Ilya Kovalchuk (shoulder) skated again Wednesday during New Jersey's optional practice.

He is getting close to making his return from a shoulder injury, but isn't sure if he'll be ready to play in Friday's game against Ottawa. "We did definitely more shots and a little battle there at the end, so it's good," Kovalchuk said regarding his progress. "It feels good, so it's definitely a step in the right direction." If he doesn't come back Friday then a return Monday night in Toronto could be possible.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will be back in the lineup Monday night in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against his former Nashville teammates.

His return will make Carl Hagelin and Jake Guentzel game-time decisions. Hornqvist has missed the last six games with an upper-body injury. He has four goals and seven points in 13 matches during the 2017 playoffs.

Mike Fisher (undisclosed) is expected to be available for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, per Predators coach Peter Laviolette.

Fisher returned to practice on Thursday and said that he felt pretty good, so it's not surprising to see him projected to return. It's also a big boost for the Predators to get a center back given that Ryan Johansen won't be available for the Stanley Cup Final.

Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will be a game-time decision for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan was "definitely encouraged" by the way Hornqvist played during Sunday's practice. As previously noted, Hornqvist skated on the first power-play unit during the practice, which is might suggest that they're working under the belief that he'll be available.

John Shannon of Sportsnet.ca says that the Washington Capitals and T.J. Oshie have just about completed a new contract.

Oshie was slated to be a UFA on July 1 but this will take him off the market. There are no terms at this time but that should come shortly as Oshie would have been a highly sought-after free agent had he hit the market. Oshie had 33 goals this season, his best in his NHL career. Look for 30-plus goals and 55-60 points from Oshie this season and draft him accordingly.

Multiple sources have reported that the Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals will play an outdoor game at the Naval Academy on March 3, 2018.

The announcement will be made on Monday. The stadium holds 34,000 people and will be a rematch of the first round of the playoffs in which the Capitals won in six tough games, five of which went into overtime.

Erik Karlsson revealed he will deal with his injured foot next week and expects to make a full recovery.

Karlsson will have an MRI and X-rays done. You wouldn't know with the way he was playing, but Karlsson revealed earlier in the postseason that he was playing with two hairline fractures in his left heel. Hard to believe that a two-time Norris trophy winner needed a coming out party, but this past playoff run really cemented his status as the best defensemen in the NHL.

Tobias Rieder underwent successful ankle surgery and his recovery period is expected to be 8-12 weeks.

Rieder sustained his injury during the World Hockey Championship where he had one goal in three games for Germany. He finished the NHL regular season with 16 goals and 34 points in 80 games. He has the potential to put up a few more points if he is fully recovered from his ankle ailment.

Speaking to the media, Craig Anderson said he is feeling encouraged that scans from his wife came back clean of her cancer.

It has been a roller coaster ride of a season for Anderson, but it's nice to see that it's ending on a good note despite losing Game 7 in double OT to the Penguins. We wish nothing but the best to the Anderson family moving forward.

Had Peter Laviolette been out of a job one month later, he would have likely been named head coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins according to GM Jim Rutherford.

Of course, Laviolette and Rutherford worked together in Carolina when they both guided the Hurricanes to the Stanley Cup 11 years ago. "Interesting how things could have worked out differently, isn't it?" Rutherford said Friday. "I really have a special admiration for what he did when we worked together. ... We would have reunited. But the timing didn't work out. I think that's about as clear as I can say about what I thought about Peter Laviolette - the fact that if he was available, I would have hired him here when I first got here." Of course, the job eventually went to Mike Johnston who was eventually replaced by Mike Sullivan. It worked out for both parties involved as Laviolette has guided the Predators to the Stanley Cup Final and the Penguins will look to win back-to-back Stanley Cups.

Vancouver GM Jim Benning wants to bring back pending unrestricted free agent Ryan Miller.

If that happens then Miller and Jacob Markstrom would probably share action in the crease, while Thatcher Demko gets more time to develop in the minors. "As we're transitioning these young players into our lineup, I feel that if we have solid goaltending on a night-to-night basis, we can be competitive," Benning said. "There's no worse feeling than trying to develop young players and get them up and going when you know you don't have a chance to win. Ryan and Jacob have a healthy relationship because they're competitive and respect each other. We have something to offer Ryan that he already knows. We've got some positives for him and if that’s the route we go, that's why we're doing it." Miller just completed a three-year, $18 million contract.

With the Ottawa Senators season officially coming to an end on Thursday, it is time for the Senators organization to shift their focus to the upcoming expansion draft.

The biggest conundrum facing the Senators is whether or not to protect Bobby Ryan for the Vegas expansion draft taking place on June 21st. Despite a strong playoff run, Ryan picked up only 25 points during the regular season and his $7.25 cap hit for the next five-years is the highest on the team. If the Senators were to lose him to Vegas, they'd free up some money but they'd find it extremely difficult to replace Ryan's production during the past few weeks. One thing is certain, the talented forward definitely wants to stay. "Ten years for me, I’ve never been part of anything like it," Ryan said of the "incredible run by an incredible group of guys". Despite his contract, he appears to be highly motivated to build on his playoff success and bounce back during the upcoming campaign.
