Player Notes

  • Kari Lehtonen still thinks about GM 7 loss
    Kari Lehtonen still can't explain what happened in Dallas' Game 7 loss to the St. Louis Blues back in May.

    Advice: Lehtonen allowed three goals on eight shots in the opening period and the Stars eventually lost 6-1. Lehtonen was replaced by Antti Niemi at the start of the second period. "That's how goaltending is, and that's why you have to stay as even-keel as you can," Lehtonen said. "That's why I'm not concentrating on that. I'm moving forward, and I feel good. That's all I can really tell you." From a fantasy perspective, the two-goalie system isn't ideal. Fantasy GMs should try to stay away from this goaltending duo. Today, 7:03 am
  • Holtby says Price should start for Canada
    Braden Holtby believes Carey Price should be the starting goaltender for Team Canada at the World Cup.

    Advice: Holtby won the Vezina trophy this season, while Price missed most of the year with a knee injury. "All of us want to play, but if Carey's healthy, there's no reason to not go with him," Holtby said. "He has all the experience internationally and the smart choice obviously would be that. I'm going to go there and play hard, [do] what I do, support the team in any way possible, whether it's playing or supporting another guy." Price was the starting goaltender for Canada at the last Olympics. Friday, 7:48 pm
  • Robin Lehner pulls out of World Cup
    Robin Lehner has pulled out of the World Cup.

    Advice: Lehner has been dealing with an ankle injury. Getting healthy for the regular season is more important than making an appearance for Sweden. Lehner was also plagued by injuries last season, as he played just 25 games for the Sabres during the regular season. Jhonas Enroth will take his spot on the roster. Friday, 7:08 am
  • Jhonas Enroth will represent Team Sweden
    Jhonas Enroth will represent Team Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey.

    Advice: Enroth will replace injured Sabres goalie Robin Lehner. The 28-year-old played in 16 games with the Los Angeles Kings last season and had a 7-5-1 record with a 2.17 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage. Henrik Lundqvist (NY Rangers) and Jacob Markstrom (Vancouver) will be the other two goalies for Sweden. Friday, 6:57 am
  • Roberto Luongo feeling better than expected
    Roberto Luongo says his injured hip feels better than expected at this point.

    Advice: "I started skating Aug. 5 and there has been slow progression but we've ramped it up here the past week or so and it has been good," said Luongo. "I'm not 100 percent; it's a five month rehab. But I'm feeling better than I thought I would. I thought it would be a slower progression, especially on the ice. It has gone fairly quickly and I'm happy about that. If the season were to start tomorrow, I probably wouldn't be able to go. But I feel good where I'm at and I'm excited about it." If when Luongo is fully healthy, the Panthers will probably look to decrease his workload. The fact that Florida also signed James Reimer this off-season won't help Luongo's fantasy value.
