Mark Visentin

Coyotes' Visentin (Lower Body) Helped Off Ice

News: Mark Visentin suffered a lower body injury during Sunday's training camp scrimmage.
Analysis: Mark Visentin was helped off of the ice, so it's possible the injury is something fairly serious, but it's too early to tell, as the report did not provide definitive details. Another update should be forthcoming once Visentin is evaluated by the team's medical staff.

Nathan Lieuwen

Sabres Start Lieuwen In Preseason Opener

News: Nathan Lieuwen will start and possibly play the whole game in their preseason opener Sunday against Washington.
Analysis: The Sabres are dressing their two AHL goalies with Nathan Lieuwen and Andrey Makarov. Lieuwen, a sixth-round pick, usurped the starting job from Matt Hackett in Rochester last year until a concussion shut Lieuwen down for the season, paving the way for Makarov to finish as Rochester's starter in the playoffs. Lieuwen finished his AHL season with a .922 save percentage and 17 wins in 32 appearances. Interesting to hear that head coach Ted Nolan will likely play Lieuwen the whole game, sending the message loud and clear that each goalie will get a fair shot and a fair look. It's open season in the organization right now as Lieuwen and Makarov vie for the starting job in Rochester while Michal Neuvirth and Jhonas Enroth battle for the big league gig.

Merrill To Sit Monday For Devils

News: Jon Merrill (head) will not play Monday against the Rangers in the Devils' preseason opener after suffering a slight head injury Saturday.
Analysis: Jon Merrill collided with Ruslan Fedotenko on Saturday and appeared woozy. He will not play Monday simply as a precaution and will likely be limited in the coming week.

Cory Schneider, G, NJ

Cory Schneider

Devils To Rest Schneider Monday

News: Cory Schneider will not play in Monday's preseason opener against the Rangers.
Analysis: Schenider's job as New Jersey's No. 1 netminder is massively secure, but the team needs to figure out who will be their backup netminder this season. That contest is between Scott Wedgewood, Keith Kinkaid and Maxime Clermont, two of whom will begin the season in the AHL. Schenider had some of the best peripheral statistics among NHL starting goaltenders last season despite just 16 wins in 45 games. He's a safe option after the netminders who will pile up wins are snagged.

Mike Cammalleri, C, NJ

Mike Cammalleri

Cammalleri Seeing Time On Devils' Top Line

News: Mike Cammalleri has been playing left wing on the team's top line alongside Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Mike Cammalleri will be expected to challenge the 30-goal plateau and could have a decent shot if he is able to develop chemistry with Zajac and Jagr. The veteran sniper can also play center, but the Devils are starting him off on the wing where he will be expected to shoot often. Cammalleri had 26 goals in 63 games last year for Calgary, a season that saw him battle various nagging injuries.

Adam Larsson, D, NJ

Adam Larsson

Larsson Under Pressure At Devils' Camp

News: Adam Larsson will need to earn the trust of the New Jersey coaching staff in order to secure a spot in the team's lineup.
Analysis: Adam Larsson has to have a strong camp in order to secure one of the open spots on the team's roster. With him on a one-way, one-year contract now, he'll have to pass through waivers if he is sent down, so he has a roster spot in theory. The fourth-overall pick of the 2011 draft has seen sparse ice time the last few seasons and will need to have a strong training camp along with fellow youngster Eric Gelinas in order to earn the trust of the team's coaching staff.

Eric Gelinas, D, NJ

Eric Gelinas

Gelinas Needs To Impress Devils' Coaches

News: Eric Gelinas will need to earn the trust of the New Jersey coaching staff in order to secure a spot in the team's lineup.
Analysis: Eric Gelinas had a rather up-and-down rookie season, with the bulk of his 29 points coming early in his 60 games. He spent several stints in the minors and will need to play well in preseason games to earn a regular spot on the roster. He offers a ton of offensive upside, especially on the power play where he snagged 17 points, but him receiving regular ice time will come down to how he plays in his own zone. The Devils' coaching staff love their veterans and Gelinas had a rather short leash last season. He's worth a risk, just don't make it a sizable one in most leagues.

Erik Haula, LW, MIN

Erik Haula

Wild's Haula (Jaw) Back To Full Speed

News: Erik Haula, who suffered a broken jaw at the World Championships in Belarus in May, is back to full strength at the start of training camp, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Erik Haula looks set to center the Wild's third line. Huala had a strong showing in the playoffs with four goals and seven points in 11 games and looks set to build on that performance with a set job in the NHL this season.

9/21/2014

Andre Burakovsky, LW, WAS

Andre Burakovsky

Caps' Burakovsky Scores First (Unofficial) Goal

News: Andre Burakovsky scored the only goal in the Capitals' 1-0 over Buffalo on Sunday night.
Analysis: Andre Burakovsky scored a nice wrist shot from the face-off circle, and continued to build on his impressive offseason. While Burakovsky is likely destined for AHL Hershey for the balance of the season, the 19-year-old Swede has impressed his coaches throughout the summer. With the leg injury to Tom Wilson and Burakovsky's emerging skills as a potential scoring line center, Burakovsky might be able to secure a roster spot if he keeps this level of play throughout preseason. Keep an eye on him, as Burakovsky has some burgeoning sleeper potential in single-season leagues, and is a must own in keeper leagues.

9/21/2014

Joel Ward, RW, WAS

Joel Ward

Caps' Ward Tallies Assist In Sunday's Win

News: Joel Ward had an assist and two PIM's in 17:25 of ice time during the Capitals' 1-0 win over Buffalo on Sunday.
Analysis: Joel Ward played with Jason Chimera and rookie Andre Burakovsky at even-strength. Like Chimera, Ward had a banner year last season. Although the two have great chemistry, it wouldn't be surprising to see his production regress some this season. Keep an eye on him, but he's probably only worth drafting in deeper leagues.

9/21/2014

Jason Chimera, LW, WAS

Jason Chimera

Caps' Chimera Tallies Assist In Sunday's 1-0 Win

News: Jason Chimera assisted on the only goal of the Capitals' 1-0 victory over Buffalo.
Analysis: Jason Chimera played on a line with Joel Ward and rookie Andre Burakovsky during even-strength shifts. Although he has great chemistry with Ward, Chimera's career-high production last season is likely an anomaly at this stage in his career. He's worth keeping an eye on, but don't be surprised if his production declines this season.

9/21/2014

Milan Lucic, LW, BOS

Milan Lucic

Bruins' Lucic Misses Scrimmage

News: Milan Lucic (wrist) did not play in Sunday's scrimmage, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: Milan Lucic is playing is safe following offseason wrist surgery and while he is able to practice, he hasn't been cleared yet for games just yet.

Chad LaRose, RW, CAR

Chad LaRose

Canes' LaRose Suffering From Quadriceps Injury

News: Chad LaRose, who signed an AHL contract in July, is recovering from a quadriceps injury, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Chad LaRose missed all of last season and nearly left the game for good, but is attempting to make a comeback this year with the Charlotte Checkers. He originally suffered the injury roughly eight weeks ago in training, but returned to the ice this week skating with Canes assistant coach Rod Brind'Amour. He hopes to be ready for when the Checkers' training camp opens later this month.

Ryan Murray, D, CLB

Ryan Murray

Jackets' Murray (Knee) Skates Sunday

News: Ryan Murray (knee) was able to skate in practice Sunday, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murray skated as part of the non-contact group, but this is still good news for his recovery. It appears that he is progressing well, and should be ready well before the regular season.

P.A. Parenteau, RW, MON

P.A. Parenteau

Montreal's Parenteau Scores Again

News: P.A. Parenteau scored a goal in Sunday's intra-squad scrimmage Sunday, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: It was the second straight scrimmage that P.A. Parenteau has found the net; he scored twice Saturday. Head coach Michel Therrien has not indicated where he sees a best fit for Parenteau, but the right winger appears headed for a top-6 role.

9/21/2014

Daniel Cleary, RW, DET

Daniel Cleary

Detroit's Cleary Feels Healthy Heading Into Fall

News: Daniel Cleary says his knee problems are behind him and he's ready for a bounceback campaign after his worst season with the Red Wings, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Daniel Cleary signed for less to stay with Detroit but didn't end up doing much, with only eight points in 52 games. Cleary was a fairly strong producer for the Red Wings for several years, but at 35, is more of a veteran depth winger.

9/21/2014

Riley Nash, C, CAR

Riley Nash

Canes' Nash Promoted To Second Line In Preseason

News: Riley Nash will center the second line between Jeff Skinner and Elias Lindholm in the Canes' first preseason game Sunday against Columbus, the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: This looks to be a temporary assignment for now, as coach Bill Peters has decided to rest Eric Staal against the Jackets, meaning second- and third line centers Jordan Staal and Riley Nash move up in the pecking order. Once the regular season begins, Nash is more likely to be back centering the third line with the likes of Nathan Gerbe and either Patrick Dwyer or Zach Boychuk.

9/21/2014

Eric Staal, C, CAR

Eric Staal

Canes' Staal To Miss First Preseason Game

News: Eric Staal will be held out of the Canes' first preseason game as a precaution, reports the Raleigh News & Observer.
Analysis: According to coach Bill Peters, Eric Staal is not injured, and has not not missed any practice time in camp. However, Staal did have surgery for an abdominal injury this summer, and it sounds like Peters is just being cautious with his star center in the early going. For now, this does not appear to be something that will affect Staal's preseason fantasy value, but it's worth keeping an eye on nonetheless.

Derek Stepan, C, NYR

Derek Stepan

Rangers' Stepan Day-To-Day With Foot Contusion

News: Derek Stepan has a foot contusion after blocking a shot in practice, and is considered day-to-day, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Derek Stepan's day-to-day injury designation indicates that this is a minor injury, and should be ready start the regular season. Provided he does return to action soon, this injury should not affect Stepan's fantasy value.

9/21/2014

Ryan Johansen, C, CLB

Ryan Johansen

Jackets, Johansen Remain $3 Million Per Year Apart

News: The latest contract offer from the Ryan Johansen camp, rejected by the Blue Jackets on Thursday, is reportedly for two years and $12 million, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: That's down a million from their last proposal, which is some sign of progress, but it's still double the Jackets' offer of two years and $6 million. With multiple KHL teams inserting themselves into the mix, including a one year, $5 million offer from CSKA Moscow, things could get very interesting over the next few weeks.

9/21/2014

Boone Jenner, C, CLB

Boone Jenner

Jackets' Jenner Shifting To Center

News: With Ryan Johansen not in training camp due to a contract dispute, Boone Jenner will play center rather than left wing in the Blue Jackets' first exhibition game on Sunday, the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Boone Jenner was an excellent faceoff man in the junior ranks, so Johansen's absence will be a golden chance for the sophomore to prove he shouldn't be playing on the wing.

9/21/2014

Jarret Stoll, C, LA

Jarret Stoll

Kings' Stoll At Full Speed Following Hip Surgery

News: Jarret Stoll, who had offseason hip surgery, has been a full participant in training camp so far, the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Jarret Stoll's expected to fill a checking line role again for the Kings this season.

9/21/2014

Ryan Ellis, D, NSH

Ryan Ellis

Preds, Ellis Still At Odds Over New Contract

News: Preds GM David Poile addressed Ryan Ellis' contract situation Saturday, saying the main stumbling block continues to be money, according to the Tennessean. "Unfortunately at this time we have not agreed what they think and what we think is fair compensation," Poile said. "We want [Ellis]. We are not trading him, we really like him. We really like the way he played last year. It's just a disagreement on dollars."
Analysis: Ryan Ellis, who has missed the first two days of training camp so far, played in 80 games last season for and finished with 27 points - his highest full season total to date. And while there is still plenty of time left to get a deal done before the start of the season, the clock is ticking. Not only is he missing out on conditioning drills and scrimmages, the more Ellis misses of training camp, the greater the chances of some other defenseman impressing the coaching staff and grabbing a roster spot that might otherwise go to Ellis. Bottom line, we think Ellis will get signed by the start of the regular season, but what his role on the team will be is anybody's guess. He's a risky fantasy pick right now, until all of the above gets sorted out.

Joe Thornton

Sharks' Thornton Disagrees With General Manager

News: Joe Thornton took issue Friday with general manager Doug Wilson's offseason comments about the Sharks rebuilding and becoming a "tomorrow team," reports the San Jose Mercury News. "That's Doug's opinion," said the big center. "I think if you'd ask anybody in here I don't think they have the same feeling."
Analysis: There have been plenty of rumors about Wilson doing all he can to push Jumbo Joe into a place where the center either demands a trade or the situation becomes ripe to ship him out of town. There seems to be a bit of a ripple starting in San Jose -- we'll see how far it goes.

Bolts' Koekkoek (Shoulder): Feels 100 Percent

News: Slater Koekkoek (shoulder) skated in practice Friday and said his surgically repaired shoulders "felt 100-percent," reports the Tampa Bay Times. "I didn't play with any hesitation," said the big defender.
Analysis: This guy has all the potential in the world and could be dominant. But he desperately needs to stay healthy for a full season, something that just hasn't happened in years after multiple shoulder surgeries. He'll spend a full season in the AHL this year and the Bolts hope he can prove those shoulder issues are a thing of the past.
