    Petri Kontiola has been sent to the minors.

    Advice: Kontiola is trying to prove that he can make it in North America after excelling in the KHL for years. Obviously, this is not the start he wanted. He inked a one-way deal, so Toronto owes him $1.1 million in salary even if he plays in the minors. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "It's only a preseason game, but watching Saturday, I was impressed how excited people were and the atmosphere, so just to be out there and experience it will be fun," Vanek said.

    Yesterday, 8:11 am
  • Jarome Iginla, Avs struggle for offense
    Jarome Iginla hasn't recorded a point in three preseason games, so he's been moved to a line with Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon.

    Advice: Colorado's offense as a whole has struggled in the preseason, with just seven goals for in five games. To make matters worse, the Avalanche have allowed 17 markers against to post a preseason record of 0-4-1. Alex Tanguay has taken Iginla's place on a line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly.

  • Nail Yakupov is strong in Oilers' loss
    Although the Edmonton Oilers suffered a 5-0 loss to Chicago on Sunday, Nail Yakupov looked good.

    Advice: "He was so responsible, really responsible without the puck, made some really good plays with it and had some chances," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said of Yakupov. "He wasn't rewarded, but I really liked his game." It's just the preseason, but it's still encouraging to hear Eakins praise Yakupov after the rough 2013-14 campaign he endured. Yakupov has a ton of offensive upside and he's not a bad late round gamble. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Franson appears to injure knee Sunday

    Advice: He crashed heavily into the boards and appeared to injure his knee after a battle with Torrey Mitchell and was forced to leave the game.

    Yesterday, 7:16 am
  • Michael Ferland looks great in fight for spot
    Michael Ferland is making a strong argument for the Flames' keeping him beyond training camp.

    Advice: Ferland had two goals and some big hits in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Colorado. "What's impressive about a young player like Ferly is that for all those young kids, now we're getting closer and closer to NHL hockey," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "You don't want to have a separation. You need to keep up with the pace, and Ferly was a force." He had six goals and 18 points in 25 AHL games in 2013-14. Rotoworld.com

  • Florida places Dan Ellis on waivers

    Advice: He appeared in six games with Florida last season after he was acquired at the trade deadline from Dallas. Ellis had no wins and five losses to go with an .836 save percentage and a 4.81 GAA, so it's not surprising that the team brought in Al Montoya to serve as Roberto Luongo's backup for this campaign.

  • Nikolaj Ehlers impresses Andrew Ladd
    Nikolaj Ehlers skated with Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little during Saturday's preseason contest.

    Advice: "He's a talented kid," said Ladd of Ehlers. "Obviously his speed and his handling of the puck... he's got great hands on him and is able to make a lot of plays in traffic. That first goal, he was on the train tracks in the middle and didn't think he was going to make it out of there, but he's pretty slippery and was able to find his way through and make plays off that." Ehlers had an assist and three shots in a 4-3 loss to Minnesota. He's been impressive at training camp and could open the season with the Jets for a trial run. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:22 am
  • Dustin Byfuglien (LBI) is still day-to-day
    Dustin Byfuglien (lower body) didn't skate again on Sunday.

  • Nail Yakupov to play with Draisaitl, Perron
    Nail Yakupov will play alongside Leon Draisaitl and David Perron on Sunday.

    Advice: The Oilers are in Saskatoon to take on the Chicago Blackhawks and Yakupov will certainly be on a potentially offensive line as Perron is a scorer while Draisaitl has a boatload of offensive talent after being drafted third overall in 2014. Yakupov also has tremendous upside offensively and after a horrible 2013-14 season, where scored only 11 goals and 24 points with a disastrous minus-33 rating, he will look to turn it around 180 degrees this season.

    Sunday, 4:26 am
  • Tyler Seguin assists twice in Stars' win
    Tyler Seguin picked up two helpers for the Stars in their 4-2 win against the Blues on Saturday night.

    Advice: Seguin is among the most exciting players in the game and should again eclipse the point-per-game mark and perhaps top 40 goals, too. Seguin had assists on Travis Morin's and Kevin Connauton's goals. Derek Meech had the other marker for Dallas. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:14 pm
  • Thomas Vanek won't play Saturday

  • Ryan Craig sits out practice on Friday

    Advice: No word on the injury or the severity of the injury. Consider Craig day-to-day for now. Craig had no points in six NHL games last season and at age 32, he is just a depth player at best in the NHL. Rotoworld.com

  • Dan Ellis unwilling to surrender backup role
    Even though the Florida Panthers brought in Al Montoya during the off-season, Dan Ellis isn't willing to concede the team's backup goalie job.

    Advice: "I don't feel like I'm going to leave," Ellis said Wednesday. "I've played long enough and have seen a little bit of everything. I was prepared they were going to bring in another guy. I knew they needed at least three goalies. Wherever they want to slot things in the summertime isn't my concern." Montoya probably has the inside track at the role, but Ellis does have a chance to serve as Roberto Luongo's understudy if he can earn the role at training camp. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:25 am
  • Nick Ritchie making a good first impression
    Although Nick Ritchie might not make the Ducks' opening game roster, he's making a good first impression.

    Advice: Ritchie was taken with the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. "I think he's going to be a real good player," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said of Ritchie. "I think he was a real good pick. He can skate, he's big, he's strong and he has an eye for the net. I know he played pretty well in the two rookie games, but let's see now. It's a little bit different now that he's going to be playing against men. It will be a better test for him." He's already got the size to play in the NHL, but it will still be difficult for him to jump straight from the draft to the NHL. For what it's worth though, Ducks GM Bob Murray promised to find a way to make room for Ritchie if he proved himself worthy of it. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He put himself into consideration after a strong performance in Sunday's scrimmage. Glennie had a goal and an assist in the session. He will compete with Travis Morin, Radek Faksa, Curtis McKenzie and Matej Stransky for a potential extra forward spot to begin the season. Dallas may be in need of more bodies with Rich Peverley sidelined with a cardiac condition and Cody Eakin still unsigned as a restricted free agent. Rotoworld.com

  • Jarome Iginla gaining chemistry with Duchene
    Jarome Iginla is already enjoying playing alongside Matt Duchene.

    Advice: "I think there's some real good chemistry. I've been here about a month now, and although training camp just started a few days ago, it feels like it's been a few weeks now because guys got together early," said Iginla. "I like playing with Dutchy and Factor (Ryan O'Reilly). They're skilled, they're quick and they create a lot. You can tell they've played together a lot, because they have great chemistry, and I just want to add to it." Iginla scored in Sunday's scrimmage to help Team White earn a 4-3 victory. The 37-year-old winger isn't showing signs of slowing down and another strong season should be within his reach. Rotoworld.com

  • Jets will watch Nikolaj Ehlers closely
    Nikolaj Ehlers is turning heads at Winnipeg's training camp.

    Advice: "He skates so well, he's got the big shot," said Jets coach Paul Maurice. "Can he get in and out of the traffic like he did at the Penticton tournament? I believe he will, I believe he can do it." Ehlers, Nic Petan and Adam Lowry are expected to get plenty of looks during the preseason to see how they look against other NHL competition. Winnipeg has some openings on the roster, but it wouldn't be surprising if the 18-year-old played most of the 2014-15 campaign at the junior-league level. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:40 am
  • Thomas Vanek, M. Koivu shine on line together
    Thomas Vanek has been playing alongside Mikko Koivu.

    Advice: Wild coach Mike Yeo has liked what he's seen from the pairing so far. "It's been exciting," Yeo added. "I've been really pleased with Thomas so far.

Vanek signed a three-year, $19.5 million contract with Minnesota over the summer. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 21, 12:20 pm
