    Viktor Svedberg has been called up by Chicago.

  • Josh Gorges (LBI) may play Thursday night
    Josh Gorges (lower body) is still listed on injured reserve on Buffalo's website, but he could be available to play Thursday night.

  • Howard starts Friday, Mrazek goes on Saturday
    Jimmy Howard will be between the pipes on Friday against Toronto.

    Advice: He gets the nod for Detroit's home opener and Petr Mrazek will be in goal Saturday night at Carolina. The Red Wings play four back-to-back situations in October, so Howard and Mrazek will both get plenty of opportunities to prove themselves. Detroit coach Jeff Blashill expects one to emerge as the starter. Today, 11:04 am
  • 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. Today, 10:48 am
  • Corey Crawford to start Chicago's opener
    Corey Crawford is expected to get the nod for Chicago on Wednesday night against the New York Rangers.

    Advice: He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate. It shouldn't come as a surprise that the Blackhawks will start Crawford in the first game of the regular season. He posted an impressive .924 save percentage and a 2.27 goals-against average in 57 games last season. Today, 9:09 am
  • Radko Gudas out, Schenn in for Thursday
    It looks like Radko Gudas will have to wait a little longer to make his Philadelphia debut.

    Advice: He is slated to be a healthy scratch Thursday against his former Tampa Bay teammates. Luke Schenn is expected to play instead. Gudas didn't get to play with the Flyers last season after he was traded by the Lightning because of knee surgery. Today, 8:57 am
  • Andrew Shaw skating on third line again
    Andrew Shaw has returned to the bottom-six forward group.

    Advice: Shaw gets moved up and down the Blackhawks' lineup, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. He got some time at training camp alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa, but he's been centering Bryan Bickell and Kyle Baun lately. That is probably where Shaw will begin the 2015-16 season. Today, 8:46 am
  • Tyler Johnson back at practice Wednesday
    Tyler Johnson (undisclosed) is back on the ice for Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times is reporting that Johnson "looks good in practice, participating in all drills and rushes." That's encouraging news with Thursday's regular season opener fast approaching. Today, 8:24 am
  • Mark Borowiecki ready to try right side
    Mark Borowiecki will move to the right side this season.

    Advice: He has played on the left throughout his career, but he has accepted the new challenge that awaits him. "It's a bit of a point of pride for me," Borowiecki said. "It's not an easy thing for a defenseman to do. Especially young guys who haven't been in the league a long while. Not many guys can do it, for whatever reason. If the coaches keep giving me that opportunity and I can kind of run with it, I'd be pretty happy." He is projected to be paired with Jared Cowen. Today, 8:19 am
  • Maxime Talbot clears waivers, still with B's
    Maxime Talbot practiced Tuesday with Boston and he cleared waivers.

    Advice: For now, it looks like he will remain with the team, but the Bruins have the flexibility to send him to the minors. "I'm going to keep a good attitude and do whatever they ask me to do," Talbot said. "I'm just waiting now to see what's up." Today, 6:53 am
  • Brandon Manning makes Flyers' roster
    Andrew MacDonald being placed on waivers meant that Brandon Manning is a part of the Flyers' opening game roster.

    Advice: "It sucks. Mac's a great guy, but, obviously, that opened the door for me," Manning said. "I wouldn't say it's a relief. I think this is what I've been working for, and this is where I want to be, so I think I'm happy to be here for now, and I just want to stick around." Manning, 25, has participated in 21 career NHL games. He's capable of chipping in offensively and has spent a lot of time in the sin bin in the minors, making him worth keeping an eye on for fantasy purposes. Today, 6:44 am
  • Henrik Lundqvist will start on Wednesday
    Henrik Lundqvist will play between the pipes in the Rangers' opener on Wednesday.

    Advice: That obviously comes as no surprise. Lundqvist is an elite goaltender and the Rangers plan to use him in around 60 games this season, although it wouldn't be surprising if he surpasses that number. He was limited to 46 contests in 2014-15 due to a neck injury. He had a 2.25 GAA and .922 save percentage. Today, 6:36 am
  • Ryane Clowe (concussion) moved to IR list
    Ryane Clowe (concussion) has been put on New Jersey's injured reserve list.

    Advice: This is just a matter of course. Clowe has already stated that his playing career is over, but he's still under contract with New Jersey through the 2017-18 campaign. Today, 6:33 am
  • Curtis Glencross considering his options
    After being released from a second tryout, Curtis Glencross is weighing his options.

    Advice: "It’s definitely a setback and heartbreak for me knowing that this could be the end," Glencross said. He's not sure if he wants to hold out in the hope that another opportunity to play in the NHL presents itself or if he should sign in Europe. Another possibility on his mind is taking a job in Calgary. One thing he's unlikely to do is accept a two-way contract with the understanding that he'll play in the AHL. Today, 5:15 am
  • Silfverberg expected to practice Wednesday
    Jakob Silfverberg (head) should practice with the Ducks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Silfverberg got clear to rejoin the Ducks' skate on Tuesday. He was on the ice Tuesday for the first time since absorbing a hit to the head from Raffi Torres on Saturday. Today, 5:05 am
  • Chicago assigns Viktor Svedberg to minors
    Viktor Svedberg has been assigned to AHL Rockford.

  • Silfverberg (head) gets clearance to practice
    Jakob Silfverberg (head) has clearance to practice with his teammates.

    Advice: He will take part in the club's next session after skating on his own Tuesday. Silfverberg was hurt in Saturday's preseason game when he received an illegal hit to the head from San Jose's Raffi Torres. Torres was given a 41-game suspension for the check. Yesterday, 11:59 am
  • Avs release Curtis Glencross from PTO
    Curtis Glencross has been released from his professional tryout with Colorado.

    Advice: Glencross took part in camps with the Maple Leafs and Avalanche on PTOs, but he wasn't able to stick with either squad. Now, he will have to look elsewhere to continue playing. Monday, 11:17 am
  • Bruins put Maxime Talbot on waivers
    Maxime Talbot has been waived by Boston.

    Advice: His potential demotion indicates that Tyler Randell will start the season in the NHL. Talbot dressed in 18 games with the Bruins last year after he was acquired from Colorado. He collected 18 points in 81 contests in 2014-15. Monday, 10:34 am
  • GM hopeful Tyler Johnson will play Thursday
    Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman is "hopeful" that Tyler Johnson (undisclosed) will be ready to play on Thursday.

    Advice: He was hurt in Saturday's preseason finale and is listed as day-to-day. Monday, 7:47 am
  • Red Wings are happy to have 2 good goalies
    Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill is happy with the preseason performances of Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek.

    Advice: "Over the long term of the (training) camp, both guys have been real good," Blashill said. "Every single day, whether it's been games, or practices, or small games we've played (during practice). So it's like I've said -- it's better to have real good players at very every position, and goaltending is included in that, especially with the schedule we have to start the season." It will be interesting to see how the 'Wings divide their starts heading into the regular season. Sunday, 8:08 am
  • Corey Crawford leaves Saturday's game
    Corey Crawford left Saturday's game against Dallas after feeling "tight".

    Advice: Crawford was supposed to play the whole game, but head coach Joel Quenneville pulled him in the middle of the second period for "precautionary reasons". The injury isn't believed to be serious. Quenneville said he doesn't expect his starting goaltender to miss any time. Sunday, 7:46 am
  • Silfverberg (head) held out as a precaution
    Jakob Silfverberg (head) was not allowed to return to Saturday’s game for precautionary reasons.

    Advice: Silfverberg was hit in the head by Raffi Torres. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said the 24-year-old could have returned to the game in the regular season. It’s probably for the best that Silfverberg stayed out as the effect of head injuries are sometimes not felt right away. Either way, this bit of news is nice to hear. Saturday, 9:21 pm
  • Silfverberg leaves after head hit from Torres
    Jakob Silfverberg left Saturday night’s game after taking a blow to the head.

    Advice: The game is not being televised. According to writers in Anaheim, the Sharks’ Raffi Torres nailed Silfverberg with a shoulder/elbow to the head that also caused him to receive a match penalty and likely a long look from the NHL department of player safety. The 24-year-old Silfverberg had 13 goals and 39 points last season. Saturday, 8:03 pm
  • Johnson, Killorn leave with injuries Saturday
    Tyler Johnson suffered an undisclosed injury Saturday night against the Panthers.

    Advice: The Lightning also saw Alex Killorn leave with an undisclosed injury. Johnson played 7:39 before departing. Both will be re-evaluated Sunday and more information will be known then. "I can sit here and say precaution, but we won't know for sure til tomorrow," coach Jon Cooper said. Johnson had 29 goals and 72 points last season. Saturday, 7:51 pm
  • Crawford to play in Hawks' preseason finale
    Corey Crawford will get the call for the Blackhawks Saturday night in the team's final preseason game.

    Advice: He will face the Stars as he tries to gear up for another NHL campaign. Crawford enters the season as the Hawks' number one netminder and one of the top 10 goalies in the NHL. However, there is always the possibility he could be traded to give Chicago some much needed cap room should backup Scott Darling prove capable. Saturday, 10:10 am
  • Jimmy Howard continues strong pre-season play
    Jimmy Howard continued his strong pre-season play Friday night stopping 31 of 33 Toronto shots in a 4-2 Detroit win.

    Advice: Howard has looked very good the past few weeks posting a 3-0 record in pre-season games as he attempts to regain the starting job he lost to Petr Mrazek last season. That said, Mrazek has had a good training camp too. We expect coach Jeff Blashill to start the season in job-share mode and then settle on one netminder, if and when, one takes charge. Saturday, 7:06 am
  • Hakstol impressed w/ play of Brandon Manning
    Coach Dave Hakstol has been impressed with the play of defenseman Brandon Manning at training camp.

    Advice: Manning is on the bubble as a seventh or eighth defenseman with Luke Schenn but Schenn makes a lot more money at $3.6 million than Manning's $625,000. "Brandon played another strong, two-way game [Wednesday]. I see confidence in him," Hakstol said. "You see that, you know he’s been a good two-way defender and good two-way defenseman, but you are starting to see him pick his spots and get up ice. It looks like he’s a confident player out there." Saturday, 6:20 am
  • Andrew Shaw provides plenty of versatility
    Andrew Shaw has spent the last two days at left wing alongside Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.

    Advice: However, Shaw is not a stranger to playing up and down the lineup on different positions. He finished the 2014-15 campaign as a right winger on a checking line with Andrew Desjardins and Marcus Kruger, but he has been a third-line center as well. It's unclear where he'll start the upcoming season, but he will probably occupy a bottom-six role. Shaw is playing in the final year of his current contract, so there's also a chance that he could be traded at some point. Tuesday, 1:25 pm
  • Jimmy Howard makes 31 saves as Wings prevail
    Veteran goalie Jimmy Howard turned aside 31 shots in the Detroit Red Wings' 3-1 preseason triumph over the Boston Bruins Monday night.

    Advice: Howard's shutout bid was spoiled on a goal by Loui Eriksson with only 51 seconds remaining in the third period. Detroit's goals were produced by Drew Miller, Tomas Jurco and Andreas Athanasiou. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask recorded 21 saves in the loss. Monday, 7:14 pm
  • Curtis Glencross will join Avalanche on PTO
    Curtis Glencross has gone from one professional tryout to another, as he will join the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: The Avs have three preseason games remaining on the schedule this week and Glencross could be in the lineup as soon as Tuesday against Calgary. He was released from his PTO with Toronto over the weekend. Monday, 3:06 pm
  • Josh Gorges week-to-week with LBI
    Josh Gorges has a lower-body injury that may sideline him for the start of the regular season.

    Advice: His status is listed as week-to-week. Gorges records plenty of blocked shots, but he doesn't have any fantasy value beyond that. Sep 28, 11:45 am
  • Curtis Glencross released from PTO with Leafs
    Curtis Glencross has been released from his professional tryout.

    Advice: This is a little surprising considering how little depth the Maple Leafs have on their roster. Glencross had 35 points in 71 games with the Flames and Capitals in 2014-15. He should be able to latch on with another NHL club in the near future. Sep 27, 11:31 am
