Player Notes

  • Ryan Hartman returned to action on Friday October 21. Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Richard Panik scores again for Blackhawks
    Richard Panik scored a goal and assisted on another in a 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets on Friday.

    Advice: Panik now has five goals and seven points on the year. He is playing the best hockey of his career on a line with Jonathan Toews and Tyler Motte. Panik is currently owned in 44% of yahoo leagues and suggest adding him to your roster before someone else does. At the very least, ride him out while he's hot. His assist came on Tyler Motte's first career NHL goal during the first period. Yesterday, 6:51 pm
  • Sergei Bobrovsky brilliant for Jackets in win
    Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 33 of 35 shots in a 3-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

    Advice: Bobrvosky was simply brilliant for the Blue Jackets in this one. The Blue Jackets were outshot 24 to 11 through the final two frames and 'Bob' made several great saves to seal the win for the Jackets. The win is his first of the season. Even after this great performance, it is tough to trust him as your starting goalie in fantasy considering the team that plays in front of him. His record has now improved to 1-2-0 on the young season. Yesterday, 6:41 pm
  • Jonas Gustavsson (UBI) should be available
    Jonas Gustavsson is presumably over his upper-body injury.

    Advice: We haven't gotten confirmation of that, but Edmonton has already sent third-string goaltender Laurent Brossoit to the minors. Gustavsson has only made one appearance so far in 2016-17 and hasn't started in a game yet. Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Penguins summon David Warsofsky
    David Warsofsky has been summoned by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    Advice: Warsofsky was called up in response to Derrick Pouliot suffering a significant undisclosed injury. Warsofsky has two goals and five points in 32 career NHL games. Yesterday, 11:07 am
  • Cody Goloubef successfully clears waivers
    Cody Goloubef went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: That clears the path for the Blue Jackets to send him to AHL Cleveland. Goloubef missed the start of 2016-17 due to an oblique strain. Yesterday, 10:12 am
    Not Active
  • Nick Leddy (UBI) is out Friday
    Nick Leddy (upper body) has been ruled out for Friday's game.

    Advice: Leddy should be regarded as day-to-day beyond that. Ryan Pulock, who was summoned on an emergency basis, will play instead. Yesterday, 7:41 am
  • Jacob Josefson registers an assist Thursday
    Jacob Josefson recorded an assist in the Devils' 2-1 loss to Boston on Thursday.

    Advice: Josefson hadn't recorded a point in his first two games of the 2016-17 campaign. He set a new career-high in 2015-16 with 14 points in 58 contests. Yesterday, 7:29 am
  • Zac Dalpe scores in win over Toronto
    Zac Dalpe scored in Thursday's 3-2 win against Toronto.

    Advice: He scored his first goal of the season in the third period to tie the game at 2-2. Dalpe has contributed three points in four games for the Wild this season. Yesterday, 6:55 am
  • Patrick Wiercioch collects 2 assists Thursday
    Patrick Wiercioch had a pair of assists in Colorado's 4-0 win against Tampa Bay on Thursday night.

    Advice: Wiercioch is off to a good start with the Avalanche with one goal and three assists in four games. He recorded just five helpers in 52 games with the Ottawa Senators last season. Yesterday, 6:23 am
  • Rickard Rakell might be with Ducks next week
    Rickard Rakell might join the Anaheim Ducks next week.

    Advice: Rakell has been waiting to secure a work visa before he leaves Sweden. He's been working out and skating in the meantime, but he'll probably need to participate in some practices with the Ducks before he makes his season debut. After starting the season as a contract holdout, he inked a six-year, $22.8 million deal on Oct. 14. Yesterday, 6:23 am
  • Nazem Kadri picks up 200th NHL assist
    Nazem Kadri earned his 200th NHL assist on Thursday.

    Advice: He had a power-play helper on a goal by Auston Matthews in a 3-2 loss to Minnesota. Kadri has three points in four games this season and all of his scoring has come in his last two appearances. Yesterday, 5:57 am
  • Mike Hoffman goalless, but not panicking
    Mike Hoffman isn't discouraged by his lack of goals early in the year.

    Advice: "I'm just trying to keep a level head, I know the goals are going to come," said Hoffman, who has three assists after four contests. "You don't want to hit the panic button too early. I feel like I'm getting a lot of shots, a lot of chances every game." Hoffman has 20 shots on goal so far, so it will be only a matter of time before he gets one through. Yesterday, 5:39 am
  • Joe Morrow makes his season debut
    Joe Morrow made his season debut Thursday night.

    Advice: He logged 16:08 of ice time against New Jersey after he was a healthy scratch in the first three games of the year. Rob O'Gara sat in the press box instead in a 2-1 win over the Devils. Yesterday, 4:24 am
  • Robin Lehner allows two goals but takes loss
    Robin Lehner allowed two goals on 20 shots in a 2-1 loss to Vancouver on Thursday.

    Advice: Lehner probably wishes he had the first goal back which was a juicy rebound in the crease that Jannik Hansen poked in off the rush. He had little to no chance on the game-winner by Daniel Sedin on a cross ice pass. The 25 year-old has had some tough luck to start the season but that should be expected with this young Sabres squad. He will continue to get starts going forward and has shown the ability to give his team a chance to win on each night like he did on this one. He brings his 3:01 GAA and .92 save percentage through four games into his next start. Thursday, 11:49 pm
  • Jacob Markstrom leads Canucks to another win
    Jacob Markstrom turned aside 26-of-28 shots in the Canucks 2-1 win over Buffalo on Thursday.

    Advice: The lone goal that got past Markstrom originally got waived off and re-challenged by the Canucks when it stood as a goal through replay. So he really could have easily got the shutout in this tilt if he got a little love from the ref who let it stand. Still, The Canucks will take it as Markstrom has won both starts he's made this season. It's not clear how many more starts he will get with Ryan Miller on the shelf with "tightness." He will bring a 1.65 GAA and .932 save percentage into his next start. Thursday, 11:37 pm
  • Cam Talbot strong in win over St. Louis
    Cam Talbot turned in his most impressive start of the season, stopping 34 shots in a 3-1 Oilers win over St. Louis on Thursday.

    Advice: Talbot was named the first star of the game for good reason. He's started all five games for the Oilers who have come out of the games 4-1. Fantasy owners likely wish his 3.32 GAA and .904 save percentage were better but right now they have to be happy for the four wins after last season only yielded 21 for the Talbot. He will get the Jets on Sunday in the heritage classic. Thursday, 10:55 pm
  • Eddie Lack makes 24 saves in win over CGY
    Eddie Lack turned aside 24-of-26 shots in Carolina's 4-2 win over Calgary on Thursday night.

    Advice: It's Lack's first win in his second start of the season. After giving up a three goal lead to ultimately lose to his former team Vancouver in his first start, it's a nice bounce back. Lack has a 1-0-1 record with 3.00 GAA and .894 save percentage in two starts. He's expected to fight for the number one job this season again with Cam Ward. Thursday, 9:15 pm
  • Jeff Skinner scores and adds assist in win
    Jeff Skinner scored and added an assist in Carolina's 4-2 win over Calgary on Thursday.

    Advice: Skinner added the insurance marker for his team on the power-play late in the third period. He had four shots but was a minus-1 on the night. That's five points in four games so far for the Canes best point producer. Victor Rask and Teuvo Teravainen and Viktor Stalberg scored the other goals for the Canes. Thursday, 9:14 pm
