Corey Potter has made his season debut on Friday night against the New York Islanders in place of Captain Mark Giordano.

It's his first NHL game since April 18th, 2014 while with Boston versus Detroit where he skated 22 shifts for 16:57 of ice time. The 2003 fourth round selection has just 32 points and 53 PIMs in 123 career NHL games.

JT Brown will tag in for Brenden Morrow on Friday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Through 37 games this season, Brown has accumulated just five points, 21 PIMs, and 31 hits. Not much fantasy value there, unfortunately. He'll skate on the fourth line to the right of Jonathan Drouin and Brian Boyle.

Brenden Morrow and Luke Witkowski will be scratched against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

Through 52 games this season, the veteran Morrow has just six points to go along with 50 PIMs and 83 hits. Not quite like the venerable power forward in his hey-day.

Dan Carcillo and Tim Erixon will be scratched against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday night.

Tonight will make three straight in the stands for Carcillo, who has played just 10 of his 37 games this season in 2015. He has collected just 49 PIMs and 36 hits when he has managed to hit the ice. Meanwhile Erixon has played just twice in 2015.

Brandon Bollig and Tyler Wotherspoon will be scratched against the New York Islanders on Friday night.

Tonight will be Bollig's third consecutive scratching, having last played on Feb. 20th. On the season, Bolligg has just three points, 52 PIMs, and 110 hits through 48 games. Wotherspoon was called up as an extra body, but has 14 NHL games with four points to his credit from last season.

Mark Giordano has left warm-ups early before the shoot-around and did not take part in line rushes Friday night against the Islanders. In fact he was the first one off the ice, thus he is highly unlikely to play.

Typically when a player takes warm-ups there's a pretty good chance he'll play. Either the coach is still weighing his options, or the player is testing his health. Perhaps the latter is what Captain Giordano was doing, and it seems likely he has determined that he is not fit to play tonight.

Ian Cole is questionable Saturday due to an upper-body injury.

Cole missed Thursday's game due to the ailment. Chris Butler filled the void in that contest and he'll presumably remain in the lineup if Cole is forced to miss another game.
Feb 27 - 6:49 PM

Chris Terry will be scratched against the Boston Bruins on Friday night.

Terry has played in just nine of his 37 games this season since the turn of the calendar to 2015. He has 10 points, 10 PIMs, and 26 hits.

Niklas Svedberg has been confirmed as Boston's starting goaltender for Friday's game.

Tuukka Rask is unavailable due to an illness. Svedberg has a 2.43 GAA and .915 save percentage in 13 games in 2014-15.
Feb 27 - 6:44 PM

Michael Latta and Aaron Volpatti will be scratched agasint the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night.

Since returning from a lengthy injury on Feb. 3rd, Volpatti has played just one other game with nothing to show for his efforts. Latta meanwhile has 51 PIMs and 74 hits through 41 games this season.
Feb 27 - 6:43 PM

Tuukka Rask (illness) has been officially ruled out of Friday's game.

Niklas Svedberg will play between the pipes instead while call up Jeremy Smith will warm the bench. Rask should be regarded as day-to-day.
Feb 27 - 6:42 PM

The Boston Bruins are reportedly trying to acquire Antoine Vermette.

Although Vermette will probably be traded before the deadline, the Bruins are believed to be competing with the Chicago Blackhawks as well as likely others. Ultimately Boston wants to acquire a top-six forward and if they can't get Vermette then some of their other candidates reportedly include Dallas' Erik Cole, Buffalo's Chris Stewart, and the Blue Jackets' Cam Atkinson.

Mason Raymond and Matt Stajan will be scratched against the New York Islanders on Friday night.

Both forwards are still with their wives expecting a new member of the family to come through. However neither player has much fantasy value this season. Stajan has just 10 points and 28 PIMs, while Raymond is little better at 15 points and just four penalty minutes.

Brian Gibbons has been called up by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Columbus wanted another forward after losing Matt Calvert to a concussion. Gibbons has five assists in 21 games with Columbus in 2014-15. He shouldn't be a factor in standard leagues.
Feb 27 - 6:35 PM

Mark Giordano is taking warm-ups on Long Island on Friday night, indicating that he may play against the Islanders.

Well, this is a stunning turn of events if there ever was one. Players don't tend to take warm-ups if they're not intending to play, so take this as a positive sign. Giordano leads all defenders with 48 points and is a must-play in all formats.
