Report: Samuelsson out two weeks with broken finger

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced Wednesday that veteran forward Mikael Samuelsson has a non-displaced fractured finger and will miss a minimum of two weeks, according to a report by Detroit Free Press beat writer Helene St. James.

Samuelsson had missed 12 games this season with a groin injury, returned to the lineup Sunday against the Minnesota Wild, but took an Ian White shot off his left hand during the morning skate prior to Tuesday's game against the Nashville Predators.

St. James reported the Red Wings are awaiting test results on Jimmy Howard, who left the 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators in the first period with blurry vision. Howard gave up two goals on seven shots before he was lifted and replaced by Jonas Gustavsson.

Prust returns to Garden with Canadiens

NEW YORK – When Brandon Prust joined the New York Rangers from the Calgary Flames in January 2010, he wasn’t much more than a player who would drop the gloves and spend most of a game glued to the bench in a strict enforcer role.

That changed under Rangers coach John Tortorella, who employed him as a checking-line wingr and penalty-killing specialist. Prust also fought more than anyone in the NHL last season, and it resulted in him being rewarded with a four-year, $10 million contract by the Montreal Canadiens in July.

Prust wasn’t looking to leave as a free agent, but the Canadiens made an offer he couldn’t refuse.

“Well, to have some teams come at you like Montreal did, it’s definitely flattering, and I think it was good for me to also set a precedent for players like me and how important we can be to teams.” Prust told reporters at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night with the Canadiens paying a visit to the Rangers. “That was something I was happy to do as well, you know? Sometimes players like me are maybe overlooked or not looked at as an important piece to the puzzle, but it was something I wanted to prove and wanted to show."

Ducks send Deslauriers, Guenin to minor leagues

The Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday sent defenseman Nate Guenin to Norfolk of the American Hockey League and goaltender Jeff Deslauriers to Fort Wayne of the ECHL.

The Deslauriers move comes a day after Jonas Hiller was able to return to the lineup after missing 10 days with a lower-body injury. He stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win Monday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Deslauriers spent four games as the backup to Viktor Fasth.

Guenin was a healthy scratch in four games after being recalled Feb. 11.
