Penner to return to Ducks' lineup

BOSTON -- Teemu Selanne's injured mouth sustained in the Anaheim Ducks' win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday added to the team's lengthy list of injured players.

But with Selanne back in California awaiting oral surgery, the team will get one body back against the Boston Bruins on Thursday as Dustin Penner will get back in the lineup after a five-game absence.

Penner took part in the morning skate Wednesday and will make his return to the lineup Wednesday night. It will be his first game since Oct. 20, when he sustained a concussion on a hit by the Dallas Stars' Ryan Garbutt. Garbutt was suspended for five games by the NHL Department of Player Safety for the hit.

Sabres' Moulson gets second chance to say goodbye

NEW YORK -- Matt Moulson said that the timing of his Oct. 27 trade from the New York Islanders to the Buffalo Sabres was not exactly ideal.

Just two weeks earlier his wife Alicia had given birth to the couple's second child, a son they named George. With a 14-month-old daughter already in the mix, Moulson was forced to leave his young and growing family. And a quick look at the Sabres' schedule revealed Moulson wouldn't be back to play against the Islanders on Long Island until March 15.

But there was a game prior that would give Moulson an opportunity to say goodbye one last time to friends while spending extra time with his family.

"When I got traded I was on the computer checking the schedule about two seconds later," Moulson said. "It was good to see that this game was so close to the trade. I knew I would be coming back and be able to see them."

Callahan skates, Moore out for Rangers

NEW YORK -- Coming off a spirited 3-2 come-from-behind road win against the New York Islanders on Tuesday, the New York Rangers seemed to be in high spirits during their morning skate Thursday.

That mood was buoyed even more by the presence of captain Ryan Callahan, who skated with his team for the first time since breaking his thumb in a win against the Washington Capitals on Oct. 16.

Callahan wore a yellow non-contact jersey during the skate and is not expected to return to the lineup for at least 7-10 days. But his presence and the energy that comes with it was welcomed by coaches and players alike as they prepare to face the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-CA) at Madison Square Garden.

"It's always good to see players come back. [Callahan] is a big piece of the team," goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said. "I'm not sure when he's going to be ready to play, but it's good to see him out there."

St. Michael's Evans highlights Canada East roster

Jake Evans, a center with St. Michael's of the Ontario Junior Hockey League and a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, was among the 22 players named to the Canada East roster for the 2013 World Junior A Hockey Challenge.

The roster was chosen after a four-day camp in Oakville, Ontario.

"It has been an exciting four days in Oakville, and as we expected there were some tough decisions to get down to 22 players," Canada East coach Ian MacInnis said. "As a coaching staff we're confident we've assembled the best roster and we're looking forward to getting to Yarmouth and getting started."

Red Wings, Canucks to match stacked top lines

VANCOUVER -- The Detroit Red Wings and Vancouver Canucks will feature a battle of loaded top lines Wednesday.

Coming off four straight losses, Detroit reunited Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg on a line with Todd Bertuzzi, while the Canucks have won four straight games with Selke Trophy-winning center Ryan Kesler moved up to play right wing with Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin.

"Faceoffs are going to be important," Zetterberg said. "Both of our lines want to have the puck and it's not so fun to chase it."

The Red Wings have done too much chasing of the puck early this season, having been outshot in eight of their past 10 games and giving up 40 shots to the New York Rangers in a 3-2 overtime loss Saturday.

"We're too loose, we're giving up too many shots and we're not as tight as we should be defensively," coach Mike Babcock said.

Sharks' Havlat to make season debut

LOS ANGELES -- The San Jose Sharks hardly needed more offensive firepower, but right wing Marty Havlat will make his season debut Wednesday in a big divisional game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Havlat is recovered from pelvic surgery in June and it will be his first game since Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals, also against the Kings, on May 18. He will step onto the third line with Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels. Havlat isn't sure what to expect but he's anxious to get back in.

"I haven't played a game in six months," he said. "It's been a long time. It feels good to be back on the ice with the guys. We'll see how it goes."

Quote of the Day

I always feel the pressure to produce offensively. It's disappointing and frustrating when you can't help out your team the way you're supposed to.
