The decision to pull Cal Clutterbuck from Tuesday's game was precautionary.

Clutterbuck attempted to return from a lower-body injury on Tuesday, but didn't complete the game due to the ailment. "I’m tired of saying it and it’s a tough thing for him, but it’s precautionary," Islanders coach Doug Weight said. "He played four minutes in the first, spread out nice, four minutes in the second, spread out nice again and then we take a couple penalties. He’s banging out those hard, 30-second shifts and I just pulled him. Something’s going on and we’ll see." Clutterbuck might participate in Thursday's practice.

Casey Cizikas' upper-body injury is reportedly a broken hand.

As previously mentioned, Cizikas is also reported to be sidelined for a month. He sustained the injury during Tuesday's contest. He has seven goals and 23 points in 53 games this season.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins found the back of the net in Edmonton's 4-3 victory on Wednesday.

That was Nugent-Hopkins' 30th game of the season. He's on pace to get 45 points this season after recording 34 points in 55 contests in 2015-16. That's not bad, but it's less than you would expect from a former first overall pick.

Leon Draisaitl registered an assist in a 4-3 win against Florida on Wednesday.

Draisaitl has recorded at least a point in four of his last five contests. He's up to 22 goals and 53 points in 61 games this season.
Feb 23 - 7:07 AM

Oscar Klefbom has three goals and six points in his last five games.

Klefbom hasn't been much of an offensive contributor through most of his NHL career, though that career is still young. The 23-year-old has 11 goals and 26 points in 61 contests in 2016-17. Oilers coach Todd McLellan recently stated that Klefbom has 40-point potential and while that likely won't be realized this season, it might happen in 2017-18.
Feb 23 - 6:56 AM

Jordan Eberle recorded an assist in Edmonton's 4-3 win against Florida on Wednesday.

Eberle has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 12 goals and 36 points in 61 contests in 2016-17. That's a pretty disappointing showing for him over all, but perhaps he'll salvage it to some extent with a strong finish.
Feb 23 - 6:53 AM

Louis Domingue might play between the pipes on Friday.

Domingue is returning from a lower-body injury on Thursday, but he'll serve as the backup in that game. Coyotes coach Dave Tippett hasn't confirmed that Domingue will start Friday night, but he's left the door open to it and intends to evaluate the situation after Thursday's contest. Domingue last played on Feb. 14.

Brad Richardson (leg) is weeks away from returning, but he might be back before the season's over.

"It’s a serious, serious injury," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It’s a long rehab back, but it’s good to see he’s coming the right way and I hope he gets the chance to play some games this year. I think that’d be really good for him to come back and going into the next year know that he got back and playing." Richardson hasn't played since Nov. 17. He's been skating regularly, but he can't participate in team practices yet.

Josh Manson netted a goal in Anaheim's 5-3 win over Boston Wednesday night.

It was his third goal and 13th point in 62 games this season. He's recorded a point in three straight contests, to come just two points shy of his 2015-16 total.
Feb 23 - 6:42 AM

Nick Ritchie registered a pair of assists on Wednesday.

With that, Ritchie is on a three-game point streak. That matches his personal best in his young NHL career. He has 11 goals and 22 points in 60 contests in 2016-17.
Feb 23 - 6:40 AM

Ryan Getzlaf is on a three-game point streak.

Getzlaf registered an assist in a 5-3 win over Boston Wednesday night. He has 11 goals and 46 points in 55 contests in 2016-17.
Feb 23 - 6:38 AM

The Anaheim Ducks have called up Jhonas Enroth.

Anaheim needed another goaltender on Wednesday because John Gibson is day-to-day with a lower body injury. With Gibson unavailable, Enroth served as Jonathan Bernier's backup Wednesday night.
Feb 23 - 6:36 AM

Jonathan Bernier gave up three goals on 29 shots Wednesday night, but that was good enough to secure a 5-3 win over the Bruins.

It was important for Bernier to get back in the net. He was coming off an embarrassing loss to the Coyotes Monday night in which he gave up three goals on six shots in the first period. In two games prior to that debacle, however, he had back-to-back games with save percentages greater than .935.
Feb 23 - 1:53 AM

Tuukka Rask faced only 24 shots and let four get past him as the Bruins lost 5-3 to the Ducks.

The fifth goal was awarded to Andrew Cogliano when he was hooked while charging toward an empty net. This is the seventh time in his last nine outings that Rask has fallen below the .900 mark in terms of save percentages. In spite of his poor save percentage, he has a record of 6-2-0 in that span with one additional loss in which he was not the decision-maker. He seemed to find his composure with a shutout win over Montreal just before the bye-week and a win over San Jose with only one goal on 30 shots immediately afterward, but he cost fantasy players who tried to for a bandwagon based on those two results.
Feb 23 - 1:47 AM

Frank Vatrano briefly tied the game with a goal in the third, but the Bruins gave up two late in the period and lost 5-3 to the Ducks Wednesday night.

Vatrano has earned five of his season-total 14 points in the last four games. His best outing in this span came before the bye-week with a goal and two assists against Vancouver. He failed to score a point in the Bruins first game back from the enforced vacation, but found his rhythm Wednesday night.
