NHL.com

Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding, forward Zach Parise and defenseman Jared Spurgeon each returned to practice Monday wearing red non-contact jerseys.

Harding was cleared to practice Sunday, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. He skated with the Wild for the first time since breaking his ankle before the start of training camp, but there remains no timetable for his return.

"It was great seeing all the guys again and getting that competition back," Harding told the Star Tribune. "Just challenging yourself to stop every shot, just going out there and doing your job. This was another step. Whatever I can do to help this team out, that's the next step."

Canadiens assign forward Rene Bourque to AHL

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 4:28 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The criticism of Rene Bourque has always come with a caveat.

That toolbox.

The 6-foot-2, 214-pound frame, the quickness, the shot, all of it says "NHL power forward," and because that is such a rare commodity Bourque's shortcomings have often been tolerated for longer than they would for most players.

On Monday, however, the Montreal Canadiens ran out of patience.

After clearing waivers at noon Monday, Bourque was sent to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League by the Canadiens after he got off to a tepid start to the 2014-15 season.

With no goals, two assists and a minus-9 differential in 13 games, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien made Bourque a healthy scratch the past two games, and Montreal won both of them with rookie Jiri Sekac taking Bourque’s spot alongside Lars Eller and Brandon Prust and energizing the third line.

'Ice Warriors' tells story of U.S. sled hockey team

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 12:00 PM / Hockey is for Everyone

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Legendary college coach Jeff Sauer considered it a privilege to be given the opportunity to coach the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team to an unprecedented second straight gold medal last March in Sochi, Russia.

The incredible scene after the Americans had defeated Russia, 1-0, in the gold medal game at Shayba Arena was a moment for the ages when the 17-member team celebrated in their end of the ice once the final horn sounded while fans of both countries commended the effort with a standing ovation.

"I've never been involved with a group of athletes like I was the last three-and-a-half years with the sled hockey people," Sauer said. "It was a tremendous honor. The interesting thing about it was where it all happened; in Russia. In the old Soviet Union, handicapped individuals were kind of shunned and put to the side. This was a showcase not just for sled hockey, but handicapped folks all across the world. The crowds were unbelievable and the fact we won in front of a Russian crowd that had never seen handicapped individuals operate the way we did, was just fantastic."

Fans across the globe can witness the determination and courage of the U.S. sled hockey team members in a new 90-minute documentary entitled "Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey" that premiers Monday on PBS at 10 p.m. ET.

Sunday, 11.09.2014 / 4:13 PM / News

NHL.com

Boston Bruins defenseman David Warsofsky will miss 2-4 weeks with a groin strain, the team announced Sunday. Warsofsky was injured in Boston's 5-2 win against the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 6.

In addition to Warsofsky, defensemen Zdeno Chara (knee), Torey Krug (finger) and Kevan Miller (shoulder) are on the injured list. Krug, however, has been practicing since Friday and there's a chance he can return Monday against the New Jersey Devils at TD Garden.

"Yeah, definitely," Krug told the Bruins website after practice Sunday. "It's realistic, it's something that we've just got to talk about and make sure I feel comfortable with it, the coaches feel comfortable, and it's going to be a group decision.

"I feel good. I'm feeling more comfortable. Every time I'm on the ice I feel better about it, so it's good so far."
