Craig Adams to Pittsburgh

Craig Adams was picked up by the Pittsburgh Penguins. From Empty Netters:

TSN just reported the Penguins claimed forward Craig Adams off waivers from the Blackhawks. No mention of Miroslav Satan’s status which means he has presumably cleared waivers.

EN Says: Adams is your prototypical fourth-line grinder who can help in the penalty kill. He’s physical, plays defense and bring energy. Don’t expect goals out of this guy. He brings some playoff experience as well having made two runs to the Cup final with the Hurricanes and winning a ring in 2006.

Ovechkin Injures Foot In Practice

via Tarik El-Bashir of Capitals Insider,

Alex Ovechkin just left practice after taking a slap shot off of his right foot. He went to the bench in obvious pain, removed his skate and then was helped to the dressing room by a trainer.

Update:A team spokesman just told reporters that the injury is not believed to be serious. But judging from Ovechkin’s reaction—he smashed a stick or two on the way to the dressing room—this bears still watching.
