Casey Cizikas (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Danny Kristo and a 2017 second-round pick from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Ron Hainsey.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired Ron Hainsey from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2017 second-round selection and Danny Kristo.

The Hurricanes will retain half of Hainsey's remaining $2,833,333 annual cap hit. Hainsey is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has four goals and 14 points in 56 contests this season and has averaged 22:20 minutes per contest. He'll be a big help to the Penguins given that they're missing defensemen Justin Schultz, Trevor Daley, and Olli Maatta due to injuries.
Feb 23 - 10:32 AM

Trevor Daley has undergone knee surgery and will miss six weeks as a result.

Daley was hurt during Tuesday's game. He has five goals and 19 points in 54 games this season. The Penguins' defense was already depleted due to the loss of Justin Schultz and Olli Maatta. With that in mind, the Penguins also acquired blueliner Ron Hainsey from Carolina.

Andrej Sekera was injured in Wednesday's win over Florida.

He went straight to the dressing room after he was hit by a shot from Aaron Ekblad early in the second period. Sekera may have hurt his arm on the play. He tired to return, but was on the ice for two brief shifts before he had to leave again. "How badly was he hurt? Enough to not finish the game but I think it's more of a soft-tissue muscle thing than anything else (broken bone)," said coach Todd McLellan. "We'll see how he is tomorrow (Thursday)."

The Washington Capitals have sent Travis Boyd to the minors.

Boyd's NHL stint ended up only lasting a couple days. He didn't play for Washington over that span, but he does have 11 goals and 43 points in 53 AHL contests in 2016-17.

Rene Bourque (head) has been skating in a no-contact jersey.

"Seems to be going well on the ice," said coach Jared Bednar. "He's still going to have to pass a few tests in order to get cleared to play. Hopefully he's in in the near future." He has been sidelined since Feb. 1 with a head injury.

Avalanche coach Jared Bednar is hopeful that Erik Johnson will return to the lineup soon.

Johnson thinks he'll be ready for Saturday's match versus Buffalo, but Bednar is taking a more conservative approach. He said that Saturday is "the target date here if everything keeps going the way it's been progressing. He's been out a significant length of time, so he'll probably get eased into that a little bit." Johnson hasn't played since Dec. 3 because of a broken fibula.

Alexey Marchenko will make his Leafs debut on Thursday night versus the Rangers.

He was claimed off waivers from Detroit nearly three weeks ago and finally gets the chance to play because of an injury to Connor Carrick. "There was nothing I could do but be patient and work hard in practice," Marchenko said. "I've tried to adjust to the team and the city, move into a new place. I've been here for the World Cup and playing against the Marlies for a couple of years." He is projected to be paired with Jake Gardiner.

Jonathan Drouin didn't practice on Wednesday due to body maintenance.

That would normally not be a big deal, but Tampa Bay brought up Cory Conacher from AHL Syracuse for insurance. Drouin's status will be something to watch for going into Thursday's match against Calgary. We will keep him as active for now.
