Jonathan Drouin and the Tampa Bay Lightning believe heading back to junior last season made him a better player.

"As the year went on, Jonathan got better and better," GM Steve Yzerman said. "What I really like is when he went back (to juniors), he was the No. 1 penalty killer, ran the power play, played in all situations. We watched him play. He was dominating at both ends of the rink. His game evolved over one year. He got the opportunity there to do it, and I believe he's a better player because of it." Drouin feels he's further along too, but he knows he still has work to do before he can play in the NHL. "I'm closer than I was last year," he said Wednesday. "But it's not given to you. They proved it to me last year." Having said that, it would be very surprising if Drouin wasn't playing for the Lightning in 2014-15.

Mikael Granlund (groin) won't play in Friday's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

Granlund was considered a game-time decision, but the Wild clearly feel like he's still not ready to play. He had 69 points in 81 games last season.

Boone Jenner (back) seems set to make his season debut on Saturday.

Jenner wasn't available for Columbus' first seven games. However, he's been practicing with the Blue Jackets and on Friday Columbus prepared for his return by activating Jenner off the injured reserve list. Look for him to play alongside Nick Foligno and Oliver Bjorkstrand.

Philipp Grubauer is expected to start on Saturday.

Braden Holtby will start Friday night, but he won't be asked to play two days in a row. Grubauer has a 0-1-1 record, 5.85 GAA, and .844 save percentage in two contests in 2017-18.

Erik Gudbranson will serve a one-game suspension for boarding Boston's Frank Vatrano.

That will keep Gudbranson out of Friday's game, but he'll be eligible to return on Sunday. It probably helped Gudbranson's case that he hadn't previously been fined or suspended and thus was not a repeat offender.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes Friday night.

That was the plan anyways, but it was made a more obvious decision when Cory Schneider suffered a lower-body injury on Thursday. With Schneider unavailable, Scott Wedgewood will serve as Kinkaid's backup.

Cory Schneider (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Schneider couldn't complete Thursday's game due to the injury. Keep in mind that the Devils have a week off after Friday's contest, so he can be activated after missing just one game. In the meantime, Scott Wedgewood is with the Devils.

Zack Smith (upper body) will be sidelines for a minimum of one week.

Smith sustained the injury during Thursday's game against New Jersey. He's off to a good start with five assists in seven games this season, making the timing of his injury particularly unfortunate.
Oct 20 - 2:50 PM

Adam McQuaid suffered a broken right fibula during Thursday's game.

McQuaid has surgery scheduled for Monday to address the injury. He will be sidelined for about eight weeks as a result, which puts his projected return in the middle of December. He has an assist in six games this season.

Chad Johnson will get the nod Friday night.

Johnson is appearing in his third straight game. He surrendered five goals on 31 shots against Vegas on Tuesday, so this is an opportunity for him to bounce back.
Oct 20 - 2:37 PM

Thomas Greiss will be the Islanders' starter on Saturday.

Greiss is drawing into the lineup after getting two games off. He has a 1-1-1 record, 3.08 GAA, and .922 save percentage in three contests this season.
Oct 20 - 1:54 PM

Petr Mrazek is expected to start on Friday against Washington.

Mrazek will have his work cut out for him against that strong offensive club, but for what it's worth he does have a career 2.18 GAA and .925 save percentage in six games versus Washington. He has a 2.98 GAA and .900 save percentage in three contests this season.
