Ryan Garbutt and the Dallas Stars have agreed to a three-year extension.

The terms of Garbutt's deal aren't known, but it's a safe bet that he'll get a raise from his salary of $600,000 in 2013-14. He has 18 points and 61 penalty minutes in 46 games this season. "Ryan has shown that he is an effective, hard-hitting forward that plays the game with a great deal of speed and tenacity," said Stars GM Jim Nill. "Over the course of the season, he has earned the trust of his coaching staff and has played himself into a role where we ask him to play against our opponent's top players on a nightly basis. It's a great credit to the work he has put in and we're excited to have him signed."

Jaroslav Halak allowed three goals on 31 shots as the Islanders topped the Nashville Predators 4-3 on Thursday night.

Halak improves to 34-13-1, just two wins shy of league-leader Carey Price and one short of Pekka Rinne, who he beat on Thursday. His .911 save percentage and 2.48 goals against average aren't quite in the league of the two goalies mentioned, but as long as he keeps scooping up the victories, Halak is one of the best fantasy goaltenders in the game right now.

Pekka Rinne couldn't handle the potent Islanders offense on Thursday night as he surrendered four goals on 26 shots for his fourth straight loss.

Rinne has allowed 14 goals in his past four games in what has been one of his worst stretches of the season so far. Nashville has faced tough competition though with Detroit, Minnesota and both New York teams providing the losses. He still has a marvelous 35-12-3 record with a .926 save percentage and 2.14 goals against average.

Jhonas Enroth came in for a struggling Kari Lehtonen on Thursday night and earned the shootout victory over Florida by making 10 saves in regulation and another three in overtime.

Enroth came in just past the halfway point in the second period after Lehtonen had allowed three goals on 14 shots. A change in scenery was thought to be a boost to Enroth's stat line, but he's just 1-4 since joining Dallas with an .877 save percentage and 3.21 goals against average.

Alex Ovechkin (lower-body) won't play in Thursday's game against Minnesota.

Ovechkin has played in 96 consecutive games coming into this one. The last game he missed was on January 24th, 2014 in New Jersey. The 29-year-old Hart Trophy candidate has been a huge part of Washington's success this season. He has 43 goals and 67 points in 65 games this season.

Tyler Seguin (knee) skated with his teammates on Thursday for the first time.

He appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery. "Tyler is really closing in on 'day to day' for us," coach Lindy Ruff said. "So I would say probably within a week...or sooner. It depends on how he responds to some heavy workouts here today and tomorrow." Seguin is feeling better but he knows he still has work to do. Still, it's encouraging to see that he's moving in the right direction.

Trevor Daley will be out of action for two-to-four weeks, according to coach Lindy Ruff.

He was injured on a knee-on-knee hit by Islanders winger Matt Martin on Tuesday. Martin received a one-game suspension on the play.
Mar 5 - 1:20 PM

Alex Ovechkin is listed as a game-time decision for Thursday's match against Minnesota because of a lower-body injury.

He didn't take part in the morning skate and his status will be determined during the pregame warmup. Ovechkin leads the league with 43 goals and he's tied with linemate Nicklas Backstrom for the most points in the NHL with 67 in 65 games.

Brandon Dubinsky (concussion) will be back in the lineup on Friday.

That's a quick recovery after he suffered a concussion last Thursday against Montreal. Dubinsky has eight goals, 22 points and 112 hits in 34 games this season.

Roberto Luongo (shoulder) won't be available for Florida's next two games.

That means he is out for Thursday and Saturday, but the Panthers hope to have him back next Thursday when they host Winnipeg. Consider Luongo day-to-day for now, which is good news for Florida.
Mar 5 - 11:27 AM

Dan Ellis will get the nod for Florida on Thursday against Dallas.

In an interesting twist it was a year ago today that Florida acquired Ellis in a trade with the Stars for Tim Thomas. Ellis hasn't seen any NHL action this season.
Mar 5 - 11:16 AM

Dustin Byfuglien exited Wednesday's game against Ottawa in the second period with an upper-body injury.

The Jets have an off-day Thursday, but the coach Paul Maurice said they should know more about Byfuglien's status. Hopefully, for the Jets and his fantasy owners it isn't anything serious.
