Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG – Another injury to a defenseman forced Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff to act Thursday.

The Jets acquired defenseman Jay Harrison from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for the Ottawa Senators’ sixth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft that the Jets had acquired this past summer. Harrison, 32, is expected to bolster a blue line that has four regulars injured. He is expected to play against the Boston Bruins on Friday.

Harrison’s acquisition followed Jets coach Paul Maurice’s announcement after practice Thursday that defenseman Mark Stuart will be out until February because of a lower-body injury. Stuart sustained the injury in a fight with Buffalo Sabres forward Nicolas Deslauriers on Tuesday.

Penguins' Crosby returns against Avalanche

Thursday, 12.18.2014 / 6:43 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby is in the lineup against the Colorado Avalanche at Consol Energy Center on Thursday.

Crosby missed Pittsburgh’s past three games with the mumps. He participated in the Penguins morning skate Thursday to test how he felt and said he felt well afterward but would talk with the medical staff before determining if he would play.

“When I saw that picture, that's not what I looked like before I went on the ice,” Crosby said of a photo that circulated on Twitter of him with a swollen cheek. “It was just one of those things, we were well aware of it. Everyone did the right things to try to keep me and everyone else as protected as you can be. But it's just something that sometimes you can't do anything about it.”

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
