    Advice: Boychuk hasn't played in an exhibition game yet due to the ailment.

  • Report: Buchnevich has an out-clause of sorts
    Pavel Buchnevich reportedly has an out-clause of sorts in his deal.

    Advice: It might allow Buchnevich to return to the KHL if he ends up with AHL Hartford rather than the Rangers. It's not exactly clear what the details of it, but it sounds like it's not as simple as Buchnevich will either play for the Rangers or in the KHL. He still might end up playing for Hartford for at least part of the campaign if it makes sense to do so. He had 16 goals and 37 points in 58 KHL contests in 2015-16. Today, 8:27 am
  • Brett Sutter isn't getting special treatment
    Brett Sutter isn't making a big deal out of the fact that being with the Kings is providing him with an opportunity to play for his father.

    Advice: Los Angeles acquired Sutter from Minnesota back in February, but he spent the rest of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors. Due to that, Monday's preseason game was the first time that Brett played for his father, Kings head coach Darryl Sutter, since the fourth grade. Still, that wasn't an emotional experience for Brett. "You know, I think the thing that makes it unique and cool is that there aren’t any of those moments," the younger Sutter said. "When I get to the rink, he’s giving me [grief] just like he is the other 40 guys here, and treating me just like every other player, and I think that’s kind of the coolest part. There’s that separation of when you leave the rink we’re family, but when you get here, it’s time to go to work, and I think that’s the part I respect the most about the whole thing. And the way the guys have treated the situation right from day one last year – I think that’s been the coolest thing. It’s been all business once we’re at the rink." Today, 7:57 am
  • Drake Caggiula might make Oilers as center
    Drake Caggiula might end up earning a roster spot with the Edmonton Oilers as a center.

    Advice: Caggiula spent most of his time with the University of North Dakota serving as a left winger, but he grew up playing center and so far it looks like he might serve in that role with the Oilers. Having Caggiula play up the middle would give the Edmonton Oilers the ability to shift Leon Draisaitl from the third-line center spot to the second-line right wing, so if Caggiula can prove that he's NHL ready then it will have some positive ripple effects with Edmonton. Caggiula made a good impression on Wednesday when he scored twice in a preseason game. Today, 7:46 am
  • Zach Werenski gets assist in preseason game

"You can just tell he’s going to be a hell of a player," teammate Brandon Dubinsky said. "The poise with the puck. His ability to see the ice and to naturally jump up in the play, to make plays. I’m really excited. He’s a hell of a player. He’s going to help us a lot this year." Today, 7:32 am
  • Blues release Yan Stastny from PTO
    Yan Stastny has been released from his professional tryout.

  • Pekka Rinne expects a 'jump-start' from WCH
    Pekka Rinne feels his participation in the World Cup of Hockey will lead to a stronger start to the regular season.

    Advice: "I think it's going to give you a little bit (of a) jump-start," he said. "It was a great experience. Just going on the ice a little bit earlier than usual in the summer, I think it's only going to help (at) the beginning of the season. Right now, of course my focus is on being back on the ice with my teammates and getting back in game shape." Rinne and his Nashville teammates expect him to bounce back this season. Today, 6:48 am

"He wants to prove he can be in the net and be a capable goaltender when he gets the opportunity," coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's had two opportunities to this point, and he's been really good in both of them. It gives you a comfortable feeling when you see a guy like that be able to backstop your team." Nilsson will back up Robin Lehner this season. Today, 4:35 am
  • Nick Schultz (LBI) should be fine by opener
    Nick Schultz sustained a lower-body injury on Tuesday, but he should be fine in time for the season opener.

  • Drake Caggiula looks good in preseason game
    Drake Caggiula scored twice in Wednesday's 5-3 preseason loss to Vancouver.

"He’s come to make the team, he’s come to take somebody’s job," said Oilers coach Todd McLellan. "I’m getting more and more confident in playing him every night in any situation. He’s a very competitive guy, controls the pace of a shift, competes all over the rink, pays the price to get things done." Caggiula had 25 goals and 51 points in 39 NCAA games last season. Yesterday, 7:38 am

    Ben Holmstrom racked up 14 penalty minutes in Tuesday's 4-0 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

    Advice: The Islanders were split into two teams tonight. One team played an exhibition game against the Rangers (the Isles lost 5-2) and the other half played against the Flyers in another losing effort. Holmstrom picked up Amazingly, Holmstrom picked up all of his penalty minutes in the third period, as he got an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and a cross-checking penalty (with a misconduct). The 29-year-old hasn't played in an NHL regular season game since 2011-12 and he probably won't play in many more this season. Tuesday, 7:23 pm

    Pavel Buchnevich will make his debut with the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Buchnevich is making the move to North America after establishing himself in the KHL. The 21-year-old had 16 goals and 37 points in 58 KHL contests in 2015-16.

His tenure with the Reign produced more goals at five, but fewer points with seven. During regular season play, he has scored only two NHL goals with the most recent coming in the 2013-2014 season for the Carolina Hurricanes. Monday, 10:17 pm

  • Stars are still in goalie-share mode
    The Stars will likely still be in a job share situation in net to begin the 2016-17 season.

    Advice: Probably not the news poolies want to hear. It seems as if Dallas coach Lindy Ruff is still confident with his tandem of Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi despite significant inconsistency last season. Is it just us, or does a Ben Bishop trade to Dallas just make too much sense? Sunday, 7:58 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. Sunday, 6:33 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. Sunday, 5:37 am
  • Werenski expected to practice on Tuesday
    Zach Werenski, who is nursing a lower body injury, is expected to return to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: Great news for both the youngster and the Blue Jackets, who are both fully invested in seeing his talents blossom as soon as possible. Saturday, 5:55 pm
  • Vasilevskiy scratched vs Canada in semi-final
    Andrei Vasilevskiy will be scratched for Saturday's semi-final match against Canada.

    Advice: Vasilevskiy has yet to suit up for Russia in the World Cup, which isn't terribly surprising given he has Sergei Bobrovkski and Semyon Varlamov ahead of him. Fantasy owners still should eye the young netminder as a solid back-up option, especially in deeper leagues. Saturday, 3:54 pm
  • Boychuk sidelined with upper body injury
    Johnny Boychuk has been sidelined with an upper body injury.

    Advice: Coach Capuano noted that this is an ailment that's been "nagging" his stud defender, and there's no timetable for his return. However, it should be noted that neither party seems overly worried about the Boychuk. So this likely a cautious maneuver than anything else. Expect Boychuk to enter the season ready to try to finally hit the 10-goal mark after striking nine in each of the last two. Saturday, 10:01 am
  • Zach Werenski (groin) is out a week
    Zach Werenski's lower-body issue has been reported as a groin injury.
