News: Jonathan Quick (illness) will be back in goal Monday vs. the Coyotes, Jon Rosen of LAKingsInsider.com reports. Analysis: Jonathan Quick was bypassed for Saturday's start against the Ducks after coming down with an illness Friday, but he looked to be healthy while participating at Sunday's practice and Monday's morning skate.

News: Cody McCormick will be a healthy scratch Monday against Boston, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Analysis: Justin Fontaine will play as a result after sitting out five games. While Cody McCormick doesn't have a point in five games since he was traded to the Wild, this is more likely giving him a day of rest rather than a demotion.
News: Coach Randy Carlyle said Dave Bolland (ankle) is week-to-week with his injury, TSN.ca reports. Analysis: Carlyle noted that Dave Bolland has made a little progress in his recovery during the team's road trip, but it doesn't appear as though he's particularly close to returning.

News: Jonathan Huberdeau (upper body) will not play Tuesday vs. the Sharks, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: The injury is the latest dose of bad news in what has been a dismal sophomore campaign for Jonathan Huberdeau.

News: Garrett Wilson was recalled from AHL San Antonio on Monday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: Garrett Wilson will be making his NHL debut Tuesday against the Sharks, replacing the injured Jonathan Huberdeau.

News: Brandon Saad (upper body) will not play Tuesday vs. the Flyers, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Analysis: The Blackhawks haven't offered much of a timetable for Brandon Saad beyond Tuesday's game, but coach Joel Quenneville previously indicated the injury wasn't overly serious.
