The Lightning sent down forward Michael Blunden to Syracuse Friday.
Cedric Pacquette was recalled to take Blunden's place. This swtcheroo will have little to no fantasy impact.
Jonathan Drouin has been exactly as advertised.
He has been an offensive force in three NHL games he has played to date. Drouin has scored a goal and registered two assists and has been dangerous on a line with Steven Stamkos and Valteri Filppula. What has been even more impressive is that Drouin has been responsible defensively. Stamkos had this to say about Drouin: "I can't say enough about the way he's played and the poise he has at this stage of his career. It's fun to be on the ice with him. You can tell he has that confidence and that poise. To have it that early is special." Needless to say, Drouin should be snatched up if he is still on any free agent wire. He will certainly be a frontrunner for Calder trophy honors by season's end.
Look for Evgeni Nabokov to get the start Saturday night against Minnesota.
Ben Bishop was in net for the Bolts' 4-2 win over the Jets Friday night, so Nabokov will get the start Saturday in the second game of a back-to-back situation. Adjust your goaltending rotation accordingly.
Brett Connolly did not come out for the second period of Friday's 4-2 win over the Jets.
He sustained a lower-body injury in the first period. Too bad, as Connolly was playing the best hockey of his career for the Lightning as of late. He is listed as doubtful for Saturday's contest against the Wild. If you have Connolly on your fantasy squad, place him on reserve immediately.
Brian Elliott will get the start in goal for St. Louis on Saturday.
Elliott is only 1-2-1 this season but his peripheral stats are quite good as he has a 1.73 GAA with a .924 save percentage. The Blues are in tough against the Chicago Blackhawks so this may not be a great spot to start the Blues netminder.
J.T. Brown left Friday's 4-2 win over Winnipeg after the first period with an upper-body injury.
He has been listed as doubtful for Saturday's contest against Minnesota.
Jonathan Bernier will get the start in goal on Saturday as the Maple Leafs take on the Boston Bruins.
Bernier got off to a tough start in his first two games of the season but has been great in his last two contests giving up only two goals on 67 shots. He is 1-2-1 this season with a 3.02 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Ray Emery will get the start in goal Saturday according to the Philadelphia Flyers twitter site.
Emery is 2-0-1 this season but his peripheral numbers are a bit weak as he has a 2.84 GAA and a .897 save percentage. Nevertheless, those numbers are better than Steve Mason so Emery could challenge the Flyers number one goalie in the upcoming games.
