Latest Updates

 
12/28/2014

Kari Lehtonen, G, DAL

Kari Lehtonen

Stars' Lehtonen To Draw Start Vs. Blues

News: Kari Lehtonen will be in the crease Saturday versus the Blues, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Kari Lehtonen owns a 10-4-2 record and 1.99 GAA for his career against the Blues, but that can probably be thrown out the window given the netminder's vexing inconsistency this season. He's followed up strong outings with horrible ones with regularity, and with the Stars coming off a three-day holiday break, it's difficult to know what to expect from Lehtonen. It's probably best for fantasy owners to keep the goalie on their bench Saturday if less risky alternatives exist.

12/28/2014

Viktor Fasth, G, EDM

Viktor Fasth

Oilers' Fasth To Start Saturday

News: Viktor Fasth will get the start in goal Saturday against the Flames, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Fantasy players should avoid Viktor Fasth, and any Edmonton netminder, in just about any format at this point, as the team has lost 19 of its last 20 games and the high save totals are likely not enough to make up for the damage caused in the ratio categories. Fasth is an abysmal 2-8-2 on the season, with an equally dreadful 3.29 GAA and .888 save percentage.

12/28/2014

Shawn Thornton, RW, FLA

Shawn Thornton

Panthers' Thornton Doesn't Skate Saturday

News: Shawn Thornton (groin) was unable to practice Saturday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Coach Gerard Gallant said earlier in the week that Shawn Thornton would begin skating after the Christmas break, but that failed to come to fruition Saturday. It will only push back his return date further, making it unlikely that Thornton suits up again until after the New Year.

12/28/2014

Braden Holtby, G, WAS

Braden Holtby

Caps' Holtby Set To Start Saturday

News: Braden Holtby was the first goaltender off the ice at practice and will receive the goal Saturday against the Penguins, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby allowed four goals on 27 shots in a losing effort against the Rangers on Tuesday, leaving a sour taste in his mouth before the NHL went on break for the holidays. The three days to rest up should have provided the 25-year-old netminder with some valuable time off, and fantasy owners should expect Holtby to be fresh and ready to go Saturday. Holtby is 15-8-5 on the season with a 2.30 GAA and a .917 save percentage.

12/28/2014

Jaden Schwartz, LW, STL

Jaden Schwartz

Blues' Schwartz (Foot) Could Skate Soon

News: Jaden Schwartz (foot) could resume skating in the next few days.
Analysis: The Blues haven't been able to discern a timetable for Jaden Schwartz's recovery from the broken foot, but coach Ken Hitchcock said one should become available once Schwartz starts skating. Even if that comes to fruition within the next week, Schwartz would probably need to practice for several more days before an activation would be considered.

12/28/2014

Carl Gunnarsson, D, STL

Carl Gunnarsson

Blues' Gunnarsson (Concussion) Skates Saturday

News: Carl Gunnarsson (concussion) skated with the team at Saturday's morning session.
Analysis: While Carl Gunnarsson won't suit up for Saturday's game with the Stars, coach Ken Hitchcock noted that the blueliner is now being viewed as day-to-day. Since he's been sidelined since Dec. 6, he may need another full practice or two to get his conditioning up to par, but a return to the lineup at some point next week would seem realistic.

12/28/2014

Michael Hutchinson, G, WPG

Michael Hutchinson

Jets' Hutchinson To Start Saturday

News: Michael Hutchinson will get the start in net Saturday against the Wild, Shane Hnidy of TSN reports.
Analysis: While head coach Paul Maurice claims the decision to start Michael Hutchinson in consecutive games was made weeks ago based on the Jets' schedule arrangement, it may indicate that the Jets have decided to make Hutchinson their featured goaltender, with Ondrej Pavelec taking on a more complementary role going forward. It's still too early to tell for certain, but the fact that this is the first time a Jets goaltender has made back-to-back starts since late-November is certainly telling. Hutchinson leads the league both in GAA (1.67) and save percentage (.944) and boasts an 8-2-2 record.

12/28/2014

Mikhail Grigorenko, C, BUF

Mikhail Grigorenko

Sabres Bring Back Grigorenko

News: Mikhail Grigorenko was recalled from AHL Rochester on Saturday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The Sabres will only get a few of their injured forwards back in time for Saturday's game against the Islanders, leaving a lineup spot open for Mikhail Grigorenko. The former first-round pick has one point in his previous four games with the Sabres, but did collect three helpers in his most recent game with Rochester.

12/28/2014

Brad Richards, C, CHI

Brad Richards

Chicago's Richards To Sit Again Saturday

News: Brad Richards (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Avalanche, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Brad Richards didn't travel with the team to Colorado, but should start skating on his own back in Chicago at some point over the weekend. Coach Joel Quenneville seemed optimistic that Richards -- who will miss his third straight game -- would be available for Monday's match with Nashville, but he'll first need to partake with the team at morning skate before that materializes.

12/28/2014

Michal Rozsival, D, CHI

Michal Rozsival

Blackhawks' Rozsival Out Saturday

News: Michal Rozsival (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Avalanche, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Michal Rozsival was forced out of Tuesday's game against the Jets with the injury and was unable to take part in Saturday's morning skate, indicating he's still feeling the effects of the injury. Tim Erixon will take his spot on Chicago's third defensive pairing.

6:49 PM

Rasmus Ristolainen, D, BUF

Rasmus Ristolainen

Sabres' Ristolainen Leaves With Injury

News: Rasmus Ristolainen left Saturday's game against the Islanders with an undisclosed injury and will not return, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: No word yet on the nature or severity of the injury. The Sabres are off Monday before returning to action Monday at Ottawa.

6:13 PM

Antti Raanta, G, CHI

Antti Raanta

Hawks' Raanta On The Bench Saturday

News: Antti Raanta will be on the bench on Saturday as the Blackhawks go with Corey Crawford to start against the Avalanche, CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: Despite Antti Raanta coming in relief for Crawford in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Jets, there is still no doubt that Crawford is still the Blackhawks' number one goalie. Unless Crawford gets injured or pulls another performance like he had against the Jets, Raanta might not see the ice on either January 8 or 9 when the Blackhawks have a back-to-back scenario. Raanta carries a 6-2-0 record, 1.73 GAA and .944 save percentage.

5:00 PM

Cam Atkinson, RW, CLB

Cam Atkinson

Jackets' Atkinson Leaves Saturday With Injury

News: Cam Atkinson left Saturday's game against the Bruins with an upper-body injury and will not return, Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Cam Atkinson took a shot from Matt Bartkowski during his second shift and exited shortly thereafter. Consider Atkinson day-to-day and questionable to play Wednesday against Minnesota until more information becomes available.

4:56 PM

Matt Nieto, LW, SJ

Matt Nieto

Sharks' Nieto (Ankle) Out Saturday

News: Matt Nieto (ankle) did not make the trip to Los Angeles for Saturday's game against the Kings, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: Matt Nieto seems to be making steady progress in his recovery from the ankle injury, but he's not ready just yet. Michael Haley, who was recalled Friday, will step in against Los Angeles, while Nieto looks ahead to a potential return Tuesday against Vancouver.

4:50 PM

Robert Bortuzzo, D, PIT

Robert Bortuzzo

Pens' Bortuzzo Playing Saturday

News: Robert Bortuzzo (upper body) will play Saturday against the Capitals, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: As expected, Robert Bortuzzo is playing Saturday against Washington for the first time since Dec. 13 after being activated from IR earlier in the day. Brian Dumoulin was scratched.

4:46 PM

Niklas Kronwall, D, DET

Niklas Kronwall

Wings' Kronwall Active Saturday

News: Niklas Kronwall (upper body) is active for Saturday's game against the Senators, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Niklas Kronwall was forced from Tuesday's game with the upper-body injury but made it through morning skate without issue and was thus given the green light to play against Ottawa.

4:01 PM

Darcy Kuemper, G, MIN

Darcy Kuemper

Wild's Kuemper Sick But Active Saturday

News: Darcy Kuemper is indeed sick but will be able to back up John Curry on Saturday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Darcy Kuemper just turned the page on a stomach bug last week but has fallen back under the weather, opening the door for Curry to start against the Jets. Evidently, he's feeling well enough to serve as the backup, but it's uncertain whether Kuemper will be ready to return to the starting role Monday.

3:48 PM

Niklas Svedberg, G, BOS

Niklas Svedberg

Bruins Start Svedberg

News: Niklas Svedberg will start in net for Boston on Saturday against Columbus.
Analysis: Niklas Svedberg will square off against Curtis McElhinney on Saturday, with Bruins' No. 1 netminder Tuukka Rask thus a candidate to start Monday night's game against Detroit.

3:47 PM

John Curry, G, MIN

John Curry

Wild's Curry Starting Saturday

News: John Curry will start in goal Saturday against the Jets, Elliote Friedman of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Darcy Kuemper was expected to get the nod Saturday but it will instead by John Curry, who stopped 38 shots in a win for AHL Iowa on Friday. A reason for Kuemper's scratch has not been provided by the team, but Friedman suggested he may be ill.

3:43 PM

Kyle Palmieri, RW, ANA

Kyle Palmieri

Ducks' Palmieri (Shoulder) Still 1-2 Weeks Away

News: Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said Saturday that Kyle Palmieri (shoulder) is still a week or two away from returning, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Kyle Palmieri said last week that he was eyeing a return Saturday against the Coyotes, but it seems he hasn't progressed quite as expected. Look for Emerson Etem to head back down to the AHL once Palmieri is cleared to return.

3:31 PM

Francois Beauchemin, D, ANA

Francois Beauchemin

Ducks' Beauchemin (Finger) Returning Saturday

News: Francois Beauchemin (finger) will play Saturday against the Coyotes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: Coach Bruce Boudreau confirmed that Francois Beauchemin, who has assisted on five goals in 18 games this season, will return against Arizona after missing more than a month with a broken finger. His minutes may be scaled back a bit in his first couple games back, but the 34-year-old winger has been practicing for a couple weeks now and should be close to 100 percent.

3:25 PM

Corey Perry, RW, ANA

Corey Perry

Ducks' Perry Not Expected To Play Sunday

News: Corey Perry (knee) is not expected to play Sunday against the Canucks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: While Corey Perry has been skating on his own for over a week, he did not travel with the team to Arizona for Saturday's game and it doesn't sound like he'll be ready to play Sunday when the Ducks host the Canucks. Perry has been out since Dec. 5 with a sprained left knee.

3:18 PM

Frederik Andersen, G, ANA

Frederik Andersen

Ducks' Andersen Starting Saturday

News: Frederik Andersen will start in goal Saturday against the Coyotes, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Analysis: The 25-year-old Frederik Andersen can make it 10 wins in 11 December outings with a victory over the Coyotes, a team he limited to three goals on 52 shots in two prior meetings this season. Look for Ilya Bryzgalov to get the start against the Canucks on Sunday in the second half of a back-to-back set.

3:08 PM

Niklas Backstrom, G, MIN

Niklas Backstrom

Wild's Backstrom (Illness) Placed On IR

News: Niklas Backstrom (illness) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: With Niklas Backstrom still under the weather, the Wild went ahead and brought John Curry up to provide some short-term depth behind Darcy Kuemper. Backstrom will be eligible to return Monday against Winnipeg, but it's uncertain if he'll be ready by that time.

2:15 PM

Bobby Sanguinetti, D, VAN

Bobby Sanguinetti

Canucks Recall Sanguinetti

News: Bobby Sanguinetti was recalled from AHL Utica on Saturday.
Analysis: The Canucks aren't believed to be dealing with any injuries among the six defensemen on the active roster, but with the team away from Vancouver the next two games, it seems likely Bobby Sanguinetti was added just as insurance. He'll probably be reassigned to the minors following Tuesday's tilt with the Sharks.
