10/17/2017 Matt Hunwick, Pit, D
The Penguins have placed Hunwick (undisclosed) on injured reserve.

Analysis: It's unclear if the defenseman was hurt in Saturday's game against Florida or in a subsequent practice. Either way, Hunwick likely will be out through Pittsburgh's three-game road trip that begins Tuesday in New York. The 32-year-old had one goal through the Penguins' first six games.
10/17/2017 Yannick Weber, Nsh, D
The Preds placed Weber on IR.

Analysis: Weber, who is nursing an upper-body injury, has recorded four penalty minutes while failing to notch a point in four games this season
10/17/2017 Frederick Gaudreau, Nsh, C
The Nashville Predators recalled Gaudreau from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League

Analysis: Gaudreau made a splash during the postseason last spring, becoming the first player since Chicago's John Harms in 1944 to score the first three goals (regular season and playoffs) of his NHL career in the Stanley Cup Final. He had an assist during his previous nine regular-season games in 2016-17 with Nashville.
10/16/2017 Tyler Johnson, TB, C
Johnson scored in his second straight game Monday at Detroit.

Analysis: Johnson's goal tied him with Ryan Malone (92) for the 10th spot on the Lightning's all-time goals list.
10/16/2017 Justin Abdelkader, Det, LW
Abdelkader was a bright spot with a goal and an assist Monday in a 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Analysis: He has three points in his last two games after tallying one in his first four. Abdelkader was the first Detroit player to score on a penalty shot since Valtteri Filppula on Dec. 15, 2007.
10/16/2017 Steven Stamkos, TB, C
Stamkos picked up a pair of assists in Monday's 3-2 win at Detroit.

Analysis: Stamkos has a goal and eight assists during a six-game point streak. He ranks among the league leaders with those nine points.
10/16/2017 Andrei Vasilevskiy, TB, G
Vasilevskiy stopped 29 of 31 shots in Monday's 3-2 win at Detroit.

Analysis: Vasilevskiy has posted a 2.48 goals-against average during a four-start win streak.
10/16/2017 Nikita Kucherov, TB, RW
Kucherov continued his blazing start with two more goals Monday in a 3-2 win at Detroit.

Analysis: Kucherov has scored a goal in all six games this season and ranks second in the NHL with seven, two behind Alex Ovechkin. Kucherov is the first player to score in his first six games of the season since Keith Tkachuk of the St. Louis Blues in 2008-09.
10/16/2017 John Gibson, Anh, G
Gibson stopped 28 of 30 shots in the Ducks' 3-1 loss to the Sabres on Sunday night.

Analysis: Gibson has a .941 save percentage over his last four starts but only one win to show for it.
10/16/2017 Johan Larsson, Buf, C
Larsson had a goal and an assist as the Sabres beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Sunday night for Phil Housley's first victory as an NHL coach.

Analysis: These were Larsson's first point of the season after producing nothing in the Sabres' first five losses.
10/16/2017 Chad Johnson, Buf, G
Johnson made 25 saves and the Sabres beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Sunday night for Phil Housley's first victory as an NHL coach.

Analysis: Johnson bounced back nicely from his only other start, when he allowed six goals in a loss to the Devils last week.
10/16/2017 Tuukka Rask, Bos, G
Rask made 23 saves on 25 shots in the Bruins' 3-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Sunday.

Analysis: This was Rask's best performance yet after three starts with a sub-.900 save percentage.
10/16/2017 Alex Tuch, VGK, RW
Tuch had a goal and an assist in his Vegas debut, a 3-1 win over the Bruins on Sunday.

Analysis: Tuch didn't put up a point in his only six career games before this, with the Wild, but perhaps the former first-rounder will get it going in Vegas.
10/16/2017 Mathieu Perreault, Wpg, C
Perrault is expected to miss around four weeks with a lower-body injury he sustained Saturday.

Analysis: Perreault exited in the third period of the Jets' 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes and was subsequently placed on injured reserve. The 29-year-old has one goal, two assists and four penalty minutes in five games this season.
10/16/2017 Vadim Shipachyov, VGK, C
Shipachyov scored a goal in his NHL debut, a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Analysis: Earlier last week, there were rumors swirling that Shipachyov was unhappy with his situation in the AHL and wanted to find a way to return to te KHL if given an opportunity. Perhaps a crack at the NHL level will keep him satisfied.
10/16/2017 James Neal, VGK, LW
Neal had his four-game scoring streak brought to a halt in Sunday's 3-1 win over Boston after scoring six goals in the franchise's first four contests.

Analysis: Neal's still a great fantasy bet on a team with little offensive skill. He can't score every game.
10/16/2017 Malcolm Subban, VGK, G
Subban stopped 21 shots for the win against his former team as the Golden Knights beat the Bruins 3-1 on Sunday.

Analysis: Subban, who was claimed off waivers Oct. 3 from the Bruins, got the nod when No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day. He spent most of his time in Providence, where he played in 127 minor league games over four seasons. His best year statistically was the 2014-15 season, when he finished with a .921 save percentage. In his only two previous NHL starts, Subban had a .727 save percentage for the Bruins.
10/16/2017 Jaroslav Halak, NYI, G
Halak had 24 saves on 27 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

Analysis: Halak has allowed three goals in each of his three starts and has a .895 save percentage in those games while Thomas Greiss has stopped 73 of 76 shots in his last two starts for a .961 save percentage.
10/16/2017 Casey Cizikas, NYI, C
Cizikas had a goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

Analysis: Cizikas' has his first goal since scoring twice against the Sabres on Oct. 7. The Islanders next play the rival Rangers on Thursday for the first time this season at Madison Square Garden, and in 22 career games against the Rangers Cizikas has just one goal and five assists.
10/16/2017 Josh Bailey, NYI, RW
Bailey had a goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

Analysis: Through six games, Bailey hasn't had many scoring opportunities, firing just seven shots on goal. He averaged 2.1 shots in 82 games last season.
