Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The move comes two days after Rask suffered a concussion due to a questionable elbow to the head by Columbus Blue Jackets rookie Emil Bemstrom. He's unlikely to start again until after the All-Star break.

Brendan Lemieux was out there with the rest of his teammates during Wednesday's practice session as he looks to return from a hand injury he suffered back in late December. (Source: Vince Z. Mercogliano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lemieux has not laced up the skates since Dec. 27 and is currently considered day-to-day by head coach David Quinn. The Rangers will continue to monitor his progress in the coming days ahead.

The Penguins star missed 28 games after he had surgery for a core muscle injury on Nov 14. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Prior to the injury, Crosby had 17 points in 17 games. Due to the lengthy absence fantasy players should watch for diminished time on ice and skill level initially.

It is unknown as to whether or not Rangers defenseman Marc Staal will be on the ice for Monday's contest against the New York Islanders. (Source: Vince Z. Mercogliano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Staal was held out of Saturday's game against the Blues with an upper body injury. Head coach David Quinn will have to evaluate how Staal is feeling before he can make a final decision on his defenseman's status.

Pavel Buchnevich is considered to be a game-time decision for Monday's contest against the New York Islanders as he is currently dealing with the flu. (Source: New York Rangers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While Buchnevich has not officially been ruled out yet, he did not participate in Monday's morning practice making his chances of suiting up pretty bleak at this point. Expect to see him absent in Monday's contest. He will attempt to be ready for Thursday's game when the Rangers visit the Islanders in part two of a home-and-home series.
