NHL 320 ((Getty Images))

Player News
Justin Schultz
Oilers' Schultz A Healthy Scratch Thursday
Justin Schultz, D, EDM
10:31 AM
News: Justin Schultz will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Predators. "Justin has struggled a little bit as of late and we felt it was best to hit the reset button," coach Dallas Eakins said.
Analysis: Justin Schultz has seen his ice time drop to 16:30 and 15:13 in each of the last two games due to poor performance on his own end, a far cry from the 22 minutes he's averaging for the season. His banishment to the press box is only expected to be a one-game appointment, but it's certainly not a promising sign for the third-year blueliner. Oscar Klefbom will enter the lineup in his place Thursday.

Jiri Tlusty
Offense Sputtering For Canes' Tlusty
Jiri Tlusty, LW, CAR
10:27 AM
News: Jiri Tlusty was held off the scoreboard for the third straight game during Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the Panthers. He recorded just a single shot on goal and saw just 15:53 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Jiri Tlusty's season got off to a great start with a hat trick in his second game back on Oct. 11, but he's been mostly quiet since then, with just six points in his last 19 games. For now, Tlusty continues to spend most of his time on the top line with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin, however we wouldn't be surprised if he was shifted to a lower line at some point, or sat out as a healthy scratch. Overall, his value as a reliable fantasy option is in rapid decline - avoid using him if you can.

Tom Sestito
Canucks' Sestito Skates Thursday
Tom Sestito, LW, VAN
10:26 AM
News: Tom Sestito (lower body) was able to skate on his own at the end of Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Tom Sestito is traveling with the Canucks on their seven-game road trip that kicks off Friday in Columbus, seemingly indicating that the team hopes to have him available at some point. Since the fourth-line tough guy has missed over three weeks with the injury, he'll have to get in several practices before having a shot at rejoining the lineup.

Pekka Rinne
Preds' Rinne To Get Start Thursday
Pekka Rinne, G, NSH
10:24 AM
News: Pekka Rinne will receive the start in goal Thursday against the Oilers, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: The matchup is about as cushy as it gets for Pekka Rinne, as the Oilers have dropped seven games in a row to tie the Sabres for the league's worst record. Rinne has been steamrolling just about every opponent this season, so expect him to have little trouble dispatching the feeble Oilers on his own ice.

Viktor Fasth
Oilers Going With Fasth On Thanksgiving
Viktor Fasth, G, EDM
10:22 AM
News: Viktor Fasth will be between the pipes Thursday against the Predators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Viktor Fasth has only marginally outperformed Ben Scrivens of late, but it will be enough for him to earn his third start in four games. He's still been an underachiever by and large this season, carrying a 2-5-1 record, 3.32 GAA and .893 save percentage. He'll have little chance at upsetting the Predators and Vezina Trophy candidate Pekka Rinne at their own arena.

Jason Akeson
Flyers Waive Akeson
Jason Akeson, C, PHI
10:04 AM
News: Jason Akeson was waived by the Flyers on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: Jason Akeson received the opportunity to compete for a top-six role with the Flyers in training camp, but was never able to gain much momentum in the job battle. Forced to settle for checking-line duties for most of the season, Akeson has predictably struggled to provide much offense, accumulating no points and seven shots on goal over 12 games. The Flyers will hope to sneak him back to AHL Lehigh Valley in an attempt to help him rediscover his scoring touch.

Devin Setoguchi
Flames' Setoguchi Clears Waivers
Devin Setoguchi, RW, CGY
10:01 AM
News: Devin Setoguchi cleared waivers Thursday, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Devin Setoguchi will now have to decide if he wants to report to AHL Adirondack or pursue an opportunity with another organization. Corban Knight is expected to be recalled by the Flames from Adirondack now that Setoguchi's roster spot has been vacated.

Zack Kassian
Canucks' Kassian Nursing Injury
Zack Kassian, RW, VAN
9:59 AM
News: Zack Kassian took a slash to the arm in Tuesday's win over the Devils and didn't travel with the team to Columbus in advance of Friday's game Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Friday's game will mark the start of a seven-game road trip for the Canucks, so the fact that Zack Kassian isn't traveling with the team wouldn't seem encouraging. It's possible he could rejoin the Canucks on the trip at some point if he's able to practice on his own back in Vancouver, but fantasy owners should prepare to be without his services for the next few games. The recent return to health by winger Alex Burrows lessens the Canucks' need to have Kassian available.

Carey Price
Habs' Price To Make Start Friday
Carey Price, G, MON
9:53 AM
News: Carey Price will be in the crease Friday against the Sabres.
Analysis: Carey Price will make the first turn for the Canadiens in a back-to-back set with the Sabres, but look for backup Dustin Tokarski to get the nod for the second game Saturday. Price will enter Friday's contest coming off his second shutout of the season, a dazzling 33-save effort to keep the rival Bruins off the board last Saturday.

Tyler Myers
Sabres' Myers Questionable To Play Friday
Tyler Myers, D, BUF
9:51 AM
News: Tyler Myers (undisclosed) is questionable to play Friday against the Canadiens, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: After he was a surprise scratch Wednesday with the injury, Tyler Myers was unable to practice Thursday morning. The team will reassess his condition following Friday's early skate before determining if he'll be fit to play. Andre Benoit would take Myers' spot in the lineup in the event he can't go.
