Parenteau (knee) will likely be out for a few weeks and is scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Early indications are that the injury is at least somewhat serious, but nothing is certain until Parenteau undergoes further testing. While a torn ACL represents the worst-case scenario and may be in play, fantasy owners need not jump to any conclusions.
Parenteau hurt his right knee Monday, and the injury does not look good, according to Mike Chambers of the Denver Post.
Nothing's official, but the early report doesn't sound good. Hopefully, the Avalanche will provide an update after Monday's game. With four goals and an assist in his previous six contests, Parenteau had been thriving since the Olympic break.
03/10/14 - 7:05PM ETColton Orr
: (Undisclosed) Out Monday
Orr (undisclosed), who was expected to return, will not play in Monday's game against the Ducks, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.
Orr is dealing with an undisclosed injury and was expected to return for Monday's game. He took the ice for pregame warmups but was ultimately scratched.
Parenteau suffered a lower-body injury during the first period of Monday's game, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Parenteau logged just 49 seconds of ice time in the first frame and is likely done for the night. He hasn't officially been ruled out for the game, but an update should be available at some point in the second or third period.
Clarkson (leg) is likely back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Anaheim Ducks, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Clarkson missed just one game with the injury, which he suffered during Friday's practice. Fantasy owners can use him as they normally would.
03/10/14 - 6:27PM ETTim Thomas
: Monday's Game Postponed
Monday's game between the Stars and Blue Jackets has been postponed, after Rich Peverley collapsed on the Stars' bench during the first period, 630 CHED's Dan Tencer reports.
Peverley regained consciousness before leaving the arena, but the other players were clearly shaken up, so the NHL decided to postpone the game. Prior to the cancellation, Columbus' Nathan Horton scored a power-play goal, staking the Jackets to an early 1-0 lead against Thomas and Co.
Peverley is conscious and headed to the hospital, after collapsing on the bench during Monday's game, Sportsnet 590's Daren Millard reports.
Peverley, who has previously dealt with complications from an irregular heartbeat, collapsed on the bench during Monday's game, creating a sense of panic among the Stars' other players. Fortunately, Peverley regained consciousness in the following minutes and is headed to a hospital for further evaluation. He seems to be out of immediate danger but may still be dealing with a very serious health situation.
The Capitals have placed Grabovski (ankle) on the injured reserve list retroactive to Feb. 27, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
The team did not specify whether Grabovski was on the short-term or long-term injured reserve list, the latter having salary cap implications. The designation will open up a roster spot for the Capitals to recall a player from Hershey. Grabovski stated on Saturday that he was hopeful to resume skating some time this week, but so far no timetable has been given for his return.
03/10/14 - 1:41PM ETBrad Stuart
: Not Close To Returning
Stuart (upper body) is not close to returning, CSN Bay Area reports.
Stuart still isn't participating in contact drills at practice, although head coach Todd McLellan did say that he is continuing to work on his conditioning. The blueliner hasn't suited up since February 7, but recorded three goals and six assists before getting hurt.
03/10/14 - 10:31AM ETPaul Stastny
: (Back) Won't Play Monday
Stastny (back) will not play Monday vs. the Jets.
The Avs are officially listing Stastny as day-to-day after he left Saturday's game with a back issue and wasn't present at Monday's morning skate. The team will try to get by with defenseman Nick Holden skating as the 12th forward, but should Stastny's injury linger deeper into this week, an forward call-up from the minors would grow more likely.
Coach Lindy Ruff confirmed Monday that Lehtonen is experiencing concussion symptoms and has no timetable for a return, NHL.com's Mark Stepneski reports.
As was feared, Lehtonen will likely be out of commission for at least a handful of games after taking a helmet-to-helmet and head-to-crossbar hit in Saturday's win over the Wild. Health concerns have dogged Lehtonen throughout his career, but he's generally held up well until this point, with a serviceable 25-16-10 record and 2.47 GAA to go along with it. The Stars will have to get by with Tim Thomas until further notice as the team looks to remain in the thick of the Western Conference playoff hunt.
03/10/14 - 9:19AM ETJosh Gorges
: (Hand) To Miss Four Weeks
Gorges underwent surgery on his fractured left hand Monday and is expected to miss four weeks.
Gorges' projected timetable would seem to run up with the end of the regular season, effectively making him an afterthought in any annual fantasy league. The Canadiens should have their most proficient shot blocker close to full health by the time the playoffs commence.
Luongo gave up four goals on 41 shots in a loss to the Bruins on Sunday.
Luongo got a shutout in his first start back with the Panthers. However, that was against the Sabres. The Bruins are a very different level of competition. Playing for Florida, Luongo's win potential is limited.
03/09/14 - 4:43PM ETPaul Stastny
: (Back) No Additional Updates On Status
The Avs did not update Stastny's (back) status Sunday, the Denver Post reports.
The report adds that Stastny tweaked his back in Saturday's game against the Blues, while suggesting that the Avs aren't slated to update the forward's status until Monday, which clouds his status for the team's evening tilt against the Jets later that day.
After Kari Lehtonen suffered a head injury Saturday, the Stars went ahead and gave Nilstorp the call to serve as Tim Thomas' backup for the time being. Lehtonen is currently listed as day-to-day, but he took a pretty nasty spill into the crossbar and it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him miss several games. In 39 games with Texas this season, Nilstorp has gone 21-12-4 with a 2.58 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Luongo will start in goal Sunday against the Bruins, Erin Brown of FOX Sports Florida reports.
In what was a widely considered the biggest surprise of the trade deadline, the Canucks shipped Luongo back to the Panthers on Tuesday, with whom he played from 2000-2006. He'll serve as the Panthers' primary goalkeeper moving with Tim Thomas now in Dallas. Sunday will mark Luongo's first time facing the Bruins since 2011.
03/09/14 - 1:37PM ETChad Johnson
: Starting For Bruins On Sunday
Johnson will start Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Johnson will square off against Florida's Roberto Luongo on Sunday, while giving Tuukka Rask -- Saturday's starter in nets for the B's -- a breather.
Scrivens will get the nod Sunday when the Oilers host the Kings, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Scrivens will be back between the pipes for his third consecutive start, as he's officially taken the reins as primary goalkeeper after Ilya Bryzgalov's trade earlier in the week. The 27-year-old Scrivens has come out on top in his last two outings, and has posted a 1.71 GAA and a .942 save percentage at home this season.
Coach Lindy Ruff said Lehtonen (head) was not doing well Sunday, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Lehtonen was on the receiving end of a vicious blow from the Wild's Erik Haula on Saturday, and was left bloody after hitting his head on the crossbar. He left under his own power, and the team is calling it a head injury for now, but one can't help but wonder if a concussion may be in play. Either way, Tim Thomas will likely start Monday against Columbus, and the team figures to recall a goalkeeper from the AHL to serve as his backup.
03/09/14 - 10:19AM ETRay Emery
: (Groin) Doubtful For Tuesday
Emery (groin) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Devils, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The groin injury appears likely to keep Emery out for a fifth straight game, and if coach Craig Berube decides Steve Mason needs a rest, 25-year-old Cal Heeter could make his NHL debut.
03/09/14 - 8:48AM ETChris Stewart
: (Ankle) Out At Least One More Week
Stewart (ankle) will be out for at least another week, according to interim coach Ted Nolan.
After enduring immense trade talk at the deadline, Stewart remained a Sabre, but then suffered an ankle injury during Thursday's game against the Lightning. Nolan says it's at least a week, but it could be much longer. The team will continue to update his condition throughout the week.
Klesla will not report the Sabres' AHL affiliate and plans to continue his career in Europe, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Klesla, a borderline NHL player at this point, shouldn't have much trouble finding suitors in Europe. He was recently assigned to AHL Rochester, after getting assigned to AHL Portland while he was with the Capitals earlier this season. It sounds like he'll take some time off before locating his next team.
Downie (illness) will not play Saturday vs. the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Downie apparently came down with a case of the flu over the afternoon and will take Saturday off to rest up and recover. Jay Rosehill enters the lineup in his stead.
03/08/14 - 2:36PM ETRyan Miller
: 26 Saves in Another Win
Miller turned away 26 of 27 shots in Saturday's win over the Avalanche.
The 33-year-old has been everything the Blues could have expected and more in his first four starts with the team, all of which have been victories. He's surrendered two or fewer goals in each outing and should continue to rack up the wins for his new team.
MacArthur will not need surgery on his injured hand and could return to the lineup as soon as next Saturday, the Ottawa Citizen reports.
MacArthur isn't playing Saturday and won't play Monday but could conceivably return next weekend. He injured a tendon in his hand and is hoping that the pain will die down with rest in the next few days.
03/08/14 - 1:55PM ETPaul Stastny
: Leaves Saturday With Injury
Stastny left Saturday's game versus the Blues with a back injury and is doubtful to return, the official Twitter feed of the Colorado Avalanche reports.
Stastny spent just 0:40 on the ice before leaving Saturday's matinee division showdown with the Blues. He has dealt with back issues in the past, so the Avalanche are likely being extra cautious with their star center. Stastny is an integral piece of the Avs' top-six forward group and any extended absence would undoubtedly have a major impact on the team's offense. More info to come.
03/08/14 - 11:01AM ETRyan Murray
: (Knee) Out 4-6 Weeks
Murray underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Saturday and will miss the next four to six weeks.
The injury comes as devastating timing with the Blue Jackets fighting for a contention for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and in need of as many key contributors as possible to secure a spot. For fantasy owners, Murray's absence is similarly damaging, as the 20-year-old ranked third among all rookies in hits (93) and fifth in power-play points among rookie defensemen (6). Even if the Blue Jackets do qualify for the playoffs, Murray could be hard-pressed to be healthy in time given his lengthy timetable.
03/08/14 - 10:12AM ETEvgeny Kuznetsov
: Will Make NHL Debut Monday
Kutznetsov agreed to an entry-level contract with the Capitals on Saturday.
There was some uncertainty as to whether or not the prized prospect would actually arrive in Washington this season, but it appears he is set to make his long-awaited debut Monday against the Penguins. Coach Adam Oates will probably ease him into the fold so as not dramatically shape up his lines right away, but the 21-year-old is a high-end talent that could very well make an immediate impact in the NHL. By virtue of his standing as a top-flight prospect, he makes for a good speculative add in deep or mid-sized format.
Clarkson left Saturday's morning skate due to a leg issue, TSN's Jonas Siegel reports.
Clarkson seemed to injure his leg towards the end of practice Friday, so apparently the issue could be more serious than originally perceived. They are calling it a muscle pull, so consider him day-to-day and questionable for Saturday's game.
Laich (groin) was not on the ice for the team's morning skate and is doubtful to play Saturday night against Phoenix, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
This is the third-straight day that Laich has been unable to skate due to the injury. Coach Adam Oates said that he hoped to have him back for Saturday but that seems unlikely now. Continue to view him as day-to-day and expect the team to update his condition over the weekend.
Luongo stopped all 25 shots he faced as the Panthers beat the Sabres 2-0 on Friday in the netminder's debut for his new team.
Luongo was brought back to be the team's primary goalie, as Tim Thomas was shipped off to Dallas at the trade deadline. The shutout was his fourth of the season and he is now 20-16-6 with a 2.32 GAA and .919 save percentage.
Neuvirth stopped 42 of 44 shots but took the loss in his Sabres debut Friday.
Neuvirth came over from the Capitals at the trade deadline and got the start but is still considered the backup to Jhonas Enroth, though it sounds like the rest of the season could be used to raise some competition for 2014-15. Neuvirth played a solid game as the Panthers peppered him with shots all night, but with little offensive support, he did the best he could. He is now 4-7-2 with a 2.76 GAA and .918 save percentage.
