  • Missing Game 1
    Luostarinen (lower body) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals versus the Golden Knights, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Advice: Luostarinen was initially expected to be fine for the series opener after suffering an injury in Game 4 versus the Hurricanes and apparently aggravating it at practice Friday. That won't be the case, with Zac Dalpe instead projected to join the lineup in a bottom-six role. Luostarinen can be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's Game 2. Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Clear for 2023-24
    Nichushkin (personal) will not be investigated by the NHL and is eligible to play in 2023-24, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: An incident involving police occurred in Seattle during the Avalanche's first-round series, and it caused Nichushkin to be away from the team. The winger was not charged nor considered criminally liable during the situation. He should be a top-six option for the Avalanche next year, especially with Gabriel Landeskog (knee) expected to miss a second full campaign. Saturday, 4:03 pm
  • Game-time decision Saturday
    Luostarinen (lower body) will be a game-time decision Saturday versus Vegas, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Advice: Luostarinen left practice early Friday after he was injured in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on May 24. Coach Paul Maurice is optimistic that Luostarinen will be in the lineup for Game 1. Luostarinen had two goals and five points in the opening round versus Boston, but he has not picked up a point in nine games over the last two rounds. Saturday, 2:15 pm
  • Heading to Swiss League
    Dauphin, who finished the 2022-23 campaign with an upper-body injury, signed a one-year contract with Ambri-Piotta of Switzerland's National League on Thursday.

    Advice: Dauphin's contract also includes a club option to extend the deal for a second season. The 28-year-old forward had one point (a goal) in 21 contests with Arizona in 2022-23. Through 94 career NHL games, Dauphin has contributed eight goals and 17 points. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, so the Coyotes no longer possess his NHL rights. Friday, 3:20 pm
  • Expected to play Saturday
    Luostarinen left Friday's practice early but is expected to suit up for Game 1 against Vegas on Saturday, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Advice: Luostarinen was injured in Game 4 last round against the Hurricanes but likely won't miss any time. He's dressed in all 16 postseason games to date, tallying five points and 14 shots in the process. Friday, 3:12 pm
  • Inks two-year extension
    Pezzetta signed a two-year, $1.625 million extension with the Canadiens on Friday, Sportsnet reports.

    Advice: Pezzetta drew into 63 games with Montreal in 2022-23, picking up seven goals and 15 points while averaging 9:19 of ice time. The 25-year-old forward should continue to post similar numbers while skating in a bottom-six role over the next two campaigns. Friday, 8:20 am
  • Has hip resurfacing
    Kane underwent hip resurfacing Thursday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Advice: Kane is expected to need four-to-six months to recover from the procedure, so his availability for the start of the 2023-24 campaign is very questionable. He recorded 21 goals and 57 points in 73 contests between Chicago and the Rangers in 2022-23 and contributed another goal and six points in seven playoff outings this year. Kane has completed his eight-year, $84 million contract and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. Thursday, 12:44 pm
  • Extends point streak to five games
    Marchessault found the back of the net in a 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Marchessault added to the Stars' misery by scoring midway through the second period to push Vegas' lead to 4-0. It was his ninth goal and 17th point in 17 playoff contests this year. Marchessault will take his five-game point streak into the Stanley Cup Finals versus Florida, which is set to begin Saturday. Monday, 8:22 pm
  • Leads Vegas with three points
    Karlsson scored two goals and registered an assist in Vegas' 6-0 victory over Dallas in Game 6 on Monday.

    Advice: Karlsson went through a bit of a quiet patch from May 21-27 in which he was limited to one point (a goal) over four contests, but that mini-slump is clearly behind him. He's up to 10 goals and 14 points in 17 playoff outings this year. His first marker Monday, which gave Vegas a 2-0 edge midway through the first period, was also his first power-play goal of the postseason. Monday, 8:19 pm
