      Advice: Veilleux has a goal and an assist in 12 games this season. The 33-year-old is a veteran of 506 NHL contests. He only comes with a $575,000 annual cap hit, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him claimed. Rotoworld.com

    • Petry might be a healthy scratch Saturday
      If he's not traded before then, Jeff Petry might be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

      Advice: That would just be Edmonton's way of making sure Petry isn't hurt before the trade deadline. That being said, the trade market seems to have heated up ahead of the March 2 finale, so Petry might be traded before Saturday anyways. He has four goals and 15 points in 59 contests in 2014-15.

That's what is most important for the Jets right now, as they find themselves in a tight battle for a Wild Card playoff spot in the Western Conference. Rotoworld.com

    • Datsyuk scores and the Red Wings win 3-2
      Pavel Datsyuk simply threw one at the net and luckily tied Thursday's game at two midway through the third period, on way to a 3-2 win over the Sharks.

      Advice: It's tempting to ring the ol' "Magic Man" bell here, but Datsyuk really got lucky as Niemi was heavily screened on a puck that didn't leave the ice. But hey, it looks like a perfectly aimed snipe in the books. Dats is second on the team in goals with 22, and leads them in points with 50 through just 49 games. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:24 pm
    • Matt Irwin scores sixth goal in loss to Wings

      Advice: It was a pretty sequence as Scott Hannan dished to Joe Thornton, who found Matt Irwin atop the central point. Irwin sent the puck through a maze of traffic and past Jimmy Howard for the early 1-0 lead. He now has six goals and 12 points, one goal shy of setting a new career single-season high. Rotoworld.com

      Yesterday, 9:01 am
    • Jeff Petry might net Oilers a first rounder
      Edmonton might be able to get a first-round pick in return for defenseman Jeff Petry.

      Advice: After all, Los Angeles surrendered a first rounder to acquire Andrej Sekera from Carolina on Wednesday. Montreal, Anaheim, and perhaps Detroit are among the teams that might make a hard push for Petry, who is eligible to become a free agent this summer. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:14 am

      Advice: This marks the second time in his career that Calvert has reached double-digit goals, but he stands an excellent chance of surpassing his career-best of 11. Kevin Connauton was the only goal scorer for the Jackets in the loss. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:03 pm
    • Hutchinson is the probable starter Tuesday
      Michael Hutchinson is projected to start for the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.

      Tuesday, 10:28 am
    • Nazem Kadri (illness) doesn't practice
      Nazem Kadri missed Tuesday's practice due to an illness.

      Advice: Toronto doesn't play until Thursday, so it's possible Kadri will be fine by then. The Maple Leafs recalled Brandon Kozun, who might be inserted into the lineup if Kadri proves to be unavailable. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:39 am
    • Joakim Andersson (illness) sits Monday
      Joakim Andersson didn't play Monday because of an illness.

      Tuesday, 6:38 am

      Nazem Kadri scored his first goal in seven games during Saturday's overtime win over Winnipeg.

      Advice: The 24-year-old does have four points in his last three games, but going seven games without a goal is inexcusable for someone who plays as many minutes as Kadri does. The Leafs forward has 15 goals and 34 points in 58 games this season. He averages just over 17:30 for the Leafs this season. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:12 am

      Look for Ray Emery to get the start in goal for Philadelphia Sunday.

      Jeff Petry missed his second straight game with bruised ribs.

      Advice: The defenseman is expected to be dealt before the March 2 trade deadline as he and the Oilers have not negotiated any extension to his expiring contract.

    • Pavel Datsyuk records 2G, 2A in 7-6 OT win

Justin Abdelkader also potted one. Tomas Tatar chipped in with two assists. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 8:33 pm

      Jeff Petry's ribs injury is reportedly not too serious.

      Advice: Petry sustained the ailment during Wednesday's contest. He is tentatively expected to be back in a few days. If that proves to be the case, then it shouldn't impact his trade value. Rotoworld.com

      Thursday, 8:03 am
    • Petry's ribs injury could hurt deadline plans
      With Jeff Petry (ribs) hurt, the Edmonton Oilers might be quiet between now and the trade deadline.

      Advice: It's still not clear how long Petry will be out for, but if his injury is significant, it will likely kill the Oilers' chances of moving him. Edmonton doesn't have much else in the way of desirable trade chips beyond Petry unless they want to do something bold like trade a core player. It seems unlikely that the Oilers will do that now though as they've been playing solid hockey under new bench boss Todd Nelson. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:13 am
    • Jeff Petry forced to leave game (ribs)
      Jeff Petry left Edmonton's tilt with Boston on Wednesday with a ribs injury and did not return.

      Advice: Petry and teammate Aton Lander (shoulder) each left with separate injuries which left the Oilers bench with more room in the third period. Both are considered day-to-day at this point and are not fantasy options. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:21 pm
    • Nazem Kadri picks up two assists Tuesday
      Nazem Kadri recorded a pair of assists in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Florida.

      Matt Irwin scored the only San Jose goal in a 5-1 loss to the Predators Tuesday night.

      Advice: Irwin has now registered five goals and six assists in 34 games on the season, meaning he's not worthy of your attention for fantasy purposes. Melker Karlsson and Joe Pavelski picked up helpers on the goal. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:50 pm
    • Ray Emery stumbles in loss to Jackets
      Ray Emery was beaten for four goals on 24 shots in a disappointing loss to Columbus on Tuesday night.

      Advice: The Flyers badly outshot Columbus in this game, but Emery lost the goaltending battle to counterpart Curtis McElhinney, which cost his team the game. The former Senator and Blackhawk has now managed just one win in his last four starts and may take a backseat to Rob Zepp in the Flyers' next game. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:04 pm
      Injured Reserve
    • Matt Calvert scores twice in win over Philly
      Matt Calvert notched a pair of goals for the Blue Jackets on Tuesday as they outscored the Flyers 5-2.

      Advice: Calvert's goals give him nine on the season, but he's not worthy of a roster slot in most leagues. Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky each contributed a goal and an assist in the victory while James Wisniewski also picked up his seventh of the campaign in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:56 pm
    • Ray Emery likely to start vs. CBJ on Tuesday

      Advice: It's been a tough season for Emery, whose gone 10-9-2 with 62 goals against over 24 games this season. His career against the Blue Jackets as a Flyer isn't any better, he's allowed 14 goals in just three games with no wins. You may want to find a more favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com

Nothing is broken or anything. It's just taking a little time." Ellis skated with the team on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:22 am
    • Niederreiter pops both goals in Wild 3-2 loss
      Nino Niederreiter popped both goals in Minnesota's 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Monday night.

      Advice: Niederreiter finished off two pretty passes from Jordan Schroeder, a former 2009 Canuck draft pick, to put the Wild up 1-0 in the first period as well as to pull within a goal late in the third. El Nino also contributed two other shots and a hit in nearly 14 minutes of work. The tallies give him 18 goals, tying him with Jason Zucker for second on the team. Rotoworld.com
