Dubinsky's wrist injury was deemed "a chronic condition" by general manager Jarmo Kekalainen, who also told reporters the center wasn't close to returning to action, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. Considering Dubinsky hasn't played at all this season -- his last appearance in an NHL game was May 6, 2019 -- fantasy owners may have to be prepared for Dubinsky to permanently wind up on long-term injured reserve. Even if cleared to play down the road, the Alaska native failed to reach the 20-point mark in either of his previous two seasons and likely won't get back to being a 40-point producer any time soon.
Dubinsky (wrist) won't play Friday against Anaheim, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports. Dubinsky has yet to play this season due to a wrist injury and remains without a timetable for his return to the lineup. The veteran pivot will need to be activated off injured reserve before making his season debut, so expect another update on his status once that occurs.
Dubinsky (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports. This is essentially a formality since Dubinsky was already set to miss the season opener with this wrist issue. There's still no timeline for Dubinsky's return, but the earliest he can play in a game will be Oct. 7 versus the Sabres. Once he's healthy again, Dubinsky will fill in on the bottom six.
Dubinsky is out indefinitely with a wrist injury and will miss the start of the 2019-20 campaign. Dubinsky failed to hit the 65-game mark in either of his previous two seasons and appears set to miss some time this year as well. The veteran has seen himself bumped from a top-six role, and likely will fill in as a fourth-line center. Gone are the days in which Dubinsky was a 50-point producer, with his ceiling likely in the 20-25 point range.
Dubinsky (concussion) will take part in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Lightning, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports. Dubinsky cleared the league's concussion protocol after Game 3 and was expected to play Tuesday after receiving that evaluation. He should remain on the fourth line alongside Boone Jenner and Riley Nash after coach John Tortorella declared no lineup changes.
