  • Ryan O'Reilly has given the Sabres a boost
    Ryan O'Reilly has been a great addition for the Sabres so far this season.

    Advice: He leads the team in scoring with 19 points in 24 games and he has been a force in the faceoff circle with 334 wins and a 58.8 success rate. O'Reilly had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win against Nashville. 31 minutes ago
  • Kevan Miller (concussion) to travel with team
    Kevan Miller (concussion) will accompany the Bruins on the road this week.

    Advice: He has not been cleared to return from a concussion yet, but it's good news that he is able to travel. When Miller is healthy there's a chance he'll have to wait for an opportunity to play because the Bruins have been playing very well lately. 43 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Aaron Ekblad picks up assist Sunday
    Aaron Ekblad earned an assist in Florida's 2-1 overtime win against Detroit on Sunday.

    Advice: The sophomore blueliner and 2015 Calder Trophy winner has had a slow start to the season, but he has been coming on lately. Ekblad has produced three goals and four assists in his last nine games. 52 minutes ago
  • Joel Ward extends point streak to four games
    Joel Ward is on a four-game point streak.

    Advice: That brings Ward up to nine goals and 23 points in 23 contests. We'd be surprised if Ward was able to maintain that pace, especially after being limited to 34 points in 2014-15. Today, 3:15 am
  • Matt Cullen gets one point in November
    Matt Cullen will finish the month of November with an assist in 12 games.

    Advice: That's a step back from Cullen's four points in 11 October games. Cullen has never been a great offensive contributor, but he was at times a solid one. At the age of 39 though, he's not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues. Today, 3:11 am
  • Michael Del Zotto logs big minutes Saturday
    Michael Del Zotto logged an incredible 29:20 minutes of playing time in Philadelphia's 3-0 victory against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

    Advice: Del Zotto has averaged 23:44 minutes per contest, which represents a nice turnaround from 2013-14, when he fell out of favor with the New York Rangers. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, his increased ice time hasn't led to a rise in production as Del Zotto has five points in 24 contests in 2015-16. Today, 2:57 am
  • Frans Nielsen has 18 points in 24 games
    Frans Nielsen is on a three-game point streak.

    Advice: Nielsen has been great so far with nine goals and 18 points in 24 games this season. That puts him on pace for roughly 61 points, which would represent a near best-case scenario for him, but still wouldn't be an unrealistic outcome. Today, 2:52 am
  • Josefson has gone 13 games without a point
    Jacob Josefson hasn't recorded a point in his last 13 games.

    Advice: That's not shocking when it comes to Josefson. In 203 career games, he's only scored 13 goals and 40 points. You would also have to go back to April 4 to find the last time he scored a goal. Today, 2:46 am
  • Suspension won't change Brandon Dubinsky
    Brandon Dubinsky doesn't plan to change anything based on his one-game suspension for crosschecking Sidney Crosby.

    Advice: "The next time I have an opportunity to play (Crosby), I’m going to play him hard," Dubinsky said. "Like I said before, I’m not trying to crosscheck a guy in the neck, regardless of what anybody else thinks. I’m going to play him hard, I’m going to play him as physical as I can, and I’m going to play as clean as I can. But I’ll make it a tough night on him." Dubinsky is eligible to return on Tuesday. His next opportunity to play against Crosby will have to wait until Dec. 21 though. Today, 2:28 am
  • Riley Nash is on a 12-game drought
    Riley Nash has gone 12 straight games without recording a point.

    Advice: Nash has a goal and two assists in 18 contests in 2015-16. He's likely to finish the season with 20-30 points if he can stay healthy, which is in line with what he did in each of his last two campaigns. Today, 2:24 am
  • Shea Theodore might not play during NHL stint
    Don't be surprised if Shea Theodore doesn't play during his latest stint with the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Anaheim summoned Shea Theodore on Sunday, but with AHL San Diego off until Friday anyways, this might just be an opportunity to get him into some NHL practices. "This is why we have San Diego," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It’s right here so we can do that. Who knows when and if it’s ever going to happen? If you can prepare and give him the ability to practice with us, I think that’s a good thing for him. I’d think he’d want that." Theodore has two goals and 11 points in 19 AHL contests in 2015-16. Today, 2:01 am
  • Nate Thompson back from conditioning stint
    Nate Thompson (shoulder) has returned from his AHL conditioning stint.

    Advice: Thompson, who hasn't made his 2015-16 NHL debut yet, played in two AHL contests. "My shoulder felt fine," Thompson said. "I got hit a couple times [Saturday] night pretty good but it was good. It doesn’t feel good to get hit but it actually did feel good to get hit. It was kind of nice. It makes you feel like you’re back in the action and actually a hockey player again." Given that he's gotten a few minor league games in, it wouldn't be surprising to see him play on Monday. Today, 1:58 am
  • Anaheim likely to start John Gibson on Monday
    John Gibson will probably play between the pipes on Monday.

    Advice: Frederik Andersen has recovered from the flu, but he needs to regain his energy after going a while without eating solid meals. With that in mind Gibson is likely to get at least one more start. Today, 1:55 am
  • Frederik Andersen getting back his strength
    Frederik Andersen (flu) is feeling better, but he's not 100% yet.

    Advice: "The biggest thing for me is just getting energy back," Andersen said. "Having not eaten solid meals for that long in a row takes a lot of energy out of your body. And you got to get that back. It doesn’t just happen overnight. I’m building towards coming back." With that in mind, it would be surprising if Andersen got the start on Monday. He last played between the pipes on Nov. 21. Today, 1:51 am
  • Daniel Carr recalled by Canadiens
    The Montreal Canadiens recalled forward Daniel Carr from the minors.

    Advice: The 24-year-old has never suited up in an NHL game, but he did lead Montreal's AHL squad in goals (24) last season. The Canadiens are without forwards Brendan Gallagher, Torrey Mitchell and Alexander Semin, so Carr may get a shot to play during this stint with the big club. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
    Not Active
  • Anaheim Ducks recall Shea Theodore
    The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Shea Theodore.

    Advice: The 20-year-old defender has yet to make his NHL debut despite coming tantalizingly close earlier in the season. Theodore has been excellent for AHL San Diego thus far, recording nine assists and 11 points in 19 games. Yesterday, 1:20 pm
  • Brandon Dubinsky to return on Tuesday
    Brandon Dubinsky will return to action on Tuesday after being suspended for one game.

    Advice: Dubinsky was handed the discipline for his cross-check to the neck of Sidney Crosby. It was the first suspension of his career and it forced him to miss the St. Louis game. "We absolutely missed him," Ryan Johansen said. "We all know what he provides for this team, in so many areas. I thought we had guys step up and play pretty big minutes. It’s a tough club over there. But Dubi is one of our difference-makers." Dubinsky has four goals and 12 points in 18 games this season. He should be in your lineup when healthy (or not suspended). Yesterday, 4:03 am
  • Dubinsky gets one game for cross-checking Sid
    Brandon Dubinsky has been suspended one game for his cross-check on Penguins forward Sidney Crosby.

    Advice: Dubinsky delivered a cross-check to Crosby's neck in Friday's game and will now pay the price. Crosby left the game momentarily, but he was able to return. The Blue Jackets will take on the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night and it looks like they will do so without Dubinsky. It's the first time he's been suspended in his career. Saturday, 11:10 am
  • Brandon Dubinsky to have hearing with NHL
    The NHL has summoned Brandon Dubinsky to a hearing for his cross-check on Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby.

    Advice: Dubinsky cross-checked Crosby in the neck and then gave him one more for good measure when Crosby fell to the ice after the hit. "There’s no secret. I try to play him as hard as I can," Dubinsky said. "That being said, I don’t try and do anything dirty. I felt like my stick ride up his back a little bit. He’s kind of bent over there in front. But again, that’s not the type of player I am. I’m going to play hard, but try and play fair and play in between the whistle." The NHL likely will disagree with his appraisal and sit him down for a spell. Stay tuned. Saturday, 3:04 am
  • Nate Thompson sent to the minors
    The Anaheim Ducks have sent Nate Thompson (shoulder) to the San Diego Gulls of the AHL on a conditioning assignment.

    Advice: Thompson is right on schedule after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery as it was determined that he would need five-six months of recovery after the June surgery. He is a valuable bottom-six forward but his fantasy value is not big in traditional pools as he is good at hits, blocks and faceoffs. Saturday, 1:39 am
  • Gibson, Ducks fall apart late in the third
    John Gibson kicked out 29 of 32 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Gibson was a mere 1:41 minutes away from a shutout, but Chicago's Marian Hossa and Duncan Keith each beat him in the dying minutes of the third period. Artem Anisimov completed the Blackhawks' comeback at 1:53 of the overtime period. Gibson now has a 1-1-1 record, 2.46 GAA, and .918 save percentage in three contests. Friday, 5:12 pm
  • Brandon Dubinsky felt good in return
    Brandon Dubinsky said his elbow felt good in his return on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dubinsky logged 17:48 minutes in what was his first game in just over two weeks. "And the lungs and legs were better than I thought they’d be, too," Dubinsky said. "The only thing off was my timing on a couple plays. But it’s a fast game. It’ll come." He has four goals and 11 points in 17 games this season. Friday, 7:30 am
  • Frederik Andersen isn't over his flu
    Frederik Andersen hasn't fully recovered from the flu.

    Advice: That makes it unlikely that Andersen will start on Friday. Andersen last played on Nov. 21. Friday, 7:15 am
  • Kevan Miller nears return from concussion
    Kevan Miller (concussion) practiced Thursday for the first time since getting injured against San Jose Nov. 17.

    Advice: Miller will probably still miss his fifth straight game Friday night against the New York Rangers, but he is getting closer to being ready to return. He said he just needs to get his conditioning back. Friday, 4:21 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Gibson expected to face Chicago on Friday
    John Gibson is expected to face Chicago on Friday night.

    Advice: With Frederik Andersen still reported as being sick, Gibson will get the nod ahead of the struggling Anton Khudobin. The youngster Gibson has turned away 39 of 43 combined shots during his two games this season, which came on back-to-back nights against Arizona and Calgary. Thursday, 8:08 pm
  • John Gibson makes 30 saves in loss
    John Gibson made 30 saves on 33 shots in a 4-2 loss to Arizona on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gibson kept his team in this game as he was left out to dry on numerous occasions. The Ducks came out flat and unfortunately for Gibson, he couldn't stop everything. He was making just his first start of the campaign and will likely get more if Frederik Andersen continues to be sick. It will be interesting to see if the Ducks send him back to the AHL with Anton Khudobin being the backup plan this season to Andersen. Wednesday, 9:37 pm
  • John Gibson is expected to start Wednesday
    John Gibson will start for the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Gibson stepped into Tuesday's contest and turned aside 19 of 20 shots to help Anaheim earn a 5-3 come-from-behind victory. That was his first game of the campaign with the Ducks after posting a 2.63 GAA and .917 save percentage in 13 AHL contests. Wednesday, 3:46 pm
  • Brandon Dubinsky is good to return Wednesday
    Brandon Dubinsky will indeed start on Wednesday.

    Advice: That was to be expected after Columbus took Dubinsky off of the injured reserve list on Tuesday, but now we have confirmation. This is a big boost for Columbus as Dubinsky was off to a strong start with four goals and 11 points in 16 contests. Wednesday, 8:42 am
  • John Gibson snags win in debut relief
    John Gibson stopped 19-of 20 shots in Anaheim's 5-3 win over Calgary on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was his debut appearance this season and not a bad one as he was called into action after Anton Khudobin got the hook early. Last season he acquitted himself pretty well at the NHL level with a 13-8 record and 2.60 goals-against-average in 23 appearances. Tuesday, 10:22 pm
  • Blue Jackets take Brandon Dubinsky off IR
    Brandon Dubinsky appears to be ready to return on Wednesday after all.

    Advice: He has been activated off injured reserve after missing the last six games with an elbow injury. In 16 appearances this season, Dubinsky has four goals and 11 points. Tuesday, 1:31 pm
  • Ducks call up netminder John Gibson
    John Gibson has been called up from the minors.

    Advice: Frederik Andersen is questionable for Tuesday's contest because of flu-like symptoms. Gibson has a 7-4-1 record with a .917 save percentage and a 2.63 goals-against average in 13 games with the AHL's San Diego Gulls this season. Tuesday, 9:54 am
  • Frederik Andersen (flu) questionable for Tues
    Frederik Andersen is questionable for Tuesday's game because of flu-like symptoms.

    Advice: Anaheim has recalled John Gibson from the minors if Andersen is unable to dress. It's unclear who the starter would be, but the guess right now is that Anton Khudobin would be in goal with Gibson as the backup. Tuesday, 9:48 am
  • Kevan Miller will be re-evaluated after trip
    Kevan Miller (upper body) isn't expected to play Wednesday at Detroit.

    Advice: He's not going to play on Boston's road trip and is projected to be re-evaluated when the team returns home. Boston hosts the New York Rangers on Friday. Miller has already missed three contests due to an upper-body injury. Tuesday, 6:50 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Nate Thompson (shoulder) practices Monday
    Nate Thompson (shoulder) fully took part in Monday's practice.

    Advice: He is still on track to return in December. Thompson hasn't played yet this season because of off-season surgery. Monday, 12:55 pm
  • Brandon Dubinsky (UBI) won't play Wednesday
    Brandon Dubinsky (upper body) won't play Wednesday.

    Advice: He participated in Monday's practice, but there isn't a timetable set for his return. Right now his return is dependent on how well the stitches over left elbow heal. Monday, 11:19 am
  • Ryan O'Reilly helping Sabres on faceoffs
    Ryan O'Reilly has been great on faceoffs this year.

    Advice: He ranks fifth in the league with 481 faceoff wins and he has a 58.4 winning percentage. O'Reilly has been helping Jack Eichel get better on draws during practices. "I enjoy helping him out," O’Reilly said. "On draws where it's a key faceoff, you have to get in there and be aggressive. I'm showing him some tools where I position my body that helps me on key draws." Nov 23, 6:43 am
  • Kevan Miller placed on I/R
    Kevan Miller has been placed on I/R following the acquisition of Landon Ferraro.

    Advice: Miller is out with an upper body injury and was not expected to play during Boston's four-game road trip. The earliest he can possibly return is Nov. 27th. He has five points, 34 blocks, and 45 hits in 17 games this season. Nov 22, 12:28 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Sabres have just four goals in last four gms
    The Buffalo Sabres have scored just four goals in their last four games.

    Advice: The Sabres lost 2-1 (OT) to San Jose, lost to Dallas 3-1, lost 3-2 (SO) to St. Louis and dropped a 3-0 decision to Dallas on Saturday night. Three of Buffalo's last four goals have been scored by Ryan O'Reilly. Nov 22, 8:32 am
  • Frederik Andersen's struggles continue
    Frederik Andersen was roughed up for five goals in the Ducks’ 5-0 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

    Advice: Andersen would like to have this one back, stopping only 19 shots on the night. In fact, he’s been quite lousy of late, giving up three or more goals in four of his past five games. Andersen has a 2.54 GAA and .914 SV% this season. Nov 21, 6:59 pm
  • Frederik Andersen to face Lightning on Sat
    Frederik Andersen will face the Lightning on Saturday night.

    Advice: After a trio of rocky starts, Andersen was back to his usual excellence against the Panthers on Thursday night. And for the season, he sports a 4-6-4 record with a .921 save percentage and a 2.37 GAA. Expect good things tonight. Nov 21, 3:14 pm
  • Coach thinks two more weeks for Nate Thompson
    Coach Bruce Boudreau estimated that Nate Thompson (shoulder) will be out another two weeks.

    Advice: While Boudreau admitted he is not a trainer (and for sure not a doctor), Thompson was slated to return in early-mid December after undergoing off-season shoulder surgery and he seems to be right on schedule. Thompson should see fourth line duty and will be a nice addition for the struggling Ducks. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues but will compile hits, some blocked shots and is good on the dot. Nov 21, 2:31 am
  • Ryan O'Reilly scores in Sabres' shootout loss
    Ryan O'Reilly scored his seventh goal of the season Thursday night, but missed in the shootout as the Sabres fell to St. Louis 3-2.

    Advice: O'Reilly has a three-game goal streak intact. The 24-year-old has 16 points in 19 games and appears on pace to take a run at his career high of 64 points. O'Reilly had seven shots and over 25 minutes of ice time on Thursday. Nov 19, 10:24 pm
  • Frederik Andersen, Ducks defeat Panthers
    Frederik Andersen made 24 saves on 25 shots to lift the Ducks to a 3-1 win over Florida on Thursday night.

    Advice: Andersen had his best performance in over three weeks, and improved his record to 4-6-4 with a .921 save percentage and 2.37 goals against average. Nov 19, 10:17 pm
