Red Wings place forward Johan Franzen on IR

Thursday, 10.15.2015 / 5:01 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen is dealing with post-concussion-like symptoms, coach Jeff Blashill said Thursday.

Franzen was put on injured reserve, general manager Ken Holland told the Red Wings website.

Franzen, who missed time last season with a concussion, skated Tuesday morning and then did not feel well; he was scratched from a 3-1 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning. He has one assist in two games this season.

"You don’t like to see anybody go through injury issues, and certainly for him he’s battled, worked hard through the summer, got himself in great position," Blashill said. "So you certainly don't want to see it, none of his teammates want to see it, I don't want to see it but it's the reality right now and I feel extraordinarily bad for him."

EDMONTON -- After three road games to start his NHL career, Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid will make his home debut Thursday against the St. Louis Blues (9 p.m. ET; SNOL, FS-MW).

The No. 1 pick of the 2015 NHL Draft will try to help Edmonton (0-3-0) earn its first win of the season in the final home opener at Rexall Place. Edmonton will move into a new arena next season.

"Edmonton has such a rich history that the past is so well-known. You don't have to know much about hockey to know about the Edmonton Oilers and know about their past," McDavid said. "I know a fair amount about their past. It's going to be a pretty special night."

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom could make his season debut Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

"I think based on my conversation yesterday that there is a possibility for Saturday," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said Thursday. "I'm not going to confirm or deny anything. He's feeling better. Every time a player says they're feeling better and better, there is a possibility."

Red Wings' DeKeyser, Helm could return Saturday

Wednesday, 10.14.2015 / 5:02 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser could return to play Saturday, earlier than his expected recovery from a foot injury, coach Jeff Blashill said Wednesday.

DeKeyser was injured in a preseason game Sept. 30 and the prognosis was he would miss 3-4 weeks with sprained ligaments in his left foot. Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens would be two weeks; Detroit also plays Friday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

"There was some swelling after, but we just did the stuff that you would try to do to heal up a sprained ankle, icing and some acupuncture and stuff like that," DeKeyser told the Red Wings website. "I did some battling stuff out there today and so far it's felt good, no issues with it."

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin was scratched Tuesday against the San Jose Sharks because he overslept and was late for the morning skate.

Washington lost 5-0 to the Sharks at Verizon Center. Ovechkin has missed only 23 games since the beginning of his NHL career in 2005. For the fifth time during their NHL careers, the Capitals played without the services of Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, who has been cleared for contact.

"I just messed up with my alarm clock; put 8:30 p.m., not a.m.," Ovechkin said Wednesday. "I fell asleep. I make mistakes and that's why (he didn't play). It's the team rules."

Coach Barry Trotz said he talked to Ovechkin later Tuesday morning and told him that he would not play against San Jose.
