Player Notes

  • On unconditional waivers
    Nousiainen was put on unconditional waivers by LA on Wednesday for the purpose of terminating his contract, per John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio.

    Advice: Nousiainen had nine assists in 52 regular-season contests with AHL Ontario in 2023-24. He also registered two helpers in eight minor-league playoff outings. If the 23-year-old clears waivers as expected, he might return to his native Finland. Before signing a three-year, entry-level contract with the Kings in March 2022, he spent parts of four seasons with the KalPa Kuopio of Finland's Liiga. Rotowire.com Today, 12:21 pm
  • Set to start Game 4
    Oettinger is expected to tend the twine on the road in Game 4 against the Oilers on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Advice: Oettinger has been struggling for consistency of late, allowing just one goal in three of his last six outings while also giving up three or more tallies in the other trio of appearances. Still, the backstop is sporting a 2.05 GAA and .922 save percentage over that stretch while going 4-2. Based on his recent trend, Oettinger is due for a strong performance in Game 4.

    Hakanpaa (lower body) isn't expected to play in Game 4 against Edmonton on Wednesday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Advice: Hakanpaa hasn't been in the lineup since March 16, and it's unclear when he might be able to return. He had two goals, 12 points, 196 hits and 123 blocks in 64 regular-season appearances in 2023-24. Rotowire.com Today, 10:29 am

    Advice: Forsling helped out on a Sam Bennett tally in the second period to tie the game at one apiece. Forsling added three shots on goal, four hits and a plus-1 rating in 22:42 of ice time. The 27-year-old has been a consistent source of offense for Florida -- he has points in four of his last five games and he leads the team in points on the backend.

    Montour notched a helper on the game-winning goal in overtime in Tuesday's 3-2 win over New York in Game 4.

    Advice: Montour had the secondary assist on Sam Reinhart's game-winner in overtime to help tie the series. Montour was held off the scoresheet in six consecutive contests prior to getting on the board in Tuesday's win. He added four shots, six hits and a minus-1 rating in 23:50 of ice time, which was the most of any skater in the game. The 30-year-old defenseman has been streaky during the playoffs -- seven of his nine points have come in three outings combined. Montour is up to three goals, six assists and a plus-2 rating in 15 postseason appearances so far. Rotowire.com Today, 9:13 am
