Report: Plekanec could miss opening of training camp
The Montreal Canadiens might have to start training camp without top center Tomas Plekanec, who suffered what the Montreal Gazette reported to be an upper-body injury in late December while playing for Kladno in the Czech Republic.

The Montreal Canadiens might have to start training camp without top center Tomas Plekanec, who suffered what the Montreal Gazette reported to be an upper-body injury in late December while playing for Kladno in the Czech Republic.

"It's nothing serious," Plekanec told the newspaper. "I should be playing in a week, 10 days maximum. Maybe quicker when I get proper treatment."

Plekanec hopes to get a full report on his health when he is examined by Canadiens doctors once the new Collective Bargaining Agreement is ratified and training camps open.

Plekanec was second on the team with 35 assists last season, and fourth with 52 points.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
