Michael Leighton may start Thursday's match against the Kings.

Cam Ward played Wednesday night against Anaheim. Through two games Leighton has seen 56 combined shots and stopped 50 of them while splitting the two decisions. All things considered that's not too shabby. Though you may still wish to find a more favorable match-up.

Tyler Gaudet and Kevin Connauton will be scratched from Thursday's match with the Flames.

Through three games thus far the talented forward Gaudet is still searching for his first point. He has just three points in 19 games so far in his career, so we'd wait on the proverbial click.

Tyler Wotherspoon and Freddie Hamilton will be scratched against the Coyotes on Thursday.

Unfortunately neither player have proven to be much of a fantasy asset. Wotherspoon has no goals and five points in 26 career NHL games. While Hamilton has just four points in 49 career NHL games.

Adam Pardy will make his Predators debut against the Stars on Thursday.

The rugged defender has 52 points with 263 PIMs, 361 hits, and 418 blocks across 338 career games.
Dec 8 - 8:11 PM

Jason Dickinson will make his season debut for the Stars on Thursday against the Predators.

Nikita Nesterov and Slater Koekkoek will be scratched against the Canucks on Thursday night.

Jonathan Marchessault won't play Thursday against Pittsburgh due to a lower body injury.

Tough break for the Panthers, as there was word he might play after all. As it stands, Marchessault remains at 25 games played with five goals and 10 points.

His time has nearly arrived, Timo Meier is "real close" to making his NHL debut.

The 20-year-old is having a great season for AHL Barracudas, having posted eight goals and 14 points in 14 games thus far. The Sharks could use a bit of youth on the squad, Meier's emergence would be a welcome sight. He should be with the big club at some point this season.
Dec 8 - 7:26 PM

Kyle Connor and Mark Stuart will both be scratched against the Rangers on Thursday.

The pair have become Winnipeg's usual scratches, along with Alexander Burmistrov. Until either can start playing again regularly we'd put a hard cap on their fantasy potential.
Dec 8 - 7:20 PM

Alexander Burmistrov won't play against the Rangers on Thursday.

The veteran forward has just two points in 23 games this season, so it's not like his fantasy value is taking a dip by not playing.
Dec 8 - 7:16 PM

Adam Clendening will not play against the Jets on Thursday.

Clendening has seen just one game over the last month, with seven games played overall this season. Unfortunately, he does not have a role with the team.
Dec 8 - 7:11 PM

Eric Fehr will be a healthy scratch Thursday against Florida.

Through 26 games the veteran winger has posted five points. He hasn't reached the 30-point plateau since 2014-15, unfortunately.
