- Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post Dispatch: Erik Johnson practiced with the Blues yesterday and there is a chance he could play tonight. There’s a chance Alex Pietrangelo plays tonight as well.
- Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun: Christian Ehrhoff practiced with Canucks teammates yesterday for the first time since December 8th when he suffered a head injury. It was initially thought to be a concussion but turned out to be a vertigo issue.
- Mike Ziesberger of the Toronto Sun: There’s a chance that Nazem Kadri will be a healthy scratch tonight versus the Canucks. He was practicing with the 4th line yesterday.
“I need to understand that chipping the puck in is not such a bad thing. The little turnovers at their blue line and at our blue line are things I need to change.
“I’ll get it right. I’ll get my head around it. It caught me off-guard a bit. I’ve been going hard and I think things have been going pretty good but I guess there are things I need to improve.”

Brian Campbell 2 weeks away? Lebda in, Gunnarsson out … Nieuwendyk in tough spot … Matt Green 7-10 days away?
- Andy Stickland via twitter: Was told that Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell is about 2 weeks away from returning to the line up.
- James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail: Despite being 4-0 the Leafs are expected to make one line up change for tonight, Brett Lebda will replace Carl Gunnarsson, who only played 6 minutes on Friday after being benched by Ron Wilson.
- Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun: As many people have already figured out, the Edmonton Oilers are not in a hurry to rid themselves of Sheldon Souray.
“We’ve tried to find a hockey deal for the last year, and the next thing is either placing him on re-entry waivers or waiting until the spring and making a hockey trade,” Tambellini said.
“A cash asset now or trade asset later — that’s what we’ll have to evaluate now.”
Brad Richards now finds himself as the number one offensive free agent next summer after Joe Thornton signed an extension with the Sharks. Without new ownership in place, it’s extremely difficult for GM Joe Nieuwendyk to hammer out a new long term deal. Nieuwendyk said at some point he’ll have to talk to the league as he’ll need to figure out to keep him or trade him at the deadline (Richards has a no movement clause).
“Tom Hicks and Joe Nieuwendyk are in charge of the day-to-day business decisions in Dallas,” said NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly. “But due to the possibly imminent sale of the club, major financial transactions — especially those that may have lasting impacts on the club’s operations moving forward — are, as a matter of practice, vetted through the league.”
Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider: Los Angeles Kings defenseman Matt Green returned to practice on Sunday. Green had off-season shoulder surgery, and it’s possible that he returns to lineup in the next 7-10 days. Green also got a foot infection from ‘lace bite’ last week.
“I have no idea right now,” Greene said after practice today. “I feel pretty good. I was feeling pretty good before I was off the ice, and this is my first day back skating, so we’ll see how I feel tomorrow. I feel good right now, but I might be dying tonight. We’ll see what happens. I think it just depends on taking a hit, too. I haven’t really gotten a heavy bump yet, or any of that. The guys have been pretty nice to me, so that’s what it depends on right now.”
- Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News: Alexei Kovalev is in coach Cory Clouston’s doghouse, and if the Ottawa Senators could trade him, they would. Adrian Aucoin may be the last player in the NHL to use a wooden stick.
- Andy Strickland via twitter: New St. Louis Blues defensive pairing: Colaiacovo with Johnson, Pietrangelo with Jackman, and Brewer with Polak.
- Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Anaheim Ducks rookie Cam Fowler left the game last night after scoring his 1st NHL goal. Fowler took a questionable hit from Shane Doan, the extent of the injury is not yet known.
- Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago: The demotion of Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy surprised some. The Hawks may feel he’s not ready to log 19+ NHL minutes, and was playing on the out of position. Niklas Hjalmarsson is coming off his suspension, and Jassen Cullimore was recalled.
