Injury notes: Hartnell, Red Wings, Lupul, Gagne, Faksa, Weiss, Atkinson, Meszaros and Lombardi


  • Adam Kimelman of NHL.com: Flyers winger Scott Hartnell will be out 4 to 8 weeks with broken first metatarsal in his left foot according to GM Paul Holmgren.

    “Right now we’re trying to decide, talking to the doctor, what the best way to proceed is as far as how to approach this,” Holmgren said before the Flyers’ game against the New York Rangers. “I can’t give you a time frame. It’s probably going to be between four to eight weeks. … Obviously it’s a significant injury.”

    Holmgren on Daniel Briere:

    “He’s getting better,” Holmgren said. “I would say he’s maybe 50-50 on the weekend. I’ll have a better idea after the game.”

  • Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News: Henrik Zetterberg skated with Damien Brunner and Johan Franzen. Pavel Datsyuk stated with Valtteri Filppula and Todd Bertuzzi. Filppula left practice early to rest his knee. Forwards Darren Helm and Todd Bertuzzi, defenseman Jakub Kindl should be available tonight. Jonathan Ericsson will be a game-time decision.
  • Jason Gregor via twitter: Kings winger Simon Gagne had a tumor the size of a tennis ball removed from his neck in the summer. Headache free now.
