  • Trevor Zegras ANA C
    Ducks' Trevor Zegras: Needs additional imaging
    3h ago

    Zegras (upper body) will undergo another MRI on Saturday, Lisa Dillman of The Orange County Register reports.

    The Ducks want to get an additional look after reviewing his first MRI results. Zegras' absence is a significant one, as he's expected to center the first line to begin the season, though that may now be in doubt if the additional tests reveal damage that will cause him to miss regular-season action.

    Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: Back on the ice
    8h ago

    Arvidsson (back) skated in a non-contact jersey Friday, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Arvidsson still has to get through some practices as a full participant before he'll be ready for game action but it's certainly a step in the right direction. The 29-year-old had back surgery in May and could be ready for the start of the regular season. He scored 20 goals and 49 points through 66 games last year in his first season as a King.

  • Jonathan Drouin MON C
    Canadiens' Jonathan Drouin: Preseason debut Saturday
    8h ago

    Drouin (wrist) was expected to play Wednesday's 3-0 preseason loss to Toronto but was sidelined due to illness, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. He also missed Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.

    At last report, the target date for Drouin's return to game action was around the season opener, but instead, he'll play Saturday in Ottawa. The 27-year-old forward, who hasn't played a full season since 2018-19, was limited to 34 games last year before undergoing wrist surgery but had his best scoring pace (20 points in 34 games) since joining Montreal. Drouin enters the final year of a six-year deal and should be motivated by pending free agency.

    Predators' Juuse Saros: Starting Friday
    8h ago

    Saros (ankle) is starting Friday's preseason tilt against the Lightning.

    Saros was eased into camp after an ankle injury kept him out of 2022 postseason. The 27-year-old posted a .918 save percentage and a 2.64 GAA through 67 games last season and should handle a bulk of the goaltending duties in Nashville again during the 2022-23 campaign. However, fatigue may have caught up to him last year; Saros registered a 3.04 GAA and a .905 save percentage in 29 games after the All-Star break.
