VANCOUVER: LAST SEASON: 31-40-11, 73 points. Finished seventh in Pacific Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Travis Green (Second season, second NHL season)
ADDED: LW Antoine Roussel, C Jay Beagle
LOST: LW Daniel Sedin, C Henrik Sedin
PLAYER TO WATCH: RW Brock Boeser. In the post-Sedins era, the Canucks have a budding superstar in Boeser, who led them with 55 points in 62 games last season as a rookie. The sharpshooter from Minnesota should just be getting started and is a bright spot for a Vancouver team without a lot in the present to get excited about.
OUTLOOK: Probably a fourth consecutive season without a trip to the playoffs. Canucks general manager Jim Benning continues making stopgap moves to help Vancouver avoid bottoming out, but at some point, that needs to happen to build up the kind of next-generation talent needed to get back to contending again. It's not there yet.
PITTSBURGH: LAST SEASON: 47-29-6, 100 points. Finished second in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Washington Capitals in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Mike Sullivan (fourth season, sixth NHL season).
ADDED: D Jack Johnson, C Matt Cullen.
LOST: F Conor Sheary, F Tom Kuhnhackl, D Matt Hunwick, F Carter Rowney.
PLAYER TO WATCH: G Matt Murray. The 24-year-old endured an up and down first season as the franchise's full-time starter. His goals against average (2.92) and save percentage (.907) all took significant dips off his previous two seasons. Having spotty play in front of him didn't help. If Murray can return to the steady form that helped the Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017, Pittsburgh will be a tough out in the postseason.
OUTLOOK: Pittsburgh's bid to become the first team in more than 30 years to "threepeat" ended with a loss to Washington. They opted to tinker than totally retool in the offseason, splurging on Johnson and bringing back the 42-year-old Cullen to provide depth down the middle. With Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin around, the Penguins will always be in the mix. But with the core of Crosby, Malkin, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang all in their early 30s, staying fresh for eight months will be a challenge.
Injuries already mounting for Pens, Canucks

It's only a couple weeks into the season, yet when the Vancouver Canucks meet the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena, one of the main story lines for both clubs will revolve around injuries.

The Penguins (2-1-1) lost one of their top two-way defensemen when Justin Schultz had surgery Sunday for a broken lower left leg. He was hurt Saturday when he apparently got his skate stuck in a rut on the ice while falling and is expected to miss four months.

"It's a huge loss for us, especially what he brings, the role he plays in tons of aspects of our team," fellow Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang said Monday. "He stabilizes the whole (defensive) corps."

The Penguins still appeared to be looking at potential defensive pairings beyond the top tandem of Letang and Brian Dumoulin.

"We have capable NHL defensemen, so I'm confident that we can put guys in that I know can help us win games," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "(Schultz) is not an easy guy to replace. He's a very good player and has been very good for us for a long time. So it's a tough loss from our standpoint, but certainly we've got to be prepared with the guys that we have."

Schultz has four assists in four games this season. Last season, he had four goals, 27 points in 63 games.

It seems likely that Juuso Riikola will find a regular spot on the Penguins defense for the foreseeable future.

Pittsburgh's other injury news is more positive for them. No. 1 goaltender Matt Murray, who got a concussion Oct. 8 in practice, could start against Vancouver. He served as Casey DeSmith's backup Saturday in a 4-3 shootout against the Canadiens.

"It's hard to know with injuries like that, but it's no fun to have those injuries, either, so I was happy with how quickly it resolved," said Murray, who has had three concussions during his NHL career, two this calendar year.

"We are excited that he is healthy," Sullivan said. "It's great for our team. It's great for Matt. It's certainly encouraging that it didn't linger or last for a significant amount of time."

Vancouver (3-2), which practiced Monday in Pittsburgh, will be without promising rookie Elias Pettersson and veteran Jay Beagle.

Pettersson has a concussion after taking a hit Saturday from Florida's Mike Matheson, who was suspended for two games by the NHL department of player safety.

"He's doing better," Canucks coach Travis Green said Monday. "Better yesterday. Better today again."

Pettersson has five goals, eight points, leading Vancouver in both categories. He is expected to miss at least the next two games.

"It's tough to see an injury like that ... (to) a player like that, who's if not our best player, one of the best players in the league right now in my opinion," Canucks forward Bo Horvat told NHL.com.

Beagle is expected to miss six weeks because of a broken forearm he sustained blocking a shot.

Green noted that Beagle's injury has been overshadowed by Pettersson's injury and the Matheson hit. Beagle has one assist.

"It got lost in this a little bit," Green said. "He's also a big part of the group."

Vancouver recalled forward Adam Gaudette from Utica of the American Hockey League.

The Penguins recalled forward Derek Grant from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton while returning goaltender Tristan Jarry, who had been on an emergency recall. Pittsburgh has not yet replaced Schultz on the roster.
