Injuries for teams playing Monday night

New York Islanders - Trent Hunter (Lower Body) Kyle Okposo (Shoulder injury and is recovering from surgery should be out until December, early January), Mark Streit (a report out of Switzerland says Streit had successful shoulder surgery and there's optimism for a February return, according to Chris Botta of Islanders Point Blank.), Blake Comeau (Foot injury - is questionable to start).

Pittsburgh Penguins - Aaron Asham - (shoulder - skated Thursday for the first time since suffering his injury and is expected to return in about two weeks, the team's official site reports).

Dallas Stars - Jamie Benn - (concussion - skated on Sunday but remains doubtful for Monday's game in Tampa Bay, the Dallas Morning News reports).

New York Rangers - Vaclav Propsal - will miss six-to-eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery Monday, Kevin Allen of USA Today reports.


New York Islanders - John Bailey has been proving all the naysayers wrong so far this season with three goals and four assists.
Toronto Maple Leafs - Clarke MacArthur lighting up the scoreboard with five goals and one assist.
New York Rangers - Brandon Dubinsky is stepping up along the way helping the Rangers stay afloat with the absence of All-Star RW Marian Gaborik


Ottawa Senators - Erik Karlsson - The defenseman has been brutal so far with Ottawa and there are talks that he might be sent down to the AHL.

Recommended Pickup

Josh Bailey, C, NYI - The belief here is that his hot start is for real.
