Who’s in, who’s out? All of the NHL’s latest injuries, line changes, trades and roster moves can be found in one place.

Vasilevksiy is expected to start Thursday in Boston.

Vasilevskiy stopped 33 of 34 shots in the Lightning’s win in Montreal on Tuesday. It was Vasilevskiy’s best outing of the young season and moved him to 3-1-0 with a 2.53 GAA and .921 SV% in four starts. Tonight he faces the Bruins in an Atlantic Division clash. He only faced Boston once last season (a 5-4 win) but they provide a stiff test, even without David Krejci on the second line.

Tavares will miss at least two weeks with a broken finger.

Tavares sustained a broken finger late in the Maple Leafs’ loss to the Capitals on Wednesday. Tavares will be out for at least two weeks and will be re-evaluated by the medical staff at that point. This is obviously a massive blow for the Maple Leafs and a rarity for Tavares, who has only missed a combined nine games over the last five seasons.

The NHL has suspended Valentin Zykov for 20 games for violating the terms of the NHL Performance Enhancing Substances Program.

This is the second Golden Knights’ player to get suspended for PEDs in the last two seasons. Zykov’s suspension likely means that Brandon Pirri will be in the lineup on Thursday but it could also mean an extended stay for Cody Glass. A 20-game suspension means Zykov isn’t eligible to return until November 29th vs. The Coyotes.

Varlamov was the first goalie off of the ice at the Islanders morning skate.

Varlamov gave up two goals on 37 shots in the Islanders win over the Panthers last Saturday. Varlamov and Thomas Greiss continue to alternate games, with both netminders playing well in recent outings. As a former member of the Avalanche, Varlamov has seen a lot of the Jets in recent years—going 4-3-0 with a .928 SV% against them over the last three years.

Price will make his fourth consecutive start on Thursday.

Price gave up three goals on 22 shots in the Canadiens loss to the Lightning on Tuesday. Through five starts, Price has allowed at least three goals in every game, totalling in a 3.33 GAA and .896 SV%. It’s not a good streak but a home matchup with the Wild is a good opportunity to end it. Minnesota is 1-5-0 and are averaging just 2.33 goals per game (t-26th).
