Lightning's Ryan Callahan: Suffers apparent shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Callahan exited Thursday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes in third period due to an apparent shoulder injury, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Callahan suffered his injury when he crashed into the boards while tied up with Arizona's Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The veteran forward was clearly in pain as he headed to the locker room, and he was unable to return to the contest. Coach Jon Cooper didn't have a definite update on Callahan's status following Thursday's match, but he was able to tell reporters "This one might be longer than day-to-day," Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports. Tampa Bay should release another update on Callahan's condition Friday.

Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Stellar in emergency duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Osweiler completed 12 of 17 passes for 194 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts. He also rushed three times for 17 yards and another score and completed a two-point conversion pass.

Osweiler came on in relief of Trevor Siemian (shoulder) in the first quarter and directed an 11-play, 75-yard scoring drive on his second possession, which he capped off with an 18-yard scoring scamper. The former second-round pick subsequently led marches of 79 and 67 yards that culminated in touchdown passes to Cody Latimer and Jeff Heuerman, respectively. Thursday's appearance was arguably the 27-year-old's best of 2017, and with news that Siemian is expected to miss the last two games of the season with his injury, Osweiler will have a chance to make positive impression heading into the offseason.

Blue Jackets' Zach Werenski: Scores, adds helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Werenski recorded a goal, an assist, five shots and two hits through 24:11 of ice time (3:03 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

Somewhat quietly, Werenski is up to 10 goals for the campaign, which is also one more than he scored through 78 games last season. If there were any worries about a potential sophomore slump, the 20-year-old defenseman has quieted them in a hurry, and he should be confidently locked into seasonal lineups moving forward.

Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Ends 20-game run without multi-point showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wennberg recorded two assists and a plus-3 rating through 17:50 of ice time (2:16 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

After improving his point total in consecutive campaigns entering 2017-18, Wennberg's hit a wall this year. He's registered just a two goals and 11 assists through 26 games, so last season's 59 points are likely out of reach for the 23-year-old center. Additionally, Wennberg isn't a high-volume shooter, so even with a potential scoring uptick, he's probably never going to be a strong contributor in the goal or shot columns.

Blue Jackets' Artemi Panarin: Piles on two more assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panarin recorded two assists and four shots during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

This was the third multi-point showing through the past seven contests for the Russian winger, and the offensive surge has gone to the tune of two goals, 10 assists and 22 shots. With positive regression likely still ahead of Panarin's 7.8 shooting percentage, it wouldn't be shocking to see him start piling up a few more tallies over the coming weeks.
