Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: The Detroit Red Wings are calling Jonathan Bernier day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

“Right now it’s day to day,” Blashill said. “I don’t know if that stretches into a week or weeks. It’s all based on the healing process. I can’t tell you how long that is going to be.

“He’s been evaluated and I would just say it’s one of those injuries that could heal quickly, could take longer. We’re just not sure.”

Murray Pam: Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion said on TSN 1200 that goaltender Joey Daccord season is likely over.

Kristen Shilton: Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen has been dealing with a nagging lower-body for a while now and is just trying to play through it.

“I’m not really where I want to be obviously,” Andersen told reporters on a post-practice Zoom call Thursday. “I think I’m working towards just getting to as good as possible. But I think everyone goes through a season where you’ll have something going on. It’s just a matter of how well you can manage it and play through it, and you try to do the best you can to play as well as you can.”
