The New Zealand men's hockey striker Hugo Inglis has been forced out of the Champions Trophy tournament starting in Melbourne this weekend because of injury.

Inglis is returning home after breaking a finger in a practice game on Monday.

He's been replaced by Kane Russell of Dunedin.

20-year-old Russell was a stand-out player in the under-21 men's side that competed at the recent Sultan of Johor Cup in Malaysia.
