    Sabres' Taylor Fedun: Questionable for Monday
    40m ago

    Taylor Fedun is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Capitals.

    Although the exact nature of the injury remains unclear, it likely occurred during Saturday's contest against the Bruins. If the blueliner is unable to go Monday, it may force the Buffalo Sabres to recall another defenseman following the news that Josh Gorges (foot) will miss multiple weeks.

    Sabres' Josh Gorges: To miss weeks with foot fracture
    1h ago

    Dan Bylsma stated Sunday that Josh Gorges suffered a displaced foot fracture in Thursday's game against the Rangers and will miss multiple weeks.

    Gorges doesn't exactly embody the offensive production of a rosterable blueliner, owning just one point through 23 contests this season.While his absence will be felt by the Buffalo Sabres , it shouldn't impact too much in the fantasy realm. Brendan Guhle, who made his NHL debut Saturday, should continue to draw into the lineup for the time being, while Gorges' status should be updated again when he closes in on a return.

    Kings' Peter Budaj: Yields four goals in shootout loss versus Montreal
    1h ago

    Peter Budaj allowed four goals in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Canadiens on Sunday.

    He stop 26 of 30 attempts versus Montreal but wasn't able to come up with key saves in the shootout. After a stellar start to the season, Budaj has yielded nine goals in his last seven periods. He was pulled from his start Thursday, and Budaj didn't do much better Sunday, though, two of the four goals he allowed came on the power play. He is 12-7-2 with a 2.23 GAA and .909 save percentage.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Struggles in victory versus Kings
    1h ago

    Carey Price made 27 stops but allowed four goals in a shootout victory over the Kings on Sunday.

    Montreal was uncharacteristically poor on the penalty kill Sunday, as Los Angeles went 2-for-4 on the power play. Despite those struggles, this was still just the fourth time this season where Price allowed four goals, and he still was able to beat Los Angeles with a couple shootout saves. Price is 14-3-1 with a .942 save percentage and 1.82 GAA.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Exits, won't return Sunday
    1h ago

    Alex Galchenyuk departed Sunday's game with an undisclosed issue and will not return, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The youngster has been a spark plug for the offense this season, scoring on 20 percent of his shot attempts and tallying 23 points through 24 contests. It would be a huge loss for the Habs should the issue turn out to cost him extended time, but the team should update Galchenyuk's status again in the coming days.

    Max Pacioretty recorded a pair of goals and an assist in Montreal's 5-4 victory over the Kings on Sunday.

    The Montreal forward opened the scoring 2:30 into the first, and then tallied two power-play points (a goal and an assist) in the second period. This was Pacioretty's first multi-point game since Nov. 12, and his first two-goal game of the season. He has seven scores and 18 points in 25 games.

    Jets' Mark Scheifele: Ruled out again Sunday
    2h ago

    Mark Scheifele (undisclosed) will not dress for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks.

    Scheifele was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup due to the undisclosed issue, and the star forward will sit out again Sunday because of it. A star forward and core member of the power play, the Winnipeg Jets will be without some firepower as they take on some tough competition, while fantasy owners will be hard pressed to find a replacement that can produce nearly as well. Scheifele's next chance to return to the lineup now comes Tuesday when Winnipeg hosts Detroit.

    Blackhawks' Jonathan Toews: Remains out Sunday
    2h ago

    Jonathan Toews (back) will not play Sunday and coach Quenneville stated he will not skate the next few days because his injury "isn't getting any better," Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

    Toews was placed on injured reserve Friday, suggesting his injury hadn't improved to the point where he was ready to retake the ice. The team should update his status further when he returns to practice, but he can essentially be ruled out for Sunday and Tuesday, while Friday's game against the Rangers could be a stretch as well.

    Elias Lindholm (lower body) will not play Sunday's game against the Lightning.

    Despite the benign tone surrounding Lindholm's injury, the 22-year-old will miss his second consecutive game Sunday. He has until Wednesday when the Carolina Hurricanes travel to Anaheim to get healthy, so expect an update on his status closer to the start of that game.

    Jonathan Marchessault is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

    Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel explains that Paul Thompson's recall from AHL Springfield was in relation to this injury, so Marchessault's availability for Monday's game in Boston remains murky at best. It's unclear how the 25-year-old winger sustained the injury, but it doesn't seem like it will keep him out for too long.

  • Filip Forsberg NSH C
    Predators' Filip Forsberg: Fails to contribute in OT loss to Devils
    7h ago

    Filip Forsberg skated a season-high 23:20 Saturday against the Devils, but came away with zero points in a 5-4 overtime loss.

    Forsberg has now failed to crack the scoresheet in three consecutive games, however we consider this just a blip on the radar for the talented young Swede. He continues to skate on the Preds' top line and sees plenty of power-play time, averaging just under three minutes per game. With a talented supporting cast that includes the likes of P.K. Subban and Ryan Johansen, it shouldn't be long before Forsberg once again starts to pile up the points -- he had 11 points in 14 games in November, which puts him roughly on pace for another 60-65 point season, much like last year and the year before. Stick with him -- he'll be fine.

    Lightning's Jonathan Drouin: Sidelined Sunday with undisclosed issue
    3h ago

    Jonathan Drouin will not play Sunday due to an undisclosed issue.

    The announcement came unexpectedly close to puck drop Sunday and will leave the Bolts a little shorthanded on the front end. J.T. Brown will likely reenter the lineup Sunday after sitting out Saturday's contest against the Capitals, while Drouin will aim to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's showdown with the Canucks.

    Canadiens' Alexander Radulov: Suiting up Sunday
    5h ago

    Alexander Radulov (eye) is in the lineup for Sunday afternoon's game in Los Angeles, Guillaume Lefrancois of La Presse reports.

    Radulov will not miss any game for the Habs after sustaining the injury Friday. The 30-year-old winger is an important cog in Montreal's machine, as he averages 2:26 of ice time on the power play and averages 1.9 shots on goal per game.

    Flames' Johnny Gaudreau: Expected to return Sunday
    6h ago

    Johnny Gaudreau (finger) says he is ready to play and is expected to draw into the lineup for Sunday night's matchup against the Ducks.

    We will be sure to update Gaudreau's status if he is scratched prior to puck drop in Calgary, but all signs point to the young star returning Sunday. Johnny Hockey is way ahead of schedule in his rehab from finger surgery and could be a big boost for a Calgary offense that ranks 26th in the league with 2.26 goals per game.

  • Jordan Eberle EDM RW
    Oilers' Jordan Eberle: Dishes out trio of assists in victory
    8h ago

    Jordan Eberle had three assists in Saturday's overtime win over the Ducks.

    Aside from a few minor droughts, Eberle has been a consistent producer this season, notching 20 points in 26 games. The 26-year-old is skating in a top-six role and playing on the power play, so there's no reason to think that his production won't continue. Eberle is a very talented offensive player and with the Edmonton Oilers sitting fourth in the Western Conference, the former 34-goal-scorer should be an automatic roll every game.

    Patrick Sharp is being troubled by concussion symptoms again, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    We now have a better idea of what is ailing the 34-year-old winger. Coach Lindy Ruff clarified in Heika's report that its unclear if the symptoms Sharp is dealing with now are related to the concussion that kept him out of 14 games earlier this season. Either way, he'll be out for at least a week.

    Jason Garrison (knee) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Hurricanes.

    Not much light was shed on the Tampa Bay Lightning 's lineup Sunday prior to the opening faceoff, but it appears the knee issue that held him out of Saturday's skate will also keep him from dressing for a second straight contest. More information about a potential timeline for return should surface in the coming days, but his next chance to dress arrives Thursday against the Canucks.

    Flyers' Radko Gudas: Remains out Sunday

    Radko Gudas (illness) will not be in the lineup for a second straight game Sunday, Steve Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Brandon Manning replaced Gudas in Saturday's lineup after sitting out three straight contests due to concussion and the team will go with the same lineup that went Saturday. Even when healthy, the 26-year-old blueliner generally impacts the game more physically than anything else. While he does own seven points in 19 contests this season, his biggest value comes in leagues that include hits (82), blocked shots (50) and more commonly, penalty minutes (21). He will reportedly rejoin the lineup Tuesday when the Philadelphia Flyers host Florida.

    Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Snaps pointless drought with assist vs. Devils
    7h ago

    Mattias Ekholm saw his six-game pointless streak come to an end Saturday after registering an assist during the Preds' 5-4 OT loss to the Devils.

    It's been a frustrating season for fantasy owners who drafted Ekholm expecting another 30-plus point season from him, similar to last year. However, with just six points in 23 games so far, he's only on pace for something in the low 20's, which just won't cut it in most leagues. The good news is, he's still averaging more than 20 minutes in ice time per game -- with about two minutes coming on the power play -- and he's also being paired up with P.K. Subban at even strength. Bottom line, Ekholm is being put in a very good position to start piling up the points -- he just has to execute. For now, show a little more patience with him before looking for a viable fantasy alternative.

    Howard landed on injured reserve Nov. 27 and was handed a timetable of 10-14 days. Approximately a week in, he's beginning to progress towards a return to the lineup, but no firm date has been set at this point. The team should continue to update the veteran netminder's status as he draws closer to a return.

After sitting out against the Blues on Saturday, the Winnipeg Jets will once again turn to their promising young netminder. Hellebuyck's road splits aren't very favorable heading into a matchup with a high-powered Blackhawks club, but Chicago will also be without Jonathan Toews (back) for the contest.

The 21-year-old netminder has performed well when given the opportunity, owning a 1-1-0 record with 1.02 GAA and .965 save percentage in two starts this season. He'll face a tough task Sunday against a Philadelphia club netting three goals per game on the road this season.
