On Marc-Andre Fleury …

Vegas Golden Knights: Marc-Andre Fleury becomes the 13th NHL goalie to win 400 games.

On the Calgary Flames …

Kristen Anderson: Sounding like Matthew Tkachuk could miss tonight’s game.

On the Carolina Hurricanes …

Carolina Hurricanes: The Hurricanes reassign Valentin Zykov to the AHL.

On the Dallas Stars …

Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: Goaltender Ben Bishop has missed the last three games with a knee injury.

“We’re not far away,” head coach Ken Hitchcock said.

There is no timeline for his return yet.

On the Winnipeg Jets …

Ken Wiebe: Forward Mark Scheifele was on the ice in a no-contact jersey. Coach Paul Maurice said that he’s “feeling much better, which is a positive.” Scheifele won’t be an option during their road trip. They are being really cautious with him.

“Right and that would be more my call. Clearly, he’s not in full contact, so he’s not ready to play. We do not want a re-occurrence, so we’ll be real patient with this one.”

Ken Wiebe: Defenseman Toby Enstrom is improving and could be in the lineup against the Predators. Defenseman Jacob Trouba could be an option when they return home from their road trip, but a timetable is not official.

Ken Wiebe: Maurice didn’t give an update on Matt Hendricks, but they don’t expect him to be in the lineup tonight.
