No bargaining talks scheduled … Clowe the coach … 3 temporarily return to N.A. … SKA looking for NHL experienced coach

  • Katie Strang via twitter: Bill Daly and Steve Fehr were in contact over the weekend. No future bargaining sessions are scheduled.
  • David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News: Sharks Ryane Clowe continues to practice with the SF Bulls of the ECHL. On game nights, he’s the assistant coach and handles the defense. Clowe said about 95% of the players are behind Don Fehr. He’s in the last year of his deal with the Sharks, and it’s one reason why he’s chosen not to play during the lockout, though that can change.

    “A lot of guys have two- or three-year deals. When you’re heading into UFA you don’t want to take a chance. But I understand whatever you do, it’s risky and it’s not just if I played here. Guys in Europe, you see guys getting injured over there.

    “Withing the next few weeks, we’ll know more here and then you make a decision.”

  • Szymon Szemberg via twitter: Despite being 1st in the KHL, SKA released their coach and are looking to bring in someone from North America with NHL experience according Pavel Lysenkov.

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: 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.”
