Robert Bortuzzo (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is presumably retroactive to when Bortuzzo was injured on Feb. 16. He has a goal and eight points in 55 contests this season.

Anders Bjork has undergone shoulder surgery.

Bjork will need six months to recover, which means he's done for the 2017-18 campaign, but should be fine for training camp. He had four goals and 12 points in 30 games in his rookie season.

Jon Gillies will get his first start of the 2017-18 campaign on Thursday.

Gillies had made two appearances for the Flames before that and posted a 4.35 GAA and .815 save percentage over 69 minutes of ice time. At the AHL level, he has a 2.61 GAA and .915 save percentage in 31 contests this season.
Feb 22 - 3:35 PM

Vinni Lettieri has been summoned by the Rangers.

Lettieri has 14 goals and 23 points in 37 AHL games this season. With New York, he's scored a goal and five points in 16 contests.

Jonathan Quick will probably play between the pipes on Thursday.

Quick was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. Of course, given that the Kings traded backup goalie Darcy Kuemper on Wednesday, Quick will likely get almost all of Los Angeles' remaining starts for the 2017-18 campaign.

Paul LaDue has been reassigned to AHL Ontario.

LaDue has two goals and an assist in seven games with Los Angeles in 2017-18. He also has eight goals and 18 points in 36 AHL contests.

Jack Campbell has been called up by the Los Angeles Kings.

The Kings traded goalie Darcy Kuemper on Wednesday and while they got Scott Wedgewood in return, it might be that Wedgewood will need time to settle in. Either way, Campbell isn't likely to get a start with the Kings in the near future.

The Florida Panthers have acquired Frank Vatrano from the Boston Bruins in exchange for a third round pick.

Vatrano hasn't been able to play since Feb. 2 due to a lower-body injury and it's not clear when he'll return. Before the injury, his role with Boston was minimal this season as he averaged 9:28 minutes per game and had two goals in 25 contests. The 23-year-old was strong with UMass-Amherst before turning pro in 2015 and he has excelled at the AHL level. A fresh start might be what he needs to move past his more recent struggles and injury misfortune.

Drake Caggiula is dealing with an illness.

Caggiula will miss Thursday's game as a result. He has eight goals and 13 points in 46 games this season.
Feb 22 - 2:19 PM

Patrick Maroon is dealing with a lower-body injury.

The Oilers termed Maroon's issue as minor, but he won't play on Thursday. He has 14 goals and 30 points in 57 contests this season.
Feb 22 - 2:18 PM

Mike Fisher is working towards a potential March 1 season debut.

The plan is to start him on the fourth line when he's ready and give him about 10 minutes per game. From there his role could grow depending on how he's responding. Fisher might not be a big factor for the Predators, but he would provide them with some valuable depth and his presence will likely be helpful given his experience and former role as the team captain.
Feb 22 - 2:16 PM

Brandon Tanev (upper body) took part in Thursday's practice.

Tanev was wearing a non-contact jersey though. He'll probably miss Friday and Saturday's games, but he might be able to make his return on Tuesday.
Feb 22 - 2:13 PM

Steve Mason is no longer dealing with concussion symptoms.

That's great news of course, but Mason won't be returning to the Jets' lineup immediately. He hasn't played since Jan. 9 and will need time to get back into game shape. Look for him to be out for about another week.
Feb 22 - 2:11 PM

Eric Comrie has been sent to the minors.

Michael Hutchinson is ready to return from a concussion, so that's why Comrie has been reassigned. Comrie has appeared in one game for Winnipeg this season and stopped 30 of 35 shots in the contest.
