Quebec's Erne, Duclair allowed to play Sunday

           Adam Erne, Quebec Remparts, QMJHL
After initially suspending top 2013 NHL Draft prospects Adam Erne and Anthony Duclair, Quebec Remparts coach Patrick Roy changed course and inserted both forwards into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

The Journal de Quebec had reported Saturday that Erne and Duclair had been suspended for Sunday's game by the team.

"We believe that we are not all on the same wavelength and what we want is a team concept," Roy told Gilles Moffet of Journal de Quebec. "This is a life lesson for these young people and I hope they will grow out of it. They will not play Sunday, then we'll see."

There was no report as to what persuaded Roy to change his mind.

Jagr has big night in Dallas debut

Eighteen years after Jaromir Jagr shared the NHL scoring lead during a lockout-shortened season, he looks like he could do it again.

The 40-year-old made a big impression on his new home fans by scoring twice and adding a pair of assists in the Dallas Stars' season-opening 4-3 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes.

Jagr scored in each of the first two periods, and his perfect pass set up Loui Eriksson for the game-winning goal with 6:55 remaining in regulation time. The two goals give him 667 for his career, moving him within one of Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille on the all-time list.

Maple Leafs send Rielly to juniors, Connolly to AHL

Defenseman Morgan Rielly will not start the season with the Toronto Maple Leafs and along with forward Matt Frattin was among the team's final cuts to get down to the opening night 23-man roster.

Rielly, the fifth pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, put up 28 points in 33 games this season playing junior hockey for the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League, and will be returned to his junior team.

"Morgan played pretty well in a short camp, but he wasn't given an opportunity to play in [preseason] games," Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis told the National Post. "We need to get ready to play, and it's pretty tough to put an 18-year-old player in the lineup without actually seeing him play."

Veteran forward Tim Connolly has been assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League after clearing waivers. Also assigned there were defenseman Mike Mottau and forward Ryan Hamilton.
