Kings receive logo-shaped championship rings

To the victors go the spoils, as well as some pretty impressive jewelry.

Los Angeles Kings players on Monday received their jewel-encrusted championship rings, made by famed jeweler Tiffany and Co. The face of the ring features the Kings logo comprised of 136 round diamonds among pave-set black spinels. STANLEY CUP is engraved above the logo, CHAMPIONS below it. Each player's name and number is on one side of the ring, while the other side features the Stanley Cup and 16:10, he Kings' record in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Inside the ring is the score of ever Kings playoff game from last season.

It's the second time in three seasons the Kings have taken home the Stanley Cup. Their run started with them becoming the fourth team in League history to rally from a 3-0 series deficit when they won four straight to eliminate the San Jose Sharks. In the second round they survived elimination against their Southern California neighbor Anaheim Ducks by winning a one-goal game in Game 6 at home and then winning Game 7 in Anaheim. In a memorable Western Conference Final against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Kings again won the last two games, including Game 7 in overtime. Then in the Final they beat the New York Rangers in five games.

Blue Jackets center Dubinsky out indefinitely

Columbus Blue Jackets center Brandon Dubinsky was placed on injured reserve Tuesday and is out indefinitely because of a lower-body injury.

Dubinsky was third on the Blue Jackets last season with 50 points, and his 34 assists were a career-best. Dubinsky also was tied for second on the team in scoring during the Stanley Cup Playoffs with six points in six games.

The injury to Dubinsky means the Blue Jackets will be missing three of their top forwards for the season opener Thursday against the Buffalo Sabres. Also missing from the lineup will be Boone Jenner (hand) and Nathan Horton (back). In addition, top-line center Ryan Johansen, who signed a three-year contract Monday, is questionable for Thursday; Johansen has to take his physical and clear immigration, and Richards said he wants to assess Johansen's conditioning before committing to playing him.

Roster update: Nylander among Maple Leafs cuts

William Nylander, the Toronto Maple Leafs' first pick (No. 8) at the 2014 NHL Draft, was one of four players cut from the Maple Leafs roster Monday.

Nylander, No. 15 on NHL.com's ranking of the Top 60 prospects in the League, can be returned to Modo in the Swedish Hockey League, or could play for the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League. The Mississauga Steelheads of the Ontario Hockey League own his Canadian Hockey League rights, but prior to the draft Nylander said he would return to Sweden rather than play junior hockey.

The Maple Leafs also placed forwards Frazer McLaren and Colton Orr, and defenseman Korbinian Holzer, on waivers with the purpose of assigning them to the American Hockey League.

Flyers' Simmonds returns to practice: report

Philadelphia Flyers right wing Wayne Simmonds returned to practice Monday in Orleans, Mass.

The Flyers have been spending time in the town near Cape Cod prior to opening the regular season Oct. 8 at the Boston Bruins.

"Just in case I am able to go Wednesday, you want to get today in," Simmonds, who went through about 75 minutes of practice, told CSNPhilly.com. "Get that hard skate out of the way, then go Tuesday which obviously won’t be as hard for me. Especially, at the end, I doubt I’ll get bagged, especially, if I am in the lineup … I thought it was important to get on the ice today.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.

— Lightning captain Steven Stamkos on playing in his first Stanley Cup Final
