That’s just the sort of thing that a newbie DM would find exceptionally helpful, and my only guess is that they just couldn’t make room for it. Hit points are provided on the very first line of the stats something I noticed they had done with almost all of the stat blocks in Expedition to Castle Ravenloftand Scourge of the Howling Horde even takes it one step further by adding a number of “check-off boxes” the DM can “X” through as the creatures take damage, but nowhere do the stat blocks state how many HD a given creature has.

As far as that goes, Gwendolyn does an excellent job providing the neophyte DM with all of the help he should need; she provides page numbers in the Player’s Handbook and Dungeon Master’s Guide where specific information can be found, gives reminders about how some of the concepts like damage resistance and hardness work, and so on.
