Mikael Backlund signed a two-year contract worth $3 million with the Flames.

The 24-year-old netted eight goals and chipped in with eight more assists this past season. "Mikael really stepped-up last season and took advantage of the change in direction under a new coaching staff," said Flames general manager Jay Feaster. "He came into camp in very good shape and also had regained his confidence. He parlayed that into a strong season, and if it wasn’t for his injury we believe he would have progressed even further in his development. We need Mikael to be one of our go-to players this year, and we are excited about watching him continue to evolve and take that step to the next level as a player."

Marian Hossa has played with five teams in his illustrious career, and now has made his indelible mark on two team's record books.

Hossa spent the first seven years of his career in Ottawa, scoring 188 goals and 390 points. Now into his eighth campaign with Chicago, Hossa has matched that point total after his 173rd and 174th goals of his time with the Blackhawks during Tuesday's 4-0 win over Arizona. He only needed 21 extra games to reach the mark, too. It won't be long now until Hossa reaches 400 points with a single team now, which deserves its own celebration. Lastly, he has 14 goals and 20 points in 27 games this season.

Scott Darling was the apple of all of Chicago's eyes during his 4-0 win over the Coyotes.

He only had to make 22 stops but with Corey Crawford expected to miss most if not all of December, this is certainly a delight. It was Darling's first shutout of the year, and the third of his career. His record now stands in at 5-2-1 with a 2.39 GAA and a .919 save percentage.

Jaroslav Halak guided the Islanders past the Rangers 4-2 on Tuesday.

Halak turned away 36 of 38 shots, including all 13 on the penalty kill. In fact, he made 16 stops in the first with 10 on the kill. The latter coming on a single double-minor. Wow. That's a winning effort if there ever was one. Halak's record rises to 5-6-5 with a .912 save percentage and a 2.88 GAA.

Steve Mason came to work during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Panthers.

He stopped 42 of 44 shots, including all three asked of him while on the penalty kill. The Flyers have won six straight now, with Mason taking five. This is the second time in the streak he's made as many stops as well. Mason is now 10-8-3 with a .908 save percentage and 2.71 GAA.

Rasmus Ristolainen had a monster of a game during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Oilers.

In fact, he scored his first goal of the season and it was the overtime winner just 57 seconds into the frame. He also picked up a pair of helpers to give him 16 points in 26 games. Despite the otherwise lack of scoring, it would seem he's well on his way to break his career best of 41 points set last year.

Rick Nash left Tuesday's game against the New York Islanders.

It's unclear when he was injured, but the team has already announced that he won't be back in tonight's game. We'll provide an update on his status as soon as one is made available.

Mark Scheifele (lower body) will sit out Tuesday's game versus Detroit.

However, he did make some progress and skated in the morning. This will be the third straight game he has missed with a lower-body injury.
Dec 6 - 4:49 PM

Logan Couture is questionable for Wednesday's game after he had a screw removed from his ankle over the weekend.

He wasn't on the ice Tuesday because his ankle was too irritated to put on his skate, but he was walking around fine. Couture still has five screws in place after he had surgery on his ankle last season. He believes that he will be available to play against Ottawa. A decision will likely come after the morning skate.
