Ruff back on the ice
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A familiar face was back on the ice today with the Buffalo Sabres -- coach Lindy Ruff.

Ruff skated during practice for the first time since he broke three ribs in a collision with Jordan Leopold during a practice earlier this month.

"It felt good to be out there," Ruff said. "I'd probably win the stupid award for going out. I just felt that it's time and be careful that I don't fall and that I don't get hit."

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
