Hurricanes' Skinner likely to miss rest of preseason

Forward Jeff Skinner is likely to miss the remainder of the Carolina Hurricanes' preseason schedule with a lower-body injury.

Skinner did not take part in the morning skate at PNC Arena prior to Thursday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. They also host the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night. Coach Kirk Muller said Skinner won't play Thursday and is doubtful for Friday.

“We just want to be smart and not push him right now with these exhibition games,” Muller said.

Canucks forward Booth to debut against Rangers

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks forward David Booth will make his season debut in the team's preseason finale against the New York Rangers on Thursday night.

There was concern Booth might miss the start of the season after only playing 12 games last year before ankle surgery, being held out of the start of training camp, and pulling out of a game last weekend after tweaking his groin in the morning skate. But coach John Tortorella surprised everyone by announcing the oft-injured winger is ready to play.

"David Booth as far as I am concerned is playing tonight, unless someone tells me something different," Tortorella said when asked if Booth had resumed skating.

Ryan MacInnis hopes to follow in father's footsteps

PITTSBURGH -- Ryan MacInnis is hopeful that he'll one day be able to follow the path of his Hockey Hall of Fame father. The only difference is he'll do so playing at a different position.

Unlike Al MacInnis, a seven-time All-Star defenseman who spent 23 seasons in the League with the St. Louis Blues and Calgary Flames, son Ryan plays center for the Ontario Hockey League's Kitchener Rangers. The younger MacInnis was one of 39 players in attendance here at Consol Energy Center for the morning practice session in preparation for the second annual CCM/USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game.

He'll skate with Seamus Malone of the Dubuque Fighting Saints in the United States Hockey League and Blake Clarke of the OHL's North Bay Battalion for coach Joe Mullen's team.

NHL Live talks to Wild, reviews Central Division

The Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks are playing outdoors and NHL Live will be on an hour earlier, 4 ET on NHL Network, to bring you the press conference to show off Dodger Stadium. It is also Central Division Day as we give offseason grades to the Chicago Blackhawks, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, St. Louis Blues and Winnipeg Jets

Also today, we'll check in with the Minnesota Wild at their training camp in St. Paul. Head Coach Mike Yeo, forwards Matt Cooke and Charlie Coyle, as well as defenseman Jonas Brodin will be joining us. Yeo has said that in the past, the Wild have been more of a "grinder style" team, but now it's more about playing an exciting offensive style on the rush. We'll ask him about that and his team's young core of talented players who are poised for breakout seasons.

Ken Daneyko will also be filling in for E.J. Hradek. So remember to submit your #AskDano questions about your favorite team in the Central Division through Twitter via @NHLNetwork.
