The Blackhawks are "actively shopping" defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Hjalmarsson, a 25-year-old stay-at-home defenseman, has two more years left on his contract that calls for a $3.5 million cap hit, but he could draw decent interest for teams looking for a defensive-minded blueliner and good shot-blocker. The re-signing of Johnny Oduya and growth of Nick Leddy has made Hjalmarsson more expendable as the team seeks to free up some cap space in order to possibly make a bigger splash this offseason. Chicago is also said to be willing to move veteran rearguard Steve Montador as well.

Ivan Provorov only needed one shift to put the Flyers past the Blackhawks on Saturday.

The 19-year-old phenom scored twice in 31 seconds early in the second period to put the Flyers up 2-1, and they'd go on to win 3-1. Provorov is now up to three goals and 11 points in 26 games this season.
Dec 3 - 6:55 PM

Mark Scheifele will be held out of Saturday's match with the Blues due to a lower-body injury.

He is questionable to play on Sunday as well. Alexander Burmistrov will replace him in the lineup. Consider Scheifele day-to-day for now.
Dec 3 - 6:46 PM

Corey Crawford will miss two-to-three weeks after undergoing an emergency appendectomy on Saturday morning.

That goodness for modern medicine. Expect Scott Darling to see the bulk of the starts with Crawford out. He should return by Christmas.
Dec 3 - 4:19 PM

Darnell Nurse will be lost to the Oilers "long-term" due to a lower body injury.

Well that's not good news. In his second full season in the bigs, the 21-year-old was blossoming well. Nurse posted five points along with 17 PIMs, 25 blocks, and 60 hits.
Dec 3 - 1:37 PM

Teddy Purcell has been placed on waivers by the Kings.

And thus a dreadful season for Purcell takes another sour turn. The 31-year-old winger has been hampered by poor health and ineffective play all season. He posted just a pair of helpers in 12 games. Purcell carries a $1.6 hit to the cap, and the Kings will be spared just over half of it should he go unclaimed and sent to the AHL.
Dec 3 - 12:32 PM

Corey Crawford (illness) won't play in Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Scott Darling will get the start in his place. Crawford is at the arena in Philadelphia, but he isn't feeling well enough to suit up as the team's backup. The Hawks are now scrambling to find themselves a backup for this afternoon's game. The Chicago Tribune mentioned that goalie coach Jimmy Waite could be an option to backup Darling. Crawford is day-to-day.
Dec 3 - 12:06 PM

Joe Thornton assisted on both of San Jose's goals on Friday.

Thornton now has 1,354 career points, giving him sole possession of 25th place on the all-time list ahead of Brendan Shanahan. Thornton's gotten that far through his ability to perform like a star player deep into his 30s. He's reached the 60-point mark in 15 campaigns and the 70-point milestone in 12 seasons.

The NHLPA has rejected an NHL proposal where the league would agree to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in exchange for a three-year extension to the CBA.

NHLPA executive director Don Fehr still hopes to work out a deal that would allow the players to participate in the Olympics, but not on those terms. If the players had agreed to the proposal, then the existing CBA would have been extended to 2025. Part of the NHL's hesitation to participate in the Olympics stemmed from the idea that the IIHF and IOC wouldn't cover costs of insurance, accommodation, and travel that could run up to $10 million. However, IIHF president Rene Fasel recently suggested that those costs could be covered for the NHL. Still, Olympic participate means suspending the NHL temporarily during the heart of the season and putting star players at risk of injury outside of NHL games. NHL players have participated in the last five Olympics though.

Chad Johnson will get his ninth start over the last 11 games on Friday against the Wild.

Over his last eight starts the veteran underdog has posted a 6-2 record with three shutouts and 12 goals against, giving him a beastly .951 save percentage. Ride the wave.
Dec 2 - 6:17 PM

Carter Hutton will be the St. Louis Blues' goalie on Saturday.

Hutton is making his first start since Nov. 23. He has a 2.98 GAA and .891 save percentage in seven games this season.
Dec 2 - 4:25 PM

Robin Lehner (hip) will get the nod on Saturday.

Lehner didn't dress for Thursday's game due to the ailment. He has a 2.40 GAA and .921 save percentage in 16 contests this season.
