Zach Boychuk has been claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Penguins from Carolina.

The 23-year-old forward opened the season for the Hurricanes on their top line, but sat as a healthy scratch for the next four games. Boychuk was placed on waivers to give him a chance to play regularly in the minors, but the move proved to be costly for Carolina as the Penguins swooped in to nab the former first-round pick off the waiver wire. He has recorded just seven goals and 18 points in 73 career NHL contests, but look for Pittsburgh to use him alongside Evgeni Malkin and James Neal at some point.

Jaroslav Halak was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Thursday.

The Islanders' original starter this season has been sensational for the SoundTigers, going 17-7-1 with a .925 save percentage and a 2.15 GAA. With three sets of back-to-backs to finish the season, including Friday and Saturday of this week, it would appear the Isles are using every tool in their arsenal to secure a playoff slot. Prior to his demotion, Halak was 6-8-5 with a .906 SV% and a 3.23 GAA with New York.

Ryan Strome has been lost to the Islanders with a broken wrist suffered in Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

Anders Lee scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the New York Rangers.

Lee's goal at the 3:40 mark of the second period tied the game at one and he registered the primary assist on Andrew Ladd's game-winning goal in the third frame. The Islanders forward has three points in his last three games, and he's up to 27 goals and 44 points in 71 games. He's on pace to hit the 50-point mark for the first time in his NHL career. The Isles now trail the Bruins by two points in the chase for the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

William Nylander picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Nylander's point streak has now hit an incredible nine games. He picked up the primary assist on Auston Matthews' first-period goal before scoring the game-winning goal at the 12:23 mark of the second frame. The Leafs forward now has 20 goals and 34 assists in 71 games. Leo Komarov, Nazem Kadri and Nikita Zaitsev also found the back of the net for the Leafs. Nylander will be a must-own in all fantasy formats next season.

Rasmus Ristolainen will face a hearing Thursday afternoon for his interference hit on Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel.

He was ejected from Tuesday night's game as a result of the incident. Guentzel suffered a concussion on the play and it was a hit on a player who didn't have the puck, which are both factors that will probably work against Ristolainen.

Coach Claude Julien said that Carey Price isn't feeling 100 percent.

The Canadiens bench boss said the issue was "very minor," but he won't confirm if Price is playing on Thursday night yet. The good news is that Price managed to practice on Wednesday.
