James Reimer Headshot

Reimer will be between the pipes against the Coyotes on Thursday, David Dwork of CBS Miami reports.

Reimer's tailspin continues as he has gone 2-6-1 as the No.1 goalies for the Panthers. The organization certainly has to be questioning the fact they are on the hook for the netminder for another four years at $3.4 million annually considering he has flopped with Roberto Luongo (lower body) sidelined.

Brad Brach Headshot

Brach extended his scoreless-innings streak to six while allowing a hit and striking out one in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

Brach has put together a strong spring, limiting opposing batters to a .182 BAA while posting a 7:1 K:BB through six appearances. The veteran reliever is coming off a career-best season in which he notched 24 holds and posted a 2.05 ERA to accompany a 1.04 WHIP. Brach's 10.5 K/9 in 2016 demonstrates his ability to provide value across many formats.

Jonathan Bernier Headshot

Bernier allowed three goals on 32 shots but came away the winner in a 4-3 victory Wednesday over Edmonton.

The wins just keep rolling in for Bernier, who is now 6-0-1 over his last seven starts, a span that's featured a sparkling .950 save percentage and equally stingy 1.54 GAA. He's fared more than admirably in the absence of John Gibson (lower body), whose return date is still unknown.

Tyler Naquin Headshot

Naquin (knee) is back in the Indians' Cactus League lineup Thursday.

The outfielder was scratched from Saturday's contest with bilateral knee soreness but appears to be over it. Manager Terry Francona has expressed his desire to hand Cleveland's everyday center fielder job to Naquin, despite his shaky numbers against left-handed pitching. The 25-year-old has about a week to cement that gig, which would give him stronger value in deep mixed fantasy leagues.

Hampus Lindholm Headshot

Lindholm scored a goal and dished out two assists in a 4-3 win over Edmonton on Wednesday.

The rearguard snapped an eight-game point drought in style in this one, recording a plus-3 rating in addition to the goal and pair of helpers. Still, with just 17 points in 60 games this year, the fourth-year NHLer is on pace for his least productive campaign after recording at least 28 points in each of his first three seasons.

Mike Condon Headshot

Condon was named the home starter for Thursday's battle with the Penguins.

Not surprisingly, Pittsburgh leads the league in scoring at 3.46 goals per game, but Condon played remarkably well in his last home start versus the flightless birds -- his former team -- stopping 29 of 30 shots en route to a win. It'll take a brazen soul to roll him out in daily contests, but then again, his price tag can't be all that high as the secondary option in goal for the Senators.

Braden Holtby Headshot

Holtby will patrol the crease against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, JJ Regan of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Considering the playoff implications of Thursday's contest, it should come as no surprise that the Caps will go with Holtby. The 27-year-old has been rather average of late, as he posted a 3-3-1 record and .885 save percentage. Despite his recent form, the netminder remains one of the top goalies in the world, as evident by his 37 victories; just three shy of reaching the 40-win mark for the third straight season.
12:01 pm (EST)
Wayne Ellington Headshot

Ellington's status is up in the air for Thursday's game against Toronto following the birth of his child Wednesday night.

Ellington was not present at shootaround Thursday morning, but the hope is that he'll rejoin the team in time for Thursday night's contest. If that's not the case, some combination of Tyler Johnson, Rodney McGruder and Josh Richardson would absorb his vacated minutes.
12:01 pm (EST)
Ryan Getzlaf Headshot

Getzlaf recorded a trio of helpers in a 4-3 win over the Oilers on Wednesday. He also skated to a plus-3.

The Ducks' captain has been a beast lately to the tune of 23 points in his last 17 games -- including two goals and eight assists in his last six. All of a sudden, Getzlaf's 62 points are one shy of the 63 he put up last year, and with nine games remaining in the regular season, it's conceivable he could reach the 70-point plateau for the sixth time in his career.
12:00 pm (EST)
Raisel Iglesias Headshot

Iglesias said his elbow and hip injuries stem from when he fell in the shower about three weeks ago, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The candidate for Cincinnati saves may need some time to be ready for the start of the season. He's set to begin a throwing program Sunday, though, so any absence at this point may wind up short-lived. Wading through the muddy waters of this closer committee is an unwanted task, but if fantasy players must do it, Iglesias carries the best skills of any Reds stopper option.
