Nikolay Goldobin will skate with Brandon Sutter and Jack Skille on Thursday against the Blues.

"He's got good skill and we need him to push the pace," coach Willie Desjardins said of Goldobin. All things considered, this may become a productive line down the stretch. Sutter has managed 17 goals and 31 points in 71 games this season, while Skille has picked up eight points in 53 games. The youngster Goldobin already has a goal in three games with the Canucks, this after posting 36 goals and 85 points in 106 games with AHL San Jose since last season.

Mar 23 - 1:33 PM

Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) didn't join the team for practice on Thursday ahead of the evening's match with Ottawa.

Which likely indicates that the all-world center won't play tonight, though nothing is official just yet. We'll keep you posted.

Aaron Ekblad has been sidelined with a stiff neck, and will not play in Thursday's against Arizona.

Mar 23 - 1:25 PM

Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) took in a practice with the Sabres on Thursday.

Kulikov has been out since March 4th with the injury. This is a positive sign that he may be nearing a return to action. In 39 games this season he has two points with 24 PIMs, 52 hits and 60 blocks.
Mar 23 - 1:20 PM

Kyle Okposo (ribs) took to practice with Buffalo on Thursday.

This is a positive sign that he's recovering well from the injury. Coach Dan Bylsma noted that he may be able to return to action some time next week.

Magnus Hellberg was returned to AHL Hartford on Thursday.

The 25-year-old netminder didn't see any time with the Rangers during his latest stint. In 31 games this season with the Wolf Pack, Hellberg has posted an 11-11-2 record with a .902 save percentage and a 2.91 GAA.
Mar 23 - 1:14 PM

Unfortunately, Jean-Francois Berube's fantasy value to close the season will likely take a hit now that Jaroslav Halak has been recalled from AHL Bridgeport.

The young netminder has gone 7-3-2 with a 3.42 GAA and an .889 save percentage in 14 games this season. With the Islanders charging towards a playoff slot, it's likely that Berube will get squeezed out of playing time despite three sets of back-to-back games to close the season.
Mar 23 - 1:11 PM

Jaroslav Halak was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Thursday.

The Islanders' original starter this season has been sensational for the SoundTigers, going 17-7-1 with a .925 save percentage and a 2.15 GAA. With three sets of back-to-backs to finish the season, including Friday and Saturday of this week, it would appear the Isles are using every tool in their arsenal to secure a playoff slot. Prior to his demotion, Halak was 6-8-5 with a .906 SV% and a 3.23 GAA with New York.
Mar 23 - 1:09 PM

Josh Archibald was summoned up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday.
