News: Hansen left Saturday's game against the Flames after collapsing briefly on the bench shortly after taking a hit early in the second period, NHL.com reports.
Impact: Hansen was conscious and on his feet just a few moments later, but it was obviously a scary incident. He was helped to the locker room by the team's medical staff and remained in the dressing room for observation. We'll have more details as they become available.
News: Hamhuis (leg/groin) was on the ice prior to Saturday's morning skate, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Impact: Hamhuis wasn't wearing his full gear during the skating session, so it wouldn't seem that he's particularly close to a return just yet. The blueliner has been sidelined since Nov. 20 with the leg injury.
News: Kassian (finger) skated on his own in full gear prior to Saturday's morning skate, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Impact: Though Kassian can't truly test out the strength of his broken finger simply by skating, the fact that he was back in full gear at least demonstrates that he's preparing for a forthcoming return. He's tentatively planning to be ready to go shortly after the Christmas break.
News: Miller will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Flames, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.
Impact: He'll get a favorable matchup against a Flames squad that has dropped seven in a row while averaging just 1.5 goals per game during that stretch. Miller's play has been mostly subpar this season, but he still carries a 16-7-0 record into Saturday's tilt.
