|12/18/2017||Josh Morrissey, Wpg, D|
|With Jets defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Toby Enstrom out due to injuries on Sunday, Morrissey, who had a goal and an assist, is being counted on to not only up his game defensively, but to replace some of the lost offense.
Analysis: Morrissey has two goals over the past four games after having just three over his first 30.
|12/18/2017||Connor Hellebuyck, Wpg, G|

Analysis: Boeser, who leads all NHL rookies with 17 goals and 30 points, took a shot by Flames defenseman Mark Giordano on his left skate and immediately fell to the ice before crawling back to the bench. Already without key forwards Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi, the Canucks can ill afford an extended absence from the promising young wing.
