Sami Vatanen (shoulder) will be unable to make his season debut on Friday.

It will be Vatanen's seventh consecutive game on the sidelines to start the campaign. As previously reported, he might be able to return during the Ducks' upcoming four-game road trip.
Oct 20 - 3:56 PM

Hampus Lindholm (shoulder) won't be able to return on Friday.

Lindholm is getting close to returning though. Consider him day-to-day beyond Friday's contest.
Oct 20 - 3:54 PM

John Gibson is expected to get the start Friday night.

Gibson has dropped his last two starts, but he only allowed three goals over that span. He has a 2-2-1 record, 2.66 GAA, and .924 save percentage in six starts.
Oct 20 - 3:52 PM

Jonathan Marchessault (lower body) took part in Friday's practice.

Marchessault was wearing a non-contact jersey though, so his return probably isn't imminent. He has a goal in four games this season. He's been sidelined for the Golden Knights' last two contests.
Oct 20 - 3:50 PM

Erik Gudbranson will serve a one-game suspension for boarding Boston's Frank Vatrano.

That will keep Gudbranson out of Friday's game, but he'll be eligible to return on Sunday. It probably helped Gudbranson's case that he hadn't previously been fined or suspended and thus was not a repeat offender.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes Friday night.

That was the plan anyways, but it was made a more obvious decision when Cory Schneider suffered a lower-body injury on Thursday. With Schneider unavailable, Scott Wedgewood will serve as Kinkaid's backup.

Scott Wedgewood has been summoned by the New Jersey Devils.

Cory Schneider is dealing with a lower-body injury, which is why Wedgewood has been called up. Look for Wedgewood to serve as Keith Kinkaid's understudy on Friday.

Cory Schneider (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Schneider couldn't complete Thursday's game due to the injury. Keep in mind that the Devils have a week off after Friday's contest, so he can be activated after missing just one game. In the meantime, Scott Wedgewood is with the Devils.

Zack Smith (upper body) will be sidelines for a minimum of one week.

Smith sustained the injury during Thursday's game against New Jersey. He's off to a good start with five assists in seven games this season, making the timing of his injury particularly unfortunate.
Oct 20 - 2:50 PM

Leon Draisaitl (concussion) took part in Friday's practice.

That's a good sign, but Draisaitl won't be able to return on Saturday. It will be his fourth straight contest on the sidelines.
Oct 20 - 2:48 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Lundqvist's third straight start. He has a 3.15 GAA and .905 save percentage in seven games this season.
Oct 20 - 2:47 PM

Brian Elliott appears to be the Flyers' probable starter for Saturday's game against Edmonton.

Elliott struggled against the Oilers in 2016-17 while serving as a member of the rival Calgary Flames. In those contests Elliott posted a 0-3-1 record, 3.58 GAA, and .870 save percentage. We'll see if he can do better against them with the Flyers in front of him.
Oct 20 - 2:45 PM

Adam McQuaid suffered a broken right fibula during Thursday's game.

McQuaid has surgery scheduled for Monday to address the injury. He will be sidelined for about eight weeks as a result, which puts his projected return in the middle of December. He has an assist in six games this season.

Taylor Fedun has been summoned by the Buffalo Sabres.

Fedun will probably be a healthy scratch Friday night though. Buffalo is playing in back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, so it seems Fedun is primarily with the Sabres as an insurance policy.
Oct 20 - 2:39 PM

Chad Johnson will get the nod Friday night.

Johnson is appearing in his third straight game. He surrendered five goals on 31 shots against Vegas on Tuesday, so this is an opportunity for him to bounce back.
