Description: Anaheim defenseman Bryan Allen is questionable for Friday's game against Calgary with flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Allen, who has already missed three consecutive games, doesn't add much offensively (zero goals, two assists in 19 games) so has little fantasy value even when healthy.

Description: The Florida Panthers have traded defenseman Bryan Allen to the Carolina Hurricanes for forward Sergei Samsonov.
Insight: Allen will provide the Hurricanes with some veteran blueline depth. Samsonov should be right in the mix for top-6 minutes with the roster purge taking place in Florida, at least on a short-term basis.
