• Out 4-6 weeks after surgery
    Edmundson (hand) had surgery on Tuesday to stabilize a fractured hand and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.

    Advice: Edmundson sustained the injury during an intrasquad scrimmage over the weekend. The 30-year-old was acquired from the Canadiens over the summer to provide a physical element to the Capitals' defense corps but will be forced to wait to make his debut. Alexander Alexeyev is likely to see a regular role alongside Trevor van Riemsdyk on the third pairing in the interim. Rotowire.com 45 minutes ago
  • Away from team
    Tatar did not practice Tuesday because he was away from the team to get immigration papers sorted out, Evan Rawal of Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Advice: The Avalanche confirmed Tatar's absence was due to the immigration issue and not taking a puck off the hand during a preseason game Sunday. He is expected to back by Thursday, in time for Colorado's next preseason game. Rotowire.com Today, 6:12 am
  • Skating this week
    Makar (undisclosed) skated on his own Tuesday for a second time this week, Colorado Hockey Now reports.

    Advice: Makar then retreated to the perch above the arena to watch practice. Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said he does not need to see Makar in a preseason game but would like the star blueliner to knock off the rust prior to the regular season. Rotowire.com Today, 6:05 am
  • Skating, still out into December
    Bear (shoulder) is skating, but is expected to be out until around Christmas, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Advice: Bear remains a free agent, and interest in his services likely won't pick up until he's gotten the all-clear from a doctor. The 26-year-old defenseman could be a nice midseason addition for a team, but he's unlikely to play a fantasy-friendly role. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Sustains lower-body injury
    Faulk suffered a lower-body injury after a spill into the boards in Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Matthew DeFranks of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Advice: Faulk's status will be checked Wednesday after he failed to complete Tuesday's contest. The 31-year-old defenseman is a lock for the Blues' top four on the blue line when healthy, and if his injury is significant, it would be a big loss for the team. The Blues' next preseason game is Thursday in Chicago. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Scores in NHL preseason debut
    Danielson potted a goal in his NHL preseason debut Tuesday, leading to a 4-3 win over the Penguins.

    Advice: Danielson will be an exciting player to watch in training camp, as the Wings deemed him worthy of the ninth overall pick in this year's draft. Of course, Detroit has had some hits and misses when it comes to their top picks at forward in recent years. Filip Zadina, who is now with the Sharks, didn't pan out after the team from Motown took him sixth overall in the 2018 draft, but Lucas Raymond, their No. 4 overall pick from 2020, figures to be a mainstay on the top line for the foreseeable future. Lauded for his two-way skills, Danielson inked a three-year, entry-level contract in July. The strong power pivot tore his way through the WHL last season, adding 33 goals and 45 assists in 68 games for the Wheat Kings. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 7:25 pm
  • Sleeper playing behind Vasilevskiy
    Johansson has good size and mobility, and he could be counted on to play at least 30 games this season.

    Advice: At 28, he's younger than the Bolts' previous backups -- last season, Brian Elliott played in 22 games with the team, but that wasn't enough to keep Andrei Vasilevskiy fresh in the postseason. The all-star admitted that he was physically worn down at the end of last season. Johansson "brings a different energy" to the crease, according to Bolts goalie coach Frantz Jean. "He's got really good feet, and that's one thing that I always look at at a goaltender and as an organization. There's not that many 6-5 guys around playing in the minors. So, that was attractive to us." Johansson had a 2.33 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 26 AHL games last season and stopped 68 of 73 shots (.932 save percentage) in two starts (2-0-0) with the Avs. He's a definite sleeper for fantasy managers.

  • Remains out for personal reasons
    Chiarot (personal) isn't expected to return until midway through the preseason, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Advice: It remains to be seen exactly where Chiarot will fit in the lineup since the Red Wings acquired Jeff Petry, Shayne Gostisbehere and Justin Holl in the offseason. Last year, Chiarot potted five goals to go with 14 helpers through 76 games to complement a career-high 164 blocked shots, but his minus-31 plus-minus rating was the worst on the team.

  • Heads to AHL club
    Fleming was reassigned to AHL Henderson on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Advice: Fleming provided 27 points in 63 contests with QMJHL Sherbrooke last season to finish out his junior career. The defenseman is now expected to join the professional ranks with Henderson this season. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 6:40 pm
