Jeff Carter left Wednesday night's game against Montreal early because of a lower-body injury.

Carter logged just 6:55 of ice time before leaving the contest. Coach John Stevens said that Carter needed to be evaluated further and an update on his status could come Thursday. A team source said, "Going to be a little while" when mentioning the severity of the injury, which isn't an optimistic outlook. We will keep you posted when the Kings state something official on the matter.

Jaromir Jagr has been practicing on a line with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.

Jagr has gotten some ice time with that duo already, but he might skate alongside them more regularly Thursday night. "I think that Johnny and Monny are just fantastic off the rush," said Flames head coach Glen Gulutzan on Wednesday. "And with Ferly (Micheal Ferland) being injured there for a couple of days, it was a chance to see how Jags would look in that position. For me, the biggest thing he can give them is that zone-time. He’s just so good at holding pucks in the offensive zone, and I think we’ve seen that even before he’s gotten fully up to speed. I think what he’s going to add is just that offensive zone-time. Johnny and Monny are the best in the league at creating off the rush and off broken plays and that sort of thing, but to create more zone-time for both of those guys would be a huge advantage." This could be a nice boost for Jagr, who has an assist in three games so far this season.

Sami Vatanen (shoulder) might be able to make his return during the Ducks' upcoming four-game road trip.

In other words, Vatanen isn't expected to be available on Friday, but anything after that is a real possibility. "Well, it’s close," Vatanen said. "But it’s not quite there for me right now. It’s getting close. It might be just a little while more and we’re ready to play. I want to feel that I’m ready to take the hits and I’ll be ready to give some hits." He had three goals and 24 points in 71 contests last season.

Hampus Lindholm (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

The stage seems to be set for Lindholm to return on Friday, although that hasn't been firmed up yet. That would be great news for Anaheim given that there was a time when he was expected to be out until Nov. 1. If he does return, he will likely be paired with Josh Manson.

Adrian Kempe scored three goals with an assist, a plus-4 rating, a blocked shot and a hit in Wednesday's 5-1 win against the Canadiens.

Kempe, Mike Cammalleri and Trevor Lewis shined all night, combining for 10 points (five goals and five assists). It was Kempe's first-career NHL hat trick to help L.A. to its best six-game home start in club history. Kempe entered the game with just two goals and six points over his first 30 NHL games, so don't get terribly excited and add him to a fantasy roster just yet.

Jaden Schwartz scored a hat trick in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Schwartz came into tonight's game with two goals in six games. The Blues forward opened the scoring at the 4:46 mark of the first period. He then made it 2-0 5:59 into the second, and he completed the hat trick with an empty-netter in the final minute of the third frame. Schwartz now has five goals and six assists in seven games this season. Vladimir Tarasenko and Kyle Brodziak also found the back of the net for the Blues.

Jimmy Howard was given the hook in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Howard allowed goals on the first two shots he faced. In total, the Wings goalie stopped just one of four shots. He lasted just 15:46 before backup Petr Mrazek entered the game. Despite the ugly outing for Howard, he didn't end up factoring in tonight's decision. He has a 3-1-0 record with a 2.54 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season.
Oct 18 - 10:51 PM

Auston Matthews scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Matthews' goal at the 15:46 mark of the first period pushed Toronto's lead to 3-1 at the time. He also registered the primary assist on William Nylander's empty-netter late in the third period. Matthews has now picked up a point in six of the Maple Leafs' seven games. The 20-year-old is up to six goals, four assists and a plus-10 rating in seven contests. The Leafs have won six of their first seven games for the seventh time in franchise history.

Ryan Spooner sustained a right groin adductor tear on Sunday.

Spooner is expected to need four-to-six weeks to recover. In other words, don't expect him back until mid-November at the earliest. He has an assist in five games with the Bruins this season.

David Schlemko underwent surgery to remove a bone fragment in his hand.

Schlemko will need three-to-four weeks to recover. The timing of his injury is particularly unfortunate given that the 30-year-old defenseman had just been recalled on Saturday.

Al Montoya will be the Canadiens' starter on Wednesday.

That will provide Carey Price, who has struggled out of the gate, his first game off of the campaign. Montoya had a 2.67 GAA and .912 save percentage in 19 contests this season.
