Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is out indefinitely after suffering a cheek injury.

Quincey was hit by a puck that ramped up Quincey's stick and hit him in the face during the third period of Friday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Oilers at Rexall Place. He was well enough to walk out of the arena, but team doctors wanted him to get an X-Ray - which wasn't available at Rexall - and fear the pressure of flying would be too much for Quincey. He stayed behind in Edmonton with assistant trainer Russ Baumann. "We don't want him to fly in case he's got something broken," general manager Ken Holland said. "We'll find out in the morning." The Wings have Ian White and Kent Huskins available as healthy options to enter the lineup. White has more ability with the puck, and is the likelier replacement especially since the Wings also need someone to fill in for Quincey on the power play. Quincey had a goal and an assist, and was a plus-8 in 26 games. He missed two games with a rolled ankle.

Brandon Sutter's test results came back negative for the mumps.

In light of that Sutter has been cleared to come out of isolation. It's not clear if he'll also be available for Saturday's game, but with all the players the Penguins are missing, they could certainly use the help.

Steve Downie has the mumps.

Downie hasn't played since Dec. 20 and it's not clear how much more time he'll miss due to the disease. For now he'll remain in isolation from the team. In the meantime, the mixture of injuries and sick players in Pittsburgh might lead to Bryan Rust continuing to receive ice time on a line with Sidney Crosby.

Aaron Ekblad has already broken Florida's franchise record for assists by a rookie defenseman.

He has 14 helpers in 32 games, which surpasses Dmitry Kulikov's total of 13 during the 2009-10 campaign. Ed Jovanovski had 21 points as a rookie and Ekblad is close to breaking that record as well. He leads all rookie blueliners in goals (5), assists (14), points (19) and plus-minus (plus-6). He also ranks second among all first-year players with 22:05 of average ice time per game.

Jack Eichel's presence alone makes the United States a contender in the 2015 World Junior Hockey Championship, which kicks off on Boxing Day in Toronto and Montreal.

Eichel is widely considered as the best U.S. prospect since Mike Modano in 1988. He would be a shoe-in for first overall in the 2015 NHL Draft if it weren't for Canadian prodigy Connor McDavid, who seems to have the edge on Eichel for now. Nonetheless, a New Year's Eve showdown between the two marvels might shift the tide if Eichel can outshine McDavid. The Boston University freshman will be one to watch over the tournament, along with 16-year-old Austin Matthews and 18-year-old's Alex Tuch, Sonny Milano and Dylan Larkin.

Curtis Lazar is set to captain Team Canada in the World Junior Hockey Championships, which get rolling on Boxing Day in Toronto and Montreal.

Lazar will lead a deep Canadian squad that includes a strong array of top-end forwards. Eight Canadians were first round NHL draft picks, and of course there is Connor McDavid who will be one of the top two picks in 2015. Team Canada will face immense pressure trying to win their first Juniors tournament since 2009 in front of the home crowd, and will be an exciting team to watch due to their offensive firepower.

Ben Bishop appears as though he'll be back from a lower-body injury on Saturday.

Tampa Bay reassigned Andrei Vasilevskiy, who was up with the team on an emergency basis, to the minors on Wednesday. He played well during Bishop's absence, picking up two wins in three appearances. We'll keep you posted but it looks like fantasy owners will get Bishop back this weekend.

Andrei Vasilevskiy has been returned to AHL Syracuse.

He was up with the Lightning on an emergency recall, but Ben Bishop is poised to return to the lineup on Saturday. Vasilevskiy was impressive in three appearances with Tampa Bay. He posted a 2-1-0 record with a 2.01 goals-against average and .940 save percentage.

John Scott has been suspended for four games for punching an unsuspecting opponent.

The incident occurred on Monday when he hit Anaheim forward Tim Jackman in front of the Ducks goal. Jackman was injured on the play and Scott is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the CBA. He will be eligible to return on Jan. 5 when the Sharks begin a three-game road trip in Winnipeg.

Stephen Weiss logged just 8:55 of ice time in his return to the lineup from a shoulder injury on Tuesday night.

He appeared to receive an elbow to the head from Sabres defenseman Nikita Zadorov, which removed him from the game. However, Weiss insists that he's fine. "I didn't see him," he said. "I couldn't tell you what happened. I was a little woozy there but I feel fine. I had my bell rung a little bit but I went through the protocol." We'll keep him as active for now. The Wings play Saturday against Ottawa in their first game back from the Christmas break.

Niklas Kronwall exited Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury.

He was sandwiched by two members of the Buffalo Sabres in the second period and stayed on the bench for a few shifts before heading to the locker room for the rest of the game. Kronwall is listed as day-to-day for now and he'll try to recover during the Christmas break.
