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

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
