Helene St. James: Detroit Red Wings forward Jakub Vrana practiced in a no-contact jersey. He’s expected to meet with his surgeon mid-month. The hope is that he’ll be able to start taking contact after that.
Adam Kimelman: Philadelphia Flyers forward Derick Brassard will return to the lineup tonight. He’s only played two games since November 23rd due to a lower-body injury. Brassard: “Came back too quick like 3 times. … Hopefully I’m ready to go here. Probably take a few games to get back to normal. Try to keep everything simple & just have fun.”
Pens Inside Scoop: Pittsburgh Penguins forward Danton Heinen on his upper-body injury: “It was just a little tweak to something I had to give a little bit of rest to. The break came at a good time. I feel good now. The rest was great. I feel ready to go. Just talk to the trainers and get it going.”
Defenseman Zach Bogosian is week-to-week.
Mark Masters: Toronto Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe on forward Auston Matthews: “He came in today feeling pretty good so it’s a really good sign. Obviously, for his status in terms of practising tomorrow, we’ll see how he comes in, but today was a very good day.”
- Mark Masters: Keefe continued: “There was a pretty good sense, not right away necessarily, but by the time he left, that it wasn’t going to necessarily be a head injury, so that had us feeling pretty good. With the nature of the hit … you’re going to continue to be cautious …”
Mike McIntyre: Winnipeg Jets coach Dave Lowry said that forward Nikolaj Ehlers returned from Denmark but is still “a long ways off” from even starting to practice with the team. It could be two to four weeks before that.
