Danny Kristo, RW, NYR

Danny Kristo

Kristo Re-Signs With Rangers

News: Danny Kristo re-signed with the Rangers on Thursday.
Analysis: The 24-year-old Danny Kristo tallied 25 goals and 18 assists in 65 games with AHL Hartford last season. Another season at the AHL level likely awaits.

Patrick Marleau, LW, SJ

Patrick Marleau

Sharks Take Marleau's Alternate Captain Status

News: The Sharks announced Wednesday that they would enter camp without a captain, which includes taking the "A" off Patrick Marleau's sweater, the Mercury News reports.
Analysis: It had been rumored and hinted at all summer that Patrick Marleau and captain Joe Thornton would have their leadership roles passed to younger players. It has also been rumored that both were asked to waive their no trade clause. Neither did. The team wants the younger generation to take the torch, but as far as fantasy is concerned, you can't reduce the playing time of a player like Marleau, who scored 33 goals and 37 assists last season.

8/20/2014

Joe Thornton, C, SJ

Joe Thornton

Sharks Strip Thornton Of Captaincy

News: The Sharks officially announce Wednesday that Joe Thornton would not be the team captain entering training camp, the Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Coach Todd McLellan said that he doesn't consider it to be stripping Joe Thornton of anything, since he'll be given the opportunity to earn the "C" back. The team has talked frequently this offseason of passing the torch to the next generation and that's what this appears to be. Thornton was not only rumored to be losing his "C," but was involved in trade rumors as well. However, he has a no trade clause and doesn't seem interested in leaving San Jose.

Raffi Torres

Sharks' Torres To Miss Months With Knee Infection

News: Raffi Torres suffered an infection in his surgically-repaired right knee and is expected to miss the first few months of the season while he undergoes another operation on the knee, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Raffi Torres was limited to just five regular-season contests in 2013-14 after undergoing knee surgery and suffering a subsequent setback shortly after returning after the Olympics. He would ultimately rejoin the Sharks during the postseason and looked to be healthy heading into the upcoming campaign, but it seems the infection surfaced at some point over the summer. For the second straight season, he'll open on injured reserve as a result, with no concrete date for his return. Torres has been a useful player for the Sharks when he's been on the ice, but with two years still remaining on his contract, his durability concerns might dampen the remainder of his tenure with his team.

8/20/2014

Dennis Seidenberg, D, BOS

Dennis Seidenberg

Bruins' Seidenberg Eyes Training Camp

News: Dennis Seidenberg (knee) expects to be ready for training camp, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Dennis Seidenberg, who last suited up on Dec. 27, had surgery in early January to repair an ACL/MCL injury in his right knee in. At the time, the estimated timetable for a return was in the 6-8 month range. With no reported setbacks since then, and given that the sturdy blueliner indicated that he probably could have returned to action had the Bruins advanced to the Eastern Conference Final, things appear to be on track for him to be at, or near, 100 percent in advance of the upcoming regular season.

Henrik Zetterberg, LW, DET

Henrik Zetterberg

Wings' Zetterberg: Healthy Heading Into Camp

News: Coach Mike Babcock relayed that Henrik Zetterberg (foot) said he was "feeling the best he has in years" this offseason, suggesting he'll be a full participant in training camp, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: With both Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk missing 37 games apiece last season, the Red Wings were forced to get by with a patchwork forward ranks to so-so results. Now that both players are feeling healthy, the depth chart should enjoy more stability in 2014-15, but don't be surprised if Zetterberg notices a drop in ice time for maintenance purposes as he enters his age-34 season. Still, Zetterberg hasn't had many health issues prior to last season, and managed to supply 48 points over the 45 contests in which he suited up. There's plenty of value to be had in Zetterberg, even as he takes on a more deferential role to emerging wings Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar in the years to come.

8/20/2014

Pavel Datsyuk, C, DET

Pavel Datsyuk

Red Wings' Datsyuk Feeling Good Heaing Into Camp

News: Coach Mike Babcock relayed that Pavel Datsyuk (knee) said he was feeling "the best he has in years" this offseason, suggesting he'll be ready to go for training camp, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Considering Pavel Datsyuk hasn't played since late April, it's no surprise he's feeling spry, but there's serious questions he'll hold up for 82 games as he enters his age-34 campaign. He's missed a total of 76 games over his last four seasons, muting the impact of the nearly point-per-game production he provides when healthy. Considering his injury history, Datsyuk might not be worth the markup price his name will cost fantasy players on draft day.

Stephen Weiss, C, DET

Stephen Weiss

Red Wings' Weiss (Hernia) Feeling Healthy

News: Stephen Weiss indicated he's feeling healthy following his April 21 surgery to repair his sports hernia, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Stephen Weiss was a disaster in his first season with the Red Wings after inking a five-year, $24.5 million deal last summer, appearing in only 26 games and totaling four points. He ultimately required a pair of sports hernia surgeries that prevented a second-half return, but after spending the last four months recovering, he appears ready to go for 2014-15. Weiss will be given the opportunity to win back his job as the Wings' No. 2 center, but it seems dubious that he'll be able to return to the 50-point form he showed during his prime years with the Panthers.

Mike Mottau, D, FLA

Mike Mottau

NHLer Mottau Calls It A Career

News: Mike Mottau announced his retirement from professional hockey Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com reports.
Analysis: The Massachusetts native was exploring the option of playing with AHL Providence to stick with his hometown Bruins organization, but decided he was content to spend more time with his family. Mike Mottau, 36, appeared in 321 career NHL games with the Rangers, Flames, Devils, Islanders, Bruins and Panthers, with his most productive seasons coming in the late-2000s with New Jersey.

Josh Harding, G, MIN

Josh Harding

Wild's Harding Cleared For Training Camp

News: Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said Josh Harding is "a go" for training camp, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Everybody seems to be feeling pretty good, and at this stage, all of our players who were banged up at the end of the season are feeling better. Josh has felt good. Right now we're not expecting any issues for anybody with respect to passing training camp medicals."
Analysis: With an 18-7-3 record, 1.65 GAA and .933 save percentage, Josh Harding was playing as well as any goal in hockey before a setback in his treatment for multiple sclerosis sidelined him after the end of December. Because he's missed large chunks of both of the last two seasons while dealing with the effects of the illness, fantasy players shouldn't look to invest heavily in Harding. Even if healthy, he's no lock to open the season as the regular starter in goal for the Wild with Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper still around.

8/19/2014

Niklas Backstrom, G, MIN

Niklas Backstrom

Wild's Backstrom Good To Go For Camp

News: Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said Niklas Backstrom (abdomen, hip) is feeling good and and will be ready to participate in training camp, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Any way you spin it, Niklas Backstrom had a miserable 2013-14 campaign, as the veteran netminder suited up for 21 games and posted a lousy 3.02 GAA and .899 save percentage before undergoing season-ending abdominal and hip surgery. Though he's ostensibly healthy, Backstrom is now 36 and doesn't appear poised to enter the season as the club's starter, especially with Darcy Kuemper and Josh Harding still around. His sizable contract may be the only thing keeping him around.

8/19/2014

Jonas Hiller, G, CGY

Jonas Hiller

Flames' Hiller: Fully Recovered From Appendicitis

News: GM Brad Treliving said Jonas Hiller is "100 percent" recovered from the appendicitis attack that sidelined him in July, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The incident prevented Jonas Hiller from working out for about three weeks, but he's since returned to the ice to resume his usual pre-camp routine in his native Switzerland. Hiller, 32, is the heavy favorite to serve as the Flames' No. 1 goalie this season after inking a two-year contract with Calgary on the first day of free agency.

8/19/2014

Ryan Malone, LW, TB

Ryan Malone

Free Agent Malone Pleads No Contest

News: Ryan Malone pleaded no contest Tuesday to his DUI charge stemming from an April arrest, but did agree to a pretrial diversion program for the cocaine possession charge he received in the same incident, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: The diversion program will help Ryan Malone's chances of getting the felony drug charge dismissed if he completes the required criteria. Malone's pending legal issues have made teams reluctant to extend a contract offer just yet, but several clubs are said to be interested in the 34-year-old. Once he completes the program and completes community service for his DUI charge, Malone should latch on with a team.

8/19/2014

Nick Petrecki, D, SJ

Nick Petrecki

Ex-Shark Petrecki Signs AHL Deal

News: Nick Petrecki signed a one-year AHL contract with Rochester on Tuesday.
Analysis: Nick Petrecki spent most of the past season with AHL Worcester of the San Jose organization, before joining Rochester in a late-season loan. In total, the former first-round selection totaled a goal, three assists and 82 PIM in 49 minor league games. He'll function as a depth player for the Buffalo organization.

8/19/2014

Eric Selleck, LW, FLA

Eric Selleck

Coyotes Ink Selleck To AHL Contract

News: Eric Selleck signed a minor-league contract with AHL Portland on Tuesday.
Analysis: Eric Selleck, 26, is a longtime AHL vet who offers much physicality on the checking line. He's totaled at least 160 penalty minutes in each of his last four seasons in the minors, but won't have great odds of earning a promotion to Arizona at any point.

8/19/2014

Clarke MacArthur, LW, OTT

Clarke MacArthur

Sens Extend MacArthur Five Years

News: Clarke MacArthur inked a five-year, $23.25 million extension with the Senators on Tuesday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Clarke MacArthur was already under contract for $3.25 million for this season, so the new five-year deal won't kick in until 2015-16, keeping him under team control through the end of the 2019-20 campaign. The 29-year-old totaled a career-best 24 goals, 78 PIM and plus-12 rating in his first season in Ottawa, and will be counted on to fill a top-line role long-term on the left wing.

8/18/2014

Steve Mason, G, PHI

Steve Mason

Flyers' Mason Returns To Ice

News: Steve Mason (finger) returned to the ice Monday for the first time since breaking his finger three weeks ago, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: With training camp still a month away, the expectation is that Steve Mason will be healthy enough by that time to participate in full activities. After having to fight for his job as the No. 1 goalie a season ago, Mason will be the team's unquestioned top option between the pipes after going 33-18-7 with a 2.50 GAA and .917 save percentage in 2013-14.

8/18/2014

Mark Borowiecki, D, OTT

Mark Borowiecki

Sens' Borowiecki Receives Three-Year Extension

News: Mark Borowiecki and the Senators agreed to terms on a three-year, $3.3 million contract Monday, Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: Mark Borowiecki was already set to enter the upcoming season with a guaranteed NHL contract for the first time in his career, so the extension just give him some more long-term security with the Senators. The 25-year-old hasn't shown much of a knack for scoring with the Senators or at AHL Binghamton over the last several seasons, but with regular playing time, he could rank among the league's PIM leaders on the blue line.

8/18/2014

Michael Leighton, G, CHI

Michael Leighton

Blackhawks Ink Leighton To One-Year Deal

News: Michael Leighton signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Monday, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Michael Leighton will most likely start the season in the AHL with Corey Crawford and Antti Raanta already on the depth chart for the Blackhawks. He will provide the team with depth at the position, however, and could find his way to the team if either netminder goes down with an injury.

8/16/2014

Daniel Alfredsson, RW, DET

Daniel Alfredsson

Alfredsson To Decide on 2014-15 In Mid-September

News: Daniel Alfredsson may not make a decision on returning to the NHL for 2014-15 until mid-September and could even come to training camp in Detroit on a tryout, according to Ian Mendes of TSN1200 Ottawa.
Analysis: Alfie had 49 points in 68 games last season, but is 42 and on the downside of a glorious career. The Wings might actually be hoping he retires after Thomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist stepped up late in the season and will press for more playing time this season.

8/16/2014

David Clarkson, RW, TOR

David Clarkson

Leafs' Clarkson Working On Fundamentals

News: David Clarkson is in Florida working out with Sidney Crosby, Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon, all guided by trainer Matt Belfry, according to the New York Times.
Analysis: The workouts have been likened to a hockey school of sorts, where players focus on fundamentals and individual skill work. David Clarkson is clearly committed to doing whatever is needed to start again in Toronto, but we'll see how it translates into game action come September and October.

8/16/2014

Sidney Crosby, C, PIT

Sidney Crosby

Pens' Crosby (Wrist) Progressing Well

News: Sidney Crosby (wrist) is pleased with the the way his wrist has responded to treatment this summer, reports the New York Times. "It's good," said Crosby, who added, "You want to see how things progress throughout the summer once you start skating and get back to that regular routine. You want to see how it reacts, so I'm happy with the way it's gone."
Analysis: Sidney Crosby is working out in Florida with several other NHLers under the direction of trainer Matt Belfry. He likened it to a "hockey school" because there's increased focus on fundamentals and individual skill work. And he hasn't looked out of place among the likes of John Tavares, Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon. Great news for fantasy owners -- he should be on track to compete for both the Art Ross and Hart trophies again this year.

8/16/2014

Alex Burmistrov, C, WPG

Alex Burmistrov

Burmistrov Likely To Return To Jets In 2015-16

News: Alex Burmistrov, who is playing in the KHL but remains under Jets' control, will "almost certainly return to (the) NHL," according to Igor Eronko of Sports.ru.
Analysis: The young forward said "next summer will be defining" when he talked about returning to the NHL. He seemed to have issues with former Jets coach, Claude Noel, before he left for the KHL, but Noel is long gone, replaced by Paul Maurice. Alex Burmistrov had 10 goals and 37 points with Ak-Bars of the KHL in 2013-14.

Tim Bozon, LW, MON

Tim Bozon

Habs' Bozon Plays In Game

News: Tim Bozon, who is recovering from a bout of meningitis, played his first game of hockey since becoming ill, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Tim Bozon has been working out in France this summer and was given the green light to play for that country's under-23 team at a tournament in the Czech Republic. He was expected to play two games in the tourney, but ended up playing all six.

8/16/2014

Simon Gagne, LW, PHI

Simon Gagne

Bruins To Give Gagne A Chance

News: Simon Gagne is slated to attend the Bruins' training camp on a tryout basis, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The 34-year-old last saw NHL action in 2012-13, but with the Bruins dealing with cap issues and looking to establish winger depth, they'll give Simon Gagne a training-camp look and a chance to prove that he's healthy enough to contribute this coming season.
