  • Zdeno Chara scores in loss to Team Canada
    Zdeno Chara scored in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Team Canada.

    Advice: Team Europe played a solid game and were the better team tonight, but they fell just short. Europe led 1-0 late in the third period before Canada scored two goals (Bergeron and Marchand) in the final three minutes of regulation. It's a disappointing end for Team Europe, but no one expected them to make it to the final before the tournament began. 29 minutes ago
  • Matt Dumba scores in loss to Winnipeg
    Matt Dumba scored in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: Dumba opened the scoring 52 seconds into the second period. The goal was scored on the power play and was assisted by Mike Reilly and Erik Haula. Dumba scored 10 goals and 26 points in 81 games last season. 42 minutes ago
  • Zach Redmond scores second goal of preseason
    Zach Redmond scored his second goal of the preseason in Thursday's 4-3 OT loss to the Senators.

    Advice: Redmond isn't known for his offensive production, but he's shown an ability to score this preseason. Although he won't produce much this season, the preseason goals should help him stick in the NHL this season. Brendan Gallagher and Michael McCarron also scored for the Canadiens. 54 minutes ago
  • Anthony Bitetto stays hot in preseason
    Anthony Bitetto scored in Thursday's 3-2 OT loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Bitetto has been productive through two preseason games, as he also registered a pair of assists on Tuesday. The 26-year-old played in just 28 games last year and unless an injury occurs, he may not play much more in 2016-17. Yannick Weber, who Bitetto will likely battle for playing time, also scored for the Predators in this one. Today, 6:55 pm
  • Hampus Lindholm won't go to camp with no deal
    Hampus Lindholm won't attend Ducks training camp until he signs a new contract.

    Advice: Lindholm is reportedly looking for an eight-year deal worth more than $48 million dollars. The 22-year-old had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 games last season. "Our plan is to report to the team once we have a contract signed," agent Claude Lemieux said. "Until then Hampus is training in Sweden." This isn't shocking news, but it would be surprising to see the Ducks start the regular season without Lindholm on their blue line. Today, 6:00 pm

  • Capitals reassign Colby Williams to the AHL
    Colby Williams has been cut from the Washington Capitals' training camp roster.

    Advice: Williams had five goals and 12 points in 19 games with the WHL's Regina Pats in 2015-16. The Capitals selected him with the 173rd overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. This season he's projected to play for AHL Hershey. Today, 3:42 pm
  • Capitals cut Dmitry Zaitsev from camp roster
    Dmitry Zaitsev has been removed from the Washington Capitals' training camp roster.

    Advice: Zaitsev had seven goals and 22 points in 53 games with the NAHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights. This season he's expected to play for the WHL's Moose Jaw Warriors. Today, 3:35 pm

    Josh Mahura has been cut from the Anaheim Ducks' training camp roster.

    Advice: Mahura will report to WHL Red Deer. He was taken with the 85th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Today, 3:00 pm
  • Coyotes cut Brandon Burlon from camp roster
    Brandon Burlon has been reassigned to AHL Tucson.

    Advice: Arizona invited Burlon to attend its training camp, but the 26-year-old blueliner had inked an AHL deal, so this move was expected. He had four goals and 21 points in 56 AHL contests last season. Today, 2:57 pm
  • Aaron Ekblad had whiplash, not a concussion
    Although there was some concern that Aaron Ekblad suffered a concussion during the World Cup, that wasn't the final diagnosis.

    Advice: Ekblad was dealing with concussion-like symptoms, but what it turned out to be was whiplash. "The way I was told, it was about blood flow," Ekblad said. "When you get whiplash like that, there's restricted blood flow to the head and that causes systems because the blood doesn't drain out of head as fast. That's why you get symptoms without it being a concussion." While an injury is never good news, the fact that it wasn't a concussion has to come as a relief, especially after he dealt with one in January. He took part in Thursday's morning skate. Today, 12:26 pm
  • Flyers remove Robert Hagg from camp roster
    Robert Hagg has been cut from the Philadelphia Flyers' training camp roster.

    Advice: Hagg will now report to AHL Lehigh Valley. He had 11 points and 42 penalty minutes in 65 AHL contests in 2015-16. Today, 12:19 pm
  • Rasmus Ristolainen, unsigned, skates with BUF
    Although Rasmus Ristolainen is still a restricted free agent, he is skating with the Sabres.

    Advice: Typically RFAs stay out of training camp until a deal is agreed upon, but Ristolainen put in a request to work with the team and the Sabres granted it. He had nine goals and 41 points in 82 contests last season. Today, 10:10 am
  • Stefan Elliott signs with KHL squad
    Stefan Elliott has agreed to terms with the KHL's AK Bars Kazan.

    Advice: Elliott had two goals and six points in 21 games with the Arizona Coyotes and Nashville Predators last season. The 25-year-old has appeared in 84 career NHL contests. Today, 8:59 am
  • Canucks send Jordan Subban to the AHL
    Jordan Subban has been cut from the Vancouver Canucks' training camp roster.

    Advice: Subban had 11 goals and 36 points in 67 AHL contests with the Utica Comets last season. He'll begin the 2016-17 campaign with the Comets as well, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him make his Canucks debut before the season's done. Today, 8:29 am

  • Trevor Daley (ankle) gets an assist Wednesday
    Trevor Daley registered an assist in Wednesday's 2-0 preseason win over Chicago.

    Advice: Daley was participating in his first game since breaking his ankle on May 20th. He didn't appear to be dealing with any lingering issues stemming from the injury. Today, 8:17 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.

    Advice: Schultz is only expected to need four-to-seven days to recover from the ailment, so unless that changes this isn't a concerning development. He had a goal and 10 points in 81 contests in 2015-16. Today, 8:12 am
  • Damon Severson might play with Andy Greene
    Damon Severson might end up playing alongside Andy Greene this season.

    Advice: Severson has been paired with Greene before, but in 2015-16 Greene and Adam Larsson spent the vast majority of the season playing together. The Devils traded away Larsson though, so there's an opening. "You see how successful we were before I got injured as a pairing," Severson said of his previous stint with Greene during the 2014-15 campaign. "I was the most comfortable ever since I got here with him. Obviously, he’s a good defenseman and an easy guy to play with. It makes you excited to play with a guy like that. As a captain, he’s one of the greatest leaders on our team. To be able to play alongside that will just help me as a player. Hopefully, we’ll stick together for a long time, feed off each other and play big minutes for the team and be successful." Today, 7:50 am
  • Marc-Andre Bergeron attempting NHL comeback
    For Marc-Andre Bergeron, a return to the NHL in 2016-17 wasn't part of his initial plan.

    Advice: Bergeron is a veteran of 490 NHL games, but the undersized defenseman's body "took a beating" over his years in North America and he made the move to Switzerland for the 2013-14 campaign. He's enjoyed his three seasons with Zurich SC, but at the age of 35 he's giving an NHL comeback a shot via a professional tryout with the Columbus Blue Jackets. "It took me a couple days to consider this when my agent called," he said. "But then I was like, ‘Let’s do this!' I’m only thinking about this now. My kids are back home (in Quebec) and settled in to school. I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself, but I like the way things are going right now. I just want to give it my all. I’m here and feeling good." Today, 7:33 am
  • Stepan Falkovsky heads to the minors

  • Report: Lindholm wants more than 8-years/$48M
    Hampus Lindholm is reportedly looking for a deal in excess of $48 million over eight years.

    Advice: There might be a significant gap between Lindholm and the Ducks as Anaheim is believed to be seeking an annual cap hit in the $5 million to $5.4 million ranger, which is where Morgan Rielly and Seth Jones are respectively. Lindholm had 10 goals and 28 points in 80 contests last season. He's a restricted free agent. Today, 6:41 am

  • Tyutin already has some comfort with Varlamov
    Fedor Tyutin is looking forward to playing in front of fellow Russian Semyon Varlamov this year.

    Advice: "It'll be great," Tyutin said. "I had a Russian goalie in Columbus (Sergei Bobrovsky) and a goalie is a defenseman's best friend. I have known Semyon for quite a bit and that will make it that much easier, more comfortable for me to join and play on this team." He was bought out by Columbus during the off-season and landed a one-year contract with the Avalanche shortly afterward once free agency started. Today, 6:01 am
  • Nathan Beaulieu will look to prove himself
    Nathan Beaulieu is looking to contribute more offensively this season.

    Advice: "I know what I'm capable of doing," he said. "They're going to give me the opportunity and I have to seize it. I have a lot to prove. Even though it's my third year in the league, every year you're trying to make the team and move up in the lineup." Beaulieu feels there's an opening to be more offensive this year after P.K. Subban was traded and he is vying for a top-four role on the Canadiens. He could also get power-play time on the second unit. Today, 5:27 am
  • Dmitry Kulikov joins Buffalo's camp
    Dmitry Kulikov joined the Sabres for practice on Wednesday and he impressed coach Dan Bylsma.

    Advice: "You see Dmitry out there, his commanding presence and skating ability," Bylsma said. He heard a "couple comments that the ability of the D-man to get the puck up to the forwards improved today with Dmitry. That's good to see." Kulikov represented Russia at the World Cup of Hockey, so he feels prepared for the start of his first season with Buffalo. Today, 4:49 am
  • Brandon Montour save Ducks from shutout
    Brandon Montour scored 8:05 minutes into the third period to save the Anaheim Ducks from a shutout. They lost a 6-1 contest to the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night.

    Advice: Montour found the back of the net 12 times for the AHL San Diego Gulls last year and had 45 assists, but he failed to get any assistance Wednesday night. His wrist shot goal went into the Kings’ net unaided. Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Troy Stecher drew 1st blood in losing effort
    Troy Stecher scored the first of three goals in the Edmonton Oilers 5-2 losing effort Wednesday night against the Vancouver Canucks in preseason play.

    Advice: Stecher is moving up from the University of North Dakota where he scored eight goals and had 21 assists last year. The other goals scored by the Canucks in Wednesday night’s contest belonged to Brendan Gaunce and Griffin Reinhart. Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Aaron Ekblad (UBI) gets medically cleared
    Aaron Ekblad (upper body) has received medical clearance to play.

    Advice: It was feared that Ekblad could miss the start of the season after he suffered an upper-body injury at the World Cup of Hockey, but after he returned to Florida for evaluation he seemed to be fine. Ekblad should be back on the ice with his teammates soon. Yesterday, 11:26 am
  • Nathan Beaulieu nets 4 points in win over WSH
    Nathan Beaulieu scored a goal and three assists in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: Beaulieu has always been a solid puck mover, but it hasn't translated into points at the NHL level. That could change this year as Beaulieu enters his third full season in the NHL. If he continues playing as well as he played tonight, there's a chance that head coach Michel Therrien could opt to play him on a pairing with veteran Shea Weber (that wouldn't hurt his fantasy stock). Tuesday, 7:42 pm
  • Anthony Bitetto has 2 assists in win
    Anthony Bitetto registered a pair of assists in Nashville's 2-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

    Advice: The two organizations played a pair of split-squad exhibition games tonight. The Panthers won the first game 4-1 and the Preds came out on top in the second contest. Bitetto assisted on goals by Miikka Salomaki and Pontus Aberg. Bitetto played a team-high 23:05 in this one and he finished with a plus-1 rating and two shots on goal. Bitetto spent a good chunk of time with the Predators last season, but he mostly served as a healthy scratch in 2015-16. He had a nice night at the office, but it's important to remember it's still early in the preseason. Tuesday, 7:06 pm
  • Aaron Ekblad (UBI) could be ready for opener
    It sounds like Aaron Ekblad (upper body) should be available for the start of the season.

    Advice: Coach Gerard Gallant said on Monday that if the season started in two days then he believed that Ekblad would play. He has been skating on his own, so the next positive sign will be when he joins his teammates for practice. Tuesday, 3:31 pm
  • Zach Redmond OK with being depth defender
    Zach Redmond isn't worried about the uphill climb he will face for ice time in Montreal this season.

    Advice: He is excited to be a member of the Canadiens and scored a goal in his preseason debut on Monday night in a 3-2 loss to New Jersey. Montreal already has seven defensemen with NHL contracts, so Redmond may not get an opportunity to play unless injuries occur. Tuesday, 8:19 am
  • Lindholm, Enroth scratched vs Sweden
    Hampus Lindholm and Jhonas Enroth will be scratched from Sunday's semi-final match against Team Europe.

    Advice: Nether Lindholm nor Enroth have dressed in the tournament proper thus far, with Lindholm briefly appearing in a pre-lim game two weeks ago now. A tough way to begin one's season, unless Sweden goes on to win gold, that is. Sunday, 9:40 am

  • 'Ekblad is fine', coach Gallant informs us
    Florida Panthers fans rejoice, coach Gerard Gallant has noted that Aaron "Ekblad is fine."

    Advice: The Panthers' and Team North America's top defender missed the final round robin game due to an upper body injury, widely suspected to be a concussion. Per Gallant, "You see him out there skating already. I think it was a little scary, but he feels real good. He's going to [skate] and see how he feels, but everything looks good." Draft accordingly. Saturday, 5:28 pm
  • Montour could make Ducks' decision difficult
    Brandon Montour will be one of the players to watch during training camp.

    Advice: Montour is coming off of a strong season in the minors where he recorded 12 goals and 57 points in 68 contests with the AHL's San Diego Gulls. "The biggest thing with Brandon is I was surprised at his output points-wise," Gulls coach Dallas Eakins said. "These young defenseman that come into the league -- the American Hockey League, it’s a tough league. It’s an extremely hard league. And the overall season that he had was highly impressive and obviously caught the ice of people everywhere." Montour will have a tough time cracking the Ducks' roster at this time, but if he has a strong training camp then it will be interesting to see what Anaheim does. Friday, 7:09 am
  • Trevor Daley (ankle) is ready for camp
    Trevor Daley's ankle has responded well to his training over the last three or four weeks.

    Advice: Daley missed the last nine games of the Penguins' playoff run after breaking his ankle. "I feel great," said Daley. "I don't feel like I've missed a step at all. I feel good about my game, and I'm just excited to get it going." He's in a bit of an interesting position as this is the second campaign in a row that he'll be opening the season with the defending champions. Though he wasn't part of Chicago's 2015 Stanley Cup-winning run, he was part of the Blackhawks at the start of 2015-16, so he got to see firsthand the challenges that come with being on the team that everyone's looking to dethrone. Wednesday, 2:23 am
  • Report: Ekblad (UBI) to return to Florida
    Aaron Ekblad will reportedly return to Florida in the next couple of days for evaluation.

    Advice: It was thought that he would remain with Team North America during the World Cup, but the Panthers want their team doctors to take a look at him. Still, it seems to be more of a cautionary measure at this time than anything long term. It still hasn't been determined that Ekblad has a concussion, but it's understandable that Florida wants to be careful with their stud defender. Tuesday, 1:57 pm
  • Aaron Ekblad day-to-day with UBI
    Aaron Ekblad remains day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

    Advice: He didn't take part in Tuesday's practice after he missed Monday's World Cup game versus Russia. There's a chance that Ekblad could be shut down for the rest of the tournament. Tuesday, 11:03 am
  • Aaron Ekblad undergoing tests and treatment
    It hasn't been determined yet if Aaron Ekblad has a concussion.

    Advice: He does have a stiff neck though and he is receiving treatment. Ekblad will visit with a doctor and an update on his status should come after that. It isn't clear if he will be available for the rest of the World Cup of Hockey, but it is expected that he will remain in Toronto. Tuesday, 7:49 am
  • Aaron Ekblad sat Monday due to UBI
    Aaron Ekblad didn't play on Monday night for Team North America because of an upper-body injury.

    Advice: According to multiple media outlets, the Panthers defenseman is suffering from a mild concussion. It is believed he was hurt on a hard hit from Finland's Leo Komarov on Sunday. Ekblad is listed as day-to-day for now. Tuesday, 6:50 am
