  • van Riemsdyk, Rozsival out vs Jets on Sunday
    Trevor van Riemsdyk and Michal Rozsival were scratched from Sunday's match against the Jets.

    Advice: van Riesdyk is still working his way back from an upper body injury, so it may be a bit before he officially hits the ice in a game. When he does, it'll be his third of the season. Yesterday, 4:03 pm
  • Markov lifts scoring streak to four games
    Andrei Markov is now riding a tidy four-game point streak thanks to the goal he scored in Sunday's 5-4 shootout win over the Kings.

    Advice: Markov, who also has points in four of his last five games, is up to six goals and 11 points in 25 games so far this season. Doesn't quite seem over the hill, does he. Yesterday, 3:57 pm
  • Doughty now with points in three of last five
    Drew Doughty now has points in three of his last five games.

    Advice: Thanks the goal and assist he netted during Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal, that is. The reigning Norris Trophy winner is up to four goals and 13 points in 25 games thus far. Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • No Garrison, Nesterov scratched vs Carolina
    Jason Garisson and Nikita Nesterov will be scratched from Sunday's match against Carolina.

    Advice: Garisson will miss his second straight with a lower body injury. Nesterov continues to be in and out of the lineup, meanwhile. Neither boast much fantasy value, unfortunately. Yesterday, 2:06 pm
  • Schultz, Laughton out vs Predators on Sunday
    Nick Schultz and Scott Laughton will be scratched against the Predators on Sunday.

    Advice: This will be Schultz's 12th straight game as a healthy scratch, which does not bode well for his future with the team. Laughton has just two games to his credit with the Flyers this season. Yesterday, 1:14 pm
  • No Radko Gudas Sunday vs Predators
    Radko Gudas (illness) is not yet healthy enough to return to action on Sunday.

    Advice: Through 19 games thus far he has six helpers and seven points along with 21 PIMs, 50 blocks, and 82 hits. Consider him day-to-day. Yesterday, 1:11 pm
  • Redmond, Carr scratched vs Kings on Sunday
    Zach Redmond and Daniel Carr will watch Sunday's match with the Kings from the press box.

    Advice: Redmond has yet to make his season debut, and continues to bide his time. Carr meanwhile has posted just two points in 11 games. Neither boast any fantasy value unfortunately. Yesterday, 11:16 am
  • Anthony DeAngelo returned to AHL Tucson
    The Arizona Coyotes returned Anthony DeAngelo to AHL Tuscon on Sunday.

    Advice: It was an impressive first run through the NHL for the 21-year-old, who posted two goals and six points through 10 games. Keep an eye on him, this is not the last we've seen of the talented blue liner. Yesterday, 10:37 am
    Not Active
  • Taylor Fedun 'questionable' for Monday
    Coach Dan Bylsma labeled Taylor Fedun as "questionable" for Monday's match with Washington.

    Advice: The 28-year-old defender has four points in eight games this season with five blocks to his credit as well. If you see that they've called up another defender, take it as your sign. Yesterday, 9:54 am
  • Sabres lose Josh Gorges for 'weeks'
    Josh Gorges will miss "weeks" due to a non-displaced fracture in his foot, coach Dan Bylsma said on Sunday.

    Advice: Ouch. The rugged veteran defender had been averaging 19:27 of ice time per night through the first 23 games of the season. He's posted one point with 23 PIMs, 43 blocks and 53 hits thus far. Yesterday, 9:51 am
  • Erik Johnson out 6-8 weeks broken leg
    Erik Johnson will be lost to the Avlanache for 6-8 weeks with a broken fibula.

    Advice: He broke his leg in the second period of Saturday night's 3-0 loss to Dallas. This is a big blow to the Avalanche as the team had been reeling on defense even before Johnson's injury. We suggest you look for a permanent replacemet for Johnson without delay. Yesterday, 9:40 am
  • Englund a hit in first NHL game
    Anreas Englund was a hit in his first NHL game Saturday night against Florida.

    Advice: A hit because he dished out a team-high seven hits in only 9;49 of ice time. That's a pretty impressive total for the youngster. If your pool counts hits as a stat, you may want to keep an eye on Englund. Yesterday, 8:09 am
  • Ekblad OK after geting face stitched up
    Aaron Ekblad needed a few stiches to deal with a gash below his right eye sustained in Saturday night's loss to Ottawa.

    Advice: He left the game in the first period for the repairs but returned to finish the contest. Ekblad should be just fine for Florida's next game Monday against Boston. Yesterday, 7:32 am
  • Kulikov nearing a return to practice
    Dmitry Kulikov is nearing a return to practice.

    Advice: The Sabres' defenseman, who has been out of action since November 9th with a back injury, has skated the last few days with some contact and seems to be progressing in his recovery. "Kulikov has now skated two days with some physicality and now been skating for seven days," Buffalo coach Dan Bylsma said. "Hopefully, that means we’ll see him in practice soon – in the next week hopefully." We'll keep you updated on Kulikov's stauts. Yesterday, 6:51 am
  • Bogosian still 10-14 days from a return
    Zach Bogosian is still 10-14 days away from returning to action.

    Advice: Bogosian is still recovering from a sprained MCL and needs more time to strengthen his knee. The oft-injured Bogosian is a useful fantasy defenseman when he is healthy. Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. Yesterday, 6:38 am
  • Ivan Provorov shows the Blackhawks
    Ivan Provorov showed the Blackhawks how good he really is on Saturday.

    Advice: Provorov scored twice to lead the Flyers to the win after going minus-five earlier this season in Chicago when the two teams first met. "This was a little bit better," Provorov said. "The last game, I had a few bad bounces. I didn't play my best at that game. But I put it behind me and learned from it. This was a better result." Provorov scored twice in 31 seconds and now has three goals and 11 points in 26 games. He is a keeper. Yesterday, 5:51 am
  • Eric Gelinas was called up from the minors on Saturday December 3. Yesterday, 12:01 am
  • Pietrangelo gets two assists in loss to Jets
    Alex Pietrangelo had an assist on both St Louis Blues goals as they lost a 3-2 decision in overtime to the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night.

    Advice: Pietrangelo’s assists were to Alexander Steen at the 5:16 minute mark and Dmitrij Jaskin’s at 7:26. This lifts him to nine assists for the season and 14 points—decent marks for a defenseman. Pietrangelo has scored points in four of his last five games. Saturday, 9:22 pm
  • Oilers recall Dillon Simpson from AHL
    Dillon Simpson is on his way back up to the big club on Saturday.

    Advice: Simpson has been summoned in the wake of the Oilers losing Darnell Nurse to a long-term lower body injury. The 23-year-old has yet to make his NHL debut. He does however have one goal and eight PIMs in 12 games with Bakersfield to his credit this season. Saturday, 12:36 pm
