Ducks' Chris Stewart: Out 4-8 weeks with broken jaw
Chris Stewart, RW, ANA
8:57 PM
News: Stewart's medical examination revealed a fractured jaw and he is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Stewart was struck on the side of the face during a fight in Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets and was subsequently sent back to Anaheim for further evaluation. X-rays revealed a displaced fracture on one side of his jaw and he will have his jaw wired shut. He will miss at least one month, meaning there could be more available ice time for the recently recalled Nick Ritchie.

The 29-year-old appears set to return to the fourth line, having skated alongside Jared McCann and Jake Virtanen during warmups, after missing Wednesday's game due to illness. Dorsett has only nine points (3G, 6A) on the season and has logged all of nine penalty minutes since the calendar turned to 2016.

Cal Clutterbuck
Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Out Saturday with illness
Cal Clutterbuck, RW, NYI
6:53 PM
News: Clutterbuck has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes.

This news came out about 15 minutes before the puck dropped, so owners may not have had time to get him out of lineups Saturday. Consider him day-to-day with the illness, and questionable for Monday's game against the Red Wings.

Marian Gaborik
Kings' Marian Gaborik: Placed on injured reserve
Marian Gaborik, RW, LA
6:27 PM
News: Gaborik (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Gaborik is on his way back to Los Angeles, where he'll undergo further evaluation for the lower-body injury he sustained in Friday evening's tilt against the Rangers. The 33-year-old winger will now at least miss the Kings' next three games, and could be out even longer, depending on what his evaluation reveals. Expect an update on Gaborik's status following his meeting with Los Angeles' medical staff.

Brendan Leipsic
Maple Leafs' Brendan Leipsic: Joins Leafs upon emergency call-up
Brendan Leipsic, LW, TOR
6:17 PM
News: Leipsic was called up to the Leafs on emergency conditions Saturday.

The Leafs decided to place Jared Cowen (hip) and Josh Leivo (upper body) on injured reserve Saturday, which had left the team thin at the forward position before recalling Leipsic and Jeremy Morin. Best known for his energy and quickness, Leipsic has turned in 14 goals and 20 assists with the Marlies through 47 games this campaign. However, he has yet to debut in the NHL.

Analysis: 

Travis Moen
Stars' Travis Moen: Lands on injured reserve
Travis Moen, LW, DAL
6:17 PM
News: Moen (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Moen is dealing with a lower-body injury that will now at least cost him the Stars' next four games, as he won't be eligible to return to action until next Saturday against Boston. The Stars will likely recall a forward from their AHL affiliate to round out their depth up front while Moen is sidelined.

Analysis: 

Jeremy Morin
Maple Leafs' Jeremy Morin: Summoned from minors Saturday
Jeremy Morin, LW, CHI
6:03 PM
News: Morin was called up from the minors on an emergency basis Saturday.

The Maple Leafs have a contest Saturday night and winger Josh Leivo (upper body) just landed on injured reserve, hence the emergency call-up for Morin, a 24-year-old native of New York. Prior to his ascension to the parent club, Morin produced two goals and six points in 11 games with the minor-league affiliate Marlies.

Analysis: 

Josh Leivo
Maple Leafs' Josh Leivo: Ends up on IR
Josh Leivo, LW, TOR
5:55 PM
News: Leivo (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve, TSN's Mark Masters reports.

Leivo is an inexperienced winger, albeit one with a scorer's touch. He's lit the lamp twice in six appearances with the Leafs this campaign, despite averaging 10:58 of ice time per contest. Toronto scores at a rate of 2.30 goals per game, third worst in the entire league, so the Buds will miss Leivo in the bottom-six group. The Maple Leafs have called up Brendan Leipsic and Jeremy Morin from the minors to shore up the depth at the forward spot.

Analysis: 

Rick Nash
Rangers' Rick Nash: Downgraded to week-to-week with leg injury
Rick Nash, LW, NYR
3:21 PM
News: Nash (leg) has been downgraded and is now week-to-week, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Nash reportedly is dealing with a bone bruise and is effectively ruled out for at least one week, at which point he'll be reevaluated. The sniper's been out for the past eight games due to the ailment but the Blueshirts have managed to win five of those contests without him.
