Player Notes

  • 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
  • Senators trim camp roster to 52 players
    Jack Dougherty will join AHL Belleville's training camp after being cut from Ottawa's training camp roster.

    Advice: Forward Francois Beauchemin and defensemen Michael Brodzinski will also head to Belleville's camp. Additionally, the Senators returned Kevin Mandolese (Cape Breton, QMJHL), Mads Sogaard (Medicine Hat, WHL) and Jonathan Gruden (London, OHL) to their junior teams. Today, 2:10 pm
  • Nikita Zadorov exits Sunday's scrimmage
    Nikita Zadorov (undisclosed) was forced to leave Sunday's scrimmage.

    Advice: Coach Jared Bednar didn't have an update on Zadorov's status afterward, but he expects to know more on Monday. We will keep you posted. Today, 12:11 pm
  • Travis Dermott (shoulder) may sit 12-14 games
    Coach Mike Babcock believes that Travis Dermott (shoulder) could miss 12-14 games to start the 2019-20 season.

    Advice: That would put his return to the lineup at late October or early November. He underwent off-season shoulder surgery. Today, 10:14 am
  • Stephen Johns (head) not ready to return
    Stephen Johns will remain on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, according to Dallas GM Jim Nill.

    Advice: Johns didn't play at all in 2018-19 because of post-traumatic headaches. Andrej Sekera's signing in the off-season was a good insurance move as a result of Johns' uncertain status. Today, 8:48 am
  • Andrej Sekera paired with Miro Heiskanen
    Andrej Sekera has been skating alongside Miro Heiskanen during training camp.

    Advice: Sekera's 2018-19 season left a lot to be desired, as he wasn't healthy and was eventually bought out by the Edmonton Oilers. However, the Stars believe he can bounce back and be a very strong addition. "I actually think he's going to be the one guy who is going to be a surprise," said Dallas GM Jim Nill. "You talk about Perry and Pavelski, I think people are going to be surprised with what he brings to us." Today, 8:26 am
  • Cale Makar Calder contender
    If you are looking for one rookie to stand out this upcoming season, Cale Makar should be very high on your list.

    Advice: Makar is set to take over as Colorado's power-play quarterback with the departure of Tyson Barrie and he has the offensive skill to thrive in that role. Last year, he registered six points in 10 playoff games after jumping straight from the NCAA and was poised beyond his 20 years during the Avs' post-season run. We would not be surprised if Makar registered 45-50 points in his first NHL season, which is excellent for a defenseman. Today, 8:06 am
  • Bruins sign Charlie McAvoy to 3-year deal
    Charlie McAvoy has agreed to a three-year contract with the Boston Bruins.

    Advice: The deal carries an average annual value of $4.9 million. According to McKenzie, McAvoy's Year 3 salary, and Qualifying Offer base, is $7.3 million. The 21-year-old defenseman has been limited to 117 games during his first two seasons, but he is an important part of Boston's defense corps. He has averaged just over 22 minutes per game, while earning 60 points, 98 penalty minutes, 171 blocks and 225 hits. Today, 7:17 am
  • Wings excited to see Seider in preseason
    2019 first-round pick Moritz Seider hasn't looked out of place at Detroit's training camp.

    Advice: Detroit coach Jeff Blashill has been very impressed with the 18-year-old defenseman's skill and maturity. "He’s got real good instincts," Blashill said. "Real good brain. Can move, he’s big ... I’ve gotten to see him in different settings. At the men’s worlds, he was super safe. At the prospects tournament, he was super aggressive offensively. It’s a real positive that he’s got that offensive touch, but let’s get him into games." Despite Blashill's enthusiasm, it is likely that Seider will not break camp with the Red Wings. That said, there is a real chance that the Wings will dispatch him to Grand Rapids of the AHL instead of sending him back to Germany so as to keep him close to Detroit. Today, 5:55 am
  • Tony DeAngelo remains unsigned
    Tony DeAngelo is an RFA and is not close to coming to an agreement with the Rangers.

    Advice: DeAngelo had a nice season last year for the Rangers with four goals and 30 points with 77 penalty minutes in 61 games. He has been pushed downward on the depth chart with the acquisition of Jacob Trouba from Winnipeg and will see second power play time once he signs. "They know where we are and we know where they are," GM Jeff Gorton told The Post. "I expect that I’ll talk to [Deangelo’s agent, Pat Brisson] in the next couple of days." Today, 5:44 am
  • Mitchell Vande Sompel suffers arm injury
    Mitchell Vande Sompel suffered an arm injury in practice Friday.

    Advice: Vande Sompel was in a sling Saturday and will miss most, if not all, of training camp. He was a third round pick of the Islanders in 2015 and has yet to play a game in the NHL. The defenseman will start the season in the minors once he recovers from his arm injury. He has no fantasy value. Today, 5:37 am
  • Johnny Boychuk healthy at camp
    Johnny Boychuk is healthy at the start of training camp after breaking his foot in the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs.

    Advice: Boychuk missed the second round of the playoffs against Carolina as the Hurricanes swept the Islanders but he may have been able to play if there was a Game 6. He had all summer to recover and was able to work out properly. It was the first time in three seasons that Boychuk was healthy coming into camp as he had knee woes the past two camps. Boychuk had three goals and 19 points last season and it has been five seasons since he had any fantasy value. Today, 5:34 am
  • Trevor van Riemsdyk unlikely to start season
    Trevor van Riemsdyk (shoulder) is unlikely to start the season.

    Advice: The defenseman underwent surgery at the beginning of May and the timetable of four-to-six months looks to be five-six months at this time. He is skating but is not participating in practices. "I don't expect him to be ready for the start of the season," Hurricanes President and General Manager Don Waddell told last week. "It just depends on how things go for him. There's no reason to rush him back in game one or game two. It's a long season. If we're going to go deep, we're going to need him. We'll be very patient." Van Riemsdyk has no fantasy value. Today, 4:37 am
  • Frederik Claesson on PTO with Canes
    The Carolina Hurricanes have Frederik Claesson in training camp on a PTO.

    Advice: The Hurricanes are expected to eventually sign the defenseman who played with the Rangers last season and had 33 blocks and 76 hits in 37 games. He will likely start the season as a sixth or seventh defenseman and has no fantasy value at this time. Today, 4:32 am
  • Olli Juolevi sits out scrimmage Saturday
    Olli Juolevi sat out the Canucks scrimmage on Saturday.

    Advice: Juolevi skated in both practices but was on the sidelines during the scrimmage as he is still recovering from major knee surgery that occurred in December. "We are now in the part of the rehab where I’m going to push my hardest and see how it goes and, like I said, it’s been a good couple of days so far," Juolevi said. "You need to bring the trust that you can push yourself to the limit and still function with your head and stuff. So I think it was a great, great day yesterday." Look for Juolevi to start the season in the minors but see time with the big club this season. Today, 3:55 am
  • Radim Simek misses start of camp
    Radim Simek (knee surgery) did not participate in practice.

    Advice: Simek had surgery in March after he tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee. He was a big part of the Sharks blueline last season before the injury as he partnered with Brent Burns and provided great defensive play for the Sharks. He had only a goal and nine points in 41 games for San Jose last season and has little fantasy value at this time. There is still no timetable for his return. Today, 3:46 am
  • Erik Karlsson looks healthy at training camp
    Erik Karlsson has looked great at the start of training camp.

    Advice: Karlsson had severe problems last season with a groin injury that hampered his season. He had only three goals (although he chipped in with 42 assists) in 53 games and required surgery in the off-season. "He looks way ahead of where I expected him to be," coach Peter DeBoer said. "I wasn't sure what to expect. But he looks great and feels great, so that's a real positive sign. I think if you'd asked me a month ago if he'd look like he did right now and he was participating full-out, I'd probably be a little reluctant to say yes. But that wasn't even a question. I thought he looked great out there." Look for a big season from Karlsson as he should get 70-80 points if he can remain healthy. He should be the second defenseman off the board in leagues this season. Today, 3:40 am
  • Adam Larsson loses 10 pounds in off-season
    Defenseman Adam Larsson lost 10 pounds in the off-season.

    Advice: It was a tough 2018-19 campaign for Larsson who had three goals and 20 points but was a minus-28 after being a plus-player in each of his last four seasons. Coach Dave Tippett had a talk with Larsson before the start of camp. "I watched him in the World Championship with (Oliver) Ekman-Larsson and he was free and easy. He had a smile on his face. I told Adam this summer I wanted the World Championship Larsson, not the Edmonton Oilers Larsson," said Tippett. "Right now, he seems like he’s having fun, he’s trying to dangle guys with the puck." While Larsson has no fantasy value in traditional leagues, he should be a mainstay of the Oilers blueline this season. Today, 3:23 am
  • Oliver Ekman-Larsson sits out practice
    Oliver Ekman-Larsson skated only briefly in practice Saturday.

    Advice: The Coyotes are taking their time with their top defenseman who had a minor procedure done over the summer. "It's something that's been nagging him for a number of years now," GM John Chayka said. Ekman-Larsson should be ready to go full out in the second half of training camp and be ready to start the season. He had a couple of 20 goal seasons earlier in his career, but look for 15 goals and 50-55 points this season if he can remain healthy. Draft him accordingly. Today, 2:35 am
