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.

Rantanen left Monday’s game with a lower-body injury and will not return.

Rantanen suffered a pretty ugly looking lower-body injury in the first period of Monday’s game in St. Louis. Rantanen suffered a non-contact injury, twisting his knee while skating out of the offensive zone. Non-contact injuries are usually bad news but the Avalanche likely won’t release any further information until Rantanen is evaluated.

Nilsson will start Monday in Dallas.

Nilsson stopped 52 of the 54 shots that he faced in Ottawa's shootout loss in Vegas last Thursday. It was an outstanding performance for Nilsson, who is 0-1-1 while allowing seven goals on 90 shots (.922 SV%) in two starts. Nilsson is always a risky option but tonight's matchup looks decent. Ottawa has lost five of their last six while averaging just 1.83 goals per game.

Grubauer will start Monday in St. Louis.

Grubauer surrendered four goals on 44 shots in Colorado's win in Florida last Friday. Grubauer has opened the season at 5-0-1 while posting a 2.79 GAA and .919 SV% but has allowed a combined 10 goals on 108 shots (.908 SV%) in his last three starts. Grubauer went 0-0-2 with a 2.87 GAA and .891 SV% in two games against the Blues last year--St. Louis enters play at 3-2-3 and 13th in the NHL in scoring (3.00 GF/gm).

Trocheck (undisclosed) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Penguins.

Trocheck was absent from Monday's practice and head coach Joel Quenneville is unsure whether his second-line centre will be available on Tuesday. The Panthers recently signed Brian Boyle to a one-year deal and the veteran was skating in Trocheck's spot in Monday's session.

Bjugstad (lower-body) will travel on the Penguins three-game road-trip.

Bjugstad has been sidelined since October 5th but will travel on the Penguins upcoming road-trip, which starts Tuesday in Florida. There's no indication whether or not Bjugstad will play on the trip but this is a step in the right direction for the 27-year-old centre.

Khudobin will start Monday vs. the Senators.

Khudobin allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Stars loss in Pittsburgh on Friday. Ben Bishop's house was hit by a tornado on Sunday night (he and his family are fine) and he missed the morning skate, so Khudobin will start vs. the Senators. Khudobin has lost all three of his starts while posting a 3.42 GAA and .888 SV% but he is a fantastic spot-start option with a home-matchup vs. a Senators team ranking 28th in offence (2.29 GF/gm).

Dansk will start Monday in Philadelphia.

With Marc-Andre Fleury starting the first nine games of the season and Malcolm Subban hurt, Dansk will start the front-end of Vegas' back-to-back. The 25-year-old netminder will be appearing in his first NHL games since October 30th, 2017. Dansk has gone 3-0-0 with a 1.78 GAA and .946 SV% in four career NHL appearances and was 27-13-2 with a 2.46 GAA and .913 SV% in 40 AHL games last year.

Dansk was the first goalie off of the ice at the Golden Knights morning skate.

With Marc-Andre Fleury starting the first nine games of the season and Malcolm Subban hurt, Dansk is expected to start the front-end of Vegas' back-to-back. The 25-year-old netminder will be appearing in his first NHL games since October 30th, 2017. Dansk has gone 3-0-0 with a 1.78 GAA and .946 SV% in four career NHL appearances and was 27-13-2 with a 2.46 GAA and .913 SV% in 40 AHL games last year.

Binnington will start Monday vs. the Avalanche.

Binnington allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Blues loss to the Canucks last Thursday. After losing three in a row while allowing a combined 11 goals with an .891 SV%, Jake Allen got the nod on Saturday but will come back to Binnington tonight vs. Colorado. He is 1-0-2 with a 2.56 GAA and .916 SV% on home-ice this year and faces an Avalanche team that is 7-0-1 and lead the NHL in goal-scoring (4.38 GF/gm).

Korpisalo will start Monday in Toronto.

Korpisalo surrendered three goals on 34 shots in the Blue Jackets loss to the Islanders on Saturday. The loss snapped a brief two-game winning streak for Korpisalo, who is now 3-2-1 with a 2.66 GAA and .905 SV% in six starts this season. He should be stapled to your bench on Monday though. The Maple Leafs are currently third in the NHL in scoring, averaging 3.89 goals per game thus far.

The Senators have recalled J.C. Beaudin from Belleville (AHL).

When Jordan Szwarz was sent back to Belleville, it pointed towards Artem Anisimov being ready for Monday's game, but Beaudin's recall suggests otherwise. The 22-year-old centre has no points in two AHL games this season and just nine goals and 14 assists (23 points) 98 career AHL games.

The Panthers signed Brian Boyle to a one-year, one-way contract.

Boyle has bounced around the NHL in recent years, playing for the Lightning, Maple Leafs, Devils and Rangers in the last three seasons. Boyle split last year between New Jersey and Nashville and finished the season with 18 goals and six assists (24 points) in 73 games. With Henrik Borgstrom going back to the AHL, Boyle figures to play a bottom-6 role with his new squad.

Elliott will start Monday vs. the Golden Knights.

Elliott allowed two goals on eight shots after replacing Carter Hart in the Flyers' blowout loss in Edmonton last Wednesday. Elliott has now given up four goals on 45 shots (.911 SV%) in two appearances this season and will make his second start of the year on Monday. The Golden Knights will roll-out their backup goalie as well but come in at 6-3-0 while averaging 3.44 goals per game (9th in the NHL).
