Blues forward Schwartz returns to practice

Wednesday, 01.20.2016 / 4:14 PM / News

St. Louis Blues forward Jaden Schwartz practiced Wednesday for the first time since surgery to repair a fractured left ankle Oct. 23.

Schwartz, who had 28 goals and 35 assists last season, has four assists and a plus-4 rating in seven games this season. Coach Ken Hitchcock would not speculate when Schwartz would return for the Blues (27-15-7), who are in third place in the Central Division.

He sustained the injury while taking part in a warmup drill. He shot a puck and reached to get the rebound when he lost an edge and crashed into the net where goalie Brian Elliott was practicing. The initial diagnosis was Schwartz would miss at least 12 weeks; Friday will be 13 weeks since the injury.

Senators' Wikstrand loaned to Swedish team

Wednesday, 01.20.2016 / 4:09 PM / News

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators announced today that the club has loaned defenceman Mikael Wikstrand to Färjestad BK of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL) for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

"After further conversations with both the player and his representatives, it appears that playing hockey in North America is not a consideration for Mikael at any point in the immediate future," said Senators general manager Bryan Murray. "In an effort to further monitor his development, we have agreed to loan Mikael to Färjestad for the remainder of the season. We will retain his North American rights and should he change his outlook on working towards playing in the National Hockey League, we will be open to discussing a potential return at an appropriate time in the future."

Hurricanes place goalie Ward on injured reserve

Wednesday, 01.20.2016 / 2:28 PM / News

Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward was diagnosed with a concussion and placed on injured reserve, the Hurricanes announced Wednesday.

Ward started last Friday and allowed three goals on 22 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks, ending his three-game winning streak. He's 14-11-5 with a 2.42 goals-against average, .905 save percentage and one shutout in 32 games this season.

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said he wasn't sure when Ward sustained his concussion.

"His symptoms started to come on and felt worst as he went and then he got tested and now he goes through the protocol," Peters told the Hurricanes website. "Obviously it's gotten worse as it's went along. Hopefully it's not a long-term thing."

* Chicago is the fifth defending Stanley Cup champion to win at least 12 straight games in the League's modern era, joining the 1970-71 Boston Bruins (13-0-0), 1981-82 New York Islanders (15-0-0), 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins (17-0-0) and the 2000-01 New Jersey Devils (13-0-0), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Bruins, Canadiens united in support for Laing

MONTREAL – Prior to the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins renewing their rivalry for the 911th time in their history, a video was shown on the Bell Centre scoreboard, and the starting lineups of both teams moved back from their respective blue lines to watch.

The video was a tribute to Denna Laing, the player with the Boston Pride of the National Women's Hockey League who was injured during the Outdoor Women's Classic one day prior to the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic between these teams at Gillette Stadium.

There were 12 players on the ice watching the touching video, which encouraged fans to bid on the Winter Classic jerseys the Canadiens and Bruins were wearing in the game. The proceeds from the auction are earmarked to help Laing during her recovery. But the moment hit home for one player in particular.

Red Wings' Miller out 4-6 months, Kronwall 2-4 weeks

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 1:56 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings forward Drew Miller had surgery to reconstruct his left ACL and will miss 4-6 months and defenseman Niklas Kronwall is out 2-4 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery, according to the Red Wings website.

Miller, who hasn't played since Jan. 10, has one goal and one assist in 28 games this season.

"He's an elite penalty killer, there's no question," coach Jeff Blashill told the Red Wings website. "That doesn't mean that our penalty kill can't do a great job. We've got guys, we've been using (Justin Abdelkader) more, we've been starting to use Dylan Larkin more, (Tomas) Jurco at different times has had reps on the PK in practice. We're going to have to find a mix of guys that can get it done."

Canucks' Etem faces Rangers hoping to make impact

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 1:50 PM / News

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Forward Emerson Etem was relatively ineffective in nine games at Madison Square Garden as a member of the New York Rangers this season before he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks on Jan. 8 for minor-league prospect Nicklas Jensen.

Etem returns Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; SNP, MSG) hoping to make a bigger impact at the Garden, only this time for the visiting team.

"I'm starting to gain more confidence," Etem said, "and hopefully I can come in here and show the fans something."

Etem didn't show the Rangers much in the 19 games he played for them this season. He was a healthy scratch in 21 games, which was disappointing for the Rangers, who acquired Etem at the 2015 NHL Draft in a trade that sent left wing Carl Hagelin to the Anaheim Ducks.
