It's definitely a broken jaw.

from tsn.ca:

Sidney Crosby has a broken jaw and is out indefinitely after being hit in the mouth with a puck during a win against the New York Islanders on Saturday.

The Pittsburgh Penguins said on the team website Sunday that Crosby had surgery Saturday night, and there will be an update on his status later in the week.

According to TSN Hockey Insider of Pierre LeBrun, Crosby did not require wiring on his jaw, but he'll need more dental work on his teeth at some point.

Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer, was struck in the face during the first period of the Penguins' 2-0 win. Slow-motion replays showed multiple teeth flying out of his mouth after the puck struck him during his first shift. The team said Crosby had "major dental work" and will have more done later in the week.

The Penguins have won 15 straight games, and next play Buffalo on Tuesday.

Crosby has 56 points (15 goals, 41 assists) and holds a 10-point lead in the scoring race. He has not missed a game yet this season after being limited to 22 regular-season games over the prior two calendar years because of concussion-like symptoms and neck issues after absorbing big hits in consecutive games Jan. 1 and Jan. 5, 2011.

Midway through his comeback season, Crosby said he was feeling so good he "doesn't even think about" the risk of concussion or head or neck injury anymore after two years in which it dominated his life. Teammates expressed similar sentiments.

After Saturday's game, coach Dan Bylsma did not rule out the possibility Crosby would undergo evaluation for a concussion.

"I think every time that type of thing happens to a player you think of that," Bylsma said. "It doesn't matter who it is. ... You think about those things regardless of the player, yes."

There is no indication, however, that Crosby sustained a concussion and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, citing unidentified sources, reported Crosby is free of concussion symptoms.

Led by Crosby, the NHL's leading MVP candidate as this lockout-abbreviated season, the Penguins (28-8) have a league-best 56 points and have opened up a seven-point lead on the Montreal Canadiens atop the Eastern Conference on Saturday.

The playoffs are scheduled to begin April 30.

After a shot from teammate Brooke Orpik deflected off an Islanders player Saturday, an unsuspecting Crosby was struck as he faced away from the net while standing low and to the inside of the left-wing circle.

Crosby immediately collapsed to the ice, his stick flying out of his hand. A pool of blood formed on the ice before training staff came out. Crosby, who wears a visor that covers the top third of his face, soon left the ice, retreating into the locker room under his own power.

The accident overshadowed not only the Pittsburgh's 15th consecutive victory -- only one winning streak in NHL history has been longer -- but also the Penguins debut of Jarome Iginla.

Acquired via a trade with the Calgary Flames early Thursday morning, Iginla said players on the Penguins' bench were talking and asking about the condition of their captain during the game.

"Very tough," Iginla said. "Very unfortunate play. Seeing on the replay, he didn't see it coming at all."

Crosby won the Hart (MVP) and Art Ross (scoring champion) trophies as a 19-year-old in 2006-07 and shared the Rocket Richard (goal leader) with Steven Stamkos in 2009-10. He became the youngest captain lead his team to the Stanley Cup in 2009.




Not to wish an injury on anybody but a lot of Bruin fans are calling this incident total karma after the Iginla trade fiasco.

I do believe he was saying concussion because he is not a fan of Mr. Crosby, and does not enjoy The 23 point lead the Pens have over the Flyers.

I want the Flyers to tank and re-tool in this very deep draft. I was pissed when I watched the end of the game against Washington and They tied it up with 9 seconds in the 3rd. Also, as a person Who was had about 10-11 concussion in His life, a hard it to the Jaw can cause a severe Concussion. I don't wish concussions on an anybody, but it couldn't happen to a nicer whiner then Crosby. The NHL nor the Pens are going to announce that He has a concussion to the fans.

On to a different subjxet. Has there been any rumors about the Oilers going on up there? As My 2nd favorite team in the league, I'm curious since the deadline is Wednesday. Also, what are the chances of Iginla signing with Edmonton in the off-season? Go Oilers go!!!!

My guess is he had a concussion. Bobby Hull played with a broken jaw, so a broken
jaw alone shouldn't prevent Crosby from playing.

Flyers’ Talbot out indefinitely with broken leg

Ryan Dadoun

Apr 1, 2013, 10:27 AM EDT

The Philadelphia Flyers managed to eke out a 5-4 overtime win against the Washington Capitals on Sunday, but they lost forward Max Talbot in the process.

Talbot scored the Flyers’ first goal of the game, but in the second period he attempted to hit Capitals defenseman Mike Green and missed. He impacted the boards instead and couldn’t seem to put any weight on his leg as he immediately headed for the bench.

The initial fear was that Green’s skate might have sliced his leg, but Flyers GM Paul Holmgren revealed that the 29-year-old forward suffered a broken bone in his left leg and is out indefinitely.

Talbot is one of just five Flyers’ players to participate in all 35 of their contests this season. Philadelphia’s blueline has been decimated by injuries and Talbot is also joining fellow forward Daniel Briere (concussion) on the sidelines.

Couple of minor deals today.

- Chicago picked up C Michal Handzus from San Jose in exchange for a 2013 4th round pick.

- Philadelphia traded C Harry Zolnierczyk to Anaheim for LW Jay Rosehill.

Trade: ‘Hawks get Handzus from San Jose

Mike Halford

Apr 1, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

The San Jose Sharks have traded one of their big-bodied forwards.

It’s just not the one you’d expect.

With trade rumors swirling around Ryane Clowe, the Sharks flipped the script and sent center Michal Handzus to Chicago in exchange for a fourth-round pick, according to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Handzus, 36, will head to Chicago for the second time in his career. He was traded to the ‘Hawks in 2006 (in exchange for Kyle Calder), but suffered a torn ACL just eight games into the season.

It should be noted that, prior to getting hurt, he was a point-a-game guy.

As for holdovers from that ’06-07 ‘Hawks team? They include Patrick Sharp (who also played with Handzus in Philly)m Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook.

Handzus has been with the Sharks for the last two years after spending four seasons in Los Angeles. He has 1G-1A-2PTS in 28 games this year and is averaging 13:32 TOI per game.

The Slovak’s real value will come in the faceoff circle, as he’s won over 55 percent of his draws this season for the Sharks.

He’ll also give Chicago size down the middle — he’s 6-foot-4, 220 pounds — and some additional playoff experience, having appeared in 74 postseason contests.

Oh yeah, “Zeus” should give the ‘Hawks another option in the shootout.

He’s been one of San Jose’s go-to shooters this season, taking a team-high seven attempts, converting three times (he and Logan Couture are tied for the team lead in shootout goals).

Should also be noted the move reunites Handzus with countryman Marian Hossa — the pair were teammates for Slovakia at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where they finished fourth.

Trade: Philly sends Zolnierczyk to Anaheim for Rosehill

Mike Halford

Apr 1, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired forward Harry Zolnierczyk from Philadelphia in exchange for pugilist Jay Rosehill, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

Zolnierczyk, 25, has spent the last two seasons shuttling between Philly and its AHL affiliate in Adirondack. He played in 37 games for the Flyers during the 2011-12 season, scoring 3G-3A-6PTS.

This season, the former Brown University product appeared in seven games, making a name for himself with a series of controversial hits.

The most recent one came in early March, when he was suspended four games for charging Senators forward Mike Lundin.

Rosehill, 27, signed a one-year deal with the Ducks in early January, but has spent the entire season playing with AHL Norfolk. He’s actually been somewhat productive with the Admirals, scoring 4G-4A-8PTS in 33 games while racking up 90 PIM.

Rosehill last appeared in the NHL during the 2011-12 campaign, appearing in 31 games for Toronto. He failed to score a point but did register 60 penalty minutes and a minus-four rating.

So, what does this deal mean for each team?

Zolnierczyk’s aggressive ways will add to a Ducks team loaded with size: David Steckel (6-foot-6, 215 pounds) Bryan Allen (6-foot-5, 226 pounds), Sheldon Souray (6-foot-4, 233 pounds) Patrick Maroon (6-4, 225) and Brad Staubitz (30 fights over the last two seasons).

Rosehill could squeeze into the Flyers lineup given the injuries to forwards Danny Briere, Max Talbot and Jody Shelley, though it seems like the AHL is a more likely landing spot.

Trade: Kings acquire Regehr from Buffalo

Mike Halford

Apr 1, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

The Los Angeles Kings have bolstered their blueline for a Stanley Cup defense, acquiring veteran defenseman Robyn Regehr from Buffalo in exchange for a pair of second-round draft picks.

The trade, first reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger, was contingent upon Regehr waiving his no-trade clause to join the Kings.

The 32-year-old agreed, reuniting him with LA head coach Darryl Sutter — the pair went to the 2004 Stanley Cup finals together as members of the Calgary Flames.

In his prime, Regher was one of the NHL’s most effective shutdown defensemen, twice representing Canada at the Winter Olympics.

He was traded from Calgary to Buffalo in in 2011 but never seemed to fit with the Sabres (perhaps a testament to playing the 11 years of his career with the Flames and in the Western Conference.)

Regehr had just 1G-4A-5PTS in 2011-12 and saw his ice time dip to 18:38 per game.

This season, he had 0G-2A-2PTS in 29 games with almost identical TOI.

Regehr promises to fit in well with the Kings, though, reprising the veteran defensive role that Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene provided en route to last year’s Stanley Cup.

Both defensemen have been out of the lineup almost entirely this season — Mitchell has yet to play, Greene appeared just once — and while Greene may return to action, Kings GM Dean Lombardi recently said Mitchell’s return is a “long shot.”

Trade: Blues acquire Bouwmeester from Calgary

Mike Halford

Apr 1, 2013, 9:02 PM EDT

The Calgary Flames continued their fire sale on Monday, sending defenseman Jay Bouwmeester to St. Louis in exchange for the Blues’ first-round pick in 2013, defenseman Mark Cundari and goalie Reta Berra.

The move marks the second significant player Calgary has traded in advance of Wednesday’s trade deadline. Last week, the club shipped longtime captain Jarome Iginla to Pittsburgh.

Bouwmeester was a highly sought-after commodity this season. He’s handled a heavy workload — averaging over 25 minutes per game — and has managed to contribute offensively, leading all Flames defensemen with six goals.

For St. Louis, the move is a bold one. The club currently sits ninth in the Western Conference with 36 points, one back of eighth-place Columbus. (Granted, the Blues have three games in hand.)

Heck, there’s even a clause in the contract outlining what would happen if St. Louis misses the postseason — in the event the Blues miss, Calgary gets St. Louis’ fourth-round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and the first round pick will be deferred to 2014.

It should be noted Bouwmeester has never participated in the postseason over the course of his 10-year career.

Financially, this is a big move for St. Louis.

Bouwmeester has two years left on the five-year, $33.4 million deal he signed in 2009, and carries a $6.68 million annual cap hit. According to Sportsnet’s Mark Spector, Calgary is not retaining any of Bouwmeester’s salary in the deal.

As for the players Calgary’s getting in return? Cundari was an undrafted free agent signed by St. Louis in 2010 that’s currently playing with AHL Peoria, while Berra is a 2006 draftee that’s with Biel in the Swiss A League.

Hawks blow a two goal lead but beat Nashville in the proverbial shootout.

I'm curious on Who the Blues let go after this season. They have alot of free agents to re-sign.
