Joey Rickard Headshot

Rickard is likely to bat leadoff against left-handed pitchers this season, PressBox.comreports.

Rickard is hitting .349 this spring with three home runs. He looks set to begin the season in a platoon with Hyun Soo Kim in left field. Rickard will get fewer at-bats as the right-handed hitter in the platoon.

Jaden Schwartz Headshot

Schwartz scored his 16th goal of the season in Saturday's OT loss to the Flames.

Schwartz recently snapped a 14-game goal drought and now has two in his last three games and a three-game point streak on the go.
11:11 pm (EST)
Hyun-Soo Kim Headshot

Kim is likely to bat leadoff against right-handed pitchers this season, PressBox.comreports.

Kim is hitting .255 this spring (13-for-51) after struggling early in camp. He'll platoon in left field with Joey Rickard.

Tyler Glasnow Headshot

Glasnow struck out nine batters in four innings Saturday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk. "Towards the fourth inning was the best I've felt," Glasnow told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "My curveball started to take shape and the changeup and fastball were coming along. Good signs."

He showed a glimpse of the velocity that helped to make him a prospect in the minors, touching 97 mph in the first inning. While Glasnow lacked efficiency (he needed 82 pitches to complete four innings), he carried himself with confidence against a watered-down Detroit lineup. The Bucs haven't decided upon a fifth starter, but general manager Neal Huntington could offer insight during his radio show Sunday.
11:10 pm (EST)
Logan Couture Headshot

Couture was struck in the face by a deflected puck in the second period of Saturday's game against the Predators, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports.

Video of the incident on social media shows Couture appearing to lose at least one tooth. He headed off quickly to the locker room and was not seen again, as Patrick Marleau slid up to center the No. 1 scoring line.
11:07 pm (EST)
Chris Tierney Headshot

Tierney (upper body) did not play in Saturday's game against the Predators due to an upper-body ailment, Curtis Pashelka of Bay Area News Group reports.

The fourth liner just missed time due to an illness, now he is back on the shelf again. When healthy he isn't a high-value option for fantasy owners.
11:04 pm (EST)
Seth Smith Headshot

Smith (hamstring) started in right field and went 2-for-3 in Saturday's spring training win over Minnesota.

Smith had been sidelined for much of the past two weeks dealing with a hamstring injury, but it looks like he'll be ready for Opening Day. mith is expected to handle the larger side of a platoon in right field.
11:00 pm (EST)
Frederik Andersen Headshot

Andersen left Saturday's game against the Sabres in the first period after suffering an upper-body injury.

Andersen allowed two goals on 16 shots before giving way to Curtis McElhinney, who finished up the disastrous 5-2 defeat in Buffalo. It's uncertain how long Andersen will be sidelined, but it's bad news for a team which just appeared to be hitting its stride while coming close to securing a playoff spot.
10:59 pm (EST)
Jake Allen Headshot

Allen gave up the game-winning goal with three seconds left in overtime Saturday against the Flames. He made 28 saves in a 3-2 loss.

Allen has only given up three goals twice in the last 10 games. The rest of games, he allowed two or fewer. Allen went through some queasy streaks this season, but he might just be settling into a decent groove. He's not the young stud everyone thought he'd be early in his career. But Allen has become a reasonably reliable option in the blue paint.
10:57 pm (EST)
Jonathan Quick Headshot

Quick made the start against the Rangers on Saturday night, Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider reports.

Quick has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his past seven outings. However, his offensive support has dried up in recent games, as the skates have provided just five total goals over his past four appearances.
