A childhood dream may soon come true for Mike Liambas.

"I've waited a pretty long time for this opportunity, so I'm trying to make the best of it, and it's been an unbelievable experience so far," Liambas said. This is the 27-year-old's first experience with NHL ice, as he has spent his entire professional career in the minors including the last five years with Milwaukee. "If I do get in the lineup, maybe I'll almost play head games with myself, pretend I'm still playing in Milwaukee so I don't get nervous," Liambas said.

Brett Kulak will be scratched against the Wild on Friday.

Kulak has posted just three points in 15 games this season along with eight hits and nine blocks. Unfortunately the 23-year-old has yet to find his footing in the NHL.
Dec 2 - 7:59 PM

Hunter Shinkaruk will watch Friday's match against the Wild from the press box.

Through seven games this season the youngster has just one point with three blocks and hits. So far, he simply hasn't impressed.
Dec 2 - 7:57 PM

Gustav Olofsson will be scratched on Friday against the Flames.

The 22-year-old has yet to make a dent on the stat sheet through three NHL games. However he does have three goals and 12 points in 21 games for AHL Iowa.
Dec 2 - 7:54 PM

Zack Mitchell will be scratched against the Flames on Friday.

The 23-year-old is still searching for his first NHL point through 10 games. Unfortunately, it would appear he's still finding his way and is better suited for the waiver wire.
Dec 2 - 7:53 PM

Carlo Colaicovo has moved on from the NHL and has signed with Adler Mannheim of the DEL in Germany.

The 33-year-old appears to have finished his NHL career with 470 games spread over 13 years with Toronto, St. Louis, Detroit, Philadelphia and finally Buffalo. He scored 34 goals and 157 points.
Dec 2 - 7:34 PM

The Avalanche will play Semyon Varlamov in net against the Stars on Saturday.

In two games this season versus Dallas, Varlamov has allowed eight goals on 50 shots and has split his two decisions. That doesn't spell much confidence, especially given how much Colorado has struggled this season.
Dec 2 - 7:24 PM

The Maple Leafs will have Frederik Andersen in net against the Canucks on Saturday.

After an October to forget, Andersen posted one of the best November's in the league. He went 8-4 with a .931 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA. He's also already shutout the Canucks this season (on 26 shots), so we could be in for another sterling event.
Dec 2 - 6:42 PM

Shane Doan passed Wayne Gretzky on the all-time games played list for 19th all time.

Through 1,488 games, the all-time leader in basically everything in Coyotes history has 398 goals and 951 points. While he may never catch Gretzky in other grander notes, the Coyotes beloved Captain has a real chance to finish his time with a couple of big shiny round numbers.
Dec 2 - 6:29 PM

Martin Jones will take on Montreal on Friday.

Jones has been stellar lately, winning four of his last five with a shutout and five goals against over that span. His November was back up to the stature we've become familiar with of him, posting a 7-5-1 with a pair of shutouts, .924 save percentage and a 1.96 GAA.

Carey Price will tempt the waters of San Jose.

So to speak, anyway. Price has played the Sharks well over his career, even if the wins haven't necessarily followed. In seven games he's 2-4-1 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.70 GAA. We'd still go ahead and roll with the former-MVP.
Dec 2 - 6:20 PM

The NHLPA has rejected an NHL proposal where the league would agree to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in exchange for a three-year extension to the CBA.

NHLPA executive director Don Fehr still hopes to work out a deal that would allow the players to participate in the Olympics, but not on those terms. If the players had agreed to the proposal, then the existing CBA would have been extended to 2025. Part of the NHL's hesitation to participate in the Olympics stemmed from the idea that the IIHF and IOC wouldn't cover costs of insurance, accommodation, and travel that could run up to $10 million. However, IIHF president Rene Fasel recently suggested that those costs could be covered for the NHL. Still, Olympic participate means suspending the NHL temporarily during the heart of the season and putting star players at risk of injury outside of NHL games. NHL players have participated in the last five Olympics though.

Chad Johnson will get his ninth start over the last 11 games on Friday against the Wild.

Over his last eight starts the veteran underdog has posted a 6-2 record with three shutouts and 12 goals against, giving him a beastly .951 save percentage. Ride the wave.
Dec 2 - 6:17 PM

Devan Dubnyk will face Calgary on Friday.

The Great Wall of St. Paul has been one of the game's best netminders this season, as he continues to rock a .946 save percentage and 1.66 GAA. Dubnyk hasn't seen much of difference from month to month nor whether home or away. He even beat the Flames earlier in the season with just one goal against. So we'd play him with confidence tonight.
