  • Zach Hyman C | EDM

    Oilers' Zach Hyman: Sitting out with illness

    Hyman (illness) won't play Tuesday versus the Golden Knights.

    Hyman can be considered day-to-day beyond Tuesday's contest. His absence will likely give Sam Gagner a chance to return to the lineup. Hyman has seven points over his last three games, so his production will be hard to replace for both the Oilers and fantasy managers.

  • Dylan Larkin C | DET

    Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Set to miss next two games

    Larkin (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers and is unlikely to play Thursday versus Chicago, per Max Bultman of The Athletic.

    Larkin has racked up eight goals, 21 points and 70 shots on net in 20 games this season. His spot on the top unit will be filled by J.T. Compher. The Red Wings also brought up Jonatan Berggren on Tuesday from AHL Grand Rapids to play in Wednesday's contest.

  • Filip Chytil C | NYR

    Rangers' Filip Chytil: Shifts to LTIR

    Chytil (upper body) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Chytil, who has been skating on his own, can be activated whenever he is ready to return because he is retroactive to Nov. 3, per Dan Rosen of NHL.com. Chytil has six assists and 22 shots on goal over 10 appearances this season.

  • Jets' Gabriel Vilardi: Not quite ready to return

    Per Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site, Vilardi (knee) won't play Tuesday against Dallas, but he could be ready to return Thursday versus Edmonton.

    Vilardi, who hasn't played since Oct. 17 against the Kings, might end up being a game-time decision for Thursday's contest. The 24-year-old forward is expected to be a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Vilardi is projected to return to the second line once he is cleared to play.

  • Wild's Vinni Lettieri: Recalled from AHL

    Lettieri was summoned from AHL Iowa on Tuesday.

    Lettieri has produced two goals, 14 shots on net and 11 hits in 11 NHL appearances this season. He is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday versus St. Louis because of Ryan Hartman's two-game suspension.

  • Rangers' Jonny Brodzinski: Recalled from AHL

    Brodzinski was brought up from AHL Hartford on Tuesday.

    Brodzinski has 11 goals and 25 points in 16 AHL contests this campaign. He could get a chance to make his second appearance of the season with the Rangers on Wednesday versus Detroit after Kaapo Kakko (lower body) was injured in Monday's 5-1 loss to Buffalo.

  • Devils' Max Willman: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Willman was assigned to AHL Utica on Tuesday.

    Willman has been a healthy scratch for five of New Jersey's last seven games, so he'll head to the minors to get some regular playing time. The 28-year-old winger will likely continue to bounce between levels throughout the season.

  • Sean Monahan C | MON

    Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Slumping after strong start

    Monahan has not recorded a point in six consecutive games, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports. The forward opened the season with 13 points over the first 16 games.

    Monahan took ownership of his slump following Monday's practice. "I think we've had ups and downs, and at the point we're at right now, we've got to be a lot better," Monahan said when asked about the play of his line with Tanner Pearson and Josh Anderson. "That starts with me being the centreman and trying to drive the line." The slump is about more than points scored; it's about how the Canadiens perform when Monahan is on the ice in five-on-five situations. Montreal has not scored a goal with him on the ice at five-on-five over the last 10 games. Looking at the first four contests of the current road trip is more dire, per Natural Stat Trick: at five-on-five, the Canadiens have been outshot 38-5 with Monahan on the ice, shot attempts are 77-19 and high-danger scoring chances are 22-2. The Canadiens finish their road trip Wednesday night in Columbus, which is coming off Monday's impressive 5-2 win over the Bruins.

  • Boone Jenner C | CLB

    Blue Jackets' Boone Jenner: Posts two assists in victory

    Jenner ended up with two assists in Monday's 5-2 win against the Bruins.

    Jenner also provided the physicality, dishing out six hits in his 19:37 of ice time, while winning nine of his 20 faceoff opportunities. One of his helpers came with the man advantage, and he has two power-play points in the past four outings while picking up at least one point in five of his past six games. He'll look to keep up the good work Wednesday against the visiting Canadiens.

  • Bruins' Matthew Poitras: Scores fifth goal of season

    Poitras scored a goal in Monday's 5-2 road loss against the Blue Jackets.

    Poitras ended up with a plus-1 rating while scoring on his only shot, and he won six of his 11 faceoff opportunities in 16:22 of ice time across 21 shifts. The 19-year-old pivot snapped a nine-game goal drought that dated back to a two-point performance Nov. 4 in Detroit. He'll look to carry the momentum into Thursday's home game against San Jose.
