Movember, the charity movement with the mustache as its focal point, is back and bigger than ever.

The Movember Foundation uses the month of November to challenge men to grow facial hair to inspire one another to live happier, healthier and longer lives. The foundation has raised more than $650 million and helped fund more than 1,000 breakthrough men's health programs in 21 countries.

Movember's outreach has extended through its partnership with the NHL and Hockey Fights Cancer. The annual Hockey Fights Cancer campaign, launched Oct. 19 and running until Nov. 13, is a joint initiative between the NHL and the NHL Players' Association that's raised more than $15 million since its inception in 1998.

Twenty-five NHL teams and 369 players contributed to Movember last year, according to the Movember Foundation. The Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, and Carolina Hurricanes ranked as the League's top-three fundraising teams. Every team in Canada registered and participated, and player participation grew 16 percent from 2013 with Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher emerging as the top fundraiser.

NEWARK, N.J. -- New York Islanders captain John Tavares did not play Saturday against the New Jersey Devils because of an illness and is considered day-to-day, coach Jack Capuano said.

Tavares was at Prudential Center but was a late scratch and sent home prior to the game after he was evaluated by Islanders doctors. Capuano said he isn't sure if Tavares will be available Sunday, when the Islanders play the Buffalo Sabres at Barclays Center (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, MSG-B, BELL TV, MSG+).

The Islanders lost to the Devils 3-2 in a shootout.

Tavares has 11 points in 10 games this season. He did not miss a game last season.

"It was just best that we get him home and rest and we should know more later [Saturday night] or first thing [Sunday] morning," Capuano said. "It's an illness and we just want to make sure we're doing the right thing."

Stars satisfied with strong start to season

FRISCO, Texas -- It has been an interesting week for the Dallas Stars.

They returned home from a four-game sweep of their Eastern Conference road trip. Then their five-game winning streak ended in their first home game, a 6-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Oct. 24.

Dallas responded with consecutive 4-3 comeback wins, on Tuesday against the Anaheim Ducks and Thursday against the Vancouver Canucks in overtime. The Stars end a four-game homestand Saturday against the San Jose Sharks (3 p.m. ET; FS-SW, CSN-CA).

The Stars are 8-2-0, and their 16 points were second in the NHL behind the Montreal Canadiens' 18 heading into play Friday.

"I'll use the word comfortable. I'm comfortable with our start," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Friday. "I want us to continue to get better. We've found ways to win several games and we've put a real nice road trip together, which really helped us in the start. So for me, I think the word comfortable [is fitting]."

No plans for 'rash changes' to Ducks, GM says

Friday, 10.30.2015 / 4:00 PM / News

NHL.com

There will be no "rash changes" to the Anaheim Ducks despite a poor start to the season, general manager Bob Murray said Friday, and he expects a move up the standings.

The Ducks are 1-7-2, last in the NHL.

"We were one game away from the [Stanley Cup] Final just five months ago," Murray told the Ducks website. "So while this has been a terrible start, I'm not inclined to make rash changes. I'm going to be patient. That said, we are severely underperforming as a group. I can't recall a time where a vast majority of our players have underachieved simultaneously, and I fully expect a turnaround."

Calgary Flames goaltender Jonas Hiller will miss at least a week because of a lower-body injury, coach Bob Hartley said Friday.

Hiller was injured during the third period of a 5-4 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday when Senators forward Bobby Ryan collided with him.

Hiller is 2-3-0 with a 3.67 goals-against average and .861 save percentage in seven games.

Fantasy Friday: Analyzing Crosby, other slow starters

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

In the previous edition of Fantasy Friday, I looked at some of the biggest surprises in fantasy hockey and whether I believed they could carry their fast starts for the remainder of the season. This week, I'll look at the opposite, the biggest disappointments to this point.

However, instead of being 16 days into the season, we're now 23 days into it. Looking back at last season, players like Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche, Sean Monahan of the Calgary Flames and Tomas Tatar of the Detroit Red Wings had been struggling 23 days into their seasons. Some players are able to shake off their early-season slumps, like Monahan and Tatar, while others carry those struggles throughout the season and never quite fully recover, like MacKinnon. Even Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin only had five goals and one assist through his first nine games, but we all know how his season turned out.

This season seems to have more superstars coming out of the gate slowly than in the past, but the question is, can they recover?

Here's a look at some of the most notable disappointments of the young 2015-16 season and whether I believe they can turn things around for fantasy owners.

Penguins come through to make young fan's night

Friday, 10.30.2015 / 11:04 AM / News

The Pittsburgh Penguins turned a fun night at Consol Energy Center into something a lot more memorable for one young fan Thursday.

Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma, in his first game against the Penguins, the team he coached for parts of six seasons, caught a puck that flew into the Sabres bench during the first period. Bylsma noticed a young boy standing in the aisle a few rows behind the bench and tried to toss him the puck, but another fan intercepted it.

Penguins TV broadcaster Bob Errey mentioned it during the telecast, and fans let the Penguins know what happened via social media.

"For everyone tweeting us about the little kid who just got the puck snatched away, we're on it -- don't you worry," the Penguins posted on their Twitter account.
