News: Ryan Stanton (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve. Analysis: The injury will be retroactive to Oct. 17, keeping Ryan Stanton out for at least the next three games. Frank Corrado was recalled from AHL Utica over the weekend to replenish Vancouver's depth on defense.
News: Ryan Miller will be in the net Tuesday versus the Stars, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports. Analysis: Ryan Miller received his first rest of the season in the Canucks' previous game against the Lightning on Saturday, will backup Eddie Lack taking the loss in his stead. The 34-year-old Miller figures to be rested later in the week when the Canucks play another back-to-back set, but the three-year, $18 million contract he signed in the offseason ensures he'll see a large workload this season. He's been generally excellent in his first three turns with the Canucks, winning all of his starts and posting a 1.95 GAA and .927 save percentage.
News: Ondrej Pavelec will get the starting nod Tuesday versus the Hurricanes, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Analysis: Ondrej Pavelec's been the recipient of some poor offensive support by his mates to saddle him with a 1-3-0 record, but his 2.61 GAA and .906 save percentage through five games aren't world-beating, by any means. Just as was predicted heading into the season, Pavelec looks like one of the league's weakest starting netminders, though he should be a fine fantasy play Tuesday against Carolina, the NHL's only winless team.
News: Radko Gudas (lower body) is doubtful to play Tuesday versus the Flames, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Analysis: Radko Gudas was generally expected to return to action in time for Monday's tilt with the Oilers, but he hasn't quite progressed as quickly as the Bolts had anticipated. While a long-term absence looks to be off the table for the blueliner, he'll still head off to the press box for his fourth consecutive contest.
News: Jonathan Drouin (thumb) turned in a quiet outing in his NHL debut Monday against the Oilers, attempting one shot on goal and finishing with a minus-1 rating over 16:10 of ice time. Analysis: Jonathan Drouin was activated from his rehab assignment at AHL Syracuse on Sunday, but was expected to sit out Monday's game, until an injury to Alex Killorn (undisclosed) ushered the youngster into the lineup. With both Killorn and Ryan Callahan (upper body) doubtful to play Tuesday versus the Flames, Drouin will slot into the Bolts' top-six forwards for a second straight game. It shouldn't take long for the much-hyped Drouin to cement himself as a mainstay on the top two lines and the team's power play.
News: Alex Killorn (undisclosed) appears to be feeling better Tuesday, but he still looks likely to miss his second consecutive game against the Flames, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper indicated a day earlier that Alex Killorn would need a "miraculous recovery" in order to suit up Tuesday, so despite his apparent progress, his chances of suiting up against the Flames would appear doubtful. Because the Bolts didn't hold a morning skate Tuesday, Killorn's official status for the game likely won't be known until warmups.
News: Ryan Callahan (lower body) appears unlikely to play Tuesday versus the Flames, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports. Analysis: Coach Jon Cooper said on Monday that both Ryan Callahan and Alex Killorn (undisclosed) would need miraculous recoveries in order to return to play Tuesday, leaving serious doubt about the availability of both players. The Bolts declined to hold a morning skate Tuesday, so Callahan's status likely won't be officially known until pregame warmups.
News: Josh Jooris (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, Sportsnet's Pat Steinberg reports. Analysis: Josh Jooris missed only one game due to the lower-body injury, which he suffered during his NHL debut Friday. The ailment aside, Jooris enjoyed a productive first game with the Flames, contributing a goal in over 15 minutes of action. Now that it's healthy, it looks like Jooris will receive the opportunity to solidify himself as the Flames' top-line right winger.
News: Deryk Engelland (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Lightning, Sportsnet's Pat Steinberg reports. Analysis: Deryk Engelland was held out for the previous three games with a lower-body injury. The blueliner has racked up 13 penalty minutes in the four games in which he's played this season, and even though he's now healthy, Engelland won't be guaranteed a regular spot in the lineup. Look for him and Raphael Diaz to share a role as the club's sixth defenseman.
News: Matt Cullen (lower body) isn't expected to return Tuesday against the Coyotes, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports. Analysis: Matt Cullen resumed practicing last week and is being labeled as day-to-day by the Predators at this stage, but he wasn't a part of the team's line rushes at Tuesday's morning skate, signaling that he won't be making his return. He could be ready to go in time for the Preds' next game, scheduled for Thursday versus the Blackhawks.
