Germany’s Draisaitl suspended for hit on Copp

Germany captain Leon Draisaitl was suspended by the IIHF for one game for a hit from behind on the United States’ Andrew Copp during the teams’ game Sunday.

Draisaitl sat out Germany’s game Monday against the Czech Republic.

Copp was pursuing a puck in the Germany end 10 seconds into the second period when Draisaitl hit him from behind, driving him head-first into the boards. Draisaitl was assessed a major penalty for checking from behind and a game misconduct.

Draisaitl, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft who plays for the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League, had two assists in Germany’s first three games.

Komisarek to play for Hurricanes vs. Maple Leafs

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Mike Komisarek will finally receive an opportunity to play against his former team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, on Sunday at Air Canada Centre.

Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller kept Komisarek out of the lineup Oct. 17 in Toronto, the first game between the teams this season, telling reporters Sunday he didn't think it was the ideal time to play him there so soon.

"We just said, 'Hey, we want to go step by step with you this year and regain your confidence and grow as a player,'" Muller said. "He's been a great pro and handled all the sitting out and healthy scratches well."

Penguins' Dupuis needs ACL surgery

It was a mixed bag for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, as defenseman Brooks Orpik and forward Tanner Glass were activated off injured reserve and appear set to play Friday against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

However, forward Pascal Dupuis, who left the Penguins' game against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 23 after just two shifts, needs surgery to repair an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. The injury could sideline him for the remainder of the season.

"Pascal Dupuis will be going for ACL knee surgery in a couple of weeks and is out indefinitely," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. "The timetable is likely that he'll be out for the remainder of the season but we'll see after the surgery in a couple weeks."

Dupuis had seven goals and 20 points while playing in all 39 games this season. He scored 20 goals in 48 games last season and has shown the ability to play anywhere from a top-line role with Sidney Crosby to more of a checking-line assignment.

"There's a lot that he brings," Bylsma said of Dupuis. "He's also a big part of that dressing room. That is part of what we'll miss from Pascal."

Predators' Jones expects to play against Bruins

Nashville Predators rookie defenseman Seth Jones expects to be in the lineup Monday when his team faces the visiting Boston Bruins.

Jones sustained a cut near his left eye when he was hit in the face by a deflected puck during the Predators’ game Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens.

“I am pretty lucky,” Jones told the Tennessean. “The doctor said it was probably the best spot cut-wise for it to happen. When it happened I was feeling around it. I knew it wasn’t around [the eye], so it got a little scary that it was right on the eye.”

Lightning without Brewer as they visit Panthers

The Tampa Bay Lightning will look for their third straight win when they play their cross-state rival, the Florida Panthers, on Monday.

They'll have to do it without defenseman Eric Brewer, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Brewer has seven assists and a plus-3 rating while averaging 16:59 of ice time per game.

In his absence Lightning coach Jon Cooper changed two of his defense pairings during the team's morning skate, pairing Sami Salo with Mark Barberio and Victor Hedman with Andrej Sustr. The only pairing to remain the same was Matthew Carle with Radko Gudas.

Ben Bishop was the first goalie off the ice following the Lightning’s morning skate, which likely means he’ll be the starter in goal Monday.

In the Panthers net will be Scott Clemmensen, according to the Miami Herald. Clemmensen, Jacob Markstrom and Tim Thomas all were on the ice during the morning skate, with Thomas and Clemmensen taking the bulk of the work. However, Thomas remains on injured reserve with a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
