Wednesday, 11.21.2012 / 11:25 AM / Prospects

Ryan Murray, the second pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, is out indefinitely following an injury to his right shoulder sustained last week.

Murray, playing for the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League, was injured during a Nov. 16 game against the Victoria Royals. Falling backward after being hit, he injured his shoulder trying to break his fall.

Murray had an MRI exam after the injury, with the results sent to the Columbus Blue Jackets' medical staff. The Columbus Dispatch is reporting the defenseman suffered a torn labrum.

Coaches often will spend extra time with their players in their NHL draft-eligible seasons to make sure they focus on the present and not worry about what might happen in the future.

Waterloo Black Hawks coach P.K. O'Handley is pretty sure he won't need to have many of those conversations with forward Taylor Cammarata.

"Taylor is controlling what he can control, and that's himself and doing what he can for our team," O'Handley told "There's not much to have to keep in check with Taylor. He's pretty well-grounded that way."

Cammarata (5-foot-7, 156 pounds) has certainly been doing a lot to impress the scouts this season. He's fourth in the United States Hockey League in scoring with 17 points in nine games. He's been away from the team for the past two weeks helping the United States win the gold medal at the World Junior A Challenge with a goal and three assists in four games.

After five games in three provinces over the past 10 days, the CHL Subway Super Series will be decided Thursday when Team WHL faces Russia in the finale of the six-game showdown at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria, British Columbia.

Team WHL's 1-0 shootout win Wednesday in Vancouver gave the CHL stars an 8-7 lead in points through five games, but a regulation win by either side will decide the series. If Russia wins in a shootout, another shootout will be held to decide the series champion.

The game can be seen at 10 p.m. ET on NHL Network in the United States and Sportsnet in Canada.

Ten players who were part of Wednesday's win for Team WHL will skate in Thursday's game, including goaltender Laurent Brossoit, who stopped all 30 shots he faced in regulation and three more in the shootout.

The road back from a concussion might well be just what the doctor ordered for Kitchener Rangers rookie forward Justin Bailey.

Bailey was sidelined five games in the Ontario Hockey League after suffering a concussion off a neutral zone hit delivered by Calgary Flames prospect Pat Sieloff of the Windsor Spitfires on Sept. 27. Sieloff was assessed a charging penalty and game misconduct on the play.

At the time of Bailey's injury, he had zero points and four penalty minutes in three games.


MacKinnon to play wing in Super Series opener

BOISBRIAND, Quebec -- Top 2013 NHL Draft prospect Nathan MacKinnon of the Halifax Mooseheads may take his first step toward an eventual inclusion on the Canadian junior national team Monday, when he skates in an unfamiliar position for the team representing the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in Game 1 of the Canadian Hockey League Subway Super Series against Team Russia.

Team QMJHL coach Andre Tourigny, who also will serve as an assistant to Steve Spott on the team Canada sends to Russia for the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship, said he will be playing MacKinnon on the wing Monday, alongside fellow 2013 NHL Draft hopeful Jean-Sebastien Dea of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and Florida Panthers top prospect Jonathan Huberdeau of the Saint John Sea Dogs.

It will be the first time MacKinnon will play out of his natural position of center, but Tourigny said there's a specific reason behind the decision, which goes beyond Monday's game (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, Sportsnet).

BOISBRIAND, Quebec -- Halifax Mooseheads left wing Jonathan Drouin, one of the top prospects for the 2013 NHL Draft, will not play for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team against Team Russia in Game 1 of the Subway Super Series on Monday (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, Sportsnet) due to a foot injury.

Drouin, 17, suffered the injury Saturday blocking a shot in the Mooseheads' 5-1 win at the Drummondville Voltigeurs. He played in Halifax's 6-5 shootout loss at the Rimouski Oceanic on Sunday, which snapped the Mooseheads' 14-game winning streak, but was limited to spot duty because of the injury.

Mooseheads general manager Cam Russell told the Halifax Chronicle-Herald that Drouin suffered a bruise and added that it was possible he would play in Game 2 of the series, Wednesday night in Val-d'Or, Quebec.


Stars prospect Ritchie has 11-point weekend in OHL

Sunday, 11.04.2012 / 8:30 PM / Prospects

Dallas Stars prospect Brett Ritchie scored five goals Sunday to cap an 11-point weekend playing for the Niagara IceDogs in the Ontario Hockey League.

IceDogs linemate Ryan Strome, a New York Islanders prospect, had 10 points in the two games.

"It was a good weekend. We played well as [a] team and obviously I got the points with my line," Ritchie told the St. Catherines Standard.

Ritchie helped his team come back from 4-2 down against the Peterborough Petes on Sunday, scoring three times (including an empty-netter) in the final 7:13 of a 6-4 win. The wing had given the IceDogs a 2-1 lead with a first-period power-play goal and a score six minutes into the second.
