Penguins' Crosby to make preseason debut Monday

Sidney Crosby will make his preseason debut Monday night when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Minnesota Wild, the team said Sunday.

Crosby was scheduled to play his first preseason game Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets, but he missed the home game to fly home to Nova Scotia after the death of his grandmother. He has been hampered during training camp by an undisclosed injury that the team said is unrelated to the wrist injury he suffered in March.

Forward Pascal Dupuis, who had season-ending knee surgery in February, is also scheduled to make his preseason debut against the Wild, according to the lineup posted on the team website.

Pastrnak returns to practice for Bruins

David Pastrnak, the Boston Bruins' top pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, took part in practice on Sunday at TD Garden for the first time since injuring his shoulder on the second day of training camp.

Pastrnak was off the ice for four days following the injury. He started skating again last Wednesday.

"He skated with us, but he's not cleared yet for contract or anything like that so we've got to wait for him to be cleared," Bruins coach Claude Julien said following practice.

Rangers' injuries could give Hayes chance at center

Forward Kevin Hayes, bidding to make the New York Rangers roster after signing as a free agent this summer, practiced at wing on Sunday, but he could find himself seeing more time at center as the result of injuries to veterans Matthew Lombardi and Ryan Malone.

"Being a versatile player can never hurt you," Hayes, who played plenty of wing at Boston College, where he spent the past four seasons, said according to the Rangers website. "Whether you're playing center or wing, you still go out there, try your hardest, try and show the coaches what I can bring to this team. Whether it's going to be on right wing, that's the case."

Red Wings' Nyquist escapes serious injury: report

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist has soreness but no significant injury as the result of a knee-on-knee hit in the final minute of a game Saturday against the Boston Bruins, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"It looked scary at the time but the initial word is that it looks like a day-to-day, short-term injury," general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press on Sunday. He said Nyquist had been thoroughly examined by team doctors.

Nyquist emerged last season with 28 goals in 57 regular-season games. His offense becomes even more important to the Red Wings with center Pavel Datsyuk out 4-5 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Minnesota Wild forward Thomas Vanek is scheduled to make his preseason home debut Monday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Vanek scored in a preseason game against the Penguins last week in Pittsburgh, but came out of it a little banged up and sat out a home game Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets.

"I'm used to putting new jerseys on the last 12 months, but once you do it the first time at home, it’s always pretty cool," Vanek told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
