In case you missed it, P.A. Parenteau is out 4-6 weeks.
Colorado Avalanche right wing PA Parenteau injured his right knee on his first shift in the first period Monday against the Winnipeg Jets at Pepsi Center and is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season.
"We'll see for playoffs, but he will be out for four to six weeks," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said of Parenteau, who sustained an injury to his medial collateral ligament and wore a brace on his right leg after the game, which the Avalanche won 3-2 in overtime.
The Dallas Stars game was postponed due to Peverley collapsing on the bench. A defibrillator and CPR were needed to help him.
But for several anxious minutes on the ice, the Stars stood in stunned silence, clearly in distress, unsure what had happened to a player just six months removed from undergoing a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.
“When he dropped, it was red alert,” Ruff said after the game between Dallas and Columbus was postponed with the Blue Jackets leading 1-0 in the first period. “Don’t worry about the game. It was about getting the doctors. The players don’t want to play, and I don’t want to coach the team right now.”
Stars forward Erik Cole tried to rush into the tunnel just after Peverley was carried through, only to be turned away. He then gnawed at the thumb on one of his gloves while he waited for word on what the players would do next.
Ron MacLean will no longer be the face of hockey Night in Canada.
As he was introduced to the audience seated high inside the CBC’s downtown Toronto headquarters, Ron MacLean leaned across the dais to shake the hand of the man taking his job, telling George Stroumboulopoulos: “Don’t screw this up, it’s a big show.”
Stroumboulopoulos laughed, the good-natured jab and a handshake standing as a passing of the torch between generations, with MacLean ceding his role as host of Hockey Night in Canada as part of a broader movement that will re-shape how the game is delivered to Canadian viewers. Stroumboulopoulos was the first big name to join that change — both in terms of celebrity, and in character length.
MacLean will remain with the show, but in a more peripheral role. He will stay on as the host of Coach’s Corner, with Don Cherry, and will host a new Sunday night hockey program, featuring visits to various communities across Canada. But he will no longer be the face of what has been the flagship hockey program for generations of Canadians.
