  • Alex Tanguay (face) will miss Tuesday's game
    Alex Tanguay (face) will not be available to play on Tuesday after all.

    Advice: Tanguay was initially projected to return, but he's still experiencing pain and his vision is blurred. If there's a silver lining, it's that he took part in Tuesday's morning skate. This will be his second straight game on the sidelines.

  • V. Hedman out Wednesday, possible Saturday
    Victor Hedman (finger) won't be back on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hedman might be available on Saturday though. He got off to a fantastic start this season with seven points in five games and we think he'll continue to shine once he's healthy.

  • Martin Jones will probably start on Tuesday
    Martin Jones will probably play between the pipes on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jones was the first goaltender off the ice Tuesday morning, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He has a 1.83 GAA and .928 save percentage in four contests this season.
    Today, 10:16 am
  • Tobias Enstrom dealing with lower-body injury
    Tobias Enstrom has sustained a lower-body injury.

  • Steve Mason admits to being frustrated
    Steve Mason admitted to being frustrated after posting a 46-save shutout and then losing in the shootout on Monday.

    Advice: "But at the same time ... it has to be frustrating for the players when you don't perform well and you let in crap goals (in other games)," Mason said. "It's just frustrating not being able to get the extra point. We left another point out there. It’s unacceptable." Losses like this happen, but the Flyers could have certainly used the extra point. With a 8-9-3 record, Philadelphia sits in sixth place in the Metropolitan Division.

  • Mikko Koivu sets up Jason Zucker twice Monday
    Mikko Koivu contributed two assists in a 4-1 win against Florida on Monday.

    Advice: He had the only helper on a pair of goals from Jason Zucker in the match. The two of them appear to be building some chemistry and Koivu praised the 22-year-old's game. "His work ethic right now is another step of wherever he's been," said Koivu. "I think he's playing his best hockey — not just the points and goals, but overall. If he keeps doing that, he's going to be a great player."

  • Carolina promotes Michal Jordan
    Michal Jordan has been called up by the Carolina Hurricanes.

  • Anaheim demotes Emerson Etem
    Emerson Etem has been sent to the minors.

    Advice: Etem has two goals and four points in 21 games in 2014-15. He's got a fair amount of offensive upside, but we might not see much evidence of that at the NHL-level in 2014-15.
    Today, 6:53 am
  • Colby Robak sees limited action Monday
    Colby Robak got back into Florida's lineup on Monday night.

    Advice: He was a healthy scratch for the team's last two games. Robak replaced Dylan Olsen, who went to the press box in his place, in the lineup in a 4-1 loss to Minnesota. He had a minus-1 rating and he saw just 9:47 of ice time, so he may not be back in the fold on Wednesday.
    Today, 6:13 am
  • Tomas Tatar continues red hot streak
    Tomas Tatar registered an assist on a power-play tally by Riley Sheahan on Monday night.

    Advice: He extended his scoring streak to six games with the helper. Tatar has amassed five goals and three assists during that span. He was awarded with the NHL's second star of the week for the period ending Nov. 23.
    Today, 6:07 am
  • Henrik Zetterberg puts an end to brief skid
    Henrik Zetterberg picked up an assist on Monday to end his four-game skid without a point.

    Advice: He recorded the primary assist on Gustav Nyquist's power-play marker. Zetterberg leads the Wings in scoring with 18 points in 21 games, so it was only a matter of time before he got back on the scoresheet.
    Today, 5:58 am
  • Torrey Mitchell has been finding his role
    Torrey Mitchell has recorded two goals in his past four games.

    Advice: He scored the game-winning goal for Buffalo last Saturday versus Washington. "It's nice to have some success right now and finding my role," Mitchell said Monday. "Confidence is everything in this league. That's no secret. You get some wins under your belt and you start feeling good about yourself. It makes a big difference just showing up to the rink on a practice day." He's averaging 14:29 of ice time per contest, which is the highest of his career. Mitchell has three goals and four points in 21 matches, but it still could be a career year for him from a goal point-of-view if his current pace continues. While that's great for him, Mitchell isn't worthy of having a spot on your fantasy roster.
    Today, 5:39 am
  • Josh Gorges (knee) skates Monday
    Josh Gorges (knee) skated before Buffalo's practice on Monday.

    Advice: "He's a pretty optimistic guy," coach Ted Nolan said. "He skated out there, surprised me, and we'll just go from there." He's expected to be out until next month because of a knee injury, which has resulted in him missing the last four games.

  • G Steve Mason gets shutout in shootout loss
    Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Steve Mason was brilliant Monday night, blocking 46 shots and not allowing a goal in regulation or overtime before the New York Islanders emerged with a 1-0 victory in a shootout period.

    Advice: Despite the shootout loss, Mason was credited with his first shutout of the season. New York outshot Philadelphia 12-6 in the first period and 15-10 in the second. Mason's strong play continued into the third, when he denied Isles superstar John Tavares on a wraparound and then quickly turned aside Kyle Okposo on the rebound. The goalie robbed Okposo again with 1:40 left when he took a drop pass from Nikolai Kulemin and ripped a wrist shot from the right circle that Mason snared out of the air with his glove. It was the Islanders' 42nd shot of the game. They held a 43-20 advantage after 60 minutes. Mason's dazzling performance carried on into overtime when he gobbled up Johnny Boychuk's redirection from right in front of the net off a feed from Nick Leddy 1:03 into the extra period. Mason denied Okposo in the opening round of the shootout before Frans Nielsen and Tavares solved him in the following rounds. Mason is now 4-6-2 on the season, with a goals-against average of 2.61.

  • Alex Tanguay (face) set to return Tuesday
    Alex Tanguay (face) has been cleared to return to action and he's expected to play Tuesday against Arizona.

  • Henrik Zetterberg going through mini slump
    Henrik Zetterberg is currently mired in his longest scoring drought of the year.

    Advice: He hasn't picked up a point in four straight games and he has a minus-4 rating over that span. Still, he has managed to amass 15 shots during that time and his skid probably won't last much longer. He'll be looking to get back on track on Monday against Ottawa.
    Yesterday, 7:52 am
  • Emerson Etem, Tim Jackman healthy scratches
    Emerson Etem and Tim Jackman will be healthy scratches Sunday night against Arizona.

    Advice: Rene Bourque will fill in for Etem while Jackman is simply being sat.
    Sunday, 5:00 pm
  • Sheahan, Abdelkader, Tatar line solid in loss
    Red Wings' head coach Mike Babcock was impressed with the line of Riley Sheahan, Justin Abdelkader and Tomas Tatar.

    Advice: The Wings lost the game 4-1, but that line in particular was dominant at times against the Leafs. "I really liked their effort," said Babcock. "Helm's line and Sheahan's line were our best lines on the trip. They've been good." Tatar scored the only goal of the game for Detroit.
    Sunday, 7:29 am
  • Victor Hedman skates in no-contact jersey
    Victor Hedman took part in the Lightning's morning skate on Saturday but he still was wearing a no-contact jersey.

    Advice: Hedman went down with a finger injury almost five weeks ago and he will have a checkup next week to determine when he can return to action. If he continues progressing, he should return to action in the next 7 to 10 days.
    Sunday, 7:23 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Tatar rolling with points in five straight
    Tomas Tatar tickled the twine for the Red Wings but it wasn’t nearly enough in their 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

    Advice: Tatar’s ninth goal ties him with Gustav Nyquist for the team lead in goals. He also has 12 points. More notably, however, is the fact Tatar has points in five straight games, and five goals during that span. He could get into the 50-point range this season. Xavier Ouellet and Brian Lashoff assisted twice.
    Saturday, 7:34 pm
  • Steve Mason makes 20 saves in 4-2 win
    Steve Mason made 20 saves in the Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

    Advice: Most importantly, the Flyers got 37 shots on net, so Mason wasn’t asked to do it all himself. He allowed a goal in the first and one in the third. Mason’s win snaps a personal two-game losing streak. He has a 2.86 goals-against average and .913 save percentage and remains a fringy second goalie in fantasy leagues.
    Saturday, 6:45 pm
  • Colby Robak will sit for sixth straight
    Colby Robak will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against Nashville; it will be his sixth straight game in the stands.

    Advice: With just a half dozen games under his belt this season, and 41 in his career over the past four seasons, it doesn't seem as though the 24 year old has much of a place with the Panthers. But hey, at least his per diem gets a boost.
    Saturday, 4:40 pm
  • Brian Elliott beats his former team
    St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott prevailed over his former team, the Ottawa Senators, 3-2 on Saturday.

    Advice: He's now 8-4-1 with a .927 save percentage and one shutout so far in 2014-15. He stopped 24 out of 26 shots on Saturday.
    Saturday, 3:00 pm
  • Steve Mason will get the net Saturday night
    Steve Mason will be in net Saturday night when the Flyers take on the Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Only a win's worth of points separates these two teams, and Columbus holds the cellar. Given how magnificent Mason played Wednesday night against the Rangers it's fair to expect that Mason and the Flyers expect to win tonight's contest.
    Saturday, 2:23 pm
  • Enstrom to play Sunday v Blues
    Tobias Enstrom missed practice Saturday but should be good to go Sunday against the Blues.

    Advice: it was just a maintenance day off for Enstrom who logs a lot minutes, 25:10 per game, to lead the Jets.
    Saturday, 11:43 am
  • Koivu expected to play Saturday v Tampa
    Mikko Koivu is expected to play Saturday night against the Lightning.

    Advice: He seems to be over an illness that kept him out of Friday's practice. Make sure you have Koivu, who likely skate alongside Nino Niederreiter and Justin Fontaine, active for Saturday night's contest.
    Saturday, 11:08 am
  • Elliot to start Saturday afternoon v Sens
    Brian Elliott will be in goal Saturday afternoon when the Blues face off against the Senators.

    Advice: Elliott always enjoys playing against his former club and we see him being very stingy in Saturday's matinee. Elliott, who is coming off a 2-0 loss to Boston in which he stopped 15 of 17 shots, will ikely get the call Sunday afternoon as well against the Jets.
    Saturday, 10:17 am
  • Tanguay could be out a while
    Although it was good news that Alex Tanguay did not break his jaw when he was struck by a puck in the face Thursday night, he will be out of action indefinitely with facial fractures.

    Advice: News coming out of Denver is that Tanguay could need more than a few games to heal to the point where he can wear a shield and play. Reserve the veteran forward immediately.
    Saturday, 9:50 am
    6:00 pm @ Ari
  • Get on Tomas Tatar before it's too late
    If Tomas Tatar is somehow still a free agent in your hockey pool, we strongly suggest you pick him up immediately.

    Advice: If you haven't noticed, Tatar is on fire and is really maturing as a reliable offensive force. He is second on the Wings with eight goals and trails only Henrik Zetterberg on the team in shots. Detroit coach Mike Babcock has always been a fan of Tatar and has pushed him to become a better player. "Tats is a competitive kid," Babcock said. "I might be harder on Tats than anybody on the team just because I think Tats has a chance to be a real player. We're going to hold him to that". Take a minute out from reading Rotoworld and pick Tatar up.
    Saturday, 7:07 am
  • Mikko Koivu is day-to-day with an illness
    Mikko Koivu is dealing with an illness.

    Advice: Koivu missed Friday's practice as a result, but he's still a possibility for Saturday's contest. He has gotten off to a slow start this season with two goals and five points in 18 games.
    Friday, 11:05 am
  • Alex Tanguay has suffered facial fractures
    Alex Tanguay sustained facial fractures when he was struck in the face by a shot from Alex Ovechkin on Thursday.

    Advice: Tanguay isn't expected to play Saturday as a result, but it's not clear how much time he'll miss beyond that game. He has seven goals and 11 points in 20 contests in 2014-15.

  • Victor Hedman (finger) skates, shoots Thurs.
    Victor Hedman (fractured finger) took part in Thursday's morning skate.

    Advice: He said "it felt pretty good" and he was happy that he was able to take some shots for the first time. "At least another week, week-and-a-half to two weeks," Hedman said referring to his timetable. "I'm very excited about that, but moving forward it's just going to be fun to skate with the team and participate in the drills I can and keep working hard off the ice to stay in shape. It's been a tough four weeks, but the team has been playing well, so that makes it easier."

    Injured Reserve
  • Alex Tanguay leaves game with injured jaw
    Alex Tanguay left Thursday's game against Washington early with a jaw injury.

    Advice: Tanguay took an Alex Ovechkin shot to the face midway through the game. He played just 7:15 and didn't contribute to the score before official word came down that he would not return. The extent of his injury has not been released yet but we will keep you posted as the news comes out.

    6:00 pm @ Ari
  • Tomas Tatar scores twice as Wings beat Jets
    Tomas Tatar stayed hot with a pair of goals on Thursday night to lead Detroit past Winnipeg.

    Advice: Tatar now has four goals and six points in his past four games. The 23-year-old Slovakian has eight goals and 11 points in 19 games so far. His second goal of the night came with under five minutes left and stood as the game winner. He might be worth a pick-up, but is not known a consistent fantasy contributor just yet.
    Thursday, 7:55 pm
  • Colby Robak not in Panthers lineup vs. SJ
    Colby Robak is a healthy scratch against San Jose on Thursday.

    Advice: The 24-year-old has no points and two penalty minutes in six games this season.
    Thursday, 7:44 pm
  • Victor Hedman (hand) gets cleared to shoot
    Victor Hedman (hand) got the green light to resume shooting on Wednesday.

    Advice: He feels like he's about a week and a half away from returning to Tampa Bay's lineup. Hedman has been sidelined since Oct. 18 because of a fractured finger, which required surgery to repair.

    Injured Reserve
  • Goalie Steve Mason stops 32 but takes loss
    Flyers goalie Steve Mason turned away 32 shots but took a 2-0 loss to the Rangers in New York Wednesday night.

    Advice: Mason's teammates couldn't get any goals past backup Rangers goalie Cameron Talbot, who stopped 31 shots. Mason's having a tough season. He is now 3-6-1. His goals-against average is 2.94 and his save percentage, .914. Don't give up on him if he's your fantasy goalie. He played well against the Rangers and, eventually, the Flyers offense will produce some goals for him.
    Wednesday, 7:54 pm
  • Buffalo moves Josh Gorges to injured reserve
    Josh Gorges (knee) has been moved to injured reserve.

    Wednesday, 12:10 pm
  • Victor Hedman (hand) hasn't resumed shooting
    Victor Hedman (hand) has not been cleared for shooting drills yet.

    Advice: He is still wearing a splint after having surgery on his right pointer finger four weeks ago. "I just keep plugging away," Hedman said. "It's good to be in full gear and skating around and touch the puck a little bit. It's a process, so I'm just going to keep pushing forward." Hedman was firing on all cylinders before he got injured, with three goals and seven points in five games.
    Wednesday, 8:30 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Tomas Tatar picks up 2 points in win
    Red Wings winger Tomas Tatar scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-0 win over Columbus Tuesday night.

    Tuesday, 8:46 pm
  • Brian Elliott suffers rare misstep on loss
    St. Louis goaltender Brian Elliott came up on the losing end of a 2-0 score against the Bruins on Tuesday.

    Advice: Elliott has been superb this year, partially due to his exceptional supporting cast, but surrendered two goals on 17 shots in this defeat. Despite the loss, he owns a 7-4-1 record, a 1.89 GAA and a save percentage of .927. If this passes for an off night with him, it's hard to complain about his production.
    Tuesday, 8:17 pm
  • Brian Elliott to start against Boston Bruins
    Brian Elliott gets the call Tuesday night in Boston.

    Advice: Elliott hosts a .930 save percentage and 1.87 GAA, will face the lack-luster Boston offense who will be without Brad Marchand. The Blues, who lead the Central Devision also announced that Jake Allen will go in Montreal on Thursday.
    Tuesday, 2:30 pm
  • Victor Hedman (hand) on trip with Lightning

  • Josh Gorges (knee) is weeks away
    Josh Gorges has knee injury and he's weeks away from returning to the lineup.

    Advice: "It's not the worst, but it's not the best," GM Tim Murray said. "It's in between. He's not coming back any time soon. It's weeks. I have not been told about surgery, so until Tim Macre tells me something I can't speculate." He has missed Buffalo's last two games due to the ailment.

  • Emerson Etem registers two assists in loss
    Emerson Etem registered two assists in Anaheim’s 6-2 loss to Florida on Sunday.

    Advice: Etem didn’t register a point in the first 13 games of the regular season, but he has two goals and two assists in his last six games. The Ducks have now lost five of their seven games in November. The only positive the Ducks can pull from this game is that Corey Perry (illness) and Kyle Palmieri (ankle) returned from the injured list.
    Nov 16, 7:38 pm
  • Jonathon Merrill still out of action
    Jonathon Merrill (arm) will travel with the Devils on their upcoming road trip.

    Advice: Merrill has missed the last seven games with a sore hand/arm. He has four points including a goal in 11 games and is expected to play at some point this week.

    Injured Reserve
    7:00 pm @ Van
  • Emerson Etem sees time on top line
    Emerson Etem is seeing time on the Ducks first line.

    Advice: Etem has taken over from the ailing Corey Perry and is playing alongside Patrick Maroon and Ryan Getzlaf. Etem scored his second of the season against the Kings on Saturday and it looks as if he will have another three games as Perry is not expected to return for another week as he lost a lot of strength recovering from the mumps. Ride him for the week if you can.
    Nov 16, 1:04 am
  • Brian Elliott makes 24 saves in 4-1 triumph
    Brian Elliott backstopped the Blues to a 4-1 win over the Capitals on Saturday night with 24 saves.

    Advice: Elliott is technically the top goalie on this team, however he continues to split time with Jake Allen. He has 11 starts, compared to six for Allen. It’s kind of shame because it looks like Elliott could really run with this job. He has one loss over his last seven games. Altogether, he has a 1.87 goals-against average and .930 save percentage.
    Nov 15, 8:11 pm
  • Elliott will be in goal v Caps Saturday
    As reported earlier this week, Brian Elliott will in fact be in goal Saturday night against the Capitals.

    Advice: Eillott seems to be getting 65% of the Blues starts. We suspect that will be how the playing time will be split between him and Jake Allen for the balance of the season.
