    Bruins' John Moore: Returning Wednesday
    2h ago

    Moore, who recently underwent what coach Bruce Cassidy described as a "small procedure" for a lower-body injury, is slated to return to practice Wednesday, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.

    Per the report, the issue addressed by the minor procedure dates back to training camp. Once Moore returns to the mix, he'll continue to serve as a spare blueliner for the Bruins. The 30-year-old has yet to make his season debut for the team.

  • Shayne Gostisbehere PHI D
    Flyers' Shayne Gostisbehere: Expected to debut Tuesday
    3h ago

    Gostisbehere (COVID-19) was activated and is expected to play Tuesday's game versus the Devils, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Gostisbehere tested positive for COVID-19 before Opening Night, but he's cleared the necessary protocols and will return to action Tuesday, bumping Erik Gustafsson from the lineup. The 27-year-old blueliner played just 42 games last season -- he often served as a healthy scratch -- and produced 12 points and 73 shots on net.

  • Scott Perunovich STL D
    Blues' Scott Perunovich: Called up to taxi squad
    4h ago

    Peruonivch was recalled from AHL Utica to the taxi squad Tuesday.

    Perunovich will add depth on the blue line during the Blues' four-game road trip, but he'll need to be promoted to the active roster before making his NHL debut. It's unclear if he'll crack the lineup, as the Blues seemed content in training camp to allow the undersized defenseman (5-9, 180) to develop in the minors. Nevertheless, the Hobey Baker winner is expected to make an impact with the Blues in the near future, so he could get a shot if injuries surface.

    Per coach Jeremy Colliton, Boqvist (COVID-19 protocols) will be sidelined for at least two weeks, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

    With Boqvist out long term, rookie blueliner Ian Mitchell should see an uptick in ice time for the foreseeable future, particularly on the power play. Boqvist, who's picked up three helpers through six games this campaign, will return to a top-four role whenever he's cleared to play.

    Devils' Scott Wedgewood: Set to start Tuesday
    1h ago

    Wedgewood will patrol the home crease in Tuesday's game versus the Flyers.

    After a rocky season debut, Wedgewood bounced back in a big way, sporting a 28-save shutout in Sunday's win over the Islanders. MacKenzie Blackwood is still in COVID-19 protocol, so Wedgewood will make a third straight start. He's in line for another tough matchup. The Flyers rank seventh in the league with 3.50 goals per game and 10th with a 31.0 power-play percentage.

  • Frederik Andersen TOR G
    Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Stopping pucks in Calgary
    2h ago

    Andersen will protect the road net in Tuesday's game versus the Flames, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    Andersen could end up handling a hefty workload for the time being, as Jack Campbell (leg) is expected to miss "weeks," and the Maple Leafs don't have another back-to-back set until Feb. 17. It's been an up and down start to the season for Andersen. He sports a 3-2-0 record to complement an .898 save percentage and a 2.81 GAA. The 31-year-old will have his hands full with the Flames, who average 3.25 goals per game (10th in the league).

  • Joseph Woll TOR G
    Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Joins taxi squad
    3h ago

    Woll was recalled to the taxi squad Tuesday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

    Jack Campbell (leg) will sit out for "weeks," so the Maple Leafs need a No. 3 netminder behind Frederik Andersen and Michael Hutchinson. Woll -- a 2016 third-round pick -- has begun his quarantine and should join team activities in about a week. The 22-year-old was solid over his three-year career at Boston College, but he posted an unimpressive .880 save percentage over 32 appearances with AHL Toronto last year.

    Maple Leafs' Jack Campbell: Faces lengthy absence
    3h ago

    Head coach Sheldon Keefe said Tuesday that Campbell (leg) will be out "weeks," Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Campbell suffered this injury during Sunday's 3-2 win over the Flames, which was his second straight victory to start the year. There's no clear timeline for his recovery, but Campbell likely will head to IR for the duration of his absence. In turn, veteran Michael Hutchinson will serve as Frederik Andersen's backup moving forward.

    4h ago

    Grubauer will defend the home net in Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Grubauer struggled in Sunday's loss to the Ducks, allowing two goals on just 14 shots. He was quite good in the four games that preceded that dud, recording a .931 save percentage and a 3-1-0 record. The 29-year-old has a solid opportunity to bounce back, as the Sharks rank 26th in the league with just 2.22 goals per game.
