Wednesday, 09.30.2015 / 10:08 PM / News

Henrik Lundqvist made 39 saves to lead the New York Rangers to a 3-2 victory against the Boston Bruins at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.

TAMPA -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman was a full participant at practice Wednesday, a day after he was removed from a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Johnstown, Pa., because of an undisclosed injury.

After the game, Lightning coach Jon Cooper said the injury was minor and that Hedman was held out for precautionary reasons.

Hedman was one of the first skaters on the ice ahead of practice Wednesday and showed no signs of discomfort during the 50-minute session. He went to the trainer's room after practice and did not speak to reporters, but relayed a message through a member of the Lightning public relations staff that he was fine.

Oilers' Eberle out 4-6 weeks with shoulder injury

Derek Van Diest - Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers forward Jordan Eberle will be sidelined 4-6 weeks because of a shoulder injury sustained Tuesday in a preseason game against the Arizona Coyotes.

Eberle, 25, left the game in the first period and did not return after taking a hit from Coyotes center Kyle Chipchura along the boards behind the Arizona net.

"It wasn't anything big, it was a small hit. I was trying to keep the play alive by reaching for the puck and was just kind of folding my shoulder over," Eberle, his right arm in a sling, said at practice Wednesday. "I got hit and right away I knew something was wrong and got back to the bench, and it was a shoulder injury. I'm pretty frustrated. You train pretty hard in the offseason to get where you are and you get a setback like this and it definitely [stinks]. There's definitely a bright side to this; it's better to do something like this now than maybe later in the season when we're battling for a playoff spot or in the mix."

Eberle led the Oilers in scoring last season with 24 goals and 63 points in 81 games. He has one goal and one assist in four preseason games.

Wednesday, 09.30.2015 / 4:10 PM / News

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will make his preseason debut Thursday against the Ottawa Senators at Bell Centre, coach Michel Therrien said after practice Wednesday.

Pacioretty began practicing with the Canadiens this week as he completed his recovery from fractures in the tibial plateau of his left knee, an injury sustained July 9 during offseason training in Florida.

The original prognosis for recovery from the injury was 12 weeks, and Thursday marks exactly 12 weeks since Pacioretty was injured.

Commissioner: No timetable for NHL expansion

Tuesday, 09.29.2015 / 7:12 PM / News

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The NHL continues to explore the possibility of expansion but no firm timetable has been set for the process, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Tuesday at the fall Board of Governors meeting.

Earlier Tuesday, the Board's executive committee heard presentations from representatives from the Quebec and Las Vegas markets. The Quebec presentation was headed by members of Quebecor, the company making the Quebec bid. Businessman Bill Foley led the presentation by the Vegas Wants Hockey group.

The presentations, made at the NHL office here, each lasted more than an hour, according to Commissioner Bettman. They were the latest step by the League to determine if expansion is a viable option.

Commissioner Bettman said no deadline has been established for a decision.

"We are in the process of gathering information," Commissioner Bettman said. "There have been no deliberations as to whether or not we want to expand, how many teams, or where. There's much work to be done."

Stars' Benn, Hemsky to make preseason debuts

Tuesday, 09.29.2015 / 3:44 PM / News

Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn will make his preseason debut Tuesday against the St. Louis Blues.

Benn, who won the Art Ross Trophy last season, has not played since having surgeries on his hips in April and May. He began skating in early July.

"I am excited and ready to get back in the action," Benn told the Stars website. "It will be a little bit of a different feel playing in a real game than in an intrasquad game against your teammates. I am ready to go and excited about tonight."

Roundup: Canadiens defeat Penguins in Quebec City

Tuesday, 09.29.2015 / 12:39 AM / News

QUEBEC CITY -- The Montreal Canadiens played what was supposed to be a home game Monday.

It just didn't feel like one.

Playing the first NHL game at the brand new Videotron Centre, a building the city hopes will be home to its own NHL team one day, the Canadiens hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins in a preseason game in what was once extremely hostile territory.

It's been 20 years since that was the case, when the Quebec Nordiques moved away and became the Colorado Avalanche in 1995-96. An entire generation of people were born and have come of age since then, but that feeling remains.

Quebec City remains hostile territory for the Canadiens.

"It was probably 50/50," said Canadiens center David Desharnais, a native of nearby Laurier-Station, Quebec. "But that's the way it is here."

There were many red Canadiens jerseys among the sellout crowd of 18,259, but the people wearing those jerseys weren't very loud, or at least they weren't allowed to be.
