Tim Heed recorded his first NHL point in Tuesday's 5-2 win against Montreal Tuesday night.

Heed assisted on Logan Couture's power-play goal in the second period. Heed, 26, was playing in his fourth career contest. He had 14 goals and 56 points in 55 AHL games last season.

Carl Hagelin netted a goal in the Penguins' 5-4 overtime win against the Rangers Tuesday night.

Hagelin also fired a team-high six shots on goal. It was Hagelin's first goal and second point in seven games this season. He had six goals and 22 points in 61 contests in 2017-18.

Robert Hagg picked up his first NHL point on Tuesday.

It wasn't exactly the stuff of legends. Hagg blocked a shot and that led to him picking up a secondary assist on Shayne Gostisbehere's goal. "I mean, yeah, I’ll take it," Hagg said. "It’s not going to say in the newspaper how I made it, so I’ll take it." Hagg was playing in his seventh career game.

Wayne Simmonds sustained a lower-body injury during Tuesday's game.

Simmonds left midway through the third period. The Flyers termed his absence as precautionary, but he'll be reevaluated on Wednesday. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has gotten off to a hot start with five goals, seven points, and seven penalty minutes in six contests.

Michael Grabner found the back of the net in the Rangers' 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

It was Grabner's first goal and second point in seven contests this season. He managed to score 27 goals last season, but he's not a safe bet to finish close to that mark again in 2017-18.

The New York Rangers are enduring one of the worst starts in their franchise's history.

With a 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh Tuesday night, the Rangers are now 1-5-1 this season. That makes them just the second team in franchise history to collect less than four points through seven contests. The last time the Rangers had such a slump was in 1959-60 and they were en route to a 17-38-15 campaign. That's not to say that history will repeat itself, but the Rangers need to stop the bleeding. They'll get another chance to do so against the Islanders on Thursday.

Nico Hischier recorded two assists in the Devils' 5-4 shootout win against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Hischier is up to four assists in six contests with three of those points coming in his first two games. He's got a lot of offensive upside, as you would expect from a first overall pick. He's worth gambling on in standard leagues if he's still available.

The New Jersey Devils are starting to lean heavily on 22-year-old defenseman Steven Santini.

Santini logged 25:40 minutes of ice time in New Jersey's 5-4 shootout win on Tuesday. That was the third straight contest that he's gotten at least 20 minutes and it brought his season average up to 20:58 minutes. Not bad for a blueliner who entered the season with 39 NHL contests on his resume. "I’d say the last two games, the Ranger game (a 3-2 Devils win on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden) and this game, Steven has really taken a nice step," Devils coach John Hynes said. Santini's not much of an offensive contributor, though he does have two assists in six contests this season.

Justin Auger might make his NHL debut on Wednesday.

As previously reported, Auger was summoned on Tuesday. Based on the practice lines, it looks like Auger will serve on a line with Michael Cammalleri and Adrian Kempe. The 23-year-old forward isn't expected to have any fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 18 - 5:07 AM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins played in his 400th career game on Tuesday.

Nugent-Hopkins registered an assist in the contest. The 2011 first overall pick hasn't emerged as the offensive force people were hoping for, but he has established himself as a solid contributor in Edmonton. He has two goals and three points in five games this season.
Oct 18 - 5:04 AM

Kailer Yamamoto recorded an assist in a 5-3 loss to Carolina Tuesday night.

Yamamoto logged 22:20 minutes of ice time, which is night and day from his debut when he was on the ice for just 6:33 minutes. Part of the reason he's seen an increase in responsibilities is because Leon Draisaitl (concussion) is sidelined, but even accounting for that it's encouraging to see Yamamoto get that much ice time. Yamamoto has two assists in four games.
Oct 18 - 5:02 AM

Milan Lucic found the back of the net in Edmonton's 5-3 loss to Carolina on Tuesday.

Unfortunately Lucic was also minus-two in the contest, dropping him to plus-one this season. He has a goal and three points in five games.
Oct 18 - 5:00 AM

Leon Draisaitl (concussion) was on the ice again on Tuesday.

Draisaitl also skated on Monday, though he hasn't resumed practicing with the Oilers yet. On Tuesday, Draisaitl was wearing a heart monitor, though we don't know what that told them. As is often the case with concussions, there's no clear timetable for his return.
Oct 18 - 4:58 AM

Elias Lindholm found the back of the net in Carolina's 5-3 win over Edmonton Tuesday night.

It was Lindholm's first goal of the 2017-18 campaign. He also has two assists in four contests. He scored 11 goals and a career-high 45 points in 72 contests last season.
