NHL players, including Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall, now wonder what the league will try to push through for a schedule should an agreement materialize this month.

There's fear that a schedule would be packed regularly with four games weekly and could send a wave of players to sick bay -- especially those who haven't been playing overseas during the lockout. "Any way you look at it, you'd have to play a lot of games," Kronwall said. "There'd obviously be a lot more games played each week. You'd also have an injury factor. You don't want to have guys going down, and then all of a sudden you're hurting the product you put on the ice. So I think you also have to be a little bit cautious." The shorter the season ends up being, the more likely it'll be limited to conference play -- but for a team like the Wings, with home games in the Eastern time zone but road games, outside of Columbus, all between one to three time zones away, that's not an advantage. "Of course, everyone wants to play as many games as possible, there's no doubt about that," Kronwall said. "But at the same time, you have to be. . .cautious."

Brian Boyle has been away from the Devils because of a type of cancer of the bone marrow.

New Jersey Devils Dr. Michael Farber said that Boyle's issue is treatable. He will take oral medication to treat the CML (chronic myeloid leukemia), which was caught early, and expects to be in the opening night lineup this season. We wish him the best and hope to see him playing on Oct. 7.

Roman Josi has been named the Predators' eighth captain in franchise history.

Josi is also the second Swiss-born captain in league history. He has led the Predators in ice time per game in each of the past three years. Josi accounted for 12 goals and 49 points in 72 matches last season. Nashville also announced that Ryan Ellis will serve as "associate captain," while Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Mattias Ekholm will be alternate captains.

Zach Sanford has a dislocated left shoulder that will require surgery.

Sanford will be sidelined for five to six months. He was injured just 15 minutes into the first practice of camp. Sanford had five points in 13 matches with the Blues last season.

Jay Bouwmeester's lower-body injury is a fractured left ankle.

He will be re-evaluated in three weeks, which means he will miss at least the remainder of training camp and the first week of the regular season. Bouwmeester was injured during a team scrimmage.

Colin White will be out of action for six-to-eight weeks after he suffered a broken left wrist on Monday night.

White was hurt blocking a shot in preseason action against Toronto and he underwent surgery Tuesday morning. He is slated to skate during his recovery to maintain his conditioning. It was expected that White would be able to claim a roster spot out of training camp because of Derick Brassard's shoulder injury, but now he'll miss the start of the regular season.

Nico Hischier scored in his first career preseason game as the Devils earned a 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals Monday night.

Hischier was taken with the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. While he might not have the same kind of impact that recent top picks Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews have had, Hischier obviously still has a lot of upside. He's a great pick in keeper leagues even if we would pencil him in for 40-50 points for the 2017-18 campaign. Kyle Palmieri, Stefan Noesen, and Mirco Mueller netted the Devils' other three goals. Nathan Walker found the back of the net for Washington.

Mikko Koivu has signed a two-year, $11 million contract extension with the Minnesota Wild.

Koivu is entering the final season of his seven-year, $47.25 million contract, so he's now locked up through the 2019-20 campaign. That means he'll be 37-years-old by the time his extension ends. In that context, the $5.5 million cap hit he'll receive during his new contract seems reasonable. There's obviously an element of risk there given his age, but he's solid offensively and a strong defensive center. He also means a lot to the organization as the only full-time captain the Wild have ever had and he's the franchise leader in both games played and points.

21-year-old Tyler Wong scored Las Vegas' first pre-season goal in franchise history on Sunday night, then added three more points in the 9-4 blowout over Vancouver.

Wong made sure Vegas lit the lamp in style for the first goal in Golden Knights history. Taking a stunning flip pass from Cody Glass that split the Canucks' defense, Wong stormed down the wing and lifted a backhander into the net for an early 1-0 lead. Wong ended the night with a hat trick and an assist, picking up right where he left off from his 109-point season in the WHL last year.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Jason Demers from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jamie McGinn.

Demers had nine goals and 28 points in 81 contests with Florida in 2016-17. He's got a shot at being a second pairing defenseman with the Coyotes. "We are very pleased to add Jason to our blueline corps," said Coyotes GM John Chayka. "Jason is a skilled right-handed shot defenseman who moves the puck well and has good offensive ability. He will be a great addition to our team." It's worth noting that the Panthers are also retaining 12.5% of Demers' annual $4.5 million cap hit.

Alexander Radulov was skating alongside Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn at practice on Sunday.

Well, we knew that was coming. New coach Ken Hitchcock has to make a decision as to whether Radulov is a fit with his two superstars. If he is, then Radulov becomes a very valuable fantasy commodity. Keep an eye on this situation going forward.

The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly hired Dean Lombardi.

Lombardi has been available for hire since he was let go by the Los Angeles Kings during the off-season. According to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, Lombardi will be working under Flyers GM Ron Hextall. Lombardi was the GM of the Kings when they won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. Of course, Hextall was Lombardi's assistant GM in Los Angeles.
