Bulletin Board: Sidney Crosby Participates In "Controlled Scrimmage"

Sidney Crosby

Sidney Crosby

We’ll be trying a new Monday-Friday feature on BB this season to keep you abreast of the latest developments around the National Hockey League.

Here’s a look at what’s making headlines today:

- Sidney Crosby participated in a “controlled scrimmage” yesterday.  Crosby probably won’t be ready to start the season, but I’m betting on him returning by Thanksgiving at the latest and possibly as soon as the start of November.

- Evgeni Malkin is having a terrific preseason.  The Penguins will need him without Crosby.

“The Igloo” (the Pittsburgh Civic Center) is being demolished today.

- Matt Cooke, a frequent violator of NHL rules, pledged to change his playing style, but this isn’t a good start.

- Bruins winger Nathan Horton was concussed in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, but returned to preseason action against the Canadiens last night.  He should be good to go for the season opener.

- St. Louis Blues forward David Perron has been out of action since last November with a concussion, but he will return to the team today.

- 39-year-old Owen Nolan was invited to Vancouver Canucks’ camp on a tryout, but was cut yesterday.

- NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan continues to doll out severe punishments.  Buffalo Sabre Brad Boyes was suspended for two preseason games for this hit and James Wisniewski and Brad Staubitz were both suspended indefinitely with hearings forthcoming.

- Jaromir Jagr scored in his first preseason game on Friday night.

- The Flyers released Jagr’s old linemate, Michael Nylander, and Adam Mair from tryouts.

- Could Patrick Kane be moved to center?

- Oft-injured New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro is healthy.  For now.

- Tampa Bay’s Brett Connolly and Carolina’s Ryan Murphy are two of the top WHL prospects still hanging around with their NHL teams.

- Petr Sykora has looked sharp in the preseason and may just make the Devils.  He’s practicing today on a line with Patrick Elias and Zach Parise.
