P.K. Subban Headshot

Subban recorded a goal, an assist, and a plus-2 rating Tuesday in a 6-5 overtime loss to the Flames.

Subban rifled a shot from the point to tie the game at one goal apiece in the first period, with the play prompting a review by the officials for possible goalie interference on the part of Preds winger Kevin Fiala. The tally ended up staying on the board to snap a 17-game scoreless drought for the mobile defenseman, who is surging with four two-points efforts -- including one goal and eight assists -- in the last six games. Subban's first year in Smashville has been filled with peeks and valleys, with the low point being a month-long absence that wiped 16 games from his schedule (Dec. 17 - Jan. 19). There certainly are more consistent options than Subban, but you won't want to pivot away from him when he's on this kind of a hot streak.

Todd Frazier Headshot

Frazier did not participate in any drills Wednesday due to soreness in his left side, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Despite the vague setback, the White Sox seem to be fairly unconcerned about the issue. They predict that Frazier will be able to return to action in a day or two, so consider the third baseman day-to-day for the time being.

Michael Gbinije Headshot

Gbinije was reassigned to the D-League on Wednesday.

Both Gbinije and Henry Ellenson were sent back to the D-League, and the pair will be available for the Drive's matchup with Long Island on Wednesday night. Coach Stan Van Gundy said Gbinije and Ellenson will also play in Saturday's game against Rio Grande Valley, and it's unclear when they might return to Detroit.

Henry Ellenson Headshot

Ellenson was reassigned to the D-League on Wednesday, Aaron McMann of reports.

Ellenson was recalled for a few days leading up to the All-Star break, but he'll now return to Grand Rapids and is expected to suit up for the Drive on Wednesday night against Long Island. The rookie out of Marquette will remain in the D-League through at least Saturday, per coach Stan Van Gundy.

Chris Davis Headshot

Davis, who dealt with a lingering hand injury last season, said that he hasn't had any swelling or other issues through the first few days of batting practice, CBS Baltimore reports.

Early in the first year of a $161 million, seven-year contract, the Orioles first baseman injured his left hand while diving into a base. Davis still played 157 games -- second most in his major league career -- but hit just .221 and struck out a career-high 219 times. He says the offseason was what he needed. "I think the biggest thing was really the rest and the time off and not having the physical contact and the beating that I did every day when I was swinging and taking balls at first base," Davis said. Now at full strength, there's reason to believe the 30-year-old's numbers will rebound from last year's dip.

Kyle Gibson Headshot

Gibson changed his delivery this offseason in hopes of keeping his shoulder healthy this season, Mike Berardino of The Pioneer Press reports.

Gibson was sidelined for seven weeks last season with shoulder pain and said he felt "some discomfort" when he started his offseason throwing program. Intent on finding a fix, the 29-year-old turned to a physical trainer who showed him how to pronate properly at the end of his delivery. This motion keeps the humerus from rubbing against connective tissues, providing better longevity throughout the season. Gibson figures to be a large part of the Twins' rotation this season, so the alteration could lend benefits down the homestretch.

Mikko Koivu Headshot

Koivu registered a pair of power-play assists in Tuesday's 5-3 home loss to the Blackhawks.

Minnesota converted on both of its man-advantage opportunities, but Chicago overwhelmed in this divisional battle thanks in large part to captain Jonathan Toews collecting five points on the evening. As for Koivu, he needs just one more assist to reach at least 30 for the fourth consecutive season, with more than half of those setups (16) taking place on the man advantage. Amazingly, the veteran has four two-point efforts in his past five contests.
2:18 pm (EST)
Dougie Hamilton Headshot

Hamilton provided a goal and an assist to complement a plus-2 rating in Tuesday night's 6-5 overtime win over the Predators.

The fun doesn't stop there, as the two-way defenseman tacked on two PIM, plus just as many blocked shots and takeaways. Hamilton is a consistent producer from the back line, leading Calgary at the position with 36 points (nine goals, 27 assists) in 59 games. He's also been clutch with four game-winning tallies this campaign.

Gavin Floyd Headshot

Floyd says he's still not fully recovered from the strained shoulder that ended his 2016 season in June, John Lott reports.

After spending the first 11 years of his MLB career as a starter, Floyd became a full-time reliever in 2016. He admits that he still prepared like a starter and threw too many pitches in his mid-week bullpen sessions. The veteran left-hander attributes his injury woes to the self-imposed workload and is now uncertain where his health stands as Opening Day inches closer. A fierce battle for two bullpen spots is underway at Jays' camp, and Floyd's chances at earning one of those roles is seemingly fading fast.

Brandon Kintzler Headshot

Kintzler appears to be in line to be the Twins closer until Glen Perkins (shoulder) is healthy again, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 32-year-old spent much of the 2016 season closing games for Minnesota, and it seems like he'll start 2017 in that role as well. Kintzler had modest success in this role, as he amassed 17 saves while posting a 3.40 ERA (1.57 ERA from his first save through the end of August). However, he doesn't strike out enough batters to have much value once Perkins returns, so he should only be viewed as a short-term option for most fantasy owners while he's picking up saves.
