Dubinsky has never been suspended before, but Saturday's ruling doesn't come as a huge surprise, as the 29-year-old forward has a long history of altercations with Crosby, which makes Friday's incident appear more malicious than it probably would have otherwise. Dubinsky will miss Saturday's matchup with the Blues, but will be eligible to return to action Tuesday against Montreal.
Tomas Jurco has been recalled from the Griffins of the AHL.
Jurco had been down in the minors on a conditioning stint, but now the speedy winger appears ready to roll ahead of Sunday's home tilt against the Panthers.
Frankie Hammond was promoted to the 53-man roster Saturday.
Hammond has been on the Chiefs' practice squad, but with De'Anthony Thomas out Sunday against Buffalo, he'll join the active roster to serve as the fifth receiver. The Florida product saw time in all 16 games for Kansas City last season, catching four passes on 12 targets for 45 yards.
Jeff Zatkoff will be in goal as Saturday's home starter against the Oilers.
Zatkoff has only made three starts this season, as Marc-Andre Fleury is the undisputed starter for the Pens. But Zatkoff has done well in limited time, allowing five goals on 68 shots, good for a .926 save percentage.
Rishard Matthews (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Greg Likens of Miami Dolphins .com reports.
The nature of the illness is unclear, but it's apparently serious enough to jeopardize Matthews' status for Sunday's game. The Nevada product is coming off of his least-productive game of the season, as he hauled in just one catch on three targets for 15 yards against the Cowboys. If he's held out, the likes of Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and possibly DeVante Parker could see increased targets.
