Jeff Rimer: Blue Jackets Nathan Horton will make his Blue Jackets debut tonight against the Coyotes. Sergei Bobrovsky is expected to be their backup.
Mike Harrington: Sabres Henrik Tallinder will be out one to two weeks with an upper-body injury. Suffered the injury on Sunday.
Dan Rosen: The Penguins claim Taylor Pyatt off waivers from the Rangers.
Farhan Lalji: The Canucks send Joachim Eriksson to the AHL. Looking like Roberto Luongo could return to the lineup this weekend.
Jim Fox: Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said that David Backes will be a game time decision. Chris Stewart is possible for tonight, but he still has to clear ‘protocol’ first. Lou Korac: Korac doesn’t count on Backes playing tonight. Sounded more like someone who could play soon, but not tonight.
