S. Weber - D
Weber (knee) is currently two weeks ahead of schedule in his rehab and could return to action by the end of November or early December, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Weber returned to practice for the first time since undergoing knee surgery Monday, which was the first indication that he may be ahead of schedule in his recovery. Weber's updated timeline suggests he could make his season debut as soon as Nov. 27 against Carolina, but a return to action in the first week of December is probably still the more likely scenario.

J. Campbell - G
Campbell (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Campbell will require 4-to-6 weeks to recover from surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Peter Budaj and Cal Peterson are the de facto goalies in Los Angeles with Jonathan Quick (knee) on injured reserve as well, so you may see a fair share of fantasy owners exploiting matchups that involve the Kings' organizational depth goalies.

J. Markstrom - G
Markstrom will guard the cage in Tuesday's road game against the Islanders.
Markstrom played pretty well in his last appearance Monday against the Rangers, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but he ultimately suffered his fourth loss of the campaign due to a lack of goal support from his teammates. The Swedish goaltender will look to stay sharp and secure his eighth victory of the season in a road matchup with a slumping Islanders team that's lost three consecutive games.

J. Saros - G
Saros will post up in the road net for Tuesday night's clash with the Sharks, Eric Gilmore of NHL.com reports.
Predators coach Peter Laviolette will send Saros to the cage after Pekka Rinne suffered a shootout loss to the Ducks for the first half of the back-to-back set Monday night. Saros has allowed seven goals on 55 shots (.873) while his team's been shorthanded this season -- this is a bit discouraging when viewed as an isolated metric, but the Predators are a disciplined team and only four teams have averaged fewer penalty minutes than Nashville's eight-spot. Saros will now prepare to face a Sharks team that ranks 15th in the league in scoring (3.25 goals per game) at the Shark Tank.

C. Jarnkrok - F
Jarnkrok (lower body) is still considered day-to-day and won't play Tuesday against the Sharks, NHL.com's Eric Gilmore reports.
Jarnkrok skated Tuesday, so he's definitely trending in the right direction, but he'll have to wait for Thursday's matchup with the Coyotes for his next opportunity to rejoin the lineup. With Jarnkrok unavailable, Rocco Grimaldi is expected to round out the Predators' depth at forward against San Jose.
Added 4:51 pm (EST)
A. Stralman - D
Stralman (upper body) won't play Tuesday against Buffalo, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
The Lightning are hoping Stralman will be ready to return at some point during their four-game road trip, but he'll have to wait for Thursday's game in Pittsburgh for his next opportunity to do so. With Stralman unavailable, the recently recalled Erik Cernak will slot into the lineup and make his NHL debut against the Sabres.
Added 4:34 pm (EST)
F. Andersen - G
Andersen will be in the blue paint against host Los Angeles on Tuesday, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Andersen is 80-42-19 since joining the Maple Leafs ahead of the 2016-17 campaign. He'll look to advance a torrid November that's consisted of a 3-1-0 record, 1.01 GAA and .968 save percentage through four games. The next matchup is particularly juicy for Andersen since he'll be countered by Peter Budaj -- with all due respect to the 36-year-old veteran, he was LA's third choice for starts before Jonathan Quick and Jack Campbell sustained their respective knee injuries.
Added 4:11 pm (EST)
J. Howard - G
Howard will defend the home net against the Coyotes on Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Detroit's traditional backup, Jonathan Bernier, faced a career-high 52 shots in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Hurricanes, so Howard will punch in for work facing a Coyotes team that he's had a fair amount of success handling in his career based on an 11-4-3 record, 2.50 GAA and .919 save percentage. At the rate Howard's going, he'll surpass last year's win total of 22, but the elite NHL backstops will roughly double that total when it's all said and done.
