Nicklas Backstrom had two fractures in his right index finger.

Backstrom missed four playoff games due to a hand injury and now we have the specifics. He won't need to have off-season surgery, which is good news. He played in every game of the Stanley Cup Final, though, and collected seven points (one goal, six assists) in five outings. Backstrom was a major contributor in the Capitals' championship run with five goals and 23 points in 20 postseason games.

Mikko Rantanen missed practice on Sunday because of a minor leg injury.

Rantanen was injured in Thursday's practice and Colorado has been cautious with him. He did not practice Friday or play in Saturday's preseason match against Minnesota. Rantanen won't be back in the fold on Monday versus Vegas because the top line of the Avalanche wasn't scheduled to play in that contest. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Tyler Johnson did not practice on Sunday because of an upper-body injury.

Johnson is listed as day-to-day. "We're optimistic that he'll be ready for the season opener but there are no guarantees," said Lightning GM Julien BriseBois. "In any event, we don't expect this to be something that will be long term."

Micheal Ferland is listed as day-to-day due to a lower-body injury.

Paul Byron has signed a four-year contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

Byron's new deal has an average annual value of $3.4 million. He has been a 20-goal scorer for Montreal in each of the last two seasons, but he went from 43 points in 2016-17 to 35 points in 2017-18.

Erik Haula played on the right wing with Paul Stastny and Max Pacioretty as his linemates Saturday.

Haula has always been a center but with the free-agent signing of Stastny, he was bumped to the third line on the depth charts at center. The move to the right will give him a chance to be a top-six forward this season and playing with Pacioretty and Stastny will provide him with great linemates. He had 29 goals and 55 points last season and a bump to 30-35 goals and 60 points could be in the cards for Haula. Draft him in deeper leagues and he is also worth a shot in some shallow pools at the end of the draft.

Potential fantasy owners will love to hear the news that Kris Letang looks to be back to the blueliner he was a couple of seasons ago.

That blueliner was one of the best in the NHL but Letang has not looked that way in the last two seasons as he has battled injuries and illness. But in Saturday's game Letang looked great, making some magic with Sidney Crosby. "I think he’s in a much different place than he was a year ago," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He’s got a full summer of training. His fitness level is where he expects it to be. I think he’s still working on his timing and things of that nature that every player who is coming back from the offseason is working on at this point, but I think he’s in a very different place than he was a year ago and that’s good for us." Look for a big season from Letang and if he can stay healthy, a 70 point season could be in the cards. Draft thinking 55-60 points but there is upside here.

Connor McDavid's Edmonton teammates think he is better and faster this season.

We are talking already about the best and fastest player in the world so these are encouraging words for fantasy owners. McDavid has led the NHL in scoring the last two years, putting up 108 points in 2017-18 and should be in line for more should he stay healthy. "He’s played very well in practice and done really well in the games," coach Todd McLellan said. "You hope a player gets better every year he’s in the league and eventually peaks. He’s still a young guy. I know he’s craving to become a better player and produce more on both sides of the puck. If he’s moving in that direction we’ll have an even better player."

Filip Zidina scored his first goal of the preseason during Saturday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Boston Bruins.

Zadina took a feed from Niklas Kronwall and one-timed a shot on the power play to open the scoring. Zadina is in a battle for a spot on Detroit’s roster but a minor groin injury has so far limited him in camp. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the 18-year-old sent back to the QMJHL after getting in a couple of regular-season games with Detroit. Dennis Cholowski and Evgeni Svechnikov (OT winner) also scored.

Anthony Beauvillier scored a couple of goals during Saturday’s 5-2 preseason win over the New York Rangers.

Beauvillier’s first goal was a shot through traffic while his second came in off the rush. He played tonight’s game alongside Mathew Barzal and Josh Bailey and can hold fantasy value as long as he’s alongside Barzal. Anders Lee, Ryan Pulock and Josh Bailey also scored in the win. Beauvillier is shaping into a fantasy sleeper and his situation going into the tail end of camp should be closely monitored.

Kyle Turris got a couple of assists during Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Turris’ production slightly dipped after his move to Nashville last season and his game fail apart in the playoffs when he picked up only three assists in 13 games. He played tonight’s game with Calle Jarnkrok and Viktor Arvidsson but might start the season with different linemates. He’ll hold fantasy value and should be good for 55+ points this season if he remains healthy.

Charlie Coyle scored three goals during Saturday's 7-0 preseason win over the Colorado Avalanche.

Two of the three goals came less than six minutes apart in the second period. He also added another one in the third frame. The 26-year-old underwent surgery on both wrists back in May, so it's encouraging to see him produce in exhibition games. Coyle had 11 goals and 37 points in 66 games last season. He's capable of chipping in much more offensively. Jason Zucker, Matt Read, Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise also found the back of the net for Minnesota in the victory.
