The Buffalo Sabres will reinsert Brayden McNabb into their lineup on Tuesday.
McNabb has been healthy, but the Sabres haven't used him since Nov. 27. However, he stayed sharp during that time by heading to the AHL on a conditioning stint.
Emerson Etem has been sent down to the AHL.
Etem's latest NHL stint only ended up lasting a few days. He has six goals and 10 points in 26 games with Anaheim this season.
Loui Eriksson (concussion) has been placed on the injured reserve list.
No surprise there. While there's no timetable for Eriksson's return, it's a safe bet that he will miss at least a week after sustaining his second concussion of the 2013-14 campaign. In other words, he'll be eligible to be activated before he's healthy enough to play.
In addition to Alex Tanguay's knee injury, he is now dealing with a related hip problem.
Tanguay might need surgery as a result of this setback. He has been sidelined since Nov. 2 and remains out indefinitely. He has three goals and nine points in 13 contests this season.
Richard Bachman (groin) has been sent down to the minors.
This presumably means that Bachman is healthy enough to play. He has been sidelined since Nov. 2.
Matt Greene (upper body) is healthy enough to return, but won't Tuesday.
Kings coach Darryl Sutter didn't go into detail as to his reasoning, but it's probably because the Kings are riding a three-game winning streak. Greene has two goals and three points in 15 games this season.
The Washington Capitals have sent Patrick Wey to the minors.
Wey made his NHL debut on Saturday. He has a goal and three points in seven AHL contests in 2013-14.
Joffrey Lupul (groin) should be ready to return on Wednesday.
Lupul has missed seven straight games due to the injury. He has eight goals and seven assists in 22 contests this season.
