If you are looking for a sleeper pick, Travis Zajac could be your man.

He is listed far down in Yahoo pools because he missed almost all of the 2011-12 season due to an achilles injury. However, he is fully healthy now and is set to center the Devils' top line, likely alongside Ilya Kovalchuk, and anchor the team's first power play. We wouldn't be surprised if he registered 40 points this season. Not bad for someone ranked 600 in Yahoo pre-draft rankings.

Matthew Nieto (ankle) will probably return to the Sharks' lineup on Tuesday.

Nieto was upbeat after Sunday's practice. "I'm ready. That was the first practice I actually had with the whole team in awhile," Nieto said. "It was good to get out there with all the guys and compete and do some battles. It's ready. Good to go." Sharks coach Todd McLellan wasn't ready to say beyond all doubt that Nieto would be available on Tuesday, but he's certainly aware of Nieto's feelings on the subject. Nieto hasn't played since Dec. 4.

Jaroslav Halak (lower body) will start on Monday.

It will be Halak's first game since Dec. 20. He has a 2.24 GAA and .919 save percentage in 24 contests in 2014-15.

Brian Elliott (knee) has been cleared by Blues doctors to return.

He participated in a full practice Sunday, but he won't jump back into the lineup yet. "We're going to start Marty (Monday), but our hope is that (Elliott) is ready here in the next couple of days," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We're hopeful that after (Blues goalie coach Jim Corsi) works with him today, he feels good and he's up and running and ready to go." The Blues plan to keep three goaltenders until Elliott is activated from injured reserve and he proves his knee is 100 percent.

Mikael Granlund (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Winnipeg, but suffered an upper-body injury in the contest. Granlund will be sidelined for at least a week due to the ailment.

Patrice Bergeron (undisclosed) is being listed as day-to-day.

He didn't practice on Sunday and it's unclear if he'll play in Monday's match against Detroit. Bergeron will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine his status. He saw three shifts in the third period of Saturday's game against Columbus before he was pulled for precautionary reasons.
Dec 29 - 7:27 AM

Evander Kane is slated to be re-evaluated to see if he'll play in Monday's game against Minnesota.

He blocked a shot late in Saturday's game versus the Wild and he missed Sunday's practice as a result. Patrice Cormier was called up from the minors, which means you should consider Kane day-to-day until the Jets update his status.
Dec 29 - 7:12 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced that Jonathan Bernier will miss Sunday's game against the Florida Panthers because of "flu-like symptoms."

The Maple Leafs say that it isn't the mumps, or at least hasn't been confirmed yet. There's no word regarding whether he's expected to miss an extended amount of time, but make adjustments for today.

With Calvin Pickard demoted and Reto Berra not impressing, the Colorado Avalanche expect to lean on Semyon Varlamov very heavily.

Colorado made a big investment in Berra via a trade, but apparently he's already lost favor. Varlamov, 26, is 5-6-5 with a .913 save percentage so far this season. The Russian netminder made all 26 stops in his return to action against the St. Louis Blues on Dec. 23.

It seems like Carolina Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal is just about certain to make his 2014-15 season debut on Monday, something he admitted to being "anxious" about.

This situation could be fluid, but for now, it looks like he's centering a line with his brother Eric Staal and Nathan Gerbe. That could be a line to watch if it has any staying power.

Brian Elliott is in fact on the ice and taking part in the Blues' full practice Sunday.

Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters this would be the case and it has come to pass. Elliott who has been out of action for the last month with a knee injury is moving closer to a return. When he is healthy enough to play it will be interesting to see what the Blues do with Martin Brodeur.
Dec 28 - 2:17 PM

More bad health-related news for the battered Pittsburgh Penguins: Patric Hornqvist is expected to miss a "few weeks" with a lower-body injury.

The 27-year-old has already dealt with a concussion in 2014-15, his first season with the Penguins. When healthy, Hornqvist has been a revelation, generating 13 goals and 29 points in 33 games. Here's hoping he can enjoy better health once 2015 rolls around.
