Player Notes

  • Vinnie Hinostroza scores in preseason opener
    Vinnie Hinostroza was good for a goal on two shots in Sunday's 6-2 preseason loss against the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Advice: Hinostroza took a minus-3 rating in a game which was ugly for the visitors. Five players were at minus-3 or worse, including C Nick Schmaltz with a minus-4. The 25-year-old Hinostroza showed a nose for the goal, lighting the lamp 16 times to go along with a career-high 39 points over 72 games in his first campaign with the Coyotes. He is worth a look as a No. 4 center in fantasy pools or 14 or more teams heading into 2019-20, and as a streaming option when injuries strike your squad. Today, 5:53 pm
  • Cody Eakin opens preseason with two points
    Cody Eakin picked up an even-strength goal and an assist on a shorthanded marker in Sunday's 6-2 preseason victory against the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: Eakin also had a plus-2 rating, three shots on net, a blocked shot, a minor penalty and two hits across 19:29 of TOI. OK, so Eakin is back in midseason form. He offered a hand over the ice, not afraid to get his nose in the action. The Winnipeg native posted career highs in goals (22), points (41) and plus/minus (+19) while averaging 15:23 of TOI. That's about what you can expect again in 2019-20, making him worth a look in deeper fantasy pools in the final rounds. Today, 5:49 pm
  • Malcolm Subban goes distance in preseason win
    Malcolm Subban allowed two goals on 30 shots in Sunday's preseason opener against the Arizona Coyotes.

    Advice: Subban allowed a goal exactly four minutes in against Ilya Lyubushkin, and he coughed up two goals in the first 9:08. However, after Vinnie Hinostroza's goal midway through the first he didn't give anyone else a chance. Max Pacioretty took over offensively and had a hat trick to give Subban all the support he needed. Subban will work as the understudy to Marc-Andre Fleury, but if something happens to the start, Subban has proven he can be a valuable fantasy commodity when starting. Today, 5:42 pm
  • Max Pacioretty opens preseason with hat trick
    Max Pacioretty registered a hat trick in Sunday's preseason opener against the Arizona Coyotes and he also added an assist.

    Advice: The 30-year-old Connecticut native registered 22 goals and 40 points with a minus-13 rating across 66 games in his first campaign with the Golden Knights after 10 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens. He appeared to get comfortable as the season went on, and he certainly looked comfortable in this one. If he can get back to the 50-point neighborhood he will be a decent fantasy asset in most formats, especially if he can get back into the black in plus/minus rating. Today, 5:37 pm
  • Mikael Granlund appears more comfortable
    Mikael Granlund seems more comfortable with the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: "From the onset of training camp, it just seems like he feels like more of a Predator and this is more of his team right now," said Predators GM David Poile. "I’m as optimistic as I can be that we’re going to see the Mikael Granlund that we traded for." Granlund only had one goal and four assists in 16 games with Nashville after he was acquired from Minnesota last year. He should be better in 2019-20 following a full training camp with his new team. Today, 3:54 pm
  • Pavel Francouz happy for second camp
    Pavel Francouz feels good going into his second NHL training camp.

    Advice: Francouz knows what to expect and he is expected to be with the team for the entire 2019-20 season as Philipp Grubauer's backup. "It’s been good. It’s fun. It’s hockey," Francouz said. "Good practices, good skates. It’s been a great time. Even last year I was happy I was here, but this year is better." He only appeared in two games with Colorado last season. Today, 3:48 pm
  • Flames sign Mangiapane to 1-year contract
    Andrew Mangiapane has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames.

    Advice: The contract carries an average annual value of $715,000. In 44 games with the Flames last season, he produced eight goals and five assists. Mangiapane also had one goal in five playoff matches. Today, 2:42 pm
  • John Moore (shoulder) out for start of season
    John Moore (shoulder) will not be available for the start of the 2019-20 season.

    Advice: Moore is working his way back from off-season shoulder surgery and the chance that he could miss the start of the year was always a possibility He underwent the procedure on June 26 and his recovery time was set for four-to-six months. Today, 2:36 pm
  • Kevan Miller won't be ready for start of year
    Kevan Miller (knee) won't be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season.

    Advice: Miller was limited to just 39 game last season and didn't play in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs after he suffered pair of fractured kneecaps, among other injuries. "Miller’s timeline isn’t going to be opening day. He hasn’t even been on the ice yet," said Bruins GM Don Sweeney. "He’s got a test coming around [Sept.] 24 and that will determine his next step in rehab. We’re going to be very cautious with the next steps with Kevan for a healthy return." Today, 2:32 pm

    Advice: The combination participated in a scrimmage together on Sunday. Cirelli spent most of the 2018-19 season as a bottom-six forward, but he did move up at times late in the year and has offensive upside if he gets a chance to move up the depth chart. Today, 10:35 am
  • Ondrej Kase expects to be ready for opener
    Ondrej Kase was on the ice Saturday in a regular practice jersey.

    Advice: Kase was sporting a yellow non-contact jersey during the first day of camp on Friday.
