    Kraken's Joonas Donskoi: Suffers injury Thursday
    13h ago

    Donskoi (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Canucks, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.

    Donskoi was injured in a collision with teammate Kole Lind near the bench in the second period. The severity of Donskoi's injury is unknown, so it's possible the Kraken are being cautious with the 30-year-old winger in a preseason contest.

    Kraken's Michal Kempny: Leaves after collision
    13h ago

    Kempny (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Canucks, Kate Shefte of The Seattle Times reports.

    Kempny was injured on a hit behind the net in the second period. The Kraken may be taking a cautious approach with the defenseman, who has played in just 73 games across the last three campaigns due to various injuries.

    Stars' Ty Dellandrea: Sustains broken finger
    14h ago

    Dellandrea will be out for a couple of weeks due to a broken bone in his finger, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Dellandrea's injury won't require surgery, but it will cost him the rest of the preseason. There's a chance he could still make the Stars' Opening Night roster if he only misses two weeks, but the team may want the 22-year-old to get some game action in with AHL Texas first.

    Devils' Tyce Thompson: Injured in Thursday's game
    15h ago

    Thompson (undisclosed) left Thursday's game versus the Rangers with an injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Thompson logged just one shift in the first period and didn't return, though information regarding his injury was not available immediately after the game. The 23-year-old forward was likely to be a long shot for the NHL roster this year, so his injury isn't likely to have a large fantasy impact.

    Stars' Ty Dellandrea: Leaves game with injury
    15h ago

    Dellandrea (upper body) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Wild.

    Dellandrea suffered the injury blocking a shot in the second period. The 22-year-old has had a solid preseason and could have carved out a role with the big club to begin the year, but he may lose that opportunity if he can't move past this injury quickly.

    Kraken's Joey Daccord: Starting against Vancouver
    16h ago

    Daccord will guard the road goal in Vancouver on Thursday.

    Daccord made an appearance in Monday's game versus the Oilers, but he'll get a chance to start for the first time this preseason in this contest. The 26-year-old projects as the Kraken's No. 3 goalie this year, behind the expected NHL tandem of Philipp Grubauer and Martin Jones.

    Blue Jackets' Cole Sillinger: Returning to game action
    19h ago

    Sillinger (upper body) will play Thursday versus the Blues, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.

    Sillinger has battled an upper-body injury during training camp, but he made it through full-contact practice Thursday without issue. The 19-year-old center will be eased in, playing between Mathieu Olivier and Cole Fonstad on the projected fourth line in this contest, though Sillinger should have a chance to challenge for top-six minutes once the regular season rolls around.

    Ducks' Mason McTavish: Dealing with undisclosed injury
    20h ago

    McTavish is dealing with an undisclosed injury, but coach Dallas Eakins doesn't expect it to be a long-term issue, Lisa Dillman of The Orange County Register reports.

    McTavish is expected to have a full-time role with the Ducks in 2022-23 after picking up two goals and three points through nine top-level appearances as an 18-year-old last season, so the team will undoubtedly proceed with caution with the No. 3 overall pick from the 2021 Entry Draft. Check back for another update on McTavish's status once he's cleared for game action.

  • Turner Elson NYR C
    Rangers' Turner Elson: Waived Thursday
    21h ago

    Elson was placed on waivers by the Rangers on Thursday, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Elson logged just two games for the Red Wings last season and is unlikely to make a significant impact in the NHL this year either. Without a clear path to minutes, Elson will be a relative non-factor in fantasy contests moving forward and will report to AHL Hartford once he clears waivers.

    Rangers' C.J. Smith: Lands on waivers
    21h ago

    Smith was waived by the Rangers on Thursday, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed, Smith will be assigned to AHL Hartford. The 27-year-old forward will likely spend most, if not all of the 2022-23 campaign in the minors.

    Kings' Austin Wagner: Waived by LA
    21h ago

    Wagner was waived by the Kings on Thursday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    This doesn't come as a surprise, as Wagner spent the entirety of the 2021-22 campaign in the minors, picking up 22 points and 107 PIM in 55 games with AHL Ontario. In the likely scenario he passes through waivers unclaimed, he'll be assigned to Ontario.

    Coyotes' Michael Carcone: Lands on waiver wire
    23h ago

    Carcone was designated for waivers by the Coyotes on Thursday, Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports reports.

    Carcone is expected to play significant minutes with AHL Tucson this season and could earn his way back into the NHL at some point down the road. In limited action with the Yotes in the previous campaign, the Ontario native garnered four goals, two assists and 36 shots in 21 contests. If Carcone can bring his scoring touch to the NHL level, he could be a decent mid-range fantasy option in the future.

    Ranta was waived by the Avalanche on Thursday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Assuming he passes through waivers unclaimed, Ranta will head to AHL Colorado. The 22-year-old Finn went scoreless through 10 appearances with the big club last season.

    This is an encouraging development for Anderson, who has yet to appear in a preseason contest due to an upper-body injury. Check back for another update on the 28-year-old winger, who collected 19 goals and 32 points through 69 games last campaign, once he's cleared for contact.

    Klingberg left Wednesday's game versus the Coyotes to attend the birth of his daughter.

    Klingberg's exit was initially described as non-injury-related, and now more details are available. He'll likely spend a few days with his family before returning to action, though the veteran blueliner likely won't be affected much by this absence.

    Sharks' Markus Nutivaara: Dealing with lower-body issue
    21h ago

    Nutivaara is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    The Sharks are going to be cautious with Nutivaara, but at this point there's no reason to believe he won't be ready for San Jose's regular-season opener versus Carolina on Oct. 14. However, it's worth noting Nutivaara was limited to just one game with the Panthers in 2021-22 due to several different injuries.

  • Robert Hagg DET D
    Red Wings' Robert Hagg: Sidelined indefinitely
    1d ago

    Hagg (head) is out indefinitely and could miss the start of the season, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports Thursday.

    Hagg managed just nine points in 64 games for the Sabres and Panthers last season, so fantasy players shouldn't be expected to offer much offensively out of the blueliner. Even once cleared to play, Hagg is far from guaranteed to break into the lineup with consistency and may find himself as a healthy scratch periodically.

    Hunt was waived by the Avalanche on Thursday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    In the highly likely event Hunt goes unclaimed, look for him to be assigned to AHL Colorado. The 34-year-old blueliner tallied 17 points through 50 games with the Canucks last season.

    Maple Leafs' Rasmus Sandin: Inks two-year deal
    1d ago

    Sandin agreed to terms on a two-year, $2.8 million contract with Toronto on Thursday.

    The timing of Sandin's new deal may be happenstance, but it certainly won't look that way after both Jordie Benn (groin) and Carl Dahlstrom (shoulder) suffered injuries in Wednesday's preseason matchup with Montreal. Considering Sandin will just be getting back on the ice for his first training camp sessions, it seems unlikely he will be ready to play against the Senators on Friday, but he should have plenty of time to get up to speed before Opening Night.

    Lankinen is expected to start Thursday's preseason game versus the Lightning, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.

    Lankinen signed with the Predators in the offseason after posting a mediocre 3.50 GAA and an .891 save percentage in 32 games with the Blackhawks last year. The 27-year-old is expected to serve as the backup to Juuse Saros (ankle), who has yet to make his preseason debut.

    Elliott will start Thursday's preseason game versus the Predators, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Elliott enters the 2022-23 campaign as the presumptive backup to superstar goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy. While Elliott's role is secure, he's likely to see only 20-25 games during the season, so he's not on the season-long fantasy radar except as a streaming option when he starts.

    Bobrovsky will make his first preseason appearance in goal. The 34-year-old is expected to have an edge over Spencer Knight for starts in 2022-23, though the Panthers' goalie tandem could be one driven by performance rather than experience throughout the year.
