Canadiens goalie Fucale returned to junior team

The Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday returned goaltender Zachary Fucale to his junior team, the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Fucale was a second-round pick (No. 36) at the 2013 NHL Draft, and the first goaltender selected. He is No. 57 on the NHL.com Top 60 prospect ranking.

Last season Fucale led the QMJHL in wins (36), goals-against average (2.26), and was tied for second with six shutouts. He also had a 2.42 GAA and .902 save percentage in five games for Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship. Fucale has a chance to return as the starting goalie for Canada at the 2015 WJC, which will be played in Toronto and Montreal.

Penguins' Crosby, Kunitz practice; Kapanen to debut

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and forward Chris Kunitz each practiced Tuesday.

It was Crosby's first practice since Friday, the opening day of training camp, when he wasn't scheduled to skate due to an unspecified injury.

Crosby said Tuesday the reason he didn't practice the past few days wasn't because he had a setback, but because he is taking things day-to-day.

Crosby skated with players who will not be participating in the Penguins' preseason game Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Kunitz, also out with an unspecified injury, skated with a group of injured Penguins and later returned to the ice to practice with Crosby and others not in the lineup Tuesday.

Lightning's Drouin out 3-4 weeks with thumb fracture

The Tampa Bay Lightning confirmed reports that forward Jonathan Drouin will be out 3-4 weeks with a fracture in his right thumb.

The Lightning had held Drouin out of training camp activities over the weekend because of what the team said was an upper-body injury.

Drouin got bumped during drills Thursday and fell on his hand, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Drouin didn't think the injury was that bad originally, but told the Lightning about it Friday after their skate.

Sabres' Reinhart, Lemieux excited for home debuts

Buffalo Sabres forward Sam Reinhart makes his First Niagara Center debut Tuesday, and the second pick of the 2014 NHL Draft couldn't be more thrilled.

Reinhart played his first NHL preseason game Sunday as the Sabres lost 1-0 to the Washington Capitals. He saw nearly 17 minutes of ice time and won 60 percent of his faceoffs. He had one hit, one blocked shot and one takeaway. Reinhart did not record a shot on goal and was on the ice for the only goal of the game, scored by the Capitals' Andre Burakovsky.

"I felt more comfortable as the last game went on, and I'm really excited for [Tuesday]," Reinhart said.

He's not the only new face on the Sabres feeling some butterflies. Coach Ted Nolan announced 2014 second-round pick (No. 31) Brendan Lemieux and free-agent signings Brian Gionta and Josh Gorges also would play Tuesday against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes. Nolan said Gionta, Gorges and Matt Moulson will be the alternate captains for the game. The Sabres have not had a captain since Steve Ott was traded to the St. Louis Blues in February.

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."

Quote of the Day

We never really stopped believing in ourselves. We were hearing a lot of things about our team in the regular season. Seems like we put things back together at the right time and we're back in the finals with this group. We know what we have in this room, we believe in each other, we believe in the organization and it really matter what other people say.
