Sceviour (upper-body) missed Monday’s practice; doubtful for Tuesday’s game in Montreal.
Sceviour suffered and upper-body injury in the Panthers’ win in Washington on Saturday, lasting just 3:40 TOI. Sceviour was held off of the ice this morning and is expected to be replaced by Connor Brickley tomorrow.
McCann (lower-body) missed Monday’s practice; doubtful for Tuesday’s game in Montreal.
McCann was forced to leave Saturday’s game in Washington with a lower-body injury and likely will not play on Tuesday. McCann has had a really nice start to 2017-18, posting a two goals and three assists (five points) in seven games. If McCann can’t play, look for Denis Malgin to draw in as the third line centre.
Wilson (undisclosed) will not play on Tuesday.
Wilson missed Monday’s practice with an undisclosed injury and will not play tomorrow vs. the Stars. Wilson has struggled with his new team, compiling just two assists in eight games to start the season. With Wilson out, look for Gabriel Bourque to make his season debut.
Nemeth (lower-body) will not play on Tuesday.
Nemeth suffered a lower-body injury in his return to the Colorado lineup on Thursday. The blueliner was not on the ice for Monday’s practice and will be held out of the lineup on Tuesday. Andrei Mironov was recalled from San Antonio this afternoon, so Nemeth could miss more than one game.
Fleury (concussion) will not return to the Golden Knights crease this week.
Fleury has been sidelined by a concussion since October 13th and will miss at least two more games this week. With Malcolm Subban suffering an injury of his own this weekend, the Golden Knights turn to the inexperienced duo of Oscar Dansk and Maxime Lagace between the pipes for at least two contests.
Ovechkin said it’s “nothing serious” after leaving Monday’s practice; expects to practice on Tuesday.
Ovechkin got tangled up at practice and limped off, but said after the session that it’s nothing serious and he expects to return to practice on Tuesday. The Capitals avoided disaster today and with them off until Thursday, expect the Russian sniper to be in the lineup in Vancouver.
Getzlaf (lower-body) will return to the Ducks lineup on Tuesday.
Getzlaf missed the last three games and five of the first seven, but will return to the lineup tomorrow. In the only two games that he has appeared in, Getzlaf has picked up two assists and four shots on goal.
Lindholm (shoulder) will make his season debut on Tuesday.
Lindholm’s injury couldn’t come at a better time as the Ducks lost Cam Fowler on the weekend. Lindholm missed the first seven games of the season with a shoulder injury, but is expected to log massive minutes on the Ducks’ top-pair starting tomorrow.
Rask (concussion) returned to the ice on Monday.
Rask missed the last two games with a concussion, but he was on the ice with Bruins’ goalie coach Bob Essensa before Bruins practice this morning which is a good sign. Rask doesn’t have a timetable for his return, but his next step would be to get into practice. In the mean time, the Bruins will continue to lean on Anton Khudobin.
Burakovsky will miss Monday’s practice with an upper-body injury.
After being dropped to the third line on Friday, Burakovsky recorded a goal and assist, but he is reportedly banged up following this weekend’s back-to-back set. The Capitals are off until Thursday, so even if he’s kept off of the ice today he could avoid missing any time.
Stecher left Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return.
The Canucks did not have an update on Stecher post-game, but head coach Travis Green said “it was a knee-on-knee hit, so we’ll see what happens.” Consider Stecher as questionable for Tuesday's game in Minnesota.
The Flames placed Jaromir Jagr on IR with a lower-body injury.
Jagr left Saturday’s game vs. Minnesota with a lower-body injury and was placed on IR retroactive to Saturday, so he will be forced to miss at least the next three games. Jagr is eligible to return Saturday vs. the Capitals, but it remains to be seen how long he will be sidelined. With Jagr out, expect either Sam Bennett or Michael Ferland to see time on the top-line with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.
The Golden Knights placed Malcolm Subban (lower-body) on IR.
Subban suffered the injury during an excellent performance in Saturday’s eventual overtime win against St. Louis. Before getting hurt and turning the duties over to Oscar Dansk, Subban stopped 37 of 38 shots, keeping the Golden Knights afloat. Subban had been excellent while filling in for Marc-Andre Fleury, stopping 88 of 94 shots (.936 SV%) but now joins Fleury on IR.
The Avalanche placed J.T. Compher (thumb) on IR.
Compher broke his thumb against the Blues on Friday and is expected to miss three weeks. Moving Compher to IR opened up a roster spot for the Avalanche to recalled A.J. Greer from San Antonio (AHL). Look for him to miss roughly 6-8 games.
The Avalanche placed Tyson Jost (lower-body) on IR.
Jost suffered a lower-body injury against the Blues on Friday and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Moving Jost to IR opened up a roster spot for the Avalanche to recalled Gabriel Bourque from San Antonio (AHL). Look for him to miss roughly 4-6 games.
