Player Notes

  • Del Zotto practices Sunday in full-contact
    Michael Del Zotto practiced without a non-contact jersey for the first time on Sunday.

    Advice: While the offensive defenseman is still considered week-to-week, this is a great sign that he's making progress. 38 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Alex Biega makes season debut vs Ducks
    Alex Biega will make his season debut against the Ducks on Sunday night.

    Advice: Biega has a 158 hits in just 58 career games, so feel free to nab him as a last-minute plug if that's what you're looking for. Today, 3:08 pm
  • Nick Leddy will play Sunday vs Minnesota
    Nick Leddy will indeed return to the Islanders' blue line Sunday against the Wild.

    Advice: The Minnesota native has two points in four games with four hits and nine blocks so far this season, so get him back in your lineup. Today, 1:05 pm
  • Holzer, Cramarossa out vs Canucks on Sunday
    Korbinian Holzer and Joseph Cramarossa will be scratched against Canucks on Sunday night.

    Advice: Holzer has averaged just under 12 minutes in his first two games of the season, picking up an assist and two hits. We'd leave him on the waiver wire though. Today, 12:46 pm
  • Ducks place Simon Despres on LTIR
    The Anaheim Ducks have placed Simon Despres (upper body) on LTIR.

    Advice: The move alleviates $3.7M of cap hit off the books, but it's also a terrible sign for Despres' health. He's believed to be dealing with a concussion, and clearly is not expected back any time soon. Today, 11:18 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Dylan McIlrath out vs Coyotes on Sunday
    Dylan McIlrath will not play against the Coyotes on Sunday night.

    Advice: This will be New York's sixth game of the season, and his fifth health scratch. Which indicates the young defender may not have much of a role with the team at this time. Today, 10:50 am
  • Sabres recall Casey Nelson
    The Buffalo Sabres have recalled Casey Nelson from the AHL.

    Advice: The 24-year-old has four points in eight career NHL games, and was a stand-out at Minnesota State Uni. at Mankato for three years. So don't be too surprised if he begins to turn heads with Buffalo. Today, 10:23 am
    Not Active
  • Clendening out vs Arizona on Sunday
    Adam Clendening will be scratched in favor of the returning Dan Girardi for Sunday's match with Arizona.

    Advice: Through five games Clendening posted an assist with a hit and two blocks while averaging 16:48 per game. Suffice it to say, he's not much of a fantasy asset. Today, 10:12 am
  • Girardi returns to Rangers blue line Sunday
    Dan Girardi will return to the Rangers' blue line for Sunday's match with Arizona.

    Advice: Girardi has an assist with three hits and blocks in two games this season. He'll be taking Adam Clendening's spot as well. With such a short ledger today, might as well play the veteran if you have him. Today, 10:10 am
  • Stuart and Thoburn scratched for Classic
    Mark Stuart and Chris Thorburn will be healthy scratches for Sunday's Heritage Classic against the Oilers.

    Advice: Neither veteran will play in the outdoor game. Today, 10:04 am
  • Spurgeon won't play Sunday v Islanders
    Jared Spurgeon will not play Sunday against the Islanders.

    Advice: He remains out due to an upper-body injury. Consider Spurgeon day-to-day for the time being. Today, 9:43 am
  • Philip Larsen picks up two assists Saturday
    Philip Larsen picked up his first two points of the season Saturday.

    Advice: Larsen had a pair of power play assists but was also a minus-two on the evening. The defenseman has been the quarterback on the first power play and it looked like it finally began to click on Saturday. He is worth taking because of his offensive capabilities as he had 11 goals and 36 points in 52 KHL games with Jokerit last season. Today, 7:37 am
  • Ceci has had a rough start
    Cody Ceci has had a rough start to his 2016-17 season.

    Advice: In five games to date, Ceci has registered a mere assist and has posted a minus three rating. He also took a terrible penalty Saturday night that resulted in a Tampa goal which had a large impact on the outcome of the game--a 4-1 loss. Ceci, has a load of talent, and many were thinking that after a few seasons in the NHL this campaign would be his breakout year. So far, that does not seem to be happening. Today, 7:25 am
  • Brent Burns point streak ends in Detroit
    Brent Burns did not pick up a point Saturday and saw his five game point streak end.

    Advice: The blueliner got off to an amazing start with three goals and nine points in the Sharks first five contests but that ended in Detroit as Jimmy Howard turned aside all 30 Shark shots. Burns is a must-own and is coming off a 27 goal, 75 point effort last season and then proceeded to get 24 points in 24 playoff games. Needless to say, he is a must-start. Today, 7:16 am
  • Kris Letang sits out second straight game
    Kris Letang missed his second straight game on Saturday with an upper body injury.

    Advice: While the injury is not expected to keep the ultra-talented blueliner out for long, the Penguins struggled on Saturday without him as they dropped a 5-1 decision to a flu-ridden Nashville team. Letang has two assists in four games but his production will go up upon his return. Today, 6:59 am
  • Ivan Provorov has big game for Flyers
    Ivan Provorov had a couple of assists for the Flyers Saturday.

    Advice: The rookie blueliner had a tough go of it against Chicago Tuesday as he was a minus-five, but he was a plus-two as well and now has three assists in five games with a minus-three rating. The 19-year-old has a boatload of talent and should be a fixture on the Flyers blueline for the next 10-15 years. Grab him if you can right now. He skated with Brandon Manning on the point Saturday for the first time Saturday so that could be the Flyers new pairing. Today, 6:39 am
  • Brayden McNabb gets second of the season
    Brayden McNabb scored his second of the season Saturday.

    Advice: McNabb has already tied his career high in goals, as he had two last season and in the previous season. McNabb is known for his penchant for getting penalties and this season has been no different as he has 11 over the last two games. Look for 25 points this season with 100 penalty minutes and get him if that will help you. Today, 5:02 am
  • Ryan Murphy still out of action
    Ryan Murphy (lower body) is still out of action.

    Advice: Murphy was projected to miss three-to-four weeks when he was injured before the start of the NHL season but he has had a setback so it looks like early-November at the earliest for the defenseman. Murphy had 10 assists in 35 games last season for the Hurricanes so don't expect a lot this season. Today, 4:08 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Marco Scandella returns from one game illness
    Marco Scandella (illness) returned to action on Saturday.

    Advice: Scandella was a late scratch Thursday due to the illness and play 15:23 upon his return to the lineup Saturday. He was a minus-one with nary a point. He has no points with a minus-four rating in four games with the Wild this season. Yesterday, 11:14 pm
  • Carl Gunnarsson back after two game absence
    Carl Gunnarsson (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

    Advice: Gunnarsson missed a couple of games with the injury. Gunnarsson had no stats while playing only a couple of ticks under 10 minutes Saturday. Yesterday, 11:14 pm
