Injury Notes: Lightning, Leopold, Islanders, Getzlaf, Koivu, Emelin, Moore, Nash and Stempniak

  • Erik Erlendsson: The Lightning confirm that Steven Stamkos has a broken right tibia and will be out indefinitely. Nick Kypreos: The break isn’t overly complicated and participating in the Sochi Olympics may not be out of the question. Damian Cristodero: Stamkos’s dad said that “he seems to be okay” and “just hopeful the surgery goes well.” His dad was told that rehab could be three to six months but “but they’re just guessing.” Will depend on what is found during the surgery.
  • Damian Cristodero: The Lightning also lost Sami Salo to a lower-body injury and Keith Aulie to an upper-body injury.
  • Chris Nichols: Blues Jordan Leopold will have surgery later this week to repair a tendon in his right hand. He’ll be out for at least eight weeks.
  • Arthur Staple of Newsday: A source said it’s unlikely that Islanders Thomas Vanek (upper-body) is put on the IR. It’s unlikely he plays tonight, but he could be ready sometime this week. Lubomir Visnovsky (concussion) still hasn’t been cleared for off-ice training. Brian Strait (upper-body) could start skating soon, but is not close to returning. Cal Clutterbuck should be back on the ice today. Travis Hamonic will play tonight.
  • Eric Stephens: Ducks Ryan Getzlaf (upper-body) is with the Ducks and Saku Koivu isn’t. Sounding like Getzlaf missed Sunday’s game more as a precaution.
  • Renaud Lavoie: Canadiens Alexei Emelin is close to returning to the lineup.
  • Aaron Vickers of Calgary Flames.com: Flames Lee Stempniak is close to returning to the lineup. He’s been out since October 24th with a broken foot, and if he gets medical clearance, he could play as early as tonight.

    “It’s up to the coaches and the medical staff,” said Stempniak, who diagnosed himself as day-to-day. “Every day it’s been getting better but a lot of it depends on how it responds the next morning, make sure it doesn’t swell and make sure it feels good. I’ll wake up and re-assess tomorrow morning.”

  • Chris Johnston: Matthew Lombardi signed a one-year deal with Geneve-Servette in Switzerland.

Afternoon Hits: Clifford trade talk, Red Wings, Hurricanes and Rob Blake

  • Dennis Bernstain: League source saying the Kings are actively shopping Kyle Clifford. Contracts talks between the Kings and Clifford are far apart. Trade talk have started but nothing is imminent. They would likely only get a prospect/pick back for Clifford at most. The trade calls made by Kings could be in effort to bring down contract demands. League source saying that Clifford will be shipped out by the end of the month and the Canadiens are not in the mix, “No chance to MTL”
  • David Staple of the Edmonton Journal: Since the Oilers were interested in Cal Clutterbuck before he was dealt to the Islanders, it wouldn’t be surprising if they would have interest in Clifford.
  • Ansar Khan of MLive: The Red Wings would like to move out a couple players and may be sign a free agent, but it doesn’t look like that would happen any time soon.

    “We’re comfortable where we’re at right now,” Holland said Monday, after signing defenseman Brendan Smith to a two-year, $2.52 million contract. “Before we do anything we’d have to move somebody. It’s pretty quiet in the industry right now. Everybody probably is into a bit of a summer mode.”

    Once the Red Wings re-sign RFAs Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson, they will have 25 roster players. They are over the salary cap limit, but part of Daniel Alfredsson’s bonuses could be applied to 2014-15 cap number if need be.

    “We’d like to do a move or two, but I’m not sure we can,” Holland said. “If we can’t make a move I’m OK with our team and we’ll go to camp. If we can make a move and free up some money then certainly re-signing Dan Cleary is a possibility. But, unless we move somebody, we aren’t signing anybody.”

  • Chip Alexander: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said that Elias Lindholm could start the season with the team. Would be shocked if he doesn’t. Added Lindholm’s preference is to play center, but can play all forward positions. Could start on a line with Jeff Skinner.
