Francois Beauchemin (knee) is aiming to be ready for the Ducks' season opener.

Beauchemin underwent ACL reconstruction in May. The good news is that he is skating. He had 24 points in 48 games last season while averaging 23:27 minutes per contest.

Boone Jenner underwent surgery on his hand and he's expected to be sidelined for five weeks.

He suffered a broken had when he was struck by a puck in practice on Sunday. Jenner was projected to take over at center to start the season if the Jackets were unable to re-sign Ryan Johansen, but now they will have to come up with a new plan.

Robin Lehner'a preseason match against Winnipeg on Tuesday was cut short after he experienced "some swelling" in his stick hand.

He didn't play after the first period as a precaution, but coach Paul MacLean stated that Lehner would be "fine." He was slated to split the game evenly with Craig Anderson.

Gustav Nyquist (knee) will be in the lineup for Detroit on Wednesday night.

He was hurt in a knee-on-knee collision on Saturday and missed Monday's preseason contest as a result, but he'll play against Pittsburgh.

Sam Reinhart hasn't been able to produce much offense since putting on a Buffalo jersey.

He contributed one assist in four games during the Traverse City Prospects Tournament and he doesn't have a point in three NHL preseason contests. "It's getting a little frustrating," Reinhart said. "I think the biggest thing is I'm getting chances, trying to create. I'm just going to stick with it and focus on the bigger picture. But obviously that's part of my game and I think that's going to have to come." He is slated to play on Wednesday and Friday, as the Sabres wrap up their exhibition play and then a decision on where he will play this season will follow. Reinhart may be squeezed out of an NHL spot by Mikhail Grigorenko, who has enjoyed a very good training camp.

The sale of the New York Islanders has been approved by the NHL Board of Governors.

The deal isn't finalized yet, but it's certainly heading in that direction. If all goes as planned, Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin will be purchasing a minority stake in the team for now and then assume control from current owner Charles Wang in two years. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman didn't have a problem with the two-year delay before power is fully transferred, noting that it "provides an orderly transition, which was important to Charles."

Jonathan Drouin (thumb) was on the ice Tuesday at practice in a no-contact jersey.

He's hopeful that he'll be ready to play when the Lightning open the regular season on Oct. 9 versus Florida. "I'm feeling better," Drouin said. "There's still a little bit of pain, but we're going in the right direction. A couple weeks left and I'm sure I'll be fine by then. Progress has been really good."

Coach Ken Hitchcock said that Patrik Berglund will start the year on a line with David Backes and T.J. Oshie.

Berglund didn't have a successful transition from center to the wing last season, but the Blues feel it was because he wasn't given a chance to solidify himself anywhere. Perhaps a move alongside a pair of talented players will help in that regard.
Sep 30 - 4:52 PM

Alexander Steen (undisclosed) will get into St. Louis' lineup on Tuesday night.

He was held out of the team's previous two preseason contests after he got "banged up" in a scrimmage. Steen is excited to be seeing game action even if it is just the exhibition schedule. He's slated to play with Paul Stastny and Joakim Lindstrom.
Sep 30 - 4:35 PM

Eric Staal has recovered from his core muscle injury and is expected to suit up in Tuesday's exhibition game against St. Louis.

"It's been good," Staal said of his progress in training camp thus far. "I'm ready to get into game action to test that and see how it feels, but I foresee no issues moving forward." It will be his first preseason game.
Sep 30 - 3:54 PM

Claude Giroux (lower body) will dress in his first preseason game on Tuesday night.

"I'm fine and ready to go," said Giroux, who had been limited at camp due to a lower-body injury. "I want to make sure I'm ready to play against Boston (in the season opener Oct. 8), and for me to play this game tonight it's going to make me a better player for that game." He was between Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek during the morning skate. Coach Craig Berube also expects Giroux to play Thursday against Washington in another preseason outing.
Sep 30 - 2:16 PM

Kari Lehtonen suffered a mild concussion in Monday's preseason game against Florida.

He's expected to miss at least a couple of days practice as a result. Lehtonen left the game in the third period after allowing three goals on 16 shots.
