BROSSARD, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens right wing Zack Kassian sustained a fractured nose and fractured left foot in a car accident early Sunday morning, general manager Marc Bergevin said Monday.

Kassian, 24, was hospitalized Sunday after the truck he was a passenger in crashed into a tree in a residential Montreal neighborhood at approximately 6:30 a.m., according to Montreal police.

Though Bergevin had not spoken to Kassian and did not have all the details of the incident, he expressed the Canadiens disappointment in Kassian's actions, particularly the time of day the incident took place.

"I'm a firm believer in character," Bergevin said, "and that's a lack of character and judgment on his part."

Bickell on waivers part of Blackhawks' shakeup

CHICAGO -- It was no secret there would be a number of changes to the Chicago Blackhawks roster heading into this season, but a couple of decisions made in the past 48 hours were unexpected.

It started Friday, when 20-year old forward Marko Dano, a key piece in the offseason trade that sent forward Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets, was among the players assigned to Rockford of the American Hockey League.

Around the same time, reports surfaced that Chicago placed veteran forward and three-time Stanley Cup champion Bryan Bickell on waivers.

Bickell, who comes with a $4 million NHL salary-cap charge, wasn't claimed Saturday. He can be sent to Rockford without having to go through waivers any time in the next 30 days, or before he plays in 10 games with the Blackhawks, who plan to keep him to start the season.

"I'm just taking it as an awakening, to set a fire," said Bickell, who will play left wing on the third line at United Center on Saturday in Chicago's final preseason game. "I look at the clock [in the locker room]. It's 11:16 (a.m.), so I'm still here and looking to play tonight, to really show them I can get that game back. I want to be a Blackhawk forever and [it's a] second opportunity."

Red Wings top Maple Leafs in Babcock's return

DETROIT -- Mike Babcock was focused on what was happening on the ice, not the fact this was his first game behind the visiting team's bench at Joe Louis Arena in 11 years.

"I didn't think much about that," he said after watching his former team, the Detroit Red Wings, defeat his new team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-2 on Friday in a preseason game.

"I was saying tonight when I got here it's been 12 years I guess since I was with another team when you think about the lockout," said Babcock, whose last time behind the visitors bench here was Jan. 3, 2004, during his second and last season as coach of the Anaheim Ducks.

Babcock coached the Red Wings for the past 10 seasons before signing an eight-year contract with the Maple Leafs on May 20.

"I talked to [Red Wings general manager] Kenny Holland before the game; he gets to deal with new people, that's energizing for him. I'm doing a bunch of new stuff that's energizing for me," Babcock said. "And as much as I loved it here, I think for me, in the end, it was probably time to go, and I think they're in a great situation."

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
