Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins out 6-8 weeks with hand injury

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 12:08 PM / News

Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a hand injury, coach Todd McLellan said Tuesday.

Nugent-Hopkins sustained the injury Monday in the second period of a 4-2 victory against the Florida Panthers when he blocked a shot by defenseman Dmitry Kulikov during a Florida power play. He left the ice 2:47 into the second period with Edmonton leading 2-0. He played 7:08 and had an assist on forward Taylor Hall's goal in the first period.

Nugent-Hopkins, the first pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, has eight goals and 22 assists in 46 games.

"He's a key player for us and a big-time player for our team," center Leon Draisaitl said. "Obviously now it's time for other guys to step up and kind of pick that up. He did everything -- he kills penalties, plays on the power play, he produces offensively, takes faceoffs ... all-around player. It's going to hurt but we have the skill and the players to replace him."

Zack Smith tied the score on a third-period penalty shot and Mika Zibanejad (0-1—1) had the decisive goal in the shootout as the Ottawa Senators rallied for a 4-3 win and snapped the San Jose Sharks' win streak at five games.

* Smith converted on the first penalty shot attempt of his NHL career (364 GP). It was also Smith's third shorthanded goal of the season (45 GP), eclipsing his single-season career high of two from 2011-12 (81 GP).

* Craig Anderson made 32 saves through 65 minutes and denied all three shooters in the shootout to pick up his third win in his past four games (3-1-0) and improve to 19-13-4 overall (2.79 goals-against average, .916 save percentage, two shutouts).

* The Senators have won four consecutive games vs. SJS dating to Feb. 28, 2015 (SJS: 0-3-1).

Drouin trade request creates buzz at AHL arenas

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- When Jonathan Drouin took the ice for Syracuse on Monday afternoon for its American Hockey League game against Rochester at Blue Cross Arena, the attendance was announced at 5,540, but that number didn't include the many NHL scouts here hoping to get a good read on him.

The Tampa Bay Lightning sent Drouin down to their AHL affiliate on Jan. 2. The next day, Drouin's agent, Allan Walsh, made public that his client in November had asked to be traded, and NHL scouts have attended Syracuse games in droves ever since.

Eight NHL scouts were listed as in attendance Monday for the game between Syracuse and Rochester, but others were there on their own to take a look at Drouin, the third pick at the 2013 NHL Draft.

"I try not to [think about the scouts], it gets in your head a little bit," Drouin said. "You try to focus on your game and the rest will settle itself."

Panthers executive Luukko celebrates streak in style

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Florida Panthers executive chairman Peter Luukko stood out when he wore a bright red suit to their game against the Edmonton Oilers at BB&T Center on Monday.

But Luukko was wearing the suit proudly.

Luukko wore the red suit as the result of a friendly wager he made with members of the Panthers front office during the holidays after they won five games in a row.

Luukko said if the streak reached 10 games, he would wear a red suit at a home game.

The Panthers extended their streak to a franchise-record 12 games, replacing the old mark by four games, with a victory against the Oilers at Rexall Place on Jan. 10 before losing in overtime at Vancouver the next night. The game against Edmonton on Monday is their first at BB&T Center since Jan. 3 when they beat the Minnesota Wild 2-1 for their ninth consecutive victory.

"I've been doing this for over 25 years and I might have one other 10-game winning streak," said Luukko, who joined the Panthers in February 2015 after working for the Philadelphia Flyers. "A little bit of a long shot, but I got my suit.

"I kind of like it. Hey, if it'll guarantee wins, I'll wear anything."

Blue Jackets' Hartnell apologizes to team for penalty

Monday, 01.18.2016 / 4:20 PM / News

Scott Hartnell apologized to his Blue Jackets teammates during the team’s end-of-practice stretch at center ice on Monday for taking a too many men on the ice penalty in the third period of Columbus’ 2-1 win against the Colorado Avalanche.

In the third period and the game tied at 1-1, Hartnell, a 15-year veteran, exchanged words near the Avalanche bench, and because of the delay, failed to get off the ice when the team was in the middle of a line change. Columbus was called for a penalty for too many men on the ice.

Hartnell was benched for the remainder of the game.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin might not return to the lineup until after the All-Star break because of an upper-body injury sustained Sunday against the New York Islanders.

Sedin did not practice with the team on Monday at AmeriHealth Pavilion in Newark, N.J.

"We'll probably send him back [to Vancouver] so he won't have any more games the rest of the road trip," Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. "Hopefully he'll be ready after the All-Star break. I think it's probably a 10-day injury or so."

Bruins center Krejci returns to practice

Monday, 01.18.2016 / 4:04 PM / News

Boston Bruins center David Krejci practiced Monday for the first time since sustaining an upper-body injury Dec. 27 against the Ottawa Senators.

Krejci will travel with the Bruins, who face the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre on Tuesday. He said practice Monday went well but he isn't 100 percent yet.

"It was kind of lonely here by myself, but it was good to get out there with the guys and get a real practice," Krejci told the Bruins website.

"I'd like to come back as soon as possible, but this kind of injury -- at this point, where I'm at now, it's kind of day-to-day, so we'll see how I feel [on Tuesday]. Hopefully better and see how it feels [Tuesday] in warmup."

Devils forward Cammalleri hopes to return Tuesday

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils left wing Mike Cammalleri hopes to return to the lineup against the Calgary Flames at Prudential Center on Tuesday.

Cammalleri has missed the past eight games with a hand injury he sustained at some point in a 3-0 win at the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 30. Despite his absence Cammalleri still leads the Devils with 35 points (14 goals, 21 assists) in 38 games.

"I tried some medical procedures to get back quicker, get some strength back and reduce the pain but I was unable to do it," Cammalleri said. "It's good to be back out there though and I hope to be in the lineup [Tuesday], but ultimately I don't make that decision."

Devils coach John Hynes said he wants to see how Cammalleri responds to practice on Monday. The coaching staff will reevaluate after the morning skate on Tuesday.
