  • Sharks' Evgeny Svechnikov: Not on road trip

    Svechnikov (lower body) did not accompany the Sharks to Canada for the team's three-game road this week, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Coach David Quinn indicated Monday that Svechnikov could be out for a while. The Sharks forward has generated 14 points, 60 shots on goal and 86 hits in 53 contests this campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Andreas Englund: Could return Thursday

    Englund (hamstring) could be back in the lineup Thursday against the Capitals, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Englund, who will miss his seventh straight game Monday against Colorado, is expected to join the Blackhawks in Washington. He has picked up six shots on goal, five blocks and 16 hits in five contests with Chicago since being acquired from Colorado.

  • Petr Mrazek G | CHI

    Blackhawks' Petr Mrazek: Will join team Thursday

    Mrazek (groin) will not be available for Monday's clash with Colorado but is expected to rejoin the team against Washington on Thursday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Mrazek has failed to secure a victory in six consecutive contests, posting a 0-4-1 record and 2.78 GAA. Once given the green light to return, Mrazek figures to split the workload with Alex Stalock. At 31 years of age, Mrazek is the youngest of the Hawks' three current goalies on the roster and the only one under contract beyond this season.

  • Sharks' James Reimer: Starting in Edmonton

    Reimer will guard the road goal Monday versus Edmonton, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Reimer is coming off a 30-save effort in last Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to Seattle. He has a 10-17-7 record this season with a 3.26 GAA and an .895 save percentage in 35 appearances. The Oilers rank first in the league this campaign with 3.91 goals per game.

  • Alex Stalock G | CHI

    Blackhawks' Alex Stalock: Exits ice first Monday

    Stalock was the first goalie to leave the ice ahead of Monday's road matchup with Colorado, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.

    Stalock has appeared in four of the Hawks' last six contests in which he posted a 3-2-0 record, 2.47 GAA and .930 save percentage. Until Petr Mrazek (groin) is cleared to return, the 35-year-old Stalock figures to serve as the primary option between the pipes.

  • Jakub Zboril D | BOS

    Bruins' Jakub Zboril: Grabs assist Sunday

    Zboril registered an assist versus the Sabres on Sunday.

    Zboril was back in the lineup for the first time since Feb. 23 against the Kraken. It was just the fourth appearance for the season for the blueliner since mid-November. With the Bruins rotating their blueliners ahead of a postseason run, Zboril could crack the lineup periodically but figures to remain primarily a healthy scratch more often than not.

  • Jiri Patera G | LV

    Golden Knights' Jiri Patera: Sent back to minors

    Patera was returned to AHL Henderson on Monday.

    Patera has played in two NHL games this season in which he posted a 2-0-0 record and .929 save percentage. Unless Adin Hill (lower body) is ready to return versus the Canucks on Tuesday, Patera could be called back up to serve as the No. 2 option behind Jonathan Quick.

  • Kings' Pheonix Copley: Set to face Flames

    Copley will patrol the home crease Monday against Calgary, Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period reports.

    Copley is coming off a 29-save performance in Thursday's 4-1 win over Columbus. He has a 21-4-3 record this season with a 2.63 GAA and a .904 save percentage. The Flames rank 18th in the league this campaign with 3.13 goals per game.
