  • Duclair doesn't have any points in 2016-17
    Anthony Duclair has no points and a minus-four rating in his first five games of 2016-17.

    Advice: Duclair is coming off a solid rookie campaign where he scored 20 goals and 44 points in 81 games. "Duclair, he had a real high shooting percentage last year that everything he shot really went in the net," coach Dave Tippett said. "But now the concerning thing for me now is he hasn’t gotten as near as many chances as he did last year. So he’s gotta continue to work at his game to get his game to a level where he can help us." Regarding that high shooting percentage, Duclair didn't get a lot of shots last season (105) and hasn't this season either (seven). It's too early to say if Duclair is going to endure a sophomore slump. Today, 5:30 am
  • Torrey Mitchell (UBI) plays Monday
    Torrey Mitchell (upper body) was able to play on Monday.

    Advice: Mitchell left Saturday's game after sustaining an ailment, but he didn't end up missing a full contest due to the problem. He had no points and a minus-one rating in 13:37 minutes of ice time Monday night. Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Versteeg lifts Flames past Hawks in shoot-out
    Kris Versteeg put the dagger in his old club with the shoot-out winner on Monday night.

    Advice: The Flames and Blackhawks had gone 0-13 to Versteeg's turn, who would bury a pretty shot for the game's only such marker. The veteran winger blocked a shot during his 13:49 of ice time, so we wouldn't take this as a sign of things to come. Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Patrick Kane stays hot with another goal
    Patrick Kane kept up his scoring ways, tallying his second goal of the season during Monday's 3-2 shoot-out loss to Calgary.

    Advice: Well it's not like he's been held off the board much. Kane has eight points in seven games thus far, and looks well on his well to competing for another couple pieces of hardware. Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Gallagher extends point streak to three games
    Brendan Gallagher extended his point streak to three games with a power play goal in Monday's 3-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Alexander Radulov had his mitts all over Montreal's 3-1 win over Philadelphia on Monday night.

  • Nino Niederreiter nets a goal vs. Islanders
    Nino Niederreiter found the back of the net in Minnesota's 6-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday.

    Advice: Niederreiter has a goal and three points in six games this season. It's worth noting that he also logged 16:03 minutes on Sunday, which is more than two minutes more than he got in any previous 2016-17 contest. Yesterday, 7:28 am
  • Sam Reinhart shifts from the wing to center
    Sam Reinhart served as a center during Sunday's practice.

    Advice: Reinhart was skating on the second line with Tyler Ennis and Zemgus Girgensons. Reinhart had been serving as a right winger, but Sabres coach Dan Bylsma wants to get more out of him and this positional change might help accomplish that. "Sam needs to get a little bit more feet moving, a little bit more speed to his game," Bylsma said. "He’s made some great plays for us early on … but we need to get more out of Sam, moving his feet more, playing a little bit faster, a little bit quicker and providing a little bit more offense for our team." Yesterday, 6:52 am
  • Josh Jooris pots first goal as a Ranger
    Josh Jooris scored his first goal as a New York Ranger Sunday.

    Advice: Jooris was a healthy scratch the first two games of the season and has been seeing fourth line minutes. He had four goals and 13 points in 59 games with Calgary last season but was not given a qualifying offer and signed with New York instead. He has no fantasy value. Yesterday, 5:46 am
  • Corey Perry gets goal and assist Sunday
    Corey Perry scored once and added an assist Sunday.

    Advice: Perry now has 669 career points and he has tied Paul Kariya for third place on the all-time Ducks list. He now trails the first place Teemu Selanne and his linemate Ryan Getzlaf. Perry now has three goals and five points in six games. Look for a 35 goal, 65-70 point season from the talented winger. Yesterday, 4:15 am
