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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Kevin Bieksa will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks after he underwent hand surgery.

He sustained a broken hand just before the All-Star break. Bieksa has nine points, 74 hits, 75 blocks and 63 penalty minutes in 45 games this campaign.
Jan 26 - 3:15 PM

Updating an earlier item, Kyle Okposo is projected to miss six-to-eight weeks with an upper-body injury.

That's a tough blow for the Islanders, as Okposo is the second on the team with 44 points in 46 games. He's formed an excellent tandem with John Tavares this season. Ryan Strome could be a candidate to replace Okposo on the top line.
Jan 26 - 3:09 PM

Los Angeles has placed Mike Richards on waivers.

According to reports, the Kings had been trying to move Richards, but they were unsuccessful in their attempts. He has $5.75 million cap hit until 2019-2020 season and he's earning $7 million this year.

Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to be out of action for four-to-six weeks with a groin injury.

The Blue Jackets placed him on injured reserve retroactive to January 21. Anton Forsberg has been recalled from the minors to take his spot on the roster.
Jan 26 - 12:25 PM

John Tavares scored four goals in Team Toews' 17-12 win over Team Foligno in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

The four goals tie an NHL All-Star game record which he now shares with five others. The 17 goals scored by Team Toews and the 29 goals combined are both All-Star game records. Flyers' forward Jakub Voracek led all skaters with six points, while Jonathan Toews (Blackhawks) and Patrice Bergeron (Bruins) had five points each.
Jan 25 - 8:24 PM

Ryan Johansen was named the MVP in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

Johansen and Team Foligno lost, 17-12. The Blue Jackets' forward had two goals and one assist in the game. Islanders' forward John Tavares (four goals) probably deserved the MVP award, but the event was in Columbus, and the fans on Twitter had the final say. Only Anze Kopitar (Kings) and Zemgus Girgensons (Sabres) were held pointless in the game. Steven Stamkos (Lightning), Patrick Kane (Blackhawks), Claude Giroux (Flyers) and Alex Ovechkin (Capitals) also had three points each for Team Foligno.
Jan 25 - 8:12 PM

Carey Price will get the start for Team Foligno in Sunday's All-Star game.

Price will go head-to-head with Roberto Luongo in the first period. After Price, Penguins' goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury will play for Team Toews' in the second period, and Brian Elliot will be between the pipes in the third.
