Player Notes

  • Ales Hemsky out 7-10 days with groin injury
    Ales Hemsky will miss the next seven-to-10 days with a groin injury.

    Advice: Not an ideal start to the campaign, but at least the veteran forward won't miss much time. Since joining Dallas two seasons ago, Hemsky has posted 24 goals and 71 points while missing just 13 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am
  • Capitals hope to get production from Connolly
    The Washington Capitals are hoping to get offensive production from Brett Connolly.

    Advice: The Caps inked Connolly to a one-year $850,000 contract in the off-season after he was non-tendered by Boston. Connolly was selected sixth overall in 2010 and has a lot of offensive upside but the 24-year-old has floundered at times. He had nine goals and 25 points last season and the Capitals are hoping that they get more production from him as a bottom-six forward. Look for a 25-30 point season from Connolly so his draftability looks to be low. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am
  • Bryan Rust misses practice
    Bryan Rust missed practice on Saturday for the second straight day.

    Advice: No word on the injury but it's not expected to keep him out of the lineup for any significant period of time. Rust had a great playoff for the Penguins as the rookie had six goals and nine points in 23 games after 11 points in 41 regular season outings. Looking forward, he should be in the 25-30 point range if he is a bottom six forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:26 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.

  • Beau Bennett excited about chance with Devils
    Beau Bennett is thrilled about his chance to play with the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: Bennett was picked up by the Devils in a trade with the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins at the Entry Draft and the Devils re-signed him to a one-year deal worth $725,000. The oft-injured forward has always been highly regarded but just when he makes some headway, it seems like he gets hurt. He has just 16 goals and 45 points in 129 games in four NHL seasons and needs to stay healthy one season to show what he is capable of doing. He had 12 points in 33 games last season.
