If Alexander Radulov isn’t ready to go, they’ll go with seven defensemen or call up a forward. Callups will be tricky given their cap situation.
- Mike Heika: The Stars have put Comeau on the IR retroactive to October 7th. If the Stars need to call someone up they can.
- Edmonton Oilers: Kassian could be ready for Saturday according to coach Dave Tippett. Forward Devin Shore missed last night’s game and is day-to-day.
- John Hoven: Don’t believe Andersson will be placed on the IR at this point.
- Puck Pedia: “The #Flyers had $43K Cap Space when they placed Hayes ($7.142M) on LTIR, giving them an LTIR pool & ability to exceed cap of $7.1M. After claiming MacEwen on waivers, have $6.3M Cap Space in LTIR Pool w/ 21 players (13F/6D/2G) + Morin IR.”
Sheng Peng: San Jose Sharks Jeffrey Viel will be out for at least a month with a finger injury.
Joe Smith: Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Zach Bogosian didn’t practice yesterday and there wasn’t an update. If he can’t go tonight, they may only have five defensemen. The Lightning don’t have any salary cap space to recall anyone unless they put someone on the LTIR.
