Capitals' Erat named to Czech Republic team

Washington Capitals forward Martin Erat has been named to the Czech Republic roster for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

He takes the place of St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Sobotka, who went on injured reserve this past weekend with a leg injury.

"We've counted with Vladimir Sobotka as a top two-way forward, he is extraordinary on defense," Czech Republic coach Alois Hadamczik said. "After he got injured, we had to find similar kind of a player and Martin Erat is best in defense among all candidates."

Erat has 21 points, all assists, in 48 games for the Washington Capitals this season.

"It's always nice to play for your national team, especially as a big tournament as Olympics are," said Erat, who will make his third Olympic appearance. "It's going to be nice to change scenarios for a while and hope [we] get something done there."

Tortorella apologizes, returns to coach Canucks

John Tortorella will be back behind the bench Monday to coach the Vancouver Canucks against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena after a 15-day suspension that saw him miss six games. The team went 2-4-0 in his absence and is 0-1-0 on its five-game road trip following a 4-3 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.

"I apologize first and foremost to the players, to the organization and to the League. It hasn't been a great two weeks," Tortorella told reporters Monday morning. "I didn't help matters for this team and we're in a tough spot right now. It's up to me to do my job and get this team back."

With a precarious hold on a playoff spot, Tortorella and the Canucks have a lot of work to do. Vancouver has lost three straight games and four of its past five, and has allowed 17 goals in its past four games. The coach's message delivered to the media was the need for tougher skin.

"We had meetings this morning. We have a long list of things we need to improve at," Tortorella said. "We need to start over on the mental side. We're off the rails on a lot of different aspects. Every aspect of our game is off. This team can and will play the right way."

Ducks defenseman Vatanen back in lineup

The Anaheim Ducks recalled defenseman Sami Vatanen from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League on Monday and he's expected to be in the lineup, paired with veteran Bryan Allen, for the Ducks' game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Honda Center.

Vatanen has six goals and 14 points in 39 NHL games.

Coming out of the lineup will be Luca Sbisa and Mark Fistric, the latter of whom sustained a lower-body injury Saturday against the Dallas Stars and was placed on injured reserve.

Frederik Andersen, who has won 14 of his first 16 NHL decisions, will get the start in goal.

He'll be opposed by the Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky, who has won his past two starts and nine of 11 since returning from injury.

Stamkos eyeing Saturday for return

Tampa Bay Lightning star Steven Stamkos has set Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings as his target date to return from a broken leg sustained less than three months earlier, according to a report by Damian Cristodero of the Tampa Bay Times.

The Lightning will host the Red Wings at Tampa Bay Times Forum in their final game prior to the NHL's two-week break for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Stamkos, who was named to Canada's roster for the tournament, hopes to use the game Saturday as a measuring stick as to whether he will be able to participate in the Olympics.
