Bernier will start Wednesday in Ottawa.

Bernier allowed two goals on 37 shots in the Red Wings loss in Edmonton last Friday. Bernier opened the season with two wins but has lost two in a row since then. Overall, he has a 3.02 GAA and .905 SV% but has played very well at times and makes for an interesting spot-start option in Ottawa for owners who are desperate for goaltending help.

Jarry will start Wednesday in Tampa Bay.

Jarry allowed just one goal on 22 shots in the Penguins loss to Vegas on Saturday. Jarry was great but Marc-Andre Fleury was sensational at the other end of the ice and dealt Jarry his first loss of the season. Jarry has allowed just three goals on 51 shots (.941 SV%) in two starts this year but has a rough matchup in Tampa Bay with his team on a back-to-back.

Rantanen is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.

Head coach Jared Bednar said he doesn't feel like it will be a "4-to-6 week" injury and expects him back sooner than that. The Avalanche have officially placed the "week-to-week" tag on him, so expect him to miss at least a couple of weeks. He will be re-evaluated after that and then you can expect another update from Colorado.

The Bruins have assigned Anders Bjork to Providence (AHL).

Bjork made his season debut vs. the Maple Leafs on Tuesday but gets sent back to the AHL because the Bruins are off until Saturday. How the injured Bruins recover over the next few days will determine whether or not Bjork will return for the weekend.

Dubnyk (lower-body) is not expected to be available for Thursday’s game.

Dubnyk was forced to leave Tuesday’s game vs. the Oilers with a lower-body injury. Dubnyk stopped all nine shots he faced before leaving the game and Alex Stalock closed out the team shutout. Stalock is expected to start Thursday and Kaapo Kahkonen was recalled from Iowa (AHL) to serve as his backup.

The Wild have recalled Kaapo Kahkonen from Iowa (AHL).

Not to be confused with this summer’s No.2 overall pick Kaapo Kakko, Kahkonen was a fourth-round pick in 2014. The 23-year-old netminder has gone 4-0-0 with a 2.95 GAA and .886 SV% in four AHL games this season. He is expected to serve as Alex Stalock’s backup on Thursday because Devan Dubnyk was banged up in Tuesday’s win.

The Jets have claimed Luca Sbisa off of waivers from Anaheim.

The Ducks were planning on signing Sbisa but he had to pass through waivers first. The Jets shut that idea down by claiming the 29-year-old defenseman. He had one assist in nine games with the Islanders last year and has 103 points (18G / 85A) in 504 career NHL games with the Flyers, Ducks, Canucks, Golden Knights and Islanders.

There's a "good chance" Paquette (arm) will make his season debut on Wednesday.

Paquette has missed the first eight games of the 2019-20 season but is expected to make his debut vs. the Penguins. Paquette will centre the fourth line with Patrick Maroon and Luke Witkowski. The 26-year-old had 13 goals and four assists (17 points) in 80 games last season.

Nilsson starts Wednesday vs. the Red Wings.

Nilsson stopped 41 of 43 shots in the Senators' loss in Dallas on Monday. Nilsson was outstanding for the second straight game but the Senators offence couldn't help him out. The 29-year-old netminder has stopped 93 of the last 97 shots (.959 SV%) that he has faced and is an intriguing option against a struggling Red Wings team that is on the tail-end of a back-to-back.

Vasilevskiy will start Wednesday vs. the Penguins.

Vasilevskiy allowed six goals on 24 shots in the Lightning's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche last Saturday. The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for Vasilevskiy, who is 4-2-0 with a 3.15 GAA and .899 SV% on the season. Tonight he faces the Penguins, who are on the tail-end of a back-to-back. They were shutout (3-0) in their first back-to-back set.
