    [B][I]NHL notebook: Ducks captain Getzlaf could be out 2 months
    November 7, 2017[/I][/B]

    Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf will be sidelined for as long as two months following surgery to repair his fractured cheekbone on Tuesday.

    Getzlaf sustained the injury after taking an errant puck to the face following a deflected shot from Sebastian Aho during an Oct. 29 game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

    Getzlaf, who had already missed eight games due to multiple injuries, has one goal and six assists in six games this season. The forward has recorded 237 goals, 584 assists and 736 penalty minutes in 867 career contests since being selected by Anaheim with the 19th overall pick of the 2003 draft.

    [B]–St. Louis Blues[/B] forward Robby Fabbri underwent successful surgery on his left knee, the second knee operation in the past year for the 21-year-old pivot. There is no timetable for Fabbri’s return at this time.

    Fabbri originally tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Feb. 4, and he had surgery three weeks later. Fabbri then re-injured his knee during training camp.

    In 123 career regular-season games with the Blues, Fabbri, a first-round pick of the Blues in 2014, has 29 goals, 37 assists and 52 penalty minutes.

    [B]–Calgary Flames[/B] forward Jaromir Jagr returned to the ice vs. the Vancouver Canucks.

    Jagr has two assists in five games since signing as a free agent with Calgary at the end of training camp. The Flames are Jagr’s ninth NHL team.

    The Flames assigned fellow forward Tanner Glass to AHL Stockton. Glass did not notch a point and recorded five penalty minutes in seven games this season with the Flames.

    [B]–The Columbus Blue Jackets[/B] activated right winger Cam Atkinson off injured reserve.

    Atkinson, who set career highs in goals (35), assists (27), points (62) and rating (plus-13) last season.

    The 28-year-old Connecticut native has been sidelined with a lower-body injury sustained in an Oct. 28 game against the St. Louis Blues.

    [B]–The Pittsburgh Penguins [/B]activated defenseman Justin Schultz from injured reserve and re-assigned defenseman Zach Trotman to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    Schultz had been on injured reserve with a concussion since Oct. 27. He was in the lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes, scoring the first goal of the game in the first minute of the game. Schultz, who missed the past six games with a concussion, has two goals and two assists in 11 games this season.

    Trotman appeared in three games for the Penguins.

    [B]–The Arizona Coyotes[/B] recalled forward Michael Sislo from Tucson and assigned goaltender Louis Domingue to the AHL affiliate.

    Sislo collected four goals, two assists and 10 penalty minutes in nine games with the Roadrunners this season. The 29-year-old Sislo recorded three goals, two assists and six penalty minutes in 42 career NHL contests with the New Jersey Devils.

    Domingue, 25, has posted a career record of 27-41-7 with two shutouts, a .906 save percentage and 3.00 goals-against average in 84 career games with the Coyotes.

    [B]–The Buffalo Sabres [/B]recalled defenseman Zach Redmond from AHL Rochester and placed forward Justin Bailey on injured reserve.

    This is Redmond’s second stint with the Sabres this season after appearing in two games following a recall on Oct. 21. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Redmond has recorded one goal and four assists in seven contests this season with the Americans of the AHL. Redmond has collected nine goals, 29 assists and a plus-10 rating in 132 career games with the Montreal Canadiens, Colorado Avalanche, Winnipeg Jets and Sabres since being selected in the seventh round of the 2008 draft by the Atlanta Thrashers.

    The 22-year-old Bailey, who is nursing an undisclosed injury, has two goals and an assist in seven games this season with Buffalo.
    [B]
    –The Florida Panthers[/B] recalled forward Chase Balisy from AHL Springfield.

    Balisy has appeared in three games with Florida this season, including his first NHL contest on Oct. 28 against the Detroit Red Wings. The 25-year-old native of Fullerton, Calif., has posted four points (two goals, two assists) in 10 games with the Thunderbirds.

    [B][I]Wednesday’s six-pack[/I][/B]

    Odds to win the college football national title

    — Alabama 2-3

    — Georgia 5-1

    — Clemson 7-1

    — Notre Dame 10-1

    — Ohio State 12-1

    — Wisconsin 16-1

    ************************

    [B][I]Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings……[/I][/B]

    13) UCLA plays Georgia Tech in basketball Friday night in China. Tuesday, three freshman on UCLA’s team were busted for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in Shanghai.

    Was reading some stuff on the Interweb about this; the Chinese system is different from ours- these three nitwits could get 3-10 years in prison for shoplifting. There is no guarantee they’ll be back in the United States anytime soon- the Chinese justice system is slower, they don’t offer bail the way we do.

    Donald Trump is going to be in China later this week; now there are worlds colliding, Trump and LaVar Ball in China at the same time, with Ball’s son in dire need of some legal aid.

    Put that on your reality show.

    12) The Andrew Luck situation in Indianapolis is becoming a huge mess, as Colts owner Jim Irsay is apparently questioning Luck in private conversations, saying Luck’s injury is “in his head.” Terrific.

    Luck first hurt his shoulder in 2015; now he won’t play until next summer, at the earliest.

    11) Suns traded Eric Bledsoe to Milwaukee, for Greg Monroe and protected 2018 1st/2nd-round picks. Monroe’s contract is up after this season, so that becomes valuable salary cap space.

    10) Detroit Lions didn’t punt in Monday night’s win in Green Bay, the first time Detroit didn’t punt in a game since……..1971.

    9) Interesting bit of knowledge from Aaron Rodgers Monday night; he says if you get a broken bone x-rayed a lot to check on progress of healing, the radiation actually slows down the bone’s healing, so Green Bay doctors will not be doing that with Rodgers’ clavicle this time around.

    8) Green Bay lost RT Bryan Bulaga with a torn ACL in Monday’s loss, as their season crumbles even further……..if I coached the Packers, we’d go no-huddle with Brett Hundley. He looked a lot more comfortable playing at a faster pace.

    7) Omri Casspi has played in 507 career NBA games, scoring 8.2 ppg thanks largely to a 36.8% mark from 3-point range; this is his 9th season, but he has never been on a team that made the playoffs. That changes soon; Casspi is on the Warriors this season.

    6) Houston Texans signed QB Josh Johnson to be their #3 QB, and waived Matt McGloin.

    5) Former Mets’ pitching coach Dan Warthen has moved on to the same job with the Texas Rangers.

    4) Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf broke his cheekbone, will be out for a couple of months. He got hit in the face with a puck and broke his cheekbone- it hurts me just to type that.

    3) Alabama had one basketball player declared ineligible this week; another one had his knee scoped. Going to take some time in November to get a handle on who is and isn’t eligible, with all the off-court nonsense going on.

    One of the non-basketball people scheduled to be indicted in SneakerGate won’t be indicted this week, meaning he could be cooperating with authorities, which means more heads could roll, and more players could be declared ineligible.

    2) Charlotte’s Malik Monk is 19 years old; he scored 8.8 ppg in 21.3 mpg in his first 10 NBA games. Tuesday night in New York, he scored 21 points in 27 minutes in the Hornets’ highly entertaining 118-113 loss to the Knicks. Monk looks like he will be an elite scorer.

    1) RIP to the great big league pitcher Roy Halladay 40, who passed away Tuesday in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico. Halladay will likely get elected to the Hall of Fame in 2019. He was 203-105, 3.38 in 16 big league seasons, with the Blue Jays/Phillies.

    Halladay and Don Larsen threw the only two postseason no-hitters.

    November 8, 2017[/I][/B]
    [B]
    STREAKY TEAMS

    Wins and Losses Streak Over/Under Streak[/B]

    Florida 0-3-1-1 past five games overall Colorado Over 7-0-0 past seven overall
    Montreal 5-1-0 past six games overall N.Y. Islanders Over 8-1-0 past nine overall
    St. Louis 8-2-0 past 10 games overall San Jose Under 6-0-0 past six overall

    [B]Sharky’s Machine[/B]

    The San Jose Sharks have been a machine lately…a machine for ‘under’ results, that is. They have pumped out six consecutive ‘under’ results in a row, a streak which will be tested when the Tampa Bay Lightning come calling on Wednesday evening. While the ‘under’ is 3-2 over Tampa Bay’s past five outings overall, they’re averaging 4.33 goals per game away from home this season. The good news is that the ‘under’ has connected in Tampa’s only two games against Western Conference foes so far. However, the ‘over’ is 6-1 inthe past seven meetings at SAP Center in San Jose, and 10-3 in the past 13 meetings overall.
    [B]
    Not a Wild Ride[/B]

    The Minnesota Wild have stumbled out of the chute this season, failing to piece together a win or unbeaten streak of more than two games. The good news is that they have lost in regulation in back-to-back games just once, and they haven’t incurred a three-game losing streak all season. They limp into Wednesday’s game on a two-game slide, so if trends continue, they’ll win in Toronto. And hey, they are a perfect 7-0 in their past seven meetings with the Maple Leafs. Bettors looking for a nice parlay might want to thump the ‘under’, too, which is 5-0 in the past five meetings at Air Canada Centre, and 10-1 in the past 11 meetings overall in this series.

    [B]Wednesday, November 8[/B]

    It’s a light slate on Wednesday, with just three games, and we touched on two of the games already. The nationally-televised game is a Battle of Original Six squads, and one team is struggling while the other is heating up.

    Boston has won 13 of their past 17 against teams with a losing record, but they’re just 5-14 in their past 19 games against Metropolitan Division foes. In addition, they’re a dismal 1-6 in their past seven tries on one day of rest, 0-8 in their past eight following a win and a poor 0-4 in their past four tries against Eastern Conference opponents. Conversely, the Rangers have started to come alive after a brutal start. The Blueshirts have won four in a row overall, four of their past five games at Madison Square Garden and they have taken five in a row against the B’s. The home team has cashed in seven of the past nine in this series, with the Bruins going a horrendous 7-19 in their past 26 skates at MSG. The ‘over’ is 3-1-1 in the past five meetings in Manhattan, and 5-2-1 in the past eight meetings overall in this series.

    [B]Thursday, November 9[/B]

    Two teams playing their fourth game in six days will square off at Bell Centre on Thursday when the Wild battle Les Habitants. The Wild have won four in a row in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation, but the Habs have also excelled in the role. They’re 5-2 in their past seven tries in the fourth game of a 4-in-6. And for what it’s worth, Minnesota has crushed it on Thursdays, going 17-5 in their past 22 showings on the day. They have also crushed it against the Habs, winning six in a row in this series, although the home team has won eight of the past 10 in this series. Total bettors will like the fact the ‘over’ is 3-0-2 in the past five meetings in Montreal, and 3-0-1 in the past four overall in the series.

    The team with the most points in the Western Conference (as of Wednesday AM) takes on the team with the worst record in the NHL, so if you plan to bet the favorite I hope you’re hungry for a ton of chalk. The Coyotes have been brutal this season, and they’re not very good in the third game in four days, either, dropping four in a row in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation. The Blues have been tremendous, winning eight of their past nine at home, while excelling in five of their past six against Western Conference foes. And as you might expect, St. Louis has had their way with Arizona, winning five straight home meetings, and 24 of the past 31 overall in the series.

    [B]Friday, November 10[/B]

    The Bruins and Maple Leafs renew acquaintances in Toronto on Friday night, and the Buds look to maintain their dominance against the B’s after years of struggles. Last season Toronto turned the tables on Boston, sweeping the regular season series 4-0, outscoring the Bruins 18-9. That was a stark contrast to the year before when Boston polished off Toronto in four of the five meetings. For years the B’s dominated this series, and they even took a playoff series from Toronto as well. While Toronto has been much better this season and the last, lately they have struggled with the home cooking. They haven’t won in regulation at home in three tries, going 1-2-0-0.

    The Islanders skate in the Metroplex on Friday night in what could be a very entertaining game. As of Wednesday morning, the Isles were an impressive 3-0-1 in their past four tries against Western Conference foes, and they have lit the lamp three or more times in eight of their past nine outings. The Stars, on the other hand, have been all over the board. They have scored two or fewer goals in four of their past five outings, but also allowed exactly one goal in three of the past five. The ‘under’ is 3-1-1 across their past five after a 4-0 over streak. Inconsistency has been the rule for Dallas, a team that entered the season with legitimate Stanley Cup aspirations.

    [B]Saturday, November 11[/B]

    The Avalanche and Senators will do battle in matinee action (1:00 p.m. ET) in Canada’s capital city. That’s 11:00 a.m. MT, so obviously a very early start for the visitors. Matinee games usually see some tired legs in the beginning, and an ‘under’ result can follow. This one will be interesting, too, as the Avalanche just traded disgrunted Matt Duchene to Ottawa in a three-way deal involving the Predators. So he’ll get a chance to skate against his former club, so that’s a storyline to watch, too.

    The Canadiens welcome the Sabres to Bell Centre, as Buffalo looks to avenge an Opening Night shootout loss back on Oct. 5. In that game in Buffalo, Phillip Danault scored a shorthanded goal at 8:01 of the third period to force overtime, stunning the Sabres who appeared to have control of the game from the get-go. Robin Lehner was unable to steer the team to a victory, falling in the shootout in a game which was a huge disappointment. A close game is par for the course between these rivals, as three of the past four have been decided by one goal.

    [B][I]Best and Worst Bets
    November 8, 2017[/I][/B]

    [B]BEST NHL BETS[/B]

    As usual, don’t overthink these ones. You might take a hit here and there, but overall, these teams will pay you back handsomely.

    [B]Nashville Predators[/B]

    There’s a lot to love here. The Predators are on a three-game winning streak on the road, and return home where they’ve only lost two games so far this year. They have some great matchups which will reduce the value of the line against them as well. Home stands against a reeling Pittsburgh team and a Washington squad that’s being outscored at a rabid pace. Bet away.

    Next Games: vs. Pittsburgh (11/11), vs. Washington (11/14)
    [B]
    New Jersey Devils [/B]

    The streaking New Jersey Devils are stuck in the gutter right now with a three-game losing skid that has many scurrying away. Not so fast. They have a terrific slate over the next three games which includes pretty bad teams. They host the wobbly Oilers and the downtrodden Panthers before packing up ship and heading to Chicago next week. All three of those teams have leaky defences, and the Devils are still one of the best scoring teams in the NHL. Business is about to pick up for the Devils so hop on board.

    Next Games: vs. Edmonton (11/9), vs. Florida (11/10, at Chicago (11/12)

    [B]St. Louis Blues[/B]

    By consensus the Blues are currently the best team in the league, and that’s going to heavily inflate their moneylines. Fortunately, the Blues are also dynamite against the puckline with a league leading 12-4 ATS record. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but the Blues also have an absolutely tempting chunk of schedule coming up. Most times the moneyline is the easier way to bet on NHL hockey, but with the Blues the only way to get value is by taking the spread. In their last four wins, they’ve averaged a +2.25 scoring differential over a 4-1 SU streak.

    Next Gams: vs. Arizona (11/9), vs. NYI (11/11), at Calgary (11/13)

    [B]WAIT AND SEE[/B]

    These are the teams that are either worth betting through the weekend or are important stay-away plays. You never know what kind of momentum crops up and a lot of that depends on how they fare in Wednesday’s slate.

    [B]Toronto Maple Leafs [/B]

    The Leafs began as the league’s top team with a 7-1 SU outburst that has leveled off tremendously in recent weeks. Since then, the young Maple Leafs have fallen to just 3-6 SU in their last 9 games. A lot of it is that goalie Frederik Andersen has faced more high-quality shots than any other netminder in the league this year. The NHL has a metric for this called “high-danger shots”, and Andersen has seen 58 this year, letting in 11. Until Toronto can better protect their goalie’s sanity, they’re better to steer clear from despite an inviting schedule.

    Next Games: vs. Minnesota (11/8), vs. Boston (11/10), at Boston (11/11)

    [B]San Jose Sharks[/B]

    The Sharks are riding a beautiful four-game win streak heading in to tonight’s clash against the Tampa Bay Lightning, which will set up their momentum for matchups against the Canucks and Kings, who have also been riding pretty high. The Sharks are either going to see their streak continue by beating the Lightning tonight, or they’re a stay-away team until further notice. It’s probably going to be the latter to be honest, which also makes them a bet-against property for most.

    Next Games: vs. Tampa (11/8), vs. Vancouver (11/11), at Los Angeles (11/12)

    [B]WORST NHL BETS[/B]

    Just don’t bother until further notice.

    [B]Chicago Blackhawks
    [/B]
    By far one of the bigger public teams based on roster strength and name value alone, the Chicago Blackhawks have been dismal all season long. They’re just 7-6-2 on the season and are a brutal 7-8 ATS as well. The major problem is that you never know when to expect a good product from them. They recently shutout Philly and Minnesota in back-to-back efforts but lost three games prior to that and just got shutout by Montreal, arguably the worst team in the league. They’re worse than a bet-against feature. They’re a complete stay-away because of how volatile their performances seem to be.

    Next Games: at Philadelphia (11/9), at Carolina (11/11) vs. New Jersey (11/12), vs. NYR (11/15)

    [B]Pittsburgh Penguins[/B]

    This is as friendly of a reminder as I can give that the Pittsburgh Penguins simply aren’t worth investing your time and money in to right now. They’re a terrific 5-0-1 at home this season, but have been all over the map in terms of consistency, and are travelling this weekend. Their -1.1 goal differential is one of the biggest shockers of the 2017-18 NHL season so far. Until they show some measure of stability, you can’t trust them.

    Next Games: at Washington (11/10), at Nashville (11/11), vs. Buffalo

    **********

    [SIZE=”4″][COLOR=”#A52A2A”][B]Armadillo: Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…… [/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    13) UCLA plays Georgia Tech in basketball Friday night in China. Tuesday, three freshman on UCLA’s team were busted for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in Shanghai.

    Was reading some stuff on the Interweb about this; the Chinese system is different from ours- these three nitwits could get 3-10 years in prison for shoplifting. There is no guarantee they’ll be back in the United States anytime soon- the Chinese justice system is slower, they don’t offer bail the way we do.

    Donald Trump is going to be in China later this week; now there are worlds colliding, Trump and LaVar Ball in China at the same time, with Ball’s son in dire need of some legal aid.

    Put that on your reality show.

    12) The Andrew Luck situation in Indianapolis is becoming a huge mess, as Colts owner Jim Irsay is apparently questioning Luck in private conversations, saying Luck’s injury is “in his head.” Terrific.

    Luck first hurt his shoulder in 2015; now he won’t play until next summer, at the earliest.

    11) Suns traded Eric Bledsoe to Milwaukee, for Greg Monroe and protected 2018 1st/2nd-round picks. Monroe’s contract is up after this season, so that becomes valuable salary cap space.

    10) Detroit Lions didn’t punt in Monday night’s win in Green Bay, the first time Detroit didn’t punt in a game since……..1971.

    9) Interesting bit of knowledge from Aaron Rodgers Monday night; he says if you get a broken bone x-rayed a lot to check on progress of healing, the radiation actually slows down the bone’s healing, so Green Bay doctors will not be doing that with Rodgers’ clavicle this time around.

    8) Green Bay lost RT Bryan Bulaga with a torn ACL in Monday’s loss, as their season crumbles even further……..if I coached the Packers, we’d go no-huddle with Brett Hundley. He looked a lot more comfortable playing at a faster pace.

    7) Omri Casspi has played in 507 career NBA games, scoring 8.2 ppg thanks largely to a 36.8% mark from 3-point range; this is his 9th season, but he has never been on a team that made the playoffs. That changes soon; Casspi is on the Warriors this season.

    6) Houston Texans signed QB Josh Johnson to be their #3 QB, and waived Matt McGloin.

    5) Former Mets’ pitching coach Dan Warthen has moved on to the same job with the Texas Rangers.

    4) Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf broke his cheekbone, will be out for a couple of months. He got hit in the face with a puck and broke his cheekbone- it hurts me just to type that.

    3) Alabama had one basketball player declared ineligible this week; another one had his knee scoped. Going to take some time in November to get a handle on who is and isn’t eligible, with all the off-court nonsense going on.

    One of the non-basketball people scheduled to be indicted in SneakerGate won’t be indicted this week, meaning he could be cooperating with authorities, which means more heads could roll, and more players could be declared ineligible.

    2) Charlotte’s Malik Monk is 19 years old; he scored 8.8 ppg in 21.3 mpg in his first 10 NBA games. Tuesday night in New York, he scored 21 points in 27 minutes in the Hornets’ highly entertaining 118-113 loss to the Knicks. Monk looks like he will be an elite scorer.

    1) RIP to the great big league pitcher Roy Halladay 40, who passed away Tuesday in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico. Halladay will likely get elected to the Hall of Fame in 2019. He was 203-105, 3.38 in 16 big league seasons, with the Blue Jays/Phillies.

    Halladay and Don Larsen threw the only two postseason no-hitters.

    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    LOS ANGELES — Four Lightning players, including the red-hot Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos, had multi-point games, and Peter Budaj made 22 saves as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 on Thursday night.

    Stamkos had a goal and an assist, giving him an NHL-high 28 points, while Kucherov recorded three points, including his league-leading 16th goal. Alex Killorn, Victor Hedman and Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for Tampa Bay.

    [B]
    Oilers 3, Devils 2 (OT)[/B]

    [B]Flames 6, Red Wings 3[/B]

    CALGARY, Alberta — Johnny Gaudreau had two goals and a memorable assist to lead Calgary past road-weary Detroit.

    Gaudreau set up Jaromir Jagr’s first goal as a Flame, which was the 766th of the 45-year-old’s 24-year NHL career. Gaudreau’s second goal came into an empty net with 2:23 left. Mark Jankowski, Micheal Ferland and Matthew Tkachuk also scored for Calgary.

    Anthony Mantha had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings and set up Martin Frk and Frans Nielsen with nice passes during Detroit’s three-goal second period. Detroit wrapped up a four-game cross-Canada road trip in which it went 2-2-0.
    [B]
    Flyers 3, Blackhawks 1[/B]

    PHILADELPHIA — Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek recorded a goal and two assists apiece in Philadelphia’s victory over Chicago.

    Sean Couturier scored and Shayne Gostisbehere picked up his 100th NHL point as the Flyers extended their point streak to three games (2-0-1). Brian Elliott made 38 saves for Philadelphia.

    Connor Murphy, whose father, Gord Murphy, is an assistant coach with Philadelphia, scored for the Blackhawks. Corey Crawford made 28 stops in the loss.

    [B]Ducks 4, Canucks 1[/B]

    ANAHEIM, Calif. — Jakob Silfverberg scored goals 35 seconds apart early in the third period as Anaheim snapped a four-game slide (0-2-2).

    Hampus Lindholm and Brandon Montour also scored for the Ducks, who tallied three power-play goals after entering the game ranked 30th in the NHL on the power play at 5-for-47. Ryan Miller, who spent the last three seasons with the Canucks, made 13 saves before he was replaced by Reto Berra (six saves) late in the third period after sustaining a lower-body injury.

    Sven Baertschi scored for Vancouver, which had a four-game road winning streak snapped. Jacob Markstrom stopped 31 shots.

    [B][I]NHL notebook: Shipachyov, Golden Knights officially agree to part ways
    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    Forward Vadim Shipachyov is headed back to Russia after working out an agreement with the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday.

    [B]Golden Knights [/B]general manager George McPhee announced that the sides mutually agreed to place Shipachyov on the NHL voluntary retirement list, which will allow him to return to play in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League.

    The 30-year-old Shipachyov made history due to the deal, becoming the first player to retire as a member of the expansion Golden Knights. Vegas, which signed Shipachyov to a two-year, $9 million contract on May 4, will retain his NHL rights until age 35.

    Shipachyov scored a goal in his NHL debut against the Boston Bruins on Oct. 15. It was his only point in three games with Vegas before he was sent back to Chicago of the American Hockey League. He finished third in the KHL scoring race last season with 26 goals and 76 points in 50 games. He also had four goals and 15 assists in 17 games during the KHL playoffs.

    [B]–The New Jersey Devils[/B] activated Kyle Palmieri from injured reserve and placed fellow forward Marcus Johansson on IR.

    Palmieri is expected to return to the lineup against the visiting Edmonton Oilers on Thursday after being sidelined six games with a lower-body injury. The 26-year-old New York native, who was initially considered day-to-day, suffered the injury after sliding into the boards during a practice on Oct. 22.

    Johansson sustained a concussion just 53 seconds into a game versus the Vancouver Canucks on Nov. 1. The 27-year-old Swede was trailing Vancouver’s Brock Boeser behind the net when he appeared to stumble before falling into the boards. Johansson has three goals and two assists in 10 games this season for New Jersey, which acquired him in an offseason trade with the Washington Capitals.

    [B]–The Carolina Hurricanes[/B] activated forward Lee Stempniak from injured reserve and assigned him to Charlotte of the American Hockey League.

    The Hurricanes also sent defenseman Roland McKeown to the Checkers.

    Stempniak has been sidelined 13 games due to an upper-body injury. The 34-year-old New York native played in all 82 contests last season, recording 16 goals and 24 assists.

    McKeown has notched a pair of assists in two games this season for the Hurricanes.

    [B]–The Florida Panthers[/B] recalled forward Dryden Hunt from Springfield of the American Hockey League.

    Hunt has recorded five goals and three assists in 13 games with the Thunderbirds this season. The 21-year-old British Columbia native ranks second on the team in goals and shots (38).

    Hunt collected 31 points in 70 games last season with Springfield. He also had two goals in a two-game stint with Manchester of the ECHL.
