Andrew Ebbett has been recalled by Pittsburgh.

He has registered on goal and six points in 18 NHL games this season.
Jan 26 - 3:55 PM

Tyler Johnson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Carolina.

He took part in Monday's practice, but coach Jon Cooper said he's still day-to-day. Johnson wasn't able to play in the All-Star Game because of a lower-body injury, but he's still eligible to play because he participated in All-Star weekend events.
Jan 26 - 3:52 PM

Updating an earlier item, Dion Phanuef is being listed as week-to-week with an upper-body injury.

The Maple Leafs made the announcement via their Twitter account and said that the Toronto captain was injured before the All-Star break.
Jan 26 - 3:49 PM

Pekka Rinne (knee) is slated to resume skating Monday.

He hasn't played since Jan. 13 due to a knee injury. Nashville has a 1-1-1 record during Rinne's absence.
Jan 26 - 3:39 PM

Marek Mazanec has been summoned from the minors.

He was expected to rejoin the Predators after the All-Star break because Pekka Rinne is still out with knee injury. Mazanec could get more opportunities to play if Carter Hutton can't handle the workload.
Jan 26 - 3:33 PM

According to an NHL source, Dion Phaneuf was absent from practice Monday due to a hand injury and he's expected to be out a while.

Phaneuf logged 15:22 of ice time against Ottawa last Wednesday. This is pure speculation, but there's a chance that the injury may have occurred during his fight with Milan Michalek.
Jan 26 - 3:27 PM

Kevin Bieksa will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks after he underwent hand surgery.

He sustained a broken hand just before the All-Star break. Bieksa has nine points, 74 hits, 75 blocks and 63 penalty minutes in 45 games this campaign.
Jan 26 - 3:15 PM

Updating an earlier item, Kyle Okposo is projected to miss six-to-eight weeks with an upper-body injury.

That's a tough blow for the Islanders, as Okposo is the second on the team with 44 points in 46 games. He's formed an excellent tandem with John Tavares this season. Ryan Strome could be a candidate to replace Okposo on the top line.
Jan 26 - 3:09 PM

As expected, Ryan White is back up with the Philadelphia Flyers.

He was projected to be called up after the All-Star break. White will get a chance to play with Zac Rinaldo suspended. White had surgery in the off-season to repair a torn pectoralis muscle injury, so when he suits up for the Flyers it will be his debut with the team.
Jan 26 - 2:45 PM

Kyle Okposo didn't take part in Monday's practice because of an upper-body injury.

The Islanders didn't provide any additional information, so it's unclear if he'll be ready to play on Tuesday against the New York Rangers. Consider him day-to-day for now and we'll update the situation as we learn more.
Jan 26 - 2:39 PM

David Wolf has joined the Calgary Flames from the minors.

He has 12 goals, 21 points and 68 penalty minutes in 35 games with Calgary's AHL affiliate in Adirondack this year. The 25-year-old has not played in an NHL game in his career yet.
Jan 26 - 2:35 PM

The Calgary Flames have brought up Tyler Wotherspoon.

He was up with the Flames prior to the All-Star break, but he was a healthy scratch so he hasn't played with Calgary yet this season. Wotherspoon has two goals and 15 points in 39 games with Adirondack this year.
Jan 26 - 2:18 PM

Sven Baertschi has been called up by Calgary.

He has averaged just under nine minutes of ice time per game in 14 NHL appearances this season. Baertschi has three assists and 11 shots. In 28 matches with AHL Adirondack, he has five goals and 17 points.
Jan 26 - 2:14 PM

Dallas has summoned Jyrki Jokipakka from AHL Texas.

He has chipped in five helpers in 19 games with Dallas this season, while averaging 15:34 of ice time per match.
Jan 26 - 1:52 PM

Jamie Oleksiak has been recalled by Dallas.

It was suspected that he would be brought back up after the All-Star break. The 22-year-old rearguard has eight points and 72 hits in 31 games this campaign.
