Player Notes

  • Shea Weber scores GWG vs. Islanders
    Shea Weber scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.

    Advice: Weber's one-timer on the power play gave the Canadiens a 3-2 lead with just under three minutes remaining in regulation. He also picked up an assist on Phillip Danault's goal earlier in the third frame. Weber is off to a great start with his new team. The 31-year-old has picked up at least one point in four straight games and he's scored in three of his last four games. Weber has three goals and nine points in seven games this season. He's averaging 26 minutes of ice time per game so far. He's a must-start whenever the Canadiens are in action. Today, 7:05 pm
  • Joe Morrow To Be Healthy Scratch on Wednesday
    Joe Morrow will be a healthy scratch Wednesday when the Bruins invade Broadway to take on the Rangers

    Advice: Morrow was scratched on Tuesday night when the Bruins lost 5-0 to the Minnesota Wild, and will remain on the sidelines. Joining him in the press box will be Danton Heinen. Today, 4:55 pm
  • Adam Clendening & Dylan McIlrath To Sit
    Adam Clendening will sit out for the second straight game

    Advice: Clendening missed most of last season mired in press boxes for the Penguins and Oilers after stops in Chicago and Vancouver. Young blueliner Dylan McIlrath will join him as the other scratch. The 25-year old has only dressed in one contest in 2015-16, skating for 9:14 and contributing nothing for fantasy owners - if there are any. Adjust your rosters if you must, but the likelihood of either these players making any impact in 2016-17 is minimal. Today, 4:38 pm
  • Rickard Rakell practices Wednesday
    Rickard Rakell took part in Wednesday's optional skate.

    Advice: Rakell is trying to get into game shape after missing training camp and the start of the season. He was a restricted free agent and while he did ink a six-year, $22.8 million contract on Oct. 14, he wasn't immediately able to join the team due to visa issues. Rakell needs to consult with the team trainers, but it sounds like the next step will be for him to take contact. Today, 12:49 pm
  • Cody Eakin (knee) isn't close to returning
    Cody Eakin (knee) has been skating.

    Advice: While that's a positive, Stars coach Lindy Ruff cautioned that Eakin is still "a ways away." Eakin was initially projected to return in early November and it's not clear if that's still on the table. Today, 12:08 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Robin Lehner remains day-to-day with illness
    Robin Lehner is still dealing with his illness.

    Advice: That makes Lehner somewhat doubtful for Thursday's contest. Of course there probably won't be much time between him feeling better and his return to the lineup. Today, 12:04 pm
  • Ryan Getzlaf's a game-time decision Wednesday
    Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) will be a game-time decision Wednesday night.

    Advice: As previously reported, Getzlaf's upper-body condition might be a forearm injury from when he was struck by the puck during Tuesday's contest. He's off to a great start this season with a goal and eight points. The silver lining here is that even if Getzlaf ultimately can't play on Wednesday, clearly this isn't being treated like anything other than a short-term injury. Today, 11:54 am
  • Kris Letang (UBI) practices Wednesday
    Kris Letang (upper body) participated in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: To make matters better, Letang wasn't wearing a no-contact jersey and skated on the top power-play unit. "Kris (Letang) had a good day at practice. We'll see how he feels and go from there. Hopefully we'll get him back soon," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. Pittsburgh will play against the Islanders on Thursday. Today, 11:47 am
  • New Jersey sends Steven Santini to the minors
    Steven Santini has been assigned to AHL Albany.

    Advice: Santini spent Tuesday's contest in the press box. He's yet to play with the Devils in 2016-17, but he was briefly sent to the AHL recently to appear in a game with Albany. The question now is if this is another brief AHL stint for the sake of getting him a bit of work or if he'll stay in the minors for a prolonged period of time. Today, 7:45 am
  • Is Dennis Wideman bouncing back?
    Dennis Wideman found the back of the net in Calgary's 4-1 win against St. Louis.

    Advice: Wideman has two goals and four points in five contests this season. It's still early, but there's certainly the potential for him to bounce back after being limited to 19 points in 2015-16. Today, 7:30 am
  • Ryan Suter earns 2 points Tuesday night
    Ryan Suter notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Boston.

    Advice: He logged 26:28 of ice time in the match. Suter scored his second goal of the season during a Wild power play in the second period. The veteran defender has accounted for seven points in seven games. Today, 6:47 am
  • Patrick Eaves scores 100th career goal
    Patrick Eaves scored his 100th career goal Tuesday night.

    Advice: He scored on the power play against Winnipeg in a 3-2 Stars' win. Eaves has collected four points in five games this year. Today, 6:16 am
  • Jonathan Drouin scores in win over Toronto
    Jonathan Drouin got his second goal of the year in Tuesday's 7-3 victory over Toronto.

    Advice: Drouin scored his first marker in Tampa Bay's season opener. He didn't have a point in his previous two games after starting the year on a three-game point streak. Drouin is currently playing on a line with Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat. Today, 5:41 am
  • Nikita Kucherov racks up 4 points Tuesday
    Nikita Kucherov generated one goal and three assists in Tampa Bay's 7-3 win over Toronto on Tuesday night.

    Advice: The top line of Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and Vladislav Namestnikov exploded for 10 combined points in the victory. The goal was Kucherov's first of the season. He has seven points in six games. Today, 5:35 am
  • Mark Pysyk scores in loss to Penguins
    Mark Pysyk tallied a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Advice: It was his first point in six games with the Panthers. He spent most of the game partnered with Alex Petrovic. Today, 5:12 am
  • Thomas Vanek scores in win vs. Carolina
    Thomas Vanek potted his fourth goal of the year in Detroit's 4-2 win against Carolina on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He got the scoring started just 4:53 into the first period. Vanek is off to a great start with eight points in his first seven games as a member of the Red Wings. Today, 4:54 am
  • Tyler Ennis scores in shootout loss to Flyers
    Tyler Ennis netted his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Philadelphia.

    Advice: He opened the scoring in the second period. Ennis has registered two points in five games this season. Today, 4:45 am
  • Atkinson gives Jackets unsustainable lead
    Cam Atkinson scored the second goal of the night in a 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

    Advice: After Brandon Saad scored the first goal of the game at the 1:31 minute mark of the second, Anze Kopitar tied at 13:40. Atkinson answered at the 14:51 minute mark of the second period to give the Blue Jackets their second lead of the night and Columbus held that lead for nearly a full period. Drew Doughty scored the tying goal in the third and that is where it remained until Alec Martinez got the game winner 1:14 minutes into overtime. Yesterday, 11:23 pm
  • Bernier, Gibson give up 1 each in Sharks loss
    Jonathan Bernier and John Gibson each allowed one goal in the 2-1 overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks Tuesday night.

    Advice: Bernier did not return from the locker room at the end of the first period and Gibson was attended to on the ice in the first two minutes of the second. Gibson was fine to stay in the game and he blocked 24 of the 25 shots he faced. He was coming off two wins in which he hovered around the .900 SV% mark, so even with the loss he showed considerable improvement. Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Vlasic steals OT victory from Ducks
    Marc-Edouard Vlasic received a stolen puck from Joe Pavelski Tuesday night and scored the game winning goal in the 2-1 contest over the Anaheim Ducks at the 1:24 minute mark of overtime.

    Advice: The Ducks won the OT faceoff and kept the puck in the Sharks end for more than minute. It took only the slightest bobble for Joe Pavelski to steal the puck, pass to Vlasic and chase him down the ice. This was Vlasic’s first goal of the season and his second point. Pavelski scored his sixth assist of the season and also had the first goal of the game at the 7:58 minute mark. Yesterday, 10:09 pm
