  • Oilers lose Darnell Nurse 'long-term' to LBI
    Darnell Nurse will be lost to the Oilers "long-term" due to a lower body injury.

    Advice: Well that's not good news. In his second full season in the bigs, the 21-year-old was blossoming well. Nurse posted five points along with 17 PIMs, 25 blocks, and 60 hits. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:37 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Forsling, Rozsival, Tootoo out vs Flyers
    Gustav Forsling, Michal Rozsival, and Jordin Tootoo will each be scratched from Saturday's match with the Flyers.

    Advice: Unfortunately there isn't a lick of fantasy value to speak of here. Forsling has four points with 11 hits in 21 games this season, while Rozsival and Tootoo haven't even that much to offer. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:08 am
  • Flyers scratch Nick Schultz for 11th straight
    The Flyers will scratch Nick Schultz for the 11th straight game.

    Advice: If he were sick or injured, he'd been on I/R long ago. This is just losing your role with the team. The veteran defender was having a nice season with three points in nine games up until the benching. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:48 am
  • Brendan Guhle makes NHL debut vs Bruins
    Brendan Guhle will indeed make his NHL debut Saturday against the Bruins.

    Advice: What were you doing at age 19? Guhle has limited professional experience thus far, posting a goal and four points in six games for AHL Rochester last season. He's been in the WHL this season, so it's an interesting leap for the youngster to take. He'll pair with Cody Franson to form Buffalo's second defensive unit. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:43 am
  • No Josh Gorges for Sabres vs Bruins on Sat
    Josh Gorges will miss Saturday's match with the Bruins due to an upper body injury.

    Advice: Tough break for the Sabres, who rely on Gorges to be one of their steadier defenders. Through 23 games he has one point with 23 PIMs, 43 blocks and 53 hits. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:40 am
  • Radko Gudas too sick to play Saturday
    Radko Gudas is too sick to play Saturday against Chicago.

    Advice: Tough break for the Flyers. Through 19 games thus far he has six helpers and seven points along with 21 PIMs, 50 blocks, and 82 hits. Quite beastly in the right setting. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am

  • Martin Marincin might play on Saturday
    Martin Marincin might be back in Toronto's lineup on Saturday night in Vancouver.

    Advice: The 24-year-old has played in just one of his team's last seven games (he's served as a healthy scratch in the rest). Either way, he won't have any fantasy value this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:24 am
  • Brent Burns nets his 10th goal of 2016-17
    Brent Burns scored a goal in the Sharks' 2-1 win over Montreal on Friday.

    Advice: Burns has found the back of the net in four of his last seven games. He has 10 goals and 22 points in 25 contests in 2016-17. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:02 am
  • Andrew MacDonald might be scratched Saturday
    Andrew MacDonald might be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

    Advice: That's because Brandon Manning has gotten the green light to return from a concussion. MacDonald has a goal and six points in 17 contests this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:52 am
  • Kevin Klein draws back into lineup
    Kevin Klein is expected to draw back into the lineup on Saturday after being a healthy scratch Thursday.

    Advice: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is hoping he'll see more urgency in Klein's game after being scratched. Adam Clendening will probably be taken out of the lineup to make room for Klein, though that wasn't confirmed. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:41 am
  • John-Michael Liles won't play on Saturday
    John-Michael Liles (concussion) won't play in Saturday's matinee against the Buffalo Sabres.

    Injured Reserve
  • Zdeno Chara 'close' to returning to lineup
    Zdeno Chara is close to returning to the Bruins lineup, according to head coach Claude Julien.

    Advice: "I think he’s getting pretty close," said Julien. "You see him in practice and things are going well for him. I think the term day-to-day is really fitting right now. To be honest with you (there are) times when (we) say day-to-day and we don’t know whether it’s two days, three days or a week. With his case, I would say day-to-day is really day-to-day." The Bruins are 2-2-1 in Chara's absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:33 am
    Day-to-Day
  • Ryan Suter picks up an assist in SO loss
    Ryan Suter picked up an assist in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Calgary Flames on Friday.

    Advice: It was a typical Suter night in Calgary, doing a bit of everything and always looking one step ahead of his opponents. He logged just over 28 minutes in the contest, recorded an assist, finished a plus-2, and had one shot on goal. With 16 points in 23 games this season, he is quietly on pace for a career year in Minnesota. It will be interesting to see how the rest of his year plays out offensively considering he has eclipsed 50 points only once in his entire career (2015-16). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Eric Gelinas isn't claimed on waivers
    Eric Gelinas went unclaimed on waivers.

    Advice: Gelinas has an assist in seven games this season. It's not surprising he cleared given his $1,575,000 cap hit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 am
  • Fredrik Claesson (LBI) is on the IR list
    Fredrik Claesson (lower body) is on the injured reserve list.

    Advice: Claesson has missed nine straight games, so he can be activated whenever he's healthy given that this move is presumably retroactive. He has no points in seven games this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Ryan Ellis (UBI) skates Thursday
    Ryan Ellis (upper body) took part in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: He is listed as day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Ellis has missed three games and remains on injured reserve. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:02 am
