Latest Headlines

Scott Clemmensen is expected to miss three weeks after undergoing minor knee surgery.

Based on that timeline, it is possible for Clemmensen to be available for the start of the season, but it wouldn't surprise us if he ends up missing some playing time. Aside from Jacob Markstrom, the only other goaltender the Panthers currently have under contract is Michael Houser, who is 20 years old and spent the 2012-13 campaign in the ECHL. We suspect the Panthers will sign a more experience goaltender to a two-way contract or invite them to training camp on a tryout basis to hedge their bets.

Darcy Kuemper will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

He has a 9-1-3 record with a 2.04 goals-against-average and a .934 save percentage this season. Kuemper has won each of his last four decisions and he's given two goals or fewer in each of those victories.

Juuse Saros will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The move isn't too surprising considering Pekka Rinne played against Ottawa last night. Saros has a 5-5-5 record with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage this season.

Updating an earlier item, Brent Burns will be fine to play Tuesday night.

Burns sat out the last 16:35 of the third period Sunday with the Sharks winning 5-0, but he was back on the ice for the morning skate Tuesday and he will play against the Blues. "Had the score not been what it was, I would guess that he probably would have battled through," coach Pete DeBoer said. "It just made sense in all our parts to do the right thing considering the situation."

Erik Gudbranson has signed a three-year contract extension with Vancouver.

Gudbranson's new deal will have an average annual value of $4 million. "Erik is an important part of our team and provides a physical element to our blueline," said GM Jim Benning in a statement. "His leadership qualities help us as we continue to integrate younger players in our lineup. He is a quality person, a great teammate, outstanding in the community and we are excited to have him as part of our team moving forward." Gudbranson has four points, 99 hits and 64 blocks in 41 games this season.

Boston has acquired Nick Holden from the New York Rangers in exchange for Rob O'Gara and a 2018 third-round pick.

Holden can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He has three goals and 12 points in 55 games this campaign. Holden will provide the Bruins with some additional depth on the back end. He posted career highs in 2016-17 with 11 goals and 34 points in 80 contests.

Alex Lyon will start for Philadelphia Tuesday versus Montreal.

Newly-acquired netminder Petr Mrazek practiced with the team in the morning and he will serve as the backup goaltender. He will probably start Thursday against Columbus. Lyon picked up his first NHL win Sunday when he entered the game in relief for an injured Michal Neuvirth.
Feb 20 - 12:02 PM

Mike Green will not return from an upper-body injury on Tuesday night.

Green participated in the morning skate, but said afterward that he wouldn't play against Nashville. He is eyeing Thursday's match versus Buffalo for a return to the fold.
Feb 20 - 11:25 AM

Wayne Simmonds will be out of action for 2-3 weeks because of an upper-body injury.

Simmonds had appeared in all 59 games this season, while recording 20 goals and 37 points. His injury explains why Philadelphia called up Oskar Lindblom from the minors on Monday night.
Feb 20 - 10:51 AM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.

Neuvirth was injured on Feb. 18 against the New York Rangers. The Flyers acquired Petr Mrazek from Detroit on Monday night because Brian Elliott is also out with a long-term injury.
Feb 20 - 10:46 AM

Shea Weber (foot) remains on the sidelines and it's unclear if he will play before the end of the regular season.

Coach Claude Julien said that Weber isn't feeling comfortable yet with his rehab from a foot injury, so he has been shut down from skating again. The team won't put him back in the lineup until he is 100 percent and time is running out on the 2017-18 season. The veteran blueliner hasn't played since Dec. 16 and the Canadiens have 24 matches left on the schedule.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are reportedly interested in acquiring Michael Grabner from the New York Rangers.

The Penguins would seem to be a good fit for Grabner given his speed and scoring ability. His $1.65 million annual cap hit is also light enough that the Penguins shouldn't have an issue fitting him in. It might be that the Rangers will be reluctant to trade within their division, but given that the Rangers are now focused on the future, the return is expected to be their biggest concern. So at the end of the day, the big question is likely if the Penguins will be the top bidder for his services or not. If they are then it will be pretty exciting to see which line he ends up on.
