The Dallas Morning News reports that Kari Lehtonen probably isn't ready to play in either of the Dallas Stars' weekend back-to-back games, opening the door for at least one more Dan Ellis start.

Ellis has been more than competent for the Stars, helping Dallas end San Jose's unbeaten streak on Thursday. Lehtonen owners might as well pencil in 5-8 starts lost to injury each year, but hopefully this is a road bump to another strong season. Either way, Ellis is a smart pick-up, especially if you add/drop frequently.

Tyler Seguin captured the league's first star of the week for the period ending Oct. 19.

He racked up eight points (four goals, four assists) in three games to lead the NHL in scoring. Seguin's fifth career hat trick came in a 4-2 victory over Columbus last Tuesday and collected a career-high four assists in a 6-5 overtime defeat to Philadelphia this past Saturday.

John Gibson is back with the Ducks after playing in two games with AHL Norfolk.

Anaheim plays Wednesday, Friday and Sunday this week, so there's a chance that Gibson could see his second NHL start of the season.

Semyon Varlamov (groin) will be back in Colorado's crease on Friday against Vancouver.

The Avalanche will go with Reto Berra, if he's ready, on Tuesday versus Florida, but he can't play then Calvin Pickard will probably get the nod. Varlamov has missed the past two games with a groin injury.

T.J. Brodie has agreed to a five-year extension with the Calgary Flames.

According to Elliotte Friedman, Brodie's new contract will have an annual average value of $4.65 million. The 24-year-old blueliner co-leads the league in scoring among defensemen with seven points and three goals in seven games.

Jonathan Drouin won't be in the lineup on Monday night.

He played back-to-back games in the AHL on Friday and Saturday prior to his recall on Sunday. Drouin also attended practice with the Lightning on Monday, so it's been a busy few days. The talented rookie is expected to play soon, as Tampa Bay continues their road trip.

It looks like Pavel Datsyuk (shoulder) is close to returning to Detroit's lineup.

He practiced on the Wings' top line Monday with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. Datsyuk also saw tome on the top power-play unit. A decision on his status won't be made until after Tuesday's game-day skate, but he may play against Montreal.

Patrik Nemeth (arm) will miss the rest of the regular season.

That's troubling news for the promising 22-year-old defenseman. Nemeth's arm was cut by a skate in Saturday's game against Philadelphia and it will cost him the remainder of the 2014-15 campaign after just five appearances.
Oct 20 - 2:03 PM

Victor Hedman (hand) is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks.

That's a significant blow to the Lightning. Hedman was off to a fantastic start this season, with three goals and seven points in five games, after he broke out offensively last year. He will undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a fractured finger.

Paul Stastny is being listed as week-to-week with a shoulder injury.

He was wearing a sling Sunday after he was injured on Saturday. Keep him on your bench for now.

Slava Voynov has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL.

Voynov was arrested this morning on charges of domestic violence. The NHL is conducting an investigation into the matter. This comes after the intense scrutiny the NFL faced for its handling of its recent domestic violence incidents, including the initial two-game suspension of Ray Rice, which was seen by many as light under the circumstances.

Curtis McElhinney (head/neck) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

McElhinney will consequently be out for at least a week. It's not clear if he suffered a concussion. Officially, the Blue Jackets have announced that he has an upper-body injury despite coach Todd Richards admitting that the injury is to his head.
