  • Set to play Thursday
    Karlsson (illness) is expected to be in the lineup for Game 3 on Thursday.

    Advice: Karlsson missed Wednesday's practice because of the illness, but he was back on the ice Thursday and said afterwards that he feels good. He has 10 goals and 15 points in 19 playoff contests this year. Karlsson is projected to play on a line with Reilly Smith and Michael Amadio. Today, 12:03 pm
  • Has MCL strain
    The injury that caused Dadonov to miss Dallas' final three playoff contests was an MCL strain, Stars GM Jim Nill told Brian Rea of Bally Sports Southwest on Thursday.

    Advice: Dadonov hasn't fully recovered from the injury. He recorded seven goals and 33 points in 73 regular-season outings in 2022-23 and contributed another four goals and 10 points in 16 playoff contests. Dadonov is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his three-year, $15 million contract. Today, 10:08 am
  • Will have knee surgery
    Hakanpaa will undergo knee surgery, per Dallas radio analyst Bruce LeVine.

    Advice: Hakanpaa battled the injury during the playoffs. He had a goal, two points, 16 PIM, 65 hits and 38 blocks in 15 postseason contests this year. He also missed four of six Dallas games from May 9-21 because of injury. Over 82 regular-season outings, Hakanpaa recorded six goals, 16 points, 60 PIM, 224 hits and 128 blocks. Today, 9:23 am
  • Re-ups with Blueshirts
    Blidh signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Rangers on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Advice: Blidh posted 23 points in 53 AHL games split between Hartford and Coloradothis year. The winger is a veteran of 84 NHL contests over the last seven years, but he's managed just 12 points over that span. He'll likely be organizational depth for the Rangers in 2023-24, and he'll be limited to a bottom-six role at the NHL level at best. Yesterday, 4:49 pm
  • Inks two-year deal
    Athanasiou signed a two-year, $8.5 million contract with the Blackhawks on Wednesday, per PuckPedia.

    Advice: Athanasiou was able to turn his second-best season into a two-year deal after logging 20 goals and 20 helpers in 81 contests in 2022-23. The 28-year-old forward was often playing in a top-six role for Chicago, especially later in the season after trades decimated the team's forward depth. He's a natural center but may fit better on the wing, and the potential that he could end up playing with Connor Bedard makes Athanasiou slightly more interesting for fantasy managers. Yesterday, 3:07 pm
  • Remaining with Dallas
    Petrovic signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Stars on Wednesday.

    Advice: Petrovic was part of the leadership group at AHL Texas this year, logging a career-best 27 points in 71 contests. The veteran defenseman will likely fill a similar role in 2023-24 while also being available as an option if the Stars are in need of reinforcements on the back end. Yesterday, 3:03 pm
  • Contract with Swedish club canceled
    Johansson's two-year contract with Farjestad BK of the Swedish Hockey League, which was signed in May, was terminated Wednesday.

    Advice: It appears Johansson will be looking for an NHL contract instead. He had a 2.33 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 26 AHL contests with the Eagles in 2022-23. The 27-year-old has appeared in 35 career NHL games, posting an 11-13-4 record, 3.35 GAA and .886 save percentage. Yesterday, 12:18 pm
  • Misses practice with illness
    Karlsson missed Wednesday's practice because of an illness, according to Ben Gotz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    Advice: Karlsson is still probable for Game 3 on Thursday. It would be a big loss for Vegas if he isn't able to play, especially given that he's provided 10 goals and 15 points in 19 playoff contests this year. If Karlsson isn't available Thursday, then Teddy Blueger might draw into the lineup for the first time since May 25. Yesterday, 11:13 am
  • Inks two-year extension
    Gavrikov agreed to a two-year, $11.75 million contract extension with the Kings on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

    Advice: Gavrikov was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his three-year, $8.4 million deal. He had six goals, 19 points, 38 PIM, 74 hits and 115 blocks in 72 contests split between the Blue Jackets and the Kings in 2022-23. The Kings will likely deploy Gavrikov in a top-four capacity next season. Yesterday, 10:41 am
