An MRI on the shoulder of Detroit Red Wings centre Pavel Datsyuk has revealed a second-degree separation and the 36-year-old will be sidelined for four to five weeks.
Datsyuk was taken hard into the boards by Penguins defencemanRob Scuderi during the Red Wings' 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday.
"It's going to be around four weeks, give or take, depending on the healing process,'' Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Wednesday.
Holland is optimistic based on the timing of the injury. "The good news is, two weeks of the healing process is going to be during pre-season," he added. "So half his time will be during training camp. That's at least good."
This is the third major injury for Datsyuk in the the last year. He missed seven games last season with a concussion and 30 more with a right knee injury.
Datsyuk is heading into his 13th NHL season.

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin is out three to four weeks with a broken right thumb.
The team said in a statement that injury occurred Thursday after a collision in the corner during two-on-two work at rookie camp practice. X-rays confirmed the fracture on Monday.
The injury will likely keep the 19-year-old out of the entire pre-season and part of the regular season.
The Lightning start the 2014-15 season Oct. 9 on the road against Florida.
Drouin, from Ste-Agathe, Que., was selected third overall by the Lightning in the 2013 NHL draft.

Stephan injured is not what we need.  We're already thin at C.

Off topic but...

I am heading to my first hockey game of the season tomorrow. Corpus Christi Icerays vs. Lone Star Brahmas. If it all works out, I will be attending a college game (Texas Tech vs. Texas), several NAHL games (CC Icerays) an AHL game (Texas Stars vs. Rockford Icehogs) and an NHL game (Dallas Stars vs. Chicago Blackhawks)this year.

You're going to have a great time at all the games. Hockey is great to watch on TV but is so much better in person. Interesting that your AHL game will feature future Stars vs future Blackhawks before you get to see the current Stars vs Blackhawks.

The Maple Leafs got good news and bad news on the injury front Monday.

David Booth suffered a fractured foot after blocking a shot in Sunday’s game against the Sabres, and is out at least four weeks.

Cody Franson fell awkwardly in the same game and his knee will need further evaluation.

David Clarkson hopes to be back this Friday after suffering a broken orbital bone during a fight in last Friday’s game against Buffalo. There was concern that he’d miss a lot more time.

Clarkson left the game after a bruising fight with Cody McCormick.

“We were on the power play,” Clarkson said. “I know what he was trying to do and we’ve fought before. Just one of those things where it went wrong. But I was getting ready for the season and I’m still getting ready — I want to play that game one.”

The Boston Bruins signed a couple of players that played important roles last season.


from csnne.com:




The Bruins resolved their last two question marks of training camp Monday when they signed Torey Krug and Reilly Smith to one-year bridge contracts worth $1.4 million apiece.

The signings end the only two "holdouts" of the Peter Chiarelli era, and bring back into the fold a pair of talented players who had little leverage going into negotiations as Group 2 entry level restricted free agents. The team-friendly deals for both players could presumably allow the Bruins to start the season without making a trade (thanks to Marc Savard being placed on LTI), but it's likely Chiarelli will want to make at least one move to clear some cap space.

Krug's deal especially is a bargain for the B's, considering that he made roughly $1.75 million in salary and bonus money last season -- which makes this agreement, in essence, a pay cut -- and that restricted free-agent defenseman like Danny DeKeyser, Justin Scultz and Ryan Ellis signed richer contracts in the offseason.

Krug led all rookie D-men with 40 points last season, and finished fourth in Calder Trophy voting. Smith topped 20 goals and 50 points and established himself as a top-6 forward during a breakout season.

Krug and Smith were presumably uncomfortable with players like David Warsofsky and Simon Gagne playing in their spots now that the exhibition season has started, and probably were itching to sign after missing so much camp. The Bruins had all the leverage in negotiations and used it to get the players signed on what we can assume was very close to their terms.

One would now expect both players to do the same next season, when the leverage shoe in negotiations begins moving to the other foot.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Immediately after the signings the Bruins released Ville Leino from his professional tryout contract.

So who else stays and who goes?
Campbell? Kelly?  Does Simon Gagne survive.  I think now that Leino has been released Gagne makes it.  Bartkowski, Boychuk, Miller.  Thinking 2 gotta move on.
Thinking Kelly, Bartkowski but where and for what?

I'm guessing McQuaid and either Kelly or Campbell. Trading away Bartkowski doesn't really save very much but he could still be on the move packaged up with somebody else. I would think trading away Johnny Rocket is the last thing Chiarelli wants to do. As for Gagne - I didn't think he was going to stick around anyway and now it's even less likely.

- New Jersey released D Tomas Kaberle and W Ruslan Fedotenko from their professional tryout contracts on Tuesday. This comes one day after the Devils released D Mike Komisarek from his professional tryout contract.

- Edmonton signed training camp standout W Vladimir Tkachev to a 3-year contract worth $ 1.725 million. The 5'9" 141 lb Russian was not drafted in 2014 despite being the 60th ranked European by NHL Central Scouting Services. Tkachev had 10 goals and 20 assists in just 20 regular season games last year with Moncton in the QMJHL. He also had 7 goals and 2 assists in 6 QMJHL Playoff games.

Or maybe not.


from tsn.ca:

Vladimir Tkachev's entry level contract signed with the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday has been ruled ineligible by the National Hockey League.

According to NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, Tkachev wasn't qualified to sign a contract as he is still eligible for June's NHL Entry Draft.

Players who go undrafted are eligible to sign only if they played a full year in North America. While waiting for his transfer, Tkachev played two games with Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League and spent the remainder of the season with the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Tkachev will go back into the draft after this season.

The 18-year-old appeared in three preseason games with the Oilers, posting three assists and a plus three rating.

The native of Omsk, Russia also played in the 2013 Subway Super Series for Team Russia, marking the second straight year he has represented Russia in the Super Series. Tkachev appeared in six games tallying four points (2G, 2A), a plus one rating and two penalty minutes.
