Player Notes

  • Leddy tallies three helpers in win over Oil
    Nick Leddy picked up a trio of helpers during Sunday's 8-1 win over the Oilers.

    Advice: Quite the game for Leddy as his production has been missing from the Islanders' blue line this season. He's now up to just 20 assists and 23 points, a far cry from his 10 goals and 37 points a year ago. Today, 3:33 pm
  • Eric Gryba fought Matt Martin in 8-1 loss
    Already down 7-1 to the Islanders, Eric Gryba fought Matt Martin to kick off the third period on Sunday.

  • Matt Niskanen picks up third goal of season
    Matt Niskanen picked up his third goal of season during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Flyers.

    Advice: Aside from his 10-goal season in 2013-14, Niskanen is on pace to match his average goals per season. He's now up to 23 points in 51 games this season. Not quite what Washington is paying for, but nearly half a point a game from the blue line isn't bad either. Today, 3:00 pm
  • Del Zotto picks up fourth goal of season
    Michael Del Zotto gave the Flyers the early lead, but it wasn't enough as the Flyers fell to the Capitals 3-2 on Sunday.

    Advice: It was Del Zotto's fourth goal and 13th point of the season, a far cry from his 10 goals and 32 points registered last season. Today, 2:47 pm

  • Jared Spurgeon exits loss to Blues
    Jared Spurgeon left Saturday's game against the Blues after blocking a shot.

    Advice: It's another tough blow for the struggling Wild who will already be without Jonas Brodin for the next three to six weeks. "I don’t have an update yet, but one thing I know about Spurgeon is when he leaves a game, it’s not something small," coach Mike Yeo said. "I’m not going to sit here and say he’s going to be out long-term, but I will say that I know he was in pain." Today, 8:58 am
  • Jonas Brodin out 3-6 weeks with broken foot
    Jonas Brodin is expected to miss the next three to six weeks because of a broken foot.

The 33-year-old has two points, a plus-5 rating and 12 penalty minutes in 39 games this season. Gilbert, who's a pending UFA, could be sneaky good pick up for a contending team. Today, 7:07 am

    P.K. Subban scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

The NHLPA countered that there is "medical evidence" to "clearly demonstrate that Dennis had no intention to make contact with the linesman."

  • T.J. Brodie picks up two assists Saturday
    T.J. Brodie recorded two assists in Calgary's 4-1 win against Vancouver.
