Video- Bad Hit By Matthias?

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils coach Pete DeBoer said defenseman Anton Volchenkov suffered ““a pretty serious cut, 10-12 stitches” on his face on the hit by Florida’s Shawn Matthias in the first period of tonight’s 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

Volchenkov was not available to the media postgame, but the Devils said Volchenkov suffered a cut to the lip and had a bloody forehead, apparently from when he hit the ice.

Ilya Kovalchuk, who immediately went after Matthias to stick up for his teammate, thought it was a hit to the head that should be looked at by the NHL.

Is Volchenkov Headed To Washington?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

The A-Train appears to be getting ready for departure.

Five weeks before the opening of the NHL’s unrestricted free agent market, sources have confirmed that Senators defenceman Anton Volchenkov has put his Ottawa house up for sale.

All signs point to Washington as his next destination.

Talk is the Capitals are prepared to offer Volchenkov a salary in the $5 million-range, which would be a $1.8-million raise from his 2009-10 stipend. There is also the belief that the Caps will have star winger Alex Ovechkin call his comrade and sell him on moving to the D.C. area.

Senators May Not Be Able To Sign Anton Volchenkov

from James Gordon of the Ottawa Citizen,

General manager Bryan Murray didn’t sound very optimistic when asked Monday what the chances were of re-signing the shot-blocking wizard.

“I don’t know whether or not I’m going to be able to get him signed,” Murray told reporters while his players cleaned out their lockers for the summer. “Cap numbers…it’s going to be very difficult.

“We all have to work with budgets and numbers imposed by the league,” he continued. “We have three or four restricted free agents, young people, that even if we get them down to the numbers I’m hoping to get them done at — that’s usually not the case — that, budget-wise, we’ll be in a position where it’ll be difficult.”

Gagne Feels Lucky He Escaped Serious Injury

from Kevin Kurz of PhiladelphiaFlyers.com,

With another night to reflect on the hit that should have been a boarding minor at the very least, Gagne talked about the dangerous play this morning at the team’s practice facility.

“As a player, you play the game and it’s a physical sport. You expect to get hit, but you don’t expect to get hit from behind,” he said, “especially when you are hit a couple feet from the boards.

“If I was a bit closer to the boards and my neck had the full impact, we may be talking about something a lot worse than a stiff neck this morning.”

Volchenkov Hit On Carcillo

Anton Volchenkov hit on Dan Carcillo tonight.  Under the proposed new rules, is this a head shot?

Volchenkov Expects to Play Game #2

From Ian Mendes at Sportsnet.ca,

Anton Volchenkov told reporters on Thursday that he expects to play in Game 2 on Friday night in Pittsburgh, after leaving Game 1 with a head injury.

The defenseman said he did not suffer a concussion when he blocked a Evgeni Malkin shot with his forehead in the second period Wednesday night. He required 15 stitches to close the gash and says that if he is able to put on a helmet, he will suit up for Game 2. He did not participate in a full team practice in Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Volchenkov Suffers Hand Injury

from the Ottawa Sun,

To make matters worse, the Senators’ injury list is growing. Defenceman Anton Volchenkov could be out for an extended period after leaving the game with a hand injury after blocking a shot on the first shift.

While the Senators are fortunate Christoph Schubert was able to slide back and play on the blueline, losing Volchenkov is costly. He logs a lot of minutes and is usually assigned the job of shutting down the top players in the league with Jaromir Jagr and the New York Rangers visiting tomorrow at 2 p.m.

more on the Senators/Predators game last night…

update 10:33am, via TSN,

Sources tell TSN Anton Volchenkov suffered a broken finger last night when he blocked a shot and it’s expected the Ottawa Senator defenceman will be sidelined for four weeks.

Panthers’ Booth Leaves Game on Stretcher

From The Sports Network,

Florida Panthers left wing David Booth was removed from the ice on a stretcher during the second period of a game against the Ottawa Senators Saturday night.

Booth was in the offensive left corner when he was checked from behind by Ottawa defenseman Anton Volchenkov with 15:12 left in the period. Booth’s head went flush into the boards and he remained on his back until medical personnel assisted him to the stretcher.

Volchenkov was given a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct.


Update 10:45pm ET - George Richards at On Frozen Pond

Booth has been taken to the Ottawa Civic Hospital, said to be alert and moving around. The Panthers are optimistic doctors at the hospital will release him and he’ll be able to make the charter flight home. [...]

The hit by Volchenkov may have been in retaliation for a similar hit just moments earlier. There, Florida defenseman Branislav Mezei sent Nick Foligno into the boards. Foligno had to be helped off the ice…
