  • Flames' Chris Tanev: Still sidelined versus Kings

    Tanev (upper body) will remain on the shelf against Los Angeles on Tuesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Tanev was stuck in a 10-game pointless streak prior to suffering his upper-body injury. After racking up a career-high 28 points last year, the Toronto native will be hard-pressed to even reach the 20-point mark this season. In his stead, Dennis Gilbert figures to remain in the lineup until Tanev is cleared to return.

  • Flames' Jacob Markstrom: Guarding goal Tuesday

    Markstrom will guard the home net Tuesday against Los Angeles, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Markstrom is coming off a 28-save performance in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Sharks. He has a 20-20-10 record this season with a 2.98 GAA and an .890 save percentage through 52 games played. Markstrom has gone 1-1-0 versus the Kings this year, having allowed 11 goals on 55 shots. Los Angeles sits fifth in the league this campaign with 3.45 goals per game.

  • Blues' Jordan Binnington: Leaves ice first

    Binnington was the first goalie to exit the ice Tuesday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, indicating he'll tend the twine at home versus Vancouver.

    Binnington is over the 20-win mark for the first time since 2019-20 but is still sporting a career-worst 3.38 GAA and .892 save percentage. Even with the netminder struggling, Thomas Greiss continues to serve primarily as the No. 2 option for the Blues.

  • Kevin Gravel D | NSH

    Predators' Kevin Gravel: Joining NHL roster

    Gravel was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday.

    Gravel has just one point in 18 games with the Predators this season, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting him to produce offensively against the Bruins on Tuesday. Once Roman Josi (upper body) is cleared to play, Gravel is a near-lock to be sent back to the minors.

  • Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Tending twine Tuesday

    Ullmark will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Nashville, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.

    Ullmark has won his past three outings, including a 26-save performance in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Tampa Bay. He has a 36-5-1 record this season with a 1.92 GAA and a .937 save percentage in 44 appearances. The Predators rank 28th in the league this campaign with 2.76 goals per game.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Called up from minors

    McCarron was elevated from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday.

    McCarron figures to immediately step into the lineup against the Bruins on Tuesday after Juuso Parssinen (upper body) stayed back in Nashville for the team's two-game road trip. The 28-year-old McCarron is pointless in 16 consecutive contests and figures to see limited minutes in a fourth-line role.

  • Jakub Lauko C | BOS

    Bruins' Jakub Lauko: Out with upper-body problem

    Lauko won't play versus the Predators on Tuesday due to an upper-body injury, Conor Ryan of Boston.com reports.

    Lauko scored his fourth goal of the season against Carolina on Sunday but now will be out of action for at least one game after being labeled day-to-day by coach Jim Montgomery. Even once cleared to play, the 23-year-old center will likely still have to serve as a periodic healthy scratch, limiting him to low-end fantasy value.

  • Jan Rutta D | PIT

    Penguins' Jan Rutta: Not with team in Detroit

    Rutta (lower body) did not travel for Tuesday's clash with the Red Wings.

    Rutta will be out of action for his sixth straight contest due to his lingering lower-body problem. Prior to getting hurt, the veteran blueliner was stuck in a 33-game goal drought dating back to Nov. 23 versus Calgary. During that stretch, the Czech native notched just four assists and shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of offensive upside even once cleared to play.

  • Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Spotted at practice

    Samsonov (personal) returned to practice Tuesday, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Samsonov has been away from the team for the past week to be present for the birth of his child, but he should be available for Wednesday's matchup with the Panthers. The 26-year-old goaltender has gone 24-9-3 while posting a 2.46 GAA and a .914 save percentage through 36 appearances this season.

  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: In goal Tuesday

    DeSmith will get the starting nod on the road against Detroit on Tuesday, Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff reports.

    DeSmith will make his third straight start after conceding a combined six goals on 67 shots (.910 save percentage) in his previous two outings. The 31-year-old New Hampshire native could see some extra starts down the stretch with Tristan Jarry dealing with injuries and struggling to put together wins.
