Devils' Clowe hoping to be cleared for start of camp

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 10:02 AM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils forward Ryane Clowe has been on the ice with teammates for informal workouts, but isn't sure he'll be with the team when training camp opens Sept. 19.

Clowe hasn't played since March 31, when he sustained a concussion during a game against the Florida Panthers. He told NorthJersey.com that he will see a concussion specialist prior to taking his training camp physical and is hoping for a clean bill of health from both exams.

"I feel pretty good," Clowe said Thursday. "I'm not going to say if I'm ready to go or not because I've got to get cleared to play and I've got to see the doctor again before the season starts. But I feel good. I, obviously, haven't done any contact. I've been skating the last few weeks, just scrimmaging since I got back with the guys. I've been on the ice and stuff.

"The biggest thing with me is, when we start practicing, if I get some contact in then and just go from there. I've been feeling pretty good. I've been working out pretty normal the last, I guess, month."

Ovechkin to start Capitals camp at left wing: report

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 8:38 AM / News

NHL.com

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has experienced success on the right wing during the past two seasons, but new coach Barry Trotz said he plans on putting him back at left wing to start training camp next week, CSN Washington reported Thursday.

Ovechkin scored an NHL-leading 51 goals in 2013-14 and had 83 goals in 126 games at right wing under former coach Adam Oates. Trotz told CSN he expects to use Ovechkin on either wing during the season, but he'll begin camp Sept. 19 at left wing.

"Going into camp I'd probably say I'm leaning more to left than right," Trotz said. "He moves his feet better on that side, he's able to go laterally better. I want to play him more on that side but I want to clean up some things in his own end to allow him to play that side."

Clipping, charging, elbowing, interference, kneeing, head-butting and butt-ending move from the general category into the same category as boarding and checking from behind ("Physical Fouls"), whereby a player who incurs two such game misconducts in this category would now be automatically suspended for one game.
