R. Grimaldi - F
Grimaldi was assigned to AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, TSN reports.
Grimaldi was a healthy scratch the last three games, so it's best for his development to be bumped down a rank. The 25-year-old scored a goal and recorded a minus-2 rating in six games on the Predators' fourth line. He'll likely be called up again if the Preds' suffer more injuries to their forwards.

K. Palmieri - F
Palmieri has 11 goals and 20 points in 19 games this season.
Palmieri has found success on the power play again with five goals and four assists on the unit. His current pace is a career-high 86 points, even though his 19.3 percent shooting rate is bound to regress as the season goes on. Nevertheless, he's leading the teams in goals and points and is second in hits (35), making him a well-rounded fantasy asset moving forward.

K. Agostino - F
Agostino scored a goal on two shots along with two hits and a minor penalty in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals.
The goal was Agostino's first as a member of the Canadiens. He'll get more chances to build on that goal as both Paul Byron (lower body) and Joel Armia (knee) are sidelined, but Agostino needs to be more active. A prolific offensive player in the AHL, Agostino has just seven shots on net in six games with Montreal.

S. Crosby - F
Crosby (upper body) practiced Tuesday and could play Wednesday against Dallas, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
Crosby has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, however, head coach Mike Sullivan told reporters the 31-year-old "looks pretty close [to returning]". The Penguins, meanwhile, would certainly welcome their captain's return, having lost nine of their last 10 games. Sid the Kid, limited to 16 games this season, has eight goals and 19 points.

D. Perron - F
Perron has one assist and 12 shots on goal in nine November games.
After a hot start with five goals and five assists in the first 10 games -- all in October -- the calendar flipped to November and Perron went ice cold. Perron's slump is consistent with the Blues, who have a 4-5-0 record and are averaging 2.2 goals per game during that stretch. With that, the Blues fired bench boss Mike Yeo and replaced him with interim coach Craig Berube, and that may spark an offensive surge for the team.
Added Yesterday 7:13 pm (EST)
D. Doughty - D
Doughty has just one assist in his last seven games and has posted a minus-6 rating over that span.
The Kings sit last in the NHL with 15 points, so it shouldn't be terribly surprising that Doughty has managed a goal and just 10 points a quarter of the way through the season. The two-time Olympian's only marker came back on Oct. 25, and since then, the 28-year-old has recorded just six helpers. Los Angeles needs more from No. 8 (as do his fantasy owners).
Added Yesterday 7:09 pm (EST)
B. Schenn - LW
Schenn recorded a minus-2 rating in Monday's 2-0 loss to the Kings.
It's a bad look that Schenn was on the ice for both goals in his team's loss, although one was against an empty net. The 27-year-old is off to a slow start with four goals and 10 points in 15 games, putting him on pace for 52 points, which is quite the downgrade from the 70 points he notched last year. With a new head coach on board, Schenn will look to fix his slump starting Wednesday in Nashville.
Added Yesterday 7:06 pm (EST)
V. Tarasenko - F
Tarasenko has no goals, six assists and 26 shots on net in the last eight games.
Tarasenko's paid to score goals, and he hasn't been getting it done. Despite firing 75 shots on goal (3.95 per game) this year, he's converted just six times -- four on the power play. In fact, with two two-goal games, he's only scored in four of 19 contests. The 26-year-old still has 16 total points, and hopefully the coaching change -- Mike Yeo was fired and replaced by interim coach Craig Berube -- will spice things up enough to put Tarasenko back on track.
