    Advice: Vasilevskiy was part of Team Russia's roster for the World Cup, but he didn't end up playing for them at all. He'll enter this season as Ben Bishop's backup, but he's promising enough to potentially challenge Bishop for playing time. 32 minutes ago

  • Radko Gudas (wrist) cleared to shoot puck
    Radko Gudas (wrist) is getting close to 100%.

    Advice: At this point Gudas is able to shoot the puck, but he hasn't gotten into a preseason game yet. "I can’t say it’s really 100 percent, but it’s getting there soon," Gudas said. "There’s a lot of time for me to get in top, game-like shape." He's confident he'll be fine for the start of the regular season. Today, 8:40 am
  • Nick Schultz has a minor MCL sprain
    Nick Schultz's lower-body injury is a minor MCL sprain.

    Advice: This is just an FYI as Schultz is only expected to miss four-to-seven days anyways. In other words, this shouldn't impact his ability to play in the season opener. Today, 8:38 am
  • Cal Clutterbuck (LBI) returns to practice
    Cal Clutterbuck (lower body) rejoined the Islanders' for Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It was Clutterbuck's first time on the ice since Saturday. He skated on a line with Casey Cizikas and Nikolay Kulemin. Today, 8:36 am
  • Pirri has 3 goals in last 2 preseason games
    Brandon Pirri has three goals in his last two preseason games.

    Advice: Pirri also registered an assist during Thursday's contest. He's in a fight to earn a third-line spot with the Rangers and his strong performance over his last couple of contests certainly makes things more interesting.

  • Miles Wood gets third star Thursday night
    Miles Wood was the third star of Thursday's preseason game despite being given limited playing time.

    Advice: Wood only logged 8:35 minutes, but as previously mentioned he also scored the Devils' lone goal in the 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers. What makes this all particularly good for Wood is the fact that he was playing for the second consecutive day. That wasn't the original plan, but he was a late addition to the game roster because Devante Smith-Pelly (upper body) was unavailable. Wood felt it was actually easier on him this way because he didn't have to spend much time dwelling on the fact that he would play before the game actually started. Today, 8:07 am
  • Drake Caggiula might make Oilers as center
    Drake Caggiula might end up earning a roster spot with the Edmonton Oilers as a center.

    Advice: Caggiula spent most of his time with the University of North Dakota serving as a left winger, but he grew up playing center and so far it looks like he might serve in that role with the Oilers. Having Caggiula play up the middle would give the Edmonton Oilers the ability to shift Leon Draisaitl from the third-line center spot to the second-line right wing, so if Caggiula can prove that he's NHL ready then it will have some positive ripple effects with Edmonton. Caggiula made a good impression on Wednesday when he scored twice in a preseason game. Today, 7:46 am
  • Zach Werenski gets assist in preseason game
    Zach Werenski registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime victory against Nashville on Thursday.

    Advice: Werenski was making his NHL preseason debut and was given a team-high 23:41 minutes of ice time. In addition to the assist, he finished the game with a plus-three rating. "You can just tell he’s going to be a hell of a player," teammate Brandon Dubinsky said. "The poise with the puck. His ability to see the ice and to naturally jump up in the play, to make plays. I’m really excited. He’s a hell of a player. He’s going to help us a lot this year." Today, 7:32 am
  • Blues send down Ville Husso, 3 others
    Ville Husso has been assigned to the AHL by St. Louis.

    Advice: The Blues also sent forwards Jacob Doty, Mackenzie MacEachern and Justin Selman to the Chicago Wolves. Husso was excellent in Finland for HIFK last season, where he posted a .927 save percentage and a 1.91 goals-against average in 39 outings. Today, 7:05 am

  • Zbynek Michalek returns to the Coyotes
    Zbynek Michalek is back with the Arizona Coyotes after playing with the Czech Republic in the World Cup.

    Advice: Between exhibition games and the tournament itself, Michalek got into six games thanks to the World Cup. With that in mind, the Coyotes plan to at least keep him out of Friday and Saturday's preseason contests in an effort to manage his workload. He had two goals and seven points in 70 games last season. Today, 6:59 am
  • Jordan Schmaltz in the mix for spot on Blues
    Jordan Schmaltz is battling for a roster spot with the Blues at training camp.

    Advice: He is competing with Robert Bortuzzo, Petteri Lindbohm and Chris Butler. "It's interesting," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "Nobody's emerged yet. Schmaltz is in the picture now. We've got a lot of guys who are good players. Nobody's emerged either good or bad. They're there, they're knocking at the door, that's why we're going to really give these guys the exposure to make an impression." They will all play on Friday night versus Dallas. Today, 6:58 am
  • Jonathan Toews helps Canada claim World Cup
    Jonathan Toews set up Brad Marchand's World Cup winning goal with just 43.1 seconds left in regulation.

    Advice: Toews led a shorthanded rush late in the contest and dropped the puck for Marchand, who wired the game winner to give Canada the championship title. "It was just one play or bounce or whatever you want to call it, the serendipitous moment we were looking for," Toews said. "We just needed to find a way to break through and finally we did. We were pushing for a long time. They were doing everything they could to frustrate us." Today, 6:10 am
  • Mark Borowiecki has rough preseason outing
    Mark Borowiecki didn't look good against Montreal in preseason action on Thursday night.

    Advice: He was guilty of giving away the puck plenty of times and he got beat wide on the Canadiens' first goal. Borowiecki also briefly left the game, favoring his shoulder, after he was checked into the boards by Greg Pateryn. It's unclear if that will cost him any time, but he appears to be fine for now. Today, 5:12 am
  • Jakub Zboril has made progress from last year
    Jakub Zboril has looked much better at this year's training camp.

    Advice: "He's made big strides," said assistant coach Jay Pandolfo. "I just think it's the structure in his game, his overall attitude. He was young last year. He's in better shape. He's done a lot of things we kind of got on him for last year and he's taken it and listened and done a good job." He has been paired with Kevan Miller at camp, but he isn't expected to be on the team when the regular season begins. Today, 4:27 am
