Quick Hits: Jokinen, Wallace and Daugavins on waivers, DeKeyser, Weiss, Sharp and Hossa

  • Michael Smith on NHL.com: The Hurricanes put Jussi Jokinen and Tim Wallace on waivers today. Jokinen has 5 goals and 5 assists in 30 games this season. He’s in the 2nd year of 3 year deal which pays him $3 million a season. Chris Johnston: There has been some interest in Jokinen. He won’t be sent to the minors if he clears. Jonathan Willis: Waiver order right now: FLA-COL-T.B.-PHI-CGY-EDM-BUF-PHX. Doesn’t see him getting past the Coyotes.
  • Jay Grossman: The Senators put Kaspars Daugavins on waivers.
  • Katie Strang: The Rangers won’t make an in-person pitch to college free agent defenseman Danny DeKeyser. They are not believed to be front runners and are focusing their efforts elsewhere.

Injury updates: Red Wings, Hurricanes and Blackhawks

  • Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: Red Wings Jimmy Howard left in the first period of last night’s game. Howard apparently was experiencing blurry vision after getting hit with a puck in practice.

    “I didn’t know about that,” Mike Babcock said. “He wasn’t seeing good or something like that.

    “He’ll get tested tomorrow, we’ll find out more.”

    Wings forward Mikael Samuelsson, who just returned from a groin injury, missed the game with a hand injury after getting hit by an Ian White shot during the morning skate. Johan Franzen expects to get back in the lineup on Thursday. Carlo Colaiacovo is skating and should return soon. Brendan Smith is hoping to return next week.

  • Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer: Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen will skate today and could return to practice soon according to coach Kirk Muller. Jeff Skinner, Tim Gleason, Tim Brent and Tim Wallace are all day-to-day. Gleason could skate today. It’s unlikely that Skinner will, ”there isn’t anything that tells me he’s going to skate tomorrow.”
  • Mark Lazarus of the Chicago Sun-Times: Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook is day-to-day after taking a puck “Uh, somewhere” according to coach Quenneville. Goalie Corey Crawford hasn’t practiced since last Thursday with an upper-body injury. He skated on his own before yesterday’s practice.

Ruutu re-signs with Canes … Most Avs up for grabs … Kings like Pominville and Stafford … Sabres trying to re-sign Gaustad

  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: Tuomo Ruutu and the Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to a 4 year contract extension with a salary cap hit of $4.75 million.
  • Adrian Dater via twitter: From some high ranking people “almost everyone on Avs in play except three or four guys.” If the Avalanche were to trade Paul Stastny, they need to take back almost as much salary to stay above the salary floor. Highly unlikely. Capgeek: The Avs can’t take back more than $3.9 million in cap hits without taking salary back.
