    Forward Brock Boeser will likely miss the remainder of the NHL season after the team said he will be out 4 to 6 weeks with a back injury.

    With the trade deadline in the rearview mirror, fantasy managers are running low on outs to find value between now and the end of the season - whether you're playing rotisserie or head-to-head. However, finding the right moment to pick up an injured player in which he doesn't languish on your bench, there is still one opportunity for value that never goes away: injuries. More specifically, but you still beat your opponents to him.

    There are still several significant, impact players that have been dropped in some leagues, but may make an appearance in time to help swing your fantasy fortunes before the end of the season.

    The Sabres' season isn't going to continue beyond the end of the regular season, so in theory there is no rush to get Eichel back on the ice. That said, was back on the ice with his teammates by Nov. 24, he's a competitor and he'll do what he can to return to action. Fantasy managers should anticipate a return for the superstar, but when should you reach out and pick him up in leagues where he's become available? When he suffered a high-ankle sprain at the beginning of last season, the same injury he's suffering from now, he began skating on his own in early November 2016, and played his first game of the season on Nov. 29, we can guess he's two weeks away from practicing and then another week until he plays. If he follows the same timeline as last time,Authentic Martin Jones jersey, 2016. With news that he's skating on his own again, which might be time to pick him up before your leaguemates do., that should have him back with the Sabres for the weekend of March 23 or so. Of course,Authentic Brent Burns jersey, no two injuries are the same and this is pure speculation, but it may be worth it if you can sneak Eichel onto your roster for the final eight games of the season. I'd guess that sometime around March 17 we'll get word he's practicing

    Shattenkirk has been skating for a week now,Authentic Alex Pietrangelo jersey, and was off crutches from his mid-January knee surgery by Feb. 7. This certainly sounds like one of the shorter-term meniscus tears we sometimes see from players. We know Shattenkirk has been suffering from this injury all season, but he managed the pain with a cortisone shot to start the campaign. He's potentially returning to a torn-down Rangers roster, but one that can still put the puck in the net and ice a solid power-play unit. If he's been skating for a week,Authentic Vladimir Tarasenko jersey, hopefully watch for news of him practicing again with teammates in the next 10 days, at which point it's time to scoop him up.

    In theory,Authentic Jake Allen jersey, at least, and we're not doubting him. However, Thornton could be just a few days behind Shattenkirk for the same recovery timetable. Of course,Authentic Carter Hutton jersey, we are cancelling out Thornton's advanced age with the fact that he's a freak of nature as an athlete. General manager Doug Wilson expects Thornton back in the mix before the end of the season, even if Thornton matches Shattenkirk's speedy return to action, he's still a week behind from when he had the surgery. Best-case scenario is probably an April return for Thornton, but that still makes him a pretty good pickup for head-to-head championships. There is no getting around the fact that Thornton is 38 years old, though, so maybe wait until we get actual word he's one the ice again before allowing optimism to set in.

    Simmonds is already back practicing with his teammates, putting him on track for a potential return this coming weekend. Now is the time to go see if he was dropped in your league. Nolan Patrick made some noise with his presence on the power play in Simmonds' absence, but don't doubt for a second that Simmonds will get his spot back.

    Nikita Kucherov scored in the fourth round of the shootout Saturday to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 victory against the Montreal Canadiens.

    Kucherov tied it late in the third period with his 34th goal of the season. Tyler Johnson scored his 20th of the season, and Louis Domingue made 27 saves and stopped three of four shooters in the shootout.

    Brayden Point also scored in the shootout for Tampa Bay, his 10th conversion in 15 career shootout attempts.
