The 31 NHL teams are allowed to have a maximum of 23 players on the roster, with a minimum of 20 players. Of those 20, each club must have two active goaltenders and 18 skaters which consists of forwards and defensemen. The battle of attrition in this league is real and NHL injuries are a huge factor in sports betting.

The NHL Injury Report is listed in alphabetical order by Team Name and Mascot. Not every club is always listed, since some teams are fortunate to be healthier than others. Within the teams, Players are listed by first and last names before their Position. The Date section tells the bettor when the individual became inactive due to injuries.

The actual NHL Injury report is very specific to each player and the Comments provide great insight on what happened to the individual. Along with the injuries, the report provides an NHL Injury Status feature that covers league suspensions. The majority of those are focused on NHL players that either used substances or drugs not allowed by the league.

The Expected Return is another great NHL Injuries feature that shows when the player could be back on the ice for his club. Players placed on the Injured Reserve or better known as IR will have their date of return at the very end of the season, meaning they won’t be playing at all.


The NHL Injury Reports are always changing on a daily and weekly basis throughout the season. It’s rare to see NHL players participate in a full 82-game season these days especially when you calculate the travel and grueling ice time for some.

Using all the information available on VegasInsider, you should be able to find an edge when betting on hockey. If sports gambling is legal in your state, review today's injury information and check out our online sportsbook directory to find the best NHL bets and exclusive sportsbook offers.

Staying on top of the key players in the NHL Injury Reports can certainly help bettors get an edge on their bookmakers. Wagering on a team when an All-Star caliber player is removed from a lineup certainly won’t help your chances to win and if multiple top-line players come down with NHL injuries, then you cold be in serious trouble.

The goaltender in the NHL is often deemed as the most important position and not having your best net-minder between the pipes can affect betting. Just a decade ago, it was common to see goalies start over 70 games in an NHL regular season. These days, you’re lucky to see a keep suit up for more than 60 games. Load management is upon us and the teams have more than one reliable goalie on their roster and bettors should keep that in mind when looking at NHL Injuries since overreactions do happen.
