Player News
Nathan MacKinnon
Avs' MacKinnon Dishes Out Two Assists
Nathan MacKinnon, C, COL
12:53 PM
News: Nathan MacKinnon dished out a pair of helpers in Friday's win over Nashville.
Analysis: The two points snapped a three-game scoring drought for Nathan MacKinnon, who now has nine goals and 29 points in 50 games. While he's been held off the scoresheet in seven of his last nine games, the Avs are playing good hockey right now, picking up at least one point in six of their last seven games. MacKinnon's only 19, so we wouldn't give up on him just yet this season. His whopping 152 shots on goal indicate more goals are on the way. Patience is a virtue.

Mike Ribeiro
Preds' Ribeiro Piles On PIM
Mike Ribeiro, C, NSH
12:39 PM
News: Mike Ribeiro took a break from scoring Friday, racking up 22 PIM in a loss to Colorado.
Analysis: While Mike Ribeiro has 43 points (33 assists) in 48 games this season, he is also now among the league's top-100 PIM leaders. Producing at basically a point-per-game pace and sporting a steady plus-15 rating, Ribeiro is worth owning in most formats.

Marek Mazanec
Preds' Mazanec Gives Up Two Goals In Loss
Marek Mazanec, G, NSH
12:35 PM
News: Marek Mazanec gave up two goals on 27 shots in Friday's loss to Colorado.
Analysis: It was a good effort from Marek Mazanec, who got no offensive support in the shutout loss. It was the first start of the season for the 23-year-old, who had been giving way to Carter Hutton in Pekka Rinne's (knee) absence. Considering Hutton has given up seven goals in his last two starts, Mazanec could be worth a temporary pick-up until Rinne returns.

Semyon Varlamov
Avs' Varlamov Makes 23 Saves, Blanks Predators
Semyon Varlamov, G, COL
12:24 PM
News: Semyon Varlamov stopped all 23 shots he faced in Friday's shutout win over Nashville.
Analysis: A perfect outing for the workhorse, who has started 14 of the Avs' past 15 games. Semyon Varlamov is now 13-10-7 on the season with a .922 save percentage and 2.62 GAA. He's delivered some consistency play of late, allowing more than three goals just once in his last 10 appearances. Considering he's starting almost every game for an Avs team that has picked up at least one point in six of their last seven games, Varlamov is a great own in almost all formats.

Antti Niemi
Sharks Rolling With Niemi On Saturday
Antti Niemi, G, SJ
11:33 AM
News: Antti Niemi will be between the pipes for Saturday's tilt with the Blackhawks, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Antti Niemi has faced a bear of a schedule lately. After drawing a loss to a surprisingly competitive Flames squad two Saturdays ago, he was able to outlast the Kings and Ducks his last two times out. He'll have difficulty sustaining that winning streak against the Blackhawks and their impressive attack, which has generated at least three goals in four of its last five games. It might be worthwhile for Niemi's owners to explore other goalie options for Saturday's slate.

Louis Domingue
Coyotes' Domingue Recalled From Minors
Louis Domingue, G, ARI
11:28 AM
News: Louis Domingue was recalled from AHL Portland on Saturday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Louis Domingue has made 13 appearances for Portland this season, producing a 8-4-1 record, 2.40 GAA and .922 save percentage. It's unclear if he'll stick around with the Coyotes much further beyond the weekend, but however long the duration of his stay, don't expect him to see much -- if any -- action behind No. 1 twinetender Mike Smith.

Mike McKenna
Coyotes Send McKenna Back To Minors
Mike McKenna, G, ARI
11:25 AM
News: Mike McKenna was reassigned to AHL Portland on Saturday, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
Analysis: Mike McKenna didn't see any action during his two-game stay with the Coyotes. A similar fate will likely await Louis Domingue, who was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. The Coyotes appear content to lean heavily on No. 1 goalie Mike Smith throughout the second half.

Taylor Hall
Oilers' Hall Out Again Saturday
Taylor Hall, LW, EDM
11:23 AM
News: Taylor Hall (lower leg) will not play in Saturday's game against the Sharks, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Taylor Hall was able to resume skating with the team at morning skate, but his absence from line rushes means that he will head to the press box for a third straight contest. Still, the Oilers have to be encouraged by Hall's presence on the ice, further affirming that a long-term injury has been avoided. He'll set his sights on a return to action Monday in San Jose.

Jimmy Howard
Red Wings' Howard Unlikely For Road Trip
Jimmy Howard, G, DET
11:19 AM
News: Jimmy Howard (groin) isn't expected to be activated from injured reserve during the Red Wings' forthcoming three-game road trip, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: If that's indeed the case, it would push Jimmy Howard's return back to no sooner than mid-February. The netminder has been able to skate a few times this week, but has yet to receive clearance to resume practicing.

Jonas Gustavsson
Wings Loan Gustavsson To Grand Rapids
Jonas Gustavsson, G, DET
11:16 AM
News: Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve and loaned to AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday for a conditioning stint.
Analysis: The Red Wings cleared up a 23-man roster spot for Jonas Gustavsson by waiving Brian Lashoff, but the goalie likely won't be available for action with the big club until next week. He'll man the net Saturday for Grand Rapids in what will mark his first game in three months. The conditioning stint is only expected to last one game, with Tom McCollum set to be reassigned to the AHL club once Gustavsson rejoins the Red Wings. Gustavsson's first start could come as soon as Thursday's game against the Avalanche.
