Player Notes

  • Penguins bring up Oskar Sundqvist
    Oskar Sundqvist has been summoned from the minors.

    Advice: The Penguins also moved Olli Maatta to the minors, but these moves were made to help the team stay cap compliant. It's unlikely that Sundqvist will be on the roster for opening night, but the Penguins may decide to bring up another forward. 29 minutes ago

  • Devils return Pavel Zacha to his OHL club
    New Jersey has returned Pavel Zacha to Sarnia of the OHL.

    Advice: Zacha was the sixth overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft and may have added some offensive punch to the Devils, but he's also just 18 years of age and won't be rushed into the NHL. 39 minutes ago
  • Grigorenko will start as Avs' 13th forward
    Mikhail Grigorenko will begin the season as Colorado's 13th forward, according to coach Patrick Roy.

    Advice: The 12th overall pick of the 2012 draft was hoping for a larger opportunity with the Avalanche, but he will have to wait to make his debut. Still, Griogrenko could be someone to keep an eye when he gets his chance. Today, 12:20 pm
  • New Jersey acquires AHL MVP Brian O'Neill
    Brian O'Neill has been shipped to New Jersey for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

    Advice: The pick is reportedly conditional on him re-signing. O'Neill was the AHL's Les Cunningham Award winner last season, which goes to the league's most valuable player. He registered 22 goals and 80 points in 71 games with Manchester last year. Today, 11:00 am
  • Avalanche put Jesse Winchester on IR
    Jesse Winchester (concussion) has been placed on injured reserve.

    Advice: He didn't play any games with Colorado in 2014-15 because of a concussion issue and he started experiencing symptoms again during training camp. It's uncertain when he will be able to return. Today, 10:56 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Montreal takes Paul Byron off waivers

    Advice: He recorded six goals and 19 points in 57 games with the Flames last season. Today, 9:56 am
  • Tyler Graovac makes Wild roster out of camp
    Following Minnesota's latest roster moves, Tyler Graovac will start the season in the NHL.

    Advice: He has slated to begin the year on the third line between Thomas Vanek and Charlie Coyle. Graovac appeared in three games with Minnesota last season, but he'll have a larger role with the team this time around. Today, 9:25 am
  • Wild place Jordan Schroeder on waivers
    Jordan Schroeder has been placed on waivers.

    Advice: He battled some injury issues during training camp, but he was also outperformed by Tyler Graovac for a roster spot. Today, 8:24 am
  • Connor Brickley earns NHL roster spot
    Connor Brickley has made the opening-day roster of the Florida Panthers.

    Advice: "Brickley had a great camp, was basically our last cut," GM Dale Tallon said. "[Brickley] earned a job. It started in rookie camp, continued on. He's been terrific every day. He didn't just have one day." The Panthers open the regular season on Saturday against Philadelphia and that could be Brickley's NHL debut. Today, 7:28 am
  • Quinton Howden will start in the NHL
    Quinton Howden will start the upcoming season with Florida.

    Advice: Howden didn't see any NHL action last year after playing a total of 34 games over the previous two campaigns. He was limited to just 33 AHL games in 2014-15 and he collected 18 points. Today, 7:22 am
  • Cody McCormick set to start on IR
    Cody McCormick, who has been dealing with blood clots since January, is expected to start the year on injured reserve.

    Advice: He is already listed on the IR on the team's website. McCormick wasn't able to pass his physical when training camp opened and there haven't been many updates on his status ever since. It's unclear when he'll be able to return. Today, 7:08 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Tim McGauley signs entry-level deal with Caps
    Tim McGauley has inked a three-year, entry-level contract with Washington.

  • Nic Petan makes Jets out of training camp
    Nic Petan will start the 2015-16 season with the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: He's projected to start on the fourth line, but that doesn't bother him. "I think right now I'm happy with what I've got," said the 20-year-old forward. "I think I could get a little bit of power-play time, so that helps out with some touches on the ice. I'm excited to get that game going." His NHL debut could come Thursday night against Boston. Today, 6:30 am
  • Kyle Palmieri resumes practicing
    Kyle Palmieri (undisclosed) took part in Monday's practice.

    Advice: Palmieri made his return after being hurt in a preseason game on Wednesday. His ailment was initially described as a "minor tweak" and it wouldn't be surprising to see him participate in the Devils' opener on Oct. 9. Today, 6:15 am
  • Sean Monahan aims to improve on the draw
    Among other things, Sean Monahan is looking to improve on the draw this season.

    Advice: That's been an area of weakness for Monahan thus far as he had a 46% success rate as a rookie and won just 49.3% of his draws in 2014-15. If he can build on that though, he'll at least leave the territory of being a liability on the draw. Calgary was among the worst teams when it came to faceoffs last season, so having Monahan take a step up in that regard would help the team fill a significant hole. Today, 6:00 am
  • Sharks name Joe Pavelski as new captain
    Joe Pavelski has been named captain of the San Jose Sharks.

    Advice: Joe Thornton and Logan Couture will serve as alternates. Pavelski led the Sharks in scoring last season with 37 goals and 70 points in 82 games. Yesterday, 1:07 pm
  • Lightning waive Marchessault, Angelidis
    Jonathan Marchessault and Mike Angelidis have been waived by Tampa Bay.

    Advice: Neither of them has much NHL experience, but they could stay up with the team if Tampa's injured players aren't cleared before Thursday's opener. Yesterday, 10:50 am
  • Eichel could mesh well with Kane or Moulson
    Jack Eichel skated with a few different players at training camp.

    Advice: He may start the regular season between Brian Gionta and Evander Kane. "I like to pass it and he likes to shoot," Eichel said of Kane. "Hopefully, we can work something out. It's been good playing with him so far, and I think it'll continue to get better." Eichel could also see time alongside roommate Matt Moulson this year. Yesterday, 7:22 am
  • Wayne Gretzky believes in Connor McDavid
    Wayne Gretzky has faith in Connor McDavid going into his rookie season.

    Advice: "He'll be up against men now," Gretzky said. "Everybody he'll be going up against will be a good player. Travel is different. Lifestyle is different. But I anticipate and expect him to make a real smooth transition. I expect him to get off to a really nice start and have a great career." The hype surrounding McDavid couldn't be much higher, but soon we'll have some regular season performances to weigh against it. Of course regardless of whether McDavid has a good or bad start, the small sample size will make it difficult to initially read much into his numbers, but at least we'll be moving towards something more concrete. Yesterday, 4:33 am
  • Though cut, ylan Strome had 'terrific' camp
    While Dylan Strome didn't make the Coyotes' opening game roster, he did manage to make a good impression.

    Advice: "Dylan had a terrific training camp," Coyotes GM Don Maloney said. "However, he is still a very young man who will be able to mature away from the NHL spotlight. He has all the ingredients we like in a player – intelligent, competitive and skilled. He simply needs more time to work on his strength and quickness. He will be an important player for us in the future." Strome was always something of a long shot to make the team out of training camp, so this shouldn't be seen as a setback for him. He'll get a chance to lead the OHL's Erie Otters this season without the presence of Connor McDavid and will likely enter next year's camp with a far better shot of securing a roster spot. Yesterday, 4:19 am
