Taylor Hall isn't expected to play on Tuesday due to a leg injury.

Hall took a shot to the leg during Monday's practice. He'll undergo further testing to determine the severity of the injury. He has 11 goals and 29 points in 41 contests in 2014-15. Look for Benoit Pouliot to temporarily assume Hall's place on Edmonton's first line.

Jiri Hudler is battling an illness on Tuesday.

Hudler is being regarded as a game-time decision as a result. If he can't play then Joe Colborne will likely take his spot on the top line. Hudler has 14 goals and 39 points in 45 contests in 2014-15.

Martin Brodeur will announced the end of his playing career, but he'll reportedly stick with the Blues as an assistant general manager.

Brodeur will stick with the franchise in a front office capacity. He'll finish with a 2.24 GAA, .912 save percentage, and an NHL-high 691 wins in 1,266 games. He won the Stanley Cup three times and claimed the Vezina Trophy on four occasions. He's as safe a bet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as you get and he'll be routinely brought up during arguments when discussing the greatest goaltenders of all-time. The vast majority of his playing career was with the New Jersey Devils, but after it became apparent that they had moved on to goaltender Cory Schneider, Brodeur attempted to extend his career elsewhere and eventually signed with St. Louis. Although his time playing with the Blues was brief, they have to be happy that they'll get his wealth of experience as an assistant general manager.

Thomas Greiss was the first goaltender to leave the ice for the Penguins Tuesday morning.

That's usually a good way of telling who the starter will be, so it looks like Greiss will get the nod. Marc-Andre Fleury played in the All-Star Game, so the Penguins presumably want to give their top goaltender a breather.

Kris Letang (head) is being regarded as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

The fact that Letang is even being talked about as a possibility to play is an encouraging development. Concussions don't conform to standard timetables, so the fear when Letang was initially hit by Philadelphia's Zac Rinaldo was that he would be on the sidelines for a while. As it is though, Letang has only been absent for one game, albeit partially due to the All-Star break. It Letang plays Tuesday, then Scott Harrington will probably serve as a healthy scratch.

Ray Emery will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Emery has been helping to fill the void left by Steve Mason (knee). However, Mason is healthy enough to backup now, so Emery will probably be warming the bench Thursday.
Jan 27 - 11:26 AM

Erik Johnson will be out of action for three-to-eight weeks with a knee injury.

He had a knee scope performed on Monday. Johnson missed the All-Star Game due to the ailment. He has posted a career high of 12 goals in 47 games this season and he has 23 points.

Darcy Kuemper has been sent to AHL Iowa on a conditioning assignment.

He can be there for up to two weeks. That leaves Devan Dubnyk as Minnesota's likely starter and Niklas Backstrom as the backup. Kuemper made his return to the lineup last Tuesday in a relief appearance against Detroit and he stopped all 14 shots he faced. He missed six games with a lower-body injury before that.
Jan 26 - 4:53 PM

Evgeni Malkin (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He hasn't played since Jan. 20. Malkin wasn't expected to return immediately after the All-Star break. He's tied for third in the league scoring race with 51 points in 45 games this season.
Jan 26 - 4:19 PM

Tyler Johnson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Carolina.

He took part in Monday's practice, but coach Jon Cooper said he's still day-to-day. Johnson wasn't able to play in the All-Star Game because of a lower-body injury, but he's still eligible to play because he participated in All-Star weekend events.
Jan 26 - 3:52 PM

Updating an earlier item, Dion Phanuef is being listed as week-to-week with an upper-body injury.

The Maple Leafs made the announcement via their Twitter account and said that the Toronto captain was injured before the All-Star break.
