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.

Penguins forward Bennett to miss six weeks

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Beau Bennett will be sidelined six weeks with a lower-body injury.

"It was just one of those unfortunate things and that’s our timeline with him," coach Mike Johnston told the Penguins website.

"When he left the ice, he was thinking, 'Oh no, here I go again, another injury.' Really, you look at the injuries that he’s had and it's not like he (can) battle through things. There's certain injuries that are unavoidable, and that one there, he got clipped in practice and went down awkwardly."

Jets' Galiardi has eye surgery, out at least a week

Winnipeg Jets forward TJ Galiardi had laser eye surgery Friday to repair damage sustained from taking a puck near his left eye during practice that morning. The team announced Galiardi regained sight in the eye and will be out at least seven days.

"I can't tell you whether it's a cut or anything more until he sees the right people," Jets coach Paul Maurice told the Winnipeg Free Press on Friday. "It was around (the eye). Speaking from personal experience, those things close up so fast, you're not sure until you get a guy who knows what he's doing to look at it. He walked out of here under his own power. It was in the eye area."

The Jets agreed to terms with Galiardi, 26, on a one-year, two-way contract worth $750,000 on Aug. 1. He had 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) in 62 games with the Calgary Flames last season, and has 104 points (43 goals, 61 assists) in 283 games with the Colorado AvalancheSan Jose Sharks and Flames.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
