    Default Joe Thornton on IR

    Wasn't at practice this morning. Because he's on IR, he can't return until next Sunday, so a minimum of three games missed, all on the road (Islanders, Philly, Rangers). Next Sunday is against he Devils in New Jersey. No need to rush him back to play one game on the other side of the country.

    My guess is he'll be back after that, against Buffalo at home. That would be Oct. 18. That's just a guess, but I don't know the severity of his injury.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Kopitar, Voracek, Giroux, Wheeler, E. Staal, Marchessault, Couturier, Dadonov, Glass, Dube, Andersson, Ho-Sang, Roslovic
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, Gostisbehere, Suter, Boqvist
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Crawford

    Suomela could be a nice short-term add in deep leagues. He just had his first point and this should give him a bit more ice time.

    F: Tavares, Kucherov, Pastrnak, Backstrom, Hall, Stone, Pettersson

    He is dressing tonight!

    According to this morning's skate, he's on the first line between Meier and Pavelski. Not a bad deal.
