Giguere could return to Ducks' lineup
Tuesday, October 9, 2007 | 12:50 PM ET
On Tuesday's edition of Hockey Night in Canada Radio at 4 p.m. ET (Sirius channel 122) join me and my co-host Kelly Hrudey as we welcome the NHL’s “First Star of the Week,” Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche to the show.
The sophomore has eight points in three games and lit the San Jose Sharks up for five points Sunday night while playing with Ryan Smyth and Milan Hejduk. He recorded a hat trick on opening night skating with Jaroslav Hlinka and Andrew Brunette against the Dallas Stars.
Around the League
- There is some talk that injured Ducks forward Samuel Pahlsson and netminder Jean-Sebastien Giguere could be back in the Anaheim lineup for Wednesday’s game against the Boston Bruins. Both underwent hernia surgeries in the off-season.
- Ducks players received their Stanley Cup rings Monday night at the home of owner Henry Samueli. Shawn Thornton, now with the Bruins, did not attend. He will get his ring before the game Wednesday at the Honda Center. And as Ducks GM Brian Burke told HNIC Radio Friday afternoon, the banner raising ceremony will be a brief affair.
- Boston centre Marc Savard had to leave the Bruins-Coyotes game Saturday night with an injury to one of his core muscles. Journeyman Glen Metropolit will take his place.
- The Islanders have signed defenceman Bryan Berard after Freddie Meyer did not clear waivers (he was claimed by the Phoenix Coyotes).
- Only one game in the NHL on Tuesday night as the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Carolina Hurricanes. Jason Blake, who revealed Monday that he is battling a rare form of leukemia, will be in the lineup and playing on a line with Mats Sundin and Nik Antropov.
- Both Cory Stillman and Bret Hedican made it through practice Monday and should both be in the lineup for the hurricanes Tuesday night. Stillman injured his torso in a car accident while Hedican had lost six pounds suffering from the flu.
- The prognosis on Martin Havlat’s right shoulder injury is not good but it could have been worse. The Black Hawks' winger will miss 4-6 weeks and hopes to avoid surgery. There was some concern that he might be lost for the season in Chicago. Patrick Sharpe will take his spot on a line with Robert Lang and Sergei Samsonov.
- Jose Theodore has been activated on the Colorado Avalanche roster after returning from knee surgery over the weekend. He is expected to start Friday in St Louis or Saturday in Columbus. Peter Budaj remains the No. 1 goalie, however, in Denver.
