Blackhawks call up Pirri, send down Hayes

The Chicago Blackhawks announced late Friday that they have recalled forward Brandon Pirri from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League. The team also assigned forward Jimmy Hayes to their AHL affiliate.

A second-round pick (No. 59) in 2009, Pirri led the IceHogs in scoring last season, recording 75 points in 78 games. In seven career games with the Blackhawks, he has recorded no goals and two assists. He was expected to compete in training camp for the team's second-line center job, but was sent down by Chicago just days before the start of the season.

The 6-foot-6, 221-pound Hayes played in two games to start the 2013-14 season, recording no points and one shot. In 43 career games with Chicago, he has six goals and 13 points.

Clutterbuck to make debut for Islanders

The New York Islanders announced Friday that offseason acquisition Cal Clutterbuck will be in the lineup Friday night when they face the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Clutterbuck suffered a lacerated leg during a preseason game against the Calgary Flames on Sept. 17 and was originally slated to miss 4-6 weeks.

Clutterbuck was acquired from the Minnesota Wild, along with a third-round pick, at the 2013 NHL Draft in exchange for right wing Nino Niederreiter. The 25-year-old saw his offensive production dip last season with four goals and six assists in 42 games, but he did finish in the top 10 in the NHL with 155 hits.

Coyotes shake up lineup after consecutive losses

After losing the first two games of a season-long five-game road trip by a combined score of 10-2, the Phoenix Coyotes are shaking up their lineup just three games into the 2013-14 season.

That will happen when you start a road trip with losses of 4-1 to the San Jose Sharks and 6-1 to the New York Islanders.

The shakeup started Wednesday, when the team announced prior to their practice that rookie forwards Chris Brown and Lucas Lessio had been assigned to the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Portland. To take their places on the roster, Phoenix called up the veteran pair of Tim Kennedy and Brandon Yip.

Report: Markstrom to start for Panthers

Jacob Markstrom will be in net for the Florida Panthers when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday, according to a report by Miami Herald reporter George Richards.

Richards also reports that Tim Thomas worked out on the ice Thursday, but coach Kevin Dineen said the veteran goalie is unlikely to be ready for the team's home opener Friday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Thomas started the Panthers' first three games but left in the first period Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers with a groin injury. Markstrom relieved and stopped all 25 shots he faced in a 2-1 loss.

Tootoo, Gustavsson close to returning to Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock isn't making too many changes to a lineup that suffered a humbling road loss Saturday against the Boston Bruins.

Detroit was tied with Boston 1-1 after 20 minutes despite being outshot 14-5 in the opening period. But the Bruins scored three unanswered goals to close out a 4-1 win and hand the Red Wings their first loss of the 2013-14 season.

In response, Babcock is only making one marginal lineup change, sitting 22-year-old Tomas Tatar in favor of veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson on the team's fourth line. Tatar made his season debut Saturday in Boston and his 9:08 of ice time ranked last among Red Wings players.

Bernier in net as Maple Leafs face Avalanche

It may be just one week into the 2013-14 NHL season, but there is palpable buzz in Toronto as the Colorado Avalanche come to town to face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre. Both teams come into the game undefeated and Toronto will be looking to build on a hot start that has seen the team win its first three games.

While Toronto's three wins have all come in close games, Colorado has won its two games by a combined score of 9-2 and has yet to trail this season.

Kings sign Sabourin to entry-level contract

The Los Angeles Kings on Monday signed forward Scott Sabourin to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The undrafted 21-year-old had 30 goals and 20 assists with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League last season. He then had one assist in five regular-season games with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' American Hockey League team and got into three games in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Sabourin had a minus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in one AHL game with Manchester this season.

Devils go Brodeur on Monday, Schneider vs. Canucks

New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer confirmed his goalie rotation for the next two games. Martin Brodeur will start Monday against the Edmonton Oilers and Cory Schneider will face his former team, the Vancouver Canucks, on Tuesday.

"When we got Cory, and then I got the schedule, it became a no-brainer," DeBoer told reporters while the Devils took part in an optional skate in preparation for Monday's game in Edmonton. "I didn't have to spend a lot of time on it. With the back-to-back situation the plan was to split them on back-to-backs, especially early in the season anyway. It just made sense that those would be how we would rotate them in the two games.

"You talk to any player. They want to play against their old team. There is a comfort level there with the personnel on the other side, with the arena, with the environment. And there is obviously motivation there anytime you leave a team, regardless of the circumstances, to go back and play against them. He's no different than any other player."

Rangers assign Miller to Hartford

With captain Ryan Callahan expected to return to the lineup Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Rangers have sent forward J.T. Miller to their American Hockey League affiliate in Hartford.

The Rangers' first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 draft, Miller registered one shot and two penalty minutes in New York's season-opening 4-1 road loss to the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night. The 20-year-old Ohio native had an eventful 2012-13 season. He made his NHL debut with the Rangers, posting two goals and two assists in 26 games, while also collecting nine points in seven games to lead Team USA to gold at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

In his first home game with the Rangers on Feb. 7, Miller wowed the Madison Square Garden crowd with two goals. But he has failed to score since that game.
