Tristan Jarry will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Jarry is getting the nod tonight because Matt Murray was between the pipes for last night's win over Carolina. The Pens backup netminder has a 10-4-2 record with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage this season.

Evander Kane will not be in Buffalo's lineup for Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Kane, who's a pending unrestricted free agent, will be moved before Monday's trade deadline, so the Sabres don't want to risk him suffering an injury. The 26-year-old has 20 goals and 20 assists in 61 games this season. Buffalo GM Jason Botteril should be able to land a solid return for his services from a contending team.

Mike Hoffman scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Trade winds have been swirling around Hoffman for a while, but that didn't stop him from producing this afternoon. His power-play tally at the 12:14 mark of the first period cut Philadelphia's lead to 2-1. The Sens forward also registered an assist on Matt Duchene's goal late in the third frame. Hoffman now has 17 goals and 41 points in 61 games this season. There's still a decent chance that he could be moved before Monday's trade deadline.

Brandon Manning picked up a goal and two assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Manning did all of his damage in the third period, as he registered the primary helpers on goal by Claude Giroux and Nolan Patrick before scoring the flukiest goal you've ever seen. Manning dumped the puck into Ottawa's end, the puck bounced off the corner boards before sliding right into the Senators net. The Flyers blue liner finished the game with a plus-3 rating, three shots on goal, three hits and four blocked shots in 18:04 of ice time. He's now accumulated five points in his last four games. He's up to six goals and 15 points in 47 games this season. Despite his recent surge in offensive production, Manning won't be worth adding in any fantasy format.

Brian Gionta could be close to signing a new contract in the NHL by Monday.

According to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun, there are two Eastern Conference teams that have shown interest in the veteran winger (the Boston Bruins might be one of them). Gionta hasn't played a game in the NHL this season, but he just captained Team USA at the Olympics. The 39-year-old had a respectable 15 goals and 35 points in 82 games with the Buffalo Sabres last season.

The New York Islanders have acquired Brandon Davidson from the Edmonton Oilers for a third-round draft pick in 2019.

The Oilers end up getting a a third-rounder for a player they acquired on waivers from Montreal earlier this season. Davidson has three goals, two assists and a minus-5 rating in 36 games with the Oilers and Canadiens. The 26-year-old will give the Islanders more depth on the back end. He'll likely serve as a fifth, sixth or seventh defenseman on any given night. Davidson doesn't need to be owned in any fantasy league.
Feb 24 - 2:03 PM

Jeff Carter (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Carter has been out of the lineup since he suffered the injury in a game against Montreal on Oct. 18. The 33-year-old has three assists in six games this season. Getting Carter back will give the Kings a big offensive boost.
Feb 24 - 1:56 PM

Tomas Plekanec will not play in Saturday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Plekanec is a pending unrestricted free agent on a bad team, which means there's a good chance he'll be moved before Monday's trade deadline. The Canadiens will sit him to make sure he doesn't get injured before a potential deal takes place. He has six goals and 24 points in 60 games this season.
Feb 24 - 12:35 PM

Chris Kreider played on the Rangers' top line Friday night in his return to action after missing 24 games following surgery to deal with a blood clot.

Kreider skated alongside Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich, and although he didn't register a point in the Rangers' 4-1 loss to Minnesota, he played a solid game. "I thought he brought us some good energy," Ranger coach Alain Vigneault said. "The speed that he brings, that take-away speed that he has where he can push the other team’s defense, it was there. You saw a young man there that was out for quite some time with a serious injury. He really worked his way back, and wanted to come back and help the team. It was good to see." Even with the Rangers bailing on the season, Kreider is still a fantasy asset.

The Ottawa Senators are reportedly looking to trade Johnny Oduya.

Oduya will not play in Saturday's matinee against the Flyers because the Senators don't want to risk him getting injured. The veteran blue liner has four goals, four assists and a plus-2 rating in 51 games this season. He'll likely fetch a mid-round draft pick. He's scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

William Karlsson scored a pair of goals in Friday's 6-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Karlsson's first goal tied the game at two at the 14:39 mark of the first period, while his second tally gave the Golden Knights a 3-2 advantage early in the second frame. He registered the primary assist on Jonathan Marchessault's power play marker that made it 4-2 for Vegas. Karlsson finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 17:16 of ice time. The 25-year-old has registered at least one point in nine of his last 10 games. He has an incredible 33 goals and 55 points in 61 games this season. Only Alex Ovechkin (36) and Evgeni Malkin (34) have more goals than Karlsson. He's been the biggest individual surprise of the season.
