Alexander Semin might get back into the Hurricanes' lineup on Saturday.

Semin has spent three straight contests in the press box and will be a healthy scratch again Friday. However, Hurricanes coach Bill Peters has already indicated that he will be open to changing the roster for the second half of their back-to-back set. Semin has just one goal and eight points in 26 games this season.

T.J. Galiardi has been called up by the Winnipeg Jets.

Galiardi was sent to the minors mere hours ago, but Matt Halischuk (undisclosed) has since been placed on the injured reserve list, so the Jets require Galiardi's services once more. Galiardi has a goal in 26 games in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 4:42 PM

Matt Halischuk has been placed on the injured reserve list with an undisclosed injury.

The move is presumably retroactive to Thursday, which means that whatever's bothering Halischuk will sideline him for at least three games. He has two goals and seven points in 38 contests in 2014-15. T.J. Galiardi, who was demoted earlier in the day, has been asked to turn around and rejoin the Jets.

The Vancouver Canucks have called up Adam Clendening.

Vancouver acquired Clendening from Chicago in exchange for 2014 fifth-round pick Gustav Forsling. Clendening, 22, has 13 points and 20 penalty minutes in 38 AHL contests in 2014-15. He's not expected to play Friday night.

Petr Mrazek will play between the pipes on Saturday.

Mrazek will get a chance to bounce back after allowing five goals on 15 shots on Thursday. With Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson, Mrazek has emerged as the Red Wings' de facto number one goaltender.

Nikita Nikitin is expected to miss a significant amount of time with a shoulder injury.

Just how much time isn't clear, but there's only about two and a half months left in the season to begin with. Nikitin has three goals and eight points in 34 games in 2014-15. Keith Aulie, who has been a healthy scratch for the better part of the season, will re-enter the lineup and play alongside Mark Fayne.
Jan 30 - 2:54 PM

Alex Chiasson is dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Chiasson will not be available on Saturday and he's considered day-to-day beyond that. He has eight goals and 18 points in 44 games this season. David Legwand will play instead after spending two games in the press box.
Jan 30 - 2:29 PM

Eric Brewer (foot) has been removed from the injured reserve list.

Colby Robak was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot. Brewer hasn't played since Dec. 1. He has four assists in 19 games this season.
Jan 30 - 2:16 PM

Colby Robak will report to AHL Norfolk.

Robak was placed on waivers Thursday and went unclaimed. He's only played in one game after Dec. 19. His demotion freed up a spot for Eric Brewer to come off the injured reserve list.

Alexei Marchenko has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

This comes after Detroit demoted defenseman Xavier Ouellet and waived blueliner Brian Lashoff. Marchenko has two goals and 17 points in 42 contests in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 1:17 PM

Xavier Ouellet has been sent to the minors.

Ouellet has two goals and three points in 21 games this season. The Red Wings also recalled fellow defenseman Alexey Marchenko to take his place.
Jan 30 - 1:16 PM

T.J. Galiardi has successfully cleared waivers.

Galiardi was sent to the minors as a result. He has a goal in 26 games this season.
Jan 30 - 12:58 PM

Brian Lashoff has been placed on waivers by the Detroit Red Wings.

Lashoff has two assists in 11 games this season. The 24-year-old doesn't have much offensive upside.
Jan 30 - 12:56 PM

Christian Ehrhoff has returned to Pittsburgh to be tested for a possible concussion.

Ehrhoff will obviously miss Friday's game in New Jersey. Look for Scott Harrington to dress as a result. Ehrhoff has three goals and 13 points in 43 games in 2014-15.
Jan 30 - 12:54 PM

Malcolm Subban has been called up by the Boston Bruins.

Subban was summoned to serve as Tuukka Rask's understudy while Niklas Svedberg participates in a conditioning stint. It's possible that Subban will end up making his NHL debut during this stint as Boston will play in three games over four days from Feb. 7-10. He has a 2.47 GAA and .921 save percentage in 22 AHL contests.
