Commodore released from P.T.O. by Bulldogs

The Hamilton Bulldogs announced Wednesday they have released veteran defenseman Mike Commodore from his Professional Try-Out Contract with the team.

The 33-year-old has played for seven teams over 11 NHL seasons, including the 2011-12 campaign, which he split between the Detroit Red Wings and Tampa Bay Lightning.

In 17 games with the Bulldogs, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, Commodore registered two assists and 26 penalty minutes. He was invited to Canadiens training camp last week, where he said his wish was to "Come here, move my feet, play well in the intersquad scrimmage and see where it goes."

Flyers forward Hartnell hurting

The Philadelphia Flyers practiced Wednesday without top-line forward Scott Hartnell, who reportedly sustained a foot injury during Tuesday's 3-0 loss at the New Jersey Devils.

According to CSNPhilly.com, Hartnell took a shot off his left foot at 6:53 of the third period and was seen walking gingerly after the game.

If Hartnell, who tied for sixth in the League last season with 37 goals, is unavailable for Thursday's game against the New York Rangers, it could put a struggling team already in deeper trouble. Philadelphia has just three goals in three games and entered the season weakened by the offseason departures of James van Riemsdyk and Jaromir Jagr, as well as the wrist injury sidelining Danny Briere.

Red Wings lose Ian White for 2-3 weeks

The Detroit Red Wings lost another player to injury Tuesday in a loss to the Dallas Stars when defenseman Ian White sustained a severe cut above his knee.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the media White could miss two to three weeks. This is the latest setback for a team that's already missing defensemen Jakub Kindl (groin), Jonathan Ericsson (hip) and Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder).

Holland signed free-agent defenseman Kent Huskins on Tuesday in an attempt to ease the losses on the back end. According to The Detroit News, Colaiacovo is expected to be out up to a month. Kindl should return Friday against the Minnesota Wild, and Ericsson is expected to return soon.

Additionally, the Red Wings expect forwards Todd Bertuzzi (flu) and Darren Helm (back) and goalie Jonas Gustavsson (groin) to return Friday against the Minnesota Wild.

Mechanical issue with plane keeps Stars grounded

The Dallas Stars' stay in Detroit lasted a bit longer than expected after a mechanical problem with the team's plane.

According to a press release sent out Wednesday morning by Stars coordinator of communications Greg Ramirez, "The problem occurred shortly after de-icing, as a valve for one of the engines malfunctioned. As a precaution, the decision was made not to fly out and the team stayed at a hotel near Detroit."

Ramirez stressed that everyone was safe, and the Stars later added via their official Twitter account that they will be flying home Wednesday at 2 p.m. CT. They won't practice Wednesday as originally planned. The Stars play host to the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night.

The Stars got a pair of Michael Ryder goals Tuesday night to pick up a 2-1 win over the Red Wings and improve to 2-1-0 on the season.

Report: Islanders' Niederreiter requests trade

According to a report from ESPN New York, Nino Niederreiter of the New York Islanders has requested a trade.

The fifth pick of the 2010 NHL Draft reportedly is unhappy with his current situation and feels he would be better served playing somewhere else.

"Any conversations I have regarding players, that remains confidential," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said.

The 20-year-old had one goal in 55 NHL games last season. In 39 games with Bridgeport of the American Hockey League this season, Niederreiter has 19 goals and 17 assists.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
