Carey Price will play all 60 minutes of Saturday's game against Ottawa.

Price has already made one appearance this postseason, but he only played half the game. He's looking to bounce back after a terrible year in 2017-18. For the Canadiens to make the playoffs, they'll need Price to be out of this world throughout the entire 2018-19 campaign.

Casey Bailey has signed a contract with HC Slovan Bratislava of the KHL.

The 26-year-old had 18 goals and 41 points in 76 games in the AHL last season. He picked up one goal in 13 NHL games with Toronto and Ottawa.

The St. Louis Blues have assigned Tyler Wotherspoon to the minors.

The 25-year-old had seven goals and 37 points in 67 games with AHL Stockton last season. He hasn't suited up in an NHL game since he was a member of the Flames in 2016-17.

The St. Louis Blues have assigned Joey LaLeggia to the minors.

The 26-year-old signed with the Blues as a free agent last summer. He had 15 goals and 43 points in 68 games with AHL Bakersfield last season. He has never played in an NHL game.

The St. Louis Blues have assigned Brian Flynn to the minors.

The 30-year-old spent last season with AHL Texas, where he had 18 goals and 47 points in 66 games. The Blues also cut Conner Bleackley, Tanner Kaspick, Austin Poganski and Trevor Smith, as well as defensemen Joey Laleggia, Sam Lofquist and Tyler Wotherspoon and goaltenders Jordan Binnington and Evan Fitzpatrick.

Jesperi Kotkaniemi will play between Jonathan Drouin and Joel Armia on Saturday night.

With Max Domi suspended, Kotkaniemi will get a golden opportunity to produce against the Ottawa Senators. The 18-year-old has scored one goal in two preseason games so far. He has a high ceiling, but there's a good chance he'll head back to Finland after the NHL's exhibition season.

Daniel Sprong will skate on a line with Sidney Crosby during Saturday's preseason game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Sprong is arguably the Penguins' most talented prospect. He managed to pick up two goals and one assist in eight games with the Pens last season. He also added 32 goals and 65 points in 65 AHL games in 2017-18. If Sprong opens up the season on Crosby's line, he'll have a rock-solid fantasy value in all leagues. Jake Guentzel is the other forward skating on that line.

Derek Forbort (back) is skating with the team on Saturday.

Forbort joined his teammates on the ice but was wearing a red non-contact jersey. If healthy enough, he could be Drew Doughty's partner to start the season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Freddie Tiffels have come to the mutual agreement to terminate his contract.

Tiffels cleared unconditional waivers today and will join Kolner Haie of the German league. He was a sixth round pick of the Penguins in 2015.

Alex Galchenyuk (groin) could be dealing with a serious injury.

It was first reported that Galchenyuk missed practice due to a 'maintenance' day, but it appears to be much more than that. "Alex is going to meet with our medical team and undergo further evaluation," head coach Rick Tocchet said. "We’ll know something next week with him." Usually if a player is dealing with a minor injury, he'll be labeled as day-to-day but that doesn't appear to be the case here. Arizona's center depth will be tested with Dylan Strome (upper body) and Christian Dvorak (lower body) also banged up.

Kyle Connor is one player we believe will have a major fantasy impact this season.

After fitting in so well on the Jets' first line alongside Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele for the latter part of the 2017-18 campaign and with his rookie season behind him, Connor is poised to take a big step up the fantasy depth charts. Slated to play on Winnipeg's top unit again, we wouldn't be surprised if Connor flirted with a 70-point season. Draft him accordingly.
Sep 22 - 1:10 PM

Robby Fabbri (back/hip) is practicing with the rest of his teammates.

We wouldn't expect much from Fabbri this season considering he has missed over 100 straight games due to a torn ACL suffered in February of 2017. He could be a name to keep an eye on in the second half of the season. He'll need to get over his two new injuries if he hopes to have any shot at an early season impact.

The Wild have assigned goalie Kaapo Kahnonen and 22 others to Iowa of the AHL.

Joing Kahkonen to the AHL will be: goalie C.J. Motte, rearguards Louie Belpedio, Gustav Bouramman, Eric Martinsson and Brennan Menell and forwards Colton Beck, Gerry Fitzgerald, Pavel Jenys, Chase Lang, Gerald Mayhew, Dante Salituro, Mason Shaw and Dmitry Sokolov. Needless to say, none have fantasy value this season.

Patrice Bergeron (back) is scheduled to be back on the ice on Sunday.

Bergeron has been sidelined throughout camp so far as he continues to recover from a back injury. The good news is that the current plan is for Boston's star center to play in one or two of the last preseason homes games and if all goes well, he'll be ready for the regular season. He can be drafted him with little to no risk involved.

Tyler Seguin was on the ice with his Dallas teammates for Saturday morning's practice.

The Stars held Seguin out of Friday's session because he was a little nicked up, according Dallas coach Jim Montgomery. There doesn't appear to be anything to worry about, Seguin owners.
