Roberto Luongo's former agent, Gilles Lupien, says the Vancouver Canucks treated his client like "like a piece of paper, a fourth-line player."

Luongo's relationship has taken a strange turn over the past year, culminating in the team's decision to trade the younger, more affordable Cory Schneider instead of dealing Luongo at June's draft. Luongo, who had all but announced his departure from Vancouver, was reportedly stunned by the decision. GM Mike Gillis recently said he believes the two sides are on good terms, but Luongo's decision to replace Lupien with the high-powered duo of J.P. Barry and Pat Brisson certainly won't help matters. We expect this situation to drag into training camp.

Sidney Crosby (mumps) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's match against Colorado.

He has missed Pittsburgh's last three games with the mumps, but was back on the ice for the team's game-day skate in the morning. We would consider Crosby probable to play.

Marc-Andre Fleury has been confirmed as Pittsburgh's starting goaltender for Thursday night against Colorado.

It was feared that he had the mumps on Wednesday, but test results came back negative. Thomas Greiss is now being examined for the illness, so Fleury will get back in the cage.

The Ottawa Senators have decided to loan Curtis Lazar to Canada for the World Junior Championship.

The 19-year-old forward has one goal and six assists in 27 games for the Senators this season. He'll be expected to play a prominent role at the tournament, especially after he registered three goals and seven points in seven games for Canada last year.

Vincent Lecavalier is projected to return to the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

Lecavalier has spent six of the Flyers' last seven contests in the press box and the one exception was when he was sidelined with a lower-body injury. Flyers coach Craig Berube suggested that he wouldn't simply put Lecavalier on the fourth line, although he didn't reveal exactly what role he'll have. One possibility is that Lecavalier will play alongside Sean Couturier and Matt Read while R.J. Umberger will be dropped to the fourth line.

Marc-Andre Fleury has tested negative for the mumps, so he's been cleared to play Thursday night.

He's probable to start against Colorado because Thomas Greiss is being tested for the illness. It was initially thought that Greiss would play after Fleury was being examined for the mumps, but now the two of them have switched places.

Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves in Dallas' 2-0 win over Vancouver on Wednesday.

Lehtonen was named the game's first star for his effort. The 31-year-old set the tone early when he robbed Canucks' forward Radim Vrbata 36 seconds into the game. Lehtonen made several big saves throughout the evening to ensure Dallas would collect the two points tonight. He has now won three of his last four starts and has a 12-7-5 record with a 2.97 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.

Ottawa goalie Craig Anderson turned in a gem in New Jersey Wednesday night during a 2-0 shutout of the Devils.

Anderson made 34 saves. He nearly scored an empty-net goal, too. His shot from his own goal dribbled just wide to the right with 51.8 seconds remaining in the third period. With a second left in the third, Kyle Turris ended up with the empty-netter, his second goal of the game. Despite Turris' goals, however, it was the New Jersey offense that controlled most of the play in this one. The Sens were stuck in their zone for most of the game. The Devils (11-16-6) outshot Ottawa 34-16, but Anderson could not be beaten. It was his best performance of the season and improved his record to 7-8-4. His goals-against average is now 2.45 and his save percentage is .929.

David Krejci will suit up for the Bruins on Wednesday against the Wild.

The Bruins center will be on the ice against the Wild Wednesday, so make sure to get him in your lineup. He was skating with Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith in warmups. In 11 games this season, Krejci has three goals and seven assists and will look to continue on his near point-per-game pace starting Wednesday. Matt Fraser will now move to the press box and serve as a healthy scratch to make room for Krejci.
Dec 17 - 7:49 PM

David Krejci (groin) isn't on injured reserve, according to Boston's official website.

Coach Claude Julien called Krejci a "possibility" for Wednesday's game against Minnesota and it looks like he could be back if taking him off injured reserve is any indication. The pregame warmup should tell us more. Krejci has missed 17 of Boston's last 19 games because of a groin injury.
Dec 17 - 6:32 PM

John Gibson (groin) has been assigned to the minors.

He hasn't played since Oct. 30 because of a groin injury, which he suffered on Nov. 2 during warmups at Colorado. With Frederik Andersen and Ilya Bryzgalov in the fold for Anaheim, Gibson will be afforded some time to play in the minors. We wouldn't completely rule him out from returning to the NHL at some point, though.
Dec 17 - 5:55 PM

Pittsburgh has summoned Jeff Zatkoff from the minors.

Marc-Andre Fleury is being tested for the mumps, so Zatkoff will join the big club as a precaution. He could back up Thomas Greiss on Thursday if Fleury is unable to play.
