Carter will undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a damaged ankle tendon; expected to be out at least six weeks.
Simmonds (lower-body) is expected to be in the Flyers lineup on Thursday.
van Riemsdyk (concussion) has been activated from IR; will play on Thursday.
Carter will undergo a surgical procedure on his left leg; Kings announce he is out indefinitely.
van Riemsdyk (concussion) took part in the morning skate; will play tonight if he is medically cleared.
Caggiula (undisclosed) took part in the morning skate but will not play in Chicago.
Draisaitl (concussion) took part in the morning skate but will not play in Chicago.
Draisaitl will not be in the lineup tonight vs. the Blackhawks, but it sounds like he could be back in the Oilers lineup as soon as Saturday. His return will be huge for the struggling Oilers, so monitor his status leading up to this weekend’s meeting with the Flyers.
Granlund (groin) will be a game-time decision on Friday.
Granlund has been bothered by a groin injury since the season opener but he was back on the ice for Thursday’s practice and skated on the top-line and top power-play unit, making him a game-time decision for tomorrow. Monitor his status during the pre-game skate, but it looks like he will return and it’s a huge addition for the Wild who are quite banged up right now.
Ferland (lower-body) will draw back into the Flames lineup on Thursday.
Ferland missed last Saturday’s game in Vancouver but will be back in the lineup tonight vs. Carolina. Ferland has already lost his top-line spot next two Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau and with that he lost most of his fantasy value. He has just one goal on 12 shots in five games this season.
Lehner is day-to-day with an illness.
Lehner was not on the ice for Thursday’s practice session because he is under the weather. This obviously puts his status for tomorrow’s game in question, leaving the door open for Chad Johnson to start his third straight game.
Gorges is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.
After being held out of the first three games of the season, Gorges got into the last four contests but is now sidelined with an undisclosed ailment. The Sabres have a couple of solid defensemen on the roster so this is not a huge loss for them at this time.
Girgensons is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.
Girgeonsons played just 2:30 TOI in the Sabres loss in Vegas on Tuesday, but it doesn’t sound like his injury is overly serious. He is listed as day-to-day and thus questionable for Friday, but don’t expect the Latvian forward to miss too much time.
Josefson is week-to-week with a lower-body injury.
Josefson left Sunday’s game in Anaheim with a lower-body injury and missed Tuesday’s game in Vegas as a result. Head coach Phil Housley came out on Thursday and said that Josefson will miss a couple weeks with the ailment.
