Taylor Hall, LW, EDM Oilers' Hall In Midst Of Cold Spell

Taylor Hall

Oilers' Hall In Midst Of Cold Spell

News: Taylor Hall has tallied just one point in the Oilers' last seven games.
Analysis: Taylor Hall hasn't seen his shot attempts take a dramatic dip during the scoring drought, but if he's not finding the back of the net with regularity, the Oilers are in a serious trouble. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that with Hall slumping, the Oilers haven't mustered more than two goals in any match during that seven-game stretch. The burden of carrying the Oilers for the past five seasons clearly seems to be weighing down Hall, whose name has been starting to show up in trade rumors more frequently of late.

Reilly Smith, RW, BOS Bruins' Smith Producing Steadily

Reilly Smith

Bruins' Smith Producing Steadily

News: Reilly Smith netted a goal in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Predators.
Analysis: After a meager start to the season, Reilly Smith has really clicked since joining Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on the top trio, tallying four goals and two assists over the last five games. Smith's recent surge in production could make it tough on coach Claude Julien to break up the trio once David Krejci (groin) returns, which could happen as soon as Wednesday's game against the Wild.

12/18/2014

Chris Thorburn, RW, WPG

Chris Thorburn

Jets' Thorburn Scores Goal In Win

News: Chris Thorburn scored his second goal of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Sabres.
Analysis: As his two points in 31 games would suggest, Chris Thorburn isn't someone the Jets are looking to for offense most nights. Instead, he'll carry most of his value as a grinder on the checking line and a leader in the locker room.

12/18/2014

Carl Hagelin, LW, NYR

Carl Hagelin

Rangers' Hagelin Bags Goal Tuesday

News: Carl Hagelin tallied his seventh goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Oilers.
Analysis: Carl Hagelin has notched goals in back-to-back contests, giving him 13 points in 29 contests this season. However, he's currently skating on the third line with Kevin Hayes and Lee Stempniak, a role that won't afford him much more than 15 minutes per night. He's a solid depth scorer for the Rangers, but fantasy owners can likely do better.

12/18/2014

Josh Harding, G, MIN

Josh Harding

No Timetable For Harding's Return From MS Setback

News: Josh Harding has yet to return to practice with Iowa teammates since being hospitalized for dehydration after playing two periods for AHL Iowa on Dec. 6, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. The dehydration episode was related to his multiple sclerosis.
Analysis: There's no timetable for his return and it sounds like this could be a significant setback to his multiple sclerosis issues.

12/18/2014

Kari Lehtonen, G, DAL

Kari Lehtonen

Stars' Lehtonen In Line To Start Wednesday

News: Kari Lehtonen was the first goalie off the ice at the Stars' gameday skate and is slated to start Wednesday against the Canucks, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen has alternated wins in losses in his previous four December starts, continuing a trend of rather inconsistent play this season. He'll catch a bit of a break in matching up against Canucks backup goalie Eddie Lack on Tuesday, but it's still difficult to trust him at this point. The last time Lehtonen played Vancouver, he came away with a 6-3 victory during which he faced 46 shots. It wouldn't be shocking if another barnburner broke out again Wednesday.

12/18/2014

Bryce Salvador, D, NJ

Bryce Salvador

Devils' Salvador Still Not Skating

News: Bryce Salvador (lower body) has yet to resume skating since landing on injured reserve Nov. 17, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Bryce Salvador suggested that he's making progress, but he has yet to show anything tangible that would indicate as much. The 38-year-old is in the final year of his contract with the Devils and could be headed for retirement once the season concludes.

6:11 PM

Cody Hodgson, C, BUF

Cody Hodgson

Sabres' Hodgson Not On Nolan's Good Side

News: Cody Hodgson seems to have landed in coach Ted Nolan's doghouse again, playing only 4:55 in Tuesday's loss to the Jets and not seeing the ice again after he lost a faceoff on a power play and got out-hustled for a shorthanded goal by Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Cody Hodgson is having a horrible season, and is one of the few Sabres who hasn't seen success in recent weeks as the team has turned its season around. He continues to play on a bottom line and might be in line for some more press box time, while his five points on the season is a gross underachievement compared to his six-year, $25.5 million salary.

6:04 PM

Mikhail Grigorenko, C, BUF

Mikhail Grigorenko

Sabers Send Grigorenko Back To Rochester

News: Mikhail Grigorenko was sent back to Rochester of the AHL on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Mikhail Grigorenko played his first game for the Sabres this season in Tuesday's loss to the Jets. With the team off until Saturday, either Torrey Mitchell will be back from injury by then, or this gives Grigorenko a chance to sneak in another AHL game ahead of possibly being needed again for the weekend. Although the first-rounder has struggled in his early NHL career, he made some nice strides over the summer and almost made the team out of camp. It's good that he seems to have set himself up to be the first or second choice when the Sabres need a forward.

5:05 PM

David Krejci, C, BOS

David Krejci

Bruins' Krejci (Groin) Active Wednesday

News: David Krejci will play Wednesday night against the Wild.
Analysis: All the signs during pregame pointed to David Krejci being ready to take the ice, and here's the official confirmation. Matt Fraser, Matt Bartkowski and Joe Morrow will be the Bruins' official scratches.

4:53 PM

Dmitrij Jaskin, RW, STL

Dmitrij Jaskin

Blues Recall Jaskin From AHL Chicago

News: Dmitrij Jaskin was recalled from AHL Chicago on Wednesday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Dmitrij Jaskin will provide the Blues with offensive depth while Jaden Schwartz is week-to-week with a foot injury. He has one point in six contests with the team earlier this year.

4:47 PM

Jaden Schwartz, LW, STL

Jaden Schwartz

Blues' Schwartz (Foot) "Week-To-Week"

News: Jaden Schwartz is dealing with a foot injury, and the team has classified him as "week-to-week," NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Jaden Schwartz has produced 11 goals and 16 helpers on the season, but the winger won't be deployed by St. Louis in the short term. He appears to have suffered the injury Tuesday night against the Kings, but little is known regarding the exact nature of his condition at the moment.

4:40 PM

Niklas Svedberg, G, BOS

Niklas Svedberg

Bruins' Svedberg To Start Wednesday

News: Niklas Svedberg led the Bruins on the ice for pregame warmups Wednesday night, and will start in goal against the Wild.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will relieve regular starter Tukka Rask, who will rest for the second night of a back-to-back set. The 25-year-old netminder owns a 2.28 GAA and .922 save percentage on the season.

4:33 PM

Antti Raanta, G, CHI

Antti Raanta

Hawks' Raanta Stays In NHL, Darling Sent Down

News: Antti Raanta will remain with the Blackhawks as the team sent down Scott Darling to Rockford of the AHL on Tuesday, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: The decision to keep Antti Raanta up with the big club and send Darling down to Rockford was a tough one. The move was made with the anticipation that starting goalie Corey Crawford will return this weekend after missing a few weeks because of an injury. While Crawford was out, Darling actually had more starts, but the move might have been to give more net time for Darling. Unless Crawford sustains another injury, Raanta will most likely only see an occasional start. He has played well in goal with a 5-2 record, a 2.01 goals against average and a .938 save percentage. Despite the return of Crawford, Raanta will probably start in a back-to-back scenario this weekend, Saturday against Columbus and Sunday against Toronto.

4:10 PM

Damon Severson, D, NJ

Damon Severson

Davils' Severson (Lower Body) Scratched Wednesday

News: Damon Severson will not play Wednesday due to a lower body injury.
Analysis: Damon Severson was a bit of a surprise scratch, as no signs of his potential absence surfaced until right before game time. He'll look to return Friday night against the Lightning.

3:43 PM

John Curry, G, MIN

John Curry

Wild's Curry Will Serve As Backup Wednesday

News: John Curry will back up Niklas Backstrom in Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: John Curry was called up to provide insurance with both Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper dealing with illnesses, and while he will not start Wednesday, he will work in a backup role with Kuemper still under the weather.

3:28 PM

Jared Spurgeon, D, MIN

Jared Spurgeon

Wild's Spurgeon Will Return Wednesday

News: Jared Spurgeon (illness) will play Wednesday against the Bruins, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jared Spurgeon will return to action after missing the last two games with a stomach ailment. He will replace Christian Folin in the lineup for Wednesday's game.

3:25 PM

Darcy Kuemper, G, MIN

Darcy Kuemper

Wild's Kuemper Unavailable Wednesday

News: Darcy Kuemper (illness) will not be available Wednesday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: With Darcy Kuemper out, Niklas Backstrom will start for the Wild on Wednesday, and John Curry will serve as his backup. It's not clear how much longer Kuemper will be sidelined, but consider him questionable for Minnesota's next game Saturday.

3:21 PM

Niklas Backstrom, G, MIN

Niklas Backstrom

Wild's Backstrom To Start Wednesday

News: Niklas Backstrom (illness) will be in goal for Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Niklas Backstrom's status for Wednesday's game was in question due to a stomach illness, but he will be able to take the ice as expected. Fellow goaltender Darcy Kuemper is also dealing with an illness and will not be available Wednesday, so John Curry will serve as Backstrom's backup Wednesday night.

3:06 PM

John Gibson, G, ANA

John Gibson

Ducks Activate Gibson, Send Him To AHL

News: John Gibson (groin) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday and reassigned to AHL Norfolk.
Analysis: John Gibson has steadily made his way back from a groin injury that has caused him to miss more than a month, and is finally ready to return. With the signing of Ilya Bryzgolov, he is expected to play most of the season at AHL Norfolk, where Gibson will receive regular playing time.

2:56 PM

Thomas Greiss, G, PIT

Thomas Greiss

Greiss To Start For Pens?

News: Thomas Greiss makes for a short-term speculative pickup, given starter's Marc-Andre Fleury's current sickness.
Analysis: The Penguins play home games Thursday against Colorado and Saturday versus Florida. It's possible that Fleury might miss those games if he indeed has contracted the mumps, putting Thomas Greiss in line for a pair of starts against two middling teams. The Pittsburgh backup sports a 3-2-2 mark with a 2.53 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

2:54 PM

Jeff Zatkoff, G, PIT

Jeff Zatkoff

Penguins Recall Zatkoff

News: Jeff Zatkoff was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Jeff Zatkoff has played in 15 games this season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season, posting a 1.89 GAA and .918 save percentage. He will likely provide the Penguins with a backup in the event that Marc-Andre Fleury, who is being tested for the mumps, is unavailable.

1:53 PM

Oscar Klefbom, D, EDM

Oscar Klefbom

Oilers' Klefbom To Miss Third Straight

News: Oscar Klefbom (foot) is expected miss his third straight game Thursday against the Sharks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Oscar Klefbom was able to practice Wednesday, but the Oilers want to proceed cautiously with ushering him back into the lineup. Instead, Klefbom will likely be eyeing a return to action Sunday versus the Stars.

1:51 PM

Boyd Gordon, C, EDM

Boyd Gordon

Oilers' Gordon Set To Return Thursday

News: Boyd Gordon (back) is set to return to the lineup Thursday against the Sharks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Boyd Gordon took part in rushes with the fourth line at Wednesday's practice and should be formally activated from IR on Thursday morning. He missed just over a week with the back issue. The Oilers will be glad to welcome their top face-off artist back to the lineup, but he won't be able to provide the offensive lift the Oilers desperately need right now.

1:46 PM

Ian White, D, WPG

Ian White

White Signs PTO With AHL Milwaukee

News: Ian White signed a professional tryout contract with AHL Milwaukee on Wednesday.
Analysis: After spending 2013-14 in the KHL, Ian White returned to North America this season, skating for AHL Providence before his release. The 30-year-old has over 500 career NHL games under his belt, so he could be a good organizational depth option for the Predators in the event that injuries strike their blue line.
