Player Notes

    Niklas Kronwall (knee) took part in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Kronwall hasn't played this season and a timetable for his return remains unclear. 58 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Shea Weber scores GWG vs. Islanders
    Shea Weber scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Islanders.

    Advice: Weber's one-timer on the power play gave the Canadiens a 3-2 lead with just under three minutes remaining in regulation. He also picked up an assist on Phillip Danault's goal earlier in the third frame. Weber is off to a great start with his new team. The 31-year-old has picked up at least one point in four straight games and he's scored in three of his last four games. Weber has three goals and nine points in seven games this season. He's averaging 26 minutes of ice time per game so far. He's a must-start whenever the Canadiens are in action. Yesterday, 7:05 pm
  • Adam Clendening & Dylan McIlrath To Sit
    Adam Clendening will sit out for the second straight game

    Advice: Clendening missed most of last season mired in press boxes for the Penguins and Oilers after stops in Chicago and Vancouver. Young blueliner Dylan McIlrath will join him as the other scratch. The 25-year old has only dressed in one contest in 2015-16, skating for 9:14 and contributing nothing for fantasy owners - if there are any. Adjust your rosters if you must, but the likelihood of either these players making any impact in 2016-17 is minimal. Yesterday, 4:38 pm
  • Mikhail Sergachev to Sit Once Again
    Mikhail Sergachev will miss his third straight game on Wednesday when the Montreal Canadiens visit the New York Islanders

    Advice: The rookie blueliner dressed for the first three games, so this third straight scratch balances his games played to games missed ratios, but keeps him out of valuable action early in his career. He can dress in six more games before the Canadiens must make a decision on keeping him up in Montreal or returning him back to Junior. Joining the youngster in the press box is Daniel Carr. The 24-year old has dressed twice, recording one assist and firing one shot on goal. Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Jared Spurgeon (upper body) is out Thursday
    Jared Spurgeon (upper body) will not play on Thursday.

    Advice: It will be Spurgeon's fourth straight game on the sidelines. The good news is that he's resumed skating. Yesterday, 2:53 pm
  • Chris Tanev (LBI) is seen in a walking boot
    Chris Tanev (lower body) was seen in a walking boot on Wednesday.

    Advice: That's obviously not encouraging, but the Canucks described it as precautionary rather than a sign that his injury is significant. With that in mind, he remains day-to-day. Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Kris Letang (UBI) practices Wednesday
    Kris Letang (upper body) participated in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: To make matters better, Letang wasn't wearing a no-contact jersey and skated on the top power-play unit. "Kris (Letang) had a good day at practice. We'll see how he feels and go from there. Hopefully we'll get him back soon," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. Pittsburgh will play against the Islanders on Thursday. Yesterday, 11:47 am
  • Ivan Provorov gets an assist on Tuesday
    Ivan Provorov registered an assist in Philadelphia's 4-3 shootout victory over Buffalo Tuesday night.

    Advice: Provorov has four assists in seven games this season. The 19-year-old is in a three-way tie for second place among rookie blueliners in the scoring race. Yesterday, 8:00 am
  • New Jersey sends Steven Santini to the minors
    Steven Santini has been assigned to AHL Albany.

    Advice: Santini spent Tuesday's contest in the press box. He's yet to play with the Devils in 2016-17, but he was briefly sent to the AHL recently to appear in a game with Albany. The question now is if this is another brief AHL stint for the sake of getting him a bit of work or if he'll stay in the minors for a prolonged period of time. Yesterday, 7:45 am
    Not Active
  • Tom Gilbert gets his third point of 2016-17
    Tom Gilbert registered an assist in a 3-2 overtime victory Tuesday night.

    Advice: Gilbert now has three assists in four games this season. He played in 45 games with Montreal in 2015-16 and only recorded two points in that span. Yesterday, 7:40 am
  • David Savard has two points in five games
    David Savard recorded an assist in the Blue Jackets' 3-2 overtime loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday.

    Advice: Savard has no goals and two assists in five games this season. He's capable of getting 30-40 points in a season where he stays healthy. Yesterday, 7:36 am
  • Is Dennis Wideman bouncing back?
    Dennis Wideman found the back of the net in Calgary's 4-1 win against St. Louis.

    Advice: Wideman has two goals and four points in five contests this season. It's still early, but there's certainly the potential for him to bounce back after being limited to 19 points in 2015-16. Yesterday, 7:30 am
  • Stoner gets a point and fight Tuesday
    Clayton Stoner had an assist in a 2-1 overtime loss to San Jose on Tuesday.

    Advice: Stoner also received a five-minute major for fighting Micheal Haley. Stoner now has two points and five penalty minutes in five games this season. Yesterday, 7:09 am
  • Ryan Suter earns 2 points Tuesday night
    Ryan Suter notched a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Boston.

    Advice: He logged 26:28 of ice time in the match. Suter scored his second goal of the season during a Wild power play in the second period. The veteran defender has accounted for seven points in seven games. Yesterday, 6:47 am
  • Gustav Forsling may be 'questionable' for Fri
    Gustav Forsling (upper body) "could be questionable" for Chicago's next game on Friday against the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: Coach Joel Quenneville was encouraged by the rookie defenseman's progress on Tuesday after he left Monday's game because of an upper-body injury. Yesterday, 5:57 am
  • Andrej Sustr contributes 2 assists vs. Leafs
    Andrej Sustr chipped in two assists in Tampa Bay's 7-3 win in Toronto on Tuesday night.

    Advice: The towering defenseman didn't have a point in his previous five outings this season. Sustr collected a personal best 21 points in 77 games last year. Yesterday, 5:38 am
  • Mark Pysyk scores in loss to Penguins
    Mark Pysyk tallied a goal in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Advice: It was his first point in six games with the Panthers. He spent most of the game partnered with Alex Petrovic. Yesterday, 5:12 am
  • Alec Martinez gets GWG over Blue Jackets
    Alec Martinez scored the game winning goal of a 3-2 contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets Tuesday night at the 1:14 minute mark of overtime.

    Advice: With an assist from Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli, Martinez caught a tired Blue Jackets defense out of position and slapped the shot over a diving Sergei Bobrovsky. This was only Martinez’s second goal of the season, but it was the second time that he earned the game winner. He delivered the final blow against the Stars Thursday October 20th. He now has five points on the season in six games played. Tuesday, 10:21 pm
  • Vlasic steals OT victory from Ducks
    Marc-Edouard Vlasic received a stolen puck from Joe Pavelski Tuesday night and scored the game winning goal in the 2-1 contest over the Anaheim Ducks at the 1:24 minute mark of overtime.

    Advice: The Ducks won the OT faceoff and kept the puck in the Sharks end for more than minute. It took only the slightest bobble for Joe Pavelski to steal the puck, pass to Vlasic and chase him down the ice. This was Vlasic’s first goal of the season and his second point. Pavelski scored his sixth assist of the season and also had the first goal of the game at the 7:58 minute mark. Tuesday, 10:09 pm
  • Kevin Shattenkirk scores PPG in loss to CGY
    Kevin Shattenkirk scored a power play goal in St. Louis' 4-1 loss to Calgary.

    Advice: Shattenkirk's third period goal cut the Flames' lead to 3-1, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. Vladimir Tarasenko and Colton Parayko picked up the assists on Shattenkirk's second goal of the season. Tuesday, 9:34 pm
