Blues GM Doug Armstrong has reportedly received a five-year contract extension.

That will take Armstrong through the 2017-18 campaign. He's overseen the Blues rebuilding effort, which took a big step forward last season when the team won the Central Division and earned the second seed. The Blues made it to the Western Conference Semifinals before being swept by the eventual Stanley Cup winners, the Los Angeles Kings. Now that their younger players have some postseason experience under their belt, the Blues could enjoy a longer playoff run in 2013.

Andre Burakovsky will spend two games with the Hershey Bears before returning to the Capitals.

Coach Barry Trotz wants to get Burakovsky some playing time after he had been a healthy scratch in five of the last six games. Burakovsky will get top six minutes with the Bears. He is not going to play for Sweden in the World Juniors as Trotz said he is the team's 13th forward and they may need him. "One of the reasons we’re not sending him to the World Junior is he’s right now, we sort of have him as our 13th forward," Trotz said. "But at the same time, we’ve got some people that are hurt, there’s mumps going around, there’s a lot of reasons where you don’t want to commit to having him go, then you need him down the road, not be able to get him. It wouldn’t be fair to another kid who could get named to the team, then we have to pull him back from there. Once he goes there, you can’t [retrieve] him until [Jan.] 6, I believe. That was one of our concerns. We’ve got a lot of games in the next two weeks."

The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled Derrick Pouliot from the minors.

Pouliot is probably the Penguins best prospect in the AHL and the defenseman has seven goals and 20 points in 23 games thus far. With Christian Ehrhoff questionable and Olli Maatta and Robert Bortuzzo out of action, the Penguins are in need of blueline help. He is worth picking up in keeper pools and should see some ice time on the second power play.

Jimmy Howard will not play Sunday against Colorado.

He sustained a lower-body injury that the Red Wings don't believe is serious in Friday's loss to New Jersey. Consider Howard day-to-day, although there is a good chance he will sit until after the Christmas break.

Ryan Johansen has a goal and three assists in his last 10 games.

When you throw in a minus-eight rating, it's hard to believe that the Blue Jackets are 7-2-1 in that span. Johansen has nine goals and 28 points in 31 games with a minus-12 rating but his lack of training camp time due to contract negotiations, may finally be hitting him.

Corey Perry (knee) is hoping to start skating on the weekend according to coach Bruce Boudreau.

Don't expect to see Perry back before Christmas and just how long after Christmas is still up in the air but he is getting close. The stud winger has had a tough go of it lately with the knee injury on December 5 and picking up the mumps earlier. Nevertheless, Perry has 14 goals and 22 points in 23 games and remains a top-five fantasy player when healthy.

Petr Mrazek was called in on relief to make 23 saves in the Red Wings 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders on Friday.

Jimmy Howard was pulled in the first period due to a lower body injury so Mrazek had to step in. "I thought Mrazek was fantastic coming off the bench," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. Babcock failed to give any update on Jimmy Howard however so we don't know what the immediate future holds for the 22 year-old. Detroit seems to be downplaying the severity of Howard’s issue, yet it’s troublesome enough that the team sent Xavier Ouellet down to the minors in exchange for Tom McCollum in case. Stay tuned for more updates.

Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves on 31 shots in the Ducks' 6-2 blowout loss to Ottawa on Friday.

Bryzgalov was making his first start in relief of Federik Andersen for the Ducks since signing as a free agent back on December 9. The Ducks were playing the second half of a back-to-back scenario and finishing up a five game Eastern road trip so you have to think the entire team played into this loss. Still, he may not get a lot of starts with results like these.

Ryan Getzlaf scored twice in the Ducks 6-2 loss to Ottawa on Friday.

The Ducks captain continued his torrid points streak with his 11th and 12th on the year. Getzlaf now has points in five straight games and ten of his last 11. He ranks fourth in the NHL in points with 37 and doesn't need superstar winger Corey Perry to get his points it seems. He is again one of the most valuable players in NHL fantasy hockey.
Dec 20 - 12:23 AM

Kyle Turris scored a highlight reel shorthanded goal and added an assist in the Senators 6-2 win over Anaheim on Friday.

Turris made a sweet move to beat two Duck defenders to score his seventh of the year in the Sens blowout win. Mike Hoffman also added two goals for Ottawa who scored the first four goals of this game to make it a blowout. Turris was one of five Senator players to collect two points on the night. Bobby Ryan had two assists against his old team and Mika Zibanejad added a goal and a helper as well.
Dec 20 - 12:09 AM

Ondrej Palat (lower body) will play against New Jersey on Friday.

Palat missed four straight games due to the ailment. Tyler Johnson is questionable with a stomach virus though, so Palat's return might not correspond with a healthy player being moved off of one of Tampa Bay's top two lines. Palat has nine goals and 20 points in 30 games in 2014-15.

Mirco Mueller has been loaned to Team Switzerland for the World Juniors.

Mueller has spent six of San Jose's last nine games in the press box. This will give him a chance to get plenty of minutes against the world's top talent in his age bracket.
