Player Notes

  • Tyson Barrie blasts his first goal in loss
    Tyson Barrie got his first goal of the season on a two-man advantage in Colorado's 4-3 loss to the Panthers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was nice to see Barrie get on the board as many projected the talented d-man to take the next step to stardom this season. Barrie has three points in seven games so for a Colorado Avalanche team that has struggled offensively. Look for the point totals to go up for Barrie when Colorado snaps out of this early season funk. Gabriel Landeskog and Alex Tanguay also had goals in the loss.

  • Dennis Wideman scores in Flames' OT loss
    Dennis Wideman scored the lone goal for the Flames in a 2-1 OT loss to the Lightning on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Wideman opened the scoring for both teams on an early power-play for the Flames in this contest. The veteran d-man potted a one-timer opportunity set up by the whiz kid rookie Johnny Gaudreau. Kris Russell also picked up a helper on what would be the lone goal of the night for Calgary.
    Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Keith Yandle picks up 2 points in loss to NAS
    Arizona defenseman Keith Yandle continued his torrid pace Tuesday by recording a goal and an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Predators.

    Advice: Yandle is one of the league's most consistent offensive commodities on the blue line and he has been rewarding his owners with seven points in six contests this year. Martin Erat and Rob Klinkhammer also counted for the Coyotes in the losing effort.
    Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Ryan Ellis carries Preds to shootout win
    Ryan Ellis scored a goal and added a pair of assists for the Predators in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win against Arizona.

    Advice: The offensive-minded blueliner certainly possesses a boat load of untapped potential, but the bevy of talented rearguards on the Nashville roster limits his upside. James Neal and Mike Ribeiro also netted goals for the Preds in the winning effort.
    Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Adam Larsson's set to make his season debut
    Adam Larsson will make his season debut Tuesday night.

    Advice: Larsson spent the Devils' first five contests in the press box. He's got a lot of potential, but he's struggled to establish himself in the NHL and until he does, it's hard to recommend him in standard leagues.
    Yesterday, 3:51 pm
  • Ryan Murphy projected to serve as a forward
    Ryan Murphy will serve as a forward on Tuesday.

    Advice: Murphy is playing on the fourth line though, so he isn't expected to do much offensively. He does have the potential to develop into an offensive defenseman, but the Hurricanes have plenty of veteran alternatives to fill that role.
    Yesterday, 3:12 pm
  • John Erskine (undisclosed) is day-to-day
    John Erskine sustained an undisclosed injury during Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Erskine hasn't played yet this season and has no fantasy value in standard leagues when he's healthy. He's day-to-day for now.
    Yesterday, 2:17 pm
  • Kings back NHL's suspension of Slava Voynov
    The Los Angeles Kings are standing behind the NHL's decision to suspend Slava Voynov indefinitely.

    Advice: The NHL acted after Voynov was arrested following an alleged incident of domestic violence that sent an adult woman to the hospital. While the Kings believe the NHL is acting correctly, they do have questions about what this means for their franchise. More specifically, they aren't sure how this will be handled from a salary cap and roster space perspective. The Kings have looked through the CBA and don't feel it addressed their questions, but they will speak to the league Wednesday.

  • Braydon Coburn might be back on Tuesday
    Braydon Coburn (lower body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

    Advice: Coburn has missed four straight games due to the ailment. He had 17 points and 63 penalty minutes in 82 contests in 2013-14.
    Yesterday, 10:34 am
  • Ryan Stanton (LBI) doesn't travel with team
    Ryan Stanton (lower body) didn't travel with the Canucks to Dallas for Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Stanton has been placed on the injured reserve list. He has no points and a neutral plus/minus rating in three games this season.

    Injured Reserve
  • Radko Gudas should return during road trip
    Radko Gudas (lower body) didn't skate Monday and he sat out his third consecutive game.

    Advice: He was able to ride the stationary bike, but isn't expected to play Tuesday night in Calgary either. Coach Jon Cooper expects Gudas to play at some point during Tampa Bay's road trip.
    Yesterday, 7:31 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Derrick Pouliot heads to the minors
    Derrick Pouliot has been sent to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    Advice: Pouliot had been recovering from a shoulder surgery he underwent in May. He's got the potential to be a great offensive defenseman and it wouldn't surprise us if he makes his NHL debut before the season's over.

  • Marc Methot skates briefly on Monday
    Marc Methot (back) skated a little before practice on Monday.

    Advice: "He had some public skating ... just a touch," said coach Paul MacLean. "That's improvement. How close he is to practicing is still to be determined, but he did go for a skate." Methot has been dealing with a back/hip injury since the start of camp and he wasn't able to play in any preseason games as a result. His return to the lineup is still a long way away.
    Yesterday, 7:06 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Travis Hamonic exits Monday's practice early
    Travis Hamonic wasn't able to complete Monday's practice.

    Advice: Hamonic seems to have sustained an undisclosed injury, but it's not known if it's serious enough to keep him out of the lineup. The Islanders will play against Toronto on Tuesday.
    Yesterday, 7:04 am
  • Justin Schultz finds back of the net Monday
    Justin Schultz scored his first goal of the season on Monday.

    Advice: Schultz has two points and a minus-five rating in six games. He should get better as the season goes on, although we wouldn't expect too much more than 30 points from him.
    Yesterday, 5:59 am
  • Bryan Allen (LBI) takes part in practice
    Bryan Allen (lower body) was able to practice with the Ducks on Monday.

    Advice: Allen hasn't made his season debut yet. He's obviously making progress, but might end up missing more playing time as he tries to avoid a setback.
