Player Notes

  • Marc-Andre Fleury gets start vs. Toronto
    Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes Wednesday night versus Toronto.

    Advice: Fleury is having his best regular season yet and will go for career win 301, then again, as we saw in the playoffs last year, it doesn't always translate.
    Today, 4:52 pm
  • Jay Harrison, Brad Malone out vs.Panthers
    Jay Harrison and Brad Malone will be out against the Panthers on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Both Harrison and Malone are healthy scratches. Michal Jordan (no, not that MJ) will see his first action of the season and sixth career game.
    Today, 4:19 pm
  • Tylers Myers a late scratch, Andre Benoit in
    Tyler Myers was a late scratch on Wednesday night against the Jets, and Andre Benoit subbed in for him.

    Advice: Coach Nolan says that Myers is out with a lower body injury. Benoit for his part only has value in the deepest of fantasy leagues with no points and eight PIMs thus far on the season.
    Today, 3:55 pm
  • Michael Latta sits against Islanders
    Michael Latta will be a healthy scratch against the Islanders on Wednesday night.

    Advice: The 23-year-old has one assist and 19 PIMs in on 16 games this season.
    Today, 3:47 pm
  • Ben Smith seeks more production
    Ben Smith wants to contribute more offensively.

    Advice: He has one goal and one assist in 21 games this season, but coach Joel Quenneville is satisfied with the way Smith is playing. "When you look at guys that, they're doing other things," said Chicago's bench boss. "They've got a big responsibility on the PK, and they're doing the job in that area. That's why it was such a nice year [last season] for him; the production was a bonus on top of that." He posted 14 goals and 26 points in 75 matches in 2013-14.
    Today, 3:13 pm
  • Braden Holtby to start against Islanders
    Braden Holtby will get the start against the Islanders on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Holtby and his Caps have an opportunity to take control of their destiny with a win, or sweep in this home-and-home over the Islanders as the Caps sit just three points outside of the second Wild Card slot entering the series. For a team that's expected to be in the playoffs, entering December in control of their own fate will be a big boost of confidence.
    Today, 3:09 pm
  • Kyle Palmieri showcases skill, scores again
    Kyle Palmieri tallied his third goal in five games on Tuesday night.

    Advice: It held up as the game winner versus Calgary. "That's a goal-scorer's goal," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "You just see those things. That's what they do. You find ways to score. It's at the end of the period. Sneak it through Hilly's legs when it looks like there was no real place to put it through." Palmieri has been playing with Ryan Kesler and Patrick Maroon on the second line. The 23-year-old has good scoring instincts and he's worth keeping an eye on as a waiver option.
    Today, 2:43 pm
  • Valtteri Filppula back to playing center
    Valtteri Filppula has been back to playing center lately after he was skating on the wing alongside Steve Stamkos.

    Advice: "I like the middle, and if I had to pick, I would probably pick the middle. But I feel like in our system, how we play, it's not a huge difference," he said. "You play the position you are at in the moment. At center you take more faceoffs, and I don't mind that." The Lightning want more depth down the middle, but Filppula will probably still get ice time with Stamkos on the power play.
    Today, 12:01 pm
  • Victor Hedman 'very close' to return
    Victor Hedman (finger) received clearance to take part in contact drills.

    Advice: He was a regular practice jersey during Wednesday's optional morning skate. "If he's in a regular jersey, he's very, very close," associate coach Rick Bowness said. "If he's still in a red jersey, you are still looking at a few more days, but he's got to be very close at this point." He could be back next week, but he hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's match against Ottawa.
    Today, 11:55 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Alex Stalock may be back on Wednesday
    Alex Stalock (knee) is on the ice with his teammates for practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Troy Grosenick, who was called up during Stalock's absence, wasn't present so he may have been sent back to the minors. If that's the case then Stalock may be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Calgary. Stay tuned.
    Today, 10:40 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Preds' Ryan Ellis scores in win over Kings
    Ryan Ellis tallied a goal in Nashville's 4-3 shootout win against Los Angeles.

    Advice: His second marker of the season tied the game at 2-2 late in the second period. Ellis became the third defenseman on the Predators, after Shea Weber and Roman Josi, to hit double digits in points.
    Today, 10:35 am
  • Blues bring up goalie Jordan Binnington
    Jordan Binnington is up with the Blues on emergency recall.

    Advice: In nine games with the AHL's Chicago Wolves, he has posted a 6-2-1 record to go with a 1.89 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. Brian Elliott suffered a lower-body injury on Tuesday, so Binnington will back up Jake Allen.
    Today, 9:45 am
    Not Active
  • Flames waive Devin Setoguchi
    Devin Setoguchi has been placed on waivers by Calgary.

    Advice: He hasn't earned a point in 12 games this season and has a minus-7 rating. He'll probably head to the minors should he pass through.
    Today, 9:38 am
  • Erik Condra scores first goal of the year
    Erik Condra scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over St. Louis.

    Advice: He got the Senators on the board in the third period to spark the team's comeback victory. Condra has had a tough time cracking Ottawa's lineup this season. He's suited up in just seven games and Tuesday's goal was his first point.
    Today, 8:25 am
  • Mathieu Perreault hurt Tuesday, day-to-day
    Mathieu Perreault is listed as day-to-day after he left Tuesday night's game against Columbus.

  • Ryan Nugent-Hopkins ends point drought

  • Wisniewski has assists in back-to-back games
    James Wisniewski had an assist in a 4-2 loss to Winnipeg Tuesday night.

    Advice: Wisniewski also recorded an assist in his previous game on Saturday. He now has two goals and eight assists in 18 contests in 2014-15.
    Today, 6:00 am
  • T.J. Brodie nets two points in loss
    T.J. Brodie scored his career-high fifth goal of the season and added an assist in the Flames' 3-2 loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.

    Advice: Brodie was inches away from another goal as he railed the post minutes after getting the Flames on the board with their first goal of the game. The breakout blue-liner was a plus-1 and logged 24:20 of ice time in another outstanding effort. He now has 18 points in 23 games this season. Jiri Hudler scored the other goal for the Flames. Mark Giordano and Curtis Glencross each picked up helpers.
    Yesterday, 11:30 pm
  • Corey Schneider solid in loss to Canucks
    Cory Schneider stopped 34-of-36 shots in a 2-0 loss to Vancouver on Tuesday.

    Advice: Making his first start after getting a well-deserved break on Saturday, the Devils’ number one was rock steady but did not receive any offensive support. It was Schneider's second visit since being traded to the Devils at the 2013 NHL Draft, and the Canucks welcomed him back with a flurry of activity. Schneids now has a 9-9-2 record to go with 2.56 goals against average and .916 save percentage on the season.
    Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Ryan Miller picks up career SO number 31
    Ryan Miller stopped all 20 shots he faced in the Canucks' 2-0 win over New Jersey on Tuesday to pick up his second shutout of the season.

    Advice: It wasn’t an extremely busy night for Miller but the veteran made some quality saves in the third period to hold off any rally from the Devils. Miller is now tied for the NHL lead in wins (14) with Nashville’s Pekka Rinne. Miller is shaping up to be one of the best value bargains in any fantasy draft this season with the way the Canucks are pulling out wins. He brings a 2.47 GAA and .908 save percentage into his next start.
