Ducks center Kesler scratched against Oilers

Wednesday, 04.01.2015 / 10:21 PM / News

NHL.com

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler was scratched from the game against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday to rest.

The move was expected because Kesler is healing from what is believed to be an arm injury. He participated in the morning skate but Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau wouldn’t say if Kesler would play against the Oilers at Honda Center.

Kesler has played in 78 games, the most by a Ducks player this season, along with left wing Andrew Cogliano. Kesler has 47 points, the most he’s had since scoring 49 in 2011-12.

Red Wings' Miller aims to play after scary injury

Wednesday, 04.01.2015 / 5:55 PM / News

DetroitRedWings.com

DETROIT – Fear instantly filled Drew Miller's thoughts as a skate blade sliced through the right side of his face Tuesday night at Joe Louis Arena.

"When it happened, my first reaction was, 'Oh my God, my eye is gone,'" Miller said, 17 hours after doctors needed 60 stitches to close two gruesome lacerations.

"It hit so hard … there was so much blood that I wasn't sure if it had clipped my eyeball or what had happened. I wasn't sure," Miller added. "I definitely feel very blessed that the skate didn't hit my eye. I was very lucky. Right now it's just dealing with the cut, the stitches and the soreness. Other than that my eye's good and I got on the ice today and felt pretty good."

NHL Public Relations

NEW YORKOttawa Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond, Calgary Flames center Jiri Hudler and Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the month of March.

FIRST STAR – ANDREW HAMMOND, G, OTTAWA SENATORS

Hammond went 10-1-1 with a 2.09 goals-against average and .930 save percentage to help the Senators (38-26-12, 88 points) complete an 11-3-2 March and climb within three points of the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. He allowed two or fewer goals in nine of his 12 appearances, including his first seven of the month. With his run, Hammond became the second goaltender in NHL history to yield two or fewer goals in each of his first 12 career starts (Frank Brimsek: 1938-39). Hammond also improved to 14-0-1 before suffering his first career regulation loss March 26 vs. NYR, becoming the first goaltender to record at least one point in each of his first 15 career starts since Patrick Lalime in 1996-97 (14-0-2). The 27-year-old White Rock, B.C., native has appeared in 18 games this season, compiling a 1.85 goals-against average, .938 save percentage and two shutouts. That includes an 8-0-1 record on the road, where he has a 1.08 goals-against average, .964 save percentage and both shutouts.

Blackhawks forward Kane returns to practice

Wednesday, 04.01.2015 / 2:48 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- It was April 1, but forward Patrick Kane joining the Chicago Blackhawks for practice Wednesday wasn't a hoax.

Kane's presence for a full team workout, wearing a white non-contact jersey, was real and impressive considering it was exactly five weeks since he had surgery Feb. 25 to repair a fractured left clavicle.

The estimated 12-week timetable hasn't changed and Kane is cleared only to take wrist shots, but seeing the highly-skilled right wing zip around the ice again, displaying elite stickhandling and mobility, was a breath of fresh air. The Blackhawks saw firsthand evidence that whenever Kane is cleared, he'll be ready to contribute right away.

"It's definitely a goal you work towards almost, to get one of your best players, if not your best player, in the lineup," forward Kris Versteeg said. "It's always something that's in the back of your mind."

Blues' Tarasenko day-to-day with lower-body injury

Wednesday, 04.01.2015 / 2:25 PM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury and was ruled out of the Blues' next game Thursday against the Calgary Flames.

Tarasenko was injured Monday against the Vancouver Canucks. He leads the Blues with 36 goals and 71 points in 76 games.

The Blues (46-23-7), who trail the Nashville Predators by four points for first place in the Central Division with two games in hand, are already without second-leading scorer Alexander Steen. Steen missed one game with a lower-body injury and his status for Thursday is uncertain.

St. Louis has six games remaining in the regular season.
