Player Notes

  • Zach Parise (back) is 'good to go'
    Zach Parise (back) says he's "good to go" for the World Cup.

    Advice: "I feel really good," Parise said. "All the rehab went and is going well. I’m happy with the progress. The doctors were really happy today. … I’m really happy with it. I’m good to go." Parise dealt with a herniated disk in his back and it forced him to miss the playoffs last year. The 32-year-old had 25 goals and 53 points in 70 games during the 2015-16 season. He should easily surpass those totals if he stays healthy. Today, 6:43 am
  • Alex Steen could be ready for season opener
    Alex Steen (shoulder) might be ready for the regular season opener, according to Blues GM Doug Armstrong.

    Advice: Steen had to pull out of the World Cup, but there's some optimism around his status for the start of the year. "We're still quite a ways from camp, but I would think he'll jump right into the flow drills — that's the idea now," Armstrong said. "But we're not going to be penny-wise, pound-foolish. Whether he participates in battle drills in early September or mid-September, I'm not that concerned about. (But) he looks like he's in great shape, he's ahead of schedule and we're hoping that he's ready for Game 1. If not Game 1, very early in the season, but all things are very positive." Whenever he returns to full health, Steen will be an intriguing fantasy option. Head coach Ken Hitchcock has already said that he plans on playing Steen with Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko.

  • 'Yotes happy to land Lawson Crouse
    Coyotes GM John Chayka was thrilled with his acquisition of Lawson Crouse.

    Advice: "We are very pleased to acquire Lawson," said Chayka. "He's a big, physical, power forward who is a strong skater with good hands. Players of his caliber and profile are extremely hard to find." Crouse was acquired from Florida earlier today. The 11th overall pick in 2015 already has NHL-ready size, as he's 6-foot-4 and 212 pounds. The Coyotes aren't as deep as the Panthers, so this trade could lead to Crouse getting to the NHL as soon as this season. Thursday, 9:36 am
  • Joseph Blandisi wants to be more consistent
    Joseph Blandisi is looking to be more consistent in 2016-17.

    Advice: The 22-year-old played in 41 games for the Devils during his rookie season. He had five goals and 17 points during that stretch. He'll look to make more of an impact this season. "If we look across the league, it's a lot of young guys making big booms now," Blandisi said. "So it's up to us to help the team score goals and bring the energy night in and night out. You want to be consistent, and I think that's something I need to work on. It's been my focus throughout the summer." Thursday, 6:18 am
  • GM: Jamie Benn will be 100% to start season
    Jamie Benn (core muscle surgery) is expected to be 100 percent healthy for the start of the regular season.

    Advice: Benn's injury forced him to pull out of the World Cup, but it shouldn't keep him from being completely healthy when it matters most. It's good news for his fantasy stock, as he's been a point-producing machine over the last two seasons. Benn scored 41 goals and 89 points in 82 games last season. He should be a top-five pick in most fantasy drafts. Tuesday, 1:43 pm
