Player Notes

  • Werenski (illness) is questionable Thursday
    Zach Werenski (illness) is a game-time decision on Thursday.

    Advice: Werenski played on Tuesday, but then missed Wednesday's practice due to the sickness. He has six goals and 26 points in 43 contests this season. Today, 1:51 pm
  • V. Hedman (illness) will miss Thursday's game
    Victor Hedman (illness) won't return on Thursday.

    Advice: Hedman is going to miss his third straight game. He has seven goals and 38 points in 44 contests this season. Today, 1:20 pm
  • Andrey Pedan heads to the AHL
    Andrey Pedan has been sent to the minors.

    Advice: Pedan didn't end up playing for Vancouver during his latest NHL stint. He has three points and 32 penalty minutes in 22 AHL contests in 2016-17. Today, 11:56 am
  • Vancouver calls up defenseman Jordan Subban
    Jordan Subban has been summoned by the Vancouver Canucks.

    Advice: Subban was taken with the 115th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He's got enough offensive upside to make him worth keeping an eye on though, as demonstrated by his 22 points in 34 AHL contests this season. Today, 11:55 am
    Not Active
  • John Carlson (LBI) won't play on Thursday
    John Carlson (lower body) has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

    Advice: Carlson probably won't play on Saturday either, but there's still a chance. He has five goals and 25 points in 43 contests this season. Today, 11:01 am
  • Brendan Smith (knee) practices Thursday
    Brendan Smith (knee) took part in Thursday's practice.

    Advice: It was the first time Smith practiced with the Wings since Jan. 4. Based on an early projection, he's probably still at least a week away from returning, but there's always a chance he'll be back sooner. Today, 10:49 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Johnny Boychuk (UBI) won't play on Thursday
    Johnny Boychuk is dealing with an upper-body injury.

    Advice: Boychuk also missed Saturday's contest due to an upper-body injury, though that might not be related. Either way, Scott Mayfield will play instead of Boychuk on Thursday. Today, 10:38 am
  • John Moore (concussion) starts skating
    John Moore (concussion) took to the ice on Thursday.

    Advice: It was Moore's first skate since he was hurt on Dec. 21. He has five goals and 13 points in 37 contests in 2016-17. Today, 10:10 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Andrei Markov will stay off the ice for now
    Andrei Markov (groin) hasn't been seeing improvement lately and he will consequently stop skating.

    Advice: The hope is that taking a step back will help him recover. At this stage he's also regarded as week-to-week. He last played on Dec. 17. Today, 10:05 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Johnny Oduya out with ankle re-injury
    Johnny Oduya aggravated an ankle injury Tuesday against the New York Rangers.

    Advice: The injury will keep him out against the Islanders on Thursday night. Oduya missed 10 games from Nov. 21-Dec. 10 with the same injury. Jordie Benn is slated to step into the lineup in Oduya's place. It is also projected that Stephen Johns and/or Patrik Nemeth could see additional minutes during Oduya's absence. Today, 6:28 am
  • Adam McQuaid notches 1G, 1A vs. Detroit
    Adam McQuaid contributed a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Detroit.

    Advice: His first goal of the season gave Boston a 5-4 lead going into the third after the Bruins blew a 4-1 advantage. McQuaid has three points and 47 penalty minutes in 43 games this season. Today, 5:07 am
  • Olli Maatta scores first goal of 2016-17
    Olli Maatta scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens.

    Advice: It was also his first goal since February of last year. Maatta's marker was the final nail in Montreal's coffin, as he made it 4-1 with under five minutes remaining in the game. The Pens defenseman logged just over 22 minutes of ice time in this one. He now has six points in 42 games this season. Ian Cole, Eric Fehr and Jake Guentzel also found the back of the net for the Penguins. Yesterday, 7:48 pm
  • Kevin Connauton Scratched Wednesday
    Kevin Connauton will be sitting in the press box Wednesday night when the Arizona Coyotes visit the Winnipeg Jets.

    Advice: Connauton has appeared in a meager 11 games in 2016-17, odd considering he can move the puck as a lower pairing defenseman. This will make his fourth straight scratch, surpassing that point already four times this season. Laurent Dauphin will be in the press box as a scratch as well. Yesterday, 4:34 pm
  • Morgan Rielly upbeat after suffering LBI
    The outlook on Morgan Rielly's lower-body injury appears to be positive.

    Advice: "Right now, it's day-to-day so that's good news," Rielly said Wednesday. "Whenever you go down awkwardly and you don't really know what happened you get a bit concerned. The way it looks [on replay] is the way it felt. I'm happy that I'm walking around and everything and I'm feeling better than I was yesterday." He won't play on Thursday night with what is believed to be an ankle issue. Rielly is day-to-day with no set timetable for now. Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Roman Josi (UBI) not on road trip
    Roman Josi (upper body) isn't with Nashville on their current road trip.

    Advice: His chances of playing Thursday and Friday in Alberta as well as Sunday at Minnesota are doubtful as a result. Josi hasn't played since Jan. 12 because of an upper-body injury. Yesterday, 11:25 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Frank Corrado will play Thursday night
    Frank Corrado will be in the lineup on Thursday.

    Advice: He will get a chance to play because of an injury to Morgan Rielly. Corrado is projected to be paired with Connor Carrick in his second NHL appearance of the season. Yesterday, 9:32 am
  • Tyson Barrie has 10 points in 10 games
    Tyson Barrie picked up two helpers in a 6-4 loss to Chicago on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Barrie has amassed 10 of his 23 points in the past 10 outings. Now, he just needs to get back to scoring goals again. Barrie has three markers on 105 shots this year. Yesterday, 8:23 am
  • Greg Pateryn (ankle) gets on the ice Tuesday
    Greg Pateryn (ankle) skated on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was his first on-ice session since he suffered a fractured ankle on Dec. 6. Pateryn was slated to miss eight weeks, so a return in February remains on target. Yesterday, 7:24 am
    Injured Reserve
  • Calgary hasn't been using Brett Kulak
    Despite calling Brett Kulak up on Jan. 9, the Calgary Flames haven't used him during this NHL stint.

    Advice: Kulak last got into a game with the Flames on Nov. 27. "He’s going to have to wait his turn," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan. "We’ve got competition now for guys — they have to play a certain level to get in. He’s come back up, he’s looked real good in practice and when we get into a busier part of the schedule or if there’s some slippage in some other players, they’ve gotta be ready." Assuming Kulak stays with the Flames long enough, they are scheduled to play in three road games over four days from Jan. 23-26, so perhaps he'll get some work in then. Yesterday, 1:41 am
  • Korbinian Holzer returned to action on Tuesday January 17. Tuesday, 10:52 pm
