No timetable on Vokoun; Penguins stick with Zatkoff

WEST POINT, N.Y. -- The Pittsburgh Penguins won't know how long goaltender Tomas Vokoun will be out until he visits with his doctors early next week, general manager Ray Shero said Friday. Vokoun had emergency surgery last week because of a blood clot in his pelvis.

Vokoun's agent, Allan Walsh, wrote on his Twitter account Friday that the goalie is expected to start light workouts next week.

"I met with Tomas [Thursday] and we'll have more of an update probably next week," Shero told "Fortunately for him he dodged a bullet. Luckily he was at the rink and we got him to the hospital so the procedures went well. We'll just have to wait and see what the next steps are going to be and go from there. Our concerns are just with him and his health, but it was good to see him [Thursday]."

Oilers encouraged by Belov's play

An Edmonton Oilers team that was criticized last season for its lack of depth on defense was bolstered by the offseason signing of Andrew Ference. But there was another veteran defenseman acquired during the summer in the hopes of building depth on the back end.

Anton Belov may have come into camp as an unknown entity, but his improvement during the course of the preseason is earning him praise from Oilers brass. The 27-year-old spent the past five seasons playing with Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League before being signed by Edmonton in May.

He may be new to the NHL, but Below isn't playing like a rookie.
