“We’ll get an evaluation to see how ‘Osh’ feels (after practice) and how he looked and then we’ll evaluate it (Tuesday),” Hitchcock said.

- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: Blue T.J. Oshie left last night’s game in the second period with an apparent rib injury. Oshie went to hit Sharks Brent Burns but ended up on the ice in pain. Alex Steen was held out last night. The Blues could be interested in college free agent Dan Dekeyser.

Scouting the Stars … Nonis on Bozak and MacArthur … Oshie Sued … Granlund Reassigned … Montador Clears Waivers
- Dallas Morning News: From Dennis Bernstein and Mike Heika: the Bruins, Penguins, Maple Leafs, Blue Jackets, Wild and Rangers have scouted the Dallas Stars the last two games. The Stars scouted the Bruins-Senators game on Monday. Bruce Garrioch noted that the Bruins, Penguins and Flyers are looking for scoring help, and that the Stars have a decision to make regarding Brenden Morrow. Morrow has a no-trace clause.
- Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun: Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis is unlikely to offer contract extensions to Tyler Bozak and Clarke MacArthurin the next month, though that can change, nor is he going to trade them just because they will be free agents at the end of the year. Nonis is open to trading both players, as he is with many others, but a deal would happen because of what they could get back and not about their contracts.
“I’ve never had a problem with a player who was going to be a UFA staying with the team after the trade deadline and then working something out at a later date,” Nonis said on Monday.
“Right now both Tyler and Clarke are playing well and seem to be happy.”
“Right now, I don’t feel compelled to move anyone by April 3. And I would have to say, at least at this time, I don’t expect anything to happen (extension-wise) by that date either, although things can change.”
The Leafs are open to bringing in a rental player, but it has to make sense in the short and long term.
“But here’s the thing with that,” he explained. “If you are willing to bring in a rental player, why wouldn’t you keep guys (like Bozak and MacArthur) who are already on your team? They have the same contract status as rent-a-players.”
- Eric Macramalla via twitter: Blues forward T.J. Oshie is being sued by his landlord for $12,000 after his dogs damaged the apartment.
- Michael Russo via twitter: The Wild have assigned Mikael Granlund to the AHL. He’d been a healthy scratch in four of the last eight games.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: Blackhawks Steve Montador cleared waivers.
- Mark Stepneski via twitter: Stars Ray Whitney is in tonight. Brenden Morrow and Jamie Benn are likely out.
Sunday Morning Hits: CBA, Malkin, Benn, Glencross, Gunnarsson, Steen, Tarasenko, Backlund, Leighton and Hedberg
- Eric Macramalla via twitter: The NHL and NHLPA have agreed on a final draft of the CBA. It has been sent to all NHLPA agents and members. It is subject to minor modifications.
- Pittsburgh Penguins via twitter: Evgeni Malkin suffered an upper-body injury, not a head injury. He was kept out of the last part of the 3rd period and OT for precautionary reasons.
- Mark Stepneski of Stars Inside Edge: Stars forward Jamie Benn left last night’s game after taking a hit from Coyotes Martin Hanzal.
- Calgary Flames via twitter: Flames Curtis Glencross missed last night’s game with an upper-body injury. He’s returning to Calgary today to be re-evaluated.
- Jonas Siegel of TSN: Maple Leafs Carl Gunnarssonexpects his hip issue to linger all season.
“It’s good,” he told TSN.ca before Saturday’s game. “It’s tough playing back-to-backs and all that, [but] it’s actually been better than I thought. It’s going in the right direction every day here. It’s getting better actually.”
- Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch: Blues T.J. Oshie briefly left in the second period with a shoulder or arm injury. After the game he had some test, which came back negative.
- Lou Korac via twitter: Both Alex Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko were on the ice yesterday morning.
- Calgary Flames via twitter: The Flames activate Mikael Backlund from the IR and assigned Sven Baertschi to Abbotsford of the AHL.
- Chris Nichols via twitter: The Flyers recalled goalie Michael Leighton and sent down Brian Boucher.
- Rich Chere via twitter: Johan Hedberg will start in net for the Devils.
- Will DePaoli of Inside Pittsburgh Sports: It may take weeks for Shane Doan to make a decision. “Serious negotiations” haven’t taken place between Doan and Penguins yet, but they appear to be the short-list of teams he’d considered. Doan’s camp is becoming more skeptical of Jamison’s bid to buy the team. The Canadiens may be a sleeper team if Doan looks elsewhere. The Sabres have made a big 4 year offer.
- Josh Yohe via twitter: Doan’s agent: “We are still hoping this thing in Phoenix is going to work out.” … “It would be premature to say Pittsburgh is definitely a possibility. We plan to narrow it to 4-6 teams by the weekend.” On the possibility of signing a short term deal: “I don’t see that happening.”
- Andy Strickland via twitter: T.J. Oshie’s hearing is set for 9:00 am on Friday, and there a decent chance that they agree on a contract before then.
- Andy Strickland of True Hockey: The Blues and T.J. Oshie are expected to be in Toronto today to exchange files before their Friday arbitration hearing. They are still talking in hope to avoid arbitration. Strickland thinks that David Backes $4.5 million cap hit is an internal cap. The Blues and Oshie may agree on a short term deal if a long term one can’t be worked out.
- QMI Agency in the Toronto Sun: Hockey Night in Canada’s Andi Petrillo said the Maple Leafs made an offer for Jonathan Bernier. Brian Burke has said he’s looking for a proven goalie. Earlier this month Burke said,
“We’re not looking at that avenue,” Burke told The Fan. “A couple goalies that moved are young, unproven guys. That’s an avenue were not interested in. We’ve kicked the tires, looked at all the prices, but that’s not an avenue we’re looking at.”
- James Mirtle via twitter: Mirtle would be surprised if they Leafs were that interested in Bernier after all of Burke wanting a veteran goalie talk.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: 2 teams have shown interest in P.J. Axelsson according to his agent. The 37 year old has 1 year left on his Frolunda contract. Joe Haggerty via twitter: Confirms that 2 teams have expressed interest in Axelsson. Aaron Ward via twitter: Ward points out that Axelsson doesn’t have an “Out Clause” in his current deal that would facilitate a move.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Avs Ryan O’Reilly is the only player that they don’t have under contract for next year. Dater wonders if Matt Duchene’s 2 year, $7 million deal hurt O’Reilly’s leverage. Both players came up at the same time, and Duchene put up more points in their 1st 2 years, but O’Reilly had a better season last year. It wouldn’t be a big deal if they didn’t have something worked out until next month.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: While Evander Kane and the Jets are talking, there is nothing imminent.
- Matias Strozyk via twitter: Sport-Express reporting that Cal O’Reilly signed a 2 year deal with KHL’s Metallurg.
Bolland for Luongo a bad idea … Leafs make offer for Bernier … Jets – Kane talking long-term … No truth that Gagner re-signed … Flyers offered Parise $105 million
- Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago: Rogers shoots down the rumor of the Blackhawks reportedly offering Dave Bolland for Roberto Luongo, “There are so many reasons this would be a bad idea it’s hard to pick the best one.”
- Andi Petrillo via twitter (Hockey Night in Canada): Petrillo is hearing that the Maple Leafs have made an offer for Jonathan Bernier. Dennis Bernstein via twitter: Bernstein has no clue why the Kings would send Bernier to the Maple Leafs for Clarke MacArthur or Matt Frattin as they don’t have a need at forward. They’ll wait for a desperate GM to overpay. Aaron Portzline via twitter: The Blue Jackets are interested in Bernier.
- Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press: The Jets and Evander Kane are working on a long-term contract for up to 6 years. It should get completed long before training camp. John Tavares and Phil Kessel’s contracts are being used as examples. Tavares signed a 6 year, $33 million deal. Kessel signed a 5 year, $27 million deal. If for some reason they went to a shorter deal, James Neal and Logan Couture could be used.
- Jeff Marek via twitter: ZERO truth to rumor that Sam Gagner signed an extension with the Oilers. Jason Gregor via twitter: Gregor spoke with someone from Gagner camp, have not signed a 4 year deal, still negotiating. Jeff Marek via twitter: Hard to believe that Gagner would sign a 4 year deal worth $13 million when David Perron signed a 4 year, $15.25 million deal. Gagner has produced more.
- Jeremy Rutherford via twitter: Blues GM Doug Armstrong is headed to Toronto today for T.J. Oshie’s arbitration case that is on Friday. A deal is still possible beforehand, but nothing is imminent. They have discussed deals in the 4 to 6 year range.
- Josh Rimer via twitter: A ‘SOLID’ source said the Flyers made the biggest offer to Zach Parise on July 1st, $105 million. Source also said the the Penguins and Blackhawks offered shorter term contracts than the Wild, but the money was the same. The Devils offer was over $80 million.
- Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Kyle Cumiskey signed with Modo of the Swedish Elite League. He played with the Ducks AHL affiliate last year.
