The Carolina Hurricanes have called up Jeremy Welsh.

The move might be in response to Tim Brent suffering a lower body injury during Monday's practice. Welsh has 10 goals and 18 points in 47 AHL games this season.

Patrice Bergeron (undisclosed) is being listed as day-to-day.

He didn't practice on Sunday and it's unclear if he'll play in Monday's match against Detroit. Bergeron will be re-evaluated on Monday to determine his status. He saw three shifts in the third period of Saturday's game against Columbus before he was pulled for precautionary reasons.

Evander Kane is slated to be re-evaluated to see if he'll play in Monday's game against Minnesota.

He blocked a shot late in Saturday's game versus the Wild and he missed Sunday's practice as a result. Patrice Cormier was called up from the minors, which means you should consider Kane day-to-day until the Jets update his status.

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced that Jonathan Bernier will miss Sunday's game against the Florida Panthers because of "flu-like symptoms."

The Maple Leafs say that it isn't the mumps, or at least hasn't been confirmed yet. There's no word regarding whether he's expected to miss an extended amount of time, but make adjustments for today.

With Calvin Pickard demoted and Reto Berra not impressing, the Colorado Avalanche expect to lean on Semyon Varlamov very heavily.

Colorado made a big investment in Berra via a trade, but apparently he's already lost favor. Varlamov, 26, is 5-6-5 with a .913 save percentage so far this season. The Russian netminder made all 26 stops in his return to action against the St. Louis Blues on Dec. 23.

It seems like Carolina Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal is just about certain to make his 2014-15 season debut on Monday, something he admitted to being "anxious" about.

This situation could be fluid, but for now, it looks like he's centering a line with his brother Eric Staal and Nathan Gerbe. That could be a line to watch if it has any staying power.

Brian Elliott is in fact on the ice and taking part in the Blues' full practice Sunday.

Blues' coach Ken Hitchcock told reporters this would be the case and it has come to pass. Elliott who has been out of action for the last month with a knee injury is moving closer to a return. When he is healthy enough to play it will be interesting to see what the Blues do with Martin Brodeur.

More bad health-related news for the battered Pittsburgh Penguins: Patric Hornqvist is expected to miss a "few weeks" with a lower-body injury.

The 27-year-old has already dealt with a concussion in 2014-15, his first season with the Penguins. When healthy, Hornqvist has been a revelation, generating 13 goals and 29 points in 33 games. Here's hoping he can enjoy better health once 2015 rolls around.

Despite some fantastic work while Semyon Varlamov was out with an injury, the Colorado Avalanche assigned Calvin Pickard to the AHL.

Pickard's record might not have been impressive (6-6-2), yet his fantastic work kept Colorado in games. He had a fantastic .934 save percentage. It looks like Reto Berra will back up Varlamov while Pickard tries to stay sharp in the AHL.

Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien noted that both Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron are day-to-day, but didn't disclose their injuries.

Lucic fought Dalton Prout in a spirited bout on Saturday, so perhaps that might have something to do with it.

One day after placing Jaroslav Halak on IR, the New York Islanders removed that designation on Sunday.

Halak has been masterful for the Islanders, going 18-6-0 with a .919 save percentage in 24 games played. It wouldn't be surprising if he returns to action on Monday.

Derek Dorsett will see second line duty on Sunday.

Dorsett has played most of the season on the fourth line but coach Willie Desjardins had him on the second unit in practice on Saturday alongside Nick Bonino and Chris Higgins. Dorsett has also started playing on the first power play and is looking more and more like a good fantasy asset as he is third in the NHL in penalty minutes with 77. "We need net presence and we need puck recovery, and I think he’s pretty good at both of those," Desjardins stated. "It’s a tough job standing in front of the net. A lot of guys may say they want it, but when the puck’s coming in, they don’t want it. It is a tough role and only a few guys will do that." Dorsett has four goals and 11 points in 31 games. Pick him up.
