Cory Conacher potted a goal and also registered an assist in his NHL debut Saturday night.

Conacher was the AHL's MVP and Rookie of the Year after recording 39 goals, 80 points and 114 penalty minutes in 75 games last season. He's definitely worth a look in 14-team leagues if he keeps a gig in the show as a top-six forward.

Ryan Johansen and his agent, Kurt Overhardt, have reportedly lowered his contrac demands.

The report says the latest offer was set at two years at $4.7 million per year. Overhardt has now reduced their original asking price by more than $2 million per season. The Blue Jackets probably want Johansen's demands to lower a bit more before they start meaningful negotiations.

Mikael Backlund wasn't able to skate on Monday because of an abdominal strain.

The injury has prevented him from participating in training camp and there are indications that it could be worse than initially thought. Coach Bob Hartley said, "I don't have any news to tell you, but I'm worried." Backlund is still being listed as day-to-day.

Jonathan Drouin missed Tampa Bay’s scrimmage on Sunday as he is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Drouin is believed to be dealing with a hand injury. The 19-year-old is listed as day-to-day. The injury shouldn’t affect Drouin’s availability to play in preseason games. "He’ll be in exhibition games," said Lightning head coach Jon Cooper. "I’m not sure about scrimmages, but in exhibition games for sure." The Lightning play their first preseason game at home against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.

Steven Stamkos missed Sunday’s scrimmage and is questionable to play in Monday’s scrimmage.

Stamkos broke his leg last November and had to remove a screw in his right tibia bone last month. "We’ve got a plan for him and we don’t want to [rush him]," said Lightning head coach Jon Cooper. "We want to make sure that when we are getting down to the nuts and bolts of our team that he is going to be able to play. He’s able to play now, we just want to see other guys. We know what he can do." It sounds like Tampa Bay is just being cautious with their superstar.

Jarrett Stoll hopes to play in at least one game during the preseason.

Stoll had surgery during the off-season to repair a chip and labrum tear in his hip. The 32-year-old believes he suffered the injury during last year’s Western Conference final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Bobby Ryan had his "bell rung" during Sunday's scrimmage.

Ryan isn't experiencing concussion symptoms, but won't play in Monday's preseason game as a precaution. As we mentioned before, the stakes are low right now so it's completely feasible that the Senators are simply deciding to err heavily on the side of caution. After all, they have nothing to lose by keeping Ryan out of the preseason contest. That being said, head injuries are tricky and sometimes a player's outlook will be optimistic initially, but turn sour quickly. Hopefully that won't be the case here.

Bobby Ryan has suffered an undisclosed injury during Ottawa's scrimmage on Sunday.

Ryan exited the game in the second period and will be held out of the remainder of the contest as a precaution. This scrimmage means very little to Ottawa and even less to Ryan, whose position on the team isn't in question. With that in mind, it wouldn't be shocking to discover they decided to shut him down over the mildest of injuries. Unfortunately, we don't know that for a fact as Ottawa didn't specify the nature of Ryan's problem and sometimes the word precautionary gets thrown around for injuries that turn out to be significant. With that in mind, it's worth keeping an eye on this situation, even if it's too early to worry.

Ryan Johansen has gotten "several" KHL offers over the last two months, according to his agent.

CSKA Moscow GM Sergei Fedorov recently denied a report that he made Johansen a one-year, $5 million offer, but it wouldn't be surprising if other KHL teams had made an attempt to sign Johansen. The 22-year-old forward isn't likely to bolt to the KHL despite his impasse with Columbus.

Roberto Luongo is excited to see how the Florida Panthers will progress this season.

"I’m excited to be here at this time of year. I’m definitely excited about the team; [I] like the veteran players we brought in," said Luongo. "Last year, when I got here, I was just excited to be here. I didn’t care what the team’s record was. I knew I was coming in for the future, and I’m excited to see how we progress." After having been acquired from the Vancouver Canucks last season, Luongo is entering his first training camp with the Panthers since 2005. The 35-year-old went 25-23-7 last season with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.
