  • T.J. Galiardi leads Blues to 5-0 win over CBJ
    T.J. Galiardi scored a goal and an assist in the Blues' 5-0 pre-season win over Columbus on Sunday night.

    Advice: The 28-year-old has 105 career points in 321 games, and will try to prove to the Blues he deserves to be back in the NHL after a year abroad. Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Jordan Binnington shares shutout in debut
    Jordan Binnington made 12 saves and split a shutout with teammate Pheonix Copley in the second half of a split squad double header for the Blues and Blue Jackets Sunday night.

    Advice: The Blues won the first game 7-3, then shut out Columbus in the second game 5-0. Copley pitched in 11 saves in the shutout effort. Binnington spent last season with the Chicago Wolves, owning a 18-18-5 record and .907 save percentage. Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Lundqvist, Sweden falls to Europe in overtime
    Henrik Lundqvist turned away 28 of 31 shots during the overtime loss to Team Europe in Sunday's semi-final match.

    Advice: Lundqvist was excellent for Team Sweden, save for the three goals. Marian Gaborik put one in from an acute angle along the goal line, and Tomas Tatar was able to bury both of his rebounds. Still, seven goals against in three games on 126 combined shots is pretty good in a best-on-best tournament. Yesterday, 1:10 pm
  • Clarke MacArthur diagnosed with a concussion
    Per the Ottawa Senators, Clarke MacArthur has again been diagnosed with a concussion.

    Advice: MacArthur missed all but four games due to a concussion in 2015-16, so this is no doubt terrible news for him and the team. Patrick Sieloff nailed MacArthur with a hit during a scrimmage, which instigated a fight between him and Bobby Ryan in response. Clearly this does not bode well for MacArthur, but nothing outside of the diagnosis has been give yet. More to come. Yesterday, 9:56 am
  • Lundqvist starts vs Europe in semi-final
    Henrik Lunqvist will defend Sweden's crease in Sunday's semi-final against Team Europe.

    Advice: Lunqvist has turned away 81 of 85 shots in his two games of play. He shutout Finland, and lost in a thrilling overtime to North America. Europe doesn't quite boast the fire power of even Finland, so it seems fair to say that Sweden is in good hands. Yesterday, 9:35 am
  • Clarke MacArthur helped off ice in scrimmage
    Clarke MacArthur had to be helped off the ice from Sunday's Senators scrimmage after being hit by Patrick Sieloff.

    Advice: MacArthur is trying to make his way back from a lost season due to a concussion, he played just four games in 2015-16. While we don't have any word on the fallout of the hit, the picture in the link below, combined with his history, does not seem to bode well. Yesterday, 9:06 am
  • Jets' have 3 candidates to start in goal
    The Jets' goaltending battle will be a three-way affair with Ondrej Pavelec attempting to fend off challengers Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson.

    Advice: It would be great for the Jets and coach Paul Maurice if one of Pavelec, Hellebuyck and Hutchinson could establish himself and run with the starting job, but it is likely the Jets will at least start the campaign in a job-share situation. It remains to be seen who will share that job with Pavelec. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 8:47 am
  • Carle in a battle for one of two d-man spots
    Matt Carle is in a battle with four others for the last two spots on the Predators' blueline.

    Advice: The former Lightning rearguard will be in competiton with Yannick Weber and Matt Irwin as well as Anthony Bitetto and Petter Granberg for one of the spots on Nashville's last defensemen pairing. We like his chances, as well as Weber's, but anything can happen in these types of situations. Yesterday, 8:22 am
  • Derek Dorsett had good off-season
    Derek Dorsett had a healthy off-season and is playing alongside Markus Granlund and Emerson Etem at training camp.

    Advice: This should be the Canucks fourth line this season. Dorsett had a tough off-season in 2015 as he had double hernia surgery and was forced to miss seven weeks of training in the summer. It was not the case this season so look for Dorsett to get 20-25 points as well as leading or being near the top of the penalty minute category. Yesterday, 8:05 am
  • Sundin also impressed with Matthews
    You can add former Maple Leaf superstar Mats Sundin to the legion of hockey experts who have been impressed with Auston Matthews.

    Advice: Sundin marvelled at Matthews talent at the World Cup of Hockey tournament and had some advice for Matthews who is set to play for the Maple Leafs this season. "I would say to Auston coming into Toronto is to just be yourself and develop as a person and as a kid," Sundin said. "I think that’s the best advice I can give knowing that there is going to be a lot of pressure and a lot of focus on the Maple Leafs. Keep doing what has brought him to this position and made him the first overall pick and he’ll be fine". Expectations will be sky high in Leaf Nation for Matthews this season. Good thing the kid has the talent and character to deal with them. Yesterday, 7:10 am
  • Andy Miele likely to start in the minors
    Look for Andy Miele to start the season in the minors.

    Advice: The Flyers inked Miele to a one-year/one-way deal but he is perceived as a depth forward who will see NHL action when there are injury problems. The diminutive 28-year-old forward had 18 goals and 62 points with Grand Rapids last season in 75 games but has only played in 15 NHL games in his career. Yesterday, 6:49 am
  • Cal Clutterbuck leaves practice early
    Cal Clutterbuck suffered a lower body injury and left practice early Saturday.

    Advice: It does not seem to be a serious injury so expect Clutterbuck back at practice in the next day or two. Clutterbuck is capable of scoring 10-15 goals and 20-25 points but his fantasy value lies in hits where he usually is in the top-five in the league. Draft him accordingly. Yesterday, 6:33 am
  • Jared McCann competing foe 3rd line spot
    Jared McCann is one of a number of players competing for a spot on the Panthers' third line alongside Nick Bjugstad.

    Advice: The Cats' top two lines are set featuring Alexsander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr and Vincent Trocheck, Jussi Jokinen and Reilly Smith, but there are two openings alongside the underrated Bjugstad that must be filled. McCann is in competition with Colton Sceviour and Jonathon Marchessault. McCann was a scorer as a junior in Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL and seems to have the most raw talent of the three. Look for him to capitalize on the opportunity and perhaps even register close to 40 points this season. Yesterday, 6:03 am
  • Anders Nilsson looks good in scrimmages
    Anders Nilsson looked good in two intra-squad games on Friday and Saturday.

    Advice: Nilsson has logged 30 minutes without allowing a goal as he attempts to solidify the Sabres' backup goalie position behind Robin Lehner. We like his chances over Linus Ullmark, who may need a little more minor league seasoning before making his mark in the NHL. Yesterday, 5:37 am
  • Moulson will have to work way up to rebound
    If Matt Moulson is to rebound from his disastrous 2015-16 season and regain his scoring acumen, he's going to have to work his way up from the Sabres' fourth line.

    Advice: That is where Moulson has started during Buffalo's scrimmages to date. He has ranked behind Kyle Okposo, Sam Reinhart and Brian Gionta on the right side and Evander Kane, Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno on the left. "I’ve spoken to Dan [Bylsma]," Moulson said. "He’s pretty blunt in what he says. He doesn’t mix words, so I know I have to earn everything, and that’s what I’m here to do". Although we expect a slight rebound from Moulson this season, don't expect any miracles. Yesterday, 5:32 am
  • Adrian Kempe likely to remain in AHL
    Adrian Kempe will likely play another season in the AHL.

    Advice: The Kings first pick in 2014, Kempe made the trek from Sweden last season and played for the Ontario Reign of the AHL. He struggled at times and went 17 straight games without a goal before he suffered an upper body injury in late February. Kempe ended the season with 11 goals and 28 points in 55 games but had 16 points in his first 20 games in the league. Kempe will likely be a call up at some point in the season but it is still too early to tell if he is worth a pickup this season in fantasy pools. Yesterday, 4:19 am
  • Sami Vatanen returns to Ducks camp
    Sami Vatanen has shown up at the Ducks training camp.

    Advice: Vatanen played in the World Cup so he will get a few days off before returning to the ice as he did not make an appearance Saturday at the Ducks training camp venue. The Finnish defenseman has to be disappointed with the fact that Finland failed to win a game at the tourney but will try to surpass 40 points for the first time in his career this season as he has had 37 and 38 points in each of the last two seasons despite missing 26 games over that span through injury and rest. He should be drafted in the middle rounds of deeper pools. Yesterday, 2:37 am
  • Bozak impressed with Auston Matthews
    Tyler Bozak has been impressed with rookie Auston Matthews.

    Advice: "I don’t think anyone would mind playing with him," Bozak said. "What I’ve seen of him so far is very impressive. You’d never think he’s as young as he is. He looks composed out there. He’s fast, he’s big. He’s winning a lot of battles in the corners against big guys, which is really impressive. He just looks really calm and poised and confident, that’s hard to find in young guys." Matthews should get every opportunity to produce strong offensive numbers right off the bat on a young Toronto team. He enters the year as the Calder Trophy favorite (slightly ahead of Winnipeg's Patrik Laine). Saturday, 8:52 am
  • Matt Moulson looks to prove critics wrong
    Matt Moulson is using his disappointing 2015-16 campaign as motivation.

    Advice: "I definitely have a chip on my shoulder coming in to prove a lot of people wrong who maybe lost a little belief," Moulson said. He was limited to eight goals and 21 points in 81 contests last season. That's a far cry from his three-straight 30-goal seasons from 2009-10 through 2011-12. We don't expect him to return to his old highs, but a rebound to 40 points wouldn't be shocking. Friday, 2:30 pm
  • Lundqvist blocks 45 in 4-3 OT loss to Team NA
    Henrik Lundqvist made 45 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to Team North America on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ludqvist and the Swedes got off to a rocky start when North America scored twice before the game was two minutes old, but they managed to battle back to force overtime. Despite the OT defeat, Sweden clinched the top spot in Group B, so they will play in the semifinal round of the World Cup of Hockey. Wednesday, 3:22 pm
  • Henrik Lundqvist blanks Finns with 36 saves
    Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 36 shots he faced in a 2-0 win over Finland.

    Advice: Lundqvist was making his first start of the tournament after he missed Sweden's opening match versus Russia because of an illness. Tuesday, 2:55 pm
  • Henrik Lundqvist will start against Finland
    Henrik Lundqvist will start Tuesday's game versus Finland.

    Advice: He was held out of Sweden's World Cup opener because of an illness. Jacob Markstron will serve as the backup after he helped the Swedes post a 2-1 win over Russia on Sunday. Tuesday, 10:43 am
  • Auston Matthews scores first on Toronto ice
    Auston Matthews, the Maple Leafs' first overall draft choice and highly touted prospect, scored the opening goal for Team North America Monday night in a 4-3 loss to Team Russia in the World Cup of Hockey tournament.

    Advice: Matthews took a pass from linemate Connor McDavid and scored to give North America a 1-0 lead at 5:14 of the first period. It was his first goal at the Air Canada Centre. He had his first point in his future home rink Sunday night in North America's 4-1 win over Finland. Also scoring a goal Monday night was Matthews' future Toronto teammate, defenseman Morgan Rielly. He made it 4-2 with a wrist shot at 17:56 of the second period. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins cut Russia's lead to 4-3 at 4:03 of the third period but North America could not get closer. Nugent-Hopkins also assisted on Rielly's goal. Monday, 8:40 pm
  • Auston Matthews dazzles in WCH opener
    Auston Matthews picked up an assist in Team North America's 4-1 victory over Finland on Sunday night at the World Cup of Hockey.

    Advice: His helper came on a goal by Jack Eichel to open the scoring just 5:03 into the first period. Matthews was playing his first game at the Air Canada Centre after he was selected first overall by Toronto at the 2016 NHL Draft. He skated on a line with Connor McDavid and Mark Scheifele, while proving that he is more than capable of playing at the NHL level. Matthews tied for the team lead with five shots and logged just over 14 minutes of ice time. Monday, 12:17 pm
  • H. Lundqvist (illness) hopes to start Tuesday
    Henrik Lundqvist (illness) was back on the ice Monday.

    Advice: He was forced to sit out Sunday afternoon's World Cup of Hockey opener because he wasn't feeling 100 percent, but he hopes to be back in the lineup for Tuesday's contest versus Finland. Monday, 9:38 am
  • Henrik Lundqvist (illness) won't play vs. RUS
    Henrik Lundqvist (illness) won't play against Team Russia on Sunday afternoon.

    Advice: Lundqvist was pulled in Wednesday's pre-tournament game, but the fact that he isn't dressed has nothing to do with that. He should be ready to play in Sweden's next game against Finland on Tuesday afternoon. Jacob Markstrom will face Russia on Sunday afternoon, while Jhonas Enroth will serve as the backup. Sep 18, 11:39 am
  • Pavelec, Kundratek, Birnir out vs Canada
    Ondrej Pavelec will be joined by Tomas Kundratek and Michal Birnir in the grand stands for Saturday's match with Canada.

    Advice: Pavelec, who has already been declared as the Czech Republic's third-string goalie, probably won't see much action. Kundratek and Birnir meanwhile ought to stay ready as short tournaments can result in big lineup changes, especially if the losses start piling up. Sep 17, 4:24 pm
