Bouchard clears waivers; Strome next for Islanders?

New York Islanders forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard cleared waivers Tuesday and was loaned to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League, the team announced.

Bouchard has nine points in 28 games in his first season with the Islanders; he signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the team in July.

The Islanders could recall forward Ryan Strome from the AHL. Strome, the fifth pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, leads the AHL with 33 points in 23 games. The hope is he can spark a team that is winless in 10 straight (0-8-2) heading into their game Tuesday at the San Jose Sharks.

Orpik returned from the hospital and will travel with the team back to Pittsburgh.

Thornton will have an in-person supplementary disciplinary hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for his actions.

Young players focus for Red Wings, Panthers

With captain Henrik Zetterberg still out with a back injury and forward Pavel Datsyuk not cleared to play after sustaining a concussion, the Detroit Red Wings will again rely on their top prospects when they face another youthful team, the Florida Panthers, Saturday at Joe Louis Arena.

Datsyuk has missed six games but is expected back in the lineup Tuesday when Detroit completes the home-and-home with Florida and starts a two-game road trip. Zetterberg has missed two games but was at practice Saturday and praised the young Red Wings who have picked up the offensive slack.

That group is headed by forwards Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist, who were members of the Grand Rapids team that won the Calder Cup last summer. The pair have found chemistry with the Red Wings and combined for three points Friday in a 3-1 win against the New Jersey Devils. Tatar has four goals in his past five games.

"Guys are having an opportunity to play and they've been doing well. I think Tatar and Gus do great stuff all the time they're on the ice," Zetterberg told the Red Wings website. "Obviously you don't want to see injuries, but it's how you play through that as a team, sometimes it will make teams stronger."

Maple Leafs put Bozak on IR; Seguin back for Stars

The Toronto Maple Leafs placed center Tyler Bozak (oblique strain) on injured reserve Thursday. An MRI exam for Bozak revealed the injury, and coach Randy Carlyle told reporters at the morning skate it will keep him out for an "extended period of time."

Bozak was injured during a 4-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. He recently returned from a hamstring injury that cost him 12 games. He has 11 points, a plus-5 rating and is averaging 21:04 of ice time in 16 games.

The injuries continue to pile up around the Maple Leafs, who play host to the Dallas Stars on Thursday. Although Phil Kessel (undisclosed) will play, Joffrey Lupul (groin strain) and Dave Bolland (severed Achilles tendon) are out. Colton Orr had a procedure done on a bursa sac in his elbow and was placed on IR.

"It's very frustrating and disappointing that we're going through the rash of injuries that we are now," Carlyle said. "But it's really not time to talk about the injured players. It's time to talk about the players that we have in our lineup; there's opportunities made available."

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
