On the Anaheim Ducks …

Anaheim Ducks: Coach Randy Carlyle didn’t have an update on defenseman Brandon Montour after the game. Montour left in the third period. Carlyle said he was “functioning well” in the dressing room.

On the Calgary Flames …

Pat Steinberg: Coach Glen Gulutzan said that forward Kris Versteeg was getting his lower-body injury evaluated yesterday and they should know more today.

On the Colorado Avalanche …

Cap Friendly: Forward Gabriel Landeskog will forfeit $119,815.68 during his four-game suspension.

On the Dallas Stars …

Mark Stepneski: Defenseman Stephen Johns still needs clearance, but he should be ready to go tonight.

On the Los Angeles Kings …

Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider: Brooks Laich cleared waivers, and his contract was mutually terminated. When asked if there was any possibility for Laich to join their AHL  as a player or mentor capacity – if it was discussed at all, coach John Stevens said:

“I think that option was available,” Stevens said. “I think in Brooks’ case, he wanted to try and continue to play in the National Hockey Legaue. This is home for him, so I think it was kind of a win-win situation for him and for us, but I think he’s at the point in his career where I do think he has other things that he has a lot of interest in doing. He’s a very active guy, he’s a great personality, he’s a really solid guy. I don’t think at this point in his career he wants to go back to the minors and do that. I think if he wanted to, it would’ve been available to him, but I don’t think he wanted to go back to the minors at this point.”

On the Minnesota Wild …

Michael Russo: Coach Bruce Boudreau on defenseman Jared Spurgeon and is groin strain: “it’s a lower body thing. I don’t know how serious it is. Hope it’s not too serious.”

On the San Jose Sharks …

Curtis Pashelka: The Sharks aren’t saying if goaltender Martin Jones‘ injury is/was upper- or lower-body. He’s day-to-day and likely not to play tonight.

Kevin Kurz: Martin Jones: “I’m fine. Day-to-day. More precautionary than anything.”

On the Vegas Golden Knights …

Danny Webster: Coach Gerard Gallant said that William Carrier is day-to-day, but wouldn’t say what the injury is.

Sin Bin: Forward David Perron is also considered day-to-day and will be out tonight.

Vegas Golden Knights: The Golden Knights recalled forward Stefan Matteau.
