On the Colorado Avalanche

On the New York Rangers …
Steve Zipay: Coach Alain Vigneault is hopeful that Jesper Fast will be able to skate with the team in two weeks. Fast had hip surgery in June. He’s not expected to be able to return to the lineup until late October.
On the Detroit Red Wings …
Ansar Khan: Defenseman Niklas Kronwall said he’s not ready to play yet but is hopeful to get into one or two preseason games. His knee is fine, but his back seized up right before the start of training camp.
On the Minnesota Wild …
“It’s different than skating on my own and doing scripted drills and knowing where I’m going and what direction I’m going,” he added. “When I got out there today, it was 10 guys in the neutral zone and it was a little chaotic. You’ve got to react. That was a good step for me to be able to do that. Hopefully it keeps getting better and better.”
On the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Chicago Blackhawks …
James Mirtle of The Athletic: The NHL is going to investigate the Maple Leafs for their handling of ‘injured’ Joffrey Lupul – are they trying to circumvent the roster limit or salary cap? Other teams weren’t complaining about their Maple Leafs. The NHL is acting on Lupul’s comments on Instagram.
A lot of teams have complained about the Blackhawks and Marian Hossa ‘injury.’
The NHL is expected to have their investigation done by the start of the season.
