It appears as though Ryan Kesler will make his return to Vancouver's lineup Friday night against Dallas.

"He's been medically cleared to play, all indications are he's ready to go," said coach Alain Vigneault. The Vancouver bench boss spoke like Kesler would play and he would join a line with Chris Higgins and Zack Kassian.

The New York Islanders and Josh Bailey are reportedly close to a multi-year agreement.

The final terms will reportedly be in the ballpark of five or six years with an annual cap hit of about $5 million. If that ends up being what happens, it seems pretty reasonable. Bailey is enjoying a huge season with 15 goals and 62 points in 57 contests, so if he manages to stay at that level then the Islanders will be getting a big bargain. Of course, they're also assuming a risk given that for most of his career, Bailey has been a 30-40ish point player. That being said, he did have 13 goals and 56 points in 2016-17, so while he's reaching new heights this season, it didn't come completely out of nowhere. Plus, if re-signing him helps convince his frequent linemate John Tavares to stay with the Islanders, then this will be money well spent.

Bobby Ryan (finger) is good to return on Thursday.

It will be Ryan's first game since Feb. 1. He has seven goals and 20 points in 39 contests this season. Get him back in your lineup if you have him.

Rick Nash and Michael Grabner will both be healthy scratches on Thursday.

The Rangers are attempting to trade Nash and Grabner before the deadline and something might be imminent. Either way, this is a precautionary measure to keep them healthy.

Carey Price is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Price took a shot off his mask on Tuesday and while he stayed in that game, it seems the incident had a lasting effect. As with all concussions, it's not clear how long he'll be sidelined for. It might be that he'll be back soon or this could mark the end of what has been a difficult season for him.

Jon Gillies will get his first start of the 2017-18 campaign on Thursday.

Gillies had made two appearances for the Flames before that and posted a 4.35 GAA and .815 save percentage over 69 minutes of ice time. At the AHL level, he has a 2.61 GAA and .915 save percentage in 31 contests this season.

The Florida Panthers have acquired Frank Vatrano from the Boston Bruins in exchange for a third round pick.

Vatrano hasn't been able to play since Feb. 2 due to a lower-body injury and it's not clear when he'll return. Before the injury, his role with Boston was minimal this season as he averaged 9:28 minutes per game and had two goals in 25 contests. The 23-year-old was strong with UMass-Amherst before turning pro in 2015 and he has excelled at the AHL level. A fresh start might be what he needs to move past his more recent struggles and injury misfortune.

Aaron Dell is expected to start Thursday night.

Dell will be looking for his third straight win. He has a 2.51 GAA and .917 save percentage in 24 games this season.
Feb 22 - 2:03 PM

Tomas Hertl (upper body) is good to return on Thursday.

Hertl was sidelined for three consecutive games. He has 15 goals and 33 points in 57 games this season.

Shea Weber will undergo foot surgery to repair a torn tendon.

Weber has been ruled out for the rest of the season as a result. The original hope was that Weber would be able to recover through rehab alone, which would have enabled him to play again in 2017-18. However, progress wasn't being made and it was determined after further examination that surgery was the way to go. Weber was limited to 26 games this season.
Feb 22 - 1:04 PM

Mike Green (upper body) will miss Thursday's game.

It will be Green's fourth straight contest on the sideline. The hope is that he'll be able to return on Saturday or Sunday though. There's a good chance that the Red Wings will attempt to trade him before the Monday deadline, so Green returning this weekend would help alleviate a potential complication in that.
Feb 22 - 12:23 PM

Eddie Lack will be the Devils' starter on Thursday.

Lack is with the Devils because Cory Schneider is sidelined. Once Schneider returns, which could be in the near future, Lack will likely be returned to the AHL. Lack has a 2-3-0 record, 4.22 GAA, and .869 save percentage in seven games this season.
