The Avalanhe have re-asigned Rocco Grimaldi to San Antonio of the AHL.

In his first NHL game of the season, Grimaldi had 8:09 of ice time Saturday night against Dallas and took three shots on goal. He will likely return to Denver when there is a need.

Erik Johnson will be lost to the Avlanache for 6-8 weeks with a broken fibula.

He broke his leg in the second period of Saturday night's 3-0 loss to Dallas. This is a big blow to the Avalanche as the team had been reeling on defense even before Johnson's injury. We suggest you look for a permanent replacemet for Johnson without delay.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville told the media that he will update Jonathan Toews status at 4:00 pm on Sunday.

Toews is dealing with a back injury and was placed on injured reserve on Friday. We should find out more about his condition and timeline for a return Sunday afternoon.

The Blackhawks have assigned Nick Schmaltz to Rockford of the AHL.

In 26 games this season, Schmaltz has scored one goal and registered four points. Needless to say, his comings and goings this season will have little fantasy impact.

The Blackhawks have called up goalie Lars Johansson from Rockford of the AHL.

He will back up Scott Darling while Corey Crawford recovers from his emergecny appendectomy. We don't expect Johansson to play much based on his 6-7-1 record and 2.63 goals against average and .911 save percentage with the IceDogs. That said, he was terriific in 2014-15 with Frolunda of the Swedish League.

Matt Martin and Erik Gudbranson dropped their gloves Saturday night to settle a score from November 5th.

It was inevitable that Martin and Gudbranson would tussle after the two had harsh words following an incident in a November 5th game in which Martin went after Canucks' rookie defenseman Troy Stecher. For his part, Martin seems to think the subjec is closed and had the following to say about Gudbranson after Saturday night's fight. "I have a lot of respect for him ... He wears his heart on his sleeve. He's a guy I'd have in my corner any day."

Andrei Vasilevskiy may get the start Sunday afternoon against the Hurricanes.

The Lightning are playing on back-to-back days and Ben Bishop was in goal Saturday night against the Capitals, so it is reasonable to presume Vasilevskiy will get the start Sunday. However, the youngster is coming off two bad outings and Bishop was outstanding in a 2-1 shootout win over Washington, so it is far from cerrtain Vasilevskiy will get this start. We will update you before game time.

Craig Anderson will rejoin his Senators' teammates prior to Monday's game in Pittsburgh.

He took a leave of absence to be with his ailing wife. Anderson will likely get the start in Monday's contest so get ready to activate him.
Dec 4 - 11:16 AM

Andrew Hammond was re-assigned to Binghamton of the AHL Sunday morning.

It looks as if Craig Anderson will be returning from his leave of absence. Mike Condon is now Anderson's backup so Hammond is no longer needed at the NHL level.

Anreas Englund was a hit in his first NHL game Saturday night against Florida.

A hit because he dished out a team-high seven hits in only 9;49 of ice time. That's a pretty impressive total for the youngster. If your pool counts hits as a stat, you may want to keep an eye on Englund.

Clarke MacArthur is targeting early January for his return to action from his concussion.

MacArthur has been skating in an attempt to come back from his fourth concussion in the past 18 months. The winger has stated that he is feeling well and fully anticipates being back in the Senators lineup soon after New Years. There are many in the hockey community who believe MacArthur should retire.

Evgeny Kuznetsov was pointless for the fourth straight game.

Kuznetsov has not had a good season at all after a 20 goal, 77 point performance last year. He has only three goals and nine points in 23 contests and certainly has been a sore spot for his fantasy owners this season. You have to keep him but it would be nice if he could start contributing.

Alexander Radulov is playing the point on the Canadiens' first power-play unit.

He was working on the point alongside Shea Weber exclusively during Saturday's practice. This is a blow to the fantasy value of Andrei Markov, who will now skate on the Habs' second power-play unit.
Dec 4 - 10:45 AM

Carey Price will start in goal Sunday afternoon against Los Angeles.

Price has been mortal the past few weeks losing three of his last five games. That said, he is still the best goalie in the NHL and a must start against the Kings Sunday.
Dec 4 - 10:41 AM

Nick Bjugstad was shifted back to center prior to the Panthers' 2-0 loss to Ottawa Saturday night.

Bjugstad had a five-game trial on the wing alongside Denis Malgin that didn't work out too well. Panthers' interim coach Tom Rowe shifted Bjugstad back to the pivot position. It doesn't really make much of a difference to Bjugstad's fantasy value as in either case he is still playing on the Cats' third line.
