    Guillaume Latendresse

    Much like Mike Ribeiro in Dallas, Minnesota Wild forward Guillaume Latendresse thrived once he left the glaring spotlight that comes with being a member of the Montreal Canadiens. After scoring only three points in 23 games for Montreal in 2009-10, Latendresse scored 25 goals and 12 assists to compile 37 points in 55 games in…

    Getting an injury prognosis courtesy of a player’s girlfriend might not be anything new. When that girlfriend is Elisha Cuthbert, however, we’re all ears.

    Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf left tonight’s game with a lower body injury. For a struggling team, losing anyone is a bad thing.

    I can’t say that it’s a huge surprise that Ryan Miller is struggling to back up his amazing 2009-10 season and Olympic stretch. That being said, I expected a mild drop-off (maybe a dip like Tim Thomas experienced from his 2008-09 Vezina-winning year to his not-as-bad-as-it-seemed season in 09-10) but things have been way worse…

    If you’ve been wondering why Zach Parise hasn’t quite looked like himself all year, you’ve got a good reason why now.

    If you thought that the rough start to the year for the New Jersey Devils couldn’t possibly get any worse, apparently you don’t believe in karma. During last night’s 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Parise ended up leaving the game early and did not play in the third period. Parise is listed as…

    While I haven’t been able to find an “official” video of the hit (click here for a Youtube version), Buffalo Sabres defenseman Shaone Morrisonn delivered a check on Atlanta Thrashers forward Bryan Little that left the former 30-goal scorer with a concussion and facial lacerations. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution passed along the report.…

    Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville might have been more “in the dark” than “coy” when he discussed Marian Hossa’s injury last night. Quenneville provided a few more scraps of detail about the situation today, but only gave the terse explanation that Hossa will only miss a couple weeks. Quenneville told ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rogers about…

  11. Leafs forward Colby Armstrong expected to miss 4-6 weeks with finger injury

    colbyarmstronginjured

    While I’ll always remember him for the part he played in a ridiculous local commercial when he was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Colby Armstrong is also known for his rugged style mixed with a touch of half-decent scoring ability. The Toronto Maple Leafs might have overpaid him a touch this summer, but he’s…

    You’d have to think that getting your nose broken would be a pretty standard injury in the NHL. Pucks are flying around, sticks get lifted, punches get thrown. These are all perils for your nose on the ice. It still hurts just the same, however, and for Anaheim Ducks forward Dan Sexton, a shot from…

    Manny Legace, Jason Spezza

    While he remains a member of the Ottawa Senators – at least for the time being – it’s been an awfully tough haul for Jason Spezza ever since he was booed off the ice once the team lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the playoffs. He dealt with trade rumors during the summer and now…

    While the Avalanche are already dealing with a concussion to captain Adam Foote, the man who was meant to step up and supply more of that physical play is dealing with troubles of his own now. During the Avalanche’s 6-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, defenseman Scott Hannan left the game in the second…

    The Colorado Avalanche are going to have to make due without defenseman and captain Adam Foote for an undetermined amount of time thanks to a concussion.

    This was mentioned briefly in the recap last night, but the Columbus Blue Jackets got some bad news Wednesday as rugged forward Ethan Moreau broke his right hand blocking a shot against the Anaheim Ducks last night. Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch writes that Moreau knew something was wrong right away and that he’ll…

    The Phoenix Coyotes put their big, two-way center Martin Hanzal on the injured reserve today, according to TSN. Hanzal reportedly will miss one or two weeks with a “lower body injury” that occurred in Sunday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks. The Yotes called up Andrew Ebbett to help fill the void, though not in a…

    While the Penguins and Brent Johnson are on a torrid pace, there’s no doubt that they must miss their four most noteworthy injured players: Jordan Staal, Zbynek Michalek, Brooks Orpik and Arron Asham. While it’s unclear when exactly the four will return to the ice, TSN passes along the good news that each skater at least took the ice on Tuesday, with Staal, Michalek and Asham actually appearing in practice with the team.

    Good news for the Detroit Red Wings: it sounds like Johan Franzen isn’t too banged up. While the sniping Swedish forward did admit that the Mark Fistric hit left him with a “mild concussion,” Franzen said that he was feeling quite a bit better and it doesn’t appear that he’ll deal with too many issues.…

    After missing Friday night’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with flu-like symptoms, Chris Kuc reports that Patrick Kane said he’s feeling better today and should be available for the Chicago Blackhawks’ game against the Buffalo Sabres tonight. Kane played every game during the 2009-10 season, so Blackhawks fans are not particularly accustomed to the…
