The list of fantasy hockey injured forwards in 2023-24 is stated in the table below.
Hintz had an average draft position (ADP) of 52 starting the new fantasy season. He was drafted in the sixth round, which is a significant improvement as he was selected in the 8th or 9th round last year.
Despite his productive career, Roope is one of the underrated players. He stood as the 21st overall for forwards in fantasy points last season.
The Dallas Stars forward didn't attend the practice session in September followed by an upper-body injury. Rumors suggest that Hintz will be unable to play in the season-opening game against the St. Louis Blues.
He is still missing team practice sessions due to his injury. However, he has been skating on his own and should be playing for the team soon.
Since no updates have been released about Hintz returning to the game, he will possibly miss some of the early NHL regular season games.
The Finnish player had a fantastic season in 2022-23 registering 37 goals and 38 assists appearing in 73 games. In the playoffs, he made an impressive record of 10 goals and 14 assists.
For the first 20 games of his season, he managed above a point per game. On 29 November 2022, Hintz signed an 8-year contract extension for $67.6 million with the Stars.
Logan Couture has an average draft position of 190 in most of the drafts. The captain of the San Jose Sharks is suffering a lower-body injury.
The centerman will be reportedly missing the Sharks' season-opening match versus the Vegas Golden Knights. It is the first time that Logan is about to miss the first game of the team, having appeared in every season-opening game of the Sharks since 2010.
Moreover, no official statement has been made regarding his return. However, he is expected to get back to the ice rink within a short time.
He has been recovering from an undisclosed lower-body injury and missed the Sharks training camp that began on September 21. Following the improvements in his health, Couture has been doing some light skating individually.
Debuting in October 2009, he played his first full season with San Jose in 2010-11. His 32 goals and 56 points stood as the 2nd among rookies.
During the 2018-19 playoffs, he led the league in goals (14). Previously in the playoffs of the 2015-16 season, Couture led the league in assists (20) and points (30).
