Player Notes

  • Marc-Edouard Vlasic (flu) returns Friday
    Marc-Edouard Vlasic (flu) returned to action on Friday March 24.

    Advice: Vlasic missed Tuesday's game due to the disease. He had a blocked shot in 14:46 minutes of ice time. Yesterday, 11:47 pm
  • Josh Bailey returned to action on Friday March 24. Yesterday, 11:47 pm
  • Hutchinson allows only 2 goals in loss to ANA
    Michael Hutchinson stopped 32 of 34 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

    Advice: After a very long layoff in goal which saw Hutchinson play less than 55 minutes in two months, it is very encouraging to see him regain NHL caliber form in goal for the Jets. The Jets will most likely choose to protect Connor Helleybuyck from the Vegas expansion, leaving Hutchinson exposed. If Hutchinson can show he can still be a quality NHL starter in the final games of the season, he might just be snatched up by the Golden Knights. For now we'd stay far away from the 27-year-old netminder. His record dropped to 6-12-3 with a 3.06 goals against average and a .900 save percentage. Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Jonathan Bernier's dominance continues
    Jonathan Bernier stopped 17 of 18 shots in a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: Bernier's dominance continues, he is now 9-2-1 with a .940 save percentage since taking over the starting goaltending duties from the injured John Gibson. Bernier has improved his goals against average from 2.93 to 2.45 and his save percentage from .901 to .918 during Gibson's absence. Meanwhile, Bernier's overall record has improved to 17-7-3 on the year after tonight's win. Gibson's injury might just have resurrected Bernier's NHL career. Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Josh Morrissey scores 6th of the year
    Josh Morrissey picked up his 6th goal of the season in a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

    Advice: Morrissey tipped a Blake Wheeler shot passed Bernier and into the empty cage for his first career power play marker. He has now put together an all-around rookie campaign, picking up 20 points in 75 games this season, while averaging 19:21 of ice time. Although he isn't worth owning in fantasy pools yet, he has some offensive potential and can be someone to keep an eye on for the future. Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Jakob Silfverberg picks up goal and assist
    Jakob Silfverberg picked up a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night.

    Advice: Silfverberg picked up his assist when Andrew Cogliano bounced the puck off a Jets defender and into the net. Silfverberg then picked his goal when he scored into an empty net to put the game away for the Ducks. The goal was his 21st of the season, a new career high and he is now up to 44 points in 71 games this season. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Daniel O'Regan heads to the AHL
    Daniel O'Regan has been sent to the minors.

    Advice: O'Regan has no points in two games with the Sharks. At the AHL level he has 20 goals and 52 points in 54 contests. Yesterday, 3:28 pm
    Not Active
  • Aaron Ekblad (neck) misses practice Friday
    Aaron Ekblad (neck) didn't practice on Friday and is experiencing headaches.

    Advice: Given that Ekblad only recently returned from a concussion, the news that he has headaches might understandably sound concerning, but Panthers coach Tom Rowe said it's unrelated. "He has the headaches because of the neck injury," Rowe said. "There’s no reason to rush him back." Ekblad also dealt with headaches when he suffered whiplash back in September and in that instance he initially thought he had a concussion. Yesterday, 2:20 pm
  • Dillon Dube signs an entry-level deal
    Dillon Dube has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Calgary Flames.

    Advice: Dube has 20 goals and 55 points in 40 OHL contests. He was taken with the 56th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Yesterday, 1:31 pm
    Not Active
  • Hansen (UBI) declares himself ready to return
    Jannik Hansen (upper body) said he's returning to the Sharks' lineup on Friday.

    Advice: Hansen was originally called a game-time decision. It's not clear what the lines will be for San Jose, but it looks like Timo Meier will probably be scratched to make room for Hansen. Yesterday, 10:03 am
  • Darren Helm (LBI) won't play on Friday
    Darren Helm (lower body) has been ruled out for Friday's contest.

    Advice: The good news is that Helm might still return on Sunday. He last played on March 18. He has eight goals and 13 points in 42 contests this season. Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • Melker Karlsson (LBI) is a game-time decision
    Melker Karlsson's (lower body) status for Friday's game is expected to be determined close to game-time.

    Advice: Karlsson has been out for six consecutive games. He has nine goals and 19 points in 60 contests in 2016-17. Yesterday, 8:45 am
  • Alex Pietrangelo has 11 points in 13 games
    Alex Pietrangelo had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over Vancouver.

    Advice: His 11th marker of the season was scored into an empty net. Pietrangelo has compiled 11 points in the past 13 matches. Yesterday, 8:19 am
  • Steve Mason gets his 100th win with Flyers
    Steve Mason earned his 100th career victory with Philadelphia on Thursday.

    Advice: Mason ranks third on the Flyers' all-time goaltenders wins chart, behind Bernie Parent (232 wins) and Ron Hextall (240). Since joining the Flyers during the 2011-12 campaign, Mason has been more hit than miss in Philadelphia, but this season has been an exception as he has a 2.73 GAA and .906 save percentage in 53 contests. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and there's a good chance that the Flyers will let him walk. Yesterday, 7:07 am
  • Drew Doughty reaches the 40-point milestone
    Drew Doughty scored a goal and registered an assist in the Kings' 5-2 win over Winnipeg on Thursday.

    Advice: Doughty has nine goals and 41 points in 73 contests this season. He's reached the 40-point mark for the third consecutive campaign and fifth time in his career. He'll still likely fall behind his 2015-16 mark of 51 points though. Yesterday, 6:35 am
  • David Pastrnak scores in loss to Lightning
    David Pastrnak netted his 32nd goal of the season.

    Advice: He opened the scoring 1:33 into the second period in a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay. The 20-year-old forward has amassed 64 points in 67 games. Yesterday, 5:16 am
  • Ben Bishop makes 19 saves in win
    Ben Bishop allowed two goals on 19 shots in picking up a win for the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday against Winnipeg.

    Advice: It was the first win he's picked up for the Kings since coming over in a deadline deal from Tampa Bay. He's had three quality starts since coming to Hollywood though. His numbers over the season have been fairly decent with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage in 37 appearances. Yesterday, 1:40 am
  • Connor Hellebuyck shelled for 5 goals vs LA
    Connor Hellebuyck allowed five goals on 36 shots in a 5-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

    Advice: Hellebuyck was the victim of special teams on this night. Four of the Kings five goals were on the power-play and all three in the third were with the man advantage. He's been hit and miss all season and was clearly miss on this night. He brings a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage into his next start. Yesterday, 1:37 am
  • Mathieu Perreault picks up two points
    Mathieu Perreault scored and added an assist in a 5-2 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

    Advice: Perreault opened up the scoring, tipping in a point shot for his 10th. He would later assist on Patrik Laine's 34th of the season. Perreault has three straight multi point games now. He's posted 35 points in 57 games. Thursday, 10:28 pm
  • Patrick Kane nets goal in shootout win vs DAL
    Patrick Kane scored a goal in regulation and one in the shootout in Thursday's 3-2 win over Dallas.

    Advice: Kane opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 8:13 mark of the first period. He's now picked up at least one point in seven of his last eight contests. Kane has 33 goals and 81 points in 74 games this season. Marian Hossa also scored for the Blackhawks, while Artemi Panarin added the game-winner in the shootout. Thursday, 9:35 pm
