Nick Foligno (upper body) should practice Wednesday and could return to the lineup the next night against Nashville.

Foligno was hurt a week ago on a hit from Vancouver's Alexander Edler. The Jackets retroactively placed him on injured reserve Monday, meaning Thursday is the first time he's eligible to be activated. Check back after tomorrow's practice session for an update.

Martin Brodeur will get the nod on Friday.

This could be Brodeur's last start as a member of the New Jersey Devils. He's previously stated that he would like to play in another campaign though, even if it isn't with New Jersey, so this might not be his final game overall.

Alex Stalock will start for the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

It's an opportunity for Antti Niemi to rest ahead of the playoffs and after a couple rough starts. Stalock has a 1.91 GAA and .929 save percentage in 23 games in 2013-14.

Tomas Hertl (knee) will return to the San Jose Sharks' lineup on Friday.

Hertl emerged as one of the most exciting rookies in the league with his four-goal game on Oct. 8. He had 15 goals and 25 points in 35 games before he suffered a knee injury and needed surgery to repair his PCL and MCL. This will be his first game since Dec. 19. It will be interesting to see if the Sharks reunite their former top line of Hertl, Joe Thornton, and Brent Burns.

Curtis McElhinney will play between the pipes against Tampa Bay.

The Blue Jackets have secured their playoff spot, so Sergei Bobrovsky will get a game off to rest for the playoffs. McElhinney has a 2.68 GAA and .910 save percentage in 27 games in 2013-14.

Nathan Horton has undergone abdominal surgery.

Horton will miss the next six weeks as a result, which kills his chances of helping the Blue Jackets in their playoff run unless they go deep. He has four goals and 14 assists in 35 games this season. Injuries have been a problem all season for Horton, which is part of the reason why his 2013-14 numbers are underwhelming. However, he had success in the playoffs during his days with Boston and Columbus could have certainly used his services.

Coach Ken Hitchcock labeled T.J. Oshie as day-to-day after he absorbed a high hit from Minnesota's Michael Rupp on Thursday night.

Rupp received a match penalty on the play and he'll probably face supplemental discipline from the league. Oshie had difficulty getting up after the hit and his night ended after playing 11:06 of ice time.

Brendan Shanahan has joined the Toronto Maple Leafs as the team's president.

Shanahan will leave his post as the NHL's top disciplinarian and bring the experience that he gathered from his Hall of Fame career to the table. He won an Olympic gold medal and three Stanley Cup championships. Naming him as the president means that Dave Nonis will keep his job as the general manager. That being said, Nonis will now be working under Shanahan and might see his influence diminished as a result.

Henrik Zetterberg (back) resumed skating on his own this week.

It's still hard to say when he'll available to play again, though. "Until he is practicing with the Red Wings, we really don't know," GM Ken Holland said. His initial timetable was set at eight weeks and that is still two weeks away from happening. Zetterberg could return late in the first round of the playoffs or in the second round depending on how deep the Red Wings make it. He hasn't played for Detroit since Feb. 8 after he got hurt in the Olympics while suiting up for Sweden.
