  3. Pierre-Marc Bouchard puts comeback from concussion problems on ‘pause’

    Nov 5, 2010, 10:38 PM EDT

    Sadly, the reports regarding Pierre-Marc Bouchard being close to a return from concussion problems seem hasty.

    In the interest of injury-related housekeeping, here are two little tidbits. TSN reports that Tomas Plekanec missed tonight’s game against the Buffalo Sabres with “flu-like” symptoms. In the off-season I said that the Montreal Canadiens basically chose Plekanec and goalie Carey Price over playoff hero Jaroslav Halak. That decision actually is working out well for…

    You never know with the New Jersey Devils, but it sounds like Martin Brodeur’s injury isn’t too severe.

  8. Zach Parise will undergo arthroscopic surgery to determine cause of knee problems

    Nov 1, 2010, 8:41 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    It’s been a surprising first month for winger Zach Parise and the New Jersey Devils. Instead of assuming their typical perch atop the Atlantic Division, the Devils are making themselves comfortable in the league’s cellar. Rather than worrying about re-signing Parise to a contract extension after benefiting from his bargain $3.1 million annual salary cap…

  9. Sabres forward Jason Pominville cleared to play, will suit up Wednesday

    Jason Pominville

    Finally the Buffalo Sabres have some good news to deal with. After having such a rough start to their season, they can take solace in knowing that injured forward Jason Pominville will be back in the starting lineup on Wednesday night. Pominville has been out with a concussion since being the recipient of a hit…

    Tim Brent, Darroll Powe

    One time Flyers starting goalie Michael Leighton is back on the ice rehabbing his injured back. But will he have a job when he returns to the Flyers lineup?

  14. Andrei Markov set to return for the Habs tonight

    Oct 30, 2010, 3:24 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Some might say that the team is better off without him, at least if they just look at wins and losses. They made the playoffs with him playing hurt or missing games completely, then beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the playoffs after Matt Cooke sidelined him with a vicious but clean…

  15. Injury updates: Jason Spezza, Kris Versteeg should be back tonight

    There’s been a mix of good (Ondrej Pavelec) and bad (Bryan Little) injury news so far today, but here are two new positive bits from Canadian teams. First, word from the Ottawa Senators is that dynamic center Jason Spezza should be back after missing four games with a groin injury, according to TSN. Ottawa is…

  16. Ondrej Pavelec will get his first start since the collapse tonight

    Oct 30, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Comments Off
    Ondrej Pavelec

    We’ve speculated that Ondrej Pavelec might start for the first time since that scary collapsing incident (and the concussions that resulted from it) this week, but it seems just about official. Chris Vivlamore reports that he will indeed start instead of Chris Mason tonight. Mason won his last two starts, including Friday’s game against the…

  17. Ray Emery skates for the first time since last spring, hopes to make NHL comeback

    Oct 29, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Some people thought that Ray Emery would never play hockey again after a rough hip injury, but the eccentric puckstopper hopes to return to the ice some day.

  18. Video: Marian Hossa leaves game with ‘upper body injury’

    Oct 28, 2010, 10:52 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    Tough news for the Chicago Blackhawks last night, as super-skilled Marian Hossa left Wednesday’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with an upper body injury. You can see video of the injury at the bottom of this post. Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune caught up with Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, who wasn’t sure about…

  20. Kings place Drew Doughty on ‘retroactive’ IR, will miss at least next two games

    Oct 25, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The Los Angeles Kings were hoping that Drew Doughty would recover enough from concussion problems to return to the ice for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, but that’s not going to happen. In fact, the team apparently placed Doughty on the injured reserve, according to the Los Angeles Times. While that means the all-world…

  21. Montreal Canadiens target Friday or Saturday return for Andrei Markov

    Oct 25, 2010, 2:39 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Good news out of Montreal, although it seems like things are still in the air a bit for valuable defenseman Andrei Markov. TSN has the word on the talented offensive defenseman’s injury status. Andrei Markov was cleared for contact drills Monday and the club will seek final clearance from team doctors later this week. They are…

  22. Atlanta Thrashers activate Ondrej Pavelec from IR

    Oct 25, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    Comments Off
    Ondrej Pavelec

    While this afternoon brought about its fair share of bad news, there are at least a couple pockets of sunshine. Take, for instance, the fact that the Atlanta Thrashers activated Ondrej Pavelec from the injured reserve (and sent backup Peter Mannino to the minors) today. As you may remember, Pavelec suffered a concussion after a…

  23. Bruins D Johnny Boychuk will miss about four weeks with arm injury

    Oct 25, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    At some point, you almost wonder if the Boston Bruins should consider making hospital scrubs their next alternate uniform. The team is dealing with injuries to key components such as Marc Savard and Marco Sturm and certainly didn’t have an easy time last season. Add another important player to the injured reserve because defenseman Johnny…

  24. Vancouver’s Alex Burrows and Chicago’s Brian Campbell nearing return from injury

    Oct 24, 2010, 10:15 AM EDT

    Comments Off

    A pair of key players for Western Conference contenders are getting close to returning to their teams lineups. In Chicago, defenseman Brian Campbell is back on his skates and working out after injuring his right knee during training camp. Campbell being out of the lineup has thinned things out for the Blackhawks, but they haven’t…

  25. Ville Leino listed as ‘questionable’ for Saturday’s game after collision with Chris Pronger

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    Comments Off
    Ville Leino

    Apparently Chris Pronger is such a destructive physical force that sometimes, he even hurts his own teammates. That happened during the Philadelphia Flyers’ light skate today, as Pronger knocked already-banged-up forward Ville Leino out of practice, according to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly. Now Leino is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.…
