as well as the 1st PK unit. Gavrikov is owned in only 3% of fantasy leagues and has 2 goals, 4 assists, 28 SOG, 25 hits and 48 blocks in the last two weeks.
Kris Letang had a stroke and the timeline for his return is pretty foggy at the moment, so look for a long-term replacement for him. Calen Addison is essentially a Powerplay specialist but that is fine because he has 2 goals, 4 assists, and 4 PPPs in the last 2 weeks. He should continue to produce on the Powerplay as long as he sticks on Minnesota's 1st PP unit.
With Thatcher Demko expected to miss 6 weeks due to a lower-body injury, owners of Demko should seek to pick up his backup in Vancouver, Spencer Martin. Spencer Martin was already cutting starts from Demko before the injury, but now he will get the shot to be the legit number 1 in Vancouver. Martin has 7 wins with a 3.37 GAA and .892 SV% so far this season.
