Player Notes

  • Roberto Luongo takes part in preseason match
    Roberto Luongo got back in the crease for Tuesday's preseason match against Nashville.

    Advice: "Felt pretty good. Timing-wise and read-wise that's not where I want to be," Luongo said. "That wasn't the purpose of tonight. It was a matter of getting back into game action and making sure everything was working still. As far as that's concerned it's a good night. ... No effects after the game so that's a real positive." He allowed two goals on 14 shots, while playing just over half of the contest. Luongo healed much faster than expected after he underwent surgery to have his torn labrum repaired on May 3. 32 minutes ago
  • Rangers cut Joseph Raaymakers from camp
    Joseph Raaymakers has been released by the New York Rangers.

    Advice: Raaymakers had been attending the Rangers' camp on a tryout basis. He had a 3.61 GAA and .891 save percentage in 28 OHL contests with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds last season. Today, 2:21 am

  • Cam Ward holds firm in preseason game
    Cam Ward kicked out all 16 shots he faced in a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay in Tuesday's preseason contest.

    Advice: Ward was in goal for 40 minutes before Daniel Altshuller took over. It was a nice way for Ward to get things underway after Carolina decided to keep him via a two-year, $6.6 million contract. He had a 2.41 GAA and .909 save percentage in 52 games last season. Today, 1:44 am
  • Chad Johnson looks good in preseason game
    Chad Johnson turned aside 21 shots in a 3-0 victory over Winnipeg on Tuesday.

    Advice: Johnson was in the net for two periods before the Flames gave goalie David Rittich some work. "It’s nice to get that intensity and focus back," Johnson said. "Summer hockey is not the same. It was still scrambly at times but it’s nice to get in the game and get that flow. It felt good at the start but it was a different feel from a regular-season game." Johnson is set to serve as Calgary's backup goaltender after inking a one-year, $1.7 million deal over the summer. Today, 1:37 am
  • Ducks cut Antoine Samuel from camp roster
    The Anaheim Ducks have removed Antoine Samuel from their training camp roster.

    Advice: Samuel had a 3.62 GAA and .887 save percentage in 24 QMJHL games last season. He was never drafted, but had joined Anaheim's camp on a tryout basis. Today, 1:26 am

  • Garteig lets three pass in Canucks loss
    Michael Garteig let three goals slip past in the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks Tuesday night.

    Advice: The British Columbia netminder hoped to bring some of the magic he employed last year with the Quinnipiac Bobcats, but did not find his rhythm. With the Bobcats, he won 32 games on 43 starts in 2015/2016 and had a save percentage of 0.924. Tuesday night, he stopped 10 shots before giving up three with a save percentage of only 0.769. Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • Armalis gives up one goal in Sharks win
    Mantas Armalis gave up one goal with teammate Troy Grosenick letting one other slip past in Tuesday night’s 3-2 victory for the San Jose Sharks over the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Armalis comes to the Sharks from Sweden where he had a 0.500 record for the Stockholm Djurgardens club in 2015/2016. He began his career with them as part of the under-16 squad in 2007/2008. Grosenick played twice for the Sharks last year, scoring one win and one loss with a save percentage of 0.948. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Ducks give up 2 in loss to Coyotes
    Matt Hackett gave up one goal on 17 shots Tuesday night in the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. Teammate Kevin Boyle turned away 18, but let one get past him into the net.

    Advice: The Ducks were playing their first preseason game against a slightly more limber Coyotes’ team who played to a split decision during a split squad meeting with the Los Angeles Kings Monday night. Boyle has 26 NHL games under his belt with four wins and 17 losses. Yesterday, 10:15 pm
  • Hill, Peters give up one in Coyotes victory
    Adin Hill perfectly defended against 16 shots and Justin Peters gave up one goal on 11 shots in the Arizona Coyotes 2-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday night. The win elevated the Coyotes to two victories with one loss in preseason contests.

    Advice: Hill’s previous action has been limited to the minors. He started 65 games for the WHL Portland Winterhawks before moving to the AHL’s Springfield Falcons for four games last year. With the Falcons, he had one win and three losses. Peters’ most recent NHL stint came with the Washington Capitals in 2014/2015 and while neither are likely to make an regular season contribution with Mike Smith and Louis Domingue tending the net, this is a great opportunity to face some stiffer competition. Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Jaroslav Halak allows three in loss to Canada
    Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Team Canada in the final of the World Cup.

    Advice: Team Europe was a heavy underdog coming into this final series, but they managed to hold their own against a much better opponent. They aren't done yet, as they'll have a chance to force a do-or-die Game 3 if they can defeat Canada in Game 2 on Thursday night. For Europe to have any chance of coming back in this series, they'll need Halak to stand on his head. The odds aren't on Team Europe's side. Yesterday, 8:27 pm
  • Carey Price makes 32 saves in win over Europe
    Carey Price stopped 32 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Team Europe in Game 1 of the World Cup Final.

    Advice: Price has been more than just solid throughout this tournament and that's a good sign after he missed most of last season with a knee injury. The 29-year-old has a perfect 4-0 record in the tournament and he's allowed more than two goals just once. Team Canada is just one win away from eliminating Team Europe in this best-of-three final series. They'll have an opportunity to hoist the World Cup with a win on Thursday night. Yesterday, 8:23 pm
  • Eric Comrie gives up three goals in loss
    Eric Comrie stopped 24 of 27 shots in Winnipeg's 3-0 loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

    Advice: Comrie is a solid prospect, but he's no higher than fourth on Winnipeg's depth chart heading into this season. The 21-year-old had a 3.12 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage in his first full pro season last year (AHL) and he'll likely need a few more years of development before becoming a full-time NHLer. Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Marc-Andre Fleury allows 3 goals in loss
    Marc-Andre Fleury allowed three goals on 19 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: He played the first two periods of the game before being replaced by Casey Desmith at the start of the third period. It's not an ideal result for a guy who's battling Matt Murray for the starting gig. Regardless of tonight's outcome, we have to remember that this is just one preseason game. Fleury has plenty of time to redeem himself for this mediocre performance. Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • Carter Hart, 5 others assigned to CHL
    Carter Hart has been sent back to Everett of the WHL by Philadelphia.

    Advice: Connor Bunnaman (Kitchener), Samuel Dove-McFalls (Saint John), Pascal Laberge (Victoriaville), Anthony Salinitri (Sarnia), Carsen Twarynski (Calgary) were also assigned to their junior clubs. The Flyers have 56 players remaining at training camp following the team's first round of cuts. Yesterday, 10:59 am

  • Jeff Glass among 14 sent to AHL by Leafs
    Jeff Glass was among Toronto's 23 roster cuts on Tuesday.

    Advice: Glass, who was attending camp on a professional tryout, will head to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL along with William Corrin, Taylor Doherty, Eric Faille, Brett Findlay, TJ Foster, Jon Jutzi, Daniel Maggio, Mason Marchment, Ryan Massa, Brenden Miller, Ty Stanton, Ethan Werek and Chase Witala. Camp for the minor-league squad begins on Monday. Yesterday, 10:19 am

  • Alex Lyon shines in preseason game
    Alex Lyon saved 28 of 29 shots in a 2-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils in Monday's preseason contest.

    Advice: "Solid performance from start to finish," Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said of Lyon. "Great demeanor and presence, and just a real steady performance all the way through." Lyon is gearing up for his first pro season after posting a 1.64 GAA and .936 save percentage in 31 games with Yale University last season. The Flyers are expected to open the season with Steve Mason and Michal Neuvirth, but both of those netminders only have a year left on their contract, so there's an opportunity for Lyon if he impresses in the minors this season. Yesterday, 3:02 am
  • Will Islanders carry three goaltenders?
    There's a chance that the New York Islanders might start the season with three goaltenders.

    Advice: Jean-Francois Berube has a one-way contract along with Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss. The latter two will obviously be part of the team as long as there's no trade. There was talk about Halak being dealt, but that didn't materialize during the summer and the Islanders might be less inclined to ship him now given his strong showing in the World Cup. Right now Halak and Greiss are both still occupied with the World Cup, so Berube is the senior goalie in the Islanders' training camp. "I have no idea what’s going to come when those guys get back. I’m trying to focus on getting as much work in as I can and use this time to get prepared for the season," Berube said. Yesterday, 2:59 am
  • Curtis McElhinney begins fight for backup gig
    Curtis McElhinney won't give up his roster spot without a fight.

    Advice: "Plain and clear, I want my job back," said McElhinney. "I don’t take kindly to what happened last season." He backed that up with a 29-save performance in Columbus' 3-2 shootout victory against Boston on Monday. McElhinney ran into injury troubles last season and left plenty to be desired when he was healthy which has left him vulnerable to Joonas Korpisalo or Anton Forsberg taking his roster spot. Yesterday, 2:22 am
  • Mike Smith stops 11 in preseason game
    Mike Smith kicked out 11 of 13 shots in a 5-3 victory over Los Angeles on Monday.

    Advice: Both of the goals Smith allowed were on redirects. He was pulled midway through the game for Louis Domingue, but that was a change that they planned prior to the contests. At the beginning of each season it seems like Smith is the story of a goaltender with potential, but also a lot to prove, which is a narrative that's not exactly encouraging when you're talking about a 34-year-old. If this is the season that Smith rekindles his 2011-12 success then Arizona could turn some heads, but that's far from a good bet. Yesterday, 2:04 am
  • Domingue, Smith stop 30 of 33 against Kings
    Louis Domingue and Mike Smith combined to stop 30 of 33 goals in the Arizona Coyotes 5-3 preseason victory over the LA Kings Monday night.

    Advice: The Coyotes had home ring advantage for this split squad affair while the other half of their teammates battled in Los Angeles. The five Coyotes goals were scored by five players with Stefan Fournier scoring the game winner in the second period. Both Yotes’ net-minders were effective with Domingue blocking 20 of 21 attempts for a save percentage of 0.952. Smith blocked 11 of 13 for an 0.846 giving them a combined average was 0.909. Last year, Domingue has a save percentage of 0.912; Smith had a 0.916, so they are picking up where they left off. Monday, 9:45 pm
