Noah Juulsen is expected to replace Soucy in the lineup versus the Blackhawks.... See More ... See Less
Canucks' Mark Friedman: Sent on conditioning assigment

Friedman was struck up high by a puck in Wednesday's game versus the Avalanche and won't finish the contest.

Friedman (upper body) was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Tuesday, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.

Penguins' Mark Friedman: Remains sidelined
Friedman (upper body) won't play Thursday versus Edmonton, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.
Friedman will miss a fifth straight contest Thursday, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to return. Once cleared to play, Friedman will almost certainly continue to serve as a rotational, bottom-pairing option, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on his status. He's collected just one goal through 11 top-level appearances this year.... See More ... See Less

Friedman (upper body) will not be in action against the Islanders on Monday, Seth Rorabaugh of TribLive.com reports.
