On the Anaheim Ducks …

Eric Stephens: Coach Randy Carlyle said there is no timetable set for Ryan Getzlaf (fractured cheekbone) and Ryan Kesler (hip) yet. Both are skating and progressing.

Eric Stephens: Ducks put defenseman Hampus Lindholm on the IR, so he’ll at least miss Friday’s game.

On the Calgary Flames …

Chris Johnston: Forward Jaromir Jagr missed last night’s game and is day-to-day.

Jeff Veillette: Forward Matthew Tkachuk spearing Matt Martin from the bench.

On the Colorado Avalanche …

Colorado Avalanche: The Avs reassigned forward Rocco Grimaldi to the AHL.

On the Edmonton Oilers …

Jack Michaels: The timeline for defenseman Andrej Sekera‘s return still remains around New Year’s. Defenseman Adam Larsson is questionable for their upcoming road trip.

On the Los Angeles Kings …

Curtis Zupke: Forward Andy Andreoff is “getting close” according to coach John Stevens. Forward Kyle Clifford said there is one more hurdle that he needs to clear before he’ll be available.

On the San Jose Sharks …

Curtis Pashelka: Defenseman Paul Martin on his potential return today: “I think that was kind of the plan. Once we get off the road trip to come off IR and to go from there. I’m not 100% sure yet, but I’d like to think so.”

On the Vancouver Canucks …

Jay Janower: Forward Bo Horvat was to have an MRI to determine the severity of his injury. It’s not known yet how much time he’ll miss.

Patrick Johnston: With goaltender Thatcher Demko and forward Michael Chaput recalled … Chaput is likely to cover injured Bo Horvat and Demko is likely to maximize the cap space with Derek Dorsett‘s LTIR.

On the Vegas Golden Knights …

Jesse Granger: Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury on his return to practice:

“It was great being back on the ice with my teammates for a full practice today. I am hopeful that I can join the team for game action soon. We have been playing well & I am looking forward to getting back & doing what I can to help the team win.”
