  • Anton Khudobin DAL G
    Stars' Anton Khudobin: Guarding crease Monday
    17m ago

    Khudobin (hip) will get the starting nod against the Blues on Monday, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Hockey Now reports.

    Khudobin likely enters training camp as the No. 3 option for the Stars but he could still challenge Scott Wedgewood for the backup job if he can put together a strong showing. Last year, Khudobin played in a mere nine NHL matches in which he went 3-4-1 with a career-worst .879 save percentage.

    Blackhawks' Mike Hardman: Out with groin problem
    20m ago

    Hardman will miss Monday's practice session due to a groin injury, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Hardman was limited to just 21 games for the Hawks last season in which he recorded two assists, 12 shots and 60 hits while averaging a mere 9:18 of ice time. Even if Hardman makes the Opening Night roster, which is far from guaranteed, he likely will have to spend some time as a healthy scratch watching from the press box.

  • Thomas Greiss STL G
    Blues' Thomas Greiss: Starting Monday
    43m ago

    Greiss is slated to be between the pipes versus Dallas on Monday.

    Greiss logged 31 games with Detroit last season in which he went 10-15-1 with a career-worst 3.66 GAA and .891 save percentage. The netminder will likely enter the upcoming season as the No. 2 option but could challenge Jordan Binnington for the starting job if Binnington continues to struggle as he did last season -- he managed just 18 wins in 37 outings last year.

  • Justin Barron MON D
    Canadiens' Justin Barron: Playing in preseason clash
    1h ago

    Barron (ankle) is set to suit up against New Jersey on Monday.

    Barron missed the final 12 games of the previous season due to his ankle problem but appears good to go for the new campaign. In limited action for the Habs and Avs last year, the 20-year-old blueliner notched one goal on 13 shots, one assist and five hits in seven combined contests. Heading into 2022-23, Barron should be in line for regular minutes moving forward and could offer solid fantasy value.

  • Jake Allen MON G
    Canadiens' Jake Allen: Set to start Monday
    1h ago

    Allen (groin) is expected to start Monday's preseason clash with New Jersey.

    With Carey Price's (knee) career all but over, Allen will enter the 2022-23 campaign as the presumptive starter for the Habs. The 32-year-old Allen went 9-20-4 in 35 appearances last season while sporting a career-worst 3.30 GAA. If the veteran continues to struggle, Samuel Montembeault (wrist) could challenge for more opportunities.

    Canadiens' Madison Bowey: Day-to-day with undisclosed injury
    1h ago

    Bowey was labeled day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, per the team's announcement Monday.

    Bowey logged a mere two NHL games last year with Vancouver and will likely have to split time between the NHL and AHL again this season. Without a clear path to regular minutes with the big club, Bowey shouldn't be expected to offer more than low-end fantasy value at best.

  • Nick Suzuki MON C
    Canadiens' Nick Suzuki: Will resume practicing in one week
    1h ago

    Suzuki (lower body) will rejoin practice after a week on the sidelines, the team announced Monday.

    Suzuki's return to practice likely won't see him immediately slot into a preseason contest, though he should still have a few chances to get onto the ice before Opening Night. Once cleared to play, Suzuki should reclaim his spot on the first line where he will be well positioned to match his 20-goal, 61-point 2021-22 campaign.

  • David Kampf TOR C
    Maple Leafs' David Kampf: Absent for personal reasons
    1h ago

    Kampf won't be at practice Monday while attending a personal matter, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Kampf's absence is unlikely to impact his availability for Opening Night against Montreal, though the team hasn't provided any specifics on when Kampf might return. In the meantime, Denis Malgin is slated to see some minutes with John Tavares and William Nylander which could help him secure a spot on the 23-man roster. For his part, Kampf figures to fill a bottom-six role once back with the team and should be a decent mid-range fantasy target.

  • Adam Gaudette TOR C
    Maple Leafs' Adam Gaudette: Dealing with shoulder injury
    1h ago

    Gaudette suffered a shoulder injury and won't be in attendance for practice Monday, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.

    Gaudette ended last season mired in a 35-game pointless streak, so fantasy players probably shouldn't be expecting much out of him heading into the 2022-23 campaign, assuming he is fit enough for Opening Night against Montreal. Even if given the all-clear, Gaudette is far from guaranteed for regular lineup appearances and may have to watch from the press box periodically as a healthy scratch.

  • Sean Couturier PHI C
    Flyers' Sean Couturier: Could return sooner than expected
    15h ago

    Couturier (back) could return within the next month if his rehab goes according to plan, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Couturier should be considered out indefinitely until a more concrete outlook is available. The 29-year-old is dealing with back issues for the second straight season and while his current injury doesn't appear to be as serious as originally expected, the team may elect to ease him back into action to prevent re-injury.

    Red Wings' Joe Veleno: Sits out scrimmage as a precaution
    21h ago

    Veleno didn't take part in Sunday's scrimmage for maintenance purposes, Max Bultman of The Athletic reports.

    Veleno is apparently dealing with a lower-body issue. He probably could have played Sunday had it been a regular season game.

  • Dylan Cozens BUF C
    Sabres' Dylan Cozens: Confident goals will come
    1d ago

    Cozens is confident that he will improve his goal scoring this season, Bill Hoppe of the Buffalo Hockey Beat reports.

    Cozens had some difficulty taking advantage of his scoring chances last season. However, he regained his confidence and scoring touch at the World Championship, potting seven goals and dishing six helpers in 10 games for Canada en route to a silver medal. The 21-year-old forward has 17 goals and 51 points through 120 career NHL contests.

    Flames' Andrew Mangiapane: Returns to practice
    1h ago

    Mangiapane (undisclosed) will be back on the ice for Monday's practice session, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Mangiapane was held out for the start of camp due to an undisclosed injury but appears set to suit up for Monday's session. The 26-year-old Toronto native is coming off a career year in which he racked up a personal best 35 goals and should be capable of repeating that feat this season as well.

    Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Hit by shot
    2h ago

    Kaprizov was removed from Sunday's matchup with Colorado for precautionary reasons after being hit by a puck, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Considering Kaprizov's exit was deemed precautionary, fantasy players probably don't have to be worried about the winger missing any significant time. Still, the situation should be monitored heading into Tuesday's preseason clash with Colorado. With Kaprizov out of the lineup, Marco Rossi stepped into a more prominent role and would likely continue if Kaprizov is sidelined Tuesday.

  • William Carrier LV LW
    Golden Knights' William Carrier: Injured Sunday
    12h ago

    Carrier (upper body) will not return to Sunday's preseason game against Colorado, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Carrier saw 9:37 of ice time before being knocked out of Sunday's game. The 27-year-old winger totaled a career-high 20 points last season and should be expected to maintain a middle-six role during the 2022-23 campaign. More information on his status should be available in the coming days.

    Boeser (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day and could practice Tuesday, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports.

    Head coach Bruce Boudreau said that Boeser is dealing with a "day-to-day thing," though he didn't guarantee that he'd be back at practice Tuesday. The 25-year-old forward landed a three-year extension this offseason after scoring 23 goals for the second straight year. More information on Boeser's status should be available during this upcoming week.

    It's unclear what type of injury Mikheyev is dealing with but he may have just been removed as a precaution. An update on the status of the 27-year-old winger should be available in the coming days.

    22h ago

    Kolyachonok (upper body) is slated to play in Sunday's preseason match against Anaheim, per Craig Morgan of PHNX Sports.

    Kolyachonok split the 2021-22 season between the NHL and AHL. He had one goal, two assists, 36 blocks and 39 hits in 32 appearances for the Coyotes. The 21-year-old blueliner sat out the final three matches of last season due to an upper-body injury.

The veteran blueliner missed all but 26 games last season while dealing with an injury to his face. More information on his status should be known once Vegas announces its lineup for Sunday's preseason tilt with Colorado.

  • Zach Bogosian TB D
    Lightning's Zach Bogosian: Skating but not cleared for contact
    3d ago

    Bogosian (shoulder) is on the ice at training camp in a red non-contact jersey, reports Tampa Bay Times.

    Bogosian hasn't been cleared for contact, but he looks closer than the estimated six-to-eight weeks that's estimated for his return. He was shooting and skating, and working with the skills group that includes many of the team's prospects. Bogosian was in and out of the lineup last season due to multiple injuries and delivered three goals and five assists in 48 regular-season games, and three assists in 22 postseason contests. He won't ring up points for fantasy managers, but he will deliver hits once he returns to the lineup. Bogosian had 114 hits last season and has delivered 1,247 in 737 career NHL games.
