Leafs Ice Chips: Hyman misses skate, but expected to play in showdown vs. Tampa
Keep updated on all the injury news and roster updates from around the NHL with daily Ice Chips.
The Flames have recalled defenceman Michael Stone from the AHL's Stockton Heat, the team announced Monday, giving Calgary even more depth on the blue line.
Stone has missed most of the season due to a blood clot issue. He has four assists in 11 games but has not played in the NHL since Nov. 11.
The 28-year-old had three goals and seven assists in 82 games last year.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Leafs forward Zach Hyman was absent from practice Monday morning but head coach Mike Babcock said he thinks Hyman will be able to play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning. If not, Tyler Ennis will go if Hyman can't.
Babcock added that Travis Dermott and Jake Gardiner are making progress with their injuries but no timeline was given for when they could be back.
Here were the lines:
Detroit Red Wings
Injured forward Dylan Larkin will see a specialist Monday in New York regarding his injured neck according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. If he's cleared to play, he is expected to join the Wings Tuesday in Montreal.
He has missed the team's last three games.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Forward Boone Jenner is sick and will not play Monday against the New York Islanders according to Aaron Portzline of The Athletic.
Portzline notes that Nick Foligno will man the middle and Eric Robinson will go into the lineup with Jenner out.
Jenner has 12 goals and 19 helpers so far this season over 64 games.
St. Louis Blues
Injured Blues forward David Perron is believed to be dealing with concussion-related symptoms according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford reports he was skating as an extra at Blues practice Monday.
The veteran has not played since Jan. 17 but has been practicing with the team including participating in battle drills that involve some contact. In 45 games this year, Perron has 17 goals and 35 points.
New Jersey Devils
Forward Miles Wood (ankle) will travel with the Devils to Calgary on Monday according to team reporter Amanda Stein. He has been out since Feb. 25.
Meanwhile, Nico Hischier will not travel with the team and instead remain back in New Jersey. The former No. 1 overall pick has not played since March 2 as he battles an upper-body injury. Stein adds that he has been skating on his own and there is a possibility he could join the team mid-way through the trip.
Following their matchup with the Flames, the Devils will head to Edmonton to face the Oilers Wednesday.
