Player Notes

  • Valtteri Filppula is dealing with the flu
    Valtteri Filppula is battling the flu.

    Advice: That puts Filppula's availability for Friday's game into question. He has seven goals and 26 points in 53 contests in 2015-16. 16 minutes ago
  • Patrik Elias (knee) skates lightly Thursday
    Patrik Elias (knee) engaged in some light skating on Thursday.

    Advice: It was Elias' first time on the ice since December. He's been limited to 13 games this season due to knee problems. 19 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Kris Versteeg (illness) skates on Thursday
    Kris Versteeg (illness) was back on the ice Thursday.

    Advice: That will probably lead to Versteeg playing on Friday, but nothing is set in stone yet. He has 10 goals and 31 points in 53 contests in 2015-16. 35 minutes ago
  • Montreal takes Paul Byron (LBI) on road trip
    Paul Byron (lower body) will join the Canadiens' on their upcoming three game road trip.

    Advice: Montreal is scheduled to play on Friday, Monday, and Wednesday before returning home. Byron has been out of action for three straight games. It's not clear if Byron will return during this trip, but it's at least a good sign that he's going with the team. 37 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Lucas Lessio (LBI) will travel with Montreal
    Lucas Lessio (lower body) will accompany the Montreal Canadiens on their upcoming road trip.

    Advice: Montreal will play in Buffalo on Friday, Arizona on Monday, and Colorado on Wednesday. Lessio hasn't played since Feb. 2 and was originally projected to miss two-to-three weeks. 39 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Mike Cammalleri is likely out this weekend
    Don't expect Mike Cammalleri (hand) to return this weekend.

    Advice: The Devils are set to play against Philadelphia on Saturday and Los Angeles on Sunday. Cammalleri has already missed five straight games due to the injury. 41 minutes ago
    Injured Reserve
  • Artemi Panarin misses Thursday's practice
    Artemi Panarin (illness) isn't participating in Thursday's morning skate.

    Advice: Panarin missed Tuesday's contest due to the disease. Given that he's not skating, we're obviously not optimistic about his chances of returning for Thursday's game. 42 minutes ago
  • Johnny Gaudreau should draw back into lineup
    Look for Johnny Gaudreau to be reinserted into the lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: Gaudreau was a healthy scratch on Tuesday after showing up late to the Saddledome on Monday. He participated in Wednesday's practice though and was back on the top line with Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan. As previously reported, Gaudreau also apologized for his actions. Today, 7:40 am
  • Max Domi has 35 points in 53 games
    Max Domi recorded an assist in Arizona's 2-1 loss to Vancouver on Wednesday.

    Advice: Domi has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 13 goals and 35 points in 53 contests this season. Today, 7:33 am
  • Anthony Duclair picks up an assist Wednesday
    Anthony Duclair had an assist in a 2-1 loss to Vancouver Wednesday night.

    Advice: Duclair last registered an assist on Jan. 12. He has 14 goals and 27 points in 52 contests this season. Today, 7:31 am
  • Patrick Sharp set for return to Chicago
    Patrick Sharp will make his return to Chicago on Thursday night.

    Advice: It should be an emotional return for Sharp and defenseman Johnny Oduya, who will be in the same building that they won the Stanley Cup in last season. The Stars have hosted the Blackhawks twice this season and the two clubs have each won one game. Today, 6:34 am
  • Bobby Ryan eyeing No. 9 for next year
    Bobby Ryan wants to wear No. 9, but he'll have to wait until next season to change.

    Advice: The number is available now after the Senators traded Milan Michalek to Toronto as part of the Dion Phaneuf deal. The Senators don't want to make mid-season changes because of the merchandising issues. Ryan intends to help fans with the number switch when it happens. He is having a great season in 2015-16, while wearing No. 6, with 19 goals and 45 points in 54 games. Today, 5:30 am
  • Montreal calls up Jacob De La Rose
    Jacob De La Rose has been called up from the minors.

    Advice: The transaction was made on Wednesday after the Canadiens moved Brian Flynn to injured reserve. Flynn, who was injured on Tuesday, is expected to miss six to eight weeks with a lower-body injury. De La Rose has no points in three games with Montreal this season. Today, 5:19 am
  • Johan Larsson a possibility for Thursday
    Johan Larsson (undisclosed) didn't practice Wednesday.

    Advice: Still, his status for Thursday's game hasn't been determined yet. Larsson might be ready to return after he missed Tuesday's contest against Florida. Today, 4:46 am
  • Matt Beleskey goalless in 10 straight games
    Matt Beleskey has not scored a goal in his last 10 games.

    Advice: He has contributed four assists in the past five matches, but his last goal came on Jan. 15 against Buffalo. Beleskey has found the back of the net eight times this season on 101 shots. He skated with David Krejci and David Pastrnak at practice on Wednesday. Today, 4:25 am
  • Zemgus Girgensons lands on injured reserve
    Zemgus Girgensons (lower body) is listed on injured reserve.

    Advice: He hasn't played since last Saturday because of a lower-body injury. Girgensons hasn't been a fantasy factor this season with 11 points in 45 games. Buffalo brought up Justin Bailey on Wednesday with the open roster spot. Yesterday, 12:32 pm
    Injured Reserve
  • Jaden Schwartz back with Tarasenko, Lehtera
    Jaden Schwartz was reunited with Vladimir Tarasenko and Jori Lehtera at Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: He was activated from injured reserve and is set to return on Friday night against Florida. The STL line enjoyed plenty of success last season and coach Ken Hitchcock likes that fit for Schwartz in his first game back from an ankle injury. Schwartz isn't expected to get special teams work in his return, but he'll get his fair share of even strength playing time. Yesterday, 12:00 pm
  • Jussi Jokinen registers 3 points Tuesday
    Jussi Jokinen notched a goal and two assists in a 7-4 win against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Florida's second line accounted for three goals and five assists in the contest, with Jokinen and Reilly Smith earning three points apiece. Vincent Trocheck registered two helpers in the win. The Panthers needed someone to step up with Aleksander Barkov out of the lineup and Jokinen's line was up to the task. Yesterday, 7:37 am
    Player Note
    Jussi Jokinen Fla - C,LW,RW
  • Joe Pavelski picks up an assist on Tuesday
    Joe Pavelski had an assist in a 2-0 victory over Chicago Tuesday night.

    Advice: Pavelski has 25 goals and 52 points in 52 games this season. Barring an injury, he should at least reach the 70-point mark for a third straight campaign, but it wouldn't be surprising at this point to see him also surpass his career-high of 79 points in a single season. Yesterday, 6:48 am
    Player Note
    Joe Pavelski SJ - C,LW,RW
  • Marcus Foligno (LBI) returns Tuesday night
    Marcus Foligno (lower body) returned to action on Tuesday February 9.

    Advice: Foligno missed Saturday's contest due to the ailment. He had a plus-two rating and three shots on goal in 15:01 minutes of ice time on Tuesday. Tuesday, 11:30 pm
