Healthy Prust eager to contribute for Canadiens

A torn oblique muscle limited Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust to 52 games last season, but he's healthy and itching to get the 2014-15 season underway.

The 30-year-old scored six goals, seven assists and 121 penalty minutes during the regular season and two assists in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

"I definitely want to keep building. Last year was tough with injuries. I want to try and stay injury-free," Prust told the Canadiens website on Sunday. "Stuff happens, though. Some things you can't control, but I want to get back to getting more ice time and being a bigger factor out there. I want to play well defensively, and get back to my game, the style that I've played for many years and for lots of different teams.

Sharks' Burns OK with playing defense again

The San Jose Sharks have decided to move Brent Burns back to defense after playing forward last season, and Burns said Saturday he's fine with it.

"I feel confident I could get 30 goals playing forward, but I also love the challenge of playing D and playing more than 20 minutes a game," Burns told the Sharks website. "I love that challenge. I love being on the ice more. I think you control the game more as a defenseman than you do as a forward. It's hard. Obviously I like both and you have fun playing as a forward too."

Injured Drouin doesn't practice with Lightning

The Tampa Bay Lightning kept rookie Jonathan Drouin out of training camp activities Saturday because of what the team said is an upper-body injury.

Drouin, ranked No. 1 on's list of the Top 60 prospects in the League, is officially listed as day-to-day.

"This is not a long-term thing,"’ coach Jon Cooper told The Tampa Tribune. "For us, his training camp started (with the prospect team) on Sept. 11. He played three games in the rookie tournament, and he’s grinded it out. He got nicked up a little bit, and the one thing is that, this is by no means serious. We expect he’ll be back next week at some point. ... It was a freak thing, so there is no alarm."

Jenner moving to center for Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets will use Boone Jenner at center in their first preseason game, in part because restricted free agent Ryan Johansen is not with the team.

"If Johansen’s here, we may have [Jenner] on the wing but we'd still be trying him at center," coach Todd Richards told the Blue Jackets website Saturday. "You take a player like that, a fierce competitor ... I haven't seen him take a draw yet, but I bet he takes a draw like he plays a game. You better be ready."

Canucks' Lack excited to work alongside Miller

Vancouver Canucks goaltender Eddie Lack probably won't receive as much playing time with Ryan Miller now on the team, but Lack said Saturday he's excited to learn from the veteran and he's "going to try to learn as much as possible from him."

Lack received the bulk of the starts after the Canucks traded Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers in March. The 26-year-old went 16-17-5 with a 2.41 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 41 games.

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic has participated in two days of training camp practice but is not yet cleared to play in games with his surgically repaired left wrist.

"It's been good, it's been better than what I expected, which is obviously a good thing," Lucic said Saturday, according to the Bruins website. "Just seeing my progression over the last two weeks with where it's gone, it's been good."

Short summer doesn't deter Kings

The one downside of being a Stanley Cup champion is an abbreviated summer vacation.

When the Los Angeles Kings take the ice against the San Jose Sharks in their season-opener on Oct. 8, it will be less than four months since they won the Cup by beating the New York Rangers 3-2 in double overtime in Game 5 of the Final.

Bruins rookie Pastrnak leaves practice

David Pastrnak, the Boston Bruins' 2014 first-round draft choice, left the ice and didn't return after he went into the boards during a drill about a half-hour into a scrimmage Saturday.

Pastrnak was able to skate off the ice and into the dressing room on his own.

"Tweaked his shoulder," Bruins coach Claude Julien said following the practice at Ristuccia Arena. "So I don't know how serious it's going to be, but very, very doubtful for tomorrow."
