Maple Leafs Kessel, Franson skate briefly: report

Injured forward Phil Kessel and defenseman Cody Franson skated Saturday but their status for the Toronto Maple Leafs season opener Wednesday is unknown.

Kessel, who has a lower-body injury, skated for about 20 minutes Saturday, the Toronto Sun reported.

"With Phil, sometimes the plan is different then ours," coach Randy Carlyle told the newspaper. "He came out, tried it, didn't feel it was 100 percent. ... The idea is that if you don’t practice, you don't play."

Franson skated for the first time since sustaining a knee injury in a preseason game Sept. 26. The regular season begins Oct. 8 against the Montreal Canadiens.

Ducks expect Fowler, Heatley on opening road trip

The Anaheim Ducks expect injured defenseman Cam Fowler and forward Dany Heatley to play at some point during their season-opening road trip next week, coach Bruce Boudreau said Friday.

Fowler was injured at practice Thursday. He had to be helped off the ice and did not put weight on his left leg.

"He’s hopeful to be playing on the trip, so we’ll see how it goes day by day," Boudreau told the Ducks website. "He said he wanted to play on the trip. I don’t really know what that means, whether it’s Thursday or Saturday. He felt good today, but every time I ask a player, they say they feel good, or they feel better. We're anticipating both him and Heatley will play on this trip."

Luongo happy to be back with Panthers

Goaltender Roberto Luongo is in his second stint with the Florida Panthers after being acquired from the Vancouver Canucks in March. He told NHL Live on Friday that there have been a lot of changes to the Panthers' franchise since he was traded to Vancouver in the summer of 2006.

"The only reason I came back was that I felt things were different with the new ownership and their commitment to bringing in some new players and trying to build a winner," he said. "I think we have a good nucleus of players, and we brought in some good veterans -- guys who've won the Stanley Cup. Hopefully we can put things together and make a run for a playoff spot."
