RFA Franson 'might have to consider' Europe: report

Defenseman Cody Franson remains without a contract from the Toronto Maple Leafs and said Friday he might have to consider playing in Europe.

"I honestly didn't believe it would come to this," Franson, a restricted free agent, told Sportsnet.

Franson said he could return to Sweden, where he played 26 games for Brynas prior to the 2012-13 NHL season.

"It's definitely something I might have to consider," Franson said after another skate with the Ryerson Rams. "Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but I was in Sweden last year, and it's not like I haven't been over there before. If it comes down to that, unfortunately, hopefully not, it's an option."

Booth's return to Canucks delayed

Vancouver Canucks forward David Booth was expected to see his first game action since sustaining an ankle injury March 16. But that return has been delayed.

The 28-year-old was considered likely to be in Vancouver's lineup Saturday night when it plays the Edmonton Oilers in a preseason game at Rexall Place, according to the Canucks website. But coach John Tortorella revealed to the Vancouver Province that Booth hurt his groin during the team's game-day skate and will not play.

Sabres search for lines for Foligno, Grigorenko

Entering the 2013-14 season, the Buffalo Sabres already know what to expect from veterans Ryan Miller (strong goaltending), Thomas Vanek (timely scoring) and Steve Ott (agitating opponents).

But when it comes to finding the right spot for young up-and-coming prospects, coach Ron Rolston is tinkering with his lineup.

That will continue to be the case Saturday night when the Sabres take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at First Niagara Center (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, CBC).

Wild's top stars to see first preseason action

Top scorer Zach Parise is just one of the many familiar faces who will make their preseason debut for the Minnesota Wild Saturday night against the Winnipeg Jets. Parise will see his first preseason action at Xcel Energy Center, along with other big-name players like Ryan Suter, captain Mikko Koivu, Jason Pominville and Jonas Brodin.

Parise and Suter were the centerpiece of the team's off-season makeover in 2012, as Minnesota signed the pair to 13-year contracts worth $98 million each. Pominville was acquired from the Buffalo Sabres at last season's Trade Deadline and was immediately placed on the team's top line alongside Parise and Koivu. Saturday night against Winnipeg will be the trio's first opportunity to recapture some of the chemistry they found late last season.

Suter and Brodin, who was one of the League's best rookies in 2012-13, made up the team's top defensive pairing all of last season. So they are expected to shake off some of the rust as well.

With all these high-profile additions to the lineup, Wild coach Mike Yeo said that forwards Matt Cooke, Kyle Brodziak and Torrey Mitchell will get the night off.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
