Alexander Edler (lower body) won't play Friday and he's out indefinitely pending further evaluation.

He appeared to injure his right knee in Tuesday's game at Nashville. Edler has struggled out of the gate this season with only nine points and a minus-12 rating. His spot in the lineup will be occupied by Andrew Alberts for the time being.

Patric Hornqvist will face his former teammates from Nashville for the first time on Saturday.

The Predators will host the Penguins as Hornqvist and Nick Spaling will make their first appearance back in Nashville since the off-season deal. The deal has worked out for both sides thus far with Hornqvist compiling four goals and eight points in six games while James Neal, who went to the Predators has five goals for Nashville in the early going.

The Philadelphia Flyers, in dire need of help on the blueline, could be interested in the services of Ryan Whitney.

After Whitney was released from his professional tryout with the St. Louis Blues after training camp, Whitney was not on anyone's radar so he signed a geal with HC Sochi of the KHL. The fortunate part is that Whitney has an out clause with Sochi and he has yet to play a game with the club. If he does play at least one game, he will have to go through waivers if he re-signs with an NHL squad this season, so the time frame to sign him is narrowing quickly. The Flyers lost two defensemen this week as Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald are both expected to miss four weeks with injuries.

Rookie Johnny Gaudreau is a plus-four in eight games thus far this season.

The speedy rookie has a goal and two assists as well. Gaudreau spent a game in the press box a week ago and has been on fire ever since, giving the Flames no reason to have him just watch games. He is worth having on your fantasy roster in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Corey Perry had another great night, netting a pretty goal and assist as well as screening for a third Anaheim goal in their 4-1 win over Columbus on Friday night.

Perry took Sami Vatanen's slap-pass by the goal line and dangled his way across Sergei Bobrovsky's crease for a dazzling powerplay goal to open the scoring 88-seconds in. Seven minutes later he was the screen for Vatanen's PPG. Later he set up Devante Smith-Pelley slick redirection to make it 3-1 by mid game. Perry just might be out for another MVP trophy this season.

Cory Schneider stood tall Friday night against Dallas, turning away 35-37 shots through overtime before losing 3-2 in the shootout.

I'd say, "again", but this is just the first shootout loss of the season. Schneider was a big reason why the Devils even got one point against Dallas, turning away several solid scoring chances throughout the game. However, Patrick Eaves' goal to make it 2-1 Dallas was very soft. Schneider needs to seal the short side on that one, just as he had to be better in the shootouts. Jamie Benn's winner was equally soft, albeit to the far side. Continue to deploy Schneider with confidence.

Joe Pavelski is expected serve as the San Jose Sharks' third-line center on Saturday.

Pavelski's projected linemates are Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney. Pavelski has gotten off to a great start with four goals and eight points in eight games, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan thinks moving Pavelski down to the third line will help them defensively. "We're kind of going in waves where we have a line or two that's responsible and then one that falls off, and it varies," McLellan said. "It’s not just the top lines or the third or fourth lines. It varies. We're trying to find some balance defensively. I think offensively we've been fine." Pavelski has been playing primarily with Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl this season.

Alex Stalock will start for the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Stalock has a 2.33 GAA and .933 save percentage in three games this season. He'll play against the Buffalo Sabres, which are typically a favorable team for opposing goaltenders.

John Gibson is expected to start in Friday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Gibson played in the Ducks' season opener against Pittsburgh, but he allowed six goals on 39 shots in that game. Frederik Andersen started in Anaheim's second game and has gone on an impressive 6-0-0 run. In the middle of that, Gibson asked the Ducks if he could be temporarily reassigned to the minors so that he could get in a couple starts. Thanks to Gibson's decision to play in the AHL, he shouldn't be rusty going into this contest.
Oct 24 - 4:46 PM

Mikhail Grabovski (concussion) might return on Saturday.

Grabovski had a positive skate on Friday, but his availability won't be determined until after he participates in Saturday's practice. He hasn't played since Oct. 16. Before being sidelined, he had two goals and three points in four games.
Oct 24 - 2:34 PM

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to start on Saturday.

Gustavsson earned a 30-save shutout in his first and so far only start of the season. He's a solid backup, but isn't a threat to take the starting gig from Jimmy Howard.

Billionaire William Foley is reportedly interested in putting an NHL team in Las Vegas.

Based on the report, Foley's goal is to have the team established for the NHL's 100th anniversary in 2017-18. It's believed that Foley might achieve that by purchasing the Arizona Coyotes. Andrew Barroway recently reached a deal to gain a controlling stake in the team, but is reportedly willing to flip the team. The NHL won't comment on whether they've had discussions with Foley, but they did deny any reports suggesting that Foley has plans to buy the Coyotes and move them to Las Vegas. Another possibility is that the NHL will expand and Vegas will get a team that way.
