Todd Bertuzzi (leg) won't play Wednesday but he expects to play Thursday against Nashville.

"I'll be ready to play tomorrow," Bertuzzi said Wednesday after he stayed on the ice for an extra 30 minutes once the team's morning skate finished at Joe Louis Arena. "I need another hard skate. I can't come in and not be ready to play a full 60 and be big down low and finish my checks." He has been sidelined with leg and back issues since Feb. 7.

Mikael Granlund had been playing through a broken hand in the playoffs.

His recovery time is set for four-to-six weeks. Granlund had two assists in five games against St. Louis in the postseason. During the regular season, he broke out with 26 goals and 69 points in 81 matches.

Eric Staal sustained a concussion on Saturday against St. Louis when he crashed into the boards, but he is feeling better.

"It was scary. I feel fortunate with how it ended up, could've been worse," he said. "Lot of good help from everyone on the ice, trainers, doctors." Staal felt some numbness in his feet when he initially hit the boards, but the scans came back negative. He will use the summer to recover.

Erik Karlsson has revealed that he has been playing for nearly a month with two hairline fractures in his left heel.

Karlsson told ESPN that he played with the two fractures through all six games of the Senators' first-round series against the Boston Bruins. The Sens won the series in Boston Sunday. "This guy's a machine. That's what it is," Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said of the team's captain. "To be able to play that many minutes and be that good defensively and offensively, that's where he's at right now. He's at such a high level." Karlsson, who a finalist for the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman, reportedly sustained one of the injuries March 28 and the second in early April.

Marian Gaborik has undergone an unspecified procedure that will prevent him from being ready for training camp.

Gaborik will be entering the fourth season of his seven-year, $34,125,000 contract. The Kings were gambling when they signed Gaborik to a lengthy contract given his injury history and unfortunately it hasn't paid off for them. Gaborik has been limited to just 54 and 56 games in each of the last two campaigns and hasn't been productive offensively when he has played. Nevertheless Kings GM Rob Blake said Gaborik will get a clean slate when he's ready to return.

Joe Thornton was playing with a torn MCL and ACL in the playoffs.

"I've never seen a guy play with a torn MCL and ACL... It's a courageous effort as I've ever seen," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer. That's an understatement. It's amazing to think that Thornton was playing through that severe of an injury. Thornton had two assists and averaged 18:50 minutes in four postseason games, which is remarkable when you consider what he was working with. We have to wonder though if he'll be healthy enough to participate in training camp or if he might even miss a significant chunk of the 2017-18 campaign. Keep in mind that Thornton is also scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, so he might go unsigned this summer as teams wait to see how healthy the 37-year-old is come September.

Carey Price would like to sign an extension with the Montreal Canadiens.

"I want to stay here," Price said. "I know we'll figure out a way to make all the pieces fit and bring a championship here." Price is entering the final season of his six-year, $39 million contract, so he can sign an extension this summer. Locking him up will be critical for Montreal as the start netminder is the center of the team after winning the Vezina Trophy in 2015 and being a finalist again this season. The question is how big Price's cap hit will be. Henrik Lundqvist currently has the biggest cap hit of any goaltender at $8.5 million annually and Price can likely command more than that if he chooses to.

Andrei Markov would like to finish his career with the Montreal Canadiens.

Markov has completed his three-year, $17.25 million contract. He's 38 years old, but he still was an offensive contributor in 2016-17 with six goals and 36 points in 62 games. He also had a plus-18 rating and logged 21:50 minutes per contest. He's spent his entire 990 game career with Montreal and we imagine that the two sides will be able to find a common ground during their contract talks.

Dennis Seidenberg has agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million extension with the New York Islanders.

That's a raise on the $1 million he earned from New York in 2016-17 after being bought out by the Boston Bruins. He had five goals and 22 points in 73 games while averaging 19:26 minutes per contest with the Islanders this season.

Marcus Johansson scored a late tying goal and an overtime winner in Game 6 to lead the Capitals to a wild 2-1 overtime win over the Maple Leafs on Sunday evening.

Johansson's first two goals of the playoffs wrapped up a surprisingly tough first round series for the Presidents Trophy winners. After the Maple Leafs took two of the first three games, the Capitals won the final three to set up a second round date with the Penguins. Johansson, who totaled five points in the six-game series, flipped a rebound home from the top of the goal mouth to seal the deal.

Johnny Gaudreau was named a finalist for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy on Sunday.

The trophy "is an annual award given to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability." It is voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. The last member of the Flames to win it was Jiri Hudler in 2014. Bob MacMillan was the first Flame to take home the honors in 1979, when the team was still in Atlanta. Hall of Famer and Flames' Cup champion Joe Mullen won the other two times for the franchise, in 1987 and 1989.
