Player Notes

  • Gaudet, Connauton out vs Flames on Thursday
    Tyler Gaudet and Kevin Connauton will be scratched from Thursday's match with the Flames.

    Advice: Through three games thus far the talented forward Gaudet is still searching for his first point. He has just three points in 19 games so far in his career, so we'd wait on the proverbial click. 27 minutes ago
  • Eric Gelinas out vs Bruins on Thursday
    Eric Gelinas will be scratched against the Bruins on Thurday.

    Advice: Though already having played twice this month, Gelinas has seen just nine games of action. Which suggests he doesn't have much of a role with the team. Today, 3:54 pm
  • Avalanche scratched Goloubef vs Bruins
    The Avalanche will scratch Cody Goloubef against the Bruins on Thursday.

    Advice: Through 97 career NHL games the 27-year-old has posted just 18 points, none of which however came during his Avalanche debut. Today, 3:39 pm
  • Isles get Johnny Boychuk back vs Blues
    The Islanders will get Johnny Boychuk back against the Blues on Thursday.

    Advice: The veteran defender has posted four goals and nine points this season with 54 blocks and 56 hits in 24 games this season. Get him back in your lineup. Today, 3:31 pm
  • Slepyshev, Musil, Pitlick out vs Flyers
    Anton Slepyshev, Tyler Pitlick and David Musil will each be scratched against the Flyers on Thursday.

    Advice: Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value between the three of them. Musil is up as a warm body, while Slepyshev and Pitlick have posted just eight goals and 11 points in 40 combined games thus far. Today, 3:26 pm
  • No Vesey for Rangers vs Jets on Thursday
    Jimmy Vesey has been sideline with an upper body injury and will not play Thursday against the Jets.

    Advice: Thus ends his illustrious 27-game playing streak dating back to his NHL debut. Okay, it's not quite that dramatic. But this is his first game out. He was seen riding the bike however, so perhaps the injury is not in his hands, wrists or arms. Today, 3:22 pm
  • Hutchinson to face the Rangers on Thursday
    Michael Hutchinson will face the Rangers on Thursday night

    Advice: It's been a tough season for Hutchinson, but especially so against Eastern foes. He's gone 1-2-1 in five games with 15 goals against and an .874 save percentage this season. The Rangers are one of the game's best offenses, so we'd avoid this matchup if possible. Today, 3:04 pm
  • Confirmed, Matt Murray will face Florida
    It's confirmed, Matt Murray will indeed face Florida on Thursday.

    Advice: Murray has been rock solid for the Penguins thus far, going 8-2 with a 2.01 GAA and a .931 save percentage through 10 games. We'd feel mighty comfortable with him in net tonight. Today, 2:57 pm
  • Erik Burgdoerfer heads back to the minors
    Erik Burgdoerfer has been returned to AHL Rochester.

    Advice: Burgdoerfer got a chance to play in his first two NHL games during his recent call up. He had two shots on goal and a minus-one rating while averaging 11:10 minutes of ice time. In the AHL he has seven assists in 22 contests this season. Today, 2:10 pm

  • Joe Pavelski registers an assist Wednesday
    Joe Pavelski had an assist in San Jose's 4-2 loss to Ottawa Wednesday night.

  • Jay McClement nets his first goal of 2016-17
    Jay McClement found the back of the net in Carolina's 6-5 loss Wednesday night.

    Advice: It was McClement's first goal and second point in 26 games this season. He only surpassed the 20-point mark once in his previous three campaigns. Today, 7:54 am
  • Ehlers earns points despite goal drought
    Nikolaj Ehlers hasn't scored a goal in 14 straight games.

    Advice: "I'm still scoring points, we're winning games -- it's not a big deal for me," Ehlers said. "So I'm not too worried. But I wouldn't mind that one goes in soon." He has provided 11 assists during his goal drought. Ehlers has four goals in 29 games this campaign, but he has a team-leading 19 helpers to give him 23 points. Today, 6:46 am
  • Jason Zucker scores in win against Leafs
    Jason Zucker scored his fourth goal of 2016-17 in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Toronto.

    Advice: He opened the scoring before the midway point of the first period. Zucker has scored two goals and five assists in the last seven games. His five-game point streak was snapped Sunday against Edmonton. Today, 6:24 am
  • Francois Beauchemin (hand) skips practice
    Francois Beauchemin didn't practice Wednesday due to a minor hand injury.

    Advice: He still could be available to play against Boston on Thursday. Beauchemin's status will probably be determined following the morning skate. Today, 6:17 am
  • Ben Smith ends 11-game pointless drought
    Ben Smith scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Minnesota.

    Advice: Smith didn't have a point in his previous 11 contests. He has posted three points in 23 appearances this year. Today, 6:04 am
  • Cam Ward has .868 percentage in loss to Ducks
    Cam Ward had a save percentage of only .838 as the Carolina Hurricanes lost 6-5 in a shootout overtime against the Anaheim Ducks Wednesday night.

    Advice: Ward got his workout, however; he faced 38 shots including four in overtime before letting two pucks slip past in the shootout. Ward has now lost five of his last six games. This streak was interrupted only momentarily by a shutout over the Lightning on Sunday. Most of Ward’s losses have been in low scoring affairs and this five-goal effort against him should be viewed as an anomaly. Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Ondrej Kase wins for Ducks in SO
    Ondrej Kase slipped one past Cam Ward in the fourth round of a shootout to hand the Anaheim Ducks a 6-5 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday night.

    Advice: Kase also had an assist Wednesday night on a goal by Stefan Noesen. It was Kase’s third assist of the season and Noesen’s first goal. Kase has only four points for the season and was not on many radar screens, but he was certainly more popular than Noesen who made only his third career start. In just 7:41 minutes of ice time, he scored his first career goal in the NHL. Yesterday, 10:38 pm
