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 "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.

Sabres' Sam Reinhart to play in season opener

Buffalo Sabres center Sam Reinhart, No. 4 on the Top 60 prospect ranking, will remain with the Sabres for their season opener Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets at First Niagara Center.

Sabres coach Ted Nolan made the announcement after practice Monday.

"I can't predict how long [Reinhart] will be with us, but in training camp you just want to make sure you're doing the right thing with young players for their development," Nolan said. "We're also evaluating Nikita [Zadorov]. He's physically big enough and needs to work on parts of his game; we'll evaluate that decision."

Reinhart was chosen No. 2 by the Sabres in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Nurse still with Oilers, hopes to stick with team

Edmonton Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse didn't make it until the final week of September last year, when he was hoping to make the team as an 18-year-old.

But with the Oilers four days away from opening the 2014-15 season against the Calgary Flames at Rexall Place, the first-round pick from 2013 (No. 7) is still with Edmonton and could be on the verge of making his NHL debut.

Blackhawks' Sharp sad to see Leddy traded: report

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp didn't mince words when asked about the trade Saturday that sent defenseman Nick Leddy to the New York Islanders.

"It [stinks]. It [stinks] to see Nick leave the squad," Sharp said Sunday, according to CSN Chicago. "He's well-liked in the locker room. Everyone knows the quality player he is and the quality person. He's going to have a heck of a chance to become the star in the League we all think he's going to be. We've said it a thousand times – it's professional sports, it's part of the gig. You lose players every season and I think we've come to accept it."

Flyers' Simmonds 'up in the air' for opener: report

Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was wearing a walking boot on his left foot while watching practice Sunday in Orleans, Mass. His status for the regular-season opener against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday at TD Garden (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN) remains in question.

"Fifty-fifty? I can't put a number on it," Flyers coach Craig Berube told when asked about the chances that Simmonds would play. "He hasn't practiced. It depends. Everybody is different.

"Right now, he's out. And he hasn't practiced, so we'll see about [Monday]. If he can get on the ice [Monday] and then maybe practice the next day, maybe I'll consider putting him in [Wednesday]. I don't know. Right now it's up in the air."

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
