The Dallas Stars have sent goaltender Richard Bachman to the Texas Stars of the AHL.

Bachman certainly didn't set the world on fire in the NHL as he was 2-3-0 this season with a 4.27 GAA and a .838 save percentage. He will get some starts in the American Hockey League and hopefully can turn his game around.

Eric Staal hopes to be with the Hurricanes "long-term," according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.

Friedman spoke with Staal, who is dealing with an upper-body injury, Friday. Staal has two years, including this one, remaining on his deal and there has been speculation that the Hurricanes would consider moving him as part a rebuild. Staal says that any talk of his future has been "extremely premature" and that the only thing that could change his mind is if a new owner comes in and wants to change the direction of the team.

While the San Jose Sharks' effort was uneven on Saturday, Michal Neuvirth deserves a lot of credit for the Buffalo Sabres' shocking 2-1 win.

Neuvirth stopped 29 out of 30 shots, including 14 out of 15 in the third period. The 26-year-old has faced 107 shots in three games so far, acquitting himself pretty well. This is his first win for Buffalo in 2014-15, and if he keeps this up, he might take quite a few starts from Jhonas Enroth.

The Blues have shuffled their forward lines for Saturday night's grudge match against the Blackhawks.

Jaden Schwartz will start on a line with David Backes and T.J. Oshie, while Alexander Steen will skate alongside Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko. Essentially, Schwartz and Steen will be flip flopped. The Blues other two lines will be as follows: Dmitrij Jaskin-Patrik Berglund-Joakim Lindstrom and Steve Ott-Maxim Lapierre-Ryan Reaves. Schwartz is St.Louis' leading scorer with four goals and should continue to thrive in a top-six position all season long. The loser in this alignment, however, is Steve Ott, who got a chance to play in the top six earlier this week.

Jason Spezza will once again center Dallas' top line alongside Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, who has shifted to right wing.

This has the makings of one of the NHL's best lines. Benn has scored in five straight games and Spezza has points in four consecutive contests. The balance of the Stars' lines will look like this against the Islanders Saturday: Antoine Roussel-Cody Eakin-Ryan Garbutt; Patrick Eaves-Vernon Fiddler-Ales Hemsky and Erik Cole-Shawn Horcoff-Colton Sceviour. Hemsky is the big loser out of this alignment, although he did look great taking a game-high eight shots Friday night against New Jersey.

Jarome Iginla scored his 561st and 562nd goals of his NHL career Friday night against Vancouver.

He broke a tie he had been in with Guy Lafleur and passed Mike Modano for 23rd on the alltime list. Next up are Joe Nieuwendyk and Mats Sundin at 564. Those are some pretty impressive names Iginla is passing. No doubt Iggy will be in the Hall of Fame one day.

The New York Islanders took Mikhail Grabovski off injured reserve on Saturday. He's expected to play against the Dallas Stars in tonight's game.

In four games, Grabovski - listed at all three forward positions in Yahoo - has two goals, one assist, a +3 rating, four blocked shots and seven SOG. With Josh Bailey injured, this is a welcome return for the Islanders.

Nashville Predators forward James Neal and Pittsburgh Penguins winger Patric Hornqvist both have added motivation for Saturday night as they face their respective former teams in the first head-to-head match since the big trade.

Though not a guarantee, that motivation can often mean fantasy hockey dividends, whether it comes down to extra points or PIM. Neal is on a hot streak (all five goals in his last four games including Thursday's hat trick), while Hornqvist has been held off the board in his last two games. Both aren't shy about shooting, either.

Look for Phil Kessel to have a big night against the Bruins Saturday.

As the Buds' number one offensive threat Kessel is always on the ice opposite the Bruins' top defender Zdeno Chara. With Chara injured, look for Kessel to have a lot more room to dart around and create offensive chances. If you have Kessel on your fantasy team, make sure he is active as he loves to play against his former club generally, and without Chara in the Boston lineup he might actually have some fun.

Patric Hornqvist will face his former teammates from Nashville for the first time on Saturday.

The Predators will host the Penguins as Hornqvist and Nick Spaling will make their first appearance back in Nashville since the off-season deal. The deal has worked out for both sides thus far with Hornqvist compiling four goals and eight points in six games while James Neal, who went to the Predators has five goals for Nashville in the early going.

The Philadelphia Flyers, in dire need of help on the blueline, could be interested in the services of Ryan Whitney.

After Whitney was released from his professional tryout with the St. Louis Blues after training camp, Whitney was not on anyone's radar so he signed a deal with HC Sochi of the KHL. The fortunate part is that Whitney has an out clause with Sochi and he has yet to play a game with the club. If he does play at least one game, he will have to go through waivers if he re-signs with an NHL squad this season, so the time frame to sign him is narrowing quickly. The Flyers lost two defensemen this week as Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald are both expected to miss four weeks with injuries.
Oct 25 - 9:02 AM

Rookie Johnny Gaudreau is a plus-four in eight games thus far this season.

The speedy rookie has a goal and two assists as well. Gaudreau spent a game in the press box a week ago and has been on fire ever since, giving the Flames no reason to have him just watch games. He is worth having on your fantasy roster in all but the shallowest of leagues.
