    • Jeff Glass TOR G
      Ducks' Jeff Glass: Traded to Ducks' affiliate
      13m ago

      Glass was dealt to the Ducks' AHL affiliate in a trade with Toronto on Monday.

      Glass is unlikely to spend time with the big club despite backup Ryan Miller's current injury issues, but those same issues likely prompted the Ducks to bolster their goaltending depth in the AHL should an extensive call-up of current AHL starter Jared Coreau prove necessary.

    • Cal Petersen LA G
      Kings' Cal Petersen: Set to face Sabres on Tuesday
      23m ago

      Petersen will make his first start of December on Tuesday against Buffalo.

      Since Jonathan Quick inserted himself back in the fold, Petersen has seen his playing time drop significantly. The 24-year-old will get an opportunity Tuesday against the Sabres, his first start since Nov. 30. Buffalo, since winning 10 in a row, is 0-3-2 in its last five games.

    • Calle Rosen TOR D
      Maple Leafs' Calle Rosen: Secures extension
      40m ago

      Rosen signed a two-year contract extension with Toronto on Monday.

      While Rosen's deal actually comes with a reduced salary ($750,000 versus $925,000), it is a one-way deal that will ensure he gets to spend some time in the NHL. By agreeing to terms with Rosen, the Leafs may have tipped their hand in regards to Martin Marincin's future with the club, as the 26-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2018-19 campaign.

      45m ago

      Schnarr agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Arizona on Monday.

      Schnarr has already racked up a career-high 40 points with OHL Guelph this season in just 26 games. If the Ontario native continues to light it up in juniors, he could get an extended look at training camp next season.

    • Craig Anderson OTT G
      Senators' Craig Anderson: Tending twine in Music City
      1h ago

      Anderson will start Tuesday's road game versus the Predators.

      It will be Anderson's 27th start of the season and 28th appearance, putting him second in the league behind Marc-Andre Fleury (28 starts). The 37-year-old has been heavily utilized this year, and many would say that Ottawa must do a better job managing the veteran netminder's workload moving forward, or risk burning him out before season's end. Nashville is coming off consecutive losses but remains atop the Central Division with 39 points.

    • Carl Gunnarsson STL D
      Blues' Carl Gunnarsson: Won't play Tuesday
      1h ago

      Gunnarsson (upper body) will miss Tuesday's matchup with Florida, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

      Gunnarsson will be sidelined for his 12th consecutive contest due to his upper-body issue. The Swede's prolonged absence is testing the Blues' blue line depth as Alex Pietrangelo (hand) and Joel Edmundson (upper body) are also on the shelf. The club has not provided a clear timeframe for when Gunnarsson might be cleared to play, so fantasy owners will have to take a wait and see approach.

      Avalanche's Alex Kerfoot: Dealing with minor injury
      2h ago

      Kerfoot is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, Rick Sadowski of Hockeybuzz.com reports.

      The 24-year-old is pointless over his last seven games, but Kerfoot has been a pleasant surprise this season with four goals and 18 points in 30 games. It's been a rough stretch for him recently, and he could now miss an extended period with an undisclosed injury. He'll benefit from Colorado having an extra day off between games.

      Kamenev (shoulder) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

      Kamenev is set to be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing should surgery, so this move was expected. Colorado has yet to release any details regarding a potential timetable for the Russian pivot's recovery, but it wouldn't be surprising if he's forced to miss the rest of the season.

      Golden Knights' Paul Stastny: Full practice participant
      2h ago

      Stastny (lower body) has been cleared for contact and was in attendance at practice Tuesday in a regular sweater, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

      Stastny rotated in for line rushes with the rest of the Golden Knights' third line (Oscar Lindberg, Ryan Carpenter and Tomas Nosek), which could be an indication of where he fits into the lineup once given the all-clear. The Quebec native has logged just three games for Vegas since signing with the club in the offseason, but appears to be nearing a return to the lineup.

      Turris (upper body) could be back in the lineup soon after telling Adam Vingan of The Athletic, "I'd say I'm pretty close."

      Turris took part in Monday's practice session sporting a non-contact sweater, per Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site, which means he likely won't be ready in time for Tuesday's matchup with Ottawa. The center -- who has missed the previous seven games -- should slot back into a second-line role once given the all-clear to play.

      Canucks' Adam Gaudette: Set to miss clash with Jackets
      2h ago

      Gaudette (illness) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Columbus.

      Gaudette will miss his second straight outing due to his illness, which will force Markus Granlund into the third-line center spot again. Prior to his absence, the 21-year-old Gaudette was stuck in a five-game pointless streak, during which his minutes dropped to 8:08 of ice time per game. If the Massachusetts native can't figure out his game soon, he could find himself down in the minors.

      Oshie (concussion) will be in the lineup Tuesday to take on the Red Wings, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

      Oshie was taken off injured reserve earlier in the day and has been confirmed as a participant for Tuesday's home contest against Detroit. A concussion has kept him out of the lineup since Nov. 14 but after missing 11 games, Oshie has shown enough in practice to get the green light for game action. The 31-year-old has nine goals and 14 points in 18 games this season.

      Sabres' Patrik Berglund: Unavailable against Kings
      2h ago

      Berglund is under the weather and won't suit up versus Los Angeles on Tuesday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

      Berglund is pointless in his previous 10 outings while averaging 12:59 of ice time. The center's absence from the scoresheet could cause him to miss the 20-point mark for the first time since the 2015-16 campaign, when he was limited to just 42 games due to injury. In the 30-year-old's stead, Zemgus Girgenson will slot into a fourth-line role.

      Blues' Jaden Schwartz: Back in action
      3h ago

      Schwartz (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

      The Blues and fantasy owners will both be happy to have Schwartz back in their lineups, as he's been productive when healthy this season, notching two goals and nine points in 15 appearances. The 26-year-old winger is expected to return to a prominent role Tuesday, skating on the Blues' second line and second power-play unit against the Panthers.

      Panthers' Anthony Greco: Surfaces with top club

      The Panthers summoned the services of Greco from the team's AHL Springfield affiliate Tuesday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

      Greco was unable to snag a bottom-six role with the Panthers out of training camp, but he responded to his demotion with 23 points -- 12 goals and 11 assists -- through 24 games. The 25-year-old winger will provide the Panthers with some depth up front on the upcoming two-game road trip with Nick Bjugstad (upper body) already ruled out and only 12 other healthy forwards on the roster.

      Perreault (undisclosed) will be in the lineup versus Chicago on Tuesday, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

      Perreault missed Monday's practice session, but will still suit up Tuesday. The Quebec native may be bogged down in a 13-game goal drought, but has racked up four assists in his last five games. The winger should continue to log minutes on the second power-play unit, giving him solid mid-range fantasy value.

    • Jake DeBrusk BOS RW

      DeBrusk (undisclosed) remains day-to-day in advance of Tuesday night's game against the Coyotes.

      Meanwhile, coach Bruce Cassidy relayed that DeBrusk is seeing specialists Tuesday, after which the team should have a better idea of the young forward's status heading into Friday's game against the Penguins. DeBrusk, who last suited up Dec. 6, has logged 10 goals (second on the Bruins) and 12 points in 28 games to date. In the absence of both DeBrusk and center Patrice Bergeron (ribs), the Bruins have loaded up their top line with the team's top healthy forwards: Brad Marchand, David Krejci and David Pastrnak.

      Tyszka (concussion) -- who was injured during training camp -- is back with WHL Seattle and has racked up 11 PIM in two games.

      Tyszka was a long shot to make the Habs' roster even if he had stayed healthy. The blueliner will look to improve upon his 40-point campaign with the Thunderbirds from last year and could see some AHL action following the completion of his junior season.

      Juulsen (face) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

      Juulsen has missed Montreal's last nine games due to a facial fracture, but all signs point to him returning to action Tuesday against the Wild. The 21-year-old has been a solid middle-pairing contributor for the Canadiens this campaign, notching one goal and five points while posting a plus-3 rating in 17 appearances, but his lack of offensive upside keeps him safely off the radar in all but the deepest of fantasy formats.

      Vaakanainen could be nearing a return from his 21-game absence, but falling ill won't help his chances of playing soon. Even once given the green light to play, the defenseman could struggle to pry a spot in the lineup away from Steve Kampfer or John Moore.

      Varlamov has lost consecutive starts and his record sits at 10-7-3 with a 2.63 GAA and .918 save percentage. The Avalanche netminder will be in tough against an Edmonton team that's won six of its last seven games and gone 7-2-1 since Ken Hitchcock took over behind the bench.
