Ryan leaves Senators scrimmage after collision

Ottawa Senators forward Bobby Ryan left a training camp scrimmage Sunday in the second period following a collision with center Kyle Turris behind the net. He was kept off the ice for precautionary reasons and will not play in either of the Senators' preseason games Monday against the New York Islanders in St. John's, Newfoundland, according to the Ottawa Sun.

"It was a broken play," Ryan told the Senators website. "[Turris] was circling one way behind the net and I was circling the other. I think we both had a pretty good head of steam and never saw each other; just took it right in the chin a little bit. It's alarming, I guess, is the right word for it. They were very, very cautious with it and just said let's calm things down right away."

"When I talked to everybody real quickly they said it wasn't worth it to go back out in those conditions. Let's just call it a day and re-evaluate [Monday]."

Healthy Prust eager to contribute for Canadiens

A torn oblique muscle limited Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust to 52 games last season, but he's healthy and itching to get the 2014-15 season underway.

The 30-year-old scored six goals, seven assists and 121 penalty minutes during the regular season and two assists in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

"I definitely want to keep building. Last year was tough with injuries. I want to try and stay injury-free," Prust told the Canadiens website on Sunday. "Stuff happens, though. Some things you can't control, but I want to get back to getting more ice time and being a bigger factor out there. I want to play well defensively, and get back to my game, the style that I've played for many years and for lots of different teams.

Sharks' Burns OK with playing defense again

The San Jose Sharks have decided to move Brent Burns back to defense after playing forward last season, and Burns said Saturday he's fine with it.

"I feel confident I could get 30 goals playing forward, but I also love the challenge of playing D and playing more than 20 minutes a game," Burns told the Sharks website. "I love that challenge. I love being on the ice more. I think you control the game more as a defenseman than you do as a forward. It's hard. Obviously I like both and you have fun playing as a forward too."

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.

— Jaromir Jagr after making his Panthers debut in a win against the Sabres on Saturday
