Flyers' Giroux shooting for first time since surgery

Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux made another step in his recovery from surgery to repair two tendons in his right index finger Friday, shooting pucks for the first time since Aug. 15 surgery.

Giroux had injured his hand in a golf outing when a club sliced two tendons in his finger, and after surgery the same day, his prognosis for recovery was five to six weeks. But during his on-ice session Thursday he handled pucks and made some passes, and Friday saw him start shooting pucks.

"When I got on the ice I started to stickhandle and it was feeling really good," Giroux told reporters in Philadelphia. "I know I can't be rushing it, [but] I really wasn't shooting hard. I was just trying to see what I can do."

Stars' Peverley out following heart procedure

The Dallas Stars announced Friday that center Rich Peverley will miss three weeks after having a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat. 

"It turns out he had an 'a-fib' [atrial fibrillation] condition," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "He'll be out three weeks and should be available close to the start of the season. He might miss one or two games."

Nill said the issue was caught by the team's training staff, which noticed an irregularity in Peverley's EKG during his physical.

Report: Thomas 'not likely' to join Blue Jackets

The agent for free agent goaltender Tim Thomas informed the Columbus Dispatch on Friday that his client is "not likely" to join the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"We haven't even really discussed it with the Blue Jackets," Markus Lehto, who represents Thomas with ACME World Sports, told the newspaper's Aaron Portzline. "But he does have offers on the table, and there has been interest from clubs. It's just finding the right situation for him."

Thomas, who sat out last season, reportedly is considering an offer to join the Florida Panthers on a professional tryout.

Report: Cowen talks with Senators stall

The Ottawa Sun reported Friday that negotiations between restricted free agent defenseman Jared Cowen and the Ottawa Senators have reached a stalemate.

The report said the Senators have offered Cowen a four-year contract worth $2.8 million per season.

Senators assistant general manager Tim Murray is quoted in the newspaper saying the team offered Cowen a fair proposal and the player's camp is asking for too much. Murray said the team offered an eight-year contract and the sides are discussing the four-year offer.

Rangers' Staal says eye injury 'way better'

New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said Thursday he is entering training camp much improved from an eye injury than when he tried to come back in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season.

"I'm more adapted to it and a lot more used to it," Staal said. "The vision hasn't changed much, but the perception, what I'm seeing on the ice, has [gotten] way better than when I was trying to come back in the playoffs a few months ago, so that's a big step for me."

Hodgson happy to be at Sabres camp

Armed with a new six-year contract, Cody Hodgson found himself in a familiar spot Thursday at Buffalo Sabres training camp: on a line with Thomas Vanek.

Buffalo's top two scorers from last season skated with Marcus Foligno.

"We like [Vanek and Hodgson] together for sure. They were good last year," coach Ron Rolston told the team's website. "I think Cody can make plays, really good vision plays and obviously [Vanek's] a good finisher.

"Right now we've got Marcus there to provide some heavy hockey hopefully on the wing, hopefully if Marcus can come in and continue to play that way, be physical and make some space for those guys."

Alfredsson, Weiss on same line at Red Wings camp

Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss skated together on a line with Johan Franzen when the Detroit Red Wings opened training camp Thursday.

Alfredsson and Weiss each signed this offseason as a free agent, leaving longtime relationships with their former team, the Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers, respectively.

For Alfredsson, the change did have some familiarity.

"It's not too different," Alfredsson said, according to The Associated Press. "I see a lot of similarities. I don't know if it's because [Senators coach Paul MacLean] in Ottawa was part of this organization for a long time and applied some of the ideas with some of his own. It's not far off. ... It looks like I should have a pretty easy time adjusting."

Cleary returns to Red Wings on one-year contract

It turns out Daniel Cleary isn't leaving the Detroit Red Wings after all.

Cleary signed a one-year contract with the team Thursday after reports had him joining the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I'm sorry to everybody for the drama that was created. It's just not my style," Cleary told the team's website after arriving in Traverse City, Mich. for training camp. "Social media at times can be frustrating, but that’s the world we live in and I apologize to all of the writers, the Philly writers, but I'm a Red Wing and I'm proud to be a Red Wing."

Lupul, Orr among four Leafs missing from practice

The Toronto Maple Leafs took the ice for the second day of training camp without four of their players. Right wing Colton Orr is out with a leg bone bruise and won't skate for a week. Left wing Joffrey Lupul is day-to-day with back spasms.

Traded to the Leafs from the Anaheim Ducks in February 2011, Lupul missed nearly two months last season with a fractured forearm sustained just three games into 2012-13. Orr signed a four-year, $4 million contract with Toronto in 2009.

Coach Randy Carlyle said that Lupul experienced tightness on Tuesday and wasn't cleared medically to be on the ice, but doesn't believe the injury is serious.

"He's had some back issues before, so we don't think it's anything longterm," Carlyle said. "It's just precautionary measures to make sure he's 100 percent. Same thing with Colton Orr."

Prospects Kenny Ryan and Matt Finn, who sustained a shoulder injury at rookie camp, also were not on the skate list.
