Kevin Porter of the Colorado Avalanche will have a hearing with the NHL on Thursday concerning a kneeing infraction in Tuesday night's game at Vancouver.

Porter was assessed a kneeing major and a game misconduct at 10:55 of the first period for a knee-on-knee collision with Vancouver's David Booth, who left the game and did not return. The Canucks said Wednesday that Booth is expected to miss four to six weeks with a sprained MCL.
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
