The Edmonton Oilers might try to shop their top pick.

Oilers GM Craig MacTavish promised to make bold moves as the Oilers miss the playoffs for the seventh straight season. "If you’re going to be bold, that’s certainly a bold move," TSN's Bob MacKenzie said on the possibility of the Oilers' trading their pick. "What the Edmonton Oilers really don’t need is another 18-year-old blue chipper. They need some help right now and using that first round pick as currency could get them that help right now." It would allow them to address some of their needs and add a veteran presence without trading a member of their existing core. If they do keep the pick, there's a good chance that they'll select a defenseman.

Nino Niederreiter (lower body) will be out until after the All-Star break.

That means that Niederreiter won't be back in the lineup before Jan. 30. Head coach Bruce Boudreau called the situation "a setback". The Wild forward suffered the injury in Monday's practice and he hasn't played since. He has 13 goals and 19 points in 31 games this season.

Malcolm Subban will get the start in Friday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Subban last played on Jan. 5 when he beat the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 5-4. He owns an 11-2-0 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage this season.
Jan 19 - 6:42 PM

Brandon Tanev (lower body) has been taken off the injured reserve list.

Tanev took part in Friday's practice and is expected to make his return on Saturday. Look for him to play on a line with Andrew Copp and Joel Armia.

It looks like Philipp Grubauer will start for the Capitals Friday night.

That makes sense given that this is Washington's second game in as many days, so it's a logical time to rest Braden Holtby. Grubauer's been great lately too, with a 3-0-2 record, 1.04 GAA, and .965 save percentage in his last six games.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is expected to be sidelined for the next five-to-six weeks.

The Oilers have termed Nugent-Hopkins' issue as simply being upper-body, but he's reportedly dealing with a bruised sternum and cracked ribs. This is a particularly unfortunate development given that Nugent-Hopkins had been one of the few positives in Edmonton's season thus far. He has 16 goals and 31 points in 46 contests this season.
Jan 19 - 4:12 PM

Morgan Rielly is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Rielly missed Friday's practice as a result. He's questionable for Saturday's game.
Jan 19 - 4:08 PM

The NHL assessed Evgeni Malkin a $5,000 fine for spearing Dustin Brown.

The incident occurred during Thursday's game. Malkin wasn't punished during the game itself for his actions.
Jan 19 - 4:03 PM

Dustin Brown will not be suspended for boarding Justin Schultz.

Brown did receive a $10,000 fine over the incident though. He's being punished for smashing Schultz into the boards while Schultz was already on his knees. Brown already received a five-minute major and game misconduct due to the incident.
Jan 19 - 4:01 PM

Keith Kinkaid will make his third straight start on Saturday.

Cory Schneider has been under the weather lately and that appears to be why the Devils are leaning on Kinkaid. Kinkaid stopped just 16 of 19 shots on Thursday, but the Devils did earn a 4-3 overtime win against Washington.
Jan 19 - 1:30 PM

Steve Mason is out with a concussion.

Mason has missed the Jets' last two games, but the reason was originally reported to be an illness. Obviously being diagnosed with a concussion is always bad news, but it's particularly troubling in this case because Mason also missed a couple weeks in late November and early December after being concussed. He did have a bit of a concussion history prior to this season as he suffered what was believed to one in 2011 and was concussed in 2014.
Jan 19 - 1:28 PM

Logan Shaw will make his Canadiens' debut on Friday.

Shaw was claimed off waivers from Anaheim on Monday, but he was a healthy scratch on Wednesday. Look for him to play on the fourth line in his Habs debut. He had two goals and eight points in 42 contests with Anaheim this season.
