Tim Thomas has interest in returning to the NHL in 2013-14.

Thomas would also like to represent Team USA in the 2014 Olympics, but that's complicated. The NHL hasn't committed to playing in the Winter Games yet and Team USA might not take the aging goaltender after he skipped a season. If the NHL doesn't agree to play in the games then you might assume that Thomas would actually have the option of simply not playing in the NHL and joining Team USA as one of the few NHL-caliber players still on the squad, but that might not be the case. While his contract will end this season, the Boston Bruins are suspending him and have the option to toll his contract. In other words, the Bruins can control his rights for the 2013-14 campaign if they wish because he refused to play this season. If he does come back next season, it sounds like his preference is to play in Boston.

Andrew Desjardins has been suspended for two exhibition games by the NHL's Department of Players Safety.

Desjardins delivered an illegal check to the head of Devils forward Miles Wood last week. Missing preseason games isn't a big deal for most players, but Desjardins is attending Rangers camp on a professional tryout, so these two games could be the difference between getting a contract and being released.

Jonathan Drouin will miss Monday's exhibition game against Toronto because of an upper-body injury.

Drouin is currently listed as day-to-day. Torrey Mitchell will play in his place. Montreal will play three more preseason matches before opening the regular season on Oct. 5 at Buffalo.

Robby Fabbri will sit out the rest of training camp after re-injuring his surgically repaired left knee.

Fabbri said he felt good after returning to action on Saturday, so this news comes as a surprise. The Blues will re-evaluate his status in 10 days. St. Louis has been hit hard by injuries at training camp with Jay Bouwmeester, Alexander Steen and Zach Sanford joining Patrik Berglund on the injury list going into the regular season.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson suffered a lower-body injury in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Sharks and did not return.

Ekman-Larsson will be re-evaluated on Sunday but any down time will certainly hurt the Coyotes as Ekman-Larsson is their top player and by far their best blueliner. Ekman-Larsson needed help getting off the ice and that is never a good sign. Ekman-Larsson is capable of 20-plus goals and 50-55 points in a healthy season but this certainly won't help. Stay tuned as OEL was slated for a day off on Sunday anyway.

Coach Randy Carlyle put Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry back together in practice Saturday.

The duo spent plenty of time apart last season but were re-united in the playoffs when Patrick Eaves was injured. Eaves could wind up on the other side of Getzlaf and Perry once he returns from injury. Other line combinations for Anaheim as they head into the season were Rickard Rakell centering wingers Andrew Cogliano and Jakob Silfverberg and Antoine Vermette between Nick Ritchie and Ondrej Kase. Getzlaf should be drafted in the fifth or sixth rounds of most drafts as he is likely to get 15-20 goals and 70-80 points barring injury in 2017-18.

Capitals forward Tom Wilson has been suspended for two pre-season games for interference on Blues rookie Robert Thomas.

Wilson caught Thomas with a hit over a full second after the latter lost the puck. It's quite surprising Wilson was only suspended for two meaningless pre-season games. However, he now qualifies as a repeat offender and is eligible for a much harsher punishment the next time he is deemed to have crossed the line.

Alexander Steen is likely to start the season on the injured list.

He will miss the rest of training camp with a broken hand and will need at least a few weeks to ramp up once he is deemed healthy enough to return. Don't expect much from Steen during the month of October.

Steven Stamkos looked very good in his first game action since November of last year.

Stamkos registered two assists in the Bolts' 3-1 win Friday night and seemed back to his old self. This is great news for Stamkos owners and the Lightning coaching staff. Put the talented 27-year-old high on your draft lists next week.

Erik Karlsson looked very good in his first skate of training camp Saturday morning.

Karlsson, who is recovering from surgery to repair tendons in his foot, could be ready to start the season on time. Initially, the prognosis was that the superstar defenseman would miss a few weeks. Stay tuned for further updates.

Although Joffrey Lupul isn't seeking a second opinion after failing his physical, it now sounds like the NHL will ask an independent doctor to medically evaluate him.

Lupul failed his physical with the Maple Leafs, but then claimed on his Instagram account that the Leafs cheated. He deleted that post and apologized in a statement, calling his response "inappropriate." He added that he will not be seeking a second opinion despite the fact that it would have been within his rights to do so.

The St. Louis Blues have hired Larry Robinson to serve as a senior consultant for hockey operations.

Robinson brings with him a mountain of experience. He played in 1,384 NHL games as a defenseman and spent another 501 games as a head coach. Over his extended playing, coaching, and management career he has won the Stanley Cup nine times and has been a part of 13 trips to the Stanley Cup Final.
