Josh Brook
Canadiens' Josh Brook: Undergoes surgery Friday
Josh Brook, D, MON
9/22/2017
News: Brook underwent wrist surgery Friday and is expected to be sidelined for three months.

Brooks, a 2017 second-round pick, is only 18-years-old, so he's likely still a few seasons away from making his debut with the big club. Once healthy, the 6-foot-1 blueliner will probably be returned to his WHL club.

Avalanche's Sergei Boikov: Out indefinitely

News: Boikov is out indefinitely with a dislocated shoulder, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Boikov probably wasn't going to make Colorado's Opening Night roster this season, but this injury will set the young blueliner's development back a bit. Once healthy, the 2015 sixth-round pick will likely report to AHL San Antonio.

Tyson Barrie
Avalanche's Tyson Barrie: Ticketed for preseason action
Tyson Barrie, D, COL
9/22/2017
News: Barrie (leg) is slated to play in a preseason contest or two this weekend, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

Barrie has been sidelined for a while due to a laceration to his leg suffered during the IIHF Championships in May, but it appears he's finally ready to put that behind him. Now healthy, he will attempt to improve on a slightly down 2016 campaign, when he notched 38 points (seven goals, 31 assists) over 74 contests.

Erik Burgdoerfer
Senators' Erik Burgdoerfer: Waived by Ottawa
Erik Burgdoerfer, D, OTT
9/22/2017
News: The Senators placed Burgdoerfer on waivers Friday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Ottawa is stacked at defense, so Burgdoerfer was never considered to be a serious contender for an Opening Night roster spot. The 28-year-old American will probably remain in the minors for the entirety of the 2017-18 season.

Patrick Sieloff
Senators' Patrick Sieloff: Placed on waivers
Patrick Sieloff, D, OTT
9/22/2017
News: The Senators waived Sieloff on Friday Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

The Senators have a ton of depth at defense, so this move was expected. The 2012 second-round pick will likely spend the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign with AHL Belleville.

Mark Alt
Flyers' Mark Alt: Waived by team
Mark Alt, D, PHI
9/22/2017
News: Alt was placed on waivers Friday by the Flyers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Alt made his NHL debut for Philadelphia in 2014-15 but hasn't been able to work his way back into an NHL contest since. A product of the University of Minnesota, the 25-year-old logged a mere 40 outings for the Phantoms last season in which he tallied one goals and 10 helpers. The defenseman re-signed with the Flyers for another year over the summer and will have to prove himself worthy of a long-term deal if he wants to stick around any further.

Analysis: 

T.J. Brennan
Flyers' T.J. Brennan: Waived for reassignment
T.J. Brennan, D, PHI
9/22/2017
News: Brennan was waived by the Flyers on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sportsreports.

Brennan racked up an impressive 60 points in 76 outings last year and should be on coach Dave Hakstol's short list of potential call-ups this season. Assuming the 28-year-old clears waivers -- which is by no means guaranteed given his productivity -- the former second-round pick will return to AHL Lehigh Valley for the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Chris Casto
Golden Knights' Chris Casto: Waived by Vegas
Chris Casto, D, LV
9/22/2017
News: Casto was waived by the Golden Knights on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The Golden Knights are extremely deep at defense, so Casto was never expected to secure a spot on the team's Opening Night roster. He'll likely spend the entirety of the 2017-18 season in the minors.

Analysis: 

Will O'Neill
Flyers' Will O'Neill: On waiver wire
Will O'Neill, D, PHI
9/22/2017
News: O'Neill was placed on waivers by the Flyers on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sportsreports.

O'Neill needed an impressive training camp to land a spot on the Opening Night roster, so it shouldn't come as a surprise he was waived for purposes of reassignment. The 29-year-old was limited to just 57 outings for AHL Lehigh Valley last year which saw him failed to crack the 35-point threshold for the first time since the 2012-13 campaign. If he can stay healthy, O'Neill could earn himself a call-up in the near future.

Analysis: 

John Ramage
Blue Jackets' John Ramage: Suffers hamstring injury
John Ramage, D, CLB
9/22/2017
News: Ramage injured his hamstring and is expected to be sidelined 2-to-4 weeks, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic Clevelandreports.

Ramage failed to crack the game-day lineup for the Blue Jackets last season, instead spending the entire year with AHL Cleveland where he registered four goals and 21 helpers. The University of Wisconsin product has just two NHL contests under his belt and was likely a long shot for a spot on the 23-man roster. Once given the all clear, the 26-year-old will almost certainly be reassigned to the minors.
