- Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports: According to Expressen, Bobby Ryan is in talks with Mora of HockeyAllsvenskan. A rough translation from Aftonbladet:
“Yes, we’re looking at it, but there is nothing that is clear,” confirming the club director Peter Hermodsson [to] the newspaper.
Previously, Mora superstar Anze Kopitar during the lockout – who came to play with his brother. But since Mora also has two [international players], Tyler Gotto and Prestin Ryan, a strengthening of Bobby Ryan did not take place without the get go.
“Yes, that’s right. But because it’s not something that is done than I can not comment on that,” says Hermodsson.
Ryan previously stated in early October that he wouldn’t go overseas to take someone else’s job.
- Bill Meltzer via twitter: Claude Giroux’s injury is said to be just a ‘stinger.’ He received a medical examination, but it shouldn’t be serious.
- David Staples of the Edmonton Journal: Swedish reporter Johan Eriksson tweeted about Oscar Klefbom’s ”Shoulder injury suffered over a month ago. Will be going doing medical exam in Gothenburg and Edmonton soon.” When Staples asked for some more info, Eriksson said,
“Will do so in a couple of days. And recovery time for surgery, if that is what’s decided, is approximately six months. He says: ‘If the decision is surgery I will be out six months and playing more this season is out of the question. If that’s the case it’s just for me to start focusing on the next season.”
