Scott Harrington is once again listed as a healthy scratch Wednesday versus Washington.

The 21-year-old defenseman has yet to score a point at the NHL level in nine games this season. He skated in three of the Pens’ last four games but with Kris Letang healthy again, Harrington will have a hard time getting back on the ice.

Tyler Kennedy has suffered a lower-body injury.

Kennedy missed Wednesday's practice and will be unavailable for Thursday's game. This is the fourth time that Kennedy has been sidelined this season. He has four goals and seven points in 18 contests.

Steve Bernier will be watching from the press box Wednesday against the Leafs.

Bernier skated in the Devils last three games before the All-Star break, but with Tuomo Ruutu and Jaromir Jagr recovered from the flu, Bernier will once again be a healthy scratch. He has 13 points (six goals and seven assists) in 32 games in the 2014-2015 season.

Peter Harrold will be a healthy scratch for the Devils Wednesday night against Toronto.

Harrold hasn’t cracked the lineup since January 16th in Anaheim and has just one goal and zero assists in 19 games this season. His minus 11 rating has really hurt his chances at getting back in the Devils lineup going forward unless there is an injury on the blue line.
Jan 28 - 5:14 PM

Stuart Percy will be a healthy scratch Wednesday versus New Jersey.

Percy had just skated in the Leafs last game on January 21st but will once again be back in the press box as a healthy scratch Wednesday. He has three assists and is a minus four in nine games with the Leafs this season.
Jan 28 - 5:12 PM

Leo Komarov will rejoin the Leafs lineup Wednesday evening against the Devils.

The 28-year-old forward sustained a shoulder injury back on January 12th and hasn’t been able to dress since then, but is set to return Wednesday night after missing the Leafs last five games. In the morning skate, he was playing the wing alongside Nazim Kadri and Phil Kessel, which mean good things could be in store for Komarov. He has five goals and 13 assists in 29 games in the 2014-2015 season, but he could see an uptick going forward if he remains on the Leafs top line.
Jan 28 - 5:11 PM

Peter Holland will be back in the Leafs lineup Wednesday night in New Jersey.

Holland has been out with an upper-body injury since December 31. He was skating on a line with Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli in the morning skate Wednesday, so you can assume he’ll line up in the same spot come game time. In 38 games this season, Holland has eight goals, eight assists. A minus two rating, and 16 penalty minutes.

Petter Granberg will make his season debut Wednesday night against the New Jersey Devils.

Granberg was called up from the AHL this Wednesday morning and will suit up for the Leafs in New Jersey. He will be taking Steohane Robidas’ spot on the blue line, who is out with an upper body injury. This will be Granberg’s second career game at the NHL level, who has seven points in 28 games with the Toronto Marlies in the AHL this year.
Jan 28 - 5:08 PM

Alex Petrovic has been called up by the Florida Panthers.

That gives the Panthers seven healthy defensemen. He has 19 points and 57 penalty minutes in 39 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jan 28 - 4:52 PM

Tyler Toffoli (mono) is probable for Wednesday's game.

Toffoli has missed six straight games due to the disease. If he's in the lineup, then he'll probably skate alongside Dwight King on Jeff Carter. That would in turn cause Trevor Lewis to lose his top-six forward spot.
Jan 28 - 4:20 PM

Chris Porter (leg) has had his cast removed.

Porter is walking normally now, so he'll be re-evaluated on Monday. It's still not clear how close he is to returning, but this is an encouraging step in the right direction.
Jan 28 - 3:51 PM

Tuomo Ruutu (flu) has been officially activated off of the injured reserve list.

Ruutu was already projected to return to the lineup on Wednesday, but this is further confirmation. He has five goals and eight points in 43 games in 2014-15.
Jan 28 - 3:48 PM

Derek Dorsett (upper body) didn't attend Wednesday's practice.

Dorsett left Tuesday's contest after absorbing a high hit from Ryan Kesler. The obvious fear is that he might have a concussion, but there's nothing from the Canucks yet to suggest that's the case.
Jan 28 - 3:46 PM

Taylor Hall's leg injury is a bone bruise.

Hall took a shot off his leg during Monday's practice and missed Tuesday's game as a result. He's day-to-day and questionable for Thursday's contest. If he can play, then Benoit Pouliot will likely slide off the first line.
Jan 28 - 3:42 PM

Jakub Kindl (elbow) is medically cleared to play.

Kindl has already been removed from the injured reserve list, per the team's website. However, he's not expected to rejoin the lineup in the immediate future. For now Xavier Ouellet will continue to play.
