  • Gustav Nyquist CLB C
    Blue Jackets' Gustav Nyquist: Exits in second period
    11m ago

    Nyquist (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus the Capitals in the second period, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Portzline adds that there was no update on Nyquist's status after the game. The 33-year-old winger played in all 82 games last season after missing the entire 2020-21 campaign -- he's been one of the more durable players in the league, but it's unclear if this injury will cause him to miss time at the start of the season.

    Jets' Mason Appleton: Exits with injury
    31m ago

    Appleton (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus the Oilers after two periods, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

    Appleton was hit by Tyler Benson in the second period and didn't appear to be shaken up, but the Jets kept the winger out of the third period. Shannon adds that it's likely just a precautionary exit for a minor injury, but fantasy managers in deeper formats will nonetheless want to keep an eye on Appleton's recovery. The 26-year-old's next chance to play is Wednesday versus the Flames.

    43m ago

    Katchouk was injured in Saturday's preseason game versus the Red Wings, and he will be evaluated Sunday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    It's unclear what kind of injury Katchouk is dealing with, though more information could surface once his evaluation is complete. The 24-year-old winger figures to compete for a bottom-six role with the Blackhawks throughout the year. He likely won't play Sunday versus the Wild.

    Pickering was limited by an upper-body injury in training camp and didn't play in a preseason game. With little chance to get up to speed, he'll instead begin the year in the junior ranks, where he'll likely spend most or all of 2022-23.

    Canadiens' Jonathan Drouin: Confirmed to play Saturday
    5h ago

    Drouin (wrist) is in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Senators.

    Drouin hasn't played since March 21 of last season, and he's underwent wrist surgery. The 27-year-old has the potential to play a top-six role this year, but it's always been a question of health more than talent for the Quebec native, who has missed double-digit games in each of the last three campaigns.

    Denisenko was sent down to AHL Charlotte on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Denisenko was among a handful of cuts from NHL camp Saturday. The 22-year-old winger has four assists in eight NHL games across two years, but the Panthers' deep offense makes it unlikely he'll see much time with the big club this year.

    Dal Colle was released from his professional tryout with the Senators on Saturday.

    Senators' Lassi Thomson: Sent down in latest camp cuts
    1h ago

    Thomson was reassigned to AHL Belleville on Saturday.

    Thomson won't make the NHL roster from the start this year. The 22-year-old registered five assists in 16 games last season while adding some physicality in a bottom-four role, so he could be a favorite for a call-up if the Senators' blue line needs reinforcements.

    Nutivaara (lower body) is not with the Sharks on the team's European trip, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Coach David Quinn said on Friday that Nutivaara's lower-body injury was related to the issue that limited the defenseman to one game last season. He was in the lineup a week ago for a preseason contest, but he didn't feel right afterward and now it appears as though he will be out for the start of the 2022-23 campaign.

    Nedeljkovic led the Red Wings onto the ice, indicating he'll start Saturday's road game versus the Blackhawks.

    Nedeljkovic will make his second start of the preseason in this game. The 26-year-old goalie figures to be part of a timeshare during the 2022-23 campaign. He didn't play that well in his first preseason game Wednesday against Chicago, but there's little doubt he'll make the NHL roster this year.

    Prosvetov was assigned to AHL Tucson on Saturday.

    Prosvetov was always a long shot to make the Coyotes' roster, and that became even more obvious when they claimed Jonas Johansson on waivers. Instead, Prosvetov will likely see a starter's workload at Tucson as he continues to gain professional experience in the minors.
