Penguins' Crosby to make preseason debut Monday

Sidney Crosby will make his preseason debut Monday night when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Minnesota Wild, the team said Sunday.

Rangers' injuries could give Hayes chance at center

Forward Kevin Hayes, bidding to make the New York Rangers roster after signing as a free agent this summer, practiced at wing on Sunday, but he could find himself seeing more time at center as the result of injuries to veterans Matthew Lombardi and Ryan Malone.

"Being a versatile player can never hurt you," Hayes, who played plenty of wing at Boston College, where he spent the past four seasons, said according to the Rangers website. "Whether you're playing center or wing, you still go out there, try your hardest, try and show the coaches what I can bring to this team. Whether it's going to be on right wing, that's the case."

Red Wings' Nyquist escapes serious injury: report

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist has soreness but no significant injury as the result of a knee-on-knee hit in the final minute of a game Saturday against the Boston Bruins, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"It looked scary at the time but the initial word is that it looks like a day-to-day, short-term injury," general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press on Sunday. He said Nyquist had been thoroughly examined by team doctors.

Nyquist emerged last season with 28 goals in 57 regular-season games. His offense becomes even more important to the Red Wings with center Pavel Datsyuk out 4-5 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
