Top QMJHL prospect Barbashev out at least 10 days

Moncton Wildcats left wing Ivan Barbashev, NHL Central Scouting's only "A"-rated player on the list of top 2014 NHL Draft-eligible players in its preliminary players to watch list for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, will be sidelined at least 10 days after sustaining a lower-body injury on Wednesday.

Barbashev was injured while taking a faceoff in a game against the Saint John Sea Dogs when he attempted to kick the puck but instead caught his skate in a rut. Wildcats coach Darren Rumble said Barbashev "tweaked it a little bit."

"It's a huge loss to be missing him for a couple of days, but that's what happens when somebody goes down," Rumble told NHL.com. "It's an opportunity for someone else to step up."

Kapanen returning to Kalpa lineup

The top 2014 NHL Draft-eligible prospect from Finland, forward Kasperi Kapanen, will return to the lineup for Kalpa in SM-liiga on Tuesday after sitting out the past three games with a lower-body injury.

Kapanen, an "A"-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's preliminary players to watch list of the top prospects from Finland, sustained his injury Sept. 24. According to European Director of Central Scouting, Goran Stubb, Kapanen is expected to resume his role on the team's top line, alongside his father Sami, against HIFK on Tuesday.

Kapanen (5-foot-11, 172 pounds) has a goal and two points in four games for Kalpa in SM-liiga in 2013-14. Barring injury, he'll likely play for Finland at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden. Kapanen had eight points, including a team-leading five goals, for Finland at the 2013 WJC.

Ryan MacInnis hopes to follow in father's footsteps

PITTSBURGH -- Ryan MacInnis is hopeful that he'll one day be able to follow the path of his Hockey Hall of Fame father. The only difference is he'll do so playing at a different position.

Unlike Al MacInnis, a seven-time All-Star defenseman who spent 23 seasons in the League with the St. Louis Blues and Calgary Flames, son Ryan plays center for the Ontario Hockey League's Kitchener Rangers. The younger MacInnis was one of 39 players in attendance here at Consol Energy Center for the morning practice session in preparation for the second annual CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.

He'll skate with Seamus Malone of the Dubuque Fighting Saints in the United States Hockey League and Blake Clarke of the OHL's North Bay Battalion for coach Joe Mullen's team.
