NYI: New York Islanders prospect Aatu Räty has remained hot at the 2022 World Juniors Championships.

WSH: Washington Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin and defenceman Dmitry Orlov are both scheduled to return to the United States from Russia this week.

FLA: Florida Panthers defenceman Marc Staal is excited to be back on a contending team.
