    Cam Atkinson recorded a goal and an assist for Columbus in a 2-0 preseason win over the Penguins Tuesday night.

    Advice: Atkinson has become a reliable regular for the Blue Jackets, but never experienced the massive breakout many predicted, making him an interesting post-hype sleeper.

    Advice: Staal appeared to get tangled with Buffalo's Josh Gorges and had to be helped from the ice as he was unable to place any weight on his right leg. We don't like to speculate about the severity of injuries, but this situation doesn't look promising for the Hurricanes forward. Rotoworld.com

  • T. Hertl likely to remain on wing - for now
    Although Tomas Hertl might eventually shift to center, he doesn't mind serving primarily as a winger this season.

    Advice: San Jose is already deep up the middle, so while it's believed that the team has interest in Hertl serving as a center, they have no need for it in the short-term. "For me, it doesn't matter. I'll play everything. . I think maybe for me still the left wing is a little bit easier because center is a hard position in the NHL," Hertl said. "I see how Jumbo and Cooch play. I'm learning. I don't know, maybe next season. I'm ready for everything." Rotoworld.com

  • T.J. Brodie wants to shoot more in 2014-15
    T.J. Brodie is being asked to shoot more this season.

    Advice: "Looking back last year, there's a lot of chances I had that I didn't take advantage of because I tried to pass instead of shoot," Brodie said. "That's the difference between five or 10 goals and that's the difference between us winning a couple games, especially with all of those one-goal games last year." That might sound like an easy fix, but Brodie will be fighting against his habits as he's always been a pass-first type of player. He had four goals on 104 shots while logging 24:03 minutes per game last season. Rotoworld.com

  • Hanzal, Domi, Samuelsson line impresses
    Martin Hanzal will have to get used to a new linemate now that Radim Vrbata is playing with the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Hanzal played alongside Max Domi and Henrik Samuelsson during Monday's preseason contest and the results were encouraging. Hanzal had two goals and an assist with the three players each getting a point on all three markers. "I put that line on paper a long time ago in the summer," coach Dave Tippett said. "I was itching to try it. We'll see. Samuelsson has great hands and can be a shooter. Domi's a good passer. Hanz is a guy that goes to the net hard. They got a couple breaks on some pucks tonight, but they were an effective line." Rotoworld.com

  • Andersen earns shutout in preseason game
    Frederik Andersen earned a 27-save shutout over Colorado on Monday.

    Advice: Andersen is competing with John Gibson and Jason LaBarbera for the Ducks' starting job and this should obviously help him in that battle. Andersen had a 2.29 GAA and .923 save percentage in 28 games last season. Rotoworld.com

  • Nazem Kadri helps Leafs to preseason win
    Nazem Kadri had a goal and an assist in Monday's preseason victory over Philadelphia.

    Advice: His efforts helped the Leafs rally from a 2-0 deficit to win in the shootout. Kadri wants to become a more complete player this season and he feels he made some positive first steps even though this was just the preseason. "Production is huge. I'm an offensive player, so that's the first thing," said Kadri. " ... I think I was a little better on the draws, coming back in my own end. I even saw a few penalty-killing shifts." Rotoworld.com

  • Cooper has been impressed by Brett Connolly
    It looks like Brett Connolly will be able to start the season with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: He has to clear waivers to be sent down to the minors and he has looked good at training camp so far. "He looks bigger, leaner and faster ... and I think he has been buzzing around the ice," coach Jon Cooper said. "I'm looking forward to seeing him play because it looks like he has worked really hard to show that he wants to not only make this team but play." Connolly has played just 16 games with the Lightning over the past two seasons. He was among the big club's final cuts a year ago and will be hoping to avoid that disappointment for a second straight time. Rotoworld.com

  • Nikita Scherbak stands tall at scrimmage
    Nikita Scherbak was named player of the game after the Canadiens' intrasquad contest on Monday.

    Advice: He will suit up in Tuesday's preseason game against Boston, but his chances of sticking with Montreal out of training camp are still slim. Scherbak, who was the 26th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, may be ticketed for a return to junior-league level eventually but for now he has made a positive impression on the Habs' brass. The Saskatoon Blades traded his rights to the Everett Silvertips on Monday, so he could be playing for a new WHL club this campaign if he does get sent down. Rotoworld.com

  • B's Justin Florek aims for 'grinder' role
    Justin Florek is vying for a fourth-line job at training camp.

    Advice: "I take every day as it comes at me, just kind of put my head down and go to work," he said. "I've just got to focus on what I do best: Play my game and not try to be someone I'm not. I try to keep it simple, get pucks deep and go to work offensively and then try to be responsible defensively. I definitely would classify myself as grinder and I think every team needs players like that. The way the Bruins play, I think it really fits my style. I'm hoping my game fits into their game plan." Florek skated in four games during the regular season and another six contests in the playoffs last season. Rotoworld.com

We'll see when he's able to come back." If he can return to full health soon then he'll be watched closely in preseason games to determine if he can start the year with Boston. Rotoworld.com

  • Martin Hanzal scores twice in preseason win
    Martin Hanzal scored a pair of goals for the Arizona Coyotes Monday night as they defeated the Kings in a shootout by a score of 5-4 in one of two split-squad preseason contests.

    Advice: Perennially underrated, Hanzal's biggest career obstacle has been his inability to play a full season, but he showed some chemistry playing with linemates Max Domi and Henrik Samuelsson in this outing. Sam Gagner also found the back of the net in his first game as a member of the Coyotes. Mike Smith played the entire contest in goal and stopped 29 of 33 shots the get credit for a victory.

  • Alex Tanguay scores in first preseason game
    Alex Tanguay opened the scoring for Colorado in Monday's 5-2 loss to Anaheim in preseason action.

    Advice: Tanguay is coming off an injury0riddled campaign that saw him scored 11 points in just 16 contests, but he appears to be healthy again and could go unnoticed in your fantasy draft. Zach Redmond netted the only other goal for the Avs while goaltender Calvin Pickard allowed four goals on 27 shots in the outing. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:55 pm
  • Andrew Cogliano scores in preseason win
    Andrew Cogliano scored a goal for the Ducks in their preseason-opening victory over the Avalanche Monday night.

    Advice: Cogliano is one of the league's most underrated commodities as his two-way game often goes unnoticed in fantasy circles. Brad Winchester also netted a couple of goals while Jakob Silfverberg and Patrick Maroon also scored goals. Jason LaBarbera received the start in goal and allowed two goals on 21 shots through two periods while Igor Bobkov stopped all five shots he faced in the third frame. Rotoworld.com

  • TJ Brodie scores lone goal in win over EDM
    TJ Brodie scored the only goal of the game, as the Calgary Flames defeated the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.

    Advice: Calgary and Edmonton played two split-squad games on Sunday. This game was played in Calgary. Max Reinhart and Mark Giordano collected assists on Brodie's second period power-play goal. The 24-year-old defenseman should get his fair share of opportunity on the Flames' power-play this season. He registered 4 goals and 31 points in 81 games last season. Calgary goaltenders Jonas Hiller and Brad Thiessen each made eight saves to earn the shutout. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:48 pm
  • David Pastrnak won't take part in scrimmage
    David Pastrnak (shoulder) is being held out of Sunday's scrimmage.

    Advice: That's a tough blow for Pastrnak as he probably would have gotten the opportunity to play on a line with David Krejci and Matt Fraser if he were healthy. Pastrnak is fighting for a roster spot, but he's a bit of a long shot to actually make the team. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:46 pm
  • Cam Atkinson nets 2 goals in preseason opener
    Cam Atkinson scored two goals in Columbus' 4-3 victory over Carolina in the 2014 preseason opener on Sunday.

    Advice: Atkinson is looking to build off of breakout 2013-14 campaign where he scored 21 goals and 40 points in 79 games. He's worth keeping an eye on as he might end up getting plenty of ice time while Nathan Horton recovers from a back injury, but we still can't recommend drafting Atkinson in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brett Connolly begins camp on second unit
    Brett Connolly got a look on the second line of the Lightning on the first day of training camp.

    Advice: He skated with Valtteri Filppula and Alex Killorn. Connolly spent most of the 2013-14 season in the minors, but he has a shot to make Tampa Bay's roster out of training camp. Rotoworld.com

  • David Pastrnak injures shoulder Saturday
    David Pastrnak suffered a shoulder injury Saturday morning at practice when he was hit hard into the boards by Matt Bartkowski.

    Advice: He left the ice immediately and didn't return. "He tweked his shoulder," coach Claude Julien said. "I don't know how serious it's going to be, but (he is) very, very doubtful for tomorrow. I would think if anything he'll be stiff and we wouldn't take that chance. But I don't think it's anything too, too serious." The 18-year-old forward is trying to make the jump to the NHL this season, but a long-term injury could nix those plans quickly. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:34 am
  • Tanguay is sleeper candidate this season
    Alex Tanguay looks healthy and poised to get his career back on track in 2014-15.

    Advice: He certainly made a good first impression in scrimmages on Friday moving without any difficulties and showing no ill effects from hip and knee injuries that sidelined him last season for all but 16 games. "Last year I was a passenger, watching from the sideline. I was almost a fan. But this year I want to be a part of it, and I'm hoping to contribute quite a bit." Tanguay has a career points-per-game rate of approximately .8. That would translate to a 60-point season. If he stays healthy, we don't see any reason why he can't reach that plateau alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:05 am
  • Helm opens on line with Datsyuk
    Darren Helm may be someone to watch over the next two weeks.

    Advice: Helm, a center who will converting to wing this season, is going to get a shot playing alongside Pavel Datsyuk. For the speedy Helm, this is a tremendous opportunity. Of course, that is if he can stay healthy. Helm has been injured for large parts of the last few seasons. That said, Helm's wheels could open up the ice for the talented Datsyuk, something Detroit coach Mike Babcock has obviously thought about. Keep an eye on Helm. He could be a sleeper if he starts the season on the Wings' top line. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:14 am
  • Pastrnak skates alongside idol Krejci
    Rookie David Pastrnak skated on a line with David Krejci in practice Friday.

    Advice: Matt Fraser completed the unit. We wouldn't read too much into practice lines as Krejci is expected to center the Bruins' number one unit between Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson. That said, it was interesting that Boston coach Claude Julien chose to pair Pastrnak with Krejci on the first day of scrimmages. We still don't think Pastrnak will make the Bruins out of training camp as he is likely ticketed to return to Sweden. But nothing is etched in stone. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:35 am
  • Staal brothers might play on same line
    Carolina Hurricanes coach Bill Peters is toying with the idea of having Jordan Staal and Eric Staal play on the same line.

    Advice: The more likely scenario still involves Eric Staal playing alongside Jiri Tlusty and Alexander Semin, but it's worth keeping a close eye on this situation as uniting the Staal brothers would be good news for Jordan. Both Staal brothers are coming off of disappointing campaigns, but while Eric still has fantasy value even in an off campaign, Jordan is far more of a borderline player from a fantasy perspective.

  • Reto Berra worked in the summer with Allaire
    Coach Patrick Roy said that Reto Berra went through the same off-season training with goalie coach Francois Allaire that Semyon Varlamov did prior to the 2013-14 season.

    Advice: "It worked really well for Varly last year, and we hope it has the same affect on (Berra)," Roy said. The Avalanche need Berra to be better than he was during his first NHL season if he's going to play 15-25 games as Varlamov's backup. Rotoworld.com

  • Nikita Scherbak set to attend Canadiens' camp
    Nikita Scherbak took part in one scrimmage at Montreal's rookie camp, but he'll join the Canadiens for the club's main camp.

    Advice: "I was skating in Saskatoon before I got sick here the first three days," Scherbak said Tuesday. "I was just walking around while the guys were practicing and I was feeling no good, kind of frustrated. So I was excited to be on the ice today." He added that he's at about 85 percent, but he expects to be fine for training camp. Scherbak was the 26th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Rotoworld.com

  • Bruins admit excitement about David Pastrnak
    The Boston Bruins hyped up their prospect David Pastrnak after seeing him in action.

    Advice: "There's a reason to be excited about the future of that player," Bruins head coach Claude Julien told ESPN's Joe McDonald. It could be a while before that impact is made at the NHL level, but Boston would love to hit the mark with prospects more often. Rotoworld.com

  • Darren Helm dealing with a sore groin
    Darren Helm (groin) skated briefly on Monday.

    Advice: "He had a bit of a tender groin last week and at this time of the year we encourage guys to not push it," GM Ken Holland said. "We expect everything is good going forward." Helm was limited to 42 games last season due to injuries and he missed seven contests with a groin ailment. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 15, 1:59 pm
  • Tanguay bounce back candidate
    If you are looking for a sleeper bounce-back candidate look no further than Alex Tanguay.

    Advice: He was hampered by a hip injury last season but is apparently healthy now and ticketed to play on a line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly. We would not be surprised if Tanguay registered 60 points this season. Given where he sits on many hockey pool lists based on last season's stats, that would make him a tremendous bargain. Rotoworld.com
    Sep 13, 9:44 am
  • Pastrnak playing as C and RW in rookie camp
    Boston's top draft pick this past June, David Pastrnak, is skating as both a center and a winger in practices at the Bruins' rookie camp this week.

    Advice: As he is essentially blocked at center by David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, the Bruins want to see if Pastrnak can play in the NHL now as a winger. We believe this is a longshot and that Pastrnak will return to play in Sweden this upcoming season. Pastrnak and the other Bruin rookies play their first game Saturday. When he does make it to the NHL, he has the potential to be a mini Krejci, which makes him well worth drafting. Rotoworld.com
