Player Notes

  • Could be back for season finale
    Coleman (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Vancouver, but coach Ryan Huska is hopeful the 32-year-old forward will be able to return for Thursday's season finale against the Sharks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Advice: The Flames have already been eliminated from the playoffs, but Coleman will nonetheless hope to get one more game in before the 2023-24 season comes to an end. He's racked up 29 goals and 52 points through 77 contests this season. Today, 10:58 am
  • Back with team
    Gaudreau (personal) took part in Monday's game-day skate and should be available versus the Kings, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Gaudreau will be back in action following a two-game stint on the sidelines while attending to a personal matter. The 30-year-old forward has scored just once in his last 16 outings while chipping in just two helpers. Even with Mats Zuccarello (personal) still in doubt, Gaudreau is unlikely to see anything more than a bottom-six role for the Wild's last two games. Today, 10:39 am
  • Not playing Monday
    Kastelic (upper body) won't play Monday against the Rangers, per Gord Wilson of TSN 1200 Ottawa.

    Advice: Kastelic will miss at least one game after being struck in the head by the puck in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over Montreal. It's unclear at this time if he will be available for Tuesday's season finale versus Boston. Zack Ostapchuk, who was recalled from AHL Belleville on Monday, could play against the Rangers due to Kastelic's absence. Today, 10:28 am
  • Playing Monday
    McDavid (lower body) will be in action versus the Sharks on Monday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: McDavid will return from a three-game absence due to his lower-body issue. The world-class center has registered a multipoint effort in nine of his last 11 contests, racking up a combined six goals and 18 assists over that stretch. If the Oilers can't catch the Canucks for the top spot in the Pacific, the team could decide to rest McDavid for one of the upcoming back-to-back contests against the Coyotes on Wednesday or the Avalanche on Thursday. Today, 10:00 am
  • In doubt for playoff opener
    Jarnkrok (hand) may not be ready for Game 1 of the postseason. Coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters Monday, "Still to be determined, but I think he's more in a day-to-day situation. Unfortunately we're running out of schedule here," per Mark Masters of TSN.

    Advice: Jarnkrok is going to travel with the team but won't suit up for the final two games of the regular season. As such, he'll finish the year having played in just 52 games for the Leafs in which he earned 10 goals and 11 helpers. Still, even with his extended absence, Jarnkrok should be in contention for a bottom-six role once given the all-clear. Today, 9:48 am
  • Iffy against Toronto
    Barkov (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Tuesday's regular-season finale versus the Maple Leafs, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Advice: Barkov is evidently just dealing with some stiffness, so although there's a chance he'll miss Tuesday's regular-season finale, the 28-year-old pivot will almost certainly be ready for Game 1 of Florida's first-round playoff series. He's racked up 23 goals and 78 points through 72 contests this season. Today, 9:47 am
  • Out final two games
    McMann (lower body) won't be available for the Leafs' last two regular-season contests. Coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters Monday, "We've got a week here before we get going so we'll see where he's at as that approaches," per Mark Masters of TSN.

    Advice: Based on the coach's comments, McMann could be a doubt for Game 1 of the postseason as well. Without the winger in the lineup, Matthew Knies has been elevated to a top-six role. In his rookie campaign, McMann put up decent numbers with 15 goals on 118 shots, nine assists and 117 hits while averaging 11:34 of ice time. Today, 9:44 am
  • Likely to miss final two games
    Domi (undisclosed) is expected to miss the final two games of the regular season, according to David Alter of The Hockey News.

    Advice: Domi won't play Tuesday against Florida and is unlikely to be in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus Tampa Bay. He played through an injury in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to Detroit, so Toronto is probably just being cautious with the 29-year-old forward before the start of the playoffs. Domi has one goal and 11 assists over his last 13 outings to give him 47 points in 80 contests this campaign. Today, 9:42 am
  • Set to play Monday
    Sissons (rest) is expected to play Monday against Pittsburgh, according to Zach Gilchriest of the Predators' official site.

    Advice: Sissons is poised to return to the lineup after sitting out Saturday's 6-4 win over Columbus for roster management purposes. He has supplied 15 goals, 35 points, 127 shots on net in 80 contests this campaign. Today, 9:25 am
