The Los Angeles Kings have commenced contract extension discussions with captain Dustin Brown.

Brown has one year left on his contract. His deal is one of the league's best bargains with just a $3.175 million cap hit, which was signed way back in 2008-09. He's in line for a substantial raise. Kings GM Dean Lombardi has a knack for signing guys to bargain deals before breakthroughs, particularly with guys like Brown and Jonathan Quick.

Jack Eichel has confirmed that he is good to go for Tuesday's match against Edmonton.

He tweaked his ankle during Monday's overtime loss to Washington, but stayed in the game. Eichel's status was a bit of a concern afterward, but the Sabres insisted that he would be fine and that has turned out to be the case. Keep him active.

Corey Crawford (appendectomy) has been moved to injured reserve.

He is retroactive to Dec. 3 after he had an emergency appendectomy over the weekend. Crawford is expected to miss two-to-three weeks, so this was just a procedural transaction for the Blackhawks.

Craig Anderson has returned home to be his wife again.

He will not accompany the Senators on their trip to California and it's unclear when he will return to the lineup. Anderson has left the team a few times this season, as his wife undergoes treatment for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Sam Gagner led the Blue Jackets to a 4-1 victory on Monday with two goals and two assists.

Gagner was limited to just eight goals and 16 points in 51 games with Philadelphia last season, but he seems to have turned his career around in Columbus. After Monday's showing he now has 10 goals and 17 points in 23 games this season. Nick Foligno and Zach Werenski each found the back of the net for the Blue Jackets. Cam Atkinson assisted on two of Columbus' four goals.

Marcus Johansson scored two goals, including the overtime marker, in Washington's 3-2 win over Buffalo Monday night.

Those were Johansson's 10th and 11th goals in 24 games this season. To give that some context, he has never scored more than 20 markers in a single campaign, so he's currently on pace to shatter his personal best. He also remarkably already has five game winners. Jay Beagle scored Washington's other goal. Evgeny Kuznetsov, Justin Williams, Daniel Winnik, John Carlson, Dmitry Orlov, and Brooks Orpik each registered an assist.

Bryan Rust had a hat trick and registered an assist to lead the Penguins in an 8-5 victory over Ottawa Monday night.

Rust's hat trick was an unusual one. He got his first goal just 1:45 minutes into the game, but then didn't find the back of the net again until the third frame. His second marker was scored on a penalty shot and then he completed the hat trick with an empty netter at 17:32 of the third period. On a team with quite a bit of offensive talent - as tonight's game displayed - Rust is not known for his goal scoring touch. In fact he had just eight goals in 77 career NHL games prior to Monday's efforts.
Dec 5 - 10:24 PM

Matt Beleskey will miss six weeks because of a knee injury.

Beleskey was injured in Saturday's game against the Sabres and he didn't play in tonight's game against Florida. Expect him to return in mid-January. The Bruins forward has two goals and three assists in 24 games this season.
Dec 5 - 9:57 PM

Zdeno Chara will return to the lineup on Monday.

He ended up missing six games in all. Chara is currently skating on Boston's first pairing with Brandon Carlo. He has one goal and six assists in 19 games. The Bruins captain averages 22:41 of ice time per game.
Dec 5 - 6:49 PM

The Montreal Canadiens are terming Alex Galchenyuk (leg) as "out indefinitely."

Galchenyuk sustained the injury during the third period of Sunday's contest. The fact that Montreal is labeling him as out indefinitely is obviously very discouraging as while that timetable is vague, it tends to be used in relation to long-term injuries. That being said, Montreal plans to have an update on Galchenyuk later this week after he undergoes further testing.

Anthony Duclair will be a healthy scratch on Monday.

Duclair had a strong rookie showing with 20 goals and 44 points in 81 games last season, but his sophomore campaign has been a huge step down thus far. Through 23 contests, he has just one goal and four points. Coyotes coach Dave Tippett sees this as an opportunity for Duclair to "reset." He'll be back in the lineup on Tuesday.
Dec 5 - 2:49 PM

Taylor Fedun's previously undisclosed injury is a shoulder issue.

Fedun is listed as day-to-day, but isn't expected to play on Monday. The Sabres' blueline has been decimated recently by injuries, so the fact that this might be short-term has to come as a relief to Sabres fans. In the meantime, Erik Burgdoerfer will draw into Buffalo's lineup on Monday.
