Doctors have told Bryan Little he should not play hockey during the upcoming season.

Little has been dealing with concussion-like symptoms since taking a puck to the head last November and hasn't played since. Doctors have advised Little not to play in the 2021 season, so unfortunately this could be the end of the 32-year-old's career. Paul Stastny was acquired to serve as the Jets' No.2 centre, a role typically filled by Little.

Kempny is expected to miss 6-to-8 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

Kempny had surgery for a torn hamstring in 2019 and struggled through most of 2020 and will now most, if not all of 2021 after suffering a torn Achilles’ tendon while training in the Czech Republic. After finding out about Kempny's injury, the Capitals re-signed Brendan Dillon to a four-year extension. Dillon filled in for Kempny next to John Carlson on the top-pair last year.

Comeau is not on the ice for the Stars morning skate and is questionable to play in Game 3.

Comeau was forced to leave Game 2 following a collision at centre ice. He left the ice hunched over and did not return to the game. His absence from Wednesday's morning skate suggests that Comeau will not be available for Game 3 vs. the Lightning.

Stamkos is unlikely to play in Game 2 but has not officially been ruled out.

Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said that he doesn’t think Stamkos will play in Game 2 but didn’t rule it out either. That makes Stamkos a game-time decision but more doubtful than probable. The Lightning have scored just four goals in their last three games (1.33 GF/gm) so they could use a 400-goal scorer.
