Jeremy Morin appears as though he'll be a healthy scratch Tuesday night.

Kris Versteeg is slated to return, so Morin was the odd man out. Ben Smith, Marcus Kruger and Daniel Carcillo made up the Blackhawks' fourth line. Morin has played in Chicago's first four games this year, but the highest amount of ice time he's seen is the 8:57 he played against Buffalo on Oct. 11.

Jesse Winchester (concussion) was on the ice for practice Monday.

He participated in a limited role, which makes him questionable at best for Tuesday's game against Florida. Winchester hasn't played yet this season because of a concussion he sustained in the preseason.

Jimmy Howard (groin) will be between the pipes for Detroit on Tuesday night in Montreal.

He was on 48-hour injured reserve while he recovered from a groin injury, but he's recovered now and ready to go. Get him back in your lineup if you normally would.

Scott Harrington has been assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL.

He didn't get to make his NHL debut after he was recalled from the minors a little more than a week ago. Harrington will get much more playing time in the AHL than he would with Pittsburgh anyway.
