Duncan Keith (knee) isn't expected to take part in any of Chicago's first four preseason contests.

That would still keep the door open to Keith playing on Oct. 4 against Detroit or Oct. 8 versus St. Louis. Chicago will open the regular season on Oct. 12 against the Blues. In the meantime, Keith has been practicing with the Blackhawks.

Brayden Chizen has been reassigned to the WHL's Keegan Iverson.

Chizen had been attending the Minnesota Wild's training camp. He was selected by the Wild with the 204th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Clarke MacArthur's (concussion) condition is "as good as we can hope right now," per Senators coach Guy Boucher.

MacArthur is experiencing what Boucher termed as "normal symptoms." MacArthur was concussed on Sunday during an intrasquad game. It's not clear how long he'll be out for, but that's par for the course when it comes to this type of injury. Given that he missed almost the entire 2015-16 campaign due to a concussion, the fact that it happened again is obviously very discouraging.

Vasili Glotov has been taken off of Buffalo's training camp roster.

Glotov was selected with the 190th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. He's making the transition to North America from Russia and will play for the QMJHL's Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in 2015-16.

The Buffalo Sabres have removed Vojtech Budik from their camp roster.

Budik recorded three goals and 16 points in 70 contests with the WHL's Prince Albert Raiders last season. With his time in Buffalo's camp over, he'll shift his focus back to the WHL.

Austin Osmanski has been cut from the Buffalo Sabres' training camp roster.

Radek Faksa (concussion) skated with the Stars on Monday, but he was wearing a no-contact jersey.

A previous report suggested that Faksa would practice on Tuesday, so perhaps he'll take some contact at that time. He sustained the injury while representing the Czech Republic in the World Cup.

Marian Gaborik will miss eight weeks due to his foot injury.

In other words, Gaborik's not going to just miss the start of the regular season, but a significant portion of it. The Kings were hoping that he'd bounce back from his 22-point 2015-16 campaign and for a time it looked like the World Cup might serve as a good starting point on that journey. Unfortunately this injury has derailed that and while he might still be effective once he's healthy, there's a real chance that he might not be worth owning in standard leagues this season.

Mike Smith will start in Monday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Smith had a 2.63 GAA and .916 save percentage in 32 games in 2015-16. Rather than let Smith play the full 60 minutes, the plan is for Louis Domingue to enter into the contest around the halfway mark.
Sep 26 - 5:19 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury will play between the pipes against Detroit on Tuesday.

Fleury is warming up for what will be a significantly different season for him. Rather than go into the campaign as the Penguins' clear number one goaltender as he has in the past, he'll have to compete for that spot with Matt Murray.
Sep 26 - 5:15 PM

Evan Mosey has been cut from the Chicago Blackhawks' training camp roster.

Mosey had 14 goals and 41 points in 52 contests with the EIHL's Nottingham Panthers in 2015-16. Although he attended the Blackhawks' camp, he doesn't have a contract with the franchise at this time.
Sep 26 - 5:12 PM

Nick Bonino (foot) didn't participate in Monday's practice.

Bonino was struck in the foot by the puck on Sunday. The good news is that this doesn't sound like a significant problem. "He came in and was sore, so we held him off," coach Mike Sullivan explained. With that in mind, it sounds like this is just a day-to-day issue.
Sep 26 - 5:07 PM

Nikita Nesterov has signed a one-year, $725,000 deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Nesterov had three goals and nine points in 57 games with the Lightning in 2015-16. He was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level deal.
