Ilya Kovalchuk Injures Foot/Ankle?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Reports are circulating that Ilya Kovalchuk hurt his foot after taking a puck off of it, but as P.J. Stock pointed out on HNIC, it looked like he tweaked his knee or ankle on an innocent play in the corner.

He left in the first period and will not return.

Chris Chelios- Dictator

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Renaud Lavoie at RDS (translated),

Chris Chelios has played the elbow and stick throughout his career, but now with the Players Association NHL it seems to frighten his opponents.

The problem is that “opponents” are found in the same camp as him and do a good portion of NHLPA members who question his intentions now.

Several staff members and supporters, under cover of anonymity, say the former Canadiens defenseman took full control of the Association and he currently serves as a dictator.

The words are harsh against him, but nobody dares talk openly to the media now for fear of reprisals.

David Booth Taken Off Ice On A Stretcher

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Mike Richards of the Flyers caught David Booth of the Panthers with his head down after Booth made a pass just over the offensive blueline.

Went frame by frame on the reply, no elbow but Booth’s head but Richard’s shoulder did connect with Booth’s head.

Richards got a five and a game misconduct.

Randy Sexton, GM of the Panthers called it a late and dirty hit during the 2nd period intermission.

David Booth will remain in Philly but the good news is he is awake and has movement in his extremities. Radek Dvorak may be out for a while with what looks like a left knee injury.

Ron Wilson Ripped

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Sporting News,

Jim Thomson played for Ron Wilson in Anaheim, and the former Duck thinks Wilson is the reason for the Toronto Maple Leafs’ early-season struggles. He was a guest on Off The Record, and ripped his former coach.

“Ron Wilson is not a good coach,” Thomson told OTR in an interview picked up by TSN.ca. “Where it breaks down is he can’t motivate players, he doesn’t know what to do with players when there’s controversy and they are losing.”

Thomson was especially critical of Wilson’s handling of sophomore defenseman Luke Schenn who has struggled this season.

“When he calls out Luke Schenn three games into the season, a young player who’s their future, and starts beating the hell out of him ... You don’t call a player out in the media, you go behind closed doors,” Thomson said.

Moving Frolov Now May Not Make Fiscal Sense

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Spector at Fox Sports,

Sure, Frolov has value given his previous production and the fact that at 27 he’s now considered in his playing prime. That’s not why he’ll be tough to move in the autumn.

Frolov is being paid $4 million for this season, a number which most NHL teams would have trouble swallowing at this time of year. Not only does the return have to make sense for the Kings but the salary numbers have to fit for the club acquiring him.

If the Kings decide to put him on the trade block it’ll likely happen between January 1st and the NHL’s March 3rd trade deadline, excluding the two weeks in February when the league will shut down for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

Ovechkin and Artyukhin’s Slew Foots

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

On Thursday, the NHL suspended Evgeni Artyukhin of the Anaheim Ducks for three games for his slew footing of Matt Niskanen of the Dallas Stars.  Niskanen injured his head (probably a concussion) on the play.  He has not played since the Wednesday 4-2 Dallas victory where the incident occurred and is not expected to play tonight vs. St Louis.  On the night of the three game suspension, Alexander Ovechkin slew footed Rich Peverley of the Atlanta Thrashers.  This happened in the final minute of the Capitals 5-4 victory.  Peverley was not injured on the play, but it still looked like something that merits a suspension from the NHL. 

Artyukhin was suspended for three games and forfeits almost $35,000 in salary for his transgression.  Ovechkin was not suspended to his.  He was fined an undisclosed amount by the NHL (which under the current CBA is limited to $2500).

Everybody Plays Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHL.com,

Fifteen games … 30 teams … 600 players … 60 officials … 250,000-plus fans.

Just another Saturday night in the National Hockey League? Well, not quite.

For the second time this season and just the fourth time in history, the NHL will have all 30 teams in action on Saturday. Unlike Oct. 3, the previous instance this season in which every team played, there are no games in Europe and none scheduled for the afternoon—just 15 games scheduled to begin in a three-hour span, beginning a little after 7 p.m. ET.

continued and the schedule for tonight, including TV listings, can be viewed below…

Seabrook & Toews Out Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Chris Kuc of Icing at the Chicago Tribune,

The Blackhawks will be without captain Jonathan Toews and defenseman Brent Seabrook when they take on the Nashville Predators Saturday night at the United Center.

Toews was injured after taking a big open-ice check from Vancouver’s Willie Mitchell on Wednesday night. The center left that game and missed practice Thursday and Friday with what is believed to be a concussion. Seabrook also left Wednesday’s game in the third period with what is also believed to be a concussion.

Oshie Out After Emergency Apendectomy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Blues forward T.J. Oshie had an emergency apendectomy this morning and will be out of the lineup indefinitely, a source has told the Post-Dispatch.

Oshie went to the hospital Friday night, following the Blues’ 3-1 victory over Minnesota at Scottrade Center. He played 17 minutes, 33 seconds in the game.

The recovery time for the surgery varies from person to person. Blues goaltender Chris Mason had a similar surgery last season and missed approximately two weeks.
