Player Notes

  • Tom Wilson (upper body) exits Monday's game
    Tom Wilson didn't finish Monday's preseason game due to an upper-body injury.

    Advice: Capitals associate coach Todd Reirden described the decision to remove Wilson from the game as a precautionary one. "He was getting evaluated tonight and will be reevaluated tomorrow morning and see where he’s at," Reirden said. Wilson appeared to be hit around the mouth by Jordan Staal, which resulted in Staal getting a penalty for elbowing. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:28 am
    Day-to-Day
  • Pavel Buchnevich will debut on Tuesday
    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. He's projected to play alongside Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. "I try not to stay nervous," Buchnevich said via a translator, "but of course I think tomorrow I will feel it a little bit before the game." Rotoworld.com Today, 2:43 am
  • Curtis McElhinney begins fight for backup gig
    Curtis McElhinney won't give up his roster spot without a fight.

    Advice: "Plain and clear, I want my job back," said McElhinney. "I don’t take kindly to what happened last season." He backed that up with a 29-save performance in Columbus' 3-2 shootout victory against Boston on Monday. McElhinney ran into injury troubles last season and left plenty to be desired when he was healthy which has left him vulnerable to Joonas Korpisalo or Anton Forsberg taking his roster spot.

  • Teuvo Teravainen adjusting to the Hurricanes
    With training camp underway, Teuvo Teravainen is getting a chance to adjust to working with the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Advice: Teravainen was taken by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and won the Stanley Cup with them in 2015. He was seeing his role with the franchise steadily grow, but Chicago dealt him to Carolina over the summer. "That’s a great team and when you make that team you know you are a good player," Teravainen said Monday. "It’s really tough to make the top two lines and be a difference-maker. Everything is new for me now. It’s a fresh start, and I’m pretty excited about it. It’s a good chance to take the next step and be a difference-maker here." He should play a sizable role with the Hurricanes and that could set him up for a 50-60 point campaign, but just keep in mind that he's still a significant risk. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:17 am
  • Jon Gillies saves 35 shots vs. Oilers
    Jon Gillies turned aside 35 shots in a 4-2 preseason loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday.

    Advice: Gillies didn't get a lot of help, but he managed to impress with his individual performance. He's projected to start the campaign in the AHL after missing most of the 2015-16 campaign with a hip injury. When he did play, he posted a 2.31 GAA and .920 save percentage in seven contests with the Stockton Heat. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:08 am
