Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will see Dr. Tony Miniaci Monday and could have shoulder surgery as early as Tuesday.

Nugent-Hopkins said that the injury originally happened in his second year in junior hockey with Red Deer of the WHL and is not related to the shoulder injury suffered last season. "It has gotten a little worse, so it had to be taken care of eventually. It's time," Nugent-Hopkins said. "I don't want to have to deal with the discomfort and pain every year." Look for a season in 2013-14 like his rookie one in which he had 52 points in 62 games and not a bad one like this season where he had only four goals and 24 points in 40 games. It may take six months for Nugent-Hopkins to heal so he may start next season on the injured reserve list.

Andre Burakovsky has been reassigned to the minors.

He is the odd-man out after the Capitals acquired Curtis Glencross from Calgary. Burakovsky, who has nine goals and 21 points in 48 games this season, will get plenty of playing time with Hershey. It's unclear how long he'll be down in the AHL.

James Wisniewski has been dealt to the Anaheim Ducks.

Cam Atkinson has agreed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract extension.

Atkinson has 13 goals and 25 points in 58 games in 2014-15. That's a substantial jump from his previous average annual salary of $1.15 million, but that's not surprising given that the 25-year-old has established himself as an important part of the Blue Jackets. He would have been eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Alex Stalock will start for San Jose on Monday night against Montreal.

Detroit was after a right-handed defenseman and they found one in Zidlicky, who brings some depth to the back end of the Wings. He has 23 points in 63 matches this season.
