Player Notes

  • Rises to NHL again
    Lajoie was called up from AHL Toronto on Tuesday.

    Advice: Lajoie was sent down Sunday, but he'll be back as defensive depth with Timothy Liljegren (undisclosed) unavailable. It's unclear if Lajoie will play versus the Golden Knights. 16 minutes ago
  • Won't play Tuesday
    Jensen (lower body) won't be available Tuesday versus the Red Wings, per Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post.

    Advice: Jensen will miss his second consecutive contest. He has contributed eight assists, 50 shots on goal and 85 blocked shots in 56 games this season. Ethan Bear is expected to play against Detroit on Tuesday due to Jensen's absence. Today, 2:06 pm
  • Loaned to AHL
    Pouliot was assigned to AHL Texas on Tuesday.

    Advice: Pouliot has picked up five shots on goal, five blocked shots and four hits in five NHL appearances this season. His return to the minors suggests that the Stars could get back Jani Hakanpaa (upper body) or Nils Lundkvist (concussion) for Tuesday's matchup versus Colorado. Today, 12:12 pm
  • Ready to rock
    Stecher (lower body) will be activated from injured reserve ahead of his return to the lineup Tuesday against Montreal, Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports.

    Advice: Stecher's return from a 13-game absence could result in Josh Brown being a healthy scratch Tuesday. The 29-year-old Stecher has one goal, four assists, 41 shots on net, 57 blocked shots and 43 hits over 42 games during the 2023-24 campaign. Today, 11:32 am
  • Still sitting out
    Vlasic (upper body) won't play Tuesday against New Jersey, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Advice: Although Vlasic will miss a second straight contest Tuesday, the veteran defender is reportedly "doing well," suggesting he probably won't be sidelined long term. Either way, Vlasic has picked up just seven points through 33 contests this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status. Today, 11:02 am
  • Remains unavailable
    Zub (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Predators, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Advice: Zub will miss a third straight game with his lower-body issue. Travis Hamonic will likely continue to skate on the third pairing until Zub, who's collected 20 points through 44 games this season, is ready to return. Today, 9:42 am
  • Won't suit up against Carolina
    Bogosian (upper body) won't be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Bogosian, who took part in Tuesday's morning skate, will miss his third consecutive contest. However, he will travel with the Wild on the team's upcoming two-game road trip, so he could return Thursday versus Nashville or Saturday against St. Louis. Bogosian has collected one goal, nine points, 37 PIM, 83 hits and 53 blocked shots in 44 appearances this season between Minnesota and Tampa Bay. Today, 9:13 am
  • Won't play Tuesday
    Fleury (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Philadelphia, per Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida.

    Advice: Fleury will miss his third straight contest despite taking part in the morning skate. He has supplied one goal, three assists, 23 blocked shots and 23 hits over 17 appearances this season. Fleury's next chance to play will be Thursday against the Sabres. Today, 9:05 am
  • Goal, assist vs. Dallas
    Pulock tallied a goal and an assist in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

    Advice: Pulock opened the scoring late in the first period, beating Scott Wedgewood with a wrister to put the Islanders ahead 1-0. The 29-year-old blueliner would add another point in the second, setting up a Kyle MacLean tally. It's the first multi-point game of the year for Pulock, who had just one goal and two points in eight games since returning from IR. He's up to 10 points (four goals, six assists) with 91 blocked shots and 68 hits through 34 games this season. Today, 8:23 am
