The Washington Capitals have locked up Matt Niskanen to a seven-year deal worth $40.25 million.

"We are very excited that Matt Niskanen has chosen to sign with Washington," said GM Brian MacLellan. "At 27 years of age, he is just entering his prime for a defenseman. We feel he will be a staple on our blueline for many years to come. We have stated all along that upgrading the defense was our top priority this offseason and we feel we accomplished our goal with our signings today." He racked up 10 goals and 46 points in 81 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins last season. Niskanen will add another weapon to Washington's top-ranked power play.

Joonas Donskoi (lower body) is probable for Thursday's game.

Dec 13 - 4:06 PM

Auston Matthews (upper body) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Matthews is consequently expected to miss Thursday's game. It will be his third straight contest on the sidelines.
Dec 13 - 3:39 PM

Ryan Johansen (upper body) is a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Johansen took part in Wednesday's practice. He has three goals and 17 points in 26 contests this season. If he does play, it will likely be on a line with Nick Bonino and Viktor Arvidsson.
Dec 13 - 3:14 PM

Anders Nilsson will be the Canucks' starter on Wednesday.

Nilsson will be making his second start in the span of three games. He has a 6-3-1 record, 2.71 GAA, and .921 save percentage in 10 contests this season.
Dec 13 - 3:06 PM

Taylor Hall is day-to-day with a knee contusion.

Hall won't be able to play on Thursday, but the news overall is good. He went down with a knee-to-knee collision on Tuesday, so there was a chance that his injury would be more severe than this.
Dec 13 - 1:12 PM

Brandon Dubinsky is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks with a fractured orbital bone.

In other words, Dubinsky is expected to be sidelined until late December or early January. He was hurt while fighting Edmonton's Zack Kassian on Tuesday. He has three goals and 12 points in 31 contests this season.
Dec 13 - 1:01 PM

Kari Lehtonen is expected to start for Dallas on Wednesday.

With this start, Lehtonen will set the record for the most games played by a Finnish goaltender. A victory on Wednesday would also make Lehtonen the 33rd netminder in history to reach the 300-win milestone.
Dec 13 - 12:57 PM

Marcus Johansson (ankle) hasn't resumed skating.

With that in mind, Johansson has been ruled out for Thursday's game in Montreal. He won't even join the Devils on the one-game road trip. It will be his second straight contest on the sidelines.
Dec 13 - 12:31 PM

Taylor Hall (knee) wasn't on the ice for Wednesday's morning skate.

Hall was hurt when he suffered a knee-on-knee hit during Tuesday's game. We don't know yet if he'll travel with the Devils to Montreal ahead of Thursday's contest versus the Canadiens.
Dec 13 - 12:29 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury returned to action Tuesday against the Hurricanes and he allowed two goals on 37 shots in a shootout loss.

It was Fleury's first appearance since Oct. 13 due to a concussion. He looked pretty sharp considering the lengthy layoff, but it's no surprise that once the game went to a shootout he might be at a disadvantage. Bench boss Gerard Gallant made it known the veteran would be making a majority of the starts now that he is healthy, so that's bad news for Malcolm Subban and any other Golden Knights backstops who held down the fort in Fleury's absence.
Dec 13 - 1:31 AM

Cam Ward allowed two goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout victory at Vegas, his 300th career win.

Ward is the 32nd goaltender in NHL history to reach 300 victories. He and the Hurricanes didn't have a lot of success last season in the shootout, and they dropped their past three games by one goal. So this was an impressive show of moxie by the young Hurricanes, beating one of the league's best teams at home so far this season. Ward has now won two of his past three starts.
