Flyers' Coburn, MacDonald out; Lecavalier skates

Friday, 10.24.2014 / 11:22 AM / News

The Philadelphia Flyers might have one center back in the lineup Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings but will be without two veteran defensemen.

Vincent Lecavalier was on the ice Friday for the first time since sustaining a lower-body injury during a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 11, according to the Flyers.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Lecavalier was one of a few players out early taking shots on goaltender Ray Emery, and that the veteran forward remained on the ice when full practice began.

Missing from practice were defensemen Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald, each of whom will be out approximately four weeks with lower-body injuries.

BOSTON -- If losing defenseman Zdeno Chara in the first period against the New York Islanders on Thursday wasn't enough reason to worry, the Boston Bruins also did not have a diagnosis on their captain after they lost to the New York Islanders 3-2 at TD Garden.

"No. No report yet," Bruins coach Claude Julien said in his postgame remarks. "I haven't even checked in on the situation. So first of all, we won't know anything until he sees the proper people in the medical staff. So nothing right now."

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli will address the media at 11:30 a.m. ET on Friday. The Bruins also have recalled defensemen Zach Trotman and Joseph Morrow from Providence of the American Hockey League.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky will spend the next two years getting a hands-on course on how to run the New York Islanders. Their teacher: current owner Charles Wang.

Malkin and Ledecky were introduced Wednesday as the incoming owners of the Islanders. They will hold a minority interest in the team for two seasons before taking over as majority owners, with Wang retaining a minority interest.

"Life has its moments of opportunity, and you have to decide whether you're going to step forward," Malkin said when asked why he and Ledecky wanted to buy a franchise that has made the Stanley Cup Playoffs once since 2007 and hasn't won a series since 1993. "Charles gave us that opportunity. For us, we saw this as a moment that we could embrace things that we believed in and embrace the Islanders and what they stand for.

"The vision that Charles has created of the team, the new arena, the strength on which to build, those were very important to us."
