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.

Roman Josi has been named the Predators' eighth captain in franchise history.

Josi is also the second Swiss-born captain in league history. He has led the Predators in ice time per game in each of the past three years. Josi accounted for 12 goals and 49 points in 72 matches last season. Nashville also announced that Ryan Ellis will serve as "associate captain," while Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Mattias Ekholm will be alternate captains.

Zach Sanford has a dislocated left shoulder that will require surgery.

Sanford will be sidelined for five to six months. He was injured just 15 minutes into the first practice of camp. Sanford had five points in 13 matches with the Blues last season.

Jay Bouwmeester's lower-body injury is a fractured left ankle.

He will be re-evaluated in three weeks, which means he will miss at least the remainder of training camp and the first week of the regular season. Bouwmeester was injured during a team scrimmage.

Colin White will be out of action for six-to-eight weeks after he suffered a broken left wrist on Monday night.

White was hurt blocking a shot in preseason action against Toronto and he underwent surgery Tuesday morning. He is slated to skate during his recovery to maintain his conditioning. It was expected that White would be able to claim a roster spot out of training camp because of Derick Brassard's shoulder injury, but now he'll miss the start of the regular season.

Nico Hischier scored in his first career preseason game as the Devils earned a 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals Monday night.

Hischier was taken with the first overall pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. While he might not have the same kind of impact that recent top picks Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews have had, Hischier obviously still has a lot of upside. He's a great pick in keeper leagues even if we would pencil him in for 40-50 points for the 2017-18 campaign. Kyle Palmieri, Stefan Noesen, and Mirco Mueller netted the Devils' other three goals. Nathan Walker found the back of the net for Washington.

Mikko Koivu has signed a two-year, $11 million contract extension with the Minnesota Wild.

Koivu is entering the final season of his seven-year, $47.25 million contract, so he's now locked up through the 2019-20 campaign. That means he'll be 37-years-old by the time his extension ends. In that context, the $5.5 million cap hit he'll receive during his new contract seems reasonable. There's obviously an element of risk there given his age, but he's solid offensively and a strong defensive center. He also means a lot to the organization as the only full-time captain the Wild have ever had and he's the franchise leader in both games played and points.

21-year-old Tyler Wong scored Las Vegas' first pre-season goal in franchise history on Sunday night, then added three more points in the 9-4 blowout over Vancouver.

Wong made sure Vegas lit the lamp in style for the first goal in Golden Knights history. Taking a stunning flip pass from Cody Glass that split the Canucks' defense, Wong stormed down the wing and lifted a backhander into the net for an early 1-0 lead. Wong ended the night with a hat trick and an assist, picking up right where he left off from his 109-point season in the WHL last year.

The Arizona Coyotes have acquired Jason Demers from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jamie McGinn.

Demers had nine goals and 28 points in 81 contests with Florida in 2016-17. He's got a shot at being a second pairing defenseman with the Coyotes. "We are very pleased to add Jason to our blueline corps," said Coyotes GM John Chayka. "Jason is a skilled right-handed shot defenseman who moves the puck well and has good offensive ability. He will be a great addition to our team." It's worth noting that the Panthers are also retaining 12.5% of Demers' annual $4.5 million cap hit.

Alexander Radulov was skating alongside Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn at practice on Sunday.

Well, we knew that was coming. New coach Ken Hitchcock has to make a decision as to whether Radulov is a fit with his two superstars. If he is, then Radulov becomes a very valuable fantasy commodity. Keep an eye on this situation going forward.

The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly hired Dean Lombardi.

Lombardi has been available for hire since he was let go by the Los Angeles Kings during the off-season. According to TSN's Pierre LeBrun, Lombardi will be working under Flyers GM Ron Hextall. Lombardi was the GM of the Kings when they won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014. Of course, Hextall was Lombardi's assistant GM in Los Angeles.

Zach Aston-Reese is skating on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel in training camp

This trio has been skating together for the first two days of training camp, which is kind of telling. Aston-Reese probably won't play there during the regular season, but the Pens want to see what he could do with elite offensive players. There's a chance Aston-Reese could crack the Penguins roster this fall. The 23-year-old had 63 points in 38 games with Northeastern University last season. He added eight points in 10 games in the AHL.
