Clutterbuck was injured Tuesday in the third period of a preseason game against the Calgary Flames when he went to make a hit on Paul Byron and got cut by a skate. It was his first game in an Islanders uniform since coming to the team from the Minnesota Wild in a draft-day trade.
Jagr skated on his own for the second day in a row Thursday, general manager Lou Lamoriello told Northjersey.com. The wing has been sidelined from training camp and preseason games since last Thursday with soreness.
The Colorado Avalanche reduced their preseason roster to 42 players on Thursday by returning three players to their junior teams and sending forward Michael Schumacher to the Lake Erie Monsters, their affiliate in the American Hockey League.
The Avalanche returned forward Troy Bourke to Prince George of the Western Hockey League, defenseman Mason Geertsen to Vancouver of the WHL and goaltender Spencer Martin to Mississauga of the Ontario Hockey League.
"These (Murray and Bouillon) are training camp injuries. It's nothing major, and we are just making sure not to aggravate those injuries," coach Michel Therrien said, according to the team's website.
"Drewiske will be out for a month. His injury is more serious, but that's why you need to have a lot of good defensemen in your system. We recalled [Darren] Dietz, who was in Kingston [when we got in touch with him]. He had to make a U-turn and come back to Montreal."
Alfredsson, 40, has a minus-2 rating with one shot on goal in one preseason game.
Forward Johan Franzen also will not play. The team's website said he skated Thursday morning with the first group at Joe Louis Arena but is experiencing a painful hip flexor. Mikael Samuelsson will replace Franzen in the lineup.
"He aggravated an injury there," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters in Chicago after his team's morning skate in preparation for a preseason game Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. "We're going to keep him off. I wouldn't expect him in the next four games here in the next five nights. We'll see how he progresses after that."
However, Quenneville said he expects Hossa to be ready for the regular-season opener, Oct. 1 against the Washington Capitals (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).
"Whether we're talking seriousness of it or not, we feel he'll be back and he'll be fine," Quenneville said.
We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
