Granlund out 2-4 weeks, Brodin out 8 … Korpikoski re-ups with TPS … Tlusty could head to KHL … DiPietro says he’s not injured

  • Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: Wild’s Mikael Granlund will be out 2 to 4 weeks with a lateral right ankle sprain. He’s in a walking boot and rehabbing in Houston.

    “He’ll be able to start doing more next week and is walking pretty good, but we wanted to make sure, and mercifully, this is not the worst case scenario,” Fletcher said. “It’s relatively good news. It’s not a knee or high ankle sprain or anything like that. It’s a common ankle sprain.”

    In the same game that Granlund was injured, Jonas Brodin broke is clavicle and is out for at least 8 weeks. Brodin was meeting with doctors yesterday afternoon to determine if they’ll allow the bone to heal by itself or to insert a plate.

  • Matias Strozyk via twitter: Coyotes Lauri Korpikoski signed a 6 game contract with TPS. He had played 5 games for them already, scoring 4 goals and adding 6 assists.
  • Matias Strozyk via twitter: Jiri Tlusty may be leaving Kladno to head to Atlant Mytishchi of the KHL soon. He could return to Kladno in January if the lockout continues.
  • Brett Cyrgalis of the NY Post: Rick DiPietro said it’s “not true at all” of the reports from a German newspaper that he has a groin injury. “I’m feeling good,” DiPietro wrote in a text message, “and I’m looking forward to the next game.”

Parise shut down … Zetterberg injured … Wideman out for 1st round … Oilers draft options … No disciplinary action for Turco

  • Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: So Zach Parise has been shut down for the rest of the season by the team, it’s not injury related, just precautionary. Parise will be a RFA at season’s end and the Devils could file for arbitration which would prevent teams from signing Parise to an offer sheet. This would mean he’d have to sign a 1 year deal. He’s open to signing a long term deal.
  • Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Milan Hejduk posted his 11th consecutive 20 goal season, and will be a UFA on July 1st. The 35 year old makes $3 million this year, and when asked about his future, “We’ll see what happens.” His family likes the area, and the Avalanche are going to have to spend some money to get to the salary cap floor next year.
  • Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg left last night’s game half way through the 1st period with a lower body injury. He as hit by Bryan Allen. “All I know is he got his leg tangled up,” coach Mike Babcock said. “He probably won’t play through the weekend. We’ll see after that.”
  • Katie Carrera of the Washington Post: Capitals coach Bruce Broudreau thinks that defenseman Dennis Wideman will miss at least the 1st round of the playoffs. “We don’t know,” Boudreau said when asked if there was any timeline for Wideman’s return. “It’s one of those things that, again, this time next week we’ll know a lot more than we know now, but it depends on how his rehab goes and how quick he takes to it.”
  • Jim Matheson via twitter: Matheson thinks that if the Oilers want a player who can play right away, they’ll draft Adam Larsson. If they want to wait at least a year, they’ll draft Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. They may also try to package the pick they got from LA in the Penner deal and a 2nd rounder to move up in the draft. They like center Mark McNeil but Oils may have to move into the top 12 with their 2nd 1st round pick if they decide to draft Larsson or Gabriel Landeskog. MyNHLdraft has the Oilers picking Nugent-Hopkins 1st overall, and defenseman Jonas Brodin with their 2nd 1st round pick.
  • Chris Kuc via twitter: NHL deputy commish Bill Daly said there will be “No investigation and no action” in an email regarding Marty Turco’s betting with a fan.
  • George Richards via twitter: The Panthers signed Quinton Howden to an entry level deal yesterday. (He was 1st round pick last year, 25th overall)
