Hossa, Shaw, Frolik in for Blackhawks

After getting tough news on Patrick Sharp, who will miss 3-4 weeks with an upper-body injury, there was a bit of good for the Chicago Blackhawks, who announced forwards Marian Hossa, Andrew Shaw and Michael Frolik will be available for Friday's game against the Colorado Avalanche (9 p.m. ET, NHLN-US).

Hossa was a late scratch from Wednesday's game against the Avalanche due to an upper-body injury, but told the Chicago Tribune it was not concussion related.

"It was something else," Hossa said following the Blackhawks' morning skate. "Right now I feel much better and sometimes only two days just not practicing [and] taking off helps. I feel much better [Friday] in the morning skate and I should be ready to play."

Wild activate Clutterbuck, make goalie moves

Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck was activated off injured reserve Friday, while the club placed goaltender Darcy Kuemper on IR and recalled goalie Matt Hackett from its American Hockey League affiliate in Houston.

Clutterbuck hasn't played since being injured in a Feb. 21 game against Edmonton, on a play in which Oilers forward Taylor Hall received a kneeing major and game misconduct, and later was suspended for two games. Clutterbuck has two goals and four points in 16 games this season.

Kuemper, 22, was recalled when Josh Harding had to be placed on IR due to symptoms from multiple sclerosis and made his NHL debut Feb. 12 in Vancouver. In four games (three starts), he is 1-2-0 with a 2.22 goals-against average and .924 save percentage.

Hackett, 23, played in 12 games for the Wild last season, going 3-6-0 with a 2.38 GAA and .922 save percentage. In 42 AHL games, he is 19-19-3, with a 2.56 GAA and .910 save percentage.

Bruins hoping to add Swedish star Soderberg

The Boston Bruins are close to making themselves a better team -- and it may not be through the trade market, although GM Peter Chiarelli has not ruled that out either.

Thursday night, Chiarelli confirmed to the Boston Herald a report by TSN that the team is close to bringing Swedish star Carl Soderberg to the club.

The Bruins have owned Soderberg's rights since 2007 when his rights were acquired in a trade with St. Louis that landed the Blues goaltender Hannu Toivonen.

Quote of the Day

I think that’s the sign of a good team. When you don’t play well, and you don’t stay focused and you don’t do the intangibles that it takes, you still win the hockey game.
