  • Getzlaf and Perry skating together in warmups
    Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry are skating on the same line during the pregame warm up on Monday.

    Advice: The Ducks are set to take on the Canucks in the final game of the evening. Jiri Sekac looks like he will play on the left side of that line. This trio has the potential to be one of the most dominant in the entire league. Yesterday, 6:55 pm

    Ryan Miller will be between the pipes for Monday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: We expected Miller to get the start, but now it's been confirmed. The veteran goaltender got the day off from practice on Sunday, so it will be interesting to see if the Canucks are willing to dress him in back-to-back games today and Tuesday. He has a 1-0-1 record with a 1.95 goals-against-average and a .941 save percentage. Yesterday, 6:45 pm
  • Stars shake up lines, Eaves goes to top unit
    Patrick Eaves moved up to Dallas' first line during Monday's practice.

    Advice: He skated alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, while Cody Eakin dropped back to the third line between Mattias Janmark and Ales Hemsky. Antoine Roussel also replaced Valeri Nichushkin on the second unit with Jason Spezza and Patrick Sharp. Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Rocco Grimaldi heads to the AHL
    Rocco Grimaldi has been assigned to AHL Portland.

    Advice: Grimaldi had been dealing with an ankle injury that placed him on injured reserve for the start of the regular season. He produced 14 goals and 42 points in 64 minor-league games last season. Yesterday, 3:44 pm

  • Kings assign Jeff Schultz to the AHL
    Jeff Schultz has been assigned to the minors.

    Advice: He heads to AHL Ontario after clearing waivers, which leaves Los Angeles with 22 players on the active roster. Schultz logged 18:15 of ice time in the Kings' season opener against San Jose and he posted a minus-1 rating with two blocks. Yesterday, 2:23 pm
  • Cory Schneider's start uncertain for Tuesday
    Cory Schneider missed Monday's practice to be with his pregnant wife, Jill, because they are expecting their first child.

    Advice: He is slated to be back with the team Tuesday, but it's unclear if he will start against Nashville. "We'll talk to him a little bit later today and see where he's at and he'll be back tomorrow and we'll probably make a decision later today or tomorrow," coach John Hynes said. The Devils had Sunday off so Schneider hasn't skated for two straight days. Yesterday, 2:18 pm
  • John Tavares records 3-point game vs. Jets
    John Tavares led the Islanders to a 4-2 win over Winnipeg with three points on Monday afternoon.

    Advice: He scored his second goal of the season and he added two assists in the match. The 25-year-old center got his first power-play marker of the year and he had a hand in goals by Ryan Strome and Brock Nelson. Tavares has four points in three games this campaign. Yesterday, 1:40 pm
  • Brian Boyle scores twice against B's Monday
    Brian Boyle scored a pair of goals in Monday's 6-3 win against Boston.

    Advice: He didn't have a point in his previous two outings of the season. Boyle had 15 markers and 24 points in 82 games with the Lightning in 2014-15 and isn't known for his offense even though he can chip in some goals every now and then. Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Dwight King out with broken bone in foot
    Dwight King, who was hurt during the preseason, broke a bone in his foot.

    Advice: He had surgery to repair the damage and was expected to be sidelined for eight-to-10 weeks. That could place him back in the lineup in late November or early December depending on when he had the procedure. Yesterday, 12:11 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Ryan Miller likely to start against Anaheim
    Ryan Miller is expected to be in goal for Vancouver Monday night against Anaheim.

    Advice: Miller has opened the season with a 1-0-1 record, a 1.95 goals-against average and a .941 save percentage in a pair of games against Calgary. The Canucks play again Tuesday night at Los Angeles, which could be Richard Bachman's first start of the season. Yesterday, 11:58 am
  • Canes' Victor Rask appears to be OK
    Victor Rask (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Monday's practice.

    Advice: He was injured in Saturday's game versus Detroit in the final minute when he fell awkwardly, but it appears as though he will available to play Tuesday. Rask skated between Eric Staal and Kris Versteeg without any problems. He logged a whopping 24:50 of ice time versus Detroit and scored his first goal of the season in the match. Yesterday, 10:31 am
  • Anthony Peluso will sit Monday vs. Islanders
    Anthony Peluso will be a healthy scratch Monday afternoon.

    Advice: Defensemen Adam Pardy and Paul Postma will be scratched as well versus the New York Islanders. Peluso, Pardy and Postma are still waiting to make their 2015-16 debuts. Yesterday, 10:02 am
  • Tyler Bozak back on Toronto's top line
    Tyler Bozak is back with James van Riemsdyk on Toronto's top line.

    Advice: The duo has been joined by Leo Komarov. JVR started the season with Nazem Kadri and Brad Boyes, but Bozak has earned the trust of coach Mike Babcock. He leads all Leaf forwards in ice time with an average of 18:55 per game. Yesterday, 9:23 am
  • Zemgus Girgensons to center O'Reilly, Ennis
    Zemgus Girgensons is projected to move back to center for Monday afternoon's game against Columbus.

    Advice: He is slated to play between Ryan O'Reilly and Tyler Ennis. "I think Zemgus has been the most consistent worker in the first two games," coach Dan Bylsma said. "I think Zemgus played his best game at center in the preseason. He's been good at wing as well but ... postgame I said we're going to put Zemgus at center. I know he's comfortable playing in that position." Yesterday, 7:05 am
  • Brandon Saad taken off first line Saturday
    Brandon Saad was taken off the first line during Saturday's game.

    Advice: Scott Hartnell ended up taking Saad's spot alongside Ryan Johansen and Nick Foligno. This likely isn't the last we've seen of Saad, Johansen, and Foligno as a trio, but it's disappointing to see the Blue Jackets already experiment with breaking them up. Saad stands to lose the most if he's taken off that line. He finished Saturday's contest alongside William Karlson and Cam Atkinson. Yesterday, 5:22 am
  • Canucks give Ryan Miller day off on Sunday
    Ryan Miller didn't practice on Sunday because Vancouver's coaching staff wanted to give him a day off.

    Advice: It was just a reward for his two solid performances so far this season. Miller has a 1-0-1 record with a 1.96 goals-against-average and a .941 save percentage in 2015-16. Sunday, 11:55 am
  • LA Kings place Jeff Schultz on waivers
    The Los Angeles Kings have placed Jeff Schultz on waivers.

    Advice: Schultz spent most of last season in the American Hockey League, as he played just nine games with the Kings. This season, he played in the Los Angeles' opener against San Jose but was a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to Arizona. His fantasy upside is non-existent. Sunday, 9:37 am
  • Rocco Grimaldi nearing return to action
    Rocco Grimaldi skated again on Saturday and is nearing a return to action.

    Advice: He participated in the Panthers' morning skate and seems to have recovered from an ankle injury that kept him from playing in the Cats' season debut Friday night. Grimaldi, who is not really a fantasy factor, should be considered day-to-day. Sunday, 7:35 am
  • John Tavares gets 14 penalty minutes Saturday
    John Tavares had 14 penalty minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: The Islanders dropped a 4-1 decision to Chicago and while Tavares did not pick up a point, he certainly helped his fantasy owners who use the penalty minute category. Tavares' best total in the category was 53 minutes early in his career so he could be on his way to setting a new career mark for himself. Tavares finished second in scoring last season with 86 points and should remain a top-five point producer this season. Sunday, 6:23 am
  • Victor Rask leaves Saturday game early
    Victor Rask was injured in the third period Saturday and did not return.

    Advice: The injury suffered by Rask was undisclosed. Rask is currently playing on the top line with Elias Lindholm and Eric Staal so he has some fantasy value. Rask had 33 points in 80 games last season but could get 40-50 this season if he remains healthy and on the top line. Sunday, 4:19 am
  • Miller gives up three on 38 shots in OT loss
    Ryan Miller yielded three goals on 38 shots in the Canucks’ 3-2 loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

    Advice: The Canucks dropped this one 3:03 into overtime after a goal from Johnny Gaudreau. Miller gave up a goal on 30 shots in the season opener to the Flames, but the home opener wasn’t as kind to him. Miller has lost the shine from his game. He finished with a 2.53 GAA and .911 SV% last season. Saturday, 9:59 pm
  • Tyler Bozak scores for Leafs in SO loss
    Tyler Bozak picked up a goal for the Maple Leafs in their 5-4 shootout loss against the Senators on Saturday night.

    Advice: Bozak now has a goal and four shots on the season, probably one that’s an audition for a trade because of the Leafs’ rebuilding strategy. Joffrey Lupul, Peter Holland and Daniel Winnik scored the other goals. Dion Phaneuf had two assists, two penalty minutes and five shots on goal. Saturday, 8:53 pm
  • Canucks start Ryan Miller vs. Flames Saturday
    Ryan Miller will once again be in goal for the Canucks when they take on the Flames Saturday night.

    Advice: Miller stopped 29 of 30 shots against the Flames on Thursday and will be looking to do more of the same tonight. Miller is one of the best goalies in the NHL and will draw plenty of starts as long as his backup Jacob Markstrom remains injured. Saturday, 5:48 pm
  • No word on Devils goalie Saturday
    Coach John Hynes said that he will decide on his starting goalie Saturday on the flight to Washington.

    Advice: Cory Schneider, the Devils goalie on Friday night stopped 27 of 30 and it would be a surprise if he was not between the pipes Saturday, especially considering he played in 69 games last season. Keith Kinkaid is the backup so stay tuned as it should be announced this afternoon. Saturday, 5:49 am
  • Rocco Grimaldi (ankle) skates on Friday
    Rocco Grimaldi (ankle) skated on Friday.

    Advice: Grimaldi will start the season on the injured list, but Panthers GM Dale Tallon said he will be reevaluated on Saturday. The 5'6, 160 pounder scored one goal in seven NHL games last season. He should be considered day-to-day at this point. Saturday, 4:24 am
  • John Tavares scores in OT loss to 'Hawks
    John Tavares scored a goal in New York's 3-2 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Advice: Tavares scored the Islanders' first goal in Brooklyn. Tavares' goal at the 5:22 mark of the second period tied the game at 1-1. Johnny Boychuk and Casey Cizikas picked up the assists on the goal. Marek Zidlicky's third period goal sent the game to overtime before Patrick Kane scored a power play goal to give the 'Hawks the win. Friday, 8:00 pm
  • Brandon Saad scores first as a Jacket in loss
    Brandon Saad scored a goal in Friday's 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers.

    Advice: The goal was Saad's first as a member of the Blue Jackets. The 22-year-old snuck in from the point on the power play and beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist with a wrist shot. The Blue Jackets held a 2-1 lead with under four minutes remaining when New York scored three unanswered goals. Saad finished the game with a minus-2 rating and four shots on goal in 19:37 of ice time. Friday, 7:14 pm
  • Cory Schneider allows three in loss to WPG
    Cory Schneider allowed three goals on 30 shots in New Jersey's 3-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: The 29-year-old played a career-high 69 games last season, and he could be in line for a similar workload this year. Despite the high number of starts, his fantasy upside will continue to be limited because the Devils don't look like they'll be competing for a playoff spot in 2015-16. Schneider has a 3.16 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage after one start. Friday, 7:03 pm
  • Cory Schneider will start on Thursday
    Cory Schneider will get the start in Friday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: Schneider played in 69 games last season, and he should see a good amount of work this year as well. The 29-year-old has a 2-2-0 record with a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .936 save percentage in four career games against the Jets. Winnipeg will be playing the second half of a back-to-back (they played in Boston last night) so Schneider isn’t a bad fantasy option tonight. Friday, 3:07 pm
  • Patrick Eaves returned to action on Thursday October 8. Thursday, 10:47 pm
  • Victor Rask scores in Canes' opener
    Victor Rask scored the Hurricanes' lone goal in a 2-1 defeat to Nashville to open up the season.

    Advice: Rask's strong rookie season last year, where he managed 33 points in 80 games, extended right into 2015-16. It might take another year or two for him to be a reliable point producer though. Thursday, 7:42 pm
  • Jeff Schultz was called up from the minors on Wednesday October 7. Thursday, 8:39 am
  • Cory Schneider returns to practice
    Cory Schneider took part in Thursday's morning skate.

    Advice: That's just an FYI because Schneider missed Wednesday's practice for maintenance reasons. He should be fine for the Devils' season opener on Friday. Thursday, 8:16 am
  • Ryan Miller solid in opener
    Ryan Miller looked calm and collected in stopping 29-of-30 shots in a 5-1 blowout win over Calgary on Tuesday.

    Advice: Miller gave the Canucks and fantasy owners exactly what they were hoping for in this season opening game. Vancouver's number 1 started last season hot as well and owners will be looking for a repeat performance. With Jacob Markstrom on the shelf for a while it is very likely that Miller gets the run of the starts early on. Wednesday, 10:14 pm
  • Ryan Miller Starts Against the Flames
    Ryan Miller will be the starter as the Vancouver Canucks start the 2015-16 season on the road.

    Advice: In 2015-16 his 14 home wins were eclipsed by 15 road wins in 24 games ending up with a 15-8 record, recording a .914 save percentage and 2.54 goals against average. Miller faces the Flames as the team that ousted the Canucks in the 2015 playoffs. Richard Bachman will be a back up due to a lower body injury to Jakob Markstrom. Wednesday, 6:52 pm
  • Ryan Miller starts Wednesday vs. Calgary
    Ryan Miller will get the call Wednesday night against Calgary.

    Advice: He will be backed up by Richard Bachman because Jacob Markstrom has a lower-body injury. Miller had a .911 save percentage and a 2.53 goals-against average in his first season with Vancouver. Wednesday, 10:48 am
  • Kings place Dwight King on injured reserve
    Dwight King (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve.

    Advice: He was hurt last Saturday in preseason action when he blocked a shot. Coach Darryl Sutter said that King would be sidelined for "an extended period of time," but there's no set timetable for his return. Tuesday, 1:21 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Danny DeKeyser placed on IR
    Danny DeKeyser has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to September 18.

    Advice: The 25-year-old will miss about a month because of a sprained ligament in his left foot. He had two goals and 31 points while averaging 20:55 of ice time last season. Oct 4, 11:21 am
  • CBJ top line: 4G, 11 points in rout of Preds
    The Blue Jackets’ top line torched the Predators on Saturday night, accounting for four of the team’s seven goals in the 7-1 preseason win.

    Advice: If that’s not enough, the trio of Brandon Saad (two goals, assist), Nick Foligno (two goals, two assists) and Ryan Johansen (four assists) recorded a combined 11 points. Too bad it doesn’t count. It is likely to be a precursor to what’s to come, though. The Blue Jackets are a legitimate threat in the Eastern Conference, and it starts with the Saad addition and this line. Brandon Dubinsky (goal, assist), Rene Bourque (goal, assist) and Jared Boll had the other goals. Oct 3, 7:04 pm
