Jacob Trouba will have a hearing for his high hit on Ottawa's Mark Stone.

Trouba received a two-minute minor for an illegal hit to the head, but that might be just the beginning of his time served for the incident. Stone didn't return to the contest as a result of the hit, which might lead to Trouba being punished more harshly than he otherwise would have.

Ryan Johansen's first game back in Columbus didn't led to any special mention from the Blue Jackets.

"I was a little disappointed they didn't put anything on the (scoreboard) to say thank you or anything like that," Johansen said. "I think we all know who made that call, but whatever." Johansen played in 309 games with Columbus over four-plus seasons. At one time it looked like he was going to play a major role with the Blue Jackets for many years to come, but that changed about a year ago when they dealt him to Nashville in exchange for Seth Jones.

Zach Sanford appears at this time to have won the battle to replace Andre Burkovsky on the third line.

Burkovsky is out with a hand injury and won't return for another month or more. Sanford was battling Jakub Vrana for his spot and when the Capitals sent Vrana down to the minors after Sunday's game, it signalled for at least a little while that Sanford was the man. Sanford had two goals in two games before being held off the scoresheet Sunday and has three points in 23 games this season. Nice, but not nearly good enough to warrant any use in fantasy pools.

Jayson Megna replaced Jannik Hansen on the first power play.

Hansen was moved down to the second unit in a move that had many scratching their heads. The 27-year-old has only four goals and seven points in 41 games this season.

Joe Thornton saw his five game points streak come to an end Sunday.

Thornton is closing in on 1,000 career assists and is still just two shy after his former club, the Boston Bruins, shut him down. Thornton has only five goals and 39 points in 60 games as his age looks to be catching up to him. He is a fringe starter in most pools at best.

Brent Burns picked up an assist on the Sharks lone goal Sunday and now is only three points in arrears of Connor McDavid for the NHL scoring lead.

Burns also had a whopping seven shots on goal and leads the NHL with 242 shots. His 64 points including 27 goals are truly amazing for a defenseman with over a week still to go in February. He is a must-start.
Feb 20 - 9:05 AM

Mikko Koivu has reached the 600-point milestone.

Koivu reached that career mark in his 820th game. Among Finnish-born players, he's the eighth to reach the 600-point mark after Esa Tikkanen, Teppo Numminen, Olli Jokinen, Saku Koivu, Tomas Sandstrom, Jari Kurri, and Teemu Selanne.
Feb 20 - 9:05 AM

Anthony Mantha registered an assist in the Red Wings' 5-2 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Mantha has recorded at least a point in three of his last four contests. He has 13 goals and 31 points in 44 games in 2016-17.
