Detroit Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey is out indefinitely after suffering a cheek injury.

Quincey was hit by a puck that ramped up Quincey's stick and hit him in the face during the third period of Friday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Oilers at Rexall Place. He was well enough to walk out of the arena, but team doctors wanted him to get an X-Ray - which wasn't available at Rexall - and fear the pressure of flying would be too much for Quincey. He stayed behind in Edmonton with assistant trainer Russ Baumann. "We don't want him to fly in case he's got something broken," general manager Ken Holland said. "We'll find out in the morning." The Wings have Ian White and Kent Huskins available as healthy options to enter the lineup. White has more ability with the puck, and is the likelier replacement especially since the Wings also need someone to fill in for Quincey on the power play. Quincey had a goal and an assist, and was a plus-8 in 26 games. He missed two games with a rolled ankle.

Jordan Schmaltz has signed a three-year Entry Level Contract with the St. Louis Blues. Financial terms have not yet been released.

Schmaltz was the 25th overall pick in 2012 and has spent the last three seasons with the University of North Dakota. During that time, the right handed defender scored 13 goals and 64 points. The 21 year old Schmaltz is not expected to start the 2015-16 season with the Blues, but it shouldn't be too long before he makes his debut.

Dan Bylsma has been named the new head coach of the Buffalo Sabres.

The Penguins will get a 2016 third-round draft pick, which originally belonged to the New York Islanders or Vancouver Canucks, from Buffalo as compensation. It's reportedly a five-year contract. Bylsma spent five-plus seasons in Pittsburgh, where he racked up a franchise-best 252 wins and captured the Jack Adams Award in 2011.

Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur would choose Brendan Gallagher to be the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

"I like the way he plays," Lafleur said Wednesday. "He shows up every night and gives 100 percent. I think he's a great influence on his teammates. A captain shouldn't be chosen on the amount of goals he's going to score. That guy (Gallagher) really impressed me every night I saw him play. He's aggressive, he wants to win. He gets some bad shots from opponents, he takes a lot of hits and there's not too many guys on the team that work like he does." Lefleur serves as an ambassador for the Canadiens and he's never been shy about expressing his opinion of the team.

Nicklas Backstrom had arthroscopic hip surgery on Wednesday afternoon.

"Based on the nature of this procedure we are confident that Nick will be completely healthy prior to the start of the 2015-16 regular season," said a statement by the Washington Capitals. He suited up in all 82 games during the regular season for the fifth time in his career and he has played six years without missing a game. Backstrom didn't reveal an injury after the Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs and an exact timetable for his recovery could be announced after he begins rehabilitating his hip several weeks from now.

Ryan Getzlaf didn't like the way he played in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

"It started with me," Getzlaf said after Anaheim's 5-2 loss to Chicago on Wednesday night. "I was terrible." He didn't have a point, attempted only four shots, lost 11 of 15 faceoffs and finished with a minus-3 rating. Getzlaf has amassed 19 points in 15 games this playoffs and he's played very well even though he hasn't scored a goal since Game 1 of the second round against Calgary. He will look to rebound in Game 7 on Saturday night.

Former Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma has reportedly interviewed for the Buffalo Sabres vacant head coaching job.

Bylsma met with Sabres owners Terry Pegula, Kim Pegula and G.M. Tim Murray as reported by the Associated Press. Bylsma, 44, went 252-117-32 in 401 regular-season games with the Penguins and 43-45 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He won the Stanley Cup in 2009 and the Jack Adams Award in 2011, and coached Pittsburgh to four 100-point seasons, finishing no worse than second in its division before getting fired following the 2013-14 season.

Star defenseman Duncan Keith assisted on three goals in less than four minutes during the second period Wednesday night to help the Blackhawks defeat the Anaheim Ducks 5-2 in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

The seventh and deciding game of the series will be played Saturday night in Anaheim. Wednesday, there were no goals in the first period but the Hawks jumped ahead 3-0 in the second when Keith drew his 12th, 13th and 14th assists of the playoffs on goals by Brandon Saad (fifth), Marian Hossa (third) and Patrick Kane (10th). The Ducks cut Chicago's lead to 3-2 at 1:57 of the third period but Andrew Shaw scored his second goal of the post-season at 16:28 of the third to make it 4-2 for the Hawks. Shaw then found the empty net at 19:11 to cement the 5-2 victory for the Hawks. Andrew Desjardins assisted on both of Shaw's goals, his first two assists of the playoffs. Shaw also led the game in hits, with seven.

Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews may see time on the same line during Game 6.

Coach Joel Quenneville said he is considering the possibility, but the two of them were on separate lines in the morning skate. The Blackhawks have used Kane and Toews on the same line in the past and Bryan Bickell has typically been the third member of that combination. It's certainly something to keep an eye on for Wednesday night, as Chicago will look to send the Western Conference Final to a seventh game.

Peter DeBoer will be the next head coach of the San Jose Sharks, according to reports.

DeBoer was fired 36 games into the 2014-15 campaign after a 12-17-7 start to the season. The Devils missed the playoffs two straight years after losing in the Stanley Cup Final against Los Angeles. The Sharks and ex-coach Todd McLellan parted ways after the 2014-15 season after the team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2003.

Washington GM Brian MacLellan admitted that re-signing Mike Green is "probably going to be a little complicated."

Green was Washington's highest-paid defenseman last season at just over $6 million, but he had a diminished role after Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik were added to the equation. He slipped to fifth among the team's blueliners in average ice time per game (19:06) but he remained the Capitals' top option for power-play situations. Green recorded 10 goals and 45 points in 72 games last year, but he may have to take a significant pay cut to stay in Washington. We would expect him to test the market because he could probably land a much better contract elsewhere, but a return to the Caps shouldn't be completely ruled out.
