The Columbus Blue Jackets have announced that Ryan Murray will undergo shoulder surgery in the next 2-3 weeks and he is projected to miss about six months.

"It's been really disappointing," said Murray, who won't get to represent Canada at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships and will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season. "It's not the kind of news you want to hear, and it's going to be a long recovery time. But this surgery pretty much has to be done. But you gotta do what you gotta do, and I'm just going to rehab it, do the best job I can in the process and get it back to 100 percent as quickly as possible." Prior to the lockout, Murray was expected to challenge for a roster spot with the Blue Jackets as well, but now he'll have to wait until next year to get that chance.

Damon Severson (ankle) will be back in the Devils' lineup on Tuesday.

Severson hasn't played since Dec. 15 and he might be eased back into the lineup. To that end, the Devils are expected to dress seven blueliners. Forwards Michael Ryder and Martin Havlat will spend the game in the press box.

San Jose goalie Alex Stalock, who had been on a three-game losing streak, stopped 20 shots Monday night to record a 4-0 shutout over the visiting Montreal Canadiens.

The Sharks' backup netminder allowed 13 goals in his previous three starting appearances but improved his record Monday to 6-7-1. He also improved his goals-against average to 2.61 and his save percentage to .904. So is Stalock worthy of being added now to your fantasy team? Well, no. But don't disregard what he accomplished Monday. A shutout against a very good Montreal team and all-star goalie Carey Price certainly deserves at least a little respect. The shutout was Stalock's second of the season and fourth of his career.

Shortly after being acquired by the Sharks, Ben Smith contributed a goal and an assist in a 4-0 shutout of the visiting Montreal Canadiens in San Jose Monday night.

Smith was obtained on trade-deadline Monday by the Sharks from the Chicago Blackhawks for Andrew Desjardins. Then he went out and scored San Jose's first goal of the night at 6:51 of the first period and assisted on Matt Irwin's goal at 6:28 of the second period. Don't let Smith's San Jose debut fool you. As Rotoworld's Michael Finewax wrote on his trade deadline blog shortly after the Smith-Desjardins deal: "Smith will help out the Sharks' bottom-six forwards and is a good penalty killer who can score the occasional goal. Will help out but not much of a fantasy asset." Smith now has six goals and five assists on the season. Joe Pavelski also had a goal (32nd) and an assist (27th) for the Sharks. Patrick Marleau picked up his 15th goal of the season.

Star center Jonathan Toews notched three points in the Blackhawks' 5-2 victory over the visiting Carolina Hurricanes Monday night.

The Chicago captain scored his team's first two goals -- his second on a shorthanded shift 44 seconds into the second period -- to give him 21 on the season. He also produced his 32nd assist of the campaign on Marian Hossa's 18th goal. Brandon Saad (20th) and Marcus Kruger (sixth) also picked up goals for the winners.

Defenseman Keith Yandle turned in an effective debut with the New York Rangers Monday night as he and his new team defeated the visiting Nashville Predators 4-1.

Yandle, traded along with Chris Summers from Arizona Sunday for Anthony Duclair, John Moore, and two draft choices, logged 19:41 of ice time against the Preds and finished with a plus-three. Despite not having a chance to practice with the Rangers, Yandle made good decisions with the puck, got three shots on net and had one steal. He was given time alongside both Kevin Klein and Dan Boyle.

Mark Giordano will undergo surgery for a torn biceps tendon and he's out for the remainder of the season.

Flames GM Brad Treliving said that Giordano will require four-to-five months of recovery time. The Calgary captain is tied for second in the league in scoring among defensemen with 48 points in 61 games. The Flames will have to continue their hunt for a playoff spot without a key contributor.

Andre Burakovsky has been reassigned to the minors.

He is the odd-man out after the Capitals acquired Curtis Glencross from Calgary. Burakovsky, who has nine goals and 21 points in 48 games this season, will get plenty of playing time with Hershey. It's unclear how long he'll be down in the AHL.
Mar 2 - 3:54 PM

James Wisniewski has been dealt to the Anaheim Ducks.

He was sent to Anaheim along with Detroit's third-round pick for Rene Bourque, William Karlsson and a second-round pick in 2015. Wisniewski has generated eight goals and 29 points in 56 games for the Jackets this year.
Mar 2 - 3:40 PM

Minnesota has landed Chris Stewart from Buffalo for a second-round pick in 2017.

Stewart has 11 goals, 25 points and 63 penalty minutes in 61 games this season. The pending unrestricted free agent was expected to be moved by the Sabres and according to sources Buffalo is picking up half of Stewart's salary.
Mar 2 - 3:10 PM

Cam Atkinson has agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract extension.

Atkinson has 13 goals and 25 points in 58 games in 2014-15. That's a substantial jump from his previous average annual salary of $1.15 million, but that's not surprising given that the 25-year-old has established himself as an important part of the Blue Jackets. He would have been eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer.
Mar 2 - 2:57 PM

Alex Stalock will start for San Jose on Monday night against Montreal.

He has allowed 13 goals in his past three appearances and unsurprisingly all those games have been losses. Stalock has a 5-7-1 record this year to go with an .899 save percentage and a 2.85 goals-against average.
