Fantasy Guide is here.

 

So far, Malhotra just has a training camp invite.

 

The Rangers made some cuts. They also kept a few in camp – but had them go to Hartford for a few days, which can’t be the greatest sign. Arnason and Locke were among the latter group.

 

Afternoon CUTS:
Zack Kassian, Luke Adam, Marcus Foligno, Jacob Lagace, Nick Crawford, Brayden McNabb. BUFFALO (still 50 left in camp)

Codey Burki, Matt Clarke, Ray Macias, Billy Sauer, Tyson Barrie, Joel Chouinard, Stefan Elliott, Kelsey Tessier. COLORADO (still 41 left in camp)

Tim Miller, Andrew Loverock. COLUMBUS (still 50 left in camp)

Tyler Beskorowany, Tomas Vincour. DALLAS (still 47 left)

EDMONTON cut a lot, but nobody of note (still 48 left)

Rangers cut a lot as well – of note: Ryan Bourque, Ethan Werek, Nigel Williams, Devin Didiomete and Dan Lacouture.

Drew Bannister, Tomas Kudelka, Erik Condra, Denis Hamel, Jim O’Brien and Chris Holt. OTTAWA (40 left)

Jared Staal, Mathieu Brodeur, Michael Stone. PHOENIX (51 left)

Dan DaSilva, Dean Strong, TJ Trevelyan. SAN JOSE

BLUES made lots of cuts, but nobody of note. 45 left.

Angus here. Got a fantasy hockey question on your mind? I’ll be taking questions for the next four hours here!!!

 

Line combinations for the Canucks tonight: Grabner-Kesler-Samuelsson, Raymond-Wellwood-Bernier. Luongo is starting the first half of the game for the Canucks, and Giguere for the Ducks. Schneider/Pogge are also playing for their respective clubs.

 

More rumors: Maxim Afinogenov to try out with Atlanta? (from Puck Daddy). Rob Niedermayer to sign in KHL? (TSN)

 

Sharks are close to signing Manny Malhotra

 

Kevin Porter had a strong game for Phoenix last night, one of the few plus players. He had an assist and saw a lot of PP and SH time.

 

Despite nearly 25 minutes of ice time, Sami Lepisto was held off the scoreboard. He didn’t see a lot of PP time – Yandle saw almost all of it and the team went with four forwards.

📢 advertisement:

 

Jason Allison saw his first game action in years, playing 14 minutes and nearly four of those on the power play. He didn’t produce, which is death for a man in his situation.

 

By all accounts, the Bozak-Hanson- Stalberg line for Toronto was dynamite. Watch Bozak’s goal below – fantastic.

 

Vinny Prospal played some center last night. As long as Dubinsky is out, you can expect that.

 

Evgeni Grachev, a long shot for a spot now, lined up with Anisimov and Lisin. He was held pointless.

 

John Tavares played with Weight and Bergenheim last night. He also saw some time with Justin Dibenedetto and Jon Sim. He was pointless and a minus-1

 

In trying to dig up a true gem for you in the fantasy guide, I came up with David McIntyre of
