James Neal left Friday's game against the Rangers after taking an elbow to the head.

In the third period, Neal was on his way to hitting defenseman Michael Del Zotto, who was shielding the puck, when the blueliner awkwardly stuck out both elbows and landed one right to Neal's head. Neal needed to be helped off the ice. Coach Dan Bylsma didn't have an update after the game. Neal has 18 goals and 32 points on the season.

Michael Cammalleri skated alongside Travis Zajac and Jaromir Jagr in the Devils' first training camp practice.

A lot can change between now and the start of the season, but it wouldn't be surprising if this line is used in the season opener. Jagr and Zajac already have chemistry with each other while Cammalleri was brought in to help bolster the Devils' offense. Cammalleri had 26 goals and 45 points in 63 contests with Calgary last season.

Jarome Iginla will skate alongside Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly during his first season in Colorado.

Coach Patrick Roy has already revealed how he wants his top-two lines to look prior to the start of practices at training camp. "It's exciting to get going and to be able to play with such good young players," said Iginla. "I feel like I can still do the things I've always done, but I know there will be so many other good players around me." The veteran winger was successful last season on Boston's top line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic and he should be productive again in 2014-15.

Wild goaltender Darcy Kuemper has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Minnesota at an average annual value of $1.25 million.

Kuemper posted a solid rookie season in 2013-14, going 12-8-4 with a .915 save percentage and 2.43 goals against average. Considering Thursday's news that Josh Harding will be sidelined for at least a month with a broken foot, Kuemper slots in as at least the backup goaltender out of the gate with the potential to win the starting job over Niklas Backstrom if the veteran can't get his career back on track.

Josh Harding is projected to miss a minimum of two-to-three months because of a fractured foot.

Harding apparently suffered the ailment in an off-ice altercation with a teammate. This could lead to a suspension if the Wild decide to go down that route. Harding's injury puts the team in a tough position. Ilya Bryzgalov was invited to camp on a tryout basis, as a result, and the club is still trying to negotiate with young netminder Darcy Kuemper.

Ben Bishop doesn't anticipate being limited at training camp despite his wrist not feeling quite 100 percent yet.

"The range of motion, everything is good," Bishop said. "Strength still needs to get a little stronger, but I'm able to practice with the guys, that's good. By the season starts, hopefully it'll be closer to 100 percent. I don't know if it'll ever be close to 100 percent, but it's getting better everyday. So hopefully in a couple weeks here it'll be ready to go." He's projected to practice with the Lightning on Friday.

Kimmo Timonen won't play for months, according to Flyers GM Ron Hextall.

"My desire is I want to play. But the chances of me playing are really slim," said Timonen. "That's a fact. But I'm ready and waiting to see. If there's a little chance there's a safe way for me to step on the ice, then we have a new discussion. But we don't know yet." There was some speculation that he would have to retire after being diagnosed with blood clots in his leg and his lungs, but he isn't ready to call it quits yet and wants to get back to playing.

Jaromir Jagr doesn't plan on playing his last season in 2014-15.

"I don't think that way," Jagr said. "I love the game. What I want to tell you is I don't know if it's going to be the last year in the NHL. If I stay healthy, it's not going to be my last year in hockey. I want to play until 50, maybe more. But I want to play in the NHL if I'm good enough. I don't want to just be here just to be here." The 42-year-old winger had 24 goals and 67 points in 82 games last season. Jagr said he signed a one-year contract because he likes the added pressure of having to prove himself. Coach Pete DeBoer said Jagr is in great shape and the future Hall of Famer intends to play better than he did a year ago.

Nathan Horton is out indefinitely with a back injury that has bothered him for most of the summer.

It's doubtful at this time that he will participate in training camp and he could miss the start of the regular season as well. Horton missed 40 games because of off-season shoulder surgery and he suffered an abdominal injury late in the year as well. He had five goals and 19 points in 36 games last season.

Anthony Mantha will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks due to a fractured right tibia.

He was injured Monday while playing in a rookie tournament game with Detroit's other prospects, but still finished the contest. "He's going to be in crutches for a while, take the weight off," said Red Wings GM Ken Holland. "We think somewhere around six weeks he should be back up and running and skating and from there playing. In the meantime we got lots of other people looking for opportunity." The 20th overall draft pick in 2013 was slated to compete for a roster spot at training camp, but this injury will prevent that from happening.

Evgeni Malkin has a minor undisclosed injury.

Malkin will miss the start of training camp due to the ailment. There's no reason for the Penguins to push the star player to participate in practices weeks before the start of the season.
Sep 18 - 10:56 AM

Sidney Crosby will miss the start of training camp due to an undisclosed injury.

Crosby's ailment isn't related to his previously injured wrist. Whatever it is, it's considered minor. The Penguins will be cautious with their captain when training camp opens, so he'll be held out of on-ice workouts that begin Friday.
