AHL Notebook: Lake Erie has options for Blue Jackets

Tuesday, 10.27.2015 / 3:00 AM / AHL Update

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

The Lake Erie Monsters have plenty to deal with at the start of the American Hockey League season without worrying about the fortunes of their new NHL parent club two hours south.

Lake Erie is in the first season of an affiliation with the Columbus Blue Jackets, and each of the teams trumpeted the new all-Ohio affiliation this past summer.

"They get to play in front of management more often," Lake Erie coach Jared Bednar said of the Monsters, who have started 3-1-0-1. "I think they're excited about that."

But amid the Blue Jackets' 1-8-0 start that has led to the arrival of new coach John Tortorella, Bednar knows he must keep his players' attention firmly in Cleveland, not Columbus. But it would be natural with a roster full of young prospects to have attention and gazes drift to the NHL. The Blue Jackets' struggles and the start of the Tortorella era could bring change to the roster in Columbus.

DÉJÀ VU FOR BLACKHAWKS

Corey Crawford earned a shutout, and Jonathan Toews scored in overtime – for the second consecutive game – to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past the Anaheimi Ducks in their first game since the Western Conference Final, a seven-game series victory by Chicago that featured three overtime games.

* The Blackhawks, who defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning by the same margin on Saturday, earned their fourth consecutive victory and extended their shutout streak to 133:34 dating to the third period of their game against the Florida Panthers on Thursday.

* Via the Elias Sports Bureau, the Blackhawks are the first defending Stanley Cup champion in NHL history to blank their Cup Final opponent (TBL) and conference final opponent (ANA) in their first game against each team the next season.

* Crawford, who made a season-high 39 saves for his 14th career NHL shutout, has been in goal for Chicago's entire winning streak (4-0-0, 0.75 GAA, .970 SV%, 2 SO). He also was the goaltender the last time Chicago earned consecutive shutouts, Jan. 9 and 12, 2011 (29 SV vs. the New York Islanders and 24 SV vs. the Colorado Avalanche).

Monday, 10.26.2015 / 4:32 PM / News

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NEW YORK -- New York Islanders defenseman Thomas Hickey is expected to miss at least one month because of a lower-body injury, Newsday reported Monday.

Hickey, who sustained the injury during a 3-2 overtime win at the St. Louis Blues on Saturday, missed the first four games of the season because of a lower-body injury sustained in a preseason game Sept. 28.

He was placed on injured reserve Monday.

"He's hands-down one of the guys we rely on back there," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said at Barclays Center on Monday morning. "He's a veteran guy and he goes under the radar a little bit. I've always said he takes hits, he makes plays. He's a smart, intelligent player. He breaks the puck out extremely well. In today's NHL, you need guys like that on the back end."

Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy practiced with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday for the first time since vascular surgery in September, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Vasilevskiy reported his conditioning felt great and he thinks he could return to the NHL after playing one or two games in the American Hockey League. His goal is to be ready by the time the Lightning play at Carolina on Sunday.

"I feel I can run a marathon right now," he told the Times.

Detroit Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk took part in about half of practice Monday.

Datsyuk had surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his right ankle on June 26, and the initial prognosis was he would be able to return in the middle of November. Datsyuk said his practice appearance Monday doesn't change that timetable.

"Feels better than when I started skating, but it's hard to keep good pace," Datsyuk said. "Team skates fast. I feel more confident, but it's not close yet."

Sabres' Kane to miss 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Monday, 10.26.2015 / 1:57 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres will be without forward Evander Kane for the next 4-6 weeks because of an injury to medial collateral ligament in his left knee, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said Monday. The injury will not require surgery.

Kane sustained the injury during the third period of a 4-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday when he was checked into the boards by Devils defenseman David Schlemko. Kane needed assistance to get to the locker room.

"I didn't see the injury happen live," Bylsma said. "I saw, obviously, it was in that corner and I saw that situation. When you see on the replay and you see how it unfolded and how it happened, it could've been a lot worse. I don't know if I sighed relief when it was 4-6 [weeks], but it's not as bad as it could've been."
