Travis Hamonic Headshot

Hamonic (knee) remained back in Long Island as the team kicked off the first half of a nine-game road trip, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

Coach Doug Weight told reporters that he did expected Hamonic to meet them out on the road at some point with March 2 in Dallas a potential landing date. The blueliner has missed 20 straight games with this knee ailment, but has resumed skating and would appear to be on track to return soon. The first step will likely be joining his teammates for a practice session, even in a non-contact jersey, in order to start getting back up to speed.

Keegan Lowe Headshot

Lowe was traded to Montreal for defenseman Philip Samuelsson and then reassigned to AHL St. John's on Tuesday.

Lowe turns 24 next month and has been a stay-at-home defenseman throughout his professional career, logging 49 points in 239 games (two of them being in the NHL). Lowe's acquisition provides Montreal with some additional organizational depth on the blueline, though it's unlikely that the player will see any time in the NHL this season.

Henrik Lundqvist Headshot

Lundqvist will tend the twine for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Lundqvist has registered six wins in his last seven appearances, while posting a stellar 1.99 GAA over that stretch. The netminder will face off with a Canadiens squad that is reeling as they are 2-7-1 in their previous 10 outings. Montreal put up five goals on King Henrik last time these two teams met, but that was a significantly better performing group of Habs.

Steven Wright Headshot

Wright (shoulder) is on schedule with his rehab and is expected to be ready Opening Day, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

The 32-year-old threw his first bullpen session of spring Monday, and the Red Sox are continuing to ease him back, with his next throwing session scheduled for Thursday. Manager John Farrell noted that, barring any setbacks, he believes Wright will have enough time to get ready for the season, so it is something that will be monitored as spring training progresses.

Okaro White Headshot

White was recalled from the D-League on Tuesday.

The Heat sent White to the D-League to allow him to participate in the D-League All-Star Game over the weekend, but he'll now return to Miami in advance of Friday's game in Atlanta. In 14 games for the Heat this season, White is averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes per game.
1:37 pm (EST)
Mike Tolbert Headshot

Tolbert was released by Carolina on Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Tolbert had arguably his least effective year in Carolina in 2016, averaging only 11.6 total yards per game. With younger backs Fozzy Whitaker and Cameron Artis-Payne filling in backup roles behind starter Jonathan Stewart, combined with the fact that Tolbert was due $1.5 million in 2017, the Panthers decided to part ways with the fullback. Tolbert will finish his career in Carolina with 19 total touchdowns over five years.

Marcus Stroman Headshot

Stroman said his surgically-repaired knee "finally feels 100 percent," and he's confident he can throw upwards of 240 innings this season, Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports.

Now two years removed from surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Stroman said Monday that his body "feels the best it's ever felt." The Jays' ace also commented on overcoming 2016's early-season struggles. "I just got kind of out of whack at some point," the 25-year-old said. "I just simplified everything on my own at that point, and that's something I'm going to stick with this year. It's in my delivery and in my motion. I feel excited this year for what I'm going to do." After failing to meet expectations in last year's campaign, Stroman could slip down some draft boards past his true value. He has the talent to be a solid ace, or at the very least, a strong second option across most fantasy formats.

Magnus Paajarvi Headshot

Paajarvi was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.

After seven short games and three points, another NHL spell has come to a close for Paajarvi. The 10th-overall pick in 2009, Paajarvi's career arc has been disappointing to witness. As a highly-touted rookie, Paajarvi scored 15 goals and 34 points in 2010-11, but has trended downwards since then. Nowadays the 25-year-old Swede is a depth forward, bouncing back-and-forth between the AHL and NHL, hoping to rediscover his game.
1:20 pm (EST)
Mike Hoffman Headshot

Hoffman (groin) will not play Tuesday night against the Devils, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Hoffman was among three Ottawa forwards to sustain an injury in Sunday's game against the Jets -- Mark Stone (neck) and Tommy Wingels (undisclosed) were the others. Ottawa's 17th-ranked power play takes a huge hit without Hoff, who has 11 power-play goals and is tied for fourth in the league with Patrick Eaves of the Stars in said category. Expect Ryan Dzingel to claim the top man-advantage slot at left wing while Hoffman heals.
1:20 pm (EST)
Drew Pomeranz Headshot

Pomeranz (elbow) is on track with his recovery and is expected to be ready for the start of the season, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Despite Pomeranz being behind most pitchers, having thrown his first bullpen session of spring Monday, manager John Farrell said he expects the southpaw to have enough time to be ready for opening day, barring any setbacks. He is slated to throw another bullpen session Thursday, and will look to lock down one of the final two rotation spots as he regains his health and starts to throw more in spring.
