Player Notes

  • L. Bow plays final 20 minutes, stops 13 in W
    Landon Bow started the third period of Thursday’s preseason contest against Colorado and earned a 2-1 victory.

    Advice: Bow was in net to start the third period of the game, which was tied 1-1 heading into the final 20 minutes of regulation. The 24-year old netminder stopped all 13 shots that he faced and a Dallas goal with under five minutes remaining helped him earn the win. With Bishop and Khudobin already occupying the starting and backup goaltending roles in Dallas, Bow may only see NHL action in 2019-20 in the event of an injury. Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Markstrom gets W as Canucks dominate Edmonton
    Jacob Markstrom faced 27 shots and conceded only one goal in his preseason debut Thursday night, which ended with a 6-1 win against the Oilers.

    Advice: Markstrom allowed an early first period goal to Edmonton’s 22-year old center, Cooper Marody, however he closed the door the remainder of the game, stopping 26 shots and easily earning the win in a 6-1 decision. The 29-year old goaltender is entering the new season looking to build off of his first NHL campaign with a winning record, having gone 28-23-9 in 60 games with a 2.77 GAA, .912 save percentage and one shutout in 2018-19. Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Linus Ullmark leaves a good mark Tuesday
    Linus Ullmark played well in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Columbus in preseason action.

    Advice: Ullmark stopped 18 of 19 shots in the contest. "I thought Linus recovered well from that early goal against," coach Ralph Krueger said. "He gave us a chance and bought us time to find our legs and find our game. Linus definitely left a good mark today." The Sabres have a wide-open goalie situation, so Ullmark is competing with Carter Hutton to be the team's number one option going into the regular season. Wednesday, 7:01 am
  • Antti Raanta surrenders four goals Tuesday
    Antti Raanta allowed four goals in a 4-1 split-squad loss to Los Angeles on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's an early preseason game, so don't read too much into it, but is likely rusty after missing most of 2018-19. This was his first game since Nov. 27, 2018. "It's been a long time for 'Raants,' " Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. "I thought he made some good saves early. But he worked real hard this summer and we'll get him back in there again." Wednesday, 1:50 am
  • Robin Lehner makes preseason debut
    Robin Lehner allowed two goals on 17 shots in Tuesday's preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings.

    Advice: Lehner was making his preseason debut for his new organization, splitting time with Kevin Lankinen in between the pipes. Lankinen stopped 19 of the 21 shots he faced. Corey Crawford isn't exactly the picture of health, so Lehner should see plenty of action in the Windy City, especially after showing well on the Island last season. Treat Lehner as more of a No. 3 backstop in most fantasy pools with the potential to start a majority of the games. Tuesday, 10:25 pm
  • Garret Sparks turns aside 23 shots in win
    Garret Sparks stopped all 23 shots he faced in Tuesday's preseason victory against the Colorado Avalanche.

    Advice: Sparks, who saw a lot of action in Toronto last season with Frederik Andersen on the shelf for a while, needs either Marc-Andre Fleury or Malcolm Subban to go down with a long-term injury to see any time at the NHL level this season. However, he made quite a nice impression in his first game action in front of his new mates. Tuesday, 10:21 pm
  • Anton Forsberg makes Carolina debut
    Anton Forsberg entered Tuesday's preseason game at Tampa Bay midway through the second period in his team debut, stopping all seven shots he faced.

    Advice: All seven shots Forsberg faced were of the even-strength variety, and both newcomers Forsberg and James Reimer were sharp. "When we had our breakdowns, they were there. That's what you need in goalies," head coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "Both of them played really well." Forsberg is expected to start the season at Charlotte of the AHL, working with Alex Nedeljkovic, providing organizational depth behind Petr Mrazek and James Reimer. Tuesday, 9:27 pm
  • James Reimer sharp in his team debut
    James Reimer faced just eight shots in 33 minutes during Tuesday's preseason game at Tampa Bay, but he stopped all of the rubber he faced.

    Advice: Reimer slides into the role of Curtis McElhinney from last season. The Hurricanes don't really have a No. 1 netminder, as it's more of a hot-hand situation. Petr Mrazek is the incumbent, and believed to be the No. 1 goaltender for now, but if Optimus Reim can get hot and stay hot he could carve himself out a strong role and potential timeshare in Raleigh. He is off to a strong start for his new club. Tuesday, 9:23 pm
  • Anders Nilsson stops all 13 shots he faces
    Anders Nilsson turned aside all 13 of the shots he faced in Tuesday's preseason game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Advice: Nilsson was sharp once he was dealt from the Vancouver Canucks to the Sens last season, posting a 2.90 goals-against average and .914 save percentage in Canada's capital city. He'll be tasked with serving as the understudy to Craig Anderson, who is getting a little long in the tooth and might need more frequent breaks in 2019-20. Still, Nilsson is only worth a look in daily fantasy pools as well as DFS play when the matchup is favorable. The Sens will take a lot of losses even when their goalies are at their best. Tuesday, 8:37 pm
  • Flames return three players to junior teams
    Dustin Wolf has been returned to Everett of the WHL.

    Advice: Calgary also sent Milos Roman (Vancouver) and Dmitry Zavgorodniy (Rimouski) back to their respective CHL teams. The Flames currently have 54 players remaining at training camp. Tuesday, 1:41 pm

  • Cam Talbot allowed 3 goals on 9 shots vs VAN
    Cam Talbot allowed 3 goals on 9 shots in relief in Monday's 3-2 OT preseason loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: David Rittich started in net for Calgary and made four saves on four shots. Rittich played just above 32 minutes before Talbot came in. This was Talbot's first time suiting up as a member of the Flames organization. Monday, 9:27 pm
  • Eric Comrie allowed 2 goals on 33 shots.
    Eric Comrie allowed 2 goals on 33 shots in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

    Advice: Comrie finished the game with a save percentage of .939 and played the entire 60 minutes. Last season Comrie only made one start for the Winnipeg Jets. He has played 5 total games for the Jets thus far. Monday, 8:57 pm
  • Bishop drops exhibition decision vs. STL
    Ben Bishop allowed one goal on 17 shots in Monday's 2-0 exhibition loss to the St. Louis Blues.

    Advice: Bishop played for just under 34 minutes in this first preseason game. He's coming off a season in which he was a Vezina Trophy nominee and he'll have to play at a high level again if the Stars are going to be serious contenders in the Western Conference. Bishop will be a solid number one goalie option in standard fantasy leagues. Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Sam Montembeault allows 1 goal in loss to NSH
    Sam Montembeault turned aside 18 of 19 shots in Monday's 1-0 preseason loss to the Nashville Predators.

    Advice: Montembeault allowed a goal to Laurent Dauphin early in the first period, but he managed to keep the Preds off the board for the remainder of his outing. He lasted 31 minutes before coming out of the game. There's a very good chance Montembeault will serve as Sergei Bobrovsky's backup goalie this year. Monday, 7:51 pm
  • Kyle Keyser makes 17 stops in preseason game
    Kyle Keyser stopped all 17 shots he faced in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils.

    Advice: Keyser played 31 minutes in this game before coming out for teammate Dan Vladar. The undrafted free-agent will spend the season in the minors this year, but having a good preseason will be important for him considering the competition he'll have in AHL Providence this season. Don't expect him to make a dent at the NHL level in the next few years. Monday, 7:01 pm
  • Brandon Halverson with Leafs on PTO
    Brandon Halverson is still with the Maple Leafs at training camp on a PTO.

    Advice: Michal Neuvirth, who is also at Toronto's camp on a PTO, is dealing an undisclosed injury, so Halverson is getting a longer look. He has been working with Michael Hutchinson in one of Toronto's two groups during practices. Monday, 11:18 am
  • Michal Neuvirth suffers injury at camp
    Michal Neuvirth sustained an undisclosed injury over the weekend during training camp.

    Advice: "He wasn’t feeling good body-wise [on Sunday], and we kept him off today," coach Mike Babcock said on Monday. "Obviously it’s not ideal for him. If he wants to battle for a job, he’s got to be in a position to do that. But he’s also got to be healthy." Neuvirth joined the Leafs on a PTO after he was limited to seven appearances last season. He has a long history of injury problems, but was hoping to put those behind to compete for the Toronto's backup goalie job. It's unclear at this time if his latest ailment will prevent that from happening, as a timetable for his return is uncertain. Monday, 11:14 am
  • Keith Kinkaid ready to do whatever is needed
    Keith Kinkaid is good with playing the backup role as a member of the Canadiens after he started the majority of New Jersey's games last year.

    Advice: "Whatever they need me for, I’m here to be a part of the team," Kinkaid said. "I just want to be the best I can on and off the ice. Work hard and give this team a chance to make the playoffs." Montreal coach Claude Julien didn't have any confidence in the team's backup goaltending last season and the team hopes that Kinkaid can do a better job supporting Carey Price. Monday, 7:22 am
  • Igor Sheserkin to start in AHL
    Russian goaltender Igor Shesterkin is likely to start the season in the minors.

    Advice: The Rangers likely goaltender of the future will get his feet wet in the AHL as he adapts to life in North America. He was a fourth round pick in 2014 and was absolutely amazing in the KHL last season with a 24-4 record to go with a 1.11 GAA and a .953 save percentage. Monday, 6:47 am
  • Dylan Ferguson misses game with illness
    Dylan Ferguson was expected to start for Vegas Sunday but sat out due to an illness.

    Advice: Ferguson was the winning goalie in the first game of pre-season in each of the Golden Knights first two seasons but not on Sunday. He is slated once again for the minors. Monday, 5:49 am
