Player News
Cody Ceci
Sens' Ceci Nabs Power-Play Assist
Cody Ceci, D, OTT
10:58 AM
News: Cody Ceci assisted on Bobby Ryan's power-play goal in Thursday's loss to the Stars.
Analysis: The 21-year-old has a goal and two assists over his last four games, but he'll need to sustain that pace for a longer period of time before warranting serious consideration in shallower formats. The 2012 first-round draft pick has a modest six goals and 16 assists over 95 career games.

Robin Lehner
Sens' Lehner To Start Saturday Against Coyotes
Robin Lehner, G, OTT
10:58 AM
News: Robin Lehner will start Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: With Craig Anderson (hand) placed on injured reserve Thursday, Robin Lehner will make a second consecutive start. Anderson's stint on IR can be backdated to Jan. 21, which means he could return for Tuesday's game in New Jersey. The hand injury is not thought to be overly serious.

Scott Laughton
Flyers' Laughton Practices, But Remains Out
Scott Laughton, C, PHI
10:56 AM
News: Scott Laughton (concussion) took part in Friday's practice, but will remain out of the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton has demonstrated incremental progress by getting on the ice the last two days, but the Flyers aren't quite ready to clear him for full-contact action just yet. If he continues to recover well over the weekend, Laughton will have a realistic chance at playing next Thursday against the Islanders.

Nicklas Grossmann
Flyers' Grossmann Being Considered For Saturday
Nicklas Grossmann, D, PHI
10:54 AM
News: Nicklas Grossmann (shoulder) hasn't been ruled out as a lineup option for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: The Flyers medical staff has already cleared Nicklas Grossmann for a return, and his participation in Friday's practice lends further credence to the belief that he might be cleared to play Saturday. At this point, the decision seems to remain solely up to coach Craig Berube, who will likely evaluate Grossmann during Saturday's morning skate before determining his status for the game that evening.

Adam Clendening
Canucks' Clendening Recalled From AHL
Adam Clendening, D, CHI
10:53 AM
News: Adam Clendening was recalled from AHL Rockford on Friday, the Canucks' official website reports.
Analysis: One day after being traded from the Blackhawks to the Canucks, Adam Clendening will join the NHL roster. The 22-year-old defenseman has two points in four NHL appearances this season, with another 13 points in 38 AHL games.

Alexei Marchenko
Wings Bring Marchenko Up For A Look
Alexei Marchenko, D, DET
10:47 AM
News: Alexei Marchenko was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: General manager Ken Holland expressed a desire to give Alexei Marchenko a trial run at the NHL level after he supplied 17 points in 42 games for the AHL squad. Marchenko's stay with the Red Wings isn't expected to be a long-term one, as the team appears committed to swapping Xavier Ouellet back into the lineup at some point next week.

Xavier Ouellet
Red Wings Send Ouellet To Minors
Xavier Ouellet, D, DET
10:44 AM
News: Xavier Ouellet was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: It was expected that the Red Wings' placement of Brian Lashoff on waivers Friday would lock Xavier Ouellet into a roster spot the rest of the season; instead, he'll be bound for a trip back to Grand Rapids. GM Ken Holland suggested that the team simply demoted Ouellet in order to get a look at AHL blueliner AHL Alexey Marchenko over the weekend, so it doesn't appear a permanent stay in the minors is in store. Ouellet could be back with the Red Wings as soon as next week.

Colton Sceviour
Stars' Sceviour Gets Goal, Assist In Win
Colton Sceviour, C, DAL
10:39 AM
News: Colton Sceviour recorded a goal and assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Senators.
Analysis: Though Patrick Eaves has since displaced him on the Tyler Seguin-Jamie Benn line, Colton Sceviour may warrant another look after Tuesday's performance. He notched the goal on a deflected shot by fellow fourth-liner Vernon Fiddler, then picked up the secondary helper as a member of the Stars' No. 2 power-play unit. Sceviour accomplished all of that in less than nine minutes of ice time, which should allow him to maintain his spot in the lineup a little while longer, even if it doesn't result in a promotion.

Jamie Benn
Jamie Benn Pots Two In Stars Victory
Jamie Benn, LW, DAL
10:35 AM
News: Jamie Benn potted even-strength and shorthanded goals and added two PIM in Thursday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: The shortie came with less than 30 seconds remaining when the Senators were running an empty net. In any case, it amounted to another impressive showing for Jamie Benn, who has churned out four goals and four assists over his last five games.

Dmitry Orlov
Caps Say "Nothing's Been Decided" About Orlov
Dmitry Orlov, D, WAS
10:34 AM
News: The Capitals remain uncertain about what they will do about Dmitry Orlov (wrist) this season, indicating that "nothing is off the table, including a second procedure", Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It's been a frustrating season for Dmitry Orlov who has yet to play in any games this season as a result of ongoing, post-surgical complications to repair a broken wrist suffered during the 2014 IIHF World Championships in Belarus last summer. Orlov has been reportedly making progress, but this report casts doubt on his short-term future. It's looking increasingly likely that Orlov will not return to the NHL ranks this season, and thus his value remains limited to keeper leagues, although given his struggles in recovering from this injury, one now wonders if this will cast a shadow on his long-term prospects. For now, monitor his progress and keep any eye on him for next season.
