Sabres' Foligno eager to test shoulder

Buffalo Sabres forward Marcus Foligno was hampered for most of last season by a shoulder injury. He's hoping offseason surgery and a summer of rehab will put him at full strength for the 2014-15 season.

Foligno told the Sabres website he's eager to test the shoulder in game action.

"I'd like to say I'm stronger than I was before, but you can only really know that until you get into a game situation," he said. "It feels good to get some bumps out there and starting working with the guys and get physical again."

"In today's world I think there's very, very few people that come to camp out of shape, so they're ready to go at the drop of the puck. We've been working pretty hard on our systems all week."

Flames' Bennett practices, Backlund remains out

Calgary Flames center Sam Bennett, the fourth player taken in the 2014 NHL Draft, skated during a practice session Monday. It was his first time on the ice with the main group at training camp.

Bennett, No. 8 on NHL.com's Top 60 prospect ranking, had been out with a groin injury.

The 18-year-old forward said the injury likely was a result of him pushing too hard too early in the season.

"I think it's just probably a little overuse," he told the team's website. "I've got a good program now that I'm definitely going to be aware of my groin."

Lightning's Stamkos feeling good after return to ice

After he was held out Sunday because of a scheduled off day, Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos returned to the ice Monday to skate with Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan in the team's second Blue vs. White intrasquad scrimmage.

Stamkos had a shot on goal during the scrimmage. Lightning coach Jon Cooper was encouraged with what he saw from the Lightning captain, who missed 45 games last season with a broken tibia.

"There's no sense to put more burden than he has to have," Cooper told the Lightning website. "We're really happy with where he's at. Clearly, he's got much more jump, confidence than he ever had during that last stretch of the year when he came back after the injury."

Lightning's Drouin could miss at least another week

Tampa Bay Lightning rookie forward Jonathan Drouin could miss at least another week with an upper-body injury, coach Jon Cooper said Monday.

Cooper said Drouin skated on his own before the rest of the team hit the ice. He said Drouin was scheduled for further medical evaluation later Monday.

"You'll have a much clearer indication, as will we, to find out where he's at," Cooper said. "Because I don't know if he saw much progress. We'll find out when he sees the doc."

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
