  • Dan Renouf D | DET

    Red Wings' Dan Renouf: Promoted from AHL Grand Rapids

    Renouf was recalled from the minors Monday.

    With Marc Staal entering the league's COVID-19 protocols and Gustav Lindstrom (lower body) dealing with an injury, the Wings may need Renouf to jump into the lineup versus Nashville on Tuesday. In his lone NHL game this year, the Ontario native garnered one hit and a plus-2 rating in 13:03 of ice time.

  • Ben Bishop G | DAL

    Stars' Ben Bishop: Slated for conditioning assignment

    Bishop (knee) is expected to join AHL Texas on a conditioning assignment soon, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The minor-league Stars are in action versus AHL Chicago on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, so there could be plenty of opportunities for Bishop to play. How the netminder fits into Dallas' goal plan moving forward remains to be seen but he should be in the mix for at least a share of the workload once deemed fully fit.

  • Marc Staal D | DET

    Red Wings' Marc Staal: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Staal was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Staal has garnered just one goal and three assists in 22 appearances for the Wings this season while averaging just 16:14 of ice time. With the veteran defenseman unavailable. Danny DeKeyser figures to jump back into the lineup for the first time since No.v 20 versus Arizona.

  • Canadiens' Laurent Dauphin: Called up from minors

    Dauphin was promoted from AHL Laval on Monday.

    Dauphin hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2018-19 when he appeared in one game for the Coyotes. With the Rocket this year, the 2013 second-round pick has racked up 11 goals in 18 contests plus another five helpers. With Tyler Toffoli (upper body) unavailable, Dauphin will likely challenge the likes of Cedric Paquette for a spot in the lineup.

  • Tyler Toffoli RW | MON

    Canadiens' Tyler Toffoli: Being evaluated for upper-body issue

    Toffoli will not be at practice Monday due to an upper-body injury and is expected to undergo continuing evaluation.

    Based on the timeline provided by the team, Toffoli figures to be out of action for at least the club's next matchup versus the Lightning on Tuesday. With Toffoli unavailable, Jonathan Drouin could be in the mix for a top-six role while Cedric Paquette gets back into the lineup.

  • John Moore D | BOS

    Bruins' John Moore: Recalled from AHL Providence

    Moore was called up from the minors Monday, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.

    In nine AHL contests this season, Moore has racked up one goal and four helpers. With 538 games of NHL experience, it would seem the veteran has the inside track over Jack Ahcan for a spot in the lineup if Charlie McAvoy (illness) is unable to play versus Vancouver on Wednesday.

  • Jack Ahcan D | BOS

    Bruins' Jack Ahcan: Brought up from minors

    Ahcan was elevated from AHL Providence on Monday, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.

    Ahcan was in action versus the Lightning on Saturday, in which he tallied two shots and one hit in 15:31 of ice time. The Bruins also recalled John Moore, so both defensemen could be candidates to step into the lineup if Charlie McAvoy (illness) remains unavailable versus Vancouver on Wednesday.

  • Olli Juolevi D | FLA

    Panthers' Olli Juolevi: Recalled from assignment

    Juolevi (undisclosed) was brought up from his conditioning stint in AHL Charlotte on Monday.

    Juolevi has yet to get into action for the Panthers this season due to his undisclosed injury but has logged three games with the Checkers during a pair of conditioning assignments. Barring any setbacks, the 23-year-old defender could be in the mix to crack Florida's lineup during its upcoming three-game road trip.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Hathaway (COVID-19) has entered the COVID-19 protocols and will be unavailable for Monday's game against the Ducks, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Hathaway joins Nic Dowd and Trevor Van Riemsdyk on the list of Washington players now unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols. The 30-year-old winger has been an invaluable depth player for Washington with seven goals, nine points and 94 hits in 25 games and will need two negative tests before returning as early as Friday's showdown against arch-rival Pittsburgh.

  • Martin Jones G | PHI

    Flyers' Martin Jones: In goal Monday

    Jones will get the starting nod against Colorado at home Monday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    After making a relief appearance for the Lightning on Sunday, Jones will still get the start for the second game of the club's back-to-back Monday. The veteran netminder has underwhelmed of late, as he is 0-3-1 with a 3.77 GAA in his last five contests.
