"He tweaked it a little 3-on-3 down low in our skate [Tuesday]," coach Bill Peters said. "He could play easily today, but we're not going to force the issue this time of the year. If this was [opening night] against Vancouver in Vancouver, he'd be in the lineup."

Jake DeBrusk netted two goals in Wednesday's 3-1 preseason win over Calgary

Alex Lyon sustained a lower-body injury prior to Tuesday's game.

That prevented Lyon from participating in the preseason contest as he was originally scheduled to do. Lyon was able to participate in the pregame warmups though, so he either suffered the issue at the last minute or he was testing the ailment before it was ultimately determined to keep him out of the contest. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Robin Lehner stopped 18 of 22 Flyers shots in a 5-1 loss on Tuesday.

It was Lehner's second preseason game with the Islanders. He stopped the eight shots he faced over 29:29 minutes in his first outing. Of course, we wouldn't read too much into exhibition results, but Lehner's showings are perhaps a little more noteworthy than others given that he's competing for the starting gig with Thomas Greiss.

Sean Monahan scored Calgary's lone goal in Wednesday's 3-1 exhibition loss to Boston from Beijing, China.

Jesse Puljujarvi has gotten more comfortable living in Edmonton.

Puljujarvi is from Sweden, so it was a big transition to make the shift to North America as a teenager. However, he's better able to communicate now and has 93 NHL games under his belt. "I think it’s better," he said. "My English is better and I know all my teammates. I know Edmonton. I have a good apartment there. I feel comfortable." He'll looking to take a step forward after scoring 12 goals and 20 points in 65 contests in 2017-18. There's a lot of untapped upside there, so he's worth keeping an eye on.
