    • Erik Gudbranson VAN D
      Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Game-time call
      2m ago

      Gudbranson (upper body) will be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's clash with Edmonton, Kevin Woodley of NHL.com reports.

      Gudbranson was expected to be in the lineup versus the Flyers on Saturday, but missed the game due to his upper-body issue. Whether the defender will play Sunday's matchup with the Oilers won't be determined until warm-ups, however, if he does sit out, Michael Del Zotto or Alex Biega figures to take his spot on the blue line.

    • Linus Ullmark BUF G
      Sabres' Linus Ullmark: Turns aside 35 shots
      9m ago

      Ullmark made 35-of-37 saves in Sunday's 4-2 victory against the Bruins.

      Ullmark was terrific Sunday, dropping his season GAA under the 3.00 mark. After allowing 13 goals on 100 shots in his last three starts, this was a much-needed performance for the 25-year-old Swede. Buffalo has another set of back-to-back games next weekend, so Ullmark should draw in for another start in the near future.

      Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: In goal Sunday
      10m ago

      Markstrom will get the starting nod at home versus the Oilers on Sunday, Kevin Woodley of NHL.com reports.

      Markstrom will be between the pipes on back-to-back nights after stopping 31 of 32 shots against the Flyers on Saturday. The netminder is riding a four-game winning streak, but will face the difficult task of shutting down Connor McDavid and company.

    • Tuukka Rask BOS G
      Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Coughs up three goals
      12m ago

      Rask allowed three goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Buffalo.

      The Sabres beat him just once in the first two periods, but Rask let the game get away from him a bit during the final frame. He's allowed three goals in four of his last five outings, posting a 2-3-0 record during that span. Rask's 2.57 GAA is his highest since the 2010-11 campaign, but his .915 save percentage is pretty similar to the numbers he's registered over the last several seasons.

    • Torey Krug BOS D
      Bruins' Torey Krug: Pots goal in loss
      19m ago

      Krug scored a goal and recorded four shots on net in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Buffalo.

      Krug has just three goals on the year but they've all come in his last five outings. After missing the first 11 games of the season with an ankle injury, the Michigan native has 18 points in 22 contests. Despite the missed time, Krug is still on pace to reach the 50-point mark for the third straight season.

    • Jason Zucker MIN LW
      Wild's Jason Zucker: Should play Tuesday
      27m ago

      Zucker (illness) is expected to play against San Jose on Sunday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

      Zucker missed just one game while recovering from his ailment. The California native has been disappointing for fantasy owners this season. He's scored just nine goals and 19 points in 31 games after racking up 64 points in a breakout 2017-18 campaign.

      Wild's Mikko Koivu: Expected to play Tuesday
      30m ago

      Koive (knee) is expected to suit up for Tuesday's contest against the Sharks, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

      The 35-year-old Finn hasn't played since Dec. 6, missing four games during his brief IR stint. Koivu was solid on the offensive end prior to the injury, scoring four goals and 21 points. Once healthy, Koivu should continue to be a consistent fantasy asset.

      Wild's Luke Kunin: Sent back to AHL
      39m ago

      Kunin was demoted to AHL Iowa on Sunday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

      Kunin posted seven shots on goal during his three NHL appearances this season but was held off the scoresheet. The rookie forward has managed eight goals and 15 points in 21 AHL contests this season. Kunin will likely be recalled again when the Wild get into some injury trouble.

    • Jack Eichel BUF C
      Sabres' Jack Eichel: Tallies four points
      1h ago

      Eichel scored two goals, dished out two assists and recorded six shots on goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over Boston.

      In his first three seasons, Eichel's point total rose each year, scoring 56, 57 and 64 points, respectively. Just 34 games into his fourth campaign, the star center already has 14 goals and 45 points, on pace to set new career highs in just about every offensive category. Eichel has been the driving force behind the Sabres reemergence as playoff contenders and he's become an elite fantasy stud in the process.

      Flames' Alan Quine: Surprising sniper in rout
      3h ago

      Quine scored two goals, one on the power play, in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Blues.

      The tally with the man advantage was the final goal of the game, and the 25-year-old isn't suddenly a regular member of the Flames' power-play units. Still, Quine has taken full advantage of his limited ice time since being called up from AHL Stockton, scoring three goals and four points in five games, and he's playing well enough to stick around even after the Calgary roster gets a bit healthier.

      Bergeron (rib/sternoclavicular) could practice with his teammates as soon as Wednesday.

      Once Bergeron is able to practice fully, coach Bruce Cassidy suggested that it's possible his team's top center could return to game action shortly thereafter. With that in mind, the earliest we might see Bergeron in the Boston lineup would be Thursday night against the Ducks.

      Hurricanes' Clark Bishop: Sent to Charlotte
      4h ago

      Bishop was demoted to AHL Charlotte on Sunday.

      The 22-year-old has suited up for 15 games with Carolina this season with just a goal and two points to show for it. He will likely continue splitting time between the two levels for most of the season.

      Sabres' Sam Reinhart: Point streak reaches double digits
      1h ago

      Reinhart notched three assists and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 4-2 win over Boston.

      Reinhart has tallied five goals and 16 points during his active 10-game scoring streak, giving him 32 points in 34 games. He's on pace to surpass last year's total of 50 points -- his career best -- by a sizable margin. The top line of Reinhart, Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner has been tremendous this season, both for the Sabres and fantasy owners alike.

    • Jeff Skinner BUF LW
      Sabres' Jeff Skinner: Pockets two goals
      1h ago

      Skinner scored two goals in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.

      Skinner is up to 24 goals on the year, matching his 2017-18 total in 50 fewer games. The 26-year-old is in the middle of a career year just in time to earn a terrific payday this coming offseason. Skinner has also registered a plus-21 rating, his first positive rating since his rookie campaign.

      Lightning's Mathieu Joseph: Out Sunday, placed on IR
      3h ago

      Joseph (lower body) will not suit up Sunday after being placed on injured reserve, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

      The IR designation will rule Joseph out for the next few games. Assuming the team backdates his IR status, the earliest he can return would be Saturday in Edmonton. The rookie winger has nine goals, 13 points and 56 hits in 32 games this season.

      3h ago

      Lindholm scored a short-handed goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Sunday's 7-2 rout of the Blues.

      The 24-year-old hadn't hit the scoresheet in his last three games, but Lindholm wiped away any thoughts of a prolonged slump with this performance. The goal tied his previous career high with 17, and after never scoring more than 45 points in a season with Carolina, he already has 37 points through 34 games in his first campaign with Calgary.

      Gaudreau scored two goals and an assist in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Blues.

      His helper came with the man advantage, one of three power-play goals the Flames scored on the afternoon. It's Gaudreau's sixth multi-point performance in his last eight games, and the scoring surge has pushed him up to a stellar 15 goals and 45 points through 34 games.

      Sabres' Rasmus Dahlin: Dishes two helpers
      1h ago

      Dahlin picked up a pair of assists in a 4-2 victory over Boston on Sunday.

      Dahlin has notched a goal and four assists in his last two games, bringing him to 19 points in 34 games to start his NHL career. The 18-year-old Swede is also logging over 20 minutes of ice time per game. He should continue scoring at a decent clip while playing a strong two-way game all season.

    • Trevor van Riemsdyk CAR D
      Hurricanes' Trevor van Riemsdyk: Fantasy value almost non-existent
      2h ago

      Van Riemsdyk was held off the scoresheet for the seventh consecutive game in Sunday's 3-0 win against the Coyotes.

      The 27-year-old defender saw ice time of just 15:14, the lowest among all Hurricanes blueliners. Furthermore, he posted zeros in all peripheral stat categories, too (hits, shots on goal, blocked shots), which is to say he is simply not producing on any fantasy level right now. Bottom line, it's hard to make any case for owning van Riemsdyk in even the deepest of formats.

      Flames' Mark Giordano: Extends point streak to five games
      3h ago

      Giordano scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 7-2 rout of the Blues.

      The veteran defenseman's found the scoresheet in five straight games, racking up three goals and 11 points over that blistering stretch. Giordano didn't hit the 40-point mark in either of the last two seasons, but he's already up to six goals and 35 points through 32 games in 2018-19 as he looks to shatter his previous career high of 56 points.

      De Haan picked up two assists while adding four shots, five hits, a blocked shot and a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.

      It's the first multi-point game of the season for de Haan, who impressed in all three zones during the victory. The 27-year-old only has one goal and seven points through 32 games, however, and his track record with the Islanders before joining the 'Canes in the offseason doesn't suggest an offensive surge is coming any time soon.

      It's the second time in his last four starts that Allen hasn't made it to the second period. The 28-year-old has seen his save percentage sink to .897 as a result, but with Chad Johnson now in Anaheim and only an unproven rookie behind him on the depth chart, the Blues will likely give Allen every chance to work through his troubles.
