    Advice: Lucic has two goals and four points in five games this season. He finished 2015-16 with 55 points, but regular minutes with Connor McDavid could lead to him finishing above that mark in 2016-17. Today, 7:08 am
  • Antoine Roussel gets 18 PIMs Thursday
    Antoine Roussel racked up 18 minutes in penalties Thursday night against Los Angeles.

    Advice: He was assesed four minutes for roughing, two minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct and a 10-minute misconduct following a dust-up with Kings defenseman Brayden McNabb, who injured Patrick Sharp with a hard hit beforehand.

  • Clarke MacArthur may join Sens for road trip
    Clarke MacArthur (concussion) is likely to join his teammates Sunday for the start of a three-game road trip.

    Advice: "Obviously, he's not going to play," coach Guy Boucher said. "We're talking about being with the guys, being part of the routine. It would be good for him mentally, but we still haven't 100 percent decided that." He is doing better but it remains uncertain when MacArthur will be ready to return to action. Today, 5:44 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Mike Hoffman goalless, but not panicking
    Mike Hoffman isn't discouraged by his lack of goals early in the year.

    Advice: "I'm just trying to keep a level head, I know the goals are going to come," said Hoffman, who has three assists after four contests. "You don't want to hit the panic button too early. I feel like I'm getting a lot of shots, a lot of chances every game." Hoffman has 20 shots on goal so far, so it will be only a matter of time before he gets one through. Today, 5:39 am
  • Paul Byron records two helpers Thursday
    Paul Byron had two helpers in Thursday's 5-2 win versus Arizona on Thursday.

    Danton Heinen skated alongside David Backes and David Krejci on Thursday night versus New Jersey.

    Advice: He saw a season-high 17:33 of ice time and posted one shot in a 2-1 victory over the Devils. Heinen is still searching for his first NHL point after four appearances. "I think it's tougher to get chances in this league," said Heinen. "I've got to look to use my shot a little more, I think, but everyone has a better stick out there. I think I've got to get to the [scoring] areas more and I feel like our line had too much [offensive] zone time. But I've got to find ways to get open." Today, 4:28 am
  • Johnny Gaudreau scores first goal in loss
    Johnny Gaudreau scored his first of the season in a 4-2 loss to Carolina on Thursday.

    Advice: Gaudreau's goal in the third period made it a one goal lead to make it 3-2 but that was as close as the Flames would get. He added five shots and a blocked shot in the loss. The 23 year-old star has three points in the first five games of the season. Troy Brouwer continued his hot start with his third of the season in the losing cause. Yesterday, 9:34 pm

  • Tanner Pearson scores goal, assist in OT win
    Tanner Pearson scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Dallas Stars.

    Advice: Pearson was suspended for the first two games of the regular season, but he's put together back-to-back multi-point efforts in his first two contests. He picked up the primary assist on Jeff Carter's second period goal and his goal gave the Kings a 3-2 lead heading into the third period. Pearson finished the game with a plus-3 rating and three shots on goal in 16:07 of ice time. The 24-year-old has three goals and one assist in two games. Alec Martinez scored the game-winner in overtime. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Crouse, Connauton out vs Montreal on Thursday
    Lawson Crouse and Kevin Connauton will be scratched from Thursday's match with Montreal.

    Advice: Neither player has contributed much to the Coyotes thus far. Crouse has no points and just over eight minutes of action per night in two games, while Connauton hasn't put up even that much. Yesterday, 4:04 pm
  • Chris Kreider extends point streak to 4 games
    Chris Kreider is on a season-opening four-game point streak.

  • Tom Pyatt re-adjusts fast in NHL return
    Tom Pyatt has re-adjusted quickly to the NHL after spending the last two seasons in Switzerland.

    Advice: "It's a tighter game (in the NHL), you've got to make quicker decisions," Pyatt said. "It was good for me to get a lot of preseason action. I don't know if I can keep up that (scoring) pace, but when you get the offense going early on, it makes you feel good." Pyatt is off to a strong start with two goals and one assist in four games this year. Knowing coach Guy Boucher has made the transition easier. Boucher coached him in Tampa Bay and with Hamilton of the AHL. Yesterday, 5:17 am
