The Maple Leafs selected Frederik Gauthier with the 21st overall pick of the 2013 amateur entry draft.

Gauthier is a very solid two-way player, who uses his well-developed hockey sense to make plays at both ends of the ice. His mature game will translate well in the NHL, though he isn’t viewed as a game-changing prospect. Gauthier showed some offensive ability this year, scoring 22 goals and registering 60 points in 62 games in his first season with Rimouski. However, it is his defensive play that is his ticket to the NHL. He’s strong in the faceoff circle and is very effective on the penalty kill. Though he doesn’t use his 6’3" frame to physically intimidate his opponents, he understands how to use his body in the cycle game and in shielding defenders from the puck. With some more development, he projects as a prototypical second or third-line player who could be used against an opposing team’s top line. The Maple Leafs sure could use this type of player but will likely have to wait a year or two before he can contribute.

Matt Duchene will miss Monday's game against San Jose because of an illness.

This definitely isn't good news for the Avs, who are already struggling to find the back of the net. Duchene is considered day-to-day at this point. He leads the team with 15 goals this season. Rene Bourque, Tyson Barrie and Semyon Varlamov are also out with injuries. Colorado will be forced to dress 19 players instead of 20.

Sami Vatanen will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Vatanen averages over 22 minutes of ice time per game this season, but the Ducks are clearly trying to send him a message after his brutal performance against the Wild. He finished with a minus-4 rating that game.

Jonathan Bernier will get the nod in Monday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Bernier will make his second straight start because John Gibson was dealing with a minor injury, but Gibson is healthy enough to serve as the backup tonight. Bernier has a 7-4-1 record with a 2.95 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage.
Jan 23 - 7:46 PM

Jeff Zatkoff will get the start in Monday's game against the New York Rangers.

Zatkoff hasn't won since Dec. 15 (three appearances). He has 2-6-1 record with a 2.93 goals-against-average and a .886 save percentage in 2016-17.

Conor Sheary has been chosen as the first star of the week.

He racked up six goals and nine points in four games during the period ending Jan. 22 to receive the honor. Sheary registered two-goal outings on three occasions and he posted a pair of three-point efforts during a four-game point streak. He has 17 markers and 17 assists in 39 games this year.

Zack Smith has inked a four-year extension with the Ottawa Senators.

The contract has an annual average value of $3.25 million, which he will earn each year starting in 2017-18. Smith would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency at the end of the season.

Johnny Gaudreau will be reunited with Sean Monahan on Monday night against Toronto.

The duo will be joined by Alex Chiasson. Gaudreau hasn't scored a goal for nine games and he has three assists during that time. Perhaps skating alongside Monahan, who has been red hot lately, can get Gaudreau back on track.

Thomas Vanek (lower body) will not play on Tuesday night.

He is listed as day-to-day and hasn't been ruled out for Wednesday's game versus Toronto. Vanek was hit in the groin area by a puck on Sunday.
Jan 23 - 5:06 PM

Patrik Laine (concussion) could be back as soon as Tuesday night.

Coach Paul Maurice called him an "option" to play against San Jose. "He feels really good," Maurice said. "So he's been banging on the door a little bit here. He's feeling strong, feeling ready. We needed to push him as hard as we did (Sunday) just to clear up any concerns that we would have. He's very, very close." Laine did some extra skating after Monday's optional session as he prepares to return from a concussion.
