Oilers will sit Yakupov again against Capitals

Nail Yakupov, the first pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game, Edmonton Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said Monday, ahead of his team's game against the Washington Capitals.

"I really liked our group of forwards last game," Eakins told reporters in Washington. "There was absolutely nobody there that deserves to come out. So we'll stick with the same group and that's the challenge of the player. Not just for [Yakupov], for all of our guys. It's such a privilege to play in this League and you want to give everything you have every night so you never end up like Wally Pipp."

Pipp was a first baseman for the New York Yankees who famously missed a game and was replaced by Lou Gehrig in the starting lineup. Gehrig went on to set a record for consecutive games played.

Wild recall Kuemper from AHL Iowa

The Minnesota Wild on Monday recalled goaltender Darcy Kuemper from Iowa of the American Hockey League for the second time in the past four days.

With No. 1 goalie Niklas Backstrom ailing due to a knee strain, Kuemper was recalled Oct. 10 and served as Josh Harding's backup in a 5-1 defeat of the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Kuemper was then returned to Iowa, but with Backstrom apparently still not ready to dress for the Wild's game Monday against the Buffalo Sabres, the 23-year-old is back again. He was 1-2-0 with a 2.08 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in six games last season.

Enroth likely in goal for Sabres

Jhonas Enroth was the first Buffalo Sabres goaltender off the ice during the team's morning skate, making it likely he will start for the team Monday against the Minnesota Wild (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2).

In two games this season Enroth is 0-1-1 with a 2.95 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

The decision to play Enroth Monday likely means Ryan Miller will start Tuesday at the New York Islanders.

Maintenance day for Sharks' Hertl, Burns

San Jose Sharks forwards Tomas Hertl and Brent Burns sat out practice on Sunday, but what's good news for the Sharks is that both players were walking around the dressing room and coach Todd McLellan told reporters it was a maintenance day for both.

Hertl suffered an apparent shoulder injury Saturday with just over two minutes left in the second period following a collision with Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur, two days after he was hit in the head by Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alex Edler. He was helped to the dressing room and did not return.

Playing in his first NHL season, Hertl has become an instant sensation with a League-leading seven goals, four of which came last Tuesday against the New York Rangers that included a highlight-reel, between-the-legs-goal.

Oilers' Eakins has Toronto homecoming against Leafs

Dallas Eakins is only four games into his tenure as coach of the Edmonton Oilers. That short time in Edmonton will make his return to Toronto Saturday even more special, as his Oilers face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre in Saturday night.

A former Maple Leafs player and assistant, Eakins spent four seasons coaching the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, before being hired by Edmonton. That familiarity with the Maple Leafs organization is what will make Saturday night a special affair for Eakins.

"I think I know everybody that works in this building, from the ushers to the Zamboni guy to the staff," Eakins said following the morning skate. "I have a history with a lot of the players. It's always good when it's something familiar. I'm grateful for the time that I spent here."

Stars recall goalie Campbell

The Dallas Stars have recalled goaltender Jack Campbell under emergency conditions from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

The Stars were forced to call up their top goaltending prospect after starter Kari Lehtonen sustained a lower-body injury in a 4-1 win Friday against the Jets in Winnipeg. He is listed as day-to-day.

Dallas plays against the Wild in Minnesota Saturday in the second of back-to-back games and the second contest in a stretch that will see them play three games in four nights. Campbell was Dallas' first-round pick (No. 11) in the 2010 draft and posted a 19-13-3 record last season with Texas. Campbell made his only start of the 2013-14 AHL season on Oct. 5, making 18 saves in Texas' 4-1 win against the Chicago Wolves.

Veteran backup Dan Ellis made his first appearance of the season Friday night in relief of the injured Lehtonen. He stopped 22 of 23 shots in the appearance and is expected to be Dallas' starter moving forward.

Blackhawks call up Pirri, send down Hayes

The Chicago Blackhawks announced late Friday that they have recalled forward Brandon Pirri from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. The team also assigned forward Jimmy Hayes to their AHL affiliate.

A second-round pick (No. 59) in 2009, Pirri led the IceHogs in scoring last season, recording 75 points in 78 games. In seven career games with the Blackhawks, he has recorded no goals and two assists. He was expected to compete in training camp for the team's second-line center job, but was sent down by Chicago just days before the start of the season.

The 6-foot-6, 221-pound Hayes played in two games to start the 2013-14 season, recording no points and one shot. In 43 career games with Chicago, he has six goals and 13 points.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
