Nutivaara (undisclosed) produced an assist but only saw 7:01 of ice time in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.

Making his season debut, Nutivaara earned the primary helper on Eetu Luostarinen's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Nutivaara didn't see a shift after the second period, but there was no report of an injury during the game and no comment on his status afterward. The blueliner missed large chunks of last season due to injuries, and he's only reached 80 games played once in his five full seasons.
