Sharks rookie Hertl out month, maybe longer

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks rookie forward Tomas Hertl will miss at least a month and possibly longer with an injury to his right knee, general manager Doug Wilson said Saturday morning.

“There is still some swelling in the knee," Wilson said. "Preliminary report is he’ll be out at least a month, and then we’ll have some more tests that will be ongoing, and see what the extent is and go from there. That will take a little bit of time for that evaluation to take place.”

Hertl was injured Thursday in the first period against the Los Angeles Kings during a knee-on-knee collision with Kings captain Dustin Brown. Brown received a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct but no supplementary discipline from the NHL.

Wilson said it's too early to tell whether Hertl's injury could be season-ending.

"Ask me in a week, or two or three," Wilson said. "I think right now the prognosis is a month but we are prepared that it could be longer. How much longer, I don’t know.”

Oilers' Perron looks to bring edge against Blues

EDMONTON -- David Perron is looking forward to facing his former teammates Saturday night.

The Edmonton Oilers left wing is going up against the St. Louis Blues for the first time since being traded this offseason. Perron was acquired by the Oilers in exchange for Magnus Paajarvi and a second-round pick in 2014 NHL Draft.

“When I got traded and the schedule came out, that’s the first thing I looked at,” Perron said. “Normally I look at when we play [the Montreal Canadiens], because I’m from there, but this year was a little different. It’s going to be fun to play against them.”

Gaborik, Wisniewski returning for Blue Jackets

COLUMBUS -- The return from injuries Saturday of forward Marian Gaborik and defenseman James Wisniewski not only will solidify the Columbus Blue Jackets' lineup but could provide a needed psychological boost two days after blowing a big third-period lead to the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I hope that's the case," Wisniewski said.

The last of Wisniewski's six games missed (upper body) was Thursday when the Blue Jackets (14-17-4) allowed five goals in the third and lost 5-4 at Philadelphia. The rematch is Saturday in Nationwide Arena.

"As soon as that buzzer went, everyone was looking forward to the next game and getting back after it," Columbus defenseman Ryan Murray said.
