    Lightning's Gabriel Fortier: Signs one-year deal
    7h ago

    Fortier signed a one-year, two-way contract with Tampa Bay on Monday.

    Fortier generated 13 goals and 26 points in 62 regular-season contests for AHL Syracuse in 2023-24. He also added one goal and four assists in eight minor-league playoff outings. The 24-year-old forward is likely to spend most, if not all, of the 2024-25 campaign in the AHL.

    Flyers' Adam Ginning: Inks two-year contract
    7h ago

    Ginning signed a two-year, two-way/one-way contract extension with Philadelphia on Monday.

    Ginning's new agreement will carry an average annual value of $787,500 and will ensure he gets paid like an NHLer in Year 2 of the deal. The 24-year-old blueliner had one goal, six shots on net, nine blocked shots and 18 hits in nine appearances with the Flyers during the 2023-24 campaign. He also earned two goals, 15 points and 82 PIM across 58 regular-season outings for AHL Lehigh Valley. Ginning will probably start the 2024-25 season in the minors.

    Blues' Nick Leddy: Plays big minutes
    22h ago

    Leddy posted three goals and 25 assists across 82 games during the 2023-24 season.

    Leddy also added a career-high 127 blocked shots while averaging 22:22 of ice time. The 33-year-old has proven he can eat big minutes on the blue line, but his lack of power-play minutes over two seasons with the Blues has limited his fantasy upside.

    Blues' Tyler Tucker: Two points in second season
    22h ago

    Tucker posted a goal and an assist across 26 games during the 2023-24 season.

    Tucker played exactly 26 games for the second consecutive season but averaged just 12:27 of ice time while firing 42 shots on net. He showed some promise as a third-pairing defenseman, but he's at risk of spending next season in the minors if the Blues sign an established blueliner in free agency.

    Oilers' Evander Kane: Possible for Game 5
    1d ago

    Kane (abdomen) is a possibility for Game 5 against Florida on Tuesday, per Tracey Myers of NHL.com.

    Kane will travel with the Oilers to Florida, and the team will evaluate his health ahead of Tuesday's contest. The 32-year-old forward has missed the last two games due to a sports hernia. Kane has generated four goals, four assists, 44 shots on net, 37 PIM and 64 hits in 20 outings this postseason.

    Oilers' Zach Hyman: Dishes pair of helpers
    2d ago

    Hyman notched two assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Hyman helped out on second-period tallies by Connor McDavid and Darnell Nurse. The 32-year-old Hyman didn't have a point during the Stanley Cup Finals, as the Panthers had neutralized the Oilers' top players in the first three contests. However, they were all much better in Saturday's blowout victory. Hyman is up to 20 points, 84 shots on net, 47 hits and a plus-9 rating over 22 playoff outings. If the Oilers can gain traction on the power play, he should see an uptick in offense.

    Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Supplies pair of assists
    2d ago

    Draisaitl notched two assists, three shots on goal and two hits in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Draisaitl hadn't had much success in the Stanley Cup Finals before Saturday's matchup. He'd been held off the scoresheet for three straight contests before he broke through in Game 4. The 28-year-old is up to 30 points (15 on the power play) with 69 shots on net, 23 hits, 15 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating over 22 playoff appearances. Draisaitl rarely goes cold in the postseason, and if the Oilers are going to come back in the series, he'll likely be a big part of that.

    Oilers' Ryan McLeod: Adds insurance marker
    2d ago

    McLeod scored a goal and added two hits in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    McLeod tacked on a goal late in the third period. He's scored in consecutive contests for the first time since December. Through 21 playoff outings, the 24-year-old has just three goals with 22 shots on net, 26 hits and a minus-5 rating. Given his lack of production, it's no surprise he remains in a bottom-six role with minimal power-play time.

    Oilers' Adam Henrique: Lights lamp in Game 4
    2d ago

    Henrique scored a goal, doled out five hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Henrique's tally at 7:48 of the first period ended up being the game-winner in the blowout. The 34-year-old has a point in each of the last two contests, and he's up to six points, nine shots on net, 48 hits and a plus-1 rating through 14 playoff outings. Henrique is likely to remain in a third-line role for the remainder of the Stanley Cup Finals, as head coach Kris Knoblauch likely won't adjust the lineup much if the Oilers keep winning.

    Oilers' Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: Tallies on power play
    2d ago

    Nugent-Hopkins scored a power-play goal on four shots, added three hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Nugent-Hopkins is reliant on power-play production, so it's no surprise he's been less effective in the later rounds with the Oilers' power play struggling. He has three goals and two assists over his last 10 contests, and his tally Saturday snapped a four-game slump. Overall, the 31-year-old has put up 21 points, 31 shots, 41 hits and a minus-1 rating over 22 playoff appearances.

    2d ago

    Janmark scored a shorthanded goal, logged an assist, added two PIM and went plus-3 in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    Janmark made his impact early Saturday, scoring the opening goal and setting up Adam Henrique on the Oilers' second tally. Prior to Saturday, Janmark had gone without a point in his previous five games. The winger contributed three goals, three assists, 18 shots on net, 20 hits and a plus-3 rating over 22 playoff contests in a bottom-six role.

    Tarasenko scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 8-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 4.

    Tarasenko's goal in the first period pulled the Panthers within one, but they were unable to build on it as the Oilers ran away with the game. The winger has three goals and an assist over his last five contests, a rare run of consistency for him this postseason. Overall, he's at nine points, 40 shots, 41 hits and a plus-5 rating through 21 playoff outings.

The feisty winger has four goals, four assists, 37 PIM and 64 hits in 20 appearances this postseason. Warren Foegele is slated to occupy a spot in the top-six group should Kane be unavailable to play.

    Nurse scored a goal on six shots, blocked five shots, added four PIM and went plus-3 in Saturday's 8-1 win over the Panthers in Game 4.

    There's been little to like from Nurse's game this postseason, but he was at his best, aside from the penalties, in Saturday's big win. The defenseman has just five points through 22 playoff contests, and he's still at a minus-11 rating. He's remained a physical force on the blue line with 46 hits and 55 blocks.

Kulak remains in a third-pairing role and isn't overly physical, but he's been steady for an Oilers defense that has become tumultuous in the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Panthers' Anthony Stolarz: Makes playoff debut
    2d ago

    Stolarz allowed three goals on 19 shots in relief of Sergei Bobrovsky in Saturday's 8-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 4.

    Few goalies in the world could have stopped a desperate Oilers squad in Saturday's contest. Stolarz had never played in an NHL playoff game, and it was nearly two months to the day since he last drew into a game, as Bobrovsky had played every minute of the Panthers' postseason run. Head coach Paul Maurice will likely go back to Bobrovsky for Game 5 on Tuesday, so Stolarz is unlikely to play again unless Bobrovsky continues to struggle or suffers an injury.

    Bobrovsky was pulled early in the second period after his worst game of the series so far. He's had one dud in each round, and the Panthers will hope that getting some time to clear his head Saturday will put him on track to bounce back in Game 5 on Tuesday. Bobrovsky saw a six-game winning streak come to an end, but the Panthers will have up to three more chances to secure the Stanley Cup.

Despite this solid performance, Skinner has given up 10 goals over four contests in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Oilers are down 3-1 in the series and face a steep challenge, but the 25-year-old will probably be between the pipes the rest of the way.
