Khan: Helm out with upper-body injury

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik



The Wings don't play again until Wednesday's tilt with the Rangers; the Griffins play in Chicago tonight.

Update: FSD showed Helm getting smeared into the boards by Weber and then going cheek-first into the boards when Seth Jones hit him, and then Helm left the game...

The Task at Hand

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Kate from Pa.-made in Detroit

After a pretty good bounce back on the West Coast the task at hand is to go into Nashville and grab two more points. This will be no easy task as the road weary Wings take on the Preds, who are #1 in the league right now.

Not to worry though, we have a Magic Man, with the Magic Hands, when it comes to playing the Preds.

None the less, everybody has to show up today. On time!

Red Wings-Predators game-day updates: Ouellet recalled to substitute for Smith

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

This certainly makes much more sense than recalling Xavier Ouellet for trade purposes, so, ahead of today's game between the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings (3 PM EST on FSD/FS Tennessee/Sportsnet/97.1 FM):

I had a feeling that Smith's hand was what was really acting up, and Khan added the following regarding Kyle Quincey's status:

Kyle Quincey isn't available because he's had only 45 minutes of practice time in the past nine days due to bone spurs in his ankle.

In any case, there are game previews to be read, including NHL.com's Brian Hedger's set-up...

The Calgary Flames At The Trade Deadline

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Treliving is in his first year as GM of the NHL club and he remains very patient and cognizant of the big picture despite his team's unexpected season. Sure, as stated, he'd love to make a trade to help the team make the playoffs. But he's not sacrificing important, high-end future assets to get it done. It has to make sense. And in a perfect world, it's a hockey deal and not a rental deal, getting a player who can help the Flames past this season. Treliving is a sharp guy, and despite the excitement in his market, I think the rookie GM won't get fooled by short-term goals.

About That Clarkson/Horton Trade

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- So the old adage, “If Wayne Gretzky was traded, anyone can be traded,” should be replaced by, “If Scott Gomez and David Clarkson were traded…”

The Maple Leafs essentially cleared $10.5M in cap space by dealing Clarkson to Columbus for Nathan Horton—Clarkson’s $5.5M they shed plus Horton’s $5M they will be able to replace when and if the club hits the upper limit and places the incapacitiated winger on LTI.

The Leafs finally have a management that is willing to take advantage of its financial might.

- Oh, and the best thing for Horton is that the NHL has a job waiting for him when he goes on LTI.

NHL Short Notes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Down 2-0 after 40 minutes, the Ducks scored four unanswered goals in the third period – including the tiebreaking marker by Corey Perry with 8:39 remaining in regulation – to pick up their fourth victory in their past five contests.
* At 39-17-7 (85 points), the Ducks moved within four points of the idle Predators (41-14-7, 89 points) for first place in the NHL standings. Nashville, however, holds one game in hand and owns the ROW tiebreaker (NSH: 35, ANA: 31).
* The Ducks improved to 7-0-2 in their past nine regular-season meetings with the Kings dating to Dec. 3, 2013, including a 3-0-1 mark in 2014-15. They conclude their season series on March 18 at Honda Center.

Xavier Ouellet Recalled By The Detroit Red Wings

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled defenseman Xavier Ouellet from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Ouellet, 21, has skated in 21 games with the Red Wings this season, recording three points (2-1-3) and a plus-four rating. He has also appeared in 32 games with the Griffins, notching 11 points (1-10-11) and a plus-10 rating. Since rejoining Grand Rapids on Feb. 9, the team has ridden an 11-game point streak (9-0-2-0) to claim the top spot in the Midwest Division for the first time this season. The Bayonne, France, native was also named to the AHL’s Western Conference All-Star Team. In 102 career AHL games, Ouellet has registered 28 points (5-23-28), a plus-13 rating and 42 penalty minutes. Originally drafted by Detroit in the second round (48th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Ouellet skated in 223 games with the QMJHL’s Montreal Juniors and Blainville-Boisbriand Armada from 2009-13, recording 160 points (41-119-160) and capturing a spot on the QMJHL First All-Star Team in back-to-back seasons (2012 and 2013). He also represented Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, picking up three points (1-2-3) in six games.
