Player Notes

  • Halak, Team Europe eliminted by Team Canada
    Jaroslav Halak allowed two goals on 34 shots in Team Europe's 2-1 loss to Team Canada on Thursday.

    Advice: Halak and Team Europe put up a great fight, but they failed to force a winner take all Game 3 on Saturday night. Europe got a goal from Zdeno Chara in the first period and led until Patrice Bergeron tied it with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. Bruins forward Brad Marchand scored the game-winning goal (shorthanded) with 43 seconds remaining. 26 minutes ago
  • Carey Price helps Canada win World Cup
    Carey Price turned aside 32 of 33 shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over Team Europe.

    Advice: The win allowed Canada to clinch the World Cup. Team Canada was outplayed throughout the evening and they gave up a lot of odd man rushes, but Price bailed them out on numerous occasions. Price has now won 16 consecutive games as Team Canada's starting goaltender. The Canadiens goalie showed that the knee injury he suffered last season is behind him. He looks ready to go for the 2016-17 season. He should be one of the top two goaltenders taken in standard fantasy leagues. 28 minutes ago
  • James Reimer stops 18 of 19 shots
    James Reimer stopped 18 of 19 shots in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Advice: Reimer played two periods, while Reto Berra was between the pipes for one period. It's a solid outing from Florida's number 2 goaltender. Reimer's fantasy upside is limited because of the presence of Roberto Luongo. His fantasy value would spike if Luongo would be forced to miss time. Today, 7:18 pm
  • Capitals release Jay Williams
    Jay Williams has been cut from the Washington Capitals' training camp roster.

    Advice: Williams had joined the Capitals after agreeing to a PTO. He posted a 2.58 GAA and .903 save percentage in 22 contests with Miami University (Ohio) last season. Today, 3:49 pm
  • Michael Houser's PTO with CBJ ends
    Michael Houser has been released by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    Advice: Houser attended Columbus' training camp on a tryout basis after the Florida Panthers decided not to make him a qualifying offer over the summer. Houser had a 2.68 GAA and .912 save percentage in 16 ECHL games in 2015-16. Today, 3:11 pm
  • Jimmy Howard will get the nod on Thursday
    Jimmy Howard will play between the pipes in Thursday's preseason game against Boston.

    Advice: The plan is to use Howard for the full 60 minutes. Howard is competing for the No. 1 goalie gig with Petr Mrazek. Today, 2:55 pm
  • Connor Hellebuyck will start on Thursday
    Connor Hellebuyck will get the nod in Thursday's preseason game against Minnesota.

    Advice: Michael Hutchinson will be the other goalie for the Jets. Hellebuyck had a 2.34 GAA and .918 save percentage in 26 games with Winnipeg last season. Today, 12:50 pm
  • Anthony Stolarz heads to the minors
    Anthony Stolarz has been reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Stolarz posted a 2.60 GAA and .916 save percentage in 47 AHL contests in 2015-16. His remove from the training camp roster was expected, but if Steve Mason or Michal Neuvirth suffer an injury during the campaign then Stolarz might be back with Philadelphia. Today, 12:22 pm
  • Mike Condon will get the nod on Thursday
    Mike Condon will play between the pipes in Thursday`s preseason game against Ottawa.

    Advice: Condon had a 2.71 GAA and .903 save percentage in 55 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season. Despite that workload, with Carey Price is healthy and Al Montoya inked to a one-year, one-way deal, Condon is a longshot to make the team's opening game roster. Today, 11:34 am
  • Nick Ellis will report to AHL Bakersfield
    Nick Ellis has been reassigned to the AHL's Bakersfield Condors.

    Advice: Ellis had a 1.80 GAA and .936 save percentage in 36 games with Providence College last season. He inked a two-year, entry-level contract with Edmonton back in April. Today, 11:20 am
  • Jonathan Quick will play in the preseason
    Jonathan Quick is back with the Los Angeles Kings following the United States' exit from the World Cup.

    Advice: Quick was in net for two of the States' three tournament losses. He posted a 3.56 GAA and .863 save percentage. Although the World Cup gave him an opportunity to warmup before the regular season, Quick still intends to participate in one or more preseason game. "I want to play," he said. "We’ve got a schedule in place." Today, 7:42 am
  • Mason McDonald heads to AHL Stockton
    The Calgary Flames have sent Mason McDonald to AHL Stockton.

    Advice: McDonald posted a 3.33 GAA and .902 save percentage in 39 QMJHL games in 2015-16. At the age of 20, he was never expected to make the Flames' opening game roster, but his hope is that he can show that he's ready to play for Stockton. Today, 7:04 am

  • F. Andersen may be able to play this weekend
    Frederik Andersen (upper body) could be back in the crease as early as Sunday's exhibition against Montreal.

    Advice: He didn't offer a timetable for his return, but he was on the ice for Wednesday's practice. "It's progressing pretty good ... I'm still day to day, but it's been going pretty good," said Andersen. Today, 5:43 am
  • Sam Brittain wants to keep developing
    Sam Brittain will have to battle for his playing time this season.

    Advice: "I'm looking to play as much as I can this year, develop and keep working on the areas I need to make the jump to the big club," said Brittain after posting a preseason win over Nashville. The Panthers added goaltenders Reto Berra and James Reimer during the summer. Berra will probably start the season in the minors, so Brittain will have to compete with him for playing time. Today, 5:19 am
  • Budaj perfect, McCollum nearly so for Kings
    Peter Budaj turned away 14 of 14 goals for the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night. Tom McCullom gave up one goal on 13 shots en route to a 6-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: It helps when the puck spends most of the night at the other end of the rink. The Kings outshot the Ducks 48-27 in the preseason rout and gave up the single point well into the third period when it no longer mattered. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Tokarski, Danis each give up three
    Dustin Tokarski and Yann Danis gave up three goals apiece in Wednesday night’s 6-1 loss of the Anaheim Ducks to the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: The losing goalies had a busy night. Tokarski fended off 25 shots with Danis turning away 17. Neither netminder was able to crack the 900 mark in save percentage, but Tokarski came closest with a 0.893. At that, he was slightly more productive than last year with the Montreal Canadiens where he netted only a 0.878. Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Gustavsson gives up three in Oilers loss
    The Edmonton Oilers’ Jonas Gustavsson gave up three of five goals in Wednesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Gustavsson’s 24 games with the Boston Bruins last year showed a lot more promise. He won 11 and had a save percentage of 0.908. Wednesday night, he could save only 0.824 percent of the shots. The netminding duties were shared with Nick Ellis, who gave up one goal. Yesterday, 10:12 pm

    Advice: Miller gave up two of the three goals Wednesday night while stopping 15 for a save percentage of 0.882. Demko gave up one goal on nine shots for a 0.889 percentage. Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Desrosiers give up two in Stars loss to Avs
    Philippe Desrosiers gave up two of four goals in the Dallas Stars 4-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night.

    Advice: Desrosiers spent last year with the ECHL Idaho Steelheads and AHL Texas Stars. He won five games with the minor league affiliate Stars and lost five. One other goal was scored against Antti Niemi and the final point wound up in an empty net. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Pickard stopped 22 in Avs win over Stars
    Calvin Pickard stopped 22 shots and let a pair get by in the Colorado Avalanche’s 4-2 victory Wednesday night over the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: Pickard won seven games with the Avalanche last year, boasting a 0.922 save percentage. He is playing largely in a backup role behind Semyon Varlamov, but looks to be a solid second choice. Yesterday, 9:09 pm
